NOTE to Self . . .

Note to selfHappy Hump Day, All!

Yes, it is middle of the week, so much in local news as well as international, right?! There has been a “new” drug discovered that is being used on the streets that supposedly comes from Russia!!! Another wonderful gift from the Soviets, heh?! It’s called “Krokodil”, and supposedly is cheaper than heroin . . . And, it is an opiate drug that has been cured or mixed with gasoline . . . And, it rots the user’s skin away from the inside. One doctor in the USA who has been working with heroin addicts who were “slipped” krokodil instead said, “When I walked into the room of patients, all I could smell was rotting flesh!” Note to self . . .

And yes, we’ve managed to see Congress avoid the continued shut down as well as default on our national debt. Just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I will stick to no comment today. The head of the department (HHS) that has been designated to “roll out” the Affordable Care Act website has made a statement that I like as well. Now, all eyes have been on the POTUS, for sticking to his “guns” during the government shut down, and, on Kathleen Sebelius, who said, “If I had five years to get this ready, it would’ve been much much better. But, we didn’t have that much time!” She sticks to the fact that she will not resign because of the glitches in the website for the Affordable Care options. Note to self . . . “Give people a chance to do their jobs!”

I don’t know about you but I often leave “notes to myself”, either things I would like to write about, or need to research, or things on my “to do” list. Years ago, when I worked for American Express as a “learning manager” for the telephone service center, they had given us classes on how to use “The Franklin Planner” system. Ever since then, I realized the importance of leaving physical and mental “notes to self”. Give love a try! Note to self . . . Have a great day!
