Another Way | Article: Grandmas (and Grandpas) in Waiting
| Read only Another Way posts | Respond to this post |

When LaWanda and I were expecting our first born, the idea of “rooming in” was totally new idea. Our Lamaze instructor encouraged us to make sure Jonathan was placed in a bowl of warm water as soon as he was born, and many other “new up to the minute” ideas. When we told out OB/GYN we wanted to see about getting rooming in, he said he was all for it. Then he asked us what it meant. The pediatrician was just as bemused with the idea but after explaining it to him he put the request in to the hospital staff. We were the second couple to actually experience the joy and benefits of rooming in at Samaritan Hospital in Los Gatos, California.
We had several nurses stop by to see how it was going for us and they all seemed to think it was a good idea and reminded us that if we wanted some time with him out of our room, they’d be glad to take him into the nursery. Later we figured out the truth… Jonathan was such a cute baby, they all wanted to get a shot at hugging and kissing him.Once again, thank for the memories.

Media Matters | Interesting: Fruitvale Station
| Read only Media Matters posts | Respond to this post |

thank you for this review. I was not sure what Fruitvale Station was about. The trailers for the movie don't assist in engaging the viewer to want to see this movie. But your review has got my attention. I have a son that has clashed with this world, good and bad, right and wrong, gifted and wasteful, loving and selfish... And when he ran into the justice system all that was seen was the negative. it was impossible to show others and eventually himself that he was really a good man who made a bad mistake. So Fruitvale Station will get my money, because your review made it real. thank you.

I took 1 st mortgage loans when I was very young and that supported my relatives very much. Nevertheless, I need the sba loan as well.

I think that to receive the business loans from banks you must present a firm motivation. However, once I've got a auto loan, just because I wanted to buy a building.

Another Way | Article: Had It Not Been for Reading
| Read only Another Way posts | Respond to this post |

Your moving column "If not for reading," in the current North Fork Journal prompts me to [respond]. I focus on a set of adventure stories by Joseph Altsheler, [1862-1919]. A branch library a few blocks from where I grew up in Washington D.C. had dozens of books by Altsheler. When I was ten or so, I devoured all that the library had. They came in several series: on the French and Indian War, the Revolution in the backwoods of Kentrucky, the Alamo, the Civl War and World War I. I assume that many of Altsheler's books are still on library shelves. ... When I began reading them my father was delighted because he had read them when he was young, too. Thanks for your invitation to recall some of the most favorite books of my childhood.--Charles

I had many thoughts as I read your piece on bridal showers. When a friend’s daughter was getting married, they had the shower in the MCC workroom. The guests spent their visiting time working on MCC projects, because “the best visiting time is when you are working together”. I have never forgotten that, wondering what some other creative ideas might be – rather than sitting and passing around the Bed, Bath and Beyond registry gifts. Just recently, someone told me that one of the “talks” when they were doing Marriage Encounter was to tell a story from childhood that helps understand who you have become today. So as I was reading your piece, I began to imagine what it would be like to re-word that example for a shower: tell a story from your marriage that gives an idea as to what your marriage is today.

Thanks for your comments Lee and I am so sorry for your extended family's loss. We realize my husband was extremely fortunate it was not worse. He was working 72-73 hour weeks at the demand of his company, and then switched to night shift. Yes he was exhuasted. Thanks again for sharing your story. We are sorry.

Another Way | Article - driving with fatigue: Wake-Up Call
| Read only Another Way posts | Respond to this post |

Driving when you are exhausted is man's way to try to overcome poor planning - however going to sleep at the wheel can cost you a major car expense from an accident, cost you a lot of time at the doctors office, in the hgospital and rehab if you can restore the damage, or it can cost you your life. This week our nephew's wife's 24 yr old brother Tim who was also a new husband, died in a car accident going off the road asleep at the wheel. It is terrible and nothing more can be said. No consolation for the family, no words of comfort.

I am discouraged at his loss, but glad that he did not hit someone and perhaps kill them as well. I know as a strong believer he is with God, but it was so unnecessary.

So don't try to drive when exhausted - nap and then nap again if you need it. God will protect you if you use the wisdom that He gifted each of us.
