Man weekend pt 2


Friday was great, it was warm and sunny. We woke up Saturday morning to cold temps and a good soaking rain. It rained until the afternoon. So we were all cold and wet! But everyone seemed to have fun, and are already talking about our next trip. We had the biggest turn out ever. It was still a good time even if it was wet and cold. Thanks again for cooking Kyle.

Warriors pantball... Man weekend


This weekend is our big man weekend. This is where 10-20 of us go up to northern Michigan and go camping. Alot of us look forward to this trip every year. I think this is the 5th year we have done this. Most of the guys that go are Firefighters, cops, medics, or military. Who would have thought that this many alpha males in one place would be so much fun? Its a great time. No women to complicate things, Its just a truck load of male bonding. We will be playing paintball, shooting skeet, drinking, eating, and telling war stories. I'm not sure that the weather is going to cooperate. Every time I check the weather for the weekend its gets worse. Friday looks good 74 and sunny, Sunday looks good at 65 and sunny, but Saturday is forcasted for 55 and a 40% chance of rain. I hope it doesn't rain! Or at least only rains at night. Anyway pray for good weather for us! JS

Swine flu... lets get real.


Do you see how stupid I look in the gas mask? Thats how stupid this whole thing is!

WTF? Let me start by saying you can not get the swine flu by eating pork, But yet some European countries have banned pork imported from North America. Really? Ever heard of research? My next issue is the media. Is the flu really news worthy? More people died yesterday of the common flu then have died total from the swine flu outbreak. What makes this flu so important? The media has turned an illness into a global panic by using words like "outbreak and pandemic". Why? All this does is overload the EMS and hospital systems with people that are needlessly scared and have nothing more than the common cold. There is no cure for swine flu or any other flu, just take care of yourself while you are ill. All I can say is that I am really pissed off about the coverage that this thing has been getting. Why can't we all just act like grown ups? JS

AHA BLS Instructor


So I finally finished it. I got my BLS Instructor card today. I'm told that I can now tech CPR to other health care providers. I hope I don't screw up! I guess its just one more teaching tool in my tool box of life! JS
