Nurse Aide Registry Renewal

Time really goes so fast. Because it's this time again that I have to renew my nurse aide certification. I thought I have another year to relax and don't worry about it. I know I have the wallet size certification with me that I carry in my wallet. I should've known when the registration expires. But I was surprised today when I got a renewal form in the mail from PROMETRIC. It will expire on 7/20/2011, so I have to give this form to my employer so they can fill out the information for employer verification and I will mail this before the expiration date. Renewal fee of $20 which is reimbursable is still the same 2 yrs ago.

Nurse Aide Certification is required when working in a skilled facility. It expires every two years so it needed to be renewed. If any CNA's who failed to renew their certification could lose their job.

Dancing With The Stars Season 12 Winner

Yay my guy won:)....

I've been watching Dancing with the Stars Season 12 from the very beginning. I did not have really a favorite celebrity dancer. But after couple weeks of the competition, Hines Ward and his pro-dancer partner Kym has been my favorite since. I did not know Hines before because I am not a softball fans. I only noticed him on DWTS especially on the last 4 weeks of the competition He improved every week with new moves. That's why I am very happy to learn that he is the new winner of DWTS for Season 12. Congrats Hines & Kym, I am your new fan:)

Mythbusters Proves Random Facts

Guest post by Ronny Mccullough

My family watches Mythbusters like addicts. Our satellite TV, that I got after seeing this Comparison of Cable and DirectTV, is always set on the Discovery Channel. I am proud of the fact that my family wants to learn so much, but I have a feeling they are mostly excited about the chance that Jamie and Adam will blow something up.

Though Mythbusters doesn't really answer every day questions that my children might ask, they do answer questions that I didn't know I wanted the answer to. A perfect example of this is the time that they checked to see if debris from a cannon ball being shot through a pi! rate ship really would kill someone. I never realized that I was wondering that very thing while watching the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies.

These men used to be the stuntmen and stunt creators for movies. I imagine that work must have brought up quite a few unanswerable questions about the past that drove them crazy while trying to figure out how to make the stunt look real.

My favorite part of the show is that while Adam and Jamie are working on the “big” problem, their assistants, Tory, Kari and Grant are working on a smaller myth to bust. One of their myths was can a person really pass a lie detector test if they concentrated.

This is a good show to learn random knowledge.

Tulip Time Festival Week


It's Tulip Time Week here in Holland, Michigan. The celebration begun on the 7th which is after the Cinco de Mayo celebration and will end up on Saturday, the 14th. Tourist from all over the United States and even from all over the world especially Europe comes here in Holland every year to witness the celebration which is basically part of the history. They come here as part of their tradition to witness the celebration all week. Everyday,all day has different activities of all ages. Downtown Holland is all packed, you see people walking all over the places wearing their dutch costumes. So, with much going on here, the unstoppable traffic is very annoying so it's hard to find parking spaces good thing we live close to downtown where we could walk if we want to. This Friday afternoon, a friend of ours is coming over to join the rest of the Hollanders in celebrating Tulip Festival Week. We are planning on going to the historic dutch windmill or to the Farm to get some good pictures of Tulip flowers of different colors.

Garden is Ready!

So it's this time of the year where we can plant spring plants in our garden for this season. So today, my husband used rototiller to cultivate the garden while I am following him raking the soil in order to have it ready for planting. We have unions that were in the garden already so I had it re-planted also. This weekend we are planning on going to the farmers market to buy some spring vegetables seedlings or plants so we can start growing veges on our own. Last night at work I was looking on catalog for plants and I was so interested of so many of vegetables that we did not get the chance to grow last year. I told my husband that we will try another variety of plants/veges that we could grow in the garden. I am planning also on ordering online from the catalog that I've seen. I just also came to realized that all veges grows on summer alone which make sense to me. I have stalks of spinach that I bought from asian store and I'm planning on planting them once it has roots already. I know spinach grow on seeds here but where I grew up we plant the stalks or the stem. Anyways, I'm getting excited to have the garden planted with different kinds of veges.
