Lots of crazy numbers getting thrown around these days.

  • Liquidators always post "sale" signs (Circuit City, Mervyn's, now Gottschalks) when they're actually raising prices early on.

  • When newspapers are laying people off, forcing furloughs and reducing salaries, some still are doing "performance reviews" on the remaining staff -- for what, to rationalize ushering more out the door?

...I enjoy doing things differently and being pushed outside my comfort zone from time to time, but I also attribute many good and helpful things in my life to the value of a solid and positive routine.

It was a day when the New York Times ran a front-page story about Fresno being one of the homeless capitals of the nation (aarrrggghh!). And a day when Fresno's Economic Development Corporation launched a "buy local" campaign (right on!).

It was also a day when "The Matrix" raised its profile just a wee bit. It was supposed to be a media event in the Rotunda of Community Regional Medical Center.  Given how many reporters and editors are losing their jobs, it SHOULD have been a media event, though only two TV stations showed up.

Quicker than you can say methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, we've come to know both the importance of repeated hand-washing and that key incubators of germs include computer keyboards, public rest rooms, cell phones and doctors' neckties.

So, let us all now praise the New York Yankees who too recently have been tarred by employing bad Bazooka bubble-gum anti-heroes like A-rod. When the Yankees open their new stadium in April, it will be the first antimicrobial Major League Baseball facility.

I have been studying for a major exam...I am a member of the "American College of Healthcare Executives" and they offer the "Board of Govenor's Exam" to allow advancement and fellowship status as a credentialed healthcare leader. I've been studying key knowledge areas, prepping on test-taking strategies, identifying my potential learning gaps and trying to keep up my confidence along the way. There are colleagues locally that have been an encouragement as well.
