Job Description

Remember back in February how I wrote about my husband's new job description? I recently read an article where an officer was fired for a Facebook status he posted (big surprise) that said something to the effect of "going to take out the garbage at work tonight."

Guess if I want my husband to keep his job I'd better lay off the "My husband's a garbage collector" line. :(

Fundraiser For Brian Stow

If you follow much of the EMS world, you may have heard of the SF Giants fan who was beaten in the parking lot on opening day at Dodger stadium.  He is a paramedic in the San Francisco Bay Area (near The Happy Medic's stomping grounds) and a father of two young kids.  There has been a huge outpouring of financial support from all sorts of places, including SF Giant's pitcher Tim Lincecum today announcing he is donating $25,000.  You can read about them all on the Support4Stow blog.

I was excited to see a fundraiser that speaks my language: jewelry.  Stella & Dot Jewelry, to be specific.  Go to the Support4Stow blog to see all the ways you can donate, or head straight to Stella & Dot for 100% of the commission on your purchase to be donated to Mr. Stow's family.
