Topic of the Week:
Maybe Red Dog's a Guelph, Hmmm???

Red Dog and I are going to have to quit meeting like this, at Cedars-Sinai Women's Cancer Center. Everybody there knows us! A nurse in the operating room said "Oh, I remember you. Nice to have you back!" Of course, Red Dog and Arnold of the Red Hair are a part of the recognition process.

You know, I've always been scared to go to doctors or dentists; it's just not a warm, welcoming experience. But this has been so different! People are so nice you want to stay and have a cup of coffee with them. They offer you hospital gowns that you don't have to untie - they unsnap at the shoulder, so even in surgery, you don't feel stripped of your identity.

They wheel me right into the operation room with Red Dog at my side. They don't take him away while I'm conscious. And I wake up to find him back under my arm, just where I left him. What a wonderful, caring place, though I would go for just visiting them with no more surgery.

I don't know how they did it, but I think they've discovered Guelphs, just like we have. Maybe there is hope that this will become a Guelph World. Of course, Red Dog's holding onto Leo Buscaglia's Love. Maybe that is the answer. But, however they managed it, Red Dog and I don't dread going there. That's quite a compliment in today's health care system.

love and peace, jeanne

    • Letters of Recommendation:

      • Letters of Recommendation: How to get me to respond to your request. Many of you need letters. If you will follow this format, I can do them quickly and make them good.
      • Dog Letters If you do not give me adequate information, but do manage to get my attention, you may end up with a dog letter. That is a letter that says that you work well with people, that you are enthusiastic, that you persist at getting things done, and that everyone likes you. Of course, my dog gets along well with people, brings his ball to them, is enthusiastic, and persists at getting them to take his ball. Everyone likes my dog. That's a dog letter. It's so general it could be about my dog. jeanne

    • Career Options You Might Not Have Considered

      • visual media and their interdependence with other means of knowing to understand that we are not totally rational creatures deciding things apart from our feelings and values. Wolfowitz (new President of the World Bank to aid developing countries AND principle advocate of the Iraq War) might feel very differently when he is exposed to visual and aural images of the poor developing countries that have not before been his primary concern. So we want to know how best to present those developing countries visually. And we might find that we can have a career doing that sort of thing, so it does reflect on us as individuals.
