Onward and upward.

The other day I visited the website of my first ECD in the business (from when ECD meant you were in charge of the show.) This particular ECD left the ad business 25 years ago to write TV shows in Hollywood and since then, he's had success as an author of potboiler detective novels.

On his site, I stumbled upon a phrase he used in reference to his career as a TV writer. The phrase was "plummeting upwards."

Just now I got off the phone with the client. It appeared that the client had all hung up the phone, though the green light on the speaker phone was still on.

I almost bitched out the client because it was obvious to me that they had done none of the preparation needed for this meeting.

I almost said something nasty.

I came this close.

Then I realized the client was still on and bit my tongue.


I had almost plummeted upwards.

Medical nurse advisors participate in the education and training of medical products, such as those used for wound care, cardiac monitors, and respiratory products. In many cases, a nurses watch is the most essential piece of nursing equipment that a nurse has to have. Shes an intelligent, beautiful, polite person who is very excited about her career of becoming a nurse, Valente said. A massive study of women's health entitled "The Nurse's Health Study" found out that women who exercise 1 hour a day for Fifteen years gain around 5.7 pounds (2.6 kg). Since the time of Florence Nightingale there have been many who would have liked to follow her footsteps and dedicate their lives to this profession of helping others.
