So many of you know that I can sniff out a great deal. Check out these coasters that I had made from a vendor on EBAY.COM.

This is me at the NFL Experience when the super bowl was in Tampa. I'm standing on two pegs behind a Colts mannequin. I had 4 of these made for $7! Free Shipping!

Here's 4 of my good friend Gregg drinking a can of beer. You can do circles or squares (with rounded edges). Again these 4 were $7 with free shipping! He even put text there for free.

Great Christmas idea for your family and friends!

Mkay, so I've been way busy with my new job. I really like the work & get to really make a difference. I'm proud to say that my boss (Dr. Rose) appointed me to be south Tampa marketing manager for Rose Radiology. It's good to be noticed....

Otherwise, I've been trying to stay cool in the south FL summer. It's almost over! It's especially hot in a shirt & tie, but the company car has great AC.

Speaking of the company car, it has GPS. My managers know where I am at all times and how fast I'm going. My second week on the job, I was driving out head tech to Bradenton from Tampa. On my way back, I was going pretty fast. Apparently, the GPS service automatically generates a text message to Dr. Rose and management every time a company car goes over 12mph........they all received 8 of them within about 30 min. I didn't get in trouble, just had a good talk with management. Oops. I like to go fast.

So maybe some of you are familiar with my DW green sparkle drum set. DW is top of the line percussion, made in USA. I've played the set for the past 10 years or so. Recently, I played a Gretsch Renown series set in Guitar Center....completely blew me away. So I saved & bought one for only $700 on ebay, with cases (worth $100). I love it! I held on to the DW for a few weeks while I completely fell in love with my Gretsch kit. Then I sold the DW on ebay for $1,550! Nice little profit. Consequently, I have been slipping even deeper into my ebay addiction with all of this profit available in paypal. Relax, I moved $1,000 into savings. Here is a photo of my Gretsch, Cherry Burst color:

I took this self-portrait when I had some flowers in my kitchen. It was just a quick little random shot that ended up really cool. I love the composition of this shot.

So I re-worked it on photoshop:

Rose Radiology................

So all of the hard work is paying off. I just accepted a job with Rose Radiology! Always admired the company & wanted to work here.

So, we offer Ultrasound, MRI, CT, PET-CT, nuclear medicine and X-Ray. Allison, you know what I'm talking about. We have the 3T (3 tesla strength) MRI, the strongest allowed. Also stand-up MRI. Blah-Blah....we have the best technology available....unlike our local competition.

We have 8 centers and opening more. Such a great company & a field that I've always liked.

I've been studying with management & Radiologists. They said that I have the best clinical training out of all of the marketing reps so far! I learned how all of the images are produced, how to read them & then which doctors need which modalities.

Now, I've been communicating with doctors regarding their patients' diagnoses. Really, primary care doctors come to us for diagnosis. That's so cool! Been tested by a few doctors so far and handled it well.

By the way, we are the official imaging resource of the Tampa Bay Lightning....stanley cup champs. Our image is on the ice AND I have a lot of good tickets to give to my top referring doctors!


Been listening to this song for a while. My Morning Jacket. They're from Louisville. Such an amazing band, beautiful song. "Librarian"
