My Christmas Cactus is confused!

Look at this precious cactus, I've had this for 6 years or maybe more. My friend Tizzy bought it for me just before he passed away. Gosh how I loved Tizz (aka Wally Tisdale) he was a miner and died way to young of lung disease. Anyway each time I look up from my sink I see this cactus only my Christmas cactus is confused. It is suppose to bloom once a year around Christmas but it bloomed on Thanksgiving day and I bet it has 20 blooms still left to go.
The blooms are huge and so absolutely beautiful, it make me remember Tizz and his huge heart he never met a stranger he was such a character. I love the color of the Christmas cactus and the gigantic blooms. Well Tizz must have a hand in this plant because it usually blooms every six months yep twice a year.

This last picture is a picture of the cactus and my back yard. As you can see I still haven't raked the leaves and one of the blooms is hiding a 5 foot high pile of branches that I can't burn until I rake the leaves or I'll burn the whole place down. So now you know Tizz knew I would need a bloomin cactus to match my personality: confused and precious. Thank you Tizzy, I miss you so much.

The medical representatives are also responsible for the well being of the patient. They are not directly responsible for this but indirectly responsible for it. For example, they supply the doctors with all the latest equipments. The doctors treat the patients with them. This is how the medical representatives benefit patients. This is what gives them a sense of reward. Unlike many other jobs, this job is much more secure. It is not affected by recessions. Health care is required by everyone at anytime. So this profession is more secure than several other professions. 1.Write down everything you like to do -- although most people may find this tedious and wonder what it has to do with career goals, it is one of the most important steps you will take. By writing down what you like and what you don't like you will have a list of traits that would work for you in a job. One's career should have nothing in common with a dead battery. In fact, job security alone will not make someone happy. Satisfaction on the job comes when one is making a difference in what he or she particularly wants to do. How many times all of us have have had to do menial tasks that got us no where? To combat the dead battery prognosis, it is important to revitalize one's career.
