Topic: blog or not to blog
“Thought I would click on the box that leads to godknowswhere.. Majorityrights I deleted from my e-mail list, not that they don't have intelligent comment. Just I get flooded with 'out there' bit like the 'shadows who followed me,' yes, but they were cunning, came in hire-car. Guess they got what they were looking for, and backed off..
Still we get the 'census,' they say is not personal, nor invasive. Who is kidding whom? Name, address, income, mortgage & 'can you feed yourself, do you need help getting to the toilet'...Isn't a bit too prying? Especially when I get an overseas call with a woman enquiring, "can I speak about your mortgage!" In future it will be the "Answering Service," that answers these calls, as I am sick of paying the extra 12dollars a month just to have number of who is calling, overseas calls an exception, comes up “unknown,” You may get hundreds of nuisance calls, a month, but to me, one is too many.
I agreed to on psychology student's homework questionnaire, then got flooded with weird O's ...Wanting answers, to all types of questionnaire. I tracked back to my work-supervisor, a social worker & her associates...She did one day, in the street, call out something about 'sorry,' like the half-hearted gesture a politician would say.
Back to the psychology department, as I can fathom, calls came from Melbourne, Australia which is not even my States Capital.”
This was the start of a letter to a fellow blogger that I did not send, but left here to consider, at a later date. Now on reflection, I won’t send by e-mail to any particular blogger instead, post it to one or more of my blogs.
Well there is some sense in not studying persons in your own state, and there is no rule in what you tell the ‘client,’ at the other end of the phone, your reasons why you are really asking her all these “survey” questions.
I am on the internet, most everyday, yet the only surveys I get are from ‘graham Young’ of the online opinion forum I am involved with most days. I have eased off getting the daily mon. to fri. postings of around 6 to 8 different topics.
There are the overseas news media, as well as capital city papers that also have a forum each. One edition that did not publish any of my comments is the Australian broadcast commission.
I do not have to return there, as there are plenty of other television & radio outlets in Australia, and more out there in the whole world.
Plenty of activity & opinions. People with too much, and others with too little. Some have much and strive for more, yet miss the everyday cuddles from their spouse, because he/she is impeded by something in their past life, or their goals are not met, or something much deeper in their psyche.
Getting back to my previous work supervisor from my work in local age care, just why was she calling “sorry,” what was ment by it? We would have to go back to the times when I worked under her supervision & was required by the ‘employer origination “ who were not really the boss, but the state & federal government that require those employed in any age care, be it an establishment where they house the elderly in hostel accommodation, an age care unit for the frail & dying clients and also what I was doing, home care, but not live in as a carer but give assistance to the clients in their home with bathing, & other personal care, as well as clean their home.
With these requirements they the government of today, require one to do a course called “age care three” which is do modules in a course that is both theory and practical.
I could manage the theory ok, re correspondence, but the other requirement, my supervisor said she was not qualified to train,!
I would have to move either to the big city, which is 180klm from my home, or to a country hospital. Eh? For something like eight hours per week.. My pay from this was going out in fees for the course!
Back a time to 1998, I resided in that city, tried a course for a fortnight in care of the intellectual disabled persons. [that is what they have been calling it…disabled or impaired]
To be continued at a later date as I am not that good at compiling a piece at one sitting & include all I wish to say in a readable well presentable manner.
