My thoughts on how to run a green health service. Ensuring that we put the planet and people above the desires of big business and understanding the place for health care with the cycle of life.

Your brain needs vacations
Up until the 1960's everyone worked most Saturdays -- 6 days a week, Sunday's off was the norm. Vacations were 2 weeks per year, usually in the summer and they were always a drive away. However, you always got off at 5pm, left your work at work, and a "commute" was NOT the norm., and your lovely wife had the house and kids in tiptop shape. Both weeknights and weekends were about getting together with the neighbors/friends, going to town events, picnics and kid functions. We never felt like we had to "get away" as much. With today's high inflation, both parents working, commutes, and hectic schedules -- I'd wan't a vacation too, and not necessarily from work.
