Prompt for the Day: “Leap”

The people from the Daily Post division of Word Press came up with a completely unimaginative prompt for our daily creations “Leap“.  They added one very obvious statement-“Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.”

Guess we are on our Own!

Made me think of the trip down to Texas for new hire training after I had been working with the company for well over a year.  We had to climb up a telephone pole and using repelling equipment, repel back down to the ground.  Talk about a leap of faith!  The only thing anchoring the equipment were a bunch of computer geeks like myself.  For once we had not been drinking yet that day.  Drinking was a normal at the company.  The employer actually supplied us with all the liquor we desired!

The establishment was bought out by Sprint, the newly formed version collapsed on itself within a few years. Leaving too many unemployed technical people competing for the same jobs.  Technically, it was a huge FUBAR!  Computer people will know what I am talking about.  (So will military, since they invented the term years ago!)

Please Help Fight this Evil Disease

The medicine my neurologist has prescribed for me for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.
