ETA: Sorry about the repostings..I decided to delete some of the content (post got to be too long).

After stating in my last post that I wouldn't participate, I've thought about it and decided to give NaBloPoMo a try! Here's the link to read all about it, but in a nutshell, the goal is to post to your blog everyday during the month of November. Any other takers??!!

Your Help Needed

The Ely-Bloomenson hospital in my beloved cabin town of Ely, MN is in a contest to win an MRI system. The video on the site(scroll down their side bar until you see the one for Ely-Bloomenson) was meant to be a spoof but the need is serious.

Excerpts from article written by Angie Riebe:
S i e m e n s Medical Solutions, a medical supply company, is giving away one magnetic resonance imaging unit to one hospital in the country. To qualify, a hospital must have 180 or fewer staffed beds and no in-house MRI system. The Ely hospital has just 25 beds and only a mobile MRI unit that is available every Tuesday

Hospitals were asked to submit a two-minute video explaining why each facility was in need of the unit. Videos can be viewed by logging on, and votes will be taken through Dec. 31. People may vote once a day from each computer.

Please help! Vote!!

Speaking of Ely, check out their temps as of 9 a.m. compared to mine-brrrr!

Cute! But in the end, I voted for the very serious and sincere entry from Hillsboro, IL, which is the closest hospital to my tee-tiny-too-small-for-its-own-hospital hometown!
