Topic: What good thing happened to you today?


Life isn't always pleasant, but somewhere in your day something good happened. It's time to celebrate those little things. Did the vending machine drop two Snickers instead of one? Did someone tell you how nice you looked today? Share it here and give yourself a high-five.

Life's a blast!.... and I managed to install a new hard drive in my neighbour's laptop saving her a considerable amount.

We'll see how much better it gets once I've rescued her data from the old drive, (fingers crossed)

Went swimming this morning in an over chlorinated pool.
5 hours on I'm still trying to get it out of my eyes haha.
The stinging isn't fun, but the swim was very nice.

I think I have finally manged to understand how my Canon digital camera works after 6 months of brain ache.

They should supply a 6 year old with every digital camera, video and DVD players sold.

It's off topic i know, but what model do you have? I have a cheap Nikon D3000, and a Canon S5 IS, which only cost half as much. I'm absolutely convinced the Canon is a better camera (for an idiot like me anyway)

Back on topic:

Well. I have to share this with all of you- its kinda embarrasing, but here goes...

I did cpr on a gentleman who had stopped his vehicle by the side of the road. His wife was with him and informed me that her husband was experiencing chest pain. While I was giving a lookover, the guy just stopped breathing. Next thing I know, I was over him, doing cpr...

This continued for about 10 minutes, another motorist, who stopped by, called for an ambulance, it came to the scene in about 15 minutes time, and they took over me and continued what I started.

I just got off the phone talking to the wife- her husband is alive and currently under observation in the Critical Care unit.

I said it was embarassing because I am a trained CPR provider, and a registered nurse, trained in Critical Care to boot. This is something I am used to doing when I was working in the Critical Care unit. But the feeling- wow! it is something that I thought I had missed- apparently not!

It happened this morning at about 0730hrs (Singapore time). Frankly, I am still wee bit feeling the rush every time I think about it...

Well done Viper and congratulations. You certainly don't need to feel embarrassed, you should feel proud of yourself.
