On the Carpet:

Lovely! You’ll See…

Thanks to pinkdustydreams for a kind and thoughtful nomination for the One Lovely Blog award!

I suggest you swing by and see what’s going on in that house on the Blog block, so to speak. Just click HERE.

FYI, she offers 4 great tips for dealing with cold weather.


Now, I’m the last person to obey rules for the sake of it. Not my style. So I refuse to obey the rules related to seeking this award.

Excuse me a moment, folks. [What? Hmmmm. Very well]

My Editor insists that I change my mind on this one. So be it! He can be a real bear if I refuse his demands. Nag, nag, nag! Trust me, not worth it.

(BRCN Editor, here. ‘We’ at BRCN have a couple dozen job titles all, alas, filled by, well, the same person as the Author. We put up with his antics, and hope you’ll be so generous as to do the same. It gets crowded here all crammed into one skull.)


Now I’ll share some things about myself. No reason, folks! Certainly not because of any rules

(Editor again. Of course he’s following the rules… Humor him if you will):


1) I have an unusal and active sense of humor – a shock to hear and rather difficult to believe, I know. It’s true.

2) I work as a psych nurse at a teaching hospital, and as a nursing professor.

3) My dream? To create my own college of nursing of a sort, someday. It will teach nothing but people skills and related topics.

4) I have a huge bag of tricks when it comes to coaxing people in the right direction. AND, I have a nine-year old daughter who is rapidly burning through them. By my projections she’ll be running MY life in roughly two more years, given trends to date. She’s already well on her way…

5) I love skiing, and despite my best efforts to date, haven’t yet kissed a tree at high-speed. Not even once! Close calls? Yes. Mostly in my imprudent youth.

6) I have a significant – that’s jargon for serious – mental health history. Lots of depression, multiple admissions, and a suicide attempt long ago that was simply too well planned to fail. I’m both pleased and embarrassed to say, it turns out I DID fail. Who says failure is a bad thing? I’ve been feeling and doing rather well for years now, putting lessons learned to good use for others.

7) Given my unusual demographics and background – medical school trained nurse, male psych nurse admitted (twice!) a while back to the same place he now works – I’ve learned to make the most of it. I focus on teaching everyone involved how to get along better and get more good things done. It’s my destiny. A great gig!


Now, again, NOT because of any rule, I’ve decided to nominate fifteen other great blogs for this award. Here goes!








Nursing Sites:











Thanks, all!










The rules for this award are as follows:

  • Thank the person who nominated you for the award
  • Add the One Lovely Blog logo to your post

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1736 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!

2 Comments on Lovely! You’ll See…

  1. Thank you so much Greg for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog award. I was surprised and honored! I’m working through the acceptance rules and expect to post a blog later today 11/4. I enjoy reading your posts. Diverse topics, not just for nurses on nursing, they are for anyone!


    • I’m glad you like it. My treatment techniques aren’t specific to Nursing and are mostly unrelated to any illnesses, so it seemed fitting to offer broadly applicable material. Plus it’s a great excuse for my art collecting on line!
