The Big Red Links #5 Saturday – Thirteen New Stories!


Adding More Daily!

Welcome to The Big Red Links! 

Links are nice. They’re better when you string them together into chains…

In addition to the eleven stories shown below, each section header is also a button. It takes you to a permanent archive of all the links to date from that section.

I offer three archives, Nursing, Mental Health, and Art/Fun: one for each sections of The Big Red Links.

I eagerly invite you to:

1) Share everything you find here,

2) Comment here: otherwise I get lonely!

3) Submit material. Use The Big Red Links to share, advertise and publicize!  Contact me however you like: I list contact options at the bottom of the INTRO & Contact Info page.

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 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!

I love your comments! Please, take a moment & share.
