Welcome to the zoo everyone! This is a fairly inactive site, so a lot of the “regulars” don’t check in daily. And a lot of people make a few posts and are never heard from again.

Hey Swartz, I googled WPFG and came up with World Police and Fire Games. That’s a new one on me, but it looks like a major event.

I also found a 2008 news release about the Federal Aboriginal Healing Village, and that certainly does look like a unique concept.

There’s a lot here that I’ve never heard of. Thanks for helping bring me into the 21st century……. :)

Hi everyone, it seems as if the Canadians are the only active participants on this site.

Hello,
I’m an FNG working at the penn in Santa Fe, NM. I’m an NP working the medical side. I hold the distinction of being the first provider to write an inmate up. I’m not one of those squishy feel good NP’s. I started life blue, then got into the medical side. I have only been at it about three months but I really like it. It is frustrating, I did not know I was going to be a pain specialist, I’m still not.
