New bulletin board

We got permission to hang a big bulletin board in the hallway of our department. We got the biggest we could possibly afford, 4 by 8 feet, the size of a sheet of drywall. It was installed this week. I decorated it with a border of printed out medical terms and a big banner that reads THIS IS WHY WE ARE CALLED MEDICAL LANGUAGE SPECIALISTS.

Then today one of the staff was complaining that she had a disease that hadn't been identified yet, so I thought, "Smith syndrome." (Her name isn't Smith, but it starts with an S.) And then I thought, Stahl solution. And we have a Murphy, but Murphy sign is already taken, so she got Murphy maneuver. Pretty soon we were all thinking up crazy medical terms for the board. It was fun and pretty silly. And now we all have a medical term, a disease, procedure, or instrument named after us. :)

I love your new head poster or is it called poster head??
Picture from rural America the way we too seldom meet it on TV or in movies.
I also admire the way you search for smiles in your hard work.

Stahl's Smile Cure for any disease.
Happy New Year.

What fun! Sometimes, we get so caught up in our work, because it is serious stuff, that we forget that it's not a bad thing to be a little silly now and then.
