    Wifey told me that UCLA hospital, where she used to work is now paying Travel Nurses $5k a week. Big staffing issues I guess.

    They're all at work in the VA hospital in Portland.
    See, anecdotes are just gossip unless backed up by something credible and some credible stats.

    I saw the listing her coworker, who works at UCLA had sent. They even offered the wifey good money to work the week her endoscopy clinic is closed during the holidays, although she doesn't want to since it's a higher stress environment

    It's off by a little under one Million. Each person could get somewhere around $3.16.

    There use to be a Citizens bank in Oregon. I had a savings account in it. It I started saving 10 cents a week thru my grade school back in the mid 50s. I used that money and some money left to me when my grandmother died to buy my first car when I got out of the Army. They were located on State St. near 'A' avenue in Oswego.
