What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Happy Birthday Camberly Rose

Camberly Rose turned three yesterday, but we celebrated last Saturday so as not to get in the way of the Women's Broadcast.

Biblioteca Latinoamericana

I had occasion to visit the Latin Library on First Street in San Jose.  The room where the meeting I attended had a large mural depicting a Latin theme.  I had to take several pictures to fit in the entire picture.  I also checked out the library which has a nice selection of Latin books.  I selected a poetry anthology and a Pablo Picasso book.

Del Monte Park, San Jose

 The Del Monte Park is close to where Jesse lives.  After dropping him off one day I went to the park for a walk.  This park mostly has a dog park,; ;actually two, one for little dogs and one for big dogs.  This is nice, but dogs make poop and it didn't smell too nice.  The people bringing dogs are very good at cleaning up as needed, but still it had a smell.  The park supports a couple art type works, including a pretend pond and the plaque.  There was also a built in ping pong table.  It is across Auzerais Street from the Del Monte apartments, which were built where the Del Monte processing plany use to be.

Wendy's At Work Receiving an Overhaul

Went by the Wendy's one day, and it was all tore up.  It was hard to tell what was going on; whether there hard been a fire or not.  However a couple days later a banner was up saying they were remodeling.

This is across from Valley Medical Center on Bascom Avenue in San Jose.

Health As I See It: Cultural Diversity

E-training: Cultural Diversity

Working in  county with people from all over the world it is important to have respect for people from all cultures.  I like one of the standards suggested, remember that people are individuals even inside their culture.  Other suggestions include showing respect for all people, know how your own culture influences you, be sensitive to the culture of others, provide services in a native language or through interpreter if necessary.  Culture includes customs, language, religion, ethnicity, heritage and community.
