Hi #Google. I don't want #Gmail to suggest my Google+ connections as recipients, even if we haven't exchanged email addresses yet. I don't know anyone who wants that feature. The online world is probably already too small and our privacy is already too hard to protect. Thanks, though.

As part of the "LaZoom" bus tour in town, one of the owners dresses up as a catholic nun with a drag-flamboyant attitude and rides this bike around town:

Not quite 14' but hilarious if you happen to catch it!

Happy the #Giants are addressing a huge need on the offensive line! May not have been the sexiest pick, but it's exactly what they needed on offense.

Also, this is awesome: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/04/26/justin-pugh-gets-mauled-after-getting-his-draft-call/

Way to end the week on a high note! The +Triangle Business Journal just published a great article by Jason deBruyn on the increased role #NursePractitioners could be playing in #healthcare , and the unnecessary restrictions they face in North Carolina. All four of the NPs quoted in the article are NCNA members, and they represented themselves - and all APRNs - incredibly well. So here's a late-Friday shoutout to Lela Hopson, Bobby Lowery, Leslie Sharpe and Deborah Varnam. Fantastic job!

#ThrowbackThursday : During World War II, US Army Hospital Ship Larkspur was deployed to the European Theater. Cost of the ship, fittings & equipment was underwritten through war bond subscriptions of NCNA and two other organizations. Click here to learn a little more about the Larkspur: http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/sh-us-cs/army-sh/usash-ag/bridgept.htm #nurses #nursing

Yesterday marked the 193rd anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale and the end of this year's National Nurses Week. Click here to see a great profile of "The Lady with the Lamp" that aired on CBS Sunday Morning. We still pay tribute to Nightingale in our logo, which features her lamp and flame along the northern border of the state outline. #nurses #nursing  
May 12, 1820, was the birthday of the founder of modern nursing, known as "The Lady With the Lamp"

Tar Heel Nurse from 50 years ago for #throwbackthursday .

Here's what the caption said: "It takes more than a wheelchair to keep Mrs. Anna Mecum, retired nurse in Asheville, from the polls on election day. Despite her 78 years and being confined to a wheelchair, she dutifully cast her ballot in a recent city election. As a member of District One, Mrs. Mecum also keeps up with her profession and its activities. She is a fine example of a nurse recognizing her duties as a citizen." #tbt #nursing
