So, in order to make money, the director has to change the whole story? The story is good as it was written.  My students liked the scenery, though.

Love your show, Jimmy! I watch it in the morning. My favorites are the songs with the Roots and major singers and the comedy/dance sketches

Story
Tagline
My name is Mary Esther; ME, hence, Emmy. I am a sister, Mom, grand mom, confidant; neighbor; confessor; and a very I dependent, feisty woman who loves to create things, especially in the kitchen"
Introduction
My great great great grandfather, who came to this country from Baden-Baden, founded the little town of La Mesa, NM, setting himself up as a baker. I hope I inherited my love for things that come out of the oven from him! I made my first cookies as a fifth grader when I used a recipe in my  arithmetic book to make chocolate drop cookies. I would find recipes everywhere: the flour sack; the oatmeal box; the cocoa can! Took Home Ec 4 years: food awakens my creative spirit!

The hospital is terribly under-staffed and badly managed. First, the admission clerks are terribly inefficient and rude. I have had many tests at MMC, and each time, it takes forever to check in, so even if I arrive early for the test, Admissions manages to make me so late that the department is calling for me. Why don't they have a system for people who come in frequently for tests, like a badge that brings up the information automatically? Other hospitals have it. As for inpatient service, the rooms do not get cleaned until sometime in the afternoon, although the staff brings the pile of linens to the room, so I just changed my own sheets every day. There were never towels in the morning to take a shower, so I used the bed sheet to dry myself. Never mind calling Housekeeping: the buck gets passed from nurse to orderly to housekeeping, and then nothing happens. Then, meals do not arrive on time, or they never arrive because the computer has "discharged" you, or someone has incorrectly tagged your record with "NPO." Just as well, as Dietary could not decide what I was supposed to be eating, so my meals were bland, sugar-free, and tasteless anyway. One day before discharge, I finally got a visit from the Dietary lady, who changed my diet yet again, so it was the only day I got my meals on time. The hallways are very noisy, for a wing that does not get much attention from the rest of the staff. Even at night, it is impossible to sleep, and people come in and out, leaving the light on, so you have to get up and turn off the light when they leave. I told my doctor that if I ever needed hospitalization, I will go to the newer hospital, or to El Paso. For the amount of money this hospital charges, we should get better service! I have been here twice; I won't be here a third time!
