Bravo to

Today I had the pleasure of a nice discussion with a representative of the Executive Offices of I very much appreciate the time they took to call, to listen, and to provide valuable information and solutions to every concern that I'd voiced to them and on the web.

To that end as a courtesy I have pulled my postings from Posterous, facebook, my blog, and am working on twitter right now. It's not often I'll do such things and it was not at their request. It's out of respect for an organization that's constantly working to improve their customer experience and protection of customers. Sometimes you need to speak loudly to be noticed, but when you are noticed it's amazing how quickly and correctly the results are delivered.

Amazon has assured me that they're working to remedy some things which I addressed in my postings about them and that they appreciated my taking time to bring them to their attention.

I'd like to thank Jeff Bezos for reading his email and knowing he does so is a credit to him and his organization. Also thanks to the executive offices for your handling of this situation and addressing things promptly.

Your help is greatly appreciated and I look forward to using the services offered by Amazon as well as recommending them going forward.

Best regards,

Michael Murdock, CEO

Somewhere out there is a bagel with my name on it. Of course there has to be one for the doggie as well. She's a stickler! Gotta be fresh.
Big storm coming on shore to Southern California. Let's all be civilized out there and get out of my way on the freeways! :) BE SAFE!!

That's a big thing. To hear her voice today was the only thing that made my day better. And to hear she's signed up for a walk-a-thon is amazing. I've known her for 7 years and she's been under some stress. Now she's beaten what was keeping her there and the Doctor's said "If only we'd prevented this instead of feeding it", hello??? It's called PREVENTIVE MEDICINE! Oh wait! The medical profession would rather keep you down. Not these guys!!! they're all about Preventive Medicine. So much so that it's their brand! Check them out, they're bringing some serious changes to the game.
Yes, that according to their customer service area is the truth. Found out the hard way today when my account was hacked and over $500 in good purchased, and not for my 50th birthday which is today.

Read about it over at it's stuff that EVERY PCI Compliance officer at VISA/MasterCard/Discover/American Express should read and CNN should publish and shut that place down. The public is being screwed and Bezos is laughing all the way to the bank. I'm not laughing.

My 50th was screwed up because some hack got past the gates and there was no way to stop him. should be ashamed.

Oh and please don't send the lawyers calling. This is one class action that will bite you in the backside so badly you'll be forced to close down.

And you owe me a nice birthday. I'm not easy to please.

Even the animals are humbling

This is video from youtube from the tsunami of one dog watching over another as it lays there injured. Heart breaking and warming at the same time. One can only hope these fur people were both rescued and will find good homes to care for them.

Am hopeful that those in a position of being able to give have contributed something to help. Every little bit does help all.

Bless your taking time to watch this. If you're not moved by it, I'll be surprised.

Giving care is not just about a warm place to sleep. It's about freedom of movement

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NMEDA for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's also about providing safe and reliable transportation and mobility to those you love. At NMEDA we're all about providing the safe, dependable products which allow those who are physically challenged to achieve greater mobility and freedom. Best of all, for them to do it in a safe fashion.

Through our national dealers we offer these products and services throughout the country. How do you know you've access to one of our dealers?

Simple! Just go to and on the homepage, hit the dealers locator and type in your ZIP code to see if there's a qualified dealer near you.


I did and found one within 10 miles from my home. It's that easy to spot the people who can help your loved one become more mobile and not have to depend on your being there to help them around. Freedom of mobility and independence is something we all cherish and it's great that NMEDA is out there helping our loved ones achieve this.

As a non-profit their focus is protected and satisfied clients, not pleasing the shareholders, although they look out for them as well.

No two disabled people are exactly the same. Each have different needs and require personal assessments to get the right equipment. Purchasing over the internet can sometimes be a costly and disastrous event. Using a NMEDA dealer can help avoid those costs and frustrations. NMEDA's in-person evaluations will ensure you get the right equipment the first time and get your loved ones their freedom of movement once again.

In additional to regular dealers, NMEDA has a group of what are called QAP dealers. The NMEDA Quality Assurance Program is the ONLY Nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It's based on the principles that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality. In laymen's terms, they have a refined process of ensuring your loved ones are using safe equipment and will be very happy they chose NMEDA as the source.

Helping our loved ones when they move on in years can be tough. It'd be great to find someone out there who can make that easier for both us and them. That someone is .

So take a moment if this is something you're looking for right now, or even for the future, take a look at the website, search for a dealer near you and maybe even stop in and let them know you heard about them and want to know more for the future. You'll be glad you did.

Thanks for taking time.
