Welcome to The Big Red Carpet!

Links are nice. They’re better when you string them together into chains…

In addition to the eighteen stories shown below, each section header is also a button. It takes you to a permanent archive of all the links to date from that section.

I offer three archives, Nursing, Mental Health, and Art/Fun: one for each sections of The Big Red Links.

I eagerly invite you to:

1) Share everything you find here,

2) Comment here: otherwise I get lonely!

3) Submit material. Use The Big Red Links to share, advertise and publicize!  Contact me however you like: I list contact options at the bottom of the INTRO & Contact Info page.

  1. Hi Greg, I am glad you provide the list, it is so much of a convenience. You have a lot of interesting post about nurses. Greg, can I have some tips from you? My younger sister is also a nurse and as you know, nurses work on shifts. My sister has to take care of her two children on her own while at the same time struggling with her work. Her husband is working overseas. so you see, it is a hard time for her. I have been noticing she is losing weight and she looked tired most of the time. I do think she is developing mental stress. what is your advice for this type of situation?
