Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner…

October 7, 2011

At noon today a name was randomly drawn from those “new” subscribers to the Time to Care blog who entered the contest for an iPad2 during the ANCC Magnet Conference. And the winner is – drum roll – Maureen Raucci, Patient Services Manager for Inpatient Medical Oncology at the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven!

Congratulations Maureen! Now you can read the Time to Care blog anywhere you go…

On a less important note, but still of interest, the origin of the phrase used as a title for this post – Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner… Some years ago, Las Vegas casinos sold a chicken, vegetable and potato dinner for $1.79. During the same period of time the average gamblers winnings on a single hand of cards was $2.00; therefore, the winner had won enough money to buy the chicken dinner!

The phrase has been woven into colloquial language to express excitement over a victory or achievement…so, Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner Maureen!

Oh! and did I mention there is an iPad app for Kronos in the iTunes store…Yes! you can manage timecards on the iPad!!! Who knew…
