Off to town in a bit -- getting very tired of MRE's lol! Also, will pick up The Goobey's new collar on the way. And prescriptions as well as food. Phew!!
"Good hunting" puddle!
Got the new collar, and it's just a "tad" large, but there's room for another hole, so no problem. See facebook for my comment about the meds. AND, got four avocados and a buncha chicken: I can put the rest of the MREs away for the next crisis, lol!Very moderate temps, even in town, and it had just barely started to sprinkle as I as unloading the car. Alas, that's all it did: under my trees, it didn't even settle the dust.
For those who don't do facebook, this was my comment. . . . I've got to wonder *who* doesn't like the ACA? And why? I just picked up a prescription, which for the past ten years has been appx $17 for thirty pills. Insurance refused to pay for it, insisted I use the generic. I tried, and it simply didn't work. The levoxyl is *already* the generic of Synthroid. Six months ago, insurance decided they might should could help me out. . . . Today, the prescription cost was $24 for ninety pills, and my co pay was $8. So $8 versus the pre-"Obamacare" price of $51. . . . PLUS, I'm getting to take what my DOCTOR prescribed instead of what the Insurance Company prescribed. . . . Go, Mr President, you have MY vote.WAY better than the Republicans' plan: Don't get sick, or if you do, die quickly.
This new set-up on HEP sucks extremely. I have to work extra hard to get any comment up. Hardly seems worth the effort any more.SusanD
For the most part I prefer the new setup. For one thing it lets me use my familiar IE rather than firing up FireFox for the sole purpose of posting here.And there's a preview option, which is nice even though I rarely use it.
Except that we don't want to do without you, Susan! ♥
Do we have other options besides Blogger?
Over at http://talkingpointsmemo.com/ they have a lot of posts about a new Obama & Co. ad with Mitt Romney singing America The Beautiful. I can't listen to it here, but will when I get home. It sounds like a true classic of political advertising.Alan in CA
Been reading older posts and saw a lot of people dissing Windows 7. I've been using it for about two years and have never had a problem. Of course I was on Vista for about two years previoiusly, and that was a horror when it first came out. Maybe Windows 7 looks good by comparison.And some of what I heard related to "appearance." I'm not sure how much of that relates to things like background colors. Since I use the accessibility option, I never see any background color except black.
Reached a stopping point in my work and not quite ready for bed, so I'll start an extended description of my trip. We took the Empire Builder out to Seattle. Comfortable, relaxing trip, although I didn't get as much reading done as I expected. In Seattle we had a little (not a lot) trouble finding the light rail station, but then had a nice comfortable ride out to the airport where the hotel shuttle picked us up. (Turned out the hotel was basically across the street from the airport. We could have walked if we'd known where the hotel was.)Beautiful weather throughout our stay in Seattle. 60s and sunny. If you know anything about Seattle you know how rare four consecutive days of sunshine is. Had a great time at the con. I was splitting time at the Phoenix table with two other people, so had time to attend the panels I was interested in. One was on The Future of Medicine, a topic I thought I knew something about. Bute everyone on the panel knew more than I did. Really interesting. And to my surprise, the con suite served three real meals a day. Didn't have to eat in the hotel restaurant at all.Then, on Sunday, on the the cruise ship. I'll describe that later.
