The health ins. cost is not trivial, as it is for an idividual post COBRA policy, without pre-existing exclusions. The alternative(s) are far less palatable, since by age 61, which I am, one probably had stuff happen that would exclude all but one or two rare illnesses.

All in all given the circumstances it is a darn good deal. Though cheaper would be better, good luck finding a provider in a rural area who is willing to treat you for $9.99 per visit. ($9.99 is for the conceptual impact of low cost care, not reality)

I always wanted to be like him when I grew up, mainly because he was sooo cool. Just found out today from the Web that there were rumors that he was a heavy drug user. That would be disappointing.

Anyway, anybody else has seen McQueen, an avid motorcyclist, in "On any sunday", the documentary on motorcycle riding?
I remember that, very good.

Are you a motorcyclist, Khan? Would not surprise me if you are, or were.

No. Thought about it long ago.

Rode on the back of one a few times.

My "beauty parcel" from Yves Rocher (mail-order toiletries company) contained, as usual, "offers from other companies that may interest you."

These were: life insurance for people over 65; a "natural" blood-pressure supplement; sandals for people with diabetic foot problems; and women's clothing, Size 12W to 44W!

I have been ordering from YR for a long time. Until recently, the included ads used to include offers for vacations, kids' items, and kitchen gadgets.

My youngest brother calls me to tell me that I are going to be an aunt, and sure, he is kind of a late Dad, but I realize that I am old enough to be a grandma!
