    Avoid TXU if you have alternatives in your area. They have “plans” where if you sign up for a year or two, I forget which, they offer a rebate then charge more per KWH than enough to make up for it. And the sales people are high pressure and keep calling if you check out the details.

    Plan F but I don’t recall if they paid any prescription costs. I have never had a drug plan as such.

    I wonder if there is an honest evidence based website that will second guess drs choices of prescription medications. With my cataract surgery I don’t recall any expensive drugs. I suppose they would be afraid to get sued or put out of business by the AMA.

    I don’t know how many prescriptions I have tossed after checking their, efficacy and side effects.

    I didn’t know this until a friend told me, that there is a high deductible Plan F(medicare supplement) which costs me about 700/year instead of 2800. The odd thing, well not so odd, I guess is that I couldn’t find a company that sold it on the net. I ended up with my friends company.

    If you live in the US of A the best plan is to get old, that is 65, as soon as you can. Above all don’t be young, education is impossible to afford and there are no decent jobs for you. Minimum wage has been going down in real dollars for years. If you can arrange it, get yourself reborn back in 1950.

    Ruth or anyone, if the FBI knocked on you door today would you let them in? What should one do? Call 911? Call a lawyer? Start recording on my phone? Are they working for us or against us now? I think I live in a police state now but am I just paranoid? Alarmist? I haven’t done anything illegal that I know of but I read in the papers, no, I mean on the internet that they are quite eager to encourage someone to commit a crime.

    Yeah, I’ve wondered about that Rorschach fella too, picked all that porn for his test.

    Apparently our brains are programmed (that might not be the scientific term) to see or recognize faces, also animals, things prevalent in our early history both as species and as individuals. Our brains are always putting two and two together but not always getting four. Interest how we have to struggle against the ‘not four’ results. Rethugs have an especially difficult time with this.

    Some of you heathens are willfully blind. Volcanoes don’t erupt for no reason. This was a warning from above, or below rather, not to elect the Raygun in the fall.

    I’ve long suspected that our god is not an old white guy, but a young black female, she even wore an afro to leave us in no doubt.

    Good morning and thanks, I’ll give this a try, I loves me my bean soups.

    However, “gifted me”, is something up with which I will not put.

    “… and the working guillotine were a bit of a surprise…”

    Finally: Oops, sorry, I didn’t know it worked.

    thanks but I don’t know what a link icon is, where to find it, or how to use it.

    Some of my ignorance is bliss, dunno about this one.

    Link is too long but Mrs. Google will show you a nice cartoon of candidates if you ask her for “They told us the wealth would trickle down”

    I’ve worn glasses, bifocals, for years so it’s not a big inconvenience. I need glasses for astigmatism anyway. I was told correcting for astigmatism with the implanted lenses is problematic.

    How did you determine it was in working order? You can tell me.

    Don’t forget the guillitines, I have an assembly line running in my garage as we speak, soon as I learn the spelling I will be hiring the Turn company to do some advertizing.

    I hope you have talked to some post op people about potential problems. They made my first lens with the wrong power and they tell me I can’t have it changed. The second one they said they checked the measurement twice. Should have sued them, this is murica.

    Good on ya! Trying eliminate critters from my diet also. One thing that makes it easier is that the meat from the super stinks, is odd colored and some kind of liquid oozes out in the pan. Dunno what they put in it but it can’t be good. Also never seems to spoil in the reefer. When I go by the meat counters I “think stink”, and move on.

    ” But as I knew fuel prices were going to drop this year……”

    I think you owe me the millions I could have made shorting oil if you had told me, but I’ll settle for a sincere apology and a heads up on what’s going to happen next.
