thanks josh, found it
12:20 am
J. C.

12:29 am

12:29 am
justafreep

ha 6 x 2, also
12:29 am
J. C.

And it can start with a 'c' - just as with 'chanukkah' or 'hanukkah'.
12:30 am
J. C.

Last two? That would be a corridor, Josh?
12:30 am
justafreep

not from the 7 j.c.
12:30 am
joshuavorbis

i'm referring to the ha7 palindrome - you're referring to a 6
12:31 am
J. C.

Oh, no - sorry! :P

louuol2004

3:01 am
BabbleRabble

nbt = no blank tile -- just another way to call attention to yourself
3:01 am
TraderKate

4:26 am
jaianniah

I am here, Kate. I am unable to sleep. I hurt.
4:26 am
TraderKate

hi there. maybe babblers check in and then decide to do it later because it's so small? the brits aren't even here!
4:27 am
jaianniah

Yes, that happens. Or they do not talk because there aren't enough people to talk to.
4:27 am
TraderKate

(((((((((((((((((((( JAI !!!! ))))))))))))))))))) >>>>>
lots of hugs to you....so sorry you are still hurting...prepare for stern lecture.. :-/
4:28 am
jaianniah

How are you doing on this puzzle?
4:28 am
TraderKate

if no one talks, how will they know there's no one to talk to?
4:28 am
jaianniah

Lots of hugs back at you, girl.
4:29 am
jaianniah

I dunno. It snowballs, though. Especially if we look like we are having a good time!
4:29 am
TraderKate

i have 113 jai, too lazy to do the math. have lost the stats now that trial is over. am now less than rookie!
4:29 am
TraderKate

are you fireworked yet?
4:29 am
ABCDE

Kate, you can get a new trial if you use a new address.
4:29 am
jaianniah

Why don't you go Pro? Do you need $$$$?
4:30 am
TraderKate

yes
4:30 am
ABCDE

Better to go pro, of course, but a possibility.
4:30 am
TraderKate

i'm doing fine without it, don't worry aboiut iut
4:30 am
jaianniah

Well, I'd be happy to pay for you!
4:30 am
TraderKate

will donate to the cause when i can
4:31 am
jaianniah

No. I would like to do this because of what you said about having a whip round to get me a laptop. THAT was about the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me here on babble!
4:31 am
TraderKate

thank you, jai. but it's not necessary....only missing a firework display and the grief of creating a profile...more work!
4:32 am
TraderKate

never really cared if i had nbt or noit anyway...just trying to finish is enough for me
4:33 am
TraderKate

didn't finish yesterday...still about 25? to go...sigh
4:33 am
jaianniah

Well, think about it. I would be happy to do it, really I would.
4:33 am
jaianniah

Yeah, I am done, btw.
4:34 am
jaianniah

It was hard for me.
4:34 am
TraderKate

don't worry your pretty little head jai. it really is fine. no one else knows that i've lost the stats, and it doesn't realky matte to me...remember i do have lickety(thank go for lickety...)
4:34 am
jaianniah

There are a lot of weird words.
4:35 am
jaianniah

Yes, I could not do this without Lickety.
4:35 am
TraderKate

good going, lots of weird words today. am struggling sinceabout 100 words down
4:35 am
jaianniah

Well, can I clue you home?
4:36 am
TraderKate

can you bear your stern lecture now?
4:36 am
jaianniah


Yes....
4:36 am
TraderKate

first things firdst jai
4:36 am
jaianniah

I have heard that before....
4:38 am
jaianniah

I truly think what is going on with my knee is inflammation from moving it around. But I have to.
4:38 am
TraderKate

okay, you have to takre care of yourself. the worsened pain started when you fell,. not dsure but suspect you aare a senior...definitely female. i am almost sure you've broken something. maybe only a green stick fracture, but a fracture nonehte less...aging bones in women are very fragile. especially if there is little physical activity, which helps keep bones strong
4:38 am
jaianniah

No more to say? Have at me!!!!
4:39 am
TraderKate

enough for you?
4:40 am
jaianniah

Yes. I didn't break anything. I smushed my left kneecap is all. It's sore and bruised but definitely not broken. And TY for the lecture. I am 4 years older than you. K?
4:41 am
TraderKate

realize you are now sitting a lot for school as well as home, but this pain isn'[t being helped by your pills which are very strong
4:41 am
TraderKate

am 48 thisd fall
4:41 am
TraderKate

we're same age ;-))
4:41 am
jaianniah

Yup. I am 52...my birthday is coming up.
4:42 am
TraderKate

hurray for birthdays!!!!
4:42 am
jaianniah

Yeah, I drip with sapphires...LOL!
4:43 am
TraderKate

it is possible to chip bones under patella jai. so you have coverage or would xrays cost you $$$$
4:43 am
TraderKate

like sapphires and amethysts and aquamarines my favs
4:44 am
jaianniah

I owe so much money it's ridiculous. I could buy a yacht. And yes, X-Rays cost lots of $$$$ because of the radiologists's fees.
4:44 am
TraderKate

is knee cap very loose and wiggly?
4:45 am
jaianniah

Nope. It's just sore, and does not hurt to walk on it. Only hurts when I climb into bed and have to kneel on it.
4:45 am
TraderKate

forgot to do facebook, shall i go friend rquet you now?
4:45 am
jaianniah

Oh, yes! I'd like that!
4:45 am
TraderKate

is there a county hospital where you could be seen free/very cheap?
4:46 am
TraderKate

so it hurts when you bend it with weight on it?
4:46 am
jaianniah

No. Not covered by my insurance. The only hospital under my plan is the one that f'd up the diagnosis of this knee and forced me to go elsewhere for aid.
4:47 am
jaianniah

No, it doesn't hurt-hurt. It has a scab, and that hurts when I bend it.
4:48 am
TraderKate

? not sure i undrstand jai. thought county facilities were free to all regardless of coverage status?
4:48 am
jacq

good morning everyone
4:48 am
jacq

heya kate and jai
4:48 am
jaianniah

Hey, Jac!
4:48 am
TraderKate

hiya jac !!!! just giving jai the third degree
4:48 am
jaianniah

No. Not in USA unless on Medicaid or Medicare, which I am not.
4:49 am
TraderKate

so no such thing as a free clinic.? what about teaching hospital or a university
4:50 am
TraderKate

sorry, jacq...will be finished the 20 questionds in a sec...how are you today?
4:50 am
jaianniah

If you have insurance, they file, and I am stuck with bad ins., so I have a LOT of co-pays. The co-pays are so high that I am talking to Consumer Credit to get the debt consolidated...
4:51 am
jacq

i'm good thanks kate
4:51 am
TraderKate

three of my favourite people on babble...jac - jacq - and jai !!! no wonder i'm so confused ;-))
4:51 am
jacq

sorry to hear it's so hard jai, hopefully Obama;s reforms will help
4:52 am
jaianniah

God, I am praying so!
4:52 am
TraderKate

that's crappy jai. suppose you can't get alternate coverage because of expense and your recent medical history?
4:52 am
jacq

over here most people don't understand the insurance system, the overheads on top of already high premiums
4:52 am
jaianniah

LOL! Kate! When you go Pro, you should be JocularKate...
4:53 am
jacq

a lot of companies won't cover pre-existing conditions
4:53 am
jaianniah

I am diabetic to boot. Uninsurable.
4:53 am
TraderKate

i'll change my name to "just confused"
4:54 am
jaianniah

I like it! But you'll always be TKate to me!
4:54 am
jacq

jai, isn't there a function in medicaid that allows coverage for people who have diabetes etc to still get medical coverage because of the complications?
4:54 am
jacq

a loop hole perhaps
4:55 am
jaianniah

To get Medicaid, you have to NOT have insurance. I do because my ass of a husband deserted me w/o divorcing me, so I am covered by his crappy insurance...
4:55 am
TraderKate

why don't i go to fracebook now...god knows what rude things my cousin graham has written...haven't been there in about 3 weeks. bbs....
tk is easy to remember...
4:55 am
jacq

damn
4:56 am
jacq

divorce him
4:56 am
jacq

you can get a divorce on grounds of abandonment
4:56 am
jaianniah

I should, but I cannot find a lawyer to take the case for free....
4:56 am
jacq

hugs jai just cos
4:57 am
jaianniah

Ty. I need them. I am going to leave now- I have to try to sleep. Read the chatlog to get caught up on my woes. Take care.

lol kate, there is no perfect system, ours is flawed too, in that it drains resources, costs far too much and doesn't provide the same level of care everywhere
5:25 am
TraderKate

us health care has been in crisis for so long, it makes me crazy!!!!!!!!!!
5:25 am
jacq

ours is almost bankrupt because there are more drains on state resources now than ever before due to the high numbers of people claiming state benefits

national health preferable to people left to die at er doors because they have no insurance
5:27 am

5:47 am

not all breeders are puppy mills, most are very responsible - here any way...breeders are well regulated by ckc
5:47 am
Kallia

I think this inbreeding should be stopped
5:48 am
jacq

too many to count kallia, at least to count and remain sane
5:48 am
Kallia

but mans'inhumanity to man is dreadful .no surprise that it extends to animals
5:48 am
jacq

the company here who used to sponsor crufts dog show has pulled out in protest at the inbreeding
5:48 am
TraderKate

not a reputable breeder obviously, and there has been a lot of harm to a lot of breeds through the years...problems will not be solved overnight
5:48 am
jacq

you can judge a society by how it treats the weakest most vulnerable among them
5:48 am
Kallia

7:26 am
TraderKate

remember us talking, southern tier somewhere?
7:26 am
Scrabbler

I would only eat grubs if I were in survivor mode
7:28 am
TraderKate

seems to me these were something the bushmen of kalahari coveted...that's where the whipped cream taste reference comes from...the interviewer tried some. ( this predated survivor by years, think wild kingdom)
7:29 am
TraderKate

lived in buffalo 3 years

flosey, can you tell me how many immunizations are required in Canada? I just found out that my grandson will have had 26 shots before he turns 2 following the USA immunization schedule!
8:54 am
redturtlehead

but sadly I cant remember what it is, except that it isnt Monarch.
8:55 am
redturtlehead

Nef, is that including all the flu and swine flu? thats a lot of injections, considering how many are now Combined Vaccinations!
8:55 am
flosey

I'd have to ask daughter Nef, she's still sleeping (I hope, was prob up in the night) will ask and let you know next time I see you
8:57 am

well peeps, I need to be off and doing stuff - hope to bbl to finish - 53 left for me. ttfn!

8:58 am
redturtlehead

99 left here, soon I will have to put in an appearance at the gym....grrr.
8:58 am
Nef

red, I don't think that counts the flu shots. I'm apallled by these numbers. I told my son to find a doctor who will work with him and spread out the immunizations. After all, the 1983 CDC recommendations or the Danish immunization schedules are much more sensible
8:59 am
redturtlehead

well Nef, the 1983 recommendations are over 20 years old, so I imagine its changed. Chicken pox for example.
8:59 am
Nef

red. is that a Vicerory butterfly? It doesn't really LOOK like it, but that is a common monarh imposter
9:00 am
redturtlehead

I have no idea, I just cant recall. I will look up viceroy.

oh ty red!!!!
9:00 am

missed
9:00 am
TraderKate

nef did a quick count on health canada web site... about 20 to age 18 mos...and a bunch more at 4-6 yrs....if shots start now...in infancy
9:00 am
Nef

true, red. But oneof the CNMs I work with and some other nurses and MDs I know all are saying that this is too much.
9:01 am
redturtlehead

It's all the shots for Hepatitis B, which seem to me to be overkill. then if they throw in the flu vacciene, which I dont like...
9:02 am
redturtlehead

Nef, it isnt a viceroy... I'm looking on a database now...

Night night sorry. I doozed off
9:09 am
Nef

thanks for the Canadian info, Kate. my grandson is now 4 months old and his parents are totally anti- mainstream medicine. They were saying NO immunizations at all ("they contain poisons" you know!), but once I started looking for information on vaccines and such; I'm starting to believe that there is a lot of over-kill for them at too young an age
9:10 am
Nef

good night herin. Sleeping bed is better than on the keyboard
9:13 am
TraderKate

am very concerned with the number of people who are withholding shots from their kids...know there is controversy...but an awful lot o misinformation too...one problem with net is people can write anything they want and someone will take it as true regardless of how much rubbish it actually is
9:13 am
redturtlehead

I'm not against things like tetanus, MMR, but Chicken pox...and hepatitis seem to me to be overkill, unless the child is at a specific risk.
9:14 am
TraderKate

as women stop breastfeeding sooner fthan they did a generation ago, the shots should robably be sooner as well...in my grandma's day they went from breast to cup...
9:15 am
Nef

that' is so true, kate. I swear my son and DIL find the farthest left (or right? -I can't decide which one is weirder) info out there and then don't think things through
9:16 am
redturtlehead

It's a difficult decision I imagine. I think though that what the people who withhold dont realize is the reason their kids dont get sick is because of the herd immunity all the other kids have.
9:16 am
harpjane

I think women are breastfeeding LONGER than they did in my generation. I was bottle fed....
9:16 am
TraderKate

c. pox was supposed to have been eradicated...but has appeared in (africa?) so not safe..especially in this day of jet travel..viruses can travel the globe as fast as the dsun...if no one has their shotds...you get the picture
9:17 am
redturtlehead

Trader, I believe you mean Small Pox, not chicken pox.
9:17 am
Nef

kate, my kids are 27 and 30 and I found the 1983 immunization schedule to be easy to do and easy on the child too. I think (but will verify for sure) that there is 1 peds. visit that the baby is supposed to get 5 vaccines at one. That is absolutely frightening to me!
9:18 am
redturtlehead

Nef, remember that a lot of the vaccienes are combined, so its probably 2 shots.
9:18 am
Nef

harp, I agree with you. Women do breast feed longer (and to the exclusion of other nourishment for baby too)
9:19 am
harpjane

how many letters in the i words please?
9:19 am
TraderKate

s. pox, yes...typing faster than thinking...
9:19 am
redturtlehead

I think another problem is that most parents these days have not seen the after effects of Polio, or Measles/Mumps...so its hard for them to imagine their kid getting it. I mean the risk of Polio in the US seems so remote...
9:19 am
TraderKate

not the women i have known these last 20 years..most were off breast by 3 mos. none longer than 6
9:19 am
redturtlehead

but in Africa, parents line theri kids up for the vacciene, I think a lot of kids there get vaccinated 5x too many because parents line them up each time there's a clinic offerring them.
9:20 am
redturtlehead

Trader, lately a lot of moms are pumping and bottle feeding breast milk for up to a year. its the new cool...
9:20 am
TraderKate

there is a huge resurgence of polio in n>amer....it is a huge problem...same with t.b.
9:20 am
Nef

red, one of the CNM's I work with gave me her schedule she devised for her kids. Parents need to be consistent and have the child immunized; but many of those don't have to be given before the child is 2
9:21 am
redturtlehead

TB though has nothing to do with Vaccination. It has more to do with immigration and drug resistance.
9:21 am
JenMO16

morning all
9:21 am
redturtlehead

nef, are you going to borrow your grandson for a week and have him secretly immunized at 2 yrs?
9:22 am
Nef

nope. the kids have agreed that he will be immunized (I've really been educating them about what *I* saw as a child and how effective vaccines are!)
9:23 am
redturtlehead

Nef, you are awesome!

9:24 am
Nef

They just will be following a different schedule than current practice. AND baby won't have any shots at 18 months (shich is when autism symptoms first show up)
9:24 am

A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people's business.

Immediatley all his friends started to post comments like "Oh my!" and such...
4:42 pm
redturtlehead

My friend is supposed to be a hard core chirstian.
4:42 pm
redturtlehead

CHristian that is.
4:42 pm
Dorens

and what does that tell you about hard core christianity?
4:43 pm
redturtlehead

I think this is mean...and I wrote them all a response saying maybe they should think about what that guy goes through each day and maybe pray for him....its not hard to be so fat...
4:43 pm
redturtlehead

Was I hypercritical?
4:43 pm
Dorens

it doesn't exactly make people holier than thou, just makes them THINK they are
4:43 pm

I mean it is hard to be that overweight...

they should be ashamed, wonder if they will
4:44 pm

guess they forgot to ask wwjd?

Shivs Fitz

Not at all torgone, it's very cruel. There but for the grace...anyone could have had the misfortune to be overweight, it's not always overeating that causes it.
4:46 pm

considering his face makes him look like he came from a horror movie,
4:46 pm
Shivs Fitz

That's right crosshair.
4:46 pm
redturtlehead

i would have thought him more sensitive!

4:47 pm
Dorens

i often feel ashamed of myself at school for responding more positively to the "cute" kids, which most teachers do. automatically, it is human nature, but sooo unfair
4:47 pm
Shivs Fitz

Maybe he's trying to make himself feel better by belittling someone else, red. Some people do!
4:47 pm
Dorens

that is exactly what he's doing shivs... but as an adult, it is pretty sad. should have gotten over that as a child
4:47 pm
redturtlehead

lots of us do, i just cant believe it...my friend...
4:48 pm
redturtlehead

i'm very sensitive about body size food etc. So now I am just soooo pissed off.
4:49 pm
redturtlehead

best to go send him a defriend message like now...
4:49 pm
Dorens

give him a chance to see how wrong he was and maybe change his ways....
4:50 pm
redturtlehead

Ahhhh one of the fun maker girls actually posted an I feel bad now message....and she should.
4:50 pm
Dorens

so you might have a very positive effect on them... people do learn from their errors, when pointed out, sometimes
4:51 pm
redturtlehead

Well, i think its one thing to look, another level to unasked, photograph a man on a bus and post it on Facebook to make fun of him.
4:52 pm
Dorens

agreed, uncalled for and cruel. but maybe you're pointing it out will help him
4:52 pm

Has he been taking Benadryl tablets for it?
6:04 pm
stidmama

I don't think so, shivs -- I suspect a localized allergic reaction to the toxin; but his energy level (before I gave him benadryl) was plenty fine
6:04 pm

Baking soda paste, made with the soda and water and applied to sting....works pretty darn well.

we used to have a tax of 7% gst(goods and services tax) and 6% pst(personal sales tax) many things had gst(gas) but not pst gas,haircuts,glasses,you get the idea..trhey want to roll it into a total harmonized sales tax of 15 percent or so right across the board for everything
6:56 pm

sooo..that will mean another 8 cents a litre or 32 cents a U.s gallon for gasoline..baby foo was exempt from pst but when this comes all will be taxed a single figure all the way across

7:09 pm
Bugsaw

We hear how people are freaking out and I think if I thot I would lose $300 every month from my paycheque I would too, but it is not that much when more peoplle pay into it.
7:10 pm
Nef

It would, Bugsaw. *Some* people have good coverage, and they assume everyone else does too. I have friends who are farmers, and their family insurance would run $1300 a month for their family under a special group plan; but that's cheaper than not having any insurance and suffer a farm accident
7:10 pm
Bugsaw

It breaks my heart ot hear of people in the US being denied insurance because they are the ones who need treatment.
7:11 pm
Bugsaw

WOW Nef! That is a huge amount!
7:11 pm
redturtlehead

It's a lot more complicated than anyone understands in cluding me. For the first time in my life this month I have had to battle with the insurance co regaridng a condiion they decided was pre-existing, except that it wasnt. I had to submit records of all my MD visits for last year....
7:12 pm
redturtlehead

and I am non plussed, since I pay for the insurance I think I should be allowed to use it.
7:12 pm
72 Temple Owl

ii pay more than that for my health insurance even with employer paying part. and still have deductibles and copays, it is not free after you pay the premium.
7:12 pm
Bugsaw

That is horrible red. That is what it is like for us if we are injured on the job. They treat you like a criminal. but for regular health care, no problem.
7:13 pm
Nef

what's worse, Bugs; is that people who have insurance are denied care or payments for needed treatment
7:13 pm
redturtlehead

TO you pay 1300 a month in premiums?
7:14 pm
72 Temple Owl

no. pay mor than$300 oer month , single insured
7:14 pm
Bugsaw

That is the part that I don't understand and thot Obama was trying to regulate. I understood he wanted you all to pay into one plan that gave you guaranteed coverage but you could keep your doctors etc. We choose our own doctors.
7:15 pm
hurshy

yeah, there was that woman profiled in "sicko" whose insurance co wanted to deny her coverage for like, cancer treatment or something, claiming pre-existing condition, because several years earlier, she'd been treated for a yeast infection.
7:15 pm
72 Temple Owl

you can and you cannot choose your own doctors. if a doctor does not want to accept a plan, you nust pay much more to see her or him
7:15 pm
redturtlehead

I think we are a little confused about exactly what Obamas plan is but I think it involves keeping your present insurance if you like it, but I think a lot of employers will immediately stop covering health insurance if there is a gov. option.

Forgive me for just entering the conversation but I just sent an email to Obama for single payer. We have Kaiser in CA and love it. If that is rationed health care, let's go for it. If the employers won't cover us, then let's have competition among the insurers as well as the govt.

Nef I have not read, what did you think???
7:21 pm

Owl it depends on what kind of "elective" surgery it is. If it is causing a lot of pain and interfereing with your life, then you go up the list faster. When I wanted to have kids and needed my tubes blown open, I got bumped a couple of times but I still got the surgery and 2 healthy boys.

true dat. but inthis country those who do not work get more health care than those who do esp those wokring poor
7:27 pm

and you know, i used to be cynical and jaded and disillusioned about politics. and then obama came along and he was saying all these things i agreed with, and i was like, yes, this is good. and i started to have a little bit of that hope stuff. and now... he's not even changing a lot of the detainee policies and stuff from the bush era! and i know with health care and a lot of stuff he's got to fight the idiotic congress, so you can't expect too much, but still, i sort of thought, if anybody has a chance to do something, this is the guy. and now i'm starting to feel like, ok, if he can't, then nobody can, and there's no point in ever bothering to vote again, because the special interests just control everything anyway!

myh dad survives on ss pays 8K to live in a hovel family home with $30K in the bank t guve him paltry interest. he makes TOO MUCH to get any kind of help - not govt cell phone, nor energy assitance to run a/c for his copd - NOTHING. man worked all his life and paid every bill he ever got in full INCLUDIN hispital bill for my aunt's long term care. IN FULL. NO HELP.
7:28 pm
redturtlehead

And its always a good idea to vote. I didnt vote one year and I really was miserable with Bush in power, I was embarassed to travel out of the country, people constantly questioned me about the man...
7:28 pm
Bugsaw

Give him time Hursh. Because he has not been in power long he doesn't have all kinds of "favours" due him but it will come.

I worked for over twenty years before succumbing -- and paid the premiums for the disability I receive
7:29 pm
hurshy

did you hear about the kid who needed a simple dental treatment, like, i think it was a filling, but his family didn't have money or insurance. well, the thing got bigger and he got some kind of infection which then spread to his brain, and THEN the ER HAS to treat him, but it was too late and he died.
7:30 pm
hurshy

i'm in a really really bad mood today, can you tell? :)
7:30 pm
Bugsaw

THAT is why universal health care works, hursh
7:30 pm
BabbleRabble

people can think of me a deadbeat if they want
7:31 pm
BabbleRabble

You speak the truth, hurshy
7:31 pm
hurshy

who thinks of you as a deadbeat? you're the most generous cluer i know!
7:31 pm

BR, I would never think that of you.
7:31 pm

I look forward to seeing you each day...

It was begun here in Canada by a guy whose child was born with a heart condition. His father was a politician who could afford the surgury so his child would live. In the next bed was another kid with the same condition whose parents could not afford it. They knew that child would die.
7:32 pm
redturtlehead

One other problem we have is that there are many free options for health care, but navigating them are very difficult, and many people do not understand or dont have the resources to get the appointments....
7:32 pm
72 Temple Owl

all i can say is i hope you all save well for your retirement you will need it. the term poor is very relative
7:33 pm
Bugsaw

He could not stand the idea that only the wealthy would be able to be healed and he spent the rest of the time going for it. (At least that is the legend and it makes sense to me)
7:33 pm
BabbleRabble

I hope you do too
7:33 pm
hurshy

i just assume i'm going to be in some crappy nursing home and treated horribly, that way if it turns out any better, i'll be pleasantly surprised.
7:34 pm
72 Temple Owl

tell me why someone who worked his while life should have to live hand to mouth in old age
7:34 pm
Bugsaw

There should not be any shame in receiving a disability pension. Are you saying that there is in the US BR?
7:35 pm
72 Temple Owl

no don't tell me, i have things to go do
7:35 pm
hurshy

we're pretty big on shame in the US, bugs. we like to lather it up good for pretty much any reason we can think of.
7:36 pm
BabbleRabble

anyone on disability is a burden to those you want to restrict health care
7:36 pm
Bugsaw

Well, except for voting in Nixon and GW, Ithink you are all doing a pretty good job. LOL
7:38 pm
hurshy

especially women. can't handle a full time job, raising your kids, volunteering at their schools and clubs, and doing all the housework? shame!
7:38 pm
Bugsaw

BR a person on disability is not lazy! I can see people getting bugged about young people living off welfare programs generation after generation, but many of them are unemployable and need income assistance anyway. There is no black and white in any of this
7:39 pm
hurshy

now that's where you're wrong, bugs, there's a LOT of black and white in all of this... grrrrr.
7:40 pm
Bugsaw

Thanks for helping me understand some of the issues I have been watching on the news. I like our health care. I like not having to justify my illness or when I got it. It is there now so lets get things back to normal with the least cost.
7:40 pm
redturtlehead

Nixon was not a bad man and he was on the way to reelection until he got stupdi and created Watergate. I gotta defend the QUaker Pres.
7:40 pm
BabbleRabble

there is no easy answer ... the only thing I know for sure is that the politicians are part of the problem
7:41 pm
hurshy

except nixon was very into making sure that health care did NOT become non-profit...
7:41 pm
Bugsaw

I am going back into the grid. (PS red, I like Quakers too and was disappointed in him when he "got stupid" too)

7:42 pm

we need to have health care, they said, but the really important thing to make sure of is that some people can make a whole shload of money off providing it...
7:43 pm

7:51 pm

I'm Nurse Manager of a prenatal clinic in a pregnancy resource center. We deal with the working poor mostly; and it's just so upsetting to see young people who have to let their own health go because they can't afford care.
7:51 pm

TY Hurshy!
7:52 pm

We help them fill out medical assistance forms because good prenatal care is cheaper than a complicated pregnancy or a child with a disability

7:54 pm
Nef

These women have health care for 60 days post partum (longer only if absolutely necessary) but I encourage them to see the dentist and eye exams, etc. so that they can be healthy once the pregnancy is done
7:54 pm

Oh to bed. I got distracted by my Facebook rant.

7:56 pm

yes, especially when they deliver in my ER...never good. Yes Nef, details of rant are posted in the earlier chat and now I am offing the computer.

7:58 pm

I tried working as a triage nurse for an insurance company for almost a year. I was so disillusioned by what we (as nurses were expected to do: it wasn't "help the caller" it was push the products!
8:00 pm
Nef

I had to tell an 82 year old man with Parkinsons' in Idaho that his nearest provider was 70 miles away! The docs in the towns near him weren't covered by his insurance; Medicare would pay for some of his care if he was hospitalized; but he'd have to pay out of pocket for the rest! AND, telling a Parkinsons' patient to drive 70 miles? Forget that!

cheetah is the mommy, and cuddlebug is one of her pups who was surrendered due to being a bit more than the family wanted/could handle
9:06 pm
Nef

I did Dan, that's why I said NM. Thanks, though! :-)
9:07 pm
lbdawger

Nef, a bunch of us followed cheetah through her whelping of her pups. we became quite attached to the little furballs. and now we're following them into their adult lives.
9:08 pm
dan2bit

we will make sure cuddlebug is spayed and has some basic obedience discipline work before we adopt her out again
9:08 pm
lbdawger

i think the spaying is going to help some of her skittishness.
9:09 pm
dan2bit

hope so - also we've no kids to trigger the 'herding' behavior
9:09 pm
Nef

That's too bad that it didn't work out. But it's good that they found out and you were nice enough to take her back.
9:09 pm
lbdawger

no, she can just practice on you and Mrs2bit! lol
9:10 pm
dan2bit

heh we don't put up with that too much
9:10 pm
Nef

That herding behavior is really hard on some kids. My sister had a dog that herded and her kids tolerated it; but my kids hated it when we would visit
9:11 pm
lbdawger

it's instinct, she can't help herself! but she does need to learn to follow commands. like stop!
9:11 pm
Minveryork

Congratulations dan2bit on fireworks! Good for you!
9:11 pm
dan2bit

yeah it can be tough on strangers of any size, but particularly small ones. Cheetah was very nippy when we first got her, but she's now very well behaved

Don't be frightened, dear .. It's just a rat ... A filthy slimy rat ..
10:34 pm
dcseain

there are undertakers in my family. and from them i learned of death/Death in way that most do not. We learn/teach it as a natural, and fitting, part of the cycle of life, which we celebrate for the living in honor of the dead. Most of us share the concept of one who escorts a soul across the veil. And that is our collective preferred personification.
