Good morning, everyone:)

Morning all, happy Sunday.

howdy, sukee
6:07 am
sukee

How are you crossy?
6:07 am
crosshair

Not too bad at all, and you?
6:08 am
sukee

Awake :) Having my first coffee and enjoying the balmy weather.
6:08 am
sukee

Listening to the snow blow plowing the driveway.
6:09 am
crosshair

yes, tis a balmy minus 7 and the windows are unfrozen and I have the one in the livingroom open:)
6:09 am
crosshair

Nice to have aior circulation in this place again
6:10 am
crosshair

air
6:11 am
sukee

Spring is getting closer...
6:11 am
crosshair

yuppers:)
6:13 am
sukee

So, the apartment door lock is changed, they also put in a larger peep hole.
6:15 am
crosshair

very nice. You live in an area that requires extra security??
6:15 am
sukee

Not really.
6:17 am
crosshair

Here, except for tourist season, you can pretty well not even bother with the door locks
6:17 am
sukee

I think a lot of it might be to be able to raise the rent more this year.
6:18 am
sukee

This is a 20 floor apartment building, you never really know who is getting into the building and who actually live here. There have been break ins in the past.
6:19 am
sukee

I feel safe though, I go down at 4:30 AM and do laundry. Of course, we also have an overnight security guard.
6:20 am
sukee

Have to love it, I mistyped one word and found another.
6:24 am
crosshair

Ours is just a 4 story building
6:25 am
sukee

Of the two buildings I want to live in, after 60, one is a two story building and one is a 4 story building. In a quieter area too.
6:26 am
sukee

I have to wait until I turn 59 to apply. That will be this November.
6:29 am
crosshair

Cool
6:30 am
sukee

Geared to income too.
6:31 am
crosshair

I was disappointed this year. For years I have listed to those grey Power commercials, and how you can save a ton of money once you turn 50 on your car insurance, but when I actually able to apply this year I found out it would cost me a 1/3 more than I am paying now:(
6:32 am
crosshair

listened
6:32 am
sukee

That is too bad.
6:33 am
crosshair

Thank god our health care no longer runs through insurance companies:) or the old o.h.i.p system
6:34 am
sukee

Yes, thankfully.
6:36 am
crosshair

Much better to pay at tax time. I still remember sweating bullets trying to come up with ohip premiums every month. We learned as a country that health care for all is not optional or a frill, and should be available to every last Canadian:)
6:37 am
crosshair

Cause if we die, who will pay those taxes eh? lol

I lived in BC for a year and event though I was on unemployment I had to pay health care monthly.

If you could not afford O.H.I.P you had to go through this long arduous process to have it subsidized based on income.

Yes, they have something akin to our old ohip, which is better than what they had at least.

I doubt they can get rid of it.
6:43 am
crosshair

You are most likely right, joseph
6:43 am
sukee

Yep it's all politics.
6:45 am
josephjames

It's still a mess because the Medicaid (poor people help) is run by the states, so the expansion of that, even though the federal gov't was going to pay for most of it, some states have refused, so things haven't improved for the poor in those places.
6:46 am
crosshair

yes, they must implement some for the country as a whole, and not let different states wade through it
6:47 am
crosshair

because is one state worth any less than another as far as health coverage for its residents is concerned? I think not.
6:48 am
josephjames

But they can't. Right now they are working on making sure that if you have a concealed gun permit from one state it is valid in every other state, even if your state has virtually no restrictions and the other state has lots.
6:48 am
sukee

I think a lot of them refusing either just want Obama to look bad or they are in the pockets of those who will lose when everyone has healthcare.
6:48 am

I love how it is the United States, yet the states can do what they want most of the time.

7:02 am

No, they do not. they too x-rays and all is clear as far as they can tell. temp is normal, eyes glld. palpitated him and all they found was a lot of air in his stomach

7:02 am

x-ray was $106.00!

I believe it, an ultrasound cost me $450.

standard look-see is 65 dollars and a re-exam is 45
7:05 am

plus tax
7:05 am

And it didn't even show that much, just a misshapen bit of intestine that could be a tumor or nothing.
7:05 am
crosshair

same here, all looked clear but indifinative
7:06 am
sukee

I did not want them to do a biopsy, too expensive and he is too old.
7:06 am
crosshair

not much better than flipping a coin and guessing as far as I could tell
7:06 am
sukee

That is about it. But, at least with the steroids he is not throwing up so much. A hair ball once in a while.
7:06 am
crosshair

Good call. If he is old just an invasive biopsy can be the tipping point
7:08 am
crosshair

tried to get a pet health care card from this pet-card company but did not meet their criteria. i said 'well, If I have all the money to meet your minimum, then i would not need you, would I?"
7:10 am
sukee

You just can't win.
7:11 am
crosshair

These vets should set up their own in-house insurance. they could make a killing. I am sure 450/month premium would be ok for most so they would get 700/ per year per pet. i am sure it would balance out whith a well established practice that has its equipment already paid for
7:11 am
crosshair

$50*
7:11 am
sukee

Too logical :)
7:12 am
crosshair

I mean our first pet visted the vet once in 16 years. they would have made a killing
7:12 am
crosshair

i mean a visit for something other than shots etc
7:13 am
crosshair

And set up a co-pay of lets say 40 dollars so they do not bring the pet in for every sniffle
7:15 am

Does make sense.

Scrabbs. Good way to leave. When I first started playing Babble, you mentioned Gandalf and I thought it was a nice name for a bunny. Maybe he was calling to you to say goodbye.
7:52 am

I think he had a stroke then a seizure. I am glad it was quick and I was with him. I hate deciding when it is right to euthanize a pet.
7:53 am

He went the right way. You will have good memories of Gandalf.

I have been lazy of late, but it is now time for Crossy's quote of the day!! I really like this one..."Do not fall in love with people like me. I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people."--Caitlin Siehl

Hi TO
10:15 am

we get that problem all the time. some of the seniors in the building only drive their cars once a week and lots of unplowed spaces are a result
10:15 am
MollyL

Oh I forgot, you all move your cars to get your whole spot plowed out. They don't do that around here.
10:15 am

where are you supposed to move the car TO?
10:17 am
crosshair

When enough unplowed spaces accumulate, they order a total evacuation for an hour and clean the entire thing
10:17 am
MollyL

Most condo and apartment parking areas around here don't have enough room for all the residents to move their cars. The plow does the area behind and you deal with the sides yourself.
10:17 am

i move my car....next to the dumpster on the other side of the lot....

it's not stupid....prevents the snow from building up....
10:18 am
penquis

works fine if people move their cars...
10:19 am
MollyL

It sounds like a lot of work. First you have to dig out of your spot, then move your car, then dig it out of that spot while the rest of your spot is being plowed.
10:19 am
72 Temple Owl

i have a driveway full of ice.
10:20 am

no, molly....you move the car first before the storm comes....no shoveling until after the storm....you shovel out your car once and move it to a clean space...

i imagine a large parking lot and all the cars getting moved so then there is another area that is not plowed. seems very weird and bizarre to me.

MimiCat

Well, Soodle, after over 40 years of going into an office and watching the clock, I'm feeling very lucky now indeed....even though I had to get "old" to do so.
4:06 pm
MollyL

It sounds like a wonderful experience, Soodle. One to put in your memory book and tell the grands about.
4:06 pm
Soodle

For sure, Molls. :-)
4:07 pm
bichon

Not really snowed in, streets are cleared after yesterday's storm. But I am junt not motivated to go do anything
4:07 pm
MollyL

I'm still trying to figure out what "semi-retired" is.
4:07 pm
MimiCat

Love that your dad is so spry. I told my son I'm planning to be a really wacky old lady and he said "How could you NOT?"
4:08 pm
MimiCat

Molly, it means I get my early retirement check every month but still work and get a paycheck.
4:08 pm
Soodle

Mimi, I had a flu recently & it almost wiped me out. I hope you are recovered.
4:09 pm
MollyL

Ah, I thought getting retirement money and working was not allowed. Shows what I know.
4:09 pm
Soodle

Wow! That sounds cool, Mimi... Paycheck AND retirement check?
4:09 pm
MimiCat

It was terrible...almost went to the hospital twice. Recovered for a week or so and then had major oral surgery which put me down again. At least I've lost 10 pounds!
4:11 pm
MimiCat

You can do both, Molly, but you can only make a certain amount of money per year under full retirement age or they decrease your amount. Once you hit full retirement age, there is no limit to what you can earn otherwise.
4:13 pm
NANCY

clue for the last lo 5 please
4:13 pm
bichon

Are you talking about Social Security Mimu. I'm sorry I took mine early
4:13 pm
harpjane

these last 30 words or so are coming slowly.....
4:14 pm
MollyL

So you can hit full retirement age, collect retirement money and there is no limit to what you can earn if you work?
4:14 pm
bichon

lo___ Lenya
4:14 pm
MimiCat

Yes, bichon. I'm taking mine early because I had to but it just means it's less per month than if I waited, gambling on the fact that I'd live longer.
4:14 pm
NANCY

ty bich, should have seen that one
4:15 pm
bichon

yw Nancy
4:15 pm
MimiCat

Yes, Molly, that is correct. I'm just switching over to my ex's benefit amount now since he just hit 62 so mine is going up by a fair amount....YAY!! One of the FEW positive things about having been married to him.
4:15 pm
bichon

Mr. Bich is waiting til he's 70 so he will get a lot more
4:16 pm
MollyL

I had no idea that you could collect retirement money and still work full time.
4:16 pm
MimiCat

Actually, bichon, you get the same amount--whatever is in your account---it's just spread over a longer period of time when you take it younger so I guess it would be possible to "run out." But since I am still working, my retirement fund is still growing.
4:17 pm
bichon

No, not full time
4:17 pm
MimiCat

I only work part-time, Molly, and am limited to around $15,000 a year in earnings because they decrease the retirement amount.
4:17 pm
MimiCat

But once you're full retirement age, you can work as much as you want.
4:18 pm
bichon

I could never go back to work
4:18 pm
MollyL

Then I don't understand. Mimi said...Once you hit full retirement age, there is no limit to what you can earn otherwise.
4:18 pm
hego

That's true.
4:18 pm
NANCY

If you are at retirement age and still working full time, yes, you collect ss benefits and the rate increases every year you work. I speak from experience having worked full time 9 years past retirement age.
4:18 pm
bichon

That I don't understand, but I really wouldn't consider working.
4:19 pm
MimiCat

That's correct, Molly. And while you're working, you keep adding to your retirement fund no matter what age you are.
4:21 pm
MollyL

Yeah, but once you apply for social security benefits, there are limits to how many hours you can work. Like I said, I'm not sure what you folks are talking about but I'll just bow out now.
4:22 pm
hego

When I went to SS, they said it didn't matter how much I earned as I was over 65.
4:23 pm
MimiCat

There is only a limit to how much you can earn if you take EARLY retirement (before, for me, age 66). You still get your retirement check if you go over that amount....they just reduce the amount accordingly. After 66 there are no limits.
4:23 pm
hego

That's what I was told also.
4:24 pm
MimiCat

Often people think you get less total money if you take early retirement but it's the same amount....just spread out longer, so less per month, but not less overall.
4:28 pm
MimiCat

OK---back to my work. Have good evenings, all.

Public service announcement for US Babblers who haven't yet taken social security: The consequences for deciding when to claim make a huge difference to your financial quality of life. It turns out that most Americans claim as soon as possible (age 62) rather than wait for 'full' retirement age (for most baby boomer Babblers, that's 66) or even waiting till 70. (No advantage in waiting after you turn 70, the benefits are capped as of that age.) Benefits are determined by your age at claiming and gender, and are indexed so that if you live to your statistical average age, you should collect the same amount whether you claim early or late. But that doesn't mean it doesn't matter. (more...)
5:03 pm
periwinkle

what if you live past your statistical age?
5:03 pm
jan

More on SS: If you think you are likely to fail to reach your statistically average life expectancy--like you are in poor health--you should probably claim early. And if you think you are in better than average health and likely to live longer than average, you should claim late. You can't 'run out' of money either way--you don't really have an 'account' with social security, so if you live to 120 you'll keep collecting every month.
5:03 pm
periwinkle

and how do I find out what my statistcal age is?
5:04 pm
periwinkle

ok that answered my question. ty
5:06 pm
jan

Last comments (I promise!) If you really need the money when you hit 62, then it makes sense to claim early, even knowing that you will earn less monthly forever. But if you are working, or have a partner still working, you might well postpose so that when you are non-working you will have greater fixed monthly benefit. And there are special rules that may make claiming off a former or current spouse's benefits more valuable than claiming off your own earning record.

If you google "mortality tables", or "Society of Actuaries" or "Life Expectancies US" I'm sure that you'll get more tables about mortality rates and life expectancies than you'll ever be able to make thorough use of
5:07 pm
periwinkle

ok
5:08 pm
MollyL

Wow, when Jan has something to say, it's not just a short little "how is everyone tonight"
5:08 pm
jan

OK I lied--one more thing. Many more elderly women live in poverty than elderly men, since we usually earned less and live longer. So it's really important to figure out the rules and maximize your SS benefits. If you can't figure it out yourself--and it's complicated to make the right choice--there are websites that explain it all. The important thing is--once you make a choice, you're stuck with it or life, so it's worth making the choice that you know will be right for you.
5:10 pm
MollyL

And yes, just what I want to do...a Google search on mortality tables...
5:10 pm
jan

I guess it's because I feel so strongly about this, Molly. I wish things were easier to understand, but it makes such a huge difference to our 'golden years.' My parents made the wrong choice and if I hadn't supported them in old age, they'd have been in really tough shape.
5:12 pm
jan

back to the usual chat...

fw bye for now
5:13 pm

Bye peri...
5:15 pm
MollyL

It all depends on what kind of "work life" a person has had. The wealthy score big in retirement just like they did in their working years. No matter when they claim benefits.
5:17 pm
jan

That's true, and it doesn't even count the other savings that wealthier people are likely to have socked away. So for them, it's just a nice little bit of icing on the cake. And the richer you are, the more likely you choose to claim late because you don't need the monthly income as much. Ironic...
5:20 pm
MollyL

Your parents are fortunate to have had a wealthy child to support them in their "golden years" when they made the wrong choice. Not many people have that option.
5:22 pm
jan

So true, though most people don't think of teachers as 'wealthy.' Still, we were able to do it, and my siblings couldn't have. So I know that I (and they) were blessed in that regard.
5:23 pm
MollyL

Maybe wealthy was the wrong word. But if you are able to support two other people, as well as your own family, you have more money than most.
5:26 pm
jan

Well, it helps that we only had one kid, and she was on her own by then. And we live a reasonably frugal lifestyle, which helps, too. But given the current economic realities, so many of us are living paycheck to paycheck and simply don't have anything to spare, however much they might wish they could.
5:28 pm
MollyL

The "current economic realities" are going to skew the economy in a bad way. Paycheck to paycheck? How about all the over 50 people who are out of work and can't find a job because no one will hire that age group?
5:30 pm
MollyL

And maybe I should have said over 40 because employers are only hiring in a very limited age group at the present time.

It's really sad how the middle class has been hollowed out in recent years, and I can't see how this is going to change, as more and more jobs get eliminated by technology or outsourced.
5:32 pm
jan

Hello penquis!
5:34 pm
MollyL

When the middle class, aka...the hardest working people...get hollowed out, that is usually when there is a revolution. However, people are too lazy to do anything about what the government has done to them. It's sad.
5:38 pm
jan

I'm not sure revolution is much of an answer in the modern world, look at the disaster of the Arab Spring. And I'm not even sure that government is really the driving engine now, in a globalized economy. Governments seem powerless to implement even minor assistances like training programs, a living wage, etc. It's hard to see what can be done to reverse the trend of a fabulously wealthy tiny top of the pyramid and the rest of us with wages driven down to subsistence levels.
5:41 pm
MollyL

Governments "seem" powerless, but they are not. They choose to be, because the people in government are the fabulously wealthy.
