Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.




I think I figured out what's wrong with health care in the USA. They have been waiting for me to retire to pay for everyone. I found out today that my former employer is charging me more than $20,000 a year for retiree medical coverage for myself and spouse. I thought the "bene" in the word benefit meant "good" ?

I realize that my wife's medical expenses are a little bit higher than mine, but I think my total medical purchases during the last 20 months after my job have been ~10 dollars for one bottle of severe headache medicine, a bottle of ibuprofen, and a box of band aids. And zero visits to see a doctor.

A little later I remembered there would also be a couple bottles of vitamin B-12 at 250 pills per bottle, so that escalates the total into the 20 dollar range, or around a dollar a month.

So I have easily spent slightly more the 10 times that much money on health care for my dog (more than $200) in that same time period, but he isn't covered by the insurance policy.
