Programming Note

Those who look below the fold should beware of being beset by bushels of blogger banality. 

As atonement, (for that and the alliteration) here is a cute girl riding an allosaurus.

For the past several weeks I've been driving an hour out to VA Beach to check on and run errands for a friend who recently had heart surgery. The facility he's in charges through the nose for laundry for instance. In fact they demanded $50.00 for a note to his employer. Taking umbrage at this, I asked if they could provide a copy of his discharge papers from the hospital...which they are required to do....and asked if they charged for business cards, which, naturally, they did not. Thus I was able to get documentation and contact information to his employer for free. 

Anyway, he's doing better and should be discharged next week. I'll probably be staying with him for about a few days as he cannot drive for a while.  That his neighbors have stepped up to take care of his yard and more is reassuring. In this disconnected, and frequently disfunctional age it's nice to see a community function properly. 

Friday, I received a rather unexpected $14,000.00 dollar medical bill for my second kidney surgery. My first thoughts on the matter were along these lines...
  
I'm resubmitting it obviously, but it appears to have actually gone through the insurance company, so I'm not optimistic.

Note that this blog does not actually have a format. I've been informed that this fact has bothered some people. It's still pretty much what blogs were like when this site started on Blogger in 2003 except that we've got all the cool widgets Pixy has provided.

2 Top 40, country/western, etc., I think.

3 No, no, that's a genre, not to be confused with a gender. Although, now that I think about it, if you switched those two around, no one on Tumblr would notice.
