nov 8 2014
    I CAN ALMOST BREATHE- AND  I MAY JUST HAVE ENOUGH ENERGY TO PACK UP ALL THE EMPTY PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES THAT ARE KNEE DEEP JUST INSIDE MY DOOR--  I WAS LYING IN BED LISTENING TO THE TED LECTURES --- "PUSHING FLUIDS" AND PITCHING THE EMPTY BOTTLES AT THE DOOR.

I WONDER HOW MEGAn s doing...  she has the quiet sick kind of thing-- mine is noisy..  she took a camera picture of her tonsils- and she was worse than when she started so was on her way to an md-- one of those "doc in a box" deals.
*****
i am old enough to see the transition from a house call being paid for with a coffee can of home made beans (a preferred payment with my husband) or  a 15 minute  office call for $20-- to an insurance paid office call ( 80% of  $20) to an insurance person standing with the receptionist saying you have to  book patients 2 every 15 minutes .  when he quit private practice the ins people had  it down to  the patient had a co-pay of $10 and tom got $6.83  per visit to runbetween exam rooms..  and teh ins company  built a huge new office building in boston.... and hartford... and tom's nephew decided not to become an  md.  

and now i see the ins business sneaking in on the practice of vet medicine--- sounds so logical at the start. 

take bankers-- please do-- another system which a bunch of paper pushers get someone else to do all the actual work- 

heaven help the person who puts a vet bill on a credit card they can not immediately pay off--- and the credit card has a fancy name for charging 39% interest... i call them  indentured servants.

should be criminal.

i get that from my father -- he always hated bankers.

i've been inside too long....

i have also noticed that when you don't do much... nothing happens that is amusing to anyone.

my amusement has been reduced to collecting dryer lint in a toilet paper tube  because steve said to do that to start a fire.
*********
the people at the school wheere steve works  box up all the left overs on friday afternoon... so when he arrives  here sat morning, he has 2  piles of tinfoil pans--  one for the chickens- they will eat anything-- and one for us people-- this week diced ham...
he has gone to see if the hens have any eggs-- we have been known to have the kind of omlet-- 2 eggs and 4 pounds of diced ham--  the egg just glues the ham into a lump..  but it tastes goooood.
****
and so it goes
