Just got my medicare billing for this period, and i am totally pee'd off. not costing me anything, but the amount companies and hospitals bill medicare and medicaid for is ridiculous.
i am on an oxygen concentrator at nights, have been for years, and about a year ago someone decided that there were too many companies being allowed to furnish the machines. the one i was using charged about $300 a month.
the new one i have to use charges $519.51 every month, and they will be out to service it once a year, unless something goes wrong with it.
i still say it would be cheaper for them to buy one outright, and if necessary get an insurance policy for maintainence. would have to be cheaper.
and just got the bill for my shot last july. at least the hospital did not bill them for the month earlier they had me go for the shot by mistake. i warned them if i saw a bill for it, i would contact medicare. they must of believed me.
the bill for the shot is as follows:
the doctor sticking his head in the room and saying hi--$49
the use of the room--$90 [took almost 5 minutes]
giving the shot [sticking the needle in my butt--$160
and lastly, the shot itself--$18,961.75
and they are now calling that shot chemo.

It all started on this, a fall football day in 1970.
George Blanda, who had played pro football for the Chicago Bears for ten
years, retired and then returned to the game as starting quarterback for
the Houston Oilers. He led the Oilers to two AFC championships, earning the
title of AFC Player of the Year in 1961.
By 1966 he was no longer the
starter for the team, but was the team’s kicker, leading the league with
116 points. Blanda was then traded to the Oakland Raiders, primarily as a

ONLY 2 MONTHS TIL CHRISTMAS!!!! FOR GETTING CLOSE TO HALLOWEEN, THAT IS SCARY
The 12-Step Program for Internet Addicts
1) I will have a cup of coffee in the morning and read my newspaper like I use to.
2) I will eat breakfast with a knife and fork and not with one hand typing.
3) I will get dressed before noon.
4) I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash the dog, get the kids
off to school, all before even thinking of the Internet.
5) I will sit down and write a letter to those unfortunate few friends and family that are Internet-deprived.
6) I will call someone on the phone who I cannot contact via the Internet.
7) I will read a book...if I still remember how.

Just got a phone call from Bryan and they've made it to their destination safely.He's having problems getting on the internet there but is trying to get on .
He says hello to all of the zoners and friends here.Wishing the best to everyone in all their games and such.

WENT FISHING MOST MORNINGS AT SUN UP.
KEPT A CRAP TRAP IN THE WATER ALL THE TIME, AND WOULD EITHER LOAD IT SOMETIMES WITH THE TIPS OF CHICKEN WINGS, OR ALL THE TIME WITH THE PARTS OF MY FISH I DID NOT WANT, IE--TAIL, FINS, GUTS, ETC. [NO COST BAIT]

When the waitress in a New York City restaurant brought him the soup of the day, the Englishman was a bit dismayed.
"Good heavens," he said, "what is this?"
"It's bean soup," she replied.
"uhm yes" he replied.
"But what is it now?"
this one is funny and sad at the same time and probably came near to being true.

Toronto Blue Jays finally win a World Series for Canada
On October 24, 1992, the Toronto Blue Jays beat the
Atlanta Braves in the sixth game of the World Series to win the
It was the first time a Canadian team had ever won the
trophy, and it was a truly international victory—the Blue Jays’ 25-man
roster included several players of Puerto Rican descent, a Jamaican,
three Dominicans and no actual Canadians.
The series itself was a bit of a nail-biter: Four of the six games
were decided by a single run, and three were won in the last at-bat. The
Braves won the first game relatively handily (that is, by two runs).
The Jays won the second 5-4 (they were trailing 4-3 when they came to
bat in the ninth), the third 3-2 (thanks to a bases-loaded single at the
bottom of the last inning) and the four...

Carter homers to win World Series
On October 23, 1993, Toronto Blue Jay Joe Carter does
what every kid dreams of—he wins the World Series for his team by
whacking a ninth-inning home run over the SkyDome’s left-field wall. It
was the first time the World Series had ended with a home run since
Pittsburgh’s Bill Mazeroski homered to break a 9-9 tie with the Yankees
in the seventh game of the 1960 series, and it was the first time in
baseball history that a team won the championship with a
come-from-behind home run.
The Blue Jays were leading the series three games to two, but thanks
to a five-run seventh inning (punctuated by a three-run blast from
outfielder Lenny Dykstra), the Philadelphia Phillies were ahead 6-5 in
the ninth. It looked like the Phils would tie the series and force a
seventh game—but then they bro...
