It depends on the plan. Stirling has medical/dental insurance with Sunlife too, but his dentist bills them and Stirling only pays the dentist the portion not covered by the insurance.

I love how you pay for the big posh office and two receptionist/secretaries and you still can't get the proper paperwork. Don't get me started.....

I have been parking my car on the street, since my street is all torn up. Today I found a deep, 1 cm scratch on the hood. Phooey.

Ouch Taxy! Is it something you can buff out or will it need a little more work than that? Hope you can make it disappear. I hate it when I have so much as a grease smudge on my car.

It looks like it's down to the base coat, so it will need to be filled in. I'll phone the garage I use and ask them to do it.

I don't drive and I leave all the car stuff to those in the know. As long as I can get in the passenger side and someone drive me, I am happy. So I used to wonder, "big deal, so you have a scratch. Get over it." Then someone said just one word to me and I understood. "Rust". That I understand.

Think of it as being the same as your tearing your favorite dress.

Great analogy. Specially when the tear is right in front and not on the seam. No way that can be mended. There is a reason we here in the Northeast have the undercarriage of the cars specially treated against road salt. You wouldn't find that to be a probblem in South Texas.

When I lived in Aransas Pass, Texas, in the summer the humidity was so high you could see the water running down the walls. If it wasn't mold getting you, then it was rust. You could park a car in your driveway and watch it rust away day to day right in front of your eyes. Waxing the car was a weekend family project. The little ones got the shiny chrome on the wheels. Work never hurt any of them.

Addie, they don't do that any more. Car makers are much better at preventing rust these days. Getting your car undercoated is dead.

Out here 'undercoating' used to be one useless option new car dealers used to push you to purchase.
