Flight Review

Today I passed my Biennial Flight Review that allows me to fly for another 2 years before I need another one.

Congrats, Souschef! Glad to hear you can keep making your Angel Flights.


I'm trying to make my head stop spinning. Spent a few hours online checking out signing up for Medicare. So much government speak! I'll just call my current medical insurance provider and talk to a medicare specialist. The conversation should be brief - since Himself is happy with his plan, I'll just say "I'll take what he has".

CG, A&B supplements are pretty standard across companies. There are differences in the Rx coverage which is extra. Look for ins. co. Websites that let you price out your Rx to see which plan is best for you.

Thanks, Andy. I'm fortunate in that I don't have to worry about expensive meds. Two cheap maintenance meds, even if I were to absorb the entire cost with no insurance. After checking with Himself, it sounds like his plan will be very good coverage for me, too. Even though he is on more meds for more conditions than anyone should be, and has routine bloodwork, I don't have to write checks for out of pocket costs. His is a mid-level silver plan. Besides, after paying over $500. a month for my insurance premium through the health connector, even the best Platinum plan is looking pretty cheap to me.

Rx aside, I haven't paid a cent for medical care since I went on medicare with the A&B supplements.

Thanks for the info, Dawg! Why can't they just keep the familiar packaging colors I'm used to seeing. The noive.

Indeed! I circled round and round in the cosmetic/pharm aisles searching for the familiar blue facewipe box. Thankfully that gave DH time to peruse the men's clothing dept.

The reviews are mixed. Many say it's totally different, others say it's the same. We shall see.

I stripped the carcass of the roasted chicken. Good grief! There is a lot of meat there. We will make just enough chicken salad for two and I will break up the rest in small packets. Each packet will make two salad sandwiches.

I have to remember that with the additions of celery, mayonnaise and onions to make each packet just a wee bit smaller. Neither one of us eats more than one sandwich at a sitting.

Spike brought me a good size package of Liverwurst ends. They don't show up too often. I guess it is not one of the bigger sellers like Mortadella. I love it and will have a half sandwich tonight for my evening meal.

I know, I am one of those weird folks that love liver. Along with any other products made from it.
