When I read things like this H I realise how lucky I am to live in Wales, we dont even pay for drug prescriptions.I get 2 workouts a week free in the gym fully supervised by Cardiac Rehab nurses.They also provide cardiac diet help and very good support for my wife who has to live with me.

You are lucky! My chronic meds cost as much as my monthly groceries

We are currently getting a contract done up for an artist to do our graphics for our new game...it is going to cost us $10,000 for the graphics this time...but you need to spend upfront to reap the benefits once the game gets taken by Big Fish Games

For our first 3 games we made all the graphics ourselves but for our last game and this one, we hired an artist as people are expecting top notch graphics in their games these days, so it is best to leave it to the professionals

Yesterday was a major shopping day, so now, I'm making a list of new things I've added and thinking of ways to use them.

I just finished snow blowing the driveway. It's a lovely December day.

Yes indeed. You have three important things in life. Steve, Mum and DC. In that order.

I hear you loud and clear Bolas. I am so grateful for the medical care I get. And none of it cost me one cent. It sure makes old age not such a bad place to be.

I hope I am finally done with all the eye problems. I saw my eye surgeon yesterday for the last time. Don't have to go back for one year. And I FINALLY am able to use my reading glasses. It took less than two minutes to fix them so that I can look right through the center of the lens like I am supposed to. Not over the top. Winthrop provided the transportation to the eye clinic, I went in and the guy made the adjustment right there at the checkin window. DONE! YAY!!! Now I can get back to my sewing. I sure have missed being able to sit and do it for moments of quiet. Now I have to call my daughter and wish her a Happy Birthday. I can't believe I am the mother of a 57 y.o.
