Old Guard. They Never Retreat

But they DO need to EAT.

Bill Quick, you may know him as the guy who coined “Blogosphere”, or you may just know him as a guy as cantankerously unapologetic as ourself, could use a hand.

This blogging stuff doesn’t just do itself, you know.

We’ve already done our bit. If you can help out too, it would be great!

    Thread hijack alert. Hope I don’t get torn apart for this by the rest of you larger pups (doubt I will), but I think perhaps we should join Deej’s fill-in host in pissing him off by sending prayers, good thoughts, positive vibes or whatever is your preference. DJ is in the Hospital for surgery. Scant details at the link, but enough to know I’m willing to risk Deej’s wrath even though I don’t know him. He strikes me as a friend of the blog, despite the invective often tossed his way. Certainly our emperor likes and respects him and that’s enough for me.

    As long as one person took it off OT, why not me? Could we please discuss what’s going on in Kenya? It seems callous to ignore it.

    As much as I would like to help Bill, I just found out that my “affordable” healthcare is going from 279/mth (which I could afford, but it was tight), to 445 for a comparable policy. The CHEAPEST of their plans is 400 (which I still can’t afford.) In addition, I do not qualify for a subsidy, so my choices are 1. drop insurance (VA coverage fulfills all requirements), 2. call an agent and see if he can hook me up with something cheap, 3. go entirely VA (which sucks sometimes, and I don’t really want to), and 4. go VA sometimes and pay cash for my civilian doctor when necessary.

    None of these are particularly appealing. What is really frosting me is that all policies now…EVERY DAMN ONE OF THEM…has to include maternity and newborn, and pediatric. I am pushing 60 (the immaculate conception thing has already been done…not happening again), and I have NO need for pediatrics.
