duct tape story, insurance shock, sometimes


if youve read this blog much you know i like duct tape stories
and duct tape uses
heck i just discovered thanks to a reader that the mythbuster
guys love duct tape and have done several shows on them
which i have on a dvr for review over and over again

next to my duct tape chair that i fixed up with black duct tape
this story below i think is the best duct tape use ever

dear employee due to the changes in health care we will have to make
changes in the insurance coverage
we will go from a $300 to a $500 deductible
a 90% coverage to an 80% coverage
a $5 copay for generic drugs to a $10 copay
etc etc etc
all this reduced coverage will help bring down the costs
so we will charge you not $572 but $1005 a month for the insurance

so i decided to go to the affordable care exchange here in texas
i googled it and then i remembered
mr rick decided we wouldnt participate
im sure hes well covered since he gets his vicodin from somewhere
remember that he couldnt remember those 3 things

but the feds will establish it in our state texas
who is in the last tier in health care especially for kids and women
its just not online yet

so i pretended i would be a california resident and checked the prices
for similar coverage in their new insurance exchanges
predicted cost $679 a month

guess ill be changing to the new plan when it becomes available or
moing to california


as the drought worsens here in central texas the water source for
a lot of the central texas cities keeps shrinking
lake travis is at its third most lowest level ever
with no rain in site the lake will continue to drop and probably
make records for the lowest levels ever

there is an island called sometimes island that appears when the
water level gets low
now that the level is near record lows its now called

sometimes peninsula
you can now actually walk from the shore to the sometimes
island/peninsula edge

folks we need rain and lots of it
folks we need to decrease our water use a lot
or we may be in trouble here
folks we need to xeriscape our yards
folks come stay with us at the country n for a week
and well show you how to save water
