nap, lice, rebate

one of the benefits of retirement is a noon time nap
ive always taken one even when i was working on my
days off and on weekends
ive continued the tradition into retirement

today though i take a special nap called a lebron nap
a lebron nap is
a later in the day and a longer nap than usual so that i
can stay awake tonight to watch the miami heat and lebron
play in the fourth nba finals game

a lebron nap
a benefit of retirement

lice is now resistant to all of the otc stuff you get off the
shelf for lice
they kill some bugs but not all of them
they are resistant to the prescription stuff except for the
toxic one called malathion that you cant use on flies but
you can use on kids
doesnt seem right
it also can catch afire if you get near a flame or hair dryer
or cigarette when you use it

the dirt doctor an organic gardener has this recommendation
for lice that may work

wash the hair with tea tree shampoo and rinse with apple cider
repeat if needed
he swears it works

i have always been in favor of obamacare  the health care act
or the affordable health care act or whatever its called
if you wonder why just wait and see what happens to your health
insurance coverage and premiums if it gets repealed or determined
to be unconstitutional

(by the same people (the supreme court)
that ruled constitutional a law that allows those super pacs to support
which means control our elections)

this year many of you will be getting a rebate from your health insurance
company that is required by this law
if you live in texas the average rebate will be $194  in alaska its $305
and in pennsylvania its $243

if you get a rebate it means your insurance has been overcharging
you for premiums
im sure you have already figured that out

other things that could be lost would be
no limits on dollars covered for a life time
coverage for your kids until 26 especially those college graduates
that cant get a job
coverage for preventative care and for colonosocopy mammos etc
no preexisting conditions for kids
and others

hope i dont have to say i told you so
