My health insurance company sent me information suggesting that I can save money on prescriptions by ordering them through a mail-based operation called Express Scripts. So I asked my physician to transfer my prescriptions there. After more than 2 months I am yet to receive my first delivery. What the hey?
A couple of years after my family first moved to California in 1979 (coming back to America from England), my father, who loves to garden, opened a store in El Paseo de Saratoga called "Anything Herbal." It sold dried and fresh herbs, herbal tea, herbal creams, etc. #saturdayFF

One problem with being older than some is that I grew up before Roald Dahl was a thing, so never read James and the Giant Peach (or any of his books) as a kid. Made up for that yesterday. (We'd seen the movie years ago.) The best part of a pretty good Friday.
Dr came to see Josiah about his neck stiffness/pain and has recommended we take him to the ER, as he now also has swelling along his jawline, and can't open his mouth wide enough to talk or chew properly :o/
So... the total bill for 2 days in the hospital was ~$17000 (so far) not including the ER portion, and any bills direct from doctors who bill separately for their services. I've never understood how that works, since we are told by our primary physician that we need to go to the ER. Then the ER people tell us we need to be admitted...
Welp mom back in hospital she set a record for the ER doctor by having a white blood cell count over a million. But two days later now she's still sick obviously but doing just fine as she's too stubborn to let anything try and slow her from trying to escape. Pneumonia and C-diff.
So, I've determined that the source of the "laggy-ness" my tablet is exhibiting is the Chrome browser. I've switched to Firefox and it is much better in that regard. This is interesting because about 8 months ago I switched from Firefox to Chrome for the same reason. Maybe I need to clear temporary internet files? Not even sure where those are.
Having some medical tests tomorrow requiring anesthesia and clean bowels. Doing "bowel prep" today. Looked at package for the medicine and said "I can't believe this shit costs $60" and then I realized it's LITERALLY costing me $60 to shit and then I never stopped laughing. The end.
Looks like it's going to be another Dilly Bread baking day, people. I think I'm addicted. And also, possibly, I've developed a serious case of bread-baking-OCD. (At least it's healthy and relatively high in protein.)
There are city and county referendums coming up regarding the approval/rejection of proposals to include local government contributions (already promised) to a public/private/UW arts venue project in the university/downtown area. Last night I placed a yard sign to remind neighbors of the referendum date. The sign was torn down this morning. :(
So... are bitcoins "backed" by anything that constitutes tangible value? If not, wouldn't that be a good thing to build into the system? I guess I need to do some research, but based on the little bits of information I've heard over the years, it seems like a system that is readily susceptible to manipulation and deceptive practices.
I offered to drive daughter to class this morning, because it's 4 degrees (F)... she said no thanks because "it's not that cold this morning." See people? This is evidence of the insidious manner in which winter messes with our minds. Simply because it isn't -20 degrees, we think "eh, it's not so bad." Then they find us frozen like an ice cube...
I've thinking and talking about getting a ukelele for many years. I almost did so several years ago when Josh Haley was still actively posting here and would share pics of various models. And then, of course, Glen C.would post pics and comments about his own playing. I think it might be time. I need to challenge my brain,and I think a string...
