Show Notes:


  1. There was more on the racist governor. The third person in line for the office was also in black face in his year book. I think they are down to the secretary pool to take the office by now if the others resign. Who doesn't have some secret in the closet from years ago?

    The thing about our local health care system is that it takes months for them to bill you and you don't know what is in store until they spin the wheel to see how much they can get out of you. After I got the bill for $300 for my 4 knee injections ( apparently, I had 4 legs at the time) in September, I refused to go again and suffered with the pain. Now the medicare year starts again so deductibles are all in place again. I hesitate to go to the doctor because of the crazy insurance.

    Happy Valentine's Day! I heard an ad on the radio, that you could celebrate the day very cheaply with a dozen chocolate dipped strawberries for $19.99 plus shipping. They didn't say how much the shipping was, but if you didn't have much money, I don't think this would be affordable. Anything is affordable if you have the money.

  2. What are your opinions on businesses that do not accept cash?
