Had a fever yesterday.............

never took my temperature, but I was hot & a blithering idiot. I was mumbling things about my nephew going to India (he's not), couldn't remember anything. I was going in and out of sleep in a chair. Crawled into bed with the clothes I wore all day, went from freezing to sweating, had a dry hacking cough.

Today I'm tired, no fever, still have a cough, and have a hell of a lot to do for tomorrow. Why can't my body realize what needs to be accomplished?

I just baked 3 loaves of pumpkin chocolate quick breads and 5 rum pound cakes.....Ask me anything

All were from scratch. I used 16 eggs, 15 cups of sugar, 3 lbs. of butter, 12 cups of flour and probably about 2 cups of rum (the most important ingredient.

I have 3 brothers and they each for Christmas get one pumpkin/chocolate bread and a pound cake. One pound cake stays at my house and a good friend gets the last pound cake along with a banana bread I made her yesterday. My friend's is a late Hanukkah gift.

F**k whoever is f***ing with the ACA website.........

I logged in and registered the first week the website was up. I don't know what my income will be for 2014 (as I was not working) and estimated it at $9000 per year. Since PA did not expand Medicaid I was not eligible for any subsidies and my insurance cost would be about $400-500 per month.

Since then I got a job and have been wanting to amend my ACA app showing my projected 2014 income. The only way to do this is to "report a life change". However that capability was not available until November 15. But November 15 came and went and it was supposed to be available in December. I went online December 1, and found it was still not available.

20 minutes ago I went to the site and find that my application does not exist. I tried to log in and found that my ID and password don't exist. I tried to register again and the site freezes.


Costco President's response............

I've been getting my prescriptions from Costco for about a year. The pharmacy team attached the label and then put heavy scotch like tape around the label and the entire vial.

I got sick and tired of trying to remove the paper from the vial in order to recycle it. I invariably just tossed the vial, as I couldn't even use a Sharpie over the tape to obliterate identifying info. About 2 months I emailed the President of Costco and asked why the Pharmacy did this and how it really stopped me from recycling, and doing the right thing.

The response I got from the President is............tape is no longer put on the vials. I just recycled two vials. I never received an email, but I know he got and answered it.

After near 3 years of unemployment..............

I have a job, if I pass the drug test (always worried about my prescription for vicodin). Will start Tuesday, driving seniors to various places. Pay $8.75 an hour and no benefits. Last job I had the pay was over $50,000 per year. I can't find anything, I get no interviews for anything even half of what I once made.

I don't qualify for Medicaid, but I did qualify today for food stamps, $200 a month retroactive to October 5. Well with a bit of help from Mom I will be able to pay the mortgage and few other bills, until the money comes in regularly. I will also have to start paying back my student loan. That payment will be based upon my income, so that won't be too bad.

Let's just hope the drug test is okay.

Explain this to me if you can..........

I have finally been able to complete my application at healthcare.gov. For my income for 2014 (projected) I filed for $8,000. This is based on my maybe, just maybe finding employment.

So, with the app filed, with $0 help from the government, my silver plan will be $486 a month. $5382 a year, WTF.

The scam email of emails..........

Now the UN is involved and will give me $500,000 because I've been scammed before. Got to love it.

I can't take it anymore.............

I can't get a job, let alone an interview. I filled out a 10 page application last week for a $10 an hour job, they won't hire me because I'm too educated. I went up to the local hospital today (supposedly their shuttle/van drivers are in need of extras). The hospital won't take a paper app & you can only apply for what's posted on line. No van driver positions listed on line.

I send out 40-50 resumes to posted positions weekly, no contact after that with hiring company. I just can't stand it any more. This is 3 years of unemployment. I'm down to my last $200 in the bank, I've got 3 brothers who don't even fucking care, they're all employed. One retired and employed.

I can't stand it anymore.

WTF, they've yet to fix the healthcare market place web site...........

If I log in and press enter, the next page shows an error. That's using internet explorer
If I log in and press enter, the next page shows an error message & also that I have a message, that's using google chrome.

I call the number to voice a complaint, and the woman who answers is an error waiting to happen.

I've been trying to get on this site since last Tuesday.

Insight from my brother on his experience as Union Steward......

brother was over yesterday and told me one of his coworkers was fired for coming to work drunk. I asked the usual questions..

Has he done this before? Answer no.
Has he been in disciplinary trouble of any kind before? Answer no.
What has the company done to employees in the past who came to work drunk? Answer, they've been sent to rehab.
is there a new person in HR, or new boss who handled this action. Answer no, same guy all the time.

My brother works at a large beer distribution warehouse. He said, "this is pretty bad to do this to a guy, when the business is in the business of selling a highly addictive substance". They even get an employee discount on the product.
