Link to the official "Medicare and You 2023", recommended!

My wife and I are just back from a two hour meeting with our local HICAP office.
HICAP (the Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy Program) is, I think, unique to California, a non profit organization with offices in each county.
I suspect each state has a different Medicare "Navigator" program.

They explained the various Medicare parts, then got into the differences between Medigap and Advantage plan forms of supplementing the missing parts, and did so without showing any bias.

Here is a link to the Medicare and You 2023 handbook, we were given a print copy.

My wife and I are probably going to select a higher-end Medigap plan.

Hershel Walker: "What we need to do is keep having those gas-guzzling cars..."

Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker (R): "If we was ready for the green agenda, I'd raise my hand right now. But we're not ready right now ... What we need to do is keep having those gas-guzzling cars, 'cause we got the good emissions under those cars."



The way the GOP is exploiting this man is criminal. Surely, the voters will know what to do in December.

Just in case, I'm making another donation to Warnock.

iCloud clusterf***. Please advise re deleted files.

Hi all.

I'm confused by iCloud and have a new iMac and new Macbook Pro.

Shortcuts to iCloud folders used up all the free space on the MBP and it seemed to be OK to drag the shortcuts to the trash, hoping that those folders and files would stay in my iCloud account.

Apparently I was wrong and the files are gone and I don't even see a way to recover them per apple instructions in this apple page:


Any suggestions?
