Comments: Hola Mi Amigos e Amigas!

Glad all is on the upswing. I don't think I ever actually mentioned it to you, but you all have been in my thoughts. I don't imagine that helped much; since I forgot to let you know, and my influence with the cosmic all is minimal. But I was. So there you go.

Glad to hear things are good with your wife, surgery is stressful. I still need to get my deviated septum fixed some day, unfortunately it would mean taking a month or more off from playing music.

Oh and I'd be happier with Big Pharma if they didn't charge me over $300 a month for the drugs my family will need until the imaginary day our asthma disappears.

Thanks guys.

Oorgo, believe me when I say I know *exactly* what it feels like to pay for prescriptions. I also understand that developing new drugs costs a fortune, and being a capitalist at heart, I'm not against these guys making a profit at it. They wouldn't do it if they weren't making money, but nobody else would either. I don't think they're constantly raking in mountains of cash, and they get screwed over on a regular basis by countries like Brazil, India and the entire continent of Africa. A fair bit of what you and I pay goes to subsidize the poor. I'm ok with that too, as long as I've got health care insurance.

I'm *very* glad to hear Mrs. Ted is doing OK. I gotta admit, tho, when you wrote
they stuffed a camera and laser and bone shaver up her nose
I crossed my legs (no idea why) and I squealed like a girl.

I was wondering how things were going and the no-posting left me a little teensy weensy bit concerned.

So, WOO HOO!!!!

Good to hear! Still beaming out happy thoughts as fast as I can.

As for the pharmaceutical companies, I pay $30 ort so per month for anti-histamines. Without them, my life is a complete misery for half the year and on random days for the other half. $30 ain't much to pay.

'Cause you can't cross your nose?

Great news!

I crossed my legs and squealed like a girl too...

At the good news, the thought of a 'bone shaver' AND the 1/2 mug of coffee I spilled in my lap.

But mostly at the news that you nutty kids will get to see the Nats win many, many World Series.
