I told DH about the Ripoff Report and read him some of the entries. He thinks all the entries were written by the same person and wants to know what the BBB thinks of Ripoff Report! (I'll search on that). I think I'm about ready to strangle him. I [more]

Poor Brenham. First it was HB 1903, which threatens to collapse Blinn college due to the mismanagement of funds, then Blue Bell and the luscious listeria flavor, now they have a mayoral candidate charged with indecent exposure.

Re: Who pays the 'Death Tax'?

He DOES realize that the tax is only on assets GREATER than $5.43 million, and that's NET assets, right? If he has $6 million in assets but a million of debt, that's $5 million net, so his tax exposure is zero. Also, as others have noted, if he's [more]

Re: Hip Surgery Status: Unknown

I doubt I could deal with MDH at home by myself. His mobility is limited to a laborious and painful transfer from the bed to a recliner and back again w/ the help of a PT. So that would mean a nursing hospital that could deal with the IV, as well. [more]

Re: Beginning to add up costs of mastectomy

Given the complexity of the surgery, and the number of hours you were there, that sounds about right.
