Good morning, E...((HUGS))...that is quite the power outage, especially for a new transformer. I can understand why the City Manager is unhappy. Thanks for the link...some unhappy city folks, and rightly so.

Just finished my homework and getting ready to go to bed.

You and Bo enjoy your Wednesday, hopefully with power all day.

WELCOME TO THE


(where our troops, allies and their families can refresh themselves)

Good morning, Everyone. Good morning to our


Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.
Sneaking in for a quick HELLO.
Things are still crazy busy BUT
hoping to be back to a normal
schedule by next week.


Fall is in the air,
but we're having a little warm up this week.

You Are Allspice
You are not as complex as you seem to others. You really just like to keep things simple.
People think you're something you're not. And you're getting a little sick of being misunderstood!

You enjoy the company of others, and you appreciate people from all walks of life. You love to learn about different points of view.
You seem familiar to strangers. People probably tell you that you remind them of someone else.
What Fall Spice Are You?

Sometimes, these quizzes never allow
one to select more than one option.
But the freaky part is the last sentence.
I really do get that a lot.

Please stay right where you are.
Keep the troops and their families entertained.

The Canteen is

Come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee, tea,
pancakes, conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM ~ DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM


FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above. Honoring those who have served before.

Whoa...this one is WAY off. LOL!! I also see that you must click on the "word" HTML for the html to appear.

You Are Cinnamon
You are warm and friendly. You are a social creature and a true extrovert.
You are welcoming, and you love to have people over to your place. You make everyone feel at home.

You are sweet, but you aren't overwhelming. You know how to be subtle with people. You have tact.
You love life, and people love to be around you. You are very popular without trying to be.

To: mylife; All
Glad I was scanning through yesterday's Canteen. The word "Tricare" grabbed me, as my late husband served in the USMC for 28 years, and trusted that Tricare would take care of my supplemental medical insurance, for the rest of my life.

"first patient in his Drs office today to be officially informed that the TRICARE no longer paid."

The following is a quote from the Army Times:

"Tricare beneficiaries should see little impact from implementation of the Affordable Care Act because the military health care system was excluded from the law and Congress later passed legislation defining Tricare as meeting the act’s insurance coverage requirements."

Affordable Care Act: No impact on Tricare, but some coverage isn't equal (click here)

Does anybody here have any information on Tricare for Life in relation to the Budget or Obama(don't)Care (also known as Unaffordable Health Care Act)?

It should be good to go, Yorkie. I don’t think the 40 mile exclusion applies to TFL, just TriCare Prime. I’ll see what I can find out from my local insurance contacts.

Aww, no rattlin’ this ol’ gal, My!

TCFL is my supplement to Medicare - and it is supposed to pay for my prescriptions over $3.00 per RX. All I ever used to pay was $3.00.

But, now, since “O” came into office, the cost has almost doubled - it now costs $5.00. (And I only get one RX a month.)

But, since I must now find a Primary Care Physician here (and most are not taking new patients), it kinda scared me, that Tricare would not cover my doctor’s appointments as a supplement insurer.

I am pretty sure, that those of us on Medicare will be seeing signs on doctor’s doors real soon - “We no longer accept Medicare Patients”.

When I get there there will be nothing, after a lifetime of contributions starting at age 14.

Good morning Pro ((HUGS))

Sneaking into the old thread. Things haven’t slowed down here yet. Hoping by next week.

We’re having a warming trend I think due to the jet stream being almost in Ma’s backyard. Plus, there’s a TS in the Gulf that will be pushing moisture up this way over the weekend.

Actually I was enjoying the cooler days. Don’t get me wrong, I like the 80s but would like to have 360 days of mid-70-80 weather. LOL

I saw that you guys on the left coast, especially Oregon and Washington, were getting more than your share of rain. Hope you get a clear weekend.

Have a tremendously, terrific Thursdaylicious day.

Oh yeah, understand fully.
It's not bad enough I'm trying to close out FY13 projects and get FY14 up and workable, the bossman wants me to get back to a report I had to push aside. The sponsor wants the cells in the worksheet to be color coded - matching the budget item to the funding document.

Lord help us! LOL

Thank God I only have two more years of this!!

Wait until he asks you to insert a hot-link to the funding document into the spreadsheet to go along with the color-coding.

I actually had that happen here with extended hours approvals...
