This is the first post:

"So here it is - go for it, if you dare!
This is supposedly for the people who got banished from:
OVER 50's & 60's MOVING BACK TO THE UK
to:
US Healthcare discussion moved from Over 50's & 60's thread
but we wanted to talk about other rubbish too.

Saaaaaaave me from this time wasting multi-thread craziness and come here to talk about absolutely anything."

Have at it! Hope I didn't sound like a complete crazy over on 50/60. No apologies, I meant it.

You can really talk about anything here.....Elvis has left the building and there are no cameras or microphones:thumbsup:

It's just like this charity group I go to, one of the women shouted across the room to another during a meeting, "More of my fruit salad has gone than your veggies and dips!!" :rofl:

Sad when one's feeling of self-worth come from the outside.
Living in LA, I think we're experts about egos. Everywhere, egos in clothes struggling for recognition and validation. Still there is a lot of money in it.:D

Apparently so.
I guess we are the poor relations, we can dither over here and talk about things that are rubbish to our hearts contents.
Heres my rubbish for the day. We got only a partial refund from the IRS :eek: They want more "information" from me and are sending me a letter. I haven't even told Dh, he's really quite sick right now, we have no idea whats wrong with him. Me being a nurse unemployed and living in the boonies(a little knowledge is a dangerous thing) thinks that it could be one of a few things.
Thyroid
Mono
Lyme disease.
I'm probably as far off from right as I could be, we see the doc tomorrow.
If he doesn't get better and get working he will loose his job, our sole income and health ins for the family. We have about 6 month of living expenses so long as there are no medical bills. I'm in panic mode. So fingers crossed for me please that Dh has something that can be settled quickly. He's so weak and lethargic, he's getting depressed, he's usually hyperactive always has been, and he's lost 30lb in the last 6month while trying not too.

I'm sorry to hear about your DH. Tomorrow you should know something, so that's good. What kind of nurse are you, RN LVN? Are you unemployed by choice or the boonie thing?

Yes I can't wait for tomorrow he's a horrible patient. :lol: I told the nurse (a friend of mine) the doc can shoot him and put him out of his misery like a sick horse. ;)
I'm LVN not unemployed by choice I was a home visit nurse for about 10 or more years here, the company I worked for closed, went to another, they are so slow they can't take me back on yet! (been home since Dd was a baby and she's 6 :o) But now gas is $4 a gal I can't afford to do all the driving, I used to do about 70 or more miles a day and at 33¢ a mile and only seeing probably 4 or 5 patients in that time It's cut into the wages quite a bit. just in gas. I'd need $25-30 in gas a day for work.
My mom said go and apply at the drug store and work the check out, I may just look into that.

I only dropped into that thread because I saw the house and I'm always interested and looking at houses on Rightmove, I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition.

But then, nobody does.
