I have my neck injections today. Finally got relief from this nagging pain. It's only a chemical injection so it's not long term. Also I'm out of this clinic as they dropped my ins.

This October it is open enrollment time for Medicare. I'll be looking at other insurances to pick out and get better benefits. I asked my doc if he would refill my pain meds for the remainder of this month and he refilled it for a whole month.

Thanks doc. You're the man.

Ins are usually no problem with PCPs and hospitals but for specialty medicine like the Anesthesiologist (pain clinic) there are restrictions and it differs with ins.

I just found that my Win 7 OEM disk is still good. I installed it in my i5 box as a dual boot with the Kubuntu OS. Microsoft accepted it and activated it.

I got a good guess why. I upgraded that W7 to W10 online in the i5 box and used it. Now I no longer use it because I bought a Win 10 disk for my new Ryzen upgraded box.

The Win 7 OEM disk was originated on the i5 configs and apparently still good.

Now I got two legit Windows boxes.

My new hearing aid came in today.

I bought one last year just like this one for $115. Now it's $90 and my old Starkey was cutting out so I took advantage of this price and went broke for the remainder of the month (Sept).

Now I have a matching pair and they are very powerful. Don't let the prices fool you, they work well and come with 4 tone settings.

I got them on Amazon and they come from Indonesia. The brand is Siemens.

I got a pair of hearing aids 3 years ago, bought the low end - only $2000! They were trying to sell me a pair that cost $8000.

I'm not sure if mine were worth what I paid for them hope yours work well for you.

I have a new medical plan which provides hearing aids for no additional cost. I'm tempted to go in and get a pair of those to see how well they work compared to the ones I bought.

They have. Lots of hearing aids places don't accept Medicare anymore so fuck em. They're over priced junks anyway.

I just buy my own and they work great.

I am wondering if anyone has a issue with there Blue ray player. I bought two new Sony BDP-S1700 Blue Ray players that also can play usb and can go on-line so i can view You Tube, Netflix ect. From the get go i have had issues with keeping them turned on except when playing a movie. Sometimes i have to hit the power button 4,5 or more times to get it to stay powered up. Both units do this. It will sometimes wait till i am doing the google sign and then it just turns itself off and then back on again. Then its repeating this all over again. I can't believe i got two lemons! Any ideas other than taking a hammer to them??

Since they both do that I don't think they're defective. It's probably the plug n play thing or some settings.

I saw this review:



Looks like you can play games on it.

My car is currently in the shop. A little dog ran out in front of me while I was cruising along at about 45 mph. I thought for sure the dog was dead but looked around for it only to see it running full speed down the sidewalk as if nothing had happened.

I thought it would cost maybe a couple hundred to fix so took it to the shop. The estimate was $1700 but once they got it apart they found additional damage so it's gonna end up costing around $2500. Insurance will cover all but $500, my deductible. It's already been in the shop 3 days so far and they are saying it won't be ready until next week.

Stupid little dog.
