My son loses his dental insurance Sept 23rd ,his 26th birthday.We hadn't been to the dentist for almost two years because when I retired they changed my coverage to Delta Dental and gave me a dentist in Palm Desert near Palm Springs,Ca. It was to far to drive from Anza.Now I moved even further away,,so was able to change to a closer dentist.While working ,I had good insurance.It paid for almost everything and only cost 44 a month for the whole family.Now that I have retired,I only have my son and I on the policy.It was a shock yesterday.I need a deep cleaning 420.00(I use to pay 150)a 400 dollar crown.need two.plus several cavities at 180 a pop.(use to be free).I have to wait until I get my tax refund next year. My sons work was the most important.He had 9 cavities,needs a crown plus the deep cleaning.My son only makes several hundred a month transcribing plus working in the vineyard.Even if we split the cost ,it comes to almost a 1000 each.Plus we have a short time frame to get the work done.The deep cleaning and crown are the most important, so his first appt is August 13th.My son will ask for more work to be transcribed plus pick up more hours in the vineyard.My income is fixed,so will have to cut back gas,junk food and bingo.
Was starving,so went out to eat,a No-No due to needing money and don't eat from stress. Appleys has a 2 for 20.Had steak ate 2 oz, baked potato/sour cream,ate most of it .ate all the fresh veggies and a few chips and dip.So even though I was stress eating,I tried to be good.Thanks for letting vent.Now to get back on track.I have a hill to climb.

My younger sister is moving into my old place on my friend's property.I'm moving books once again! Didn't I just move 10,000 to my storage sheds? My sister has about 5,000. They fit in 6 8ft book cases.The mobile is 10/50 ft. She will have to cover her windows in book cases.My sister will have further to drive for her entertainment jobs.There are several schools close by so she could apply for a teaching job in between acting/comedy and convention jobs.She will get to take all her cats ,dog and bird.She wants to paint her new place(art work on inside and outside walls before she leaves for a gig in Utah and the movie she will be in next month.)I wish her all the luck in the world,even though I hate moving.I just spent three months moving me off the "hill".I will help her all I can.

In California,You are sent a jury summons appomx 28 days before you are required to serve.The weekend prior to date,you call in to see if you have to serve on Monday. If you have to go in,it's one day or one trial.You sit in a room of about 160 other people waiting to see if you have to serve.If you don't get called,you are excused untilthe next year.No 15.00 plus 39 cents a mile unless you are there two or more days. If you don't show up,you can be arrested and have to pay a 1500 dollar fine and or jail time.Most people don't want to serve.Its a hassle, with their job,child care beliefs etc....Now me; I would love to serve.I understand the law,retired Calif.peace officer plus I'm healthy,and retired.Because I worked Probation ,I was sent a jury summons every year.Only once did I get as far as a seat on the jury panel.Of course it was a gang-related assault ie my specialty.Of course I was dismissed.Another time I was recognized by the attorney in a case and excused after a crazy woman was dismissed.I figured now I'm retired,I will be put on a case.Today I sat with 160 others,most griping about being there. I had my books(pare in the car) food,coffee,change for the vending machine.At 10:30 they said there were several trials going on. 80 people would be called.Yippee! my name was called!Finally I will be on a jury.then the clerk said,"listen carefully,all 80 called,you are excused for this year."All of the people who thought they had skated were now going to be on a jury.Most of the people who were called became giddy with relief.Me Grumpy!I think once a peace officer always a peace officer. My name must get red flagged every time I show up for jury duty.In my opinion, I would make a good juror.So maybe next year!
