A Little Update

Hellloooo!

Our house is still in process of being renovated. Old 1920's wiring will cause mishaps and so that needs to be addressed now. Good times. Everything is coming along nicely, though I have to say, living on the first floor for a week so far has been interesting. I do not know how folks live ten to a two bedroom apartment. God Bless.

Orion and the Dark - Great book that helps children to see the fun in the darkness instead…

Credit reports with explanations from folks who have had to deplete their savings and having to declare bankruptcy due to medical bills. We also had people begging for a second mortgage on their home to prevent bankruptcy from medical bills.
Yes, we all want top notch medical care, but we should not be put in an enormous black hole for it either.

I feel for folks who lack health insurance. Hell, I feel bad for those who have insurance. Anyone battling long ter…
