Health Insurance

I have spent many hours over the past several days on the phone with my insurance company & also with a doctor's office trying to fix a billing/payment problem.

Thank you Obamacare for creating this insurance nightmare. mad

Could it actually be starting to get a bit warmer on the prairies? I just had my summer tires put on so I can pretty much guarantee another three feet of snow in the next few days... wink

If you count only ocean front coastline, New York comes in 14th. Florida is second and Hawaii is 4th. First place goes to our largest state, Alaska with over 6,600 miles of ocean coastline.

Oh, including lakes, New York still comes in 14th.

Grounded by Lightning

Yes, Grounded from travel due to a severe lightning surge to our motorhome which was plugged in to our garage which was hit.

BTW, the best way to prevent lightning surge or strike is to have a VERY good ground for you electric panel. Our house has 300 feet of ground wire "wire plowed" down the side of the hill we live on, and the house never gets surged anymore. Now, I guess we need to figure out a way to improve the ground for the electric panel in the garage, which is over 50 feet from the house. Kinda like fixing the barn door after the horse is out, but maybe we'll get another horse. :>)


Good morning.

Spring is here!!!

Spring has finally arrived. Now I have to attach my 1350 to my R1100RT cycle.

Suggestions ? I have a RAM mount but have not found a way to attach my 1350 to the RAM mount. I used the RAM on my 750 and 855 successfully but this new cradle does not seem to allow a 'mount'.

If at first you don't succeed....redefine success

Checkin In
