ANOTHER IMPORTANT UPDATE to Tuesday's post about health care changes in 2011 in which I stated: “Current [Medicare] Advantage enrollees who wish to join or return to traditional Medicare have 90 days from 1 January to do so.”

As to the the rest of today's post, yesterday, I greatly enjoyed our discussion on aches and pains. As irritating as these afflictions are, it's good to know none of us is alone in them.
