The two dykes who rented next door were only there for one year and they were caring and sharing people with dogs. As I cracked to R, they weren't there for long enough for Mother to really get her claws into them. Nevertheless, one of the girls called in during the week and Mother was in the backyard tending her garden and did not hear the doorbell. The lass left a potted up hanging basket full of flowers, a $50 shop voucher and a Christmas card saying, you are still the best neighbour we have ever had.
I paint my mother in a very negative manner and that is how she is with her children and R, but she isn't like that with everyone. Clearly the girls liked her muchly.
If you are not a resident of the US you are probably a little mystified about the US health care system. Possibly even US residents are a little confused by their health care system. Obamacare made some improvements, the major one in my opinion being that health insurance funds can no longer refuse to cover people who are ill or seen as a high risk of becoming ill. The system will undoubtedly be altered by Donald Trumpet, but how?
Take a listen to this very interesting podcast from ABC Radio National. I think it should work for overseas listeners too. You can 'listen now' or right click and download to listen to at your leisure.
The Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare as it is known – was signed into law by President Barack Obama in March, 2010. It aimed to reform the American health insurance industry and to finally provide health coverage for the millions of Americans who had none, but President-elect Donald Trump has promised to repeal and replace Obamacare. So what is Obamacare and just how successful has it been in terms of covering those millions of America that before 2010 had no health cover?
While I am sure Obama regrets what he did not achieve, he was always reassuring, calm, polite, humorous and a brilliant orator. Being a statesman came naturally to him will be missed.
