Good point, Mike but I fear your estimates are far too low. Presently, for a G.P. visit, I am charged $320. for an office visit, just to adjust meds and take vitals. Hospital stays are a joke. Looking at the charges $5.00 for a band aid, for example

I have several friends here who drive the Honda converted vans and love them. No problems after three years plus. Getting a used van is a good idea imo if you know who the previous owner was as getting warranties on a new one can be iffy once you

I'm glad some people were able to count that high. It boggled my mind so I didn't even try to figure it out. Good post, Tim. You were spot on with that. We are 'the Government' they talk about when needing more money. Another thing I've noticed

Mike, check and see where one might be close to you, then maybe make a little vacation out of it, stay in a motel nearby and spend all day there. If others are like the one in L.A., or Long Beach, CA, it's well worth the effort and perhaps you will
