Joyce and I took a late afternoon drive through ranch country today since it is too icy to do anything with the horses. She is taking a photography class and we spent the afternoon playing with the settings on the digital camera. It was a beautiful day and the sky was full of geese. What fun we had. It is early for geese to be here. Maybe it bodes well for an early spring. Speaking of geese do yo uknow how to identify a Canadian goose. They go HONK Ay. The snow is not so bad but we are tired of the ice. Joyce slipped and fell and broke her wrist three years ago. The flarking medical bills were $14,000. She had good insurance but the copay was still $1500, just about what it should have cost to set the break. Hey, you people in Canada, our radical conservatives are always trying to scare the rest of us with horror stories about the Canadian medical system and how bad it is; how you have to go on a waiting list and wait a year for a surgery etc. What is it really like up there?
My daughter's arena is thawed out. Maybe I will trailer the horses over there if I can figure out how to turn the trailer around when I get back home.
Try the medical system in NZ we wait and wait and wait. My doctor asked my why I want blood tests every three months, my responce was ruther direct. I started work officially at the age of fifteen and have payed huge amounts of tax, a propotion of which is for the health system. I have never been unemployed and worked for myself for the most part. We have folks coming into this country from Africa and need specialist medical equipment. Never paid tax here let alone work, recieve a benefit and jump the medical queue. She has never asked me again. It is my responsibility to maintain good health so don't get in the way because I have paid for it.
I have no problem helping those in need provided they are trying to help themselves.
And while I am on the band wagon we have a welfare system that reqards having children out of marrage as a good little earner. Married man 4 children and a wife recieves far less that a single girl with 4 children. I think the first child may be a mistake. But number 2 to 4 one would have thought a lesson would have been learnt. So number 1, I will help through tax to support that child and educate it. But no extra from 2 through to 4 that may teach the lesson that the younger generation have not learnt and that is the word NO.
