Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

He's back resting at home. Whew.

Why do they never listen when you tell them that your insurance won't cover the overpriced brand name when there is a perfectly good generic? It's all very tiresome but now he's going to have spend some time getting the Rx straightened out.

But, honestly, having universal insurance won't be enough if they're allowed to find ways to try to get around using your insurance. There really needs to be universal price controls but at the moment, it is what it is. We'll go out later and see how long it takes to get it filled properly. Seems to me that this is one of those scams that would never work. If you fill it and then they say, "Oh your insurance refused it, that will be $200," you're just going to send it back or walk away, aren't you? That's what I've always done. Maybe the whole point is to victimize the sickest, oldest, and most confused of the sick...which is honestly pretty sleazy if you ask me.

a minute later

This is too cute. The female cardinal was feeding on the back of the feeder, and a beautiful male Indigo Bunting was sitting right up top. The male cardinal started to approach very cautiously. It surprised me that he would try to sneak up. The bunting is half his size! He never really got there, but the female noticed his uncertainty and left the feeder to join him. One Indigo Bunting wins all the chips. Two cardinals slink off in shame...
