    I doubt it. Ruth Stout's gardening method, which I have adopted, uses heavy mulching with hay or straw, and Rex referred to her yard as "a garbage dump." Rex was the orchidist in the family.

    We are trying to stay at home out in the country until we are in the 80-85 range, before it gets too late to change. Maybe sooner if need be, but I wouldn't think I would want to move at 75, either.

    Yeah, we experienced the restarting deductible, although in our case, it was with Cobra. Maybe that has changed. If you go to Cobra, will your deductible restart? Ours did, but that was 10 years...

    We looked into these plans about 20 years ago when we first got married and we were rejected--I think it was because we were divorced before? So we gave up.
    Maybe they are more lenient now.

    The new people across the road put on a pyrotechnic display last night. I had to tranquillize both dogs, their anxiety was so high.
