    I can let you know how it goes once I have it done. I go this week for my consult and then fly back a week later for them to do it. I will stay a week in case I have any issues. I am having the entire top done with a snap in denture. They will use my top denture. Last year I had the bottoms done but the denture is permanent and does not come out and it costs 33k. Here they charge the same for permanent or snap in and out but there they don't. The snap in will not have the palate that covers the roof fo my mouth which will be great. My teeth were fine until I got a CPAP machine. Within 4 years they were destroyed. I read that this happens to 50% of people that do not have excellent teeth.

    Thanks, Terry, that would be great, if you keep us posted. I have heard that about CPAP machines, too. I'm sorry you have to deal with this. 33k is crazy, but that's t he kind of pricing I have heard.

    I will probably wait a month until I go back to get a better plane ticket price. So if you have not heard from me by May I have forgotten about it and just remind me with a message.

    I too take a dim view of tax reform done by someone who so obviously favors the ultra rich and corporations. One thing's pretty certain though: In a few weeks we'll see a whiney tweet saying "Nobody knew tax reform was so complicated!'' To which we'll all once again respond "Everybody knew; everybody but you!!!"

    You are dead on, Mary. I can so see Trump tweeting this a few weeks from now.......he's getting that predictable at this point. Shudder. Cringe. Rob

    The whole tax policy thing has become kind of predictable. Nobody's released a real plan yet, but all the usual shibboleths are already on display. We hear about corporate welfare and welfare welfare. We hear about the super-ultra-hyper-supersized-rich and their preternaturally gifted attorneys (Why never about their accountants?). We hear about the happy shiny Europeans joyfully feeding at the sweet teat of government. We hear about the poor honest working stiffs getting the annual shaft by those above and below. Soon we'll be instructed that roads are socialism and the AMT as the road to serfdom.

    If the government decides where roads should go, directs the money for it and builds and maintains them, I'd call that socialism. There's no reason they could not all be privately owned and maintained, other than that's not the way we chose to do it.

    That was definitely an oversight on my part. Clearly the crafty accountants come first, then the crafty attorneys. My bad.

    National Review published a wonderful, sputtering-with-indignation piece on this topic a couple of years ago.
