Glazed ham is out of the oven, resting.

Scalloped potatoes are in the oven, cooking.

Biscuit dough ingredients are ready to go.

House smells really good.

I am drinking a glass of wine, as an apertif.

Yummm! No idea what's going on for dinner here. Had some pretty killer pork stew for lunch, then some baguette rounds with spinach artichoke dip baked in the toaster oven for snack...

In other news of people not getting it, my dad's printer just died and he asked me about options. I recommended one and offered to just order it for him through Amazon, what with him being unemployed due to the casino shutting down. He declined at first, and wanted to go see what Staples had in stock. When I told him he shouldn't be going out unless he absolutely has to, he said he couldn't just stay inside and had to go out to a few other places anyway so "it couldn't really hurt". This is a man over 70, overweight, who spent over a decade working on a smoky casino floor. And I'm quite sure small-town CT doesn't have people wearing masks regularly.

He finally agreed to let me order it for him, but damn. I am really afraid of the butcher's bill on my family alone.

I'm trying to figure out how this concretely rears it's head when I'm in the exam room with a doctor.

Cooling.

We are getting so close.

Next time your doc advises something, ask for their thinking. You might notice something.

"What are your thoughts on this approach, Witch Doctor so and so?"

Like that?

Heathpack 04-12-20 07:40 PM

Glazed ham. I ate a bunch.

ďI hear this stuff can kill you, so why this and not that? Is there something I can read before I decide?Ē

Maybe I'm shortsighted, but I've viewed the long-term possible drug risks as secondary to the real problems of uncontrolled disease.

My decisions almost always boil down to continuing with drug A (which obviously isn't doing enough) or trying drug B (of which I, at the time, know almost nothing).

Heathpack 04-12-20 10:03 PM

I could use a baguette to pair with my leftover ham.

completely agree with you about removing the incentive to over test and over treat.

Bundles are nice because physicians get rewarded for not doing that... the lower the overall cost while maintaining the same level of quality, the more the doc makes. itís really nice in areas like Ortho where the surgeon/physician has a limited time treating the patient.

I donít know that weíre ever going to have price transparency, billing has become way too complicated. Have you seen a hospital charge master lately? The average Joe will never get it.

Super windy here too. It's also trash day. I lashed the trash can to the pole at the end of the driveway.
