1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    from downtown Boston:

    "Awful scene on the orange line. A woman’s leg got stuck in the gap between the train and the platform. It was twisted and bloody. Skin came off. She’s in agony and weeping. Just as upsetting she begged no one call an ambulance. “It’s $3000,” she wailed. “I can’t afford that.”

    A friend of mine in Virginia pays $68 a month just for prescription insurance.

    When she went to the pharmacist for pills was told the insurance doesn't cover these.

    For many, prescriptions are free in the UK. Count the lucky stars!

    On top of that Boris has promised another £350m a month for the NHS after Brexit.

    It's a Utopia !

    Most UK workers pay 12% of their income for national insurance and then pay a further amount per individual medicine prescribed.
    Only the poorest and over 60s do not pay the pharmacist charge but they will have contributed to their medicine costs historically.
    Prescriptions are therefore not free.

    But I know who's health system I prefer.
