In three days this shopping frenzy and all the rip offs associated with it will be over for another year. The town is like Bedlam at 10 A.M. on Sunday.

I've been over indulging for weeks now... I have never seen so much food in a work place in my life...we have a chef program and they have to practice... ...I am hoping they let us stay home tomorrow...but it isn't likely so there will be more food.

Last week my promotion was approved by the big cheeses in corporate. I was interviewed internally a few months ago, but then there was a head count freeze while we try to return more money at the end of the year to the business. New job starting 01Jan2014, no more on-call, and another double digit raise. Pretty nice Christmas present!

Definitely. Already have big assignments for next year. We've been spending a lot of money running trials at third party organizations. One of my objectives is to develop an in-house model that will save us roughly $150,000-200,000 from our spend.

After 3 1/2 months I finally found that if you live in a house with a defective sewer system for 14 years then you don't see a General Practice Doctor as they know nothing about anything to do with exposure to toxic gasses and all they should do is refer you to an 'occupational hygienist'. The better news will be the results of that assessment.

Sounds like bad news for the ones that are lowest on the totem pole.

Brainwrap: Week 12 Obamacare enrollments - including Medicaid Expansion - now exceeds 5.2 million

Pulling together numbers on Obamacare enrollments is a complicated business because of different sources and different methodologies and different definitions of 'enrollment'. Actual enrollment into an insurance plan doesn't happen until the first premium is paid and given that benefits wouldn't start until January 1st 2014 there is little incentive to pay before December 15th. The enrollment numbers of people who have completed all of the steps, including paying the first premium, won't be available until January and have to come from the insurance companies themselves.

The most consistent, careful and trustworthy compilation of people that have gone through the process and qualified for enrollment appears to be done by a blogger by the name of Brainwrap.

He/she has been posting a weekly update and has links to each states numbers.

It is possible that there is some duplication of numbers but it is certain that many of the numbers haven't been updated during the time when people going through the improved website has undergone significant increase in volume.

His latest numbers:

Private Enrollments 1,389,000

Medicaid Expansion/SCHIP 3,888,000

Total 5,277,000

His spreadsheet with links to his source material here:

Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) Health Insurance Signup Chart





American lives to be saved under ACA/Obamacare.

Right wingers hate it, but it's very good news!

Update: Thanks to generous supporters, Cecil Williams will keep his heroic dog

Yesterday, we shared the story of Cecil Williams, a blind man whose guide dog, Orlando, saved his life after he fell onto New York City subway tracks.
Williams told the Associated Press that Orlando would soon be retiring — and that his insurance wouldn't cover the costs of caring for a retired dog. He'd have to find his dog a loving home.
Compassionate readers rallied together to make sure that Williams and Orlando don't have to be separated.
Guiding Eyes for the Blind, the organization that trained Orlando, set up a fund to help Williams keep his dog. Enough donations poured in to ensure Williams could keep his "best buddy."

According to the Village Voice, "At a press conference yesterday, Williams announced a Guiding Eyes donor had pledged enough money through to cover Orlando's expenses for the rest of his life."
"As of right now," Williams is planning to keep Orlando, said Michelle Brier, spokeswoman for Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
Additionally, a good Samaritan set up an Indiegogo page for the lucky duo. So far, more than $67,000 has been raised. On GoFundMe, another $39,000 has been pledged.
Williams called the outpouring of support a "miracle."
"The spirit of giving, Christmas…exists in New York," a tearful Williams told the Associated Press from his hospital room.

"I'm not a crybaby or nothing. But my eyes are misty and I'm tearing right now because things like this here don't happen for everybody," Williams said. "They should happen. We should care about one another. We should do for one another. But it's not always that way."
Williams hopes the public will also support other disabled individuals in need of guide dogs. Guiding Eyes for the Blind will forward any leftover donations to do just that, as will the GoFundMe campaign.
If Williams finds himself unable to care for both his retired dog and a new guide dog, the family that raised Orlando is willing to welcome the dog back into their home.
