Wow, Happy Thanksgiving!
I cannot believe how things seem like they are changing. I guess its the time of my life, you start to lose those closest to you. I lost my father when I was 31, didnt think much about it then, but I was young to lose a parent. I didn't lose my mother until 20 years later. I cant believe that I miss her as much as I do, but I guess she was a bigger part of my life than I thought.
Back in september I lost my cousin. I just saw him last year, he looked good, but now is gone. My sister and I went back to see the family, they look great and doing well. They were happy...

Well, 3 days later they were talking of discharge from the hospital, then...
Long Time No see
Been a while since I have written. Its wierd how things come to mind sometimes. My company just hired its 2nd employee, with me that makes 3. I wanted to retire early, but found that I really couldnt as health insurance would be near impossible to get in most states, and even in places like NY, where you have guaranteed coverage, it would be super expensive. So I started a company, got customers and am working. In this country you have to work until 65 in order to get individual insurance if you have a pre-existing condition. I could not believe the costs, for me alone, with an exclusion of...
