It was 20 years ago today

 

Hurricane Andrew hit Miami. I remember it like it was yesterday. We were ok and my house was left intact. Only lost one tree that provided some shade. Many people I know were not so lucky.

Ryan's REAL Medicare Disaster for Future Seniors

 

paulryansociopath

Ok. So the plan is to get a voucher from the government in stead of Medicare. Then use this voucher (all $6,000 of it, whohoo!) to shop for insurance in the open market. How well would it work for older people?

Westland Lysander at Lakeland, Fla.

One of the nice and interesting planes I like to fly in Flight Simulator (FSX) is the Lysander by FSAddon.



The Lysander (Wikipedia link) had a marvelous career, mainly landing in short fields at night in occupied France during the war.
