Hah! I like to think that with all the kind and generous things Oprah has done with her mega wealth (that only increases said wealth for her), that even were she the all-knowing, all-powerful Oprah, she would not do such a thing to a non-believer and non-watcher.

She puts her pants on one leg at time just like me. I be she would agree with me too.

Too much rain in Salem prevented Anomoly from departing with enough safe driving time to keep our 4pm meet-up at the restaurant in Grants Pass; and I don't like to drive after dark cuz of my poor night vision

Thanks so much for posting this link...I just finished the download. Unfortunately, I'm still at work when Oprah is on, so I usually only catch the last 15 minutes when I get home.

I'm also a Suze Orman fan, and try to watch her show on Saturday nights if I'm home. I'm positively blown away by some of the things people want to buy in the "Can You Afford It" segment.

You can plug a zip code into the search engine at
Medicare.gov - The Official U.S. Government Site for People with Medicare
and find out what Advantage plans are available in that area. Even if you stick with original Medicare or a company plan, more Advantage plans means more doctors willing to take Medicare. Doctors and hospitals can choose not to accept Medicare patients and payments.

Well in my experience with my mother's Medicare Advantage plan...doctors are NOT willing to take it! Ditto for her home health care agency, which dropped her like the proverbial hot potato when her coverage was switched on her and all her fellow retirees in their plan...and just yesterday I had the truly heartbreaking news that the lovely nursing home we were considering for her will NOT take a Medicare Advantage plan. (For a short-term post-hospital stay, but we planned to segue into permanent placement and a Medicaid application.) Hers is with Aetna but they're all the same in that, somehow, someway, the doctors/vendors do NOT get the same amount of money they would with traditional Medicare. I am determined to get someone to explain this to me -- Aetna just says "if a doctor usually takes Medicare AND ACCEPTS OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS (the killer phrase I'm sure) then there should be no problem."

Right now I would like to find all health insurance executives and go on a homicidal rampage.
