That ding-bat movie has gotten more publicity because of the uproar created by the hacking of Sony. If not for this publicity the movie probably would have just "died." Movies of this type usually aren't that good and play to a small audience.

I think we should keep an eye on their activity and request that the news media stop covering the _)(&)(^&^ news and threats coming out of North Korea. Why give publicity seekers exactly what they are looking for.

Now remember I did say the government should keep an eye on them. If by chance the news media comes upon a tidbit rather than blasting it world wide, they should turn the informtion over to the government to handle.

P.S. Regarding hospice care. I believe that they are flexible about the amount of time. Perhaps they don't begin it until it is determined that only six months are left. However, I believe that they will continue care no matter how long it is needed. I know of an individual who was in hospice care for about 9 months, got better and got out of hospice. Then about a year later this individual had a relapse and then was in it for 9 - 11 months before the end came. The hospice care was in the individual's home.

Nursing home vs. home care -- I believe it is a personal choice and it depends on circumstances. Some years back, my husband was seriously ill, and after a lengthy hospital stay, he went to a nursing home. I knew I was physically unable to take care of him. He was not strong enough to walk and he was being fed intravenously. He was in the nursing home for about 6 weeks with daily visits from me and other family. He was finally released on Christmas Eve. What a wonderful present. All the family gathered to celebrate his homecoming. Of course, our situation was not a "life end" type of situation. We knew that as soon as he was strong enough he would come home.

I do not know what we would do in a "life end" situation. I guess we will just cross that bridge when we come to it.

Bernice Winandy 1 month, 2 weeks ago on 108 TQI.... Understanding progressive strategies.

Well, the House Republicans with the help of some Democrats passed a spending bill which averts a government shut down. Good news, except for some provisions that were inserted at the last minute. Do you remember the great bail out of the banks, etc. that happened a few years ago? Do you remember the outcry about the bail outs? Well, a bill had been passed (Dodd-Frank) that was meant to shield taxpyers from future risks from complex financial trades. In other words the little guy would not have to bail out the big guy again after the big guy made risky investments. Well, thanks to a last minute insertion in the spending bill, the protection of the little guy is gone. The taxpayers are again on the hook for a bail out. Also, the spending bill increased the amount of allowed personal contributions to political war chests -- as if enough hasn't and isn't being spent on political campaigns.

I don't know, I see it as a choice -- who do we help out the big guys or the little guys in need of a hand to pull them up?

Tom, I have always been treated well by the CH2M Hill office staff and I have no beefs with them. Also, we were very lucky to have CH2M Hill with us a couple of summers ago when PSWID had that water outage.

I was trying to make the point that because of the current payments to CH2M Hill and loan payments, I think PSWID is already on a very tight budget. I don't know where they can possibly get any extra money to pay higher fees to CH2M Hill.

And, while we fiddle around we still don't have a master plan.

It doesn't matter whether Jodi Arias gets life in prison or the death sentence. The case/matter will go on and on with more and more appeals, costing the innocent taxpayers many $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

Pat, you, unfortunately, are 100% correct. It is regrettable that so few people have an interest in something as vital as their water supply. The PSWID Board members are working their ___ off, trying to make the best of a bad situation. If we can't, or won't, go to the meetings, let's at least pray for them.
