So is ours RR.

An American film star felt poorly' while over here (our dismal wet weather. I expect) and was seen and treated by our National Health Service immediately, no questions asked, and free of charge.

She couldn't get over it, and has apparently tweeted all over the place about how wonderful we all are!!!! Laughing Laughing Laughing

Sitting waiting for doctor in clinic. 15 minutes of sitting in waiting room and now in examination room. I'm having my sore throat checked so it doesn't turn to strep. Yup, this Canadian socialized medicine sure is aweful.

15 minutes!!

Unbelievable!!

Shouldn't somebody in Washington be impeached for that impeachable offense?

Well, you are. Particularly your beer, but not your ignition systems by Lucas.

An anecdote - if true - represents a fact, at least. Several of them make a statistic.

You presented neither.

Boggsman,
I rarely ever get sick, injuries that's another story, a sore throat for over a week straight is a sign for concern. I don't want to end up like Rick Hanson AKA Muppets creator. I think all my laughing while posting yesterday probably didn't help either.

Not meant to. As you know, its purpose above was to emphasize the importance ... sometimes life vs death ... of physician choice. You will agree 100% when you encounter some of the cardiologists, oncologists, neurologists, ENT surgeons, and orthopedic surgeons I've dealt with, not to mention the VA doc who signed my death warrant. I'm STILL filing complaints against that SOB, in the hope of saving others' lives.
