Insulin Tourism

This is sick. Americans travel to Canada to buy insulin at Walmart (an American store) in Canada for a tenth the price it costs at US Walmarts. The US needs some good old fashioned socialism.

I’m pretty lucky I don’t need it. I think Canada is 5 hours away.

I do need it and I can’t imagine it costing 10x as much. Capitalism at its worst.

Benie just tweeted on this exact topic. I didn’t know he had when I first posted but I love it.

Wake up Reg.

It’s 7:30 am here. I just woke up.

Well, Reginald, while you slept your website wouldn’t post my important information. Seems to be working now.

I blame Trump.

That’s acceptable. Expecting delivery of new computer which will probably take some time to set up. Usually we get UPS deliveries late in the day even though they are located about a half mile away. So looking forward and dreading the setup. Backed up onto a ssd with windows 7. New one is windows 10. It will either be a hot rod or an expensive boat anchor.

Track package

2019 Dell Inspiron 23.8" FHD Touchscreen AIO Desktop Computer, 8th Gen Intel Hexa-Core i7-8700T up to 4.0GHz, 32GB DDR4 RAM, 2TB SSD, Bluetooth 4.1, 802.11ac WiFi, USB 3.1, HDMI, Windows 10

Looks great. No way that’ll be a boat anchor. W10 is the best Windows ever.

Up and running.

You’ll love it. I’m typing this on a 6 year old Dell XPS laptop that just refuses to die despite having been to about 30 countries and having the hell beaten out of it. I have dropped it on tile floors in San Salvador and gotten it soaked in the rain in Bogotá. It’s certainly not looking new anymore but the only thing wrong with it is the right-click on the trackpad isn’t working so well. I use a portable mouse so I don’t care.

One day it’ll die and I’ll very likely buy another Dell. Good stuff they make.

Yeah, I’m very happy with this one. Still have some work to do on the setup but it’s beautiful. Even your POMs look beautiful.

I want to change to my mechanical keyboard and still need to restore files from old machine. Screen is much bigger than I am used to but the pics are amazing.
