It was beyond a dream start. A wicket with his 1st ball in IPL! Wow. Doesn’t get any better and it was David Warner’s wicket. Impressive.

Then break the record for the BEST BOWLING figures in the IPL — on debut.

And his mother died less than two months ago. Talk about the ups and downs.

Nice unassuming kid. Looks like a great prospect.

His bowling got some stick in the 2nd match and he didn’t take a wicket. But, then he shone with a bat, getting the winning runs in a mammoth runrace. His team seems to adore him. This is all good.

I am pleased. I like him. Something about him. Reminds me of the young, brooding Andy Roberts — who I knew from his days in Hampshire.

The Bill For My Quadricep Tendon Tear Knee Surgery.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and STUDY.

I had my quadriceps tendon repair surgery,
at ‘
Frisbie Memorial Hospital‘ —
performed by Dr. Charles Blitzer
of ‘Seacoast Orthopedics
on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

There was no pain to talk about
— throughout, from surgery to now.

Pretty amazing. All of it. The surgery, the recovery and the bill. Overall I could NOT have been happier.

The surgery itself was near miraculous in that I essentially had no pain afterwards. Was able to stop taking Tylenol and Aleve by Day #8. Never had to take even one narcotic pill. So, that was great.

Wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of the bill.

I am amazed. Gobsmacked. I shouldn’t complain — but, I will, because I am like that. Smile.

So, who do I have for insurance. An Humana Advantage Plan (on top of my Medicare). The Plan is HumanaChoice PPO. I don’t pay a premium. They get my Medicare premium from what I gather.

That they can just write-off $12,166.56 of the bill is MIND BLOWING. If I didn’t have insurance I would be on the hook for this.

This bill is worth studying.

‘Navajo’ To Their Credit (But Also Cost) Moving From Coal To Solar Energy.

by Anura Guruge

This is a painful and initially very-costly strategic decision by the Navajo. They have relied heavily on revenues from coal but it has also taken a toll on their health — and, alas, they are no longer the hearty and healthy folks they once were.

Navajo land is PRIME for solar farms. They have such huge tracts of SUN-BACKED open space, unused with no habitation for miles. So, this is good. I am glad and proud. I want the best for the Navajo. Such wonderful people (in general).

Not sure how they will cope with the transition. They really do need money. Poverty is widespread.
