I don't know when this happened but it has.

The new Drug Plan

2014 - Income under $26k, Monthly Premium $66.67 + 30% of the drug to a max $30.

2015 - Income under $17.8k, Monthly Premium $16.67 + 30% to a max $5
          Income $17.8-$22.3k, Monthly Premium $33.33 + 30% to a max $10.

Tables here http://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/health/MedicarePrescriptionDrugPlan/NBDrugPlan/Premiums.html

The government is to be congratulated for coming up with something so much better for those at the lower end.

My monthly coverage from April will now cost me $16 plus 7 x $5, so a total of $51.
The first year costs would have been $66 plus 30% of 7 meds costing a total approaching $200 and that was completely unmanageable.

I've managed on samples for some and full price for the others was cheaper than the first year rates introduced by the Conservatives.

The only question now is why has there been nothing in the paper?
Unless it was on one of the days the paper wasn't delivered)

The Pope goes to New York.
Always good to be reminded of that one. :D
Sometimes a joke works repeatedly - especially if one forgets the punchline.

The Pope goes to New York. He is picked up at the airport by a limousine. He looks at the beautiful car and says to the driver, “You know, I hardly ever get to drive. Would you please let me?”

The driver is understandably hesistant and says, “I’m sorry, but I don’t think I’m supposed to do that.”

But the Pope persists, “Please?” The driver finally lets up. “Oh, all right, I can’t really say no to the Pope.”

So the Pope takes the wheel, and boy, is he a speed demon! He hits the gas and goes around 100 mph in a 45 zone. Paddy the policeman notices and pulls him over and asks the Pope to roll down the window. Startled and surprised, Paddy asks the Pope to wait a minute. He goes back to his patrol car and radios the chief.

Paddy: Chief, I have a problem.

Chief: What sort of problem?

Paddy: Well, you see, I pulled over this guy for driving way over the speed limit but it’s someone really important.

Chief: Important like the mayor?

Paddy: No, no, much more important than that.

Chief: Important like the governor?

Paddy: Wayyyyyy more important than that.

Chief: Like the president?

Paddy: More.

Chief: Who’s more important than the president?

Paddy: I don’t know, but he’s got the Pope driving for him!

Scene: New York City, man is going to jump off the building. Up rushes good Irish cop. Cop yells up to the man “Don’t jump! Think of your father”

Man replies “Haven’t got a father; I’m going to jump.”

The copy goes through a list of relatives, mother, brothers, sister, etc. Each time man says “haven’t got one; going to jump.”

Desperate the cop yells up “Don’t jump! Think of the Blessed Virgin”

Man replies “Who is that?”

Cop yells “Jump, Protestant! You’re blocking traffic!”

A Spanish singer chatting on television used the word ‘manana’. When asked what that meant, he said it means “maybe the job will be done to-morrow, maybe the next day, maybe the day after that, next week, next month or next year. Who cares?” An Irishman in the conversation, Shay Brennan, was then asked if there’s an Irish equivalent. “No. In Ireland we don’t have a word to describe that level of urgency”

Some of these posts have been lost again.

I see another closure at the Dumont. How many is that now I wonder.

Lots of luck with the lower tax idea. You better hope your taxes don't increase because you have your own ski slope.
