I started taking my laptop to bed with me. Not only does it make a nifty little heater, I can set the background to show a picture of a nice warm beach.

Honest.....there is a beach somewhere in that picture.  :)

Warmer today but did anyone resort to heating in their home recently?

At the Walmart pharmacy, I have seen a notice that says they will automatically substitute a generic drug for the brand name unless the patient says not to.....
When any pharmacy is filling a brand prescription for a client of the NBPDP, something on their computer already shows the province will be billed, so why not automatically (as with Walmart) process the generic one?

It appears that this may actually be happening after all. When one was available, the generic has always been the one given to us under the NBPDP.

Recently, the province cancelled mine saying that while my wife was still covered I could use the new system instead - despite the fact I can't afford it for reasons stated in another thread.

Our doc recently wrote a prescription for the same drug for both of us. The drug was not covered for me as I was cancelled and for others it was not "approved" by the appropriate authority unless one pays for it oneself. Funny how they disapprove or restrict something unless you're wealthy enough to pay isn't it.  >:(

Anyway, it was $80 a month. Too much.

My wife was eventually eligible for "special authority" coverage so we were able to get it for her.

Upon collecting it we noticed the full price was $55 for three months.

Still a NBPDP client, they substituted a generic which is fair enough but availability as a generic wasn't offered to me. Had it been, I would obviously have chosen to pay $55 for three months supply of something instead of not paying $80 for one month.

So used to the pharmacy giving me generic meds, I just assumed that the $80 quoted was the going rate for the prescribed drug. I feel a bit let down by this.

How often does it happen that someone has chosen to go without a prescription because the cheaper alternative wasn't made known?

Did anybody ever get sworn at from a politician? To misquote the late PET "Fuddle Wuddle".

Outside Moncton Hospital entrance, near the smoking area a patient falls from a wheelchair. From the looks of her, she appears to be a cancer patient so perhaps not very wise to go out and smoke.

Especially as nobody from the hospital will enable this by attending.

Of course, everyone likes - needs? - their unwise comforts.

Anyway, a concerned witness goes to the desk inside the building and is told that as it's outside the building, they'll call 911.

An ambulance - possibly from 50 yards away - arrives and the paramedics then help her to the smoking area. In between some others helped her up.

Is this a result of some litigation - wherever it may have occurred - whereby hospital staff helped someone outside, something went wrong and the hospital was subsequently sued?

It's similar to the flypaper idea where flies stick, but it's for aliens.

Last night a truck went up the street. There was what looked like a water cannon on the back with a guy spraying whatever it was down the middle of the street. It's probably too late in the season to be spraying for mosquitoes. I figured maybe the guy was just clearing out the hose, but the same thing was going on on other streets in the neighbourhood, too. Does anybody have any theories on this strange phenomenon? Please don't say they were spraying for ebola, or even worse, spraying ebola into the air.
