I know the 103 is not terrible and I am going to ramp up my exercise and diet changes anyway. Thanks

  • Anybody used America's Best for eye exam and glasses?

    I made an appointment. Their $69.99 deal for exam and two pairs of glasses got me to try them. Sort of strange - they wanted my "birth date" to make the appointment.

    I made an appointment. Their $69.99 deal for exam and two pairs of glasses got me to try them. Sort of strange - they wanted my "birth date" to make the appointment. I protested and we agreed that I only needed to give birth year. With ID theft they should revisit this silly requirement. The assistant manager said it was so if a person was older - they would know to give the person more prep time. WTF ? I think it is for the marketing department. I am trying the $69.99 deal. Their sales model seems to be bait and upsell. Anybody else have experience with Americas Best ?

  • Pro-life vs Trumpcare?

    Does anyone else see a conflict between the Pro-life position in which a child must be carried to fullterm and born... And a proposed healthcare system that might then deny coverage of the same child as it grows ? And pregnancy prevention is also put on "the back burner" by many of the same political planners. A conflict or a policy ?
