Is Medicaid A Good Long Term Care Option?

UNITED STATES—Toni, I have a friend who just received a bill from the state of Texas for his mother's Medicaid nursing home care. No one informed him that Medicaid (the State of Texas) was running a tab of the entire healthcare that Medicaid paid and would take his mother’s house. Now, Medicaid wants to be reimbursed for over $125,000...

Privacy No More

UNITED STATES—I would be lying to you if I didn’t say I’m so concerned with anything I do online nowadays because it seems every single day you hear a new tale about a retailer, credit reporting agency or some social media platform that has had their systems compromised. I mean the recent news about Facebook had so many people...

I mean the thought that this is even a thing has me laughing thru my teeth. For years, and I mean years, Halloween has always been on the...

Time Moves No Matter What

UNITED STATES—There are 24 hours in a day, but for the life of me I am constantly complaining that there is not enough time in a day. I’ve had this conversation several times, where if you actually break-down the day, there is very little time to one’s self. You sleep 7-8 hours, you work 7-10 hours, you commute 1-2...
