1. Routine Care, Unforgettable Bills
When Sean Recchi, a 42-year-old from Lancaster, Ohio, was told last March that he had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, his wife Stephanie knew she had to get him to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Stephanie’s father had been treated there 10 years earlier, and she and her family credited the doctors and nurses at MD Anderson with extending his life by at least eight years.
Because Stephanie and her husband had recently started their own small technology business, they were unable to buy comprehensive health insurance. For $469 a month, or about 20% of their income, they had been able to get only a policy that covered just $2,000 per day of any hospital costs. “We don’t take that kind of discount insurance,” said the woman at MD Anderson when Stephanie called to make an appointment for Sean.

Environmag Products was selling Sea Minerals. Anybody who didn’t get a full 2 pound package should all them at 314-397-4303. There was an error on a couple of sacks and they want to make it right. Stan Clement says “We did not catch this until today. It is our full intention to send anyone a replacement package if it is short.”
What a blast it was! From plants to posterity, we were shown how to do more for our own health and life. We had thousands of visitors and vendors with Go Green themes. We had baby goats, baby chix and baby quail. For fun we had slides, music and hay dunking. For crops we had organic fertilizers, seeds, and techniques. We had talks on raising goats, building an Aquaponic Greenhouse, and building a still for Ethanol, Biochar composting and burning, getting water from a dead well, and how to save seeds. We learned how to avoid GMO products and how to get involved to take back small farms. Ideas were generated for the next Go Green in October 2012. See ya there.
