How the fuck dare you use my photograph from 1976 as an avatar.

Edit: I still have that pony tail in a box somewhere. Damn, so much hair so little gray.

But but but that was from ... 1975 or thereabouts. Faculty ID

"hip" does not begin to describe it. Actually, there isn't really any way to do it justice.. sad, depressing ...those get close.

Black powder?
Around the time you stole that pic of me I was working the sporting goods section section of a Woolco (aka FW Woolworth) store. We sold firearms, ammo and reloading equipment.
The cardboard boxes were burned...you see where this is heading.
The incinerator was never the same but way too far north to be considered Florida.

Kept on smoking that cigar.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Study: Florida hospitals charge more for services than anywhere in the US. Two Dade hospitals in Top-100 most expensive hospitals in the country

A new study by The National Nurses United – Fleecing Patients - highlights the 100 U.S. hospitals with the highest costs in the US. The report concludes that the most expensive facilities are “located in states in the west and south.”

The report lists the State of Florida with 40 hospitals on the Top 100 most expensive hospitals in the country; Texas had the second highest number with 14 hospitals.

The most expensive hospital in the US? Poinciana Medical Center in Kissimmee, Fl.

Poinciana Medica Center is part of HCA Healthcare and data in the report shows that it reported $7,266,981 Net Income in 2018, with a Charge-To-Cost ratio of 1,808 percent.

Two Miami-Dade County hospitals made the Top 100 list. Kendall Regional Medical Center was #31 on the list and Hialeah Hospital was #99 on the list.

According to the data shown in the report. Kendall Regional Medical Center had a charge-to-cost ratio of 1,316 percent with Hialeah Hospital at a 1,137 percent charge-to-cost ratio.

The reports said, “All charge-to-cost data is based on Medicare hospital cost report filings, current as of March 31, 2020.”
