But Don't Get This Friendly With Nature!

When I was fishing on the Russian River in Alaska, I met a fellow with a rod in one hand and a .45 cal. pistol on his other hip. 

A buddy several years earlier tangled with a big grizzly right there along the river!

So don't do as that fellow did...walking in between a sow and cub grizzly...it's bad for your health and happiness!   And don't do as this fellow did, and try to play with a little cubbie!

Simple Savings Card Cuts Costs On Medication!

Big Savings For Uninsured People!

by Harris Jensen, MD

Editor, Good Day Journal

Discount cards are cutting expenses in a big way for people on expensive medications!

The Key is...you have to know what are the good cards and you may have to hunt for a pharmacy that will accept the discount card.  But some people are saving THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS PER YEAR with the help of these discount cards!  This is great news for thousands of people who find that the best medication for them ends up costing hundreds of dollars per month.

Here is an example of making a discount card REALLY WORK.

A woman recently went to her pharmacy and the bill for her clonazepam medication was $150.  With the Simple Savings Card, presented to the pharmacist, it didn't do anything to the bill.  She went to a different pharmacy and got the medication for about $50, a savings of over $100.

For more on the card and the money it can save you, go to this link

One reader gave these links for help on finding good discount cards:

Another recent problem has been, if you can afford a medication, sometimes the pharmacies have run out of a supply of the medication.  This has become a problem with adderall and ritalin in recent months.

Here's another reader's feedback on that issue:

" I have found as far as adderall and ritalin and dexedrine are concerned--
that pharmacies that are not so popular like K-mart, Target, Good Day
Pharmacy are most likely to have prescribed strengths patients need of these
particular medications."

Again, thanks to all you readers out there for your feedback on what you are doing to make your life better.  These little tips and tricks you send to me, I turn around and write an article about them, and your information goes out to the thousands of people who see my web site every year!  This web site gets about 100,000 page hits per year, thanks to readers like you!  Power to the internet!
