Wizard of Oz

Bubba and I finished reading the Wizard of Oz on Tuesday. It was my old copy of the book from when I was a child. I had never actually read it, though, so it was new to both of us. After we finished reading it, we borrowed the movie from a friend and watched it together. After that, Bubba prepared a list of contrasts between the book and the movie. There are so many as the book has tons of other little plots and storylines that the movie leaves out. At one point I feared the book was never going to end as we had already killed the witch and Oz had floated away without Dorothy and we still had three or four chapters to go.

Yesterday I introduced subtraction with borrowing. She caught on very quickly, but it’s easy to see that this is not her favorite activity. Bubba much prefers addition to subtraction and there was a lot of prodding on my part to get her to refocus and finish her work. (does anyone really prefer subtraction, though?)

Also, on Monday, seeing as it was the first day of autumn and all, we took a nature walk through the park and brought home a bag of fall goodies. We set up a nature table in the living room. There isn’t any blank table top space in our house, but there was a lower shelf of a plant stand that sat bare, so we used that. About five minutes after taking this photo, Baby was spinning around and knocked into the stand and scattered everything off of it. So, it doesn’t look like this any more. It looks like a pile of debris shoved on the bottom shelf of a plant stand. But the thought was there.

We also incorporated a homemade “volcano” into our history lesson. We didn’t have a good bottle to use, so we used a glass instead. There was no height acheived from the spew this way, but the kids were sufficiently impressed anyway.

Существует такая услуга – добровольное медицинское обслуживание .
Она предполагает, что вы платите небольшую сумму за то, что ходит на прием весь год БЕСПЛАТНО.
Однако опросы показывают, что лишь 3% жителей Санкт-Петербурга знают о такой услуге.
Почему?
Потому что частным клиникам намного выгодней сдирать с людей деньги за каждое посещение.
А если честный врач попытается посоветовать добровольное медицинское обслуживание клиенту – это сулит ему увольнением.
Эта информация уже вызвала множество скандалов, после того как информацию об этом рассекретил один возмущенный врач.
Его уволили , после того, как он предложил ДМО своему пациенту.
Самое удивительное, что официальные положения по ДМО есть в открытом доступе, просто натыкались на эту информацию единицы.
Как отстоять свои права?
О правилах предоставления такой услуги и обязанностях частных клиник можно узнать, сделав запрос в Яндексе: “добровольное медицинское обслуживание”.
Именно обслуживание, а не страхование.
