im still in atlantic city (after a brief thought of taking the plane nonstop to st louis, nonstop to fort lauderdale, or traveling to JFK to get the only nonstop into reno) i sure hate making transfers. last thing i want is for a plane to have 2 chances to crash when landing instead of 1. the only reason i feel the need for sleeper cars is i spent my early 20s in dire poverty on greyhound buses, and id like to feel like not traveling in complete comfort is FOREVER in the past. this is why i wont spend money on other things. i dont want to risk losing everything which would force me to return to this period of my life when im no longer young enough to deal with it.
still need to go to la before may. best method is new orleans via amtrak, either out of wash dc or chicago. or paying $104 nonstop to Fort lauderdale, and then later, another $159 to fly spirit into new orleans nonstop. shreveport and all the other cities there, cost alot more to get to. seems the poker promotions are far better in the lake charles portion on bravo.
well i wish i could look up this stuff online (or theyd at least advertise it) but i found a laundry close to the taj which for $18 took my clothes to wash and dry and ill pick them up tomorrow. i think thats not too bad a deal on price. certainly less expensive than dental care. i was on the phone when i tried to look and it wouldnt show reviews unless i willing to download the yelp app from the google store.
i looked multiple ways online to try to see which states in the USA offer the lowest price dental care (not counting free clinics). no luck whatsoever, all which would come up is articles about going overseas or to mexico or ads for free clinics or dental insurance plans. why cant this info be looked up? i simply thought some states might generally be lower in price. i did find an article on MEDICAL care (not dental) listing iowa city as the lowest priced drs office visits by average.
still holding a roll of $16,800. remember i still havent received my 2nd bovada withdrawal of $451 yet, usually its quicker than this.
one of the dentists just wrote me back with the news the iv sedation will add $800 to any other work done. this was the MD one. seems the only ones who must be paying to have their listing pop up in search engines everywhere blocking out others listings, are the ones far pricier. either that or dentists cost alot more than oral surgeons do. for the oral surgeon ray found me in toledo wouldve only been $650 for everything (the iv sedation plus removing the one tooth--using the dentists xrays shipped over). the one in reno wanted $300 for their anastheologist, $80 for the medicine in the iv, and the other $700 covered the exams, and the cost of removing the 2 teeth). i did read online the average cost of iv sedation in the usa is between $300-800.
so why r all the dentists im contacting online from their ads so much more than the $800 just for the iv? unless theyre higher than oral surgeons. removing 1 tooth sure isnt going to take more time than 2. and even though i might need more than 1 tooth cleaning, it will still only take 1 hour each time on average per visit. so at most lets say 2 hours under the iv shouldnt be over $1000. removing one tooth and cleaning them surely shouldnt be more than another $500.
so why isnt $2000 plenty to cover this? and i would think my readers would be exceptionally pleased id consider spending this much. im too scared of the shot otherwise. or the discomfort.
recovered $150 on the 3 card poker twice in the last few nights. its not quite time for a new blog, but the old one had so many comments i figured its best to start fresh with a new one.
