Quick Hi

October 31st, 2014 at 03:09 pm

Just a quick hi to all of you. I'm super busy but hope to blog this weekend. But in more pressing financial news, I'd better go register for my flex spending for next year!

The Benefits of Benefits

October 10th, 2014 at 03:14 am

Our university had its Benefits Fair yesterday. I'm not sure what's up with that title; there's never a dunk tank or a corn dog or a merry-go-round, just a series of tables staffed by unlucky vendors.

It always makes me laugh because although we employ people of all ages from 18-80 or so, everyone at the BF is over 40. Always. And virtually everyone was talking about and seeking out dental insurance. My 50- percent coverage is as good as it gets; I'll just have to put more in flex if I suspect another year like this one. I always pick up the freebies, but they're not like they used to be. I did pick up some dental floss, a stress ball, half a dozen pens, a calendar, a pencil sharpener, and some other odds and ends.

The best news was that my very good health insurance is now offering an annual $150 gift card for taking their health screening every year. We're in!

In other assorted news, I've finished one of my free lance accuracy checking jobs. I await payment.
