    Default Ians corner is an Iowa vacant lot

    I hope he is alright. He had some heart tests done earlier.

    They found out that he has a Heart, and he is at Ripley's believe it or not.

    Not too much vacant land here in Iowa these days. High corn and soybean prices have farmers planting everything they can. Good time for farmers, bad time for wildlife. Ian, if you are reading this I do hope that you are well.

    Maybe he was playing Smokey and the Bandit and rolled his Charger.

    I think that his computer crashed.

    He may have been drinking moonshine and Visited a Website with Pieware and got the Nookie Virus.

    Maybe his dog shot him or got his baton and worked him over.

    Even if the nut is in the hospital, lets get him a lap top. Too feisty to die.

    Some of Ian's last posts.

    Heart scan

    I am going for a heart scan tomorrow at an American hospital.

    Just routine, apparently, but fingers crossed nevertheless.

    I will be going armed with two of my usual.

    The first is when they ask for insurance. I always say public option.

    The second is when they ask why I am there. The reponse will be that my wife doesn't believe I have a heart.

    If I get to go to a pharmacee after, I'll unwrap the presciption and ask for six ounces of medical marijuana.

    This quality stuff is just lost on Americans...

    Just like roundabouts...
    I do have a heart and it is beating.

    But that's all I know. They haven't called with the results yet.

    True to form, I identified another problem in America. Lab technicians afraid to speak! They just say "wait 'til the doctor calls you", yet they must have a hunch.

    It must be another case of this litigious society you live in.

    I am also insured. So no probelms there. But one advantage of being foreign is that if the bills get too big you can always leave.

    America has reach but credit history doesn't cross borders.

    Besides, I refuse to give out my social security.

    Thanks for all the well wishes.
    Funeral processions in America...

    ...are way too long. You have to sit there at the lights while every man and his dog passes with their flashers going.

    Not so in England. Yes, you should give way to the hearse and one, or perhaps two, immediate family vehicles but you have gone way over the top here.

    In England, funeral processions don't enjoy any privileges under the traffic regulations. They're expected to obey all the usual traffic rules. In addition, funeral processions have no special rights of way on roundabouts or at traffic lights. There are no concessions to following vehicles that risk losing contact with the hearse or the car in front and not finding their way to the cemetery or crematorium.

    The exception to the rule is when a cortege comes under police control. This happens if it's a very long procession or if it's moving slowly behind a horsedrawn hearse. In these cases the police have the authority to hold up traffic at lights, junctions or roundabouts.

    I think you need to regulate. From Washington.
    These were all posted in the same week.
    It kind of took a somber tone.

    He doesn't call back Terry? I still miss Snowman, never knew where he went either.

    I miss him also. I don't agree with much of what he said but he could spark a good discussion and certainly meant well.
