03:42 pm: Warmth
It's 72F today, a new record. I saw batches of motorcycles outside today and lots of people in Old Town. I've got the windows open. While I was out I tried to put air in a tire that's a bit low, but I couldn't move the valve cap. Unless someone fooled with it while I wasn't looking, I'm the last one to turn it, and I couldn't turn it that tight. I tried with pliers when I got home and no luck. I have a doctor's appt about 50 miles away on Monday afternoon, so I guess I'm going to have to try to get up early enough to have the shop take care of it before I go.

I got a giant health bulletin from Kaiser today and everything was either not applicable (how to quit smoking) or stuff I already knew. Then they sent a survey with it and since my handwriting is illegible, I typed up my comments on how this kind of thing was useless to someone like me, not that there weren't people who should get it, and put that in.

health bulletins

It doesn't sound like it was a targetted one, at least. The last few years Anthem keep sending me asthma newsletters. I keep returning the surveys "Was this helpful? Did you learn anything?" saying no, because I don't have asthma, I've never had asthma (I don't plan to, either, thank you) and I no longer even know anyone with asthma. The newsletters keep coming anyway.

Re: health bulletins

I don't think the big one was targeted, but there were two inserts -- Depression and Asthma -- and those were targeted to me. But I already knew what they had and a lot more. (I don't really have asthma, I have small airways disease, but they act a lot alike. They get different treatment, though.)
