Re: Tell me about your colonoscopy

I had a colonoscopy last year. The prep is better now than it used to be. It is fasting and then two large cups of a concentrated salt solution separated by several hours. You have to drink equal quantities of water after each large cup but you don't have to do it that quickly. This is what i had. ...

Thank you all for your suggestions. I have been looking and applying to the hospitals and clinics in my area. One was a great job, radiology in-house radiology transcription.

Re: Job searching in your 60s - old dog needs new tricks

Lots of good advice. You might also want to seeking out a temporary or medical placement agency as a way to help you get in various doors. As you also may know, many physicians now hire a medical records person/transcriptionist to work with them while they see their patients (my rheumatologist does...

Re: PSA: Wills and probate

In California, probating a will is expensive. If one has any assets worth talking about, a trust is the way to go. I don't know if there are a lot of states out there where this is the case. Probate is an attorney's bread and butter, so many attorneys won't answer that question clearly. The questio...

Re: Bank statement does not jive with checkbook

In this day and age where identity theft is an issue, I keep track of my accounts. They always say people who hack accounts start off with tiny transactions just to see if anyone notices. I would at least check once a month. Trust banks - I would rethink that.

Also, make sure toenails are kept short. If you can hear clicking on the floor, they are too long.

I need a new phone

Android. Not interested in iPhone. Need one to work in a 4G network. Right now I have a Sony Xperia M but it is a 3G phone and does not work in the T-mobile network. Does not need a lot of bells and whistles but some would be nice. Also, which brands to avoid. TIA.
