Next stop: NCAA Tournament To Watch Wisconsin Play In Jacksonville

Posted on March 21 2010 by Pat Killingsworth | 1,118 views

After reading a post like yesterdays, I shouldn’t have to remind all of you that life is short. So it shouldn’t surprise any of my readers that I believe sometimes you need to be spontaneous—to try or do the unexpected. I do find myself clinging to the familiar in an attempt to control something—anything in an otherwise out-of-control life.

Pattie and I both graduated from the University of Wisconsin. Having just moved to Florida, we both miss the Midwest.  (OK—maybe not the winter weather!)  The UW Badger men’s basketball team won their first round NCAA tournament game Friday. Today (Sunday morning) after attending a wedding in Orlando last night, we find ourselves a short two hour drive from Jacksonville, where UW is playing Cornell in the second round of the tournament. As my wife stated emphatically: “We must go!” “Really?” I replied. “Absolutely” she responded. That was good enough for me… So we are leaving Orlando in twenty minutes. Next stop: Jacksonville!

Hope we can find tickets—hope we win! I will let you know how our adventure plays-out.

Feel good and keep smiling! Pat

    Pat, as a believer that the best changes start from the bottom up. With the out of control heathcare costs, would a place to start be for people to know exactly what treatments costs at different facilities and what their treatment results are? I don't see how we can keep complaining about rising heathcare costs if we are not doing our job as informed consumers. I know of no other area where you don't check the cost/benefits before signing on (well, maybe during the crisis of death at the funeral home).
    I want great care, but I want to be very responsible on the best 'bang' for my buck. I am very old fashion in that I don't believe that since the insurance company is paying the bill you still don't try to be very wise in the spending of health care dollars.

    Hi Jan-
    Yes! Prices and costs should be plainly visable–before and after treatement. One huge issue is why uninsured patients pay more than insured patients for their health care. See my http://www.HelpWithCancer.Org post later today- Pat
