4.176 docent, meeting

Friday 05/26/2023

At 9am I drove down to the museum to lead a group of 20 “members of the UK Armed Forces Advanced Command & Staff Course” according to the schedule. Bunch of 30-something men, mostly, no women, a few maybe older. I got a nice round of applause at the end so I guess I did a good job.

My other activity for the day was to hold an A/V committee meeting at 4. I had set up the two Lecternettes with their new wireless mic setups. I just checked, these aren’t made any more. There are products kinda sorta similar, but not with the extra inputs and stuff. So after we had debated over who would do what upcoming events, I urged the 4 attendees to take some time, poke around and get to know the systems. I had made an info sheet for each with pictures and arrows. When I write that I think of Arlo Guthrie singing about the “8 by 10 glossy photos with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back”.

In the mail tonight? A bill from El Camino hospital for $1500. Huh? I haven’t been there in a year. So I turn it over and find that in fact, this is the residual bill for my TAVR operation of May 2022. It has taken this long for the charges to work through all the layers of insurers. The total for the operation was $360,000. After all the reductions and offsets and payments, the residue for me to pay is $1500. OK, I’m good with that.
