The text of the announcement that David wanted to share showed up in my inbox! Here it is:

Dear All,
There is some great news for all retirees concerning reinstate  of Dental & Vision benefits next year.... please click in the browser to read the details.
One question to all, if you know the answer, please kindly provide : I need to have 2 crowns cap fixed soon ( it will costs me about $3000 out of pocket) because I have only very basic dental coverage from UAW-GM, if you know Delta Dental pre 2009 coverage or the up and coming coverage, I hope they will at least some coverage on this Crowns service ?  I intend to keep the service on hold to until early next year  hoping the new Dental coverage will cover some of my expense, what do you think ?
Wishing All of my friends and Happy and Solemn Memorial Day Holiday,  and don't forget to Thanks A Vet .
I am very very disturb about the current VA scandals  how could a captive terrorist held in Gitmo received better VA healthcare than Our Proud and Brave Veterans who put their lives on the line to serve this country of OURS : The United States Of America
God Bless You All

Subject: Sue's Link About Healthcare

Hi everyone. It's been a while since Sue posted her link and a while since I've checked in. Well, I can't open her link. Any help? On another note, it's sad to see more passing away of members. How much longer till we're all gone I wonder. It seems like a steamroller of obituaries some times. It is so sad, knowing time is running out.......

I didn't get to know Barbara very well. She was however a sweet and caring person and I know many will miss her. I found her obit here(for anyone interested) http://www.moorefuneralcremation.com/?pagetype=memlist and here: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/oklahoman/obituary.aspx?pid=169668541 I think it is nice for folks to leave some comment in the guestbook. I try to when I do not attend the funeral.

Subject: My Apology

Sorry for delayed and missed postings. Had a computer crash, and Internet connectivity issues.  When it all got up and running again the posting editor didn't work in Internet Explorer, it would not load the commands that would allow me to save a submission to the Bulletin Board. Today I installed an open source browser and it works fine and I will be able to process submissions again. Thank you for your patience.

Subject: Happy New Year

 Dear Sisters and Brothers, First, I am wishing you and yours a Happy New Year 2014 with abundant health with faith and high spirits, also with 3 E's in life : Energy+Enthusiasm+Empathy. Happy New Year to our brave Armed Forces and their families Be safe, be brave and Thanks for your services. As for Sister Sue letter : after reading that article in posted link, the way I understood is the case which a judge decision made was about the June 2007contract between GM and former Delphi sisters and brothers represented by UAW, it is complicated but I am confident our UAW representative will fight and appeal for the court ruling agressively. - With some of Americans could not identify and do not even distinguish that the Affordable Cares Act and Obamacare are THE SAME.... I am concern and worry that 2014 will be a turbulance year to ALL with a lot of uncertainty on our healthcare coverages even we know our UAW will try their best to protect our hard earned benefits just as the ordinary hard working middle class Americans will fight for their rights to have a fair share in buying their own health insurance........ that is how USA stand for .

In Solidarity God Bless America, God Bless Our Armed Forces and God Bless our Union
