For me it’s ‘You’re Gorgeous’ by Babybird. I can still remember it playing on the Leisure Centre radio as I was doing backstroke down the pool. It was a Saturday morning sometime in the 90s, my dad would always take us swimming on the weekend.
Edit: I have been getting increasingly interested in how music can help people suffering with Dementia, which led me to ask this question. Here is an article.

We grew up with gamestop now lets help fuel their second chance at life.
Not financial advice (obviously i lost everything and live with my parents in my little brothera room)
i loved having a one-stop-shop for all the big performances from the night prior. now the front page is flooded with single game stat lines.
People act like people just didn't care back then about dps.
Not really true. People cared. But people also understood that Blizzard was balancing, changing the game. A weak class one patch could get improved alot with one of the talent works, or bugfixes, or general tuning.
With classic there are no patches, no class tuning, no balancing. This makes everything easily solvable, and there is no more holding out for a patch to fix your class like there used to be.
Everyone know what's good and what will suck for the entire expansion. Big change, and will stop the game from ever feeling like it did back then.
It seems the ACA is a large reason for the progressive corporatization of healthcare, which prevented physicians from “owning” hospitals. Now, we have an ever increasing number of clinics run by private equity and hospital systems traded on the stock market. From what I’ve seen, profits take precedent over what may be best for patients, toeing the line of what is standard of care. These healthcare systems seem to hire inadequate staffing from either a staff:patient ratio or education standpoint and have opened up a huge amount of residency programs that make me concerned for the quality of education provided to the trainees. Do we have any evidence that these for profit systems have better or worse health outcomes?
The cost of care has risen like wildfire as the health systems try to squeeze more money out of patients. Almost half of all dollars spent on healthcare go towards administrative costs. Insurance companies make more by taking premiums and then denying care to patients.
If this has led to a more efficient and healthier system, great. But it feels like patients are losing out. If it isn’t making for better care and healthier patients, how can we change this? It seems like healthcare personnel managing the hospitals was a better system to provide good quality care for a reasonable price. The health systems with more healthcare worker involvement in the administrative process have anecdotally had better reputations for care and offered large amounts of charity care.
The ACA, for all the good it did, may have just led to care being less affordable. How can we push back from a legislative stand point to change how these health systems are run so that patients are benefited instead of insurance CEOs and investors? Or is the cat out of the bag and the hospital association lobbyists and Wall Street lobbyists will prevent any change to improve outcomes and care for our patients?
Edit: I am not saying repeal the ACA. I am happy to hear about Medicare loss ratio and more insurance dollars are used to treat patients. I found evidence that the healthcare cost rise has been much lower since the ACA. Plus more people are insured. I agree with u/tunafingerz that advocacy at a local level is a great start. It seems the rise of high deductible health plans have also lead to more out of pocket costs for patients, which makes it appear that the costs have risen significantly.
Thanks for all the replies everyone! I hope to see healthcare serve patients better a... keep reading on reddit ➡
So this story takes place a few months later from the first story, everyone has had a birthday except me. During that time we have been back a few times but not much to make a story about, I might do a bunch of smaller stories in one post. It is now winter and where we live it gets a very thick layer of snow about every year.
It was winter break and the four of us decided that we should go shovel driveways. Rob would get his four-wheeler and the rest of us would shovel out the parts he couldn't get to. We made quite a bit of money around our neighborhood and there was still a lot of time left before it got too dark. Rob decided that we should go over to the neighborhood next to us to see if we can make a little bit more money. Jack hopped on Rob's four-wheeler and took the roads to get there, while Harry and I had to walk through the woods. As they left we started bitching about having to walk for a while. We were on the main trail that goes to the other neighborhood when Harry sees a guy standing in the middle of the trail. He just stood there looking down at the stream. This guy looked very tall, he had long light brown hair, a black coat that looked very muddy but he looked clean himself. We had no idea what to do. We have never seen an adult back here before so we kind of just stood there waiting. Minutes go by and we start asking each other questions like "what is he doing here?" and "do you think he needs help?” We didn't want to keep our friends waiting so we walked down one of the skinny paths to the deeper part of the woods. (During the time between stories we discovered a small path that connects the larger path in the deep part to a small strip that go back to the main trail. As we walked I tried to keep an eye on the guy. He still didn't move the whole time.
We are almost at the tiny strip when Harry notices some strange prints in the snow. It looked like there was a struggle, there was large markings in the snow followed by some foot prints and dog prints. Then a dragging mark that led up to the giant rock that started and ended there. We both looked at each other and decided that it would be best to not go check it out. We made it to the other side where Jack and Rob were waiting and yelled at us for taking so long. We told them everything we saw and Rob immediately wanted to go check it out. Harry and I complained that we didn't wa... keep reading on reddit ➡
