Posting A Letter By Snail Mail

It’s been donkey yonkey years since I last posted a letter by snail mail by slotting the letter into a post box by the roadside. With the advent of the email, Whatsapp, courier, fax and office boy service, we hardly need to get down to the post box to post a mail.

Cass misses her koong koong and granny very much. She likes to write them letters and makes them charms from Rainbow Loom bands. She had written them a letter about a month ago and placed the letter in a sealed envelope, along with a Rainbow Loom charm. She had asked me to post the letter for her but I never had the time to do it, until today, which is a public holiday. I have no idea what the contents of the letter are nor what charm she had made for them. I have no frigging idea what is inside the envelope. I just checked the address and dang it, now I remember that I did not even check the value of the stamp on the envelope!

I hope the letter reaches my parents. Cass would be furious if she finds out that I have made this blog posting as she wanted her koong koong and granny to receive the letter by surprise!

How much does it cost to post a letter weighing less than 5g now?  During my snail  mail years (about 2 decades ago), it only cost 30 sen.

Taking Steps to Address Your Digestive Health Issues

As people age, they often experience issues with their digestive systems. Some people suffer more frequently from heartburn; others suffer from frequent irregularity and diarrhea. When it has become difficult for you to eat and digest your meals, you may be advised to seek medical help from area medical providers like a good primary care physician, GI doctors in Houston, or one of the other healthcare providers who can address these issues. You can take steps yourself to research this medical specialty and find a doctor who is qualified to take you as a patient.

Choosing from Among the Specialties Online

Large medical facilities in metro cities often have a host of medical specialists working for them. They have doctors who practise in everything from gynecology to neonatology. However, when you want someone who can find out why you are suffering when you eat or have to use the restroom, you may look for a doctor who practices in gastroenterology. The drop down menu on the website shows you a list of all of the specialties available from the medical facility. You can then use the next drop down menu to get a full list of doctors who practise in that area.

If you know a doctor who practices as the hospital and want to choose him or her as your provider, you can use the drop down menu to search by name. The menu will then provide a list of all of the doctors who have that name. You also will find out on what floor, in what building, and what area of the facility he or she practices. You can also get the phone number if you prefer to call first.

Getting Ready for Your Appointment

Your doctor may want you to have paperwork already filled out and ready to go prior to your first appointment. You can find that paperwork on the medical facility’s website. You can print if off, fill it out, and bring it with you.

You can also set up a patient account where your insurance information, address, contact details, and other pertinent patient facts can be stored. This patient account creation helps the facility care for you better.

Choosing a specialist can be done online using drop down menus and other search options. This search lets you begin the process of having your digestive issues addressed.
