          • 10 hours is a very long day. Two ways to look at that, don’t just work your life away, remember to enjoy every moment you have, it can quickly be gone. Another way, you’re blessed you have a job, with so many unemployed.
            I am sure you will find that happy medium.

                  • Medical Travel Insurance, now thats a new one for me, never knew that business existed. I learned something new today.

                    • I see. Wow. I never imagined such a thing was ever necessary, and I’ve worked all over the globe as a chef.

                    • I see your point. I’ve had medical insurance all my adult life, always thought the coverage worked all over the world. I’ve been a Blue Cross Blue Shield policy holder since high school.

                    • As long as you take out a travel policy for where ever you go, you will be fine. You need additional travel coverage for your out of country trips, depending on what you already have and the wording of your BCBS coverage. It can be fiendishly expensive and cripple you, no pun intended, financially should you end up in hospital for ie any major surgery or treatment. I see some horror accounts on a daily basis from all over the world. Rather pay $100+ or whatever for a policy and be sure you need not pay for a medical bill of millions out of pocket.

                    • Now that you say that & I think about it, for those 26 years I traveled all over the planet for work, I was playing Russian Roulette. Blessed I was never sick or in a hospital abroad.

                    • I like you. Thank you for giving me your time, talking with me. The simple things in life are such pleasures.

                    • Thanks for the compliment.
                      I wanted to know and thought of asking you if you can share any of your recipes as a Chef that you adapted for your new lifestyle with me which I may be able to use. I will give credit to you when I test any of your recipes in my kitchen. Please let me know if you’re interested then you can email it to me @ co**********@sh**.ca Thanks in advance for considering it. πŸ™‚

                    • Thats an excellent idea, I will think on which of my diabetic adaptations are the easiest for conversion from regular to diabetic for your readers, then e-mail you the recipe.
                      It may take a day or so, I have doctors appointments tomorrow and it’s very late here so I’m off to bed soon in prep for tomorrow.
