For example, how benefits are calculate, for example, is on the table; whether or not benefits rise based upon wage increases or price increases. There’s a series of parts of the formula that are being considered. And when you couple that, those different cost drivers, affecting those—changing those with personal accounts, the idea is to get what has been promised more likely to be—or closer delivered to what has been promised.

Good morning everyboomie.
What is on everyone's plate this fine morning, besides eggs or pancakes?
Not much on my plate. I'm on a diet.
Yesterday when I got up, Missy had left a few surprises for me, so before I went to my check-up I got to strip my bed, for the second time in three days, and wash the sheets.
She seemed better though as far as her leg was concerned.
My check-up went well. All my numbers looked good. I think they were 36-24-36.
I think that stands for blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol level.
It's too darned bad one of those numbers don't stand for my age. Any of them.
Have a great day everyone.
