Q. I have been married for three years. I’m now getting a divorce. There is no property or custody to fight over, but I would like the wedding ring I gave my wife. It belonged to my grandmother and is very special to me. Do I need to get a lawyer to have her turn over the ring?

Life sometimes hits us with surprise after surprise. This seems especially true the older we become. I go to way too many funerals these days, and seldom a week goes by that I don’t get a call letting me know of the death of a friend or a relative. I said to someone at the funeral home last night, “We really have to quit meeting like this.” My friend laughed as we remembered the last occasion where we visited together.

Greetings, everyone! My name is House. I’m a lovely lady who is 2 years young, and I weigh 10 pounds. I’m affectionate with my human friends and sure do love to be petted. I love to watch the world go by, but I would prefer to do so in my new home. I came in with my sister but she already got adopted, so now I’m just waiting here all alone. I can be an inside/outside cat or strictly inside cat — I don’t mind either way. I’m already spayed and I’ve got all of my vaccinations. If you are interested in me, please contact BAS and ask for No. 27573.

One thing that I have learned and learned well in these seven decades of living is that change always comes and most often when we least expect it, affecting our loved ones or us. We best learn early on to roll with the punches and take life as it comes.

Some things in life are few and far between, and when they come along, we would be wise to take advantage. I fear looking around my own environment that way too many young couples – and older ones alike – simply live too fast. There is little time to actually teach, inspire, motivate and help others.

This is a three-part series that examines SETMA’s work over the last 20 years and how it anticipated the categories of the MACRA and MIPS. While I personally like MACRA and MIPS, there are elements of its design that perpetuate past healthcare reform design flaws. This series examines those flaws and recommends means of resolving them.

Sept. 20, SETMA’s provider training session focused on MACRA, the acronym for the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015, and MIPS, the acronym for the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System.
