New folder idea - moderators, what do you think?

Hi Moderators,

myself and Dogs_in_a_pile have come up with an idea for a new folder, called something like "community action" similiar to "crash course promoting" where a sticky would describe the rules, ie keep to specific community actions and groups and related themes, such as transition towns, coop farms, permaculture groups etc, what is working, what people are doing, new ideas

medical care preparedness

My wife and I are in the process of deciding where to move when/if we sell our house. Any move just about necessitates that one of us give up our job. We're looking at trade offs.  In one scenario we would have a rent free house to live in but we would lose our employer sponsored health insurance. Although we are both in good health, we are 60 and 56 yrs of age. As we thought about how to cover our health care needs in the immediate, we also wondered where health care will be in a year? 5 years? 10 years? Does anyone have insights to share?
