i would like to share with everyone this folk tale

It was the night that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. In a faraway country an old woman named Baboushka sat in her snug little house by her warm fire. The wind was drifting the snow outside and howling down the chimney, but it only made Baboushka's fire burn more brightly.

"How glad I am to be indoors," said Baboushka, holding out her hands to the bright blaze.

Suddenly she heard a loud rap at her door. She opened it and there stood three splendidly dressed old men. Their beards were as white as the snow and so long they almost reached the ground. Their eyes shone kindly in the light of Baboushka's candle, and their arms were full of precious things--boxes of jewels and sweet-smelling oils and ointments.

"We have traveled far, Baboushka," they said, "and we have stopped to tell you of the babe born this night in Bethlehem. He has come to rule the world and teach us to be more loving and true. We are bringing Him gifts. Come with us, Baboushka."

Baboushka looked at the swirling, drifting snow and then inside at her cozy room and the crackling fire. "It is too late for me to go with you, good sirs," she said. "The night is too cold." She shut the door and went inside and the old men journeyed to Bethlehem without her.

But as Baboushka sat rocking by her fire, she began to think about the baby Prince, for she loved babies.

"Tomorrow I will go to find Him," she said, "tomorrow, when it is light, and I will carry Him some toys."

In the morning Baboushka put on her long cloak and took her staff, and she filled her basket with the pretty things a baby would like, gold balls, and wooden toys and strings of silver cobwebs, and she set out to find the baby.

But Baboushka had forgotten to ask the three old men the way to Bethlehem, and they had traveled so far during the night that she could not catch up with them. Up and down the road she hurried, through the woods and fields and towns, telling everyone she met, "I am looking for the baby Prince. Where does He lie? I have some pretty toys for Him."

But no one could tell her the way. "Farther on, Baboushka, farther on," was their only reply. So she traveled on and on for years and years--but she never found the little Prince.

They say that Baboushka is traveling still, looking for Him. And every year, when Christmas Eve comes and all the children are lying fast asleep, Baboushka trudges softly through the snowy fields and towns, wrapped in her long cloak and carrying her basket on her arm. Gently she raps at every door.

"Is He here?" she asks. "Is the baby Prince here?" But the answer is always no, and sorrowfully she starts on her way again. Before she leaves, though, she lays a toy from her basket beside the pillow of each child. "For His sake," she says softly, and then hurries on through the years, forever in search of the baby Prince.

Can free Viagra ease the pain of the recession?
Posted May 14 2009, 04:07 PM by Catherine Holahan
 
Losing a job can be a sickeningly stressful experience. Fortunately, you can keep taking your medicine.

Pfizer, one of the world's largest biopharmaceutical companies, launched a program Thursday providing medications free of charge to unemployed, uninsured Americans for up to a year. The initiative, called the Medicines Assistance for Those who Are In Need (MAINTAIN) program,  enables Americans who have lost their jobs  and health insurance this year to keep taking 70 of Pfizer's most common brand-name medications, including cholesterol-drug Lipitor, arthritis medication Celebrex and impotence treatment Viagra.

"This is about understanding the environment and the economy. We are in unprecedented times and people need help," said Pfizer spokesman Ray Kerins.

Unemployment claims are at a 26-year high. On Thursday, the U.S. Labor Department announced that the number of first-time unemployment claims increased 5% from the prior week to 637,000. More than 6.6 million Americans are currently claiming unemployment.

Until recently, unemployment often came with a difficult decision: continue to receive the same health care coverage through pricey COBRA programs for up to 18 months or go without insurance. This year, the government began subsidizing 65% of COBRA costs in order to ease the health care burden on the unemployed. Still, an estimated 46 million Americans are without health insurance.

"We all know people who have been laid off recently and have lost their health insurance, making it difficult for them to pay for health care," said Dr. Jorge Puente, Pfizer's regional president of worldwide pharmaceuticals in a statement. "We thought there must be some way we could help recently unemployed people who are taking Pfizer medicines to continue treatment during these challenging economic times."

Puente helped conceive of the program during an employee training meeting during which talk drifted to the recession, says Kerins. Employees began sharing stories of friends and relatives who were unemployed and could no longer afford their medicine, and Puente suggested what eventually became the MAINTAIN program.

To be eligible, Pfizer customers must:

Have lost their job since Jan. 1, 2009.
Have been taking a Pfizer medication for at least three months prior to becoming unemployed and enrolling in the program.
Lack prescription drug coverage.
Attest to financial hardship.
Kerins would not disclose how many Pfizer customers the company believes will take advantage of the program or what the cost may be to Pfizer throughout the year.

"We have done our due diligence," said Kerins. "The reality is it's not about that. This is about helping people and we want people to take advantage of this program ... if you need medication, you should not be without it."

The program could, however, have some positive business implications for Pfizer.  Customers are more likely to stay loyal to Pfizer's name-brand drugs if they can continue taking their medications at the company's expense when they can't afford it and not need to take cheaper generic drugs or go without.

To learn more about the MAINTAIN program call 1-866-706-2400 or visit www.PfizerHelpfulAnswers.com.
