 Guy Lombardo's Tempo VII Hydroplane  ?

Guy Lombardo's multiple-award-winning Tempo VII hydroplane, built in 1955 and powered by an Allison aircraft engine, has been owned by the City of London since 1983 when it was donated to the City by the late Colonel Tom Lawson.

It is currently on display at London's Jet Aircraft Museum along with the Miss Supertest III hydroplane, immediately northwest of the London International Airport. It is open Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm.

Contact London's heritage planner Don Menard ( if you or your organization are interested in displaying the Tempo VII in a public setting for a special short-term event.

LOMBARDO TRIVIA: London-born-and-raised bandleader Guy Lombardo (June 19, 1902- Nov. 5, 1977) never travelled across the bridge named in his honour in London, Ontario, since the bridge never officially opened until Nov. 16, 1978, more than a year after his death.

Guy Lombardo (1902-1977) with his younger sister, Rosemarie Lombardo (1925-2011) in the 1940s. Guy and his brothers in the orchestra actually named their sister Rosemarie, who was born 23 years after Guy.

    That said, I'd like to go off topic once again because today I felt that I'm about to be fleeced big time.

    It all started when I told my daughter I'd help her pay for most of the cost of her two bottom wisdom teeth extractions because she was already trying to dig her way out of debt incurred when she lived on her own, before she moved back home. I figured, how much could it cost anyway? I soon found out.

    The consultation and ex-ray set me back $196.00 for my daughter's half hour assesment at the Victoria Hospital Dental Clinic. Then, to add insult to injury, parking cost me over $5.00 for a one hour visit. But, that was just the beginning.

    I got the shock of my life when they showed me the bill to extract my daughter's two teeth. It was $927.00 for roughly a one hour extraction procedure.

    Talk about highway robbery. Altogether I have to pay this dental surgeon $1,123 for roughly one and a half hour's work altogether.

    When we were leaving, I told my daughter who is single, to look for a dentist to marry. That way, Mom would be off the hook in the future. She said to me, maybe we should look at getting dental insurance instead, Mom. After all, you and Dad aren't getting any younger and you both will need false teeth someday soon, anyway.

    I thanked her for her advice and brooded silently the rest of the way home, trying to figure out how to juggle my income to pay for her dental apointment one month away, because the dental cllinic wanted the money UP FRONT before the operation could take place, of course.

    One thing I know, I won't be playing the hospital's $50.00 a ticket home lottery this year or the next, for that matter, for sure.

    That's reasonable compared to some other places in town.
    Wisdom tooth extraction requires a surigical team including an anethestist,(I think that's how you spell it).

    I don't know if Vic's changed it's policies but a few years back they only perscribed oxy's for pain and gave perscriptions that were certain to result in addiction and/or difficult withdrawl and horrifying nightmares if she has any codine in her system. I, (just a mom from the sandwhich generation), recommend Advil to reduce swelling, ice packs, and frozen blueberries.

    Thanks for the advice Protestant. I appreciate it.

    I think the bigger point I'm trying to make here which I left unsaid above is that prior to my daughters visit to be assessed, she was in horrible pain for days on end with an infection in her wisdom tooth. Nobody at the hospital would do anything to help except to prescribe antibotics, and go see our dentist. In my opinion, a situation like this where a person is in a great deal of pain SHOULD be covered by our healthcare system, because it is a health issue.

    I can understand people normally having to pay for dental work to be done, but when the problem greatly affects someone's health, the system should kick in and at least cover part of the cost.

    I just think we are all being taken to the cleaners by dentists these days because they can basically charge whatever the hell they want, knowing people will pay because they are in a great deal of pain and suffering. But it's just not right. I feel the same way about having to pay for eye examinations too when there is a serious problem present.

    I feel really sorry for poor people out there who can't get the help they need because of government policies that only suit the well to do, with everyone else falling through the cracks.

    What would my daughter have done if she hadn't had us to help her out, I ask? Suffer until her teeth rotted maybe. So much for an 'ounce of prevention' lessening the burden on the health care system down the road.

    Seems very expensive to me. Why not try the dental clinic at UH?

    The City of London does help with dental expenses necessary to elivate pain for all low-income residents.
    Call 661-4500 and ask for discretionary benefits.

    Now that we've already put out amost $200.00 for the initial visit, we feel obligated to see it through. After all, we do have a month to get the money together.

    Plus, I must admit I went to the University Clinic a few years back to remove a bad molar in my bottom jaw. I told the fourth? year student to make sure they pumped plenty of freezing in my mouth so I wouldn't feel too much pain when they took it out.

    I'm sure glad I did. It took this student about a half and hour to finally extract it from my mouth and I had a great deal of pain in my jaw afterwards for good 3 weeks. It's not something I would like my daughter to have to go through if I can help it, because her bottom wisdom teeth are badly compacted.

    Live and learn I say. I just wish family dental insurance was more affordable than it is today. A lot of people would probably agree with me about that, I'm sure. And, it would certainly reduce the cost of health care down the road for many, as well.
