4000 WFD (11/22/2016 11:03:36 PM): Just a little survey to see who still does traditional Thanksgiving or who serves other menus? We will do traditional but on a smaller scale this year., Sandy B., MO 4004 blender (11/23/2016 5:40:28 AM): Looking for a good blender DH, some of them are $100. more than I want to pay.

I was excited b/c I thought it was the original, which I missed. Looks like movies are repeated forever, especially on Hallmark Channel, except for when I miss a movie and WANT to see the repeat---then it's only shown one time! Aaargh! Going to have to find an alternative source for the original., Susan, LA 4006 funerals (11/23/2016 6:40:56 AM): I went to myfriend E's funeral yesterday. SHe is Jewish.I hadonly been to one Jewish service before and that was her father's funeral 40 years ago. Even though it was 40 years ago, Iremember a LOT about the service and burial. I know the casket islowered during the burial service. But I thought the putting dirt by the mourners was a just handful by each person.Yesterdya, they had shovels and each person shoveled in at least 2 times. They had the immediate family go first, then a lot of others did too, but not everyone.The cemetery workers finished filling it in.My friend and I did not do so because we were unsure if only family should, if you need to be Jewish to participate in that. I will be honest and admit that was the hardest part of the day. The whole grave was covered by the time we drove away. I wonder if burials differ depending on the rabbi or family wishes. Certainly Catholic services differ depending on parishes and the pastor but certain rules apply too. I wonder if that's the case. The pastor at my parents' church would not allow any eulogies at all.They had in the past but then they had several crude, inappropriate eulogies given so they stopped allowing them. Or I just don't remember correctly E's dad burial. Any info anyone has I would appreciate it., Sue P., CT 4017 Internet Explorer (11/23/2016 8:50:14 AM): About 48 hours ago my Internet Explorer started coming up with a message stating that it had stopped working and was shutting down. I had already used Internet Explorer earlier in the morning and it worked fine then. Since then each time I open Internet Explorer I get the same message.

I have a funny feeling that My Survey,is not going to go back to cash payments.I use this money to help pay for some of my Christmas shopping,and My Survey was a major supplier of cash!! Right now the only CASH ones that I know of are American Consumer Panel,Global Test Market,My Survey,PineCone &Survey Savvy. The others that I do, I can only redeem for gift cards, are E-Poll,,E-Rewards,Harris Poll,I-Say,Mills Advisory Board,You Gov, & Zoom Panel. Those are nice, as I can get either Starbucks g/c (which I give to my cousin) or Amazon g/c,which keeps me supplied with free books ! It sounds like a lot of surveys, but some of them do not come every week.Also, do not want ones that send a lot of spam e-mails once you sign up with them. Thanks for any suggestions., Linda M Rhode Island 4042 scary!! (11/23/2016 4:39:54 PM): My daughter had her car stolen tonight at gunpoint. She is moving into a new place in Omaha-just got the keys today.She was almost done emptying her car and a guy demanded her keys. She said no, resisted, he hit her in the face with the gun and got her keys and took off.There was an accomplice in the car next to hers.She doesn't seem to be hurt badly.She was getting checked out my paramedics right after. Fortunately her apt keys were not attached to the car keys. She also said she doesn't thnk it was a real gun becaus eit didn't seem heavy enough(she had some training with guns for job in the prison.But she doesn't carry one). I'm so scared for her now. She works second shift and comes home at 11pm! She may be physically ok, but I pray she will be ok otherwise too. She feels like this was a better neighborhood than in Lincoln but the creeps don't stay in the bad neighborhoods.I'd appreciate prayers for her., Sue P., CT 4048 A good laugh... (11/23/2016 6:04:51 PM): After a tiring day at work I got on the train-my usual commute-sat down and closed my eyes.
As the train rolled out of the station the guy sitting next to me pulled out his cell phone and began speaking in a really loud voice: "Hi sweetheart. It's Eric. I'm on the train." I could hear him bellow.
"Yes, I know it's the six thirty and not the four thirty but I had a really long meeting."
"No, honey, not with that blonde from the accounts office. It was with the boss."
"No sweetheart, you're the only one in my life." "Yes I'm sure. Cross my heart."
At first I tried asking him to lower his voice but he got really cross with me and said--rather rudely, I might add--"You are free to find another seat."
Fifteen minutes pass and the guy is still talking loudly. It's at this point that I got fed up with his antics and leaned into the phone and said: "Eric, hang up the phone and come back to bed!"
Red faced and absolutely shocked he shut off the phone and didn't say a single word after I did that. I doubt he uses his phone in public any more. , Google Researcher 4070 Happy Thanksgiving (11/24/2016 8:11:21 AM): Happy Thanksgiving to all my RC friends.

Haven't been to that store, much less TV department, in over a year. I was surprised that when Sears announced the last round of store-closings, this store wasn't on the list. Very little traffic and not that many employees either., Susan, LA 4146 I've been scammed (11/26/2016 10:29:51 PM): I signed a contract with a licensed contractor to do a bathroom project. He showed me a listing of the items that were needed and I gave him a $1000 check to purchase materials which he cashed. The project was to start on Nov 14th but he never showed up. I called him leaving messages, texted, emailed and posted a message to his Facebook page but got no response at all. Three days later my emails became failed delivery stating that his account became disabled. His website was closed also. I kept calling his cell but his mailbox was always full. I texted him on Nov 18th and demanded that my money be returned. Three days later he responded with a text saying he had just been released from a hospital and that he would return the $1000 on Nov 23rd. I waited for him all day but he never appeared and I haven’t received one cent back. I texted him that night stating that he said he’d return my money that day but got no response. I can well understand if a project can’t be done due to unexpected hospitalization etc. but this is a business and no customer should be left in the dark. If he was not able to contact me then he should have it arranged for someone else to do so. The text I received on Nov 21st was the only contact I have had with since Nov 5th. He has never called me to explain what has happened or even apologized for what he has done to me. I’ve been patient and was willing to give him the benefit of a doubt but this has gone too far. Right now I don’t know what my next step should be. What would you do if you were in my shoes? , Rose PA 4147 nausea (11/27/2016 3:14:41 AM): the cancer treatment that my husband is taking makes him have nausea.

I pray for everyone's safety!, Carol 4252 Shepherd on the Search (11/29/2016 9:35:34 AM): I just saw this on a show on TV. It's called 'Shepherd on the Search'. It's similar to Elf on the Shelf but is more geared towards the actual Christmas story. Each day is a different thing to learn or do. I like how it's geared towards the real meaning of Christmas and even doing things for others, not just what you get. http://shepherdonthesearch.com/#learn Just thought it may be of interest to someone with young kids or grandkids., Tricia, MD 4253 First Ice Day in 2 years (11/29/2016 9:37:06 AM): We had an unexpected day off from school today. Lots of freezing rain from 5-9am. It is warmed up a bit now and should melt by the end of the day. Last year we never used any "snow" days. Hope this doesn't mean we will have a lot of weather days to make up at the end of the year. Our school district just tacks on the weather days on to the end of the year., Joanne Vt 4257 Bumping I've Been Scammed #44146 (11/29/2016 10:45:38 AM): I went to the police dept yesterday and reported this scam. After receiving all the information the police officer called the contractor and left a message stating that the police department has received a complaint regarding a broken contract and unreturned money. The officer requested the contractor return his call to the police dept as soon as possible. The officer told me to come back Wednesday to see if the contractor responded to the police. If he hasn't it will then be decided as to what the next procedure will be (criminal charges, small claims court etc). I thank all of you who responded to my original post with advice as to what my next step should be. I’ve very happy that I reported this incident to the police and feel that this will help solve my problem. I may feed this info to my local newspaper in order to prevent others from receiving this problem however that has not been decided as of yet. All this contractor needs to do is return my money for a peaceful settlement. , Rose PA 4258 Home (11/29/2016 11:49:28 AM): Well we actually got home from Fla. on Sunday. Traffic was pretty bad and we saw several accidents. Lots of cars in the ditch and even one flipped over right in middle of interstate 95. Hopefully no one was hurt seriously. Sons & girlfriends house was beautiful. His girlfriend is a cooking genius & food was fabulous. Its good to be back home though & settled in my routine. Started tackling age old problem of dust this morning. One room down with about 5 more rooms to tackle. Never ending!, Vicki, Va. 4260 Christmas Shopping (11/29/2016 12:31:55 PM): Is there any others out there that don't do Black Friday or cyber Monday shopping.

Is there a place to buy them in bulk? Thanks for any help., D Marie Central VA 4268 Which to use? (11/29/2016 2:25:58 PM): I am tired of cooking steel cut oats in the same Dutch oven as my vegetable soup, chili, taco soup, etc. (I feel the flavors blend) I just bought an enamel-coated cast iron Dutch Oven. Should I use it for the soups or the oatmeal? Any advice? Thanks! , Lori OH 4269 Market Place Insurance (11/29/2016 2:33:48 PM): I may sound crazy but have to vent I receive a credit towards insurance thru the market place (gov insurance) I honestly would rather have no coverage but heard everyone must have insurance or be fined I can get a policy free which basically covers nothing until a high deductible is reached other policies are availible but are $100 to $400 per month that have low co-pays To me this doesnt make sense if I could afford insurance I would not be applying for assiatnce I hope I make sense ? My state does not offer medicaid or other insurance for those like me who fall thru the cracks Do I have to take the insurance offered ? Can I refuse without paying a penalty ?, Thank You 4280 wrapped first presents (11/29/2016 6:19:59 PM): I just wrapped two presents. The first is for DH since I was tried of figuring out where to put it. Second was for the seven year old little girl that I picked off the Angel tree. She wanted Disney movies so I got Lilo & Stitch which DD liked (I just figured out that it released in 2002!) and Finding Dory. I hope she likes them., Heather, NV 4282 My Poor Neighbor (11/29/2016 7:32:57 PM): My neighbor who her husband wants a divorce after 26 years of marriage and needs to have a rib removed in December has also found out that she will need back surgery probably in January. Please keep her and her daughter in prayer., Vicki, Va. 4284 It RAINED!! (11/29/2016 7:42:18 PM): Finally Rained almost an inch last night and today. First measurable rain in over 120 days. We needed it desperately for our fires on the northern part of our county. Our air has been smoke filled off and on for over two weeks. Not let's hope some of this rain also came thru Gatlinburg. We live 3 hours from Gatlinburg and go almost every other year on vacation there. So much loss of habitat for the animals too. Our fires have sent bears down from the NC mountains., Susan, SC 4285 Ohio state (11/29/2016 7:52:58 PM): ISIS has claimed responsibility for this attack. http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2016/11/29/isis-ohio-state-attack/, Tricia, MD 4293 Christmas Card Exchange (11/29/2016 9:16:04 PM): Would like to join the exchange.

The thimbles will be silos., D Marie Central VA 4296 Trump voters (11/30/2016 4:39:42 AM): I am not mad at you that Clinton lost. I am unconcerned that we have different politics. And I don't think less of you because you vote one way and I vote another. No ... I think less of you because you watched an adult mock a disabled person in front of a crowd and still supported him. I think less of you because you saw a man spouting clear racism and backed him. I think less of you because you listed to him advocate for war crimes, and still thought he should run this country. I think less of you because you watched him equate a woman's worth to her appearance and got on board. It isn't your politics that I find repulsive. It is your personal willingness to support racism, sexism and cruelty. You sided with a bully when it mattered and that is something I will never forget. So, no ... you and I won't be "coming together" to move forward or whatever. Trump disgusts me, but it the fact that he doesn't disgust you that will stick with me long after this election., Gayle, OH 4298 Kitchen counters (11/30/2016 5:43:35 AM): I don't know about you but I get a feeling of accomplishment when my kitchen/dining area is nice and neat, with the dishes done and/or put away. , Mindy W., MD 4304 Black Friday and Cyber Monday (11/30/2016 7:53:55 AM): I wasn't planning to go out on Black Friday or Thanksgiving, but I did. We visited my boyfriend's daughter in Southern Kentucky. Her sister-in-law wanted to go out Thursday since she worked Friday so we went with them. On Friday, his daughter had to go to the jewelry store in the mall to pick up her wedding rings that had been resized so we figured as long as she would be at the mall anyway, we would shop. Best deal I found on Friday was scarf and glove sets for $5 at New York Outlet. At least I think that's what it was called. As far as I know, we don't have one here. I picked up the sets for my mom and the aunts and will maybe add a bracelet or pair of earrings to it. The only real deal I found on Cyber Monday was 60 cans of Play-Doh for $10. at Walmart. I ordered that, but then got an email saying it was out of stock and my order was cancelled and my money refunded. I did get an Under Armour shirt for BF that was about 40% off and free shipping. Even at 40% off, it was still expensive, though. Overall I was disappointed in the Monday sales. On Friday Finding Dory was available for $10. I didn't buy it. On Saturday we drew names. When we draw names, we write a few suggestions of what we'd like on the card. The card BF drew had Finding Dory written on it. And now I can't find it anywhere for $10. Figures. LOL, Amy J, OH 4310 ?

It is similar to sexist/sexism and racist/racism, but refers to discrimination against people with disabilities. Trump's statements and actions against people with disabilities are ableist and promote ableism. Now that we all know the correct word for this belief system - it can be added to the list of Trump's characteristics., Heather in PA 4337 ID with Tamron Hall (11/30/2016 12:24:49 PM): Did anyone watch this Sat? It was about Charles Vosseler. He took his two boys when they were young to visit relatives with the mother's permission 30 years ago and never brought them back. He was seen in Stillwell Ok years ago. But when we learned people had spotted him, he burned their home and vehicle and moved on. I noticed a man at our grocery store parking lot on Monday who looked a little like the man on the show. I got the license number. I have never seen him in town before. I am going to check out the license number. I am probably paranoid about it, but there is a $25,000 reward. It would be easy to hide out down here near the lake. BTW, the mother said her boys wouldn't know they were missing. I am not sure what story the dad told them about their mother., Janice/Ok 4359 Cleaning Sewing Room (11/30/2016 2:00:55 PM): I usually pick one room each week that I work on throughout the week giving a little more attention than rest of rooms. Well I picked sewing room. It is just a mess with all the sewing I had been doing prior to vacation. I needed a break too from sewing. Its starting to look like a room again. Its nice to see things organized & what type of material & supplies I have on hand. It won't stay nice for long though. I also made a list of sewing & mending projects I need to start on & taped up to inside of closet door. I have few things going on this week but hope to get started maybe this Sunday or Monday with projects. , Vicki, Va. 4366 Christmas card exchange (11/30/2016 2:34:34 PM): Hello everyone! I am ready to organize the RMC Christmas Card Exchange. Here is the way I think will work the best. I will leave my e-mail address at the bottom of this posted message. Please send me your snail mail name and address. It would be helpful to send your address to me as it would appear on an envelope. When I get 30 names, I will e-mail you the list. If you want more than 30 names, let me know. The deadline for receiving the addresses will be December 4th - This Sunday. One problem I ran into last year is that some people missed the deadline. I still included them in the list, but not everyone received the late-comers address. , Karen in MN 4367 Christmas card exchange (11/30/2016 2:36:08 PM): Send your snail mail address (even if you have sent this before) to firstname.lastname@example.org , KC in MN 4372 For Heather and Gayle (11/30/2016 3:33:41 PM): I don't think a lot of us voted for Trump. We merely voted against Hilary. As a parent of an active duty deployed soldier, I could not see her as our chief of command as she cared so little for the people of Benghazi. I did not care for many other things about her either. I voted for Trump not so much for him. But firmly believe he will have some strong people behind him to back him up in office. So far I've been pleased with almost all of his picks except the Sec. of Education. I'm glad to see he helped Carrier in Indy to stay in there and not move to Mexico. We have never had a business man in office. I think it will be good. The stock market already likes him. And if you tell me you don't do stocks, then I'd say you either are living in extreme poverty or you aren't thinking clearly. Almost all IRAs, 401ks and other retirement vehicles are tied into the stock market. And it's something that we need to continue to grow since social security will not be around or will not support most of us. Hopefully you will give our new government officials some opportunity to make the transition to office. It's going to happen anyway so sit back and give it a chance., Susan, SC 4373 Trump (11/30/2016 3:41:36 PM): Anyone who ever played bridge knows that the Trump cards are the best ones to have in your hand. Gayle of Ohio displays the characteristic of a sore loser. All of the smearing of Trump came from false implication, except his locker room talk, which did not know was being recorded. How many of us have ever made statements that we would not want to be made public? I suggest that it would apply to everyone. Making fun of a disabled reporter is not what he was doing. You can check Snopes out for that. (p) Trump does not want to allow arab refugees in the country but Hillary does. Does she forget 9/11, the Boston marathon bombings, the Fort Hood shootings, the San Bernardino shootings, the Orlando massacre, and the Ohio State stabbings. The protest groups are all sore losers by burning police cars and smashing store windows. Hillary told one lie after another about her e-mail, Benghasi,her accomplishments, and everything you can think of. The Democratic party didn't think when they re-elected Nancy Pelosi as minority speaker. It is evident that she is a complete airhead. (p) There is Hope for our Country! God Bless America , Bob, PA 4374 To critics of the Obama administration (11/30/2016 3:50:27 PM): Although I don't agree with everything Obama has done I rate him as a very good president. You may recall the little kerfuffle we had around 2008 during the Bush administration when the deregulated banking system based on Reagan's voodoo economic theories very nearly threw the United States and the world into a greater economic chasm than during the Great Depression. Were it not for Obama's handling of that situation by massive government spending mostly on infrastructure projects, we would have crashed hard. That we recovered from that near fatal catastrophe is a credit to the Obama administration and we should all be giving him credit for that. You may also recall the sad state of our health care system, supposedly market based, which Trump vows to bring back, whereby millions had no health insurance at all and health insurers could refuse to pay medical costs based on "pre-existing conditions", a euphemism for pay-for-it-yourself-sucka-because-we-ain't. That is no longer the case thanks to Obama Care. To be sure Obama care isn't perfect, costs are presently going up, but it was a step in the right direction and the system needs tweeking, not abolishment. This was a herculean effort in spite of the obstructionist Republican Party in Congress at that time. The trick is to control costs no matter what system is used. How do you Obama Care critics propse to do that? The market is obviously incapable of dealing effectively with that industry. Ever notice how much hospitals charge for an aspirin? Single payer medicare for all is the best solution for our country but try and get that one passed by the obstructionists who seem to think that the government is our enemy instead of one of the only protectors we have against the despots who control health care. , Gayle, OH 4376 Gayle. OH (11/30/2016 3:57:08 PM): Moving this up. Gayle, you wrote " I knew it would stir things up and I could sit back and laugh". I don't understand why you would deliberately write a post to "stir" things up. It's the holiday season, lighten up! And when obama was elected, people did not go and protest for days and days., Geri, IL 4380 Hilary. (11/30/2016 4:17:44 PM): Seems like a lot of people have been upset by Trump and the locker room talk etc. Well I feel the way Hillary has been known to treat her secret service agents and others in her employment is just as bad if not worse. It is well documented that Hillary cursed terribly and would dress down verbally anyone who dared look her in the eye or talk to her when they passed her in the hall. When Bill had his troubles, Hillary verbally attacked the women and called them terrible names. Her temper is well known. Former secret service say she used the F work regularly. I have never ever in 25 years heard my husband swear, and he doesn't drink and he doesn't run around. He said the stuff Donald was caught saying in the locker room does get said by many men. Is it something to be proud of... of course not! Many guys do trash talk, maybe they mean it maybe they are just trying show off to the other men and make themselves appear more studly. I have been around women who can talk pretty crudely about men when it is just a group of women. I couldn't trust Hillary is my bottom line. She was caught in to many lies. I also think there is way more to her health issues than we have been led to believe. She just has to much baggage and scandals in her past for me to give her my vote. I am not racist or sexist or any of the things people say Trump voters are. Trump was not my first or second choice but he was who we had and Hillary wasn't an option for me. , Doreen,MI 4381 Have you guys (11/30/2016 4:25:29 PM): watched "This is us"?

Last year Walmart had them but when I asked this year she said no, they were a lot cheaper at Walmart thanks.,, Cheryl ny 4387 Melania (11/30/2016 5:39:30 PM): I hear some fashion designers won't work with her. I don't think she cares, but is this the same thing as the bakers who wanted to chose who they do business with and refused service at gay weddings? Why is it ok for them to refuse service to Melania? I don't think she cares, it just seems as if it's a double standard. If people had refused to work with Mes. Obama, there would have been an uproar of racism., Karen-IA 4404 Okay, I have had my fun today. (11/30/2016 7:23:13 PM): It is time to get serious here. Just as Trump can be baited by a tweet, most of the people on this board can be baited by a post. So I hope you have all gotten it out of your systems. Generally, Bob makes the first post of the day and then everyone falls in line to spew all the stuff they have heard from Rush, The Drudge Report or Breitbart. Should anyone dare to voice an opposite opinion, they are pounced upon. This is why I made that post in the first place. I knew the reaction I would get as you are all so predictable. So I am not the only one who is predictable, Sue. I am a confirmed Berniecrat and what I do not understand is what it is has made Trump so attractive to you as a candidate. This, of course is not directed at the anti-Hillary voters who I can understand. She was very definitely a flawed candidate. But are you pleased that he is now backtracking on campaign promises - building a wall, jailing Hillary, repealing Obamacare etc - even before actually taking office? Are you happy that he likely will be nominating another conservative judge for the Supreme Court so that Citizens United will stand and our country will become government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations? Surely you are thrilled that Trump has appointed Stephen Bannon, a white-supremacist with ties to the KKK, as his chief adviser. Oh, and I am sure you also won't mind all the extra taxpayer money that will be spent protecting Trump Tower , never mind the royal boondoggle he will be causing in mid-town Manhattan. Now shall we talk lies? There has been much discussion on this board claiming that some voted against Hillary rather than for Trump primarily because of the lies Hillary is accused of telling. Fair enough. That is a good reason - if it were true. But the lying champion in this campaign, by far, was Donald J. Trump. Americans have elected in our strange undemocratic way, a person with an unusual relationship with the truth. Even when they lie, most politicians care about the truth. That's why they lie and why they try not to get caught. But Donald Trump doesn't appear to see a difference between truth and lies. He lies as a matter of habit about matters large and small. His lies are often obvious: easily disproved by available information. Just one example: Trump claims that he personally saw thousands of Muslims cheering when the World Trade Center came down. It didn't happen. And another example: Trump tweeted that he won won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of voters who voted illegally. This charge is groundless. False. There is no evidence of "illegal voting," no evidence of the mass fraud necessary to give Clinton a significant lead in the popular vote. The website, "Trump Lies" claims that the Donald has lied 1,432 times since June. Similar to Snopes, most of his lies are disproved by Politifact. http://trumplies.com/ There is a darker side to the lie in this case as it raises popular support for stricter voter ID laws which is to say voter suppression. There has been no evidence of fraud in our national elections and it is hurtful to the confidence in our electoral system to suggest there is. This is a political tactic to reduce the number of Democratic votes. This is how the vast right-wing conspiracy works and I fear that this is the beginning of the demise of our democracy as we know it., Gayle, OH 4406 President Trump (11/30/2016 7:35:35 PM): I definitely did not vote for Trump. However, I will respect the office. Hopefully, Trump will respect all Americans. I will give him a chance. There are 3 branches of government and hopefully our checks & balance system will balance out. I'm also grateful that our Vermont Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders along with Congressman Peter Welch take their jobs seriously and will be looking out for us Vermonters and others in the country. If Trump becomes a "dangerous" president, I will become more politically active in 4 years and definitely work for candidates other than Trump or Pence if they are running for office again., Joanne Vt 4408 mocking the reporter (11/30/2016 7:37:25 PM): I found this article explaing that the reported actually does not have spastic movements and in fact has impaired mobility of his hands.

Now it's priority but no choice in the matter.Regular mail was the same price. This is getting out of hand. I have several packages to mail for Christmas. I am going to look into UPS. It used to be the for very large/heavy packages UPS was a better deal. Maybe UPS is better for all packages., Sue P., CT 4458 Computer help!! (12/1/2016 10:07:00 PM): Working on Excel spreadsheet.

The hard drive decided it didn't like it. After two days of dry out time, only a part of the hard drive worked. (P) The new HP arrived on Tuesday of this week with Windows 10 installed. I cringed at the thought of learning a new operating system, but it turned out to be quite simple. The e-mail setup was very confusing, but the Comcast e-mail works, so we're good to go. I still haven't found out what brand of coffee is compatible., Bob, PA 4461 ConAgra Comfort From Home codes (12/2/2016 9:11:17 AM): If you're trying to enter codes for Conagra's Comforts From Home project, be aware theire server is either down for maintenance, or has reached capacity.

MO. 4465 Beth Papini (12/2/2016 10:16:56 AM): That whole story is so frightening and amazing. I was so glad when her DH passed the polygraph. So many times when a wife goes missing it ends with fatal results. So many of those times the not so DH is involved. This whole story about Mrs Papini is so strange. Hopefully in time she will begin to feel like her oldself. I'd be afraid to go out by myself again for a long long time.

For some reason my computer was "acting up" and froze. I was unable to print the label and I was charged in my PayPal account. I rebooted the computer and tried again. The only thing different this time when the label would not print, was that I was able to go back a screen and "void the label". This morning my husband figured out the problem and I printed the postage label. I checked on the PayPal invoice, eBay's invoice and USPS site and could not find a "void label" area. It is only $2.60, but it is annoying that I can not find an easy way to request a refund on a duplicate address. Am I missing it somewhere. (I know it is on the ebay on the right hand side of the Purchase label screen -- but I was unable to get back to that screen last night.) Thanks so much for your help. , Helen in VA 4485 My Thoughtful Hubby (12/3/2016 8:11:49 AM): I watched some football with my hubby but after awhile I had enough and went to do something else.

I just started recently doing a site by name of Instagc. People post that they play the videos that are just, IMO, silly. Play 5 complete vids for a whole penny. But these people post on the chat board they play them all night while they sleep so they figure they are ahead of the game. I think the wear and tear on computer & electric takes anything they "earn." So now Instantgc has made some changes to the videos, well they say the provider has. One of the monitors of the site says you can't mute them & the sponsor will know if you do. Now I would be waking up a lot during night if people are talking all night in my room. But it got me wondering, smarter people than me, tell me, how would anyone know if I had mute button on when I played a video sent to me? , just sounds fake 4497 Omaha Steaks (12/3/2016 11:30:20 AM): They seem to have a lot of specials now. Are their products really good ?, Karen, PA 4500 Rude (12/3/2016 12:42:14 PM): I really thought people would be nice or during the holiday seasons. Apparently the woman I ran into yesterday at the store did not get the memo! She ran into me four times and never said excuse me, sorry, oh my gosh nothing! If you're not blind and you're not deaf why are you running into me! I was standing still two of the times so I could not have run into her. On the fourth time I finally had enough and I I asked her why she keeps running into me. She walked away and never said a word. Now I don't care if you're from another country you still know when you were in the somebody and you're in the wrong! I think there are just some people that think that they deserve to have the right-of-way no matter where they are. , CB OH 4501 kindle unlimited? (12/3/2016 1:17:29 PM): Any one have it and like it.

(12/3/2016 1:27:36 PM): I don't have way to record TV shows, really seldom watch much, so don't even do cable. I'd like now & then to rewatch something, or something I missed & not sure how. For example last night I think the show was called Last Man Standing..Tim Allen is in it. Last night he was to give speech to graduating class of some college & there was so many things he was forbidden from saying for fear of harming the snowflakes. I really want to see that show again it was so good & pretty much spot on to how things are going. How would I find normal channel TV shows after they were on TV? Maybe something from Showtime or HBO now & then but mainly things from ABC, CBS, NBC., behind the times 4509 We Won (12/3/2016 3:51:25 PM): We won the last play off game so next week our local high school team will play in state championship.

And, I just received the material to make a graduation quilt for DD who will have her Master's in Mechanical Engineer degree in May. I saw the 'Gear Quilt' made by Man Sewing on YouTube and am going to make something similar - probably more Steampunk (gears, clock parts, etc)., Heather, NV 4536 Budweizer ceramic night light (12/4/2016 8:15:30 AM): I purchased a ceramic Budweizer night light beer stein at the Goodwill Buy the Pound store yesterday for 62˘ because I thought it looked cool. There's a cut out in the front where you see a man with a Clydesdale horse. I suspect the top is missing. To check that I've spent the last hour searching to see another one, been to a dozen different sites and coming up empty. Anyone know how I can find this to look at online? You'd think with searching that much I'd find something. It has a sticker on the bottom that says "official product from Antheizer (sp?) Bush", Diane ME 4540 DSL Filter (12/4/2016 9:57:49 AM): What does this do when hooked up to a phone?, Not sure what it is. 4541 Prime Rib (12/4/2016 10:10:21 AM): How do u cook a prime rib in the oven?

It was my first thought after you said it happened more than once. "They", meaning thieves, often work in teams. I have a 90 year old friend. She and her daughter were at WalMart. Mom sat in her walker at edge of clothing dept. near checkouts so daughter could find her. She had her wallet and debit card out so daughter could pay. A woman walked up to her and said, "Don't I KNOW you?" She engaged in conversation, trying to convince the woman that they didn't know each other. She realized later that her wallet and debit card were gone! And it IS that time of year when thieves work overtime! , Susan, LA 4548 Job (12/4/2016 2:41:26 PM): Years ago I was hired at my job to work part time on 2nd shift. There is a good chance the job is going to go to day shift. If I were to quit could I collect unemployment because when I was hired I was hired to work part time 2nd shift and the job going to day shift is not what I accepted. The reason for the possible change is because they hired 2 people a few years ago who knew this was a 2nd shift job only and now they are complaining they want to work day shift so the boss is considering changing the job hours. There is no day shift job doing what we do but they plan to make it day shift anyways., Second shifter 4563 Movie (12/4/2016 6:11:15 PM): Thank you so much for posting when Ms.Scrooge was playing starring Cecily Tyson. I really enjoyed watching also my daughter finally moved. She's staying with Son for now,not a good situation,hoping to find a place soon. Hard to find what she can afford and in a safe place. She works very hard,and she needs a brake,please continue to hold her up in prayer. It's hard when I live so far away and am limited on how much I can do financially, and she never asks but I do what I can. Thanks again. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Lord Bless you and yours! , Sandy C Oh 4569 Be careful! (12/4/2016 8:12:20 PM): DH and I went for our annual visit to NYC for a Christmas visit. Almost was a disaster. I was at the train station buying tickets out of a machine while dh parked the car. There are 4 machines lined up ina waiting area which is small. An older couple was waiting there and they haad all their stuff spread out in front of 2 machines. Iwent over to another, let go of my suitcase ad was buying my tickets. It wasn't taking my card so I turned to move to the next one. I go to grab my suitcase...gone, as are the couple and all their stuff. Luckily I ran over to the left to frantically look(I don't know what I was thinking really) and there on the elevator is the couple with their stuff and my suitcase. I shout "That's my suitcase!" and grab it. The old guy says something like "Oh I thought that was ours too".and something like he didn't know what his wife packed. I'm pretty sure I don't believe him except he was taking the elevator down to the tracks.They have 2 separate elevators one to the parking lot and one to the tracks. And no train had arrived yet. So they weren't getting to far unless they were betting I'd run to the parking lot. But the name tag was off the bag(hard to miss it's neon orange) and we hadn't removed it after our other trip. I'm very glad I only put last name and phone number on our nametags. Really not sure what to think as they waited for the train and took the same one to NYC that we did. But really, my dh knows which suitcases we own. Could the old guy be that dim??Oh when I say old they were maybe 70s not very elderly.I'm very suspicious after being on guard in Italy and running into suspicious characters there several times., Sue P., CT 4576 Christmas card exchange (12/5/2016 8:05:37 AM): Hello all, I sent out a list of 40 names to all that contacted me.

I thought about paying for a meal with characters for their family as part of their Christmas gift. Which do you recommend. They have a 3 yr old girl, 10 & 13 yr old boys. The older boy won't be as interested I am sure. They will be staying in the RV park and there may be a breakfast there. Also someone told me there are picture deals. Anyone familiar with and can explain. I haven't had time to check out. Thanks., Bev, IN 4595 Girl's clothing (12/5/2016 7:19:59 PM): Boy, was I in for a surprise today! I'm doing an Angel gift box for a 7 year old girl. I went to buy her some clothes at JCP and Sears. Wow! The styles have changed. The prices were very expensive.

(12/6/2016 7:02:55 AM): Why would anyone take advice from an actor, singer, football player? Why would someone care what Rosie ODonnell thinks? Want financial advice, go to a financial advisor......I have a family member who was foolish enough to NOT vaccinate his children on the advice of an actress!! My friend has a TV, a game system, an IPAD and a phone in the hands of their autistic child, against doctor's recommendations, because an actor told her it was good for their motor skills. Remember growing up with Dr Spock?

With food, I have stopped buying cookies and that sort of snack.I hadn't eighed myself in amonth because I was bummed I gained weight,and had a few lapses in good eating habits. What can I say I was afraid. lol I had a lot more activity this past week due to decorating the house and our weekend in NYC, but I really think it is the lack of temptation of cookies in the house. Some nights I was eating a dish of ice cream, just not half a carton. :) My next goal is not snacking when I come home from work at 1 am 2 nights a week. I always tell myself I won't as I'm driving home.That I will just go right to be, but somehow I am failing that. So I will try harder.

I have noticed a lot of whispering and I asked my supervisor what was going on and she said she couldn't tell me. Today another co-worker who does tell me things called and said we are going to day shift hours. No one said a word to me about the possible change or how it would work for me. I see a lot of problems down the road with this happening and so does the lady who called me. We both agree this hasn't been thought out and she said the boss told her today about the change (there was a meeting yesterday but this lady was not called to the meeting) and said they will handle problems as they come up. What? I can name a lot of problems now that should be figured out before it becomes an issue. I work tomorrow and my friend said the boss will tell me the news tomorrow. I really want to tell her how upset I am that I was never included in any of the discussions and I have been there the longest of anyone other than the boss. How would you feel and what would you say to your boss? Before anyone says either you work those hours or quit, I KNOW that. I was hired for part time 2nd shift, not first shift when I accepted this job. It really is NOT a first shift job and the change in hours will not just affect the employees but others who depend on us for the work we do. , Ready to walk out 4678 Coke Rewards (12/7/2016 2:58:14 PM): While we are not on the subject....lets talk about that coke rewards holiday rewards. Now I know I am not losing it. But I did get the Amazon Gift card (as well as the coke and nike. Yes I was a bit disappointed that some rewards were already sold out But....the coke carton stated one per account. Okay not a issue. But the Amazon had I could get another ecard in 7 days. So I remember that.....cause I could use another one. Well excuse me.....now it clearly sates one per account.

They are supposedly doing research in the Ann Arbor, MI area for Proctor and Gamble and have sent me an "exclusive" invitation to register to participate in this research. Is it legit and do they pay promptly? I don't like to give out home address and phone number to just anyone. I am signed up at the P&G website so that may be how they have my email. Any information is appreciated. , Vera in cool MI 4686 Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama (12/7/2016 6:22:39 PM): BCBS has the insurance market in Alabama. They are the only Obamacare provider so there are no choices other than the level of insurance. BCBS is no longer associated with UAB, the main specialty hospital in Alabama and the only transplant center in Alabama. It has also broken ties with Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta and the University of Minnesota Transplant Center. It appears that they are offering insurance but not for any programs other than a primary care doctor. Is this an issue in your state? My DD and her husband are very distressed on this latest lack of coverage. From what she is learning specialty care will be very limited. But the premium for one person is $600 per month., Anna, AL 4702 curious (12/8/2016 6:00:30 AM): just curious. Perhaps it has been posted. But the contest......the voting there was a photo of a cat with its head stuck in the turkey. what happened.....did ya win ???, Patti/IN 4703 Carole H, KY (12/8/2016 6:03:51 AM): 120 dialects. I never knew that. I knew some of course but not that many.I bet your reserach paper was fascinating., Sue P., CT 4704 A connection (12/8/2016 6:08:13 AM): After searching on the Ancestry.com free trial, my sister has found that one of our ancestors was on the Mayflower. His name is Francis Cooke. The connection starts in 1801 with the birth of Abigail Washburn who later married my great-great grandfather. Interesting stuff..., Bob, PA 4708 I hate some people (12/8/2016 7:21:44 AM): We were dropping off donations at the Humane Society and were talking to their worker who was grooming a tiny poodle. Someone had dropped the dog off because they did not want it anymore. It was 14 years old and the owners had had it all that time. The hair was a mess and the fingernails were 1" long.....some people just suck!, Joanie in the FL Keys 4709 Teacher/staff gifts (12/8/2016 8:19:37 AM): My teachers/staff gifts are done for another year! It is big job, as I do all the staff/teachers that my kids work with (including janitors, secretaries, etc). It's a small school, but still adds up (over 25 this year!). I look for deals through the year and see what I can find. This year I did meditation fountains (on clearance at CVS), Victoria Secret lotion (from the $10 GC we sent for - wish I would have done a few more, but I wasn't sure what I would find to buy, and if it would be hard to use multiples!), and bath bombs that I made. For the janitors, I bought things that were free after rebate at Menards (safety goggles, paint brushes, etc). It's not always easy to get the quantities that I need, but I make it work the best I can! It's a lot of work, and I'm always glad when they're delivered, but I do enjoy showing our appreciation! I also do a little tag with a prayer related to the gift (this year it was a relaxation prayer), and a Christmas carol modified to fit the gift as well!, Lisa, OH 4719 Removing mildew/mold (12/8/2016 10:51:03 AM): My thanks to the link provided by Google Researcher on my mildew/mold question on Off Topic. I don't seem to do all that well googling (maybe it's my age or lack of experience) but I am very grateful for the help. Now that I have read the info/instructions, I am wondering just what the difference is between mildew and mold., Jeanne IL 4723 Happy Sleeper (12/8/2016 11:41:19 AM): My husband says I don't snore too often and I don't talk too much in my sleep. He told me I was one weird woman because I do laugh a lot in my sleep. Guess I'm just happy even when I sleep. , Vicki, Va. 4731 need BoxTops? (12/8/2016 1:55:25 PM): I have a small bag of BoxTops that I will send to someone who posts their mailing address. I usually drop them off when I go to the Quilt Guild meeting, but the teacher's envelope wasn't posted this time. I would love to give them to someone else., Heather, NV 4736 Cough (12/8/2016 3:32:35 PM): What is the best for a cough?

(12/9/2016 6:53:36 AM): My godson lives on the west coast and I have not seen him in a very long time - he and his wife just had their first baby through a surrogate. He is around 50.

Not a problem because I have a junk twitter that I had used with them last year. Yep dug up those twitter password and got another box of coke. Also the Amazon is back. that is the only two rewards I could get to work this morning. , Nancee/IN 4768 Nursing Home Shopping Spree (12/9/2016 8:42:02 AM): Tomorrow will be our 5th Annual Christmas Shopping Spree for our local nursing home. Our church members donate items or money for us to buy things for the residents to "shop" for their family, friends or aides. We place the items on tables along with wrapping paper, ribbons and tags and allow the people to shop for free. We are doing it a week earlier this year and were a little short on donations. Someone suggest that Sunday night's offering be designated to buy the items. Were we surprised when we took up $286 in a crowd of only about 28 people. God is good and the residents will be so happy Saturday. Afterwards all that help with the event go out to eat at a Mexican restaurant and fellowship., janice/Ok 4770 getting serious (12/9/2016 9:32:07 AM): Well I decided to have weight loss surgery (after years of dieting on and off and just getting fatter. Yeah the off isn't good). I'm not a stupid person, I just love junk food, but I'm not getting younger. I know this is a controversial topic. My husband is adamently against it. He needs to lose weight too. I was hoping if I had it, he'd do it too. So I thought about it because I don't really want to have surgery either. If I go on a diet, he's good about going on it too. I decided to go on a diet and if I didn't see significant progress/stick with it by my birthday on 3/31, I would have surgery. I decided no more sugar, low carbs, and no more processed foods. Cold turkey always works for me best when making a change. Basically a low carb/Atkins/keto diet. I gave up drinking soda and only drink water. I even decided I was completely cleaning out my pantry this time. Have been doing that slowly. I can resist temptation, I'm strong willed. My daughter brought herself a half dozen donuts. I ignored them on the counter for three days until she ate them. There's soda in the fridge I told her to drink up. It's now day 9. I've lost 6.4 lbs. I'm good with that. The first few days I had a headache from giving up soda, but it's gone now. I have a long way to go. I don't want to have surgery, I really don't. Hubs is too heavy for our scale, but he said his pants feel a bit looser and so did his watch. Good luck to everyone out there who is working on losing weight like me., Dianne in GA 4784 Janice/Ok & BoxTops (12/9/2016 1:27:25 PM): Sorry, but I mailed the BoxTops to the two names listed before I even saw your name. I will keep your name and address for next time., Heather, NV 4788 just wondering (12/9/2016 2:19:56 PM): My Son purchased a substitute product because they were out of my usual brand. It was half liquid and half granular in each pellet. My Doctor says it is an allergy.I have not used it - I washed my clothes in clear water to get any soap out -then rewashed them using my standard brand. I also did away with caffeine, lemonade,chocolate cookies, but the rash still appears and the Doctor prescribed an ointment . what I am wondering - how long does it take to clear your system?Dorothy H IL&IA, D Heiland 4797 So proud (12/9/2016 6:43:22 PM): My daughter has her pinning ceremony tomorrow. She has passed and earned her RN degree. So proud of her. She has completed this and worked the entire college years. She still has to pass boards test but she will. Next she plans to work on her BSN degree. She currently works as a CNA but will slide right into an RN job at the hospital as all the hospitals around here are desperately needing nurses., Susan, SC
