2205 junk food (10/11/2016 9:45:48 PM):  Well, I went shopping this morning with a list and bought mostly good food, but one junk food item made it into the cart. I cooked the item and ate all of it today so I didn't have to share it with DH tonight. Definitely not proud of myself and my stomach is not happy with me. I can't remember the last time I did that, but I need to not do that again.,  no name.....

2206 Yearly subscription give away (10/11/2016 10:34:54 PM):  For the past couple of years around this time I've done a "nominate someone who deserves a subscription" contest. So many nice people have responded to it that I'm doing it again. This year, though, you HAVE TO include user name and city, state to be included in the give away. Michelle has so many subscribers, without that info it's almost impossible to know who to credit the subscription to. Send me an email at to nominate someone deserving of a free subscription ~ whether it's for yourself because you love RC, or whether it's for someone who post lots of helpful hints and tips, or for someone who post happy post to bring a smile to your face. Nominate away.,  Sandy B., MO

2213 so sad but proud (10/12/2016 6:58:51 AM):  I don't know how someone can be filled with pride but their heart breaking at the same time. In just a few hours I'll be at the airport seeing my son leave for his deployment to Japan for 2 years. It's doubtful that I will see him during that time. He is active duty Marine. But I remind myself that he is going to a safe place with an opportunity of a lifetime to see the world. He heads to Chicago and then on to Seattle and then on military plane on to Okinawa. A part of my heart will go with him.,  Susan, SC

2226 Mike Tiger VI (10/12/2016 10:47:53 AM):  Thanks again to Judy B LA for posting about LSU's Mike Tiger VI being humanely euthanized. I logged onto the LSU Website today to read the latest posting about Mike. There will be no formal memorial service at LSU fopr Mike. Instead, fans of Mike are encouraged to share memories, stories & photos of Mike on various social media using "#MikeVI". They have already started a search for Mike's replacement as mascot. They are looking for a young male tiger. And would prefer one donated by a tiger rescue organization.,  Virginia Ann S VA

2231 Google researcher (10/12/2016 11:38:14 AM):  A few days ago I posted about my adult daughter not being able to get health insurance and she was saying she could get on Medicaid. You posted a site link which I sent to my daughter. She filled it out and she said they are calling her every few hours now and the first call was before 8 a.m. She is out of town but this is what she said about that company: I'm actually pretty p---ed at them too because I had to enter my contact info to get insurance quotes or even see the companies they work with, and they won't stop calling me! Their first call was at 7:55 A.M. They've been calling me and leaving voice messages pretty much every two hours since. If you look up the "healthcare insurance" companies that website you sent me is partnered with they directly say they don't even do healthcare. Some outright say "we don't offer health insurance" but are rather companies that make sure actual health insurance companies make large profits. Most of the others only offer life insurance, which is probably why no doctor or hospital in the area use them. " I can tell she will give me an earful when she gets home about this. Thank you for trying to help! ,  Needs insurance

2232 Okla/Ark Freedom Flight (10/12/2016 12:30:05 PM):  I am applying for the Freedom Flight to Washington for my Veteran Husband for the Spring. It is mostly for WWII and Terminal Vets; but anyone can apply. My dh has many diabilities from Viet Nam War. My dd can apply as a Guardian. If selected it will cost him nothing and her $500.00 for flight, food, and lodging. They will leave from Tulsa, Ok to Washington; tour the Monuments; cemetery and I assume the Viet Nam wall and return that evening. I hope they are accepted. It would mean a lot since the VN vets weren't welcomed home until now.,  janice/Ok

2233 Deseased Belongings (10/12/2016 12:36:56 PM):  My mil's second husband sold most of her belongings that were worth anything while she was alive; travel trailer, van; pick-up; house; furniture, etc. He bought him a new barn, new pick up, new riding lawn mower, new tractor, a new car for them; added a new closet to their home for her. When she passed away, he gave us her clothes; some of her costume jewelry; underwear and bras. My younger daughter wanted her kitchen stool where she sat and watched grandma cook. It meant a lot to her. He said when he got his old one out of storage and got it pained; she could have it. Our grandsons even have their pics taken sitting on it in her kitchen. He has promised her big jewelry box and big sewing machine but we haven't gotten back over there yet. He has had many things stolen from his garage so Karma hasn't been good to him.,  Janice/Ok

2236 Would you... (10/12/2016 2:37:37 PM):  I have been trying to get estimates to trim some trees. I have managed to get 2 companies to come out with estimates and had an appt. today for another one to come out. He was a no call no show. A few others I have called have voice mail so I leave a message and then when they call back they reach my answering machine but one said leave me your address and time you want me out and I will come. He was also a no call no show. I am fed up with this and would like to call them back and say thanks for wasting my time. I stayed home waiting on you to come but you did not come or call. Or would you just forget it? I changed my plans to be home both times when I could have been doing something else. If anyone asks me to recommend tree trimmers you can bet I will tell them who NOT to call. ,  Ann

2248 Sandusky Ohio (10/12/2016 4:33:42 PM):  I'm looking for anyone who lives or goes there. There is a place on Milan road (I think)near the mall that does psychic readings. Has anyone actually been there? Could you tell me how much it costs? Or maybe someplace else close to that or someone near Tiffin Ohio?,  cathy oh

2252 New Scam (10/12/2016 5:26:57 PM):  I got a robo=call today from an outfit that has pain relief cream that is better than anything on the market. No name of the medicine was mentioned but BCBS will allow you to get it absolutely free of charge. I looked this up on the internet and if you press 1, they want your Medicare card number and your SS number. There is also a monthly fee. BCBS has nothing to do with this and once they get your SS number, you can kiss your money goodbye.,  Bob, PA

I'm like ok I will play along. He starts asking me questions Do I need more business I say no I'm to busy well he says how do you handle all your business I say I have 3 assistants.

2283 Dimentia (10/13/2016 7:00:41 AM):  My husband is in beginning stages. He forgets lots of things. We have conversations that lead to me telling him, "we talked about that, you forgot". Then he, understandably gets defensive with "no you didn't." Before I know it, we are in kind of a fight. He accuses me of not telling him things and lying about it to make him look bad. Does anyone have suggestions on different words I can use? I understand how he must feel backed in a corner, but I don't know how else to handle these things. They happen almost daily. I. Feel bad, but I almost he would progress a little further where he doesn't care about these little things. They are always little things.,  No Name

2287 THoughts (10/13/2016 8:17:55 AM):  Debbie, Your family and you are in my prayers and will keep a positive thought over the next few days.

2309 Dimentia (10/13/2016 10:11:40 AM):  I have a family member that had a series of strokes over 30 years ago. He is in excellent health, but his short term memory is 0. But his wife does this: She has given him a pocket notebook ( he has gone through lots and lots of these over the years) She asks him to write everything down. He does, thankfully, and refers to his notes continually. I hope this helps your situation.,  Marge, MO

2310 Ann (10/13/2016 10:27:05 AM):  Try to get an estimate from a company who has an ISA, (International Society of Arboriculture) certified arborist. Three estimates are good to obtain. Like any other contractor the quality of the work has to do with the owner's personality and how he/she trains their employees. Not showing up without contacting you and explaining why is not good. Contact the better business bureau to look for unresolved differences. Make sure they have insurance and can send you a certificate of insurance. Better yet, talk to a friend and see who they recommend. It is quite a process. Because of the rainy weather,emergencies etc... tree services are backed up to early spring. Good luck to you.

I wrote here on OTCC and within 24 hours got over 100 emails about my spinal stenosis.....there are so many trolls on the internet.....just ignore and more on,  Joanie in FL Keys

2332 Faye, VA (10/13/2016 3:50:43 PM):  Don't have memory problems yet, except for occasional name of a person I seldom see & don't take Tumeric. I have heard good things about it. A girl at work buys it on line somewhere she says Amish raised so she trusts it more. Anyway how large a dose are these people having to take? Another girl at work tried it and said it hurt her stomach so she quit taking it. She has arthritis in knees & thought it would help them. Does it ever bother your stomach? Not sure if she was taking it after eating or not. I hoped it would help her because she gets Cortizone (sp) shots instead. ,  just me

2340 bug bites-dorothy h (10/14/2016 6:29:30 AM):  The best thing is Worchestershire sauce. I stepped in red ants one day and didn't have any of the usual remedies on-hand so I Googled it and ran across that. I was skeptical but it was all I had so I tried. It worked! Stops the itching, but doesn't stop the pus or anything else. It works really well when cold from the fridge. I tried the Great Value from WalMart but it didn't work as well as Lea and Perrins, guess cuz L & P is thicker and clings better. You do smell a little strange though. I put it on for a few minutes and then rinse off.,  Susan, LA

2341 Smoothie (10/14/2016 7:39:58 AM):  Can some of you post your recipes for your favorites? I need ideas for a few tasty ones.

2342 dementia (10/14/2016 8:02:47 AM):  I just made Coconut Cauliflower Soup that had Turmeric in it. The recipe was in Parade magazine that was in last Sunday's newspaper. Oct.9,2016 I also follow the Brain diet. 1)superfoods -olive oil,green tea and leafy greens(broccoli, spinach and kale) These are antioxidants. 2) Eat dark hued foods like beets, tomatoes and avocadoes They help with blood flow that helps promote neuron growth in the hippocampus where learning and memory are stored. 3) Eat nuts,especially walnuts,curcumin and pomegranates These fight amyloid plaques. 4)Eat fish, blueberries,grapes,coffee and dark chocolate. These foods help develop new neurons, like miracle-gro for the brain. My source is AARP Bulletin. October 2015 issue We lost my dad last year to Alzheimer's so I am in the same boat as many people. I also have short term memory loss due to many seizures last year. Thank goodness for my memo pad, calender on my cell phone. Plus Siri reminds me when I ask her to.,  Carole H. KY

I have called them 5 times and left messages, texted twice, emailed 3 times and FB messaged once. No response at all. How long do I need to wait to take further action and to whom do I need to report this company? ,  Disgruntled

2347 Tumeric (10/14/2016 9:36:03 AM):  Was reading some posts and went and did a lot of searching on turmeric and cannot find anything about how much to take? Or whether you put it on your food or take a pill (which is all chemcials). What do you guys do? A sprinkle here or there? I remember cinnamon was the big thing there for a while but same problem, how much? how often? What forms? Curcumin is the chemical in turmeric that gives it its color.,  Joanie in FL Keys

2348 Posting review on Facebook when company has no Fac (10/14/2016 9:40:18 AM):  A few days ago, I posted here asking how to posta review of a company on Facebook.

Can I just post the review on my Facebook page?,  Virginia Ann S VA

2353 Kindle (10/14/2016 9:56:24 AM):  Thinking about getting my great grandson a Kindle Fire for Christmas. I have one and he loves to get on it. He is 7. If I do get one, and install some games o there, then will he be ablee to order games etc and charge it to my amazon/kindle acct? I sure don't want that to happen. I want to be the one to put the games on there myself. Does anyone of you have 2 Kindles set up on your acct, and how does that work? Thank you,  Larie/Ky

2354 Survey answer rejections (10/14/2016 10:32:08 AM):  Just now, I was invited to do a survey about my purchase made in store or online within the past week. My only online purchase was buying assorted postage stamps online from USPS. I was asked what NON-grocery/pharmacy purchase I'd made. It wouldn't let me type in "USPS". I had to click on ""Other" as my non-grocery purchase. Then I was asked to name the specific Website I made my online non-grocery purchase at. I typed in "USPS. but got onscreen message saying I given invalid response! I then typed in "United States Postal Service". But again got onscreen message saying invalid response! I gave up doing that survey!,  Virginia Ann S VA

2359 My Survey/Global Test Market (10/14/2016 12:08:27 PM):  Earlier, this week I received e-mails from both companies,stating, if you had a problem cashing rewards checks to let them know. I deleted them,as I was able to cash checks. However, when I viewed my bank statement on-line, I noticed two charges. Guess what the charges were for both companies,who did not pay the bank !!Did anyone else have a problem with My Survey & Global ? I would like to know, how I go about getting re-imbursed for their errors.Are these survey site going out of business ?,  Linda M Rhode Island

2360 Update on (10/14/2016 12:24:05 PM):  Whew!! The well diggers were here almost all day yesterday and so far today. The well was over 100' down!! There were many complications and problems but about an hour ago they finally got the well workings pulled out!! Hubby said, "I stopped worrying about how much this is costing me a long time ago!" They need to seal the well according to State regulations. We will get a piece of paper for our money. This is most likely saving us from a lawsuit down the road. The previous owners had part of the well pipe cut off and then cemented over the top. That was before the strict laws were passed. We have never had well water. I had an accident last week. I'm injured and it has set me back on packing and moving. I've been trying to work anyway but the pain is really bad. I don't have 6-8 weeks to wait for bone to heal...,  Google Researcher

2374 Son arrived (10/14/2016 3:16:26 PM):  After leaving from here (GSP), my son arrived around 5 am our time today in Japan. He was able to message me on facebook. But it is 13 hours ahead of us. So I say he is living in the future. He'll have jet lag for several days, I'm sure!,  Susan, SC

The winds have been really high since last night even over 100 mph at the ridge of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, etc. The rain is light, but the wind has calmed down for now also. We are not out of the woods since we have more high winds, etc coming this weekend.,  Heather, NV

2385 Tart Cherry Juice (10/15/2016 7:53:59 AM):  Wonderful for joint pain and swelling My grand-daughter works as cashier in local grocery store a lady came thru with a expensive $20 bottle of concentrated tart cherry juice she told dgd she had been to many doctors and tried many medications nothing really gave her relief except the cherry juice she explained how to use it 1 oz once a day everyday Grand daughter purchased a bottle and took it home to her mom and then told me My hubby has severe multiple joint osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia (sp?) and since earlier this year I developed osteoarthritis in both ankles I purchased a bottle and have been taking it 1 week to me its a miracle my ankles are no longer swollen or tight and achy I dont know if this will work for you but its sure worth a try and this tart cherry juice is full of potassium and antioxidants I looked up its benefits its amazing how something so simple can help so many aliments ,  Believer

2401 Military records (10/15/2016 4:23:37 PM):  I sent in for my dads army records. He was a POW in WW2. In German prison camp. It's been 9 months and I finally heard from them today saying that most of the army records in St Louis burnt up but that have a smaller file of his records that they put together, just bits and pieces and are wanting $70 for this. I thought next of kin could order these for free anyone know what I should do? ,  Larie/ky

2404 Next Part (10/15/2016 7:14:24 PM):  Well I took everyone's advice & made a practice 6 panel skirt out of an old sheet. I got skirt fitting pretty nice looking. At first it just flared out too much from the hips. From hip line down to hem I went in 1.5 inches on each panel. From waist to hip line 5/8 inch seam allowance. Fits nice. Yuck now though I have to iron and cut out pattern on my nice fabric. Really don't like ironing! Also my machine can be a stinker when I change thread. Takes a few practice times to get tension right. What part of sewing is your least favorite? Guess I'll start ironing tomorrow and getting sewing machine used to new fabric.,  Vicki, Va.

2407 dementia/Joanie in the Keys (10/15/2016 9:07:37 PM):  I do all of the puzzles that I can. I walk around my farm in the evening. If the weather is bad I walk the inside perimeter of Walmart, my closest big box store. I do Classical Stretch with Miranda Esmonde-White 2x a week. Thanks for the suggestion of fish oil. I used to be on it but stopped since I take many meds. It is easier to eat fish 2x a week. I know the fish oil is more concentrated so will look for it the next time I am at the store. My neurologist told me not to give up my office job, so I am still working. This will be my 40th year in the same job. Thank goodness I write everything down in my phone message book. My husband and I share customer service for our business. Thanks again.,  Carole H. KY

2419 Ordering Extra Booklets (10/16/2016 11:58:06 AM):  I've sent out copies of my booklet of prose to various extended family members. I just started thinking last night that some of those family members may want to order additional booklet from me to give their friends. How do I determine how many extra booklets I should order so I don't end up ordering too many? And wind up with lots of leftovers? And should I wait until I actually have some extended family members asking me for booklets they can give their friends?,  Virginia Ann S VA

2422 Love those Cubs. (10/16/2016 3:21:57 PM):  We enjoyed Joe Maddon's creativity when he managed the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and now he's using his magic on the Chicago Cubs. I remember when he was in an extra inning game and had run out of pitchers, so he put in a player who had never pitched in the pros. They ended up winning. He said he put the player on the mound because he had pitched in High School,  Bob, PA

2428 red, sore toe (10/16/2016 10:12:54 PM):  Sorry a little gross. I could use some help. DD has a red, sore area half way down beside her big toe nail. I thought she might have an ingrown toe nail and had her soak it in Epsom salts. After she soaked it and was drying her foot she said some pus came up beside her toe nail. Looking at it now it is still inflamed but it is not down around the end of the nail, and nail does not seem to be misshaped. It is along the side of the nail. Could it be an abscess? How would you treat it? Obviously if it gets worse we will see a doctor but not there yet.,  unsure how to treat

2430 Samaritan's Purse (10/17/2016 7:15:42 AM):  We picked up two boxes to fill up yesterday at church. One girl. One boy. Now? What do I put in these boxes? I am assuming not clothes as I do not know the age receiving the box. Assuming no food? Crayons might melt? No lotion or liquid? What are the ages that receive these boxes? Right now I am thinking stuffed animal, probably a doll for the girl. Toothbrush. Is toothpaste allowed? Bar of soap and wash rag. Pencils, markers, small puzzle books, story books. Guess I need a tape measure to make sure I do not get anything to big. Want to put in as much as I can.,  All help appreciated.

2442 Eye Doctor (10/17/2016 2:31:19 PM):  Hubbys reg eye doctor turned 65 this year and retired he had his yearly check up today we ended up waiting over an hour tested then saw new doctor who didnt speak very good english the doctor was in and out in 1-2 minutes his eyes changed very little instead of yearly visits we were told it will now be every 6 months no problems thats just how often this new doctor likes to see her patients We are not happy with this and may be finding a new eye doctor I am thinking his insurance covers (1) visit per year she said it wouldnt improve his vision but has a small membrane in his eye no surgery just a laser will take care of itbut she didnt think insurance would cover it and it wont improve his vision the lady assisting her piped up YES !!!! insurance covers it then the doctor was all hip ho we'll schedule the surgery see you in 6 months the doctor left the room Hubby said no if it doesn't improve vision he does want to have it done I cant blame him plus we are trying to keep cost down another co-pay for office visit, and surgery copays , follow ups But the lady finishing the computer entries hadn't paid attention asked did we want her to schedule surgery we said no and then she said we'll get you back in 6 months We think they have lost a lot of customers the office used to be packed is now almost empty we felt they needed to make some extra $$ and here's a way to get some plus we noticed if you arent getting surgery or something cosmetic you are shuffled around to wait excessively while others with later appts go ahead of you ,  Shuffled

2511 Easy spicy fudge recipe (10/19/2016 5:31:16 PM):  This is pretty much just the basic Eagle Brand fudge recipe with a few additions. My friend makes it as directed; I do my melting in the microwave (on high in 30 second increments, stirring until all melted) and it comes out fine. Coffee Cinnamon Cayenne Fudge 14 oz. can condensed milk 1 heaping tsp. ground cinnamon 1 tsp. espresso granules (Starbucks Via is fine for this) 1/2 tsp. cayenne (or chipotle, which I haven't tried) 1/2 tsp. sea salt (1/4 tsp. if use salted butter) 1 tsp. vanilla 12 oz. 63% cocoa or higher chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (Guittard is good, but other brands work as long as they are at least 63%) 3 T. unsalted butter, cut into 1/2" pieces Butter bottom and sides of 8" square pan. Line with sheet of waxed or parchment paper. Mix spices and coffee; mix with vanilla to dispel lumps. In med. saucepan, mix condensed milk and spices. Stir in chocolate and butter. Heat on low 3-8 minutes until all is melted and smooth, stirring constantly. Scrape into prepared pan and smooth the top. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Run a warm knife around edge. Remove to cutting board. Peel off paper. Cut fudge into 1" squares. Store refrigerated in airtight container. ,  Linda, TX

There were three men in the car and the policeman asked them what they were doing in ME. They said they were going fishing for lobster. The policeman told them that they took a wrong turn.

If...I leave it for hours and come back, then it's ok, I can wake it up. I don't know how to troubleshoot this. Is it a mouse problem or monitor problem? Seems weird.,  Karen-IA

2514 Cataract Surgery (10/19/2016 6:40:05 PM):  I am thinking about getting cataract surgery and wondered if anyone has had the surgery. First of all I don't have hazy or blurry vision, colors are sharp and clear. I just wear cheap reading glasses for small print. My biggest concern is at night on- coming headlight are really "distorted". Last year my eye Dr said I had some cataracts but my vision was too good for her to recommend surgery. This year she said if I feel uncomfortable driving at night my cataract surgery would be approved. We talked about the surgery that would eliminate reading glasses. It is quite expensive $3900 per eye but may be worth it in the long run. My dilemma is trying to decide if I really need the surgery at this time or should I wait until next year or even later. A few of my friends are against the surgery. They have the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mind set and suggested I wear driving glasses at night. Any thoughts? ,  Susan TX

2600 Twelve Weeks Now Done (10/21/2016 10:13:47 AM):  Today I finished physical therapy from my total knee replacement. I met and surpassed every goal she had set for me so we both were very pleased.

I even have enough fabric left to make pillow shams. I have a quilt to make for myself for the family room and another bedroom quilt, they both will get done in the next two weeks.

2688 Paula Young wigs returns (10/23/2016 12:59:11 PM):  I recently made my first wig purchase from Paula Young. Though I was satisfied with the quality I didn’t like the way it looked on me and have decided to return it. Their return policy has very strict rules. Each wig must be in pristine condition with hair net, tissue paper, inserts and tags still on. The wig I want to return fits their restrictions well, however not being aware of these rules I removed their tags before trying it on. I can reattach one tag but the second one I cannot find. Because of their strictness you won’t receive a refund or store credit if the wig doesn’t fit to a tee when returned. I have read many complaints in Consumer Reports about PY’s poor customer service when it comes to returns and am wondering if they would make an exception. Has anyone here had any luck returning a wig to PY with one tag taken off? I don’t want to spend $7.99 to send it back and then get nothing out of it. Just wondering what is best to do.,  Just asking

2722 1 of those days (10/24/2016 1:03:49 PM):  DH made me a new chicken coop yesterday. I had some left over paint & decided to paint it. I had to go to Dollar General & get a tray. After getting home & doing a few other things I got everything ready to paint only to find out the tray had a large crack in the side. Ended up make another trip back to get a new one. This is not the first time I got something from this store & ended up make a return trip because it was damaged. Then I went to CVS & wanted to get gas right across the street. I got all the way to the other side of town before I realized I never went to the gas station. I think I should have stayed home.,  cathy oh

2739 G R in her (retirement) home (10/24/2016 7:47:31 PM):  We have now spent two nights in our "new" home. We got internet tonight but they messed up our phone so we do not have phone service. My chronic illness will not flare up tonight I HOPE!!! I've been holding my own! Not having a working phone is dangerous for me if I should have a health crisis. We still don't have everything moved here but we have what we need to get by! Funniest thing at Church yesterday morning. I just came into the Church and heard a young man talking to someone else. He said, "We'll be moving as soon as we find a house!" I walked over to them and announced that I have a house to sell as soon as we can get it ready! I told him "3 bedroom, 2 bath, 4 level split." He asked where so I told him and he asked which school district so I told him and said is the best in the state. I don't know if they came by to try to find it as he didn't have an address. I'm hoping he was serious as we'd like to sell before the end of this year. God is so good to me!! ,  Google Researcher

2767 Prayer request, this is just to wierd (10/25/2016 6:12:03 PM):  Prayer request, again. Ok this is just to weird and I can't wrap my mind around it. January of this year I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I have been pretty much ok till about 6 weeks ago when I started having really bad nausea and dehydrating and winding up in the ER. One trip I was admitted to hospital for 3 days. Last Monday I woke up with the nausea and went to Paulding E.R. To make a long story short they said my EKG was abnormal an after a heart cauterization they said one of my arteries was blocked 99% , one of my veins was blocked 80% and the other artery they weren't sure about. Yesterday they took me down and did a heart cath, put a stint in my arteries and a stint in a vein and said the other vein was ok. I fell good, but how do you get from nausea to stints. Anyway please pray for me a quick and complete healing, ,  Janice in Ga

2798 Unbelievable scones request! (10/26/2016 8:58:39 AM):  My brother's wife & I are members of our county's emergency rescue squad auxiliary. Our auxiliary has a booth at an area festival held on Gwynns Island, VA the last Saturday in June! I made up some lemon-blueberry scones from a King Arthur Flour mix, among other items! I learned from our auxiliary secretary at the September auxiliary meeting that a gentleman had raved about the scones we "sold" at our booth. I was the only member who made scones to offer! The gentleman left his phone number with our secretary so she could notify him whenever we would have more scones to sell! Our auxiliary is holding another fund raiser bake sale this Saturday outside of an independent grocer in Mathews, VA. this bake sale will benefit our county's emergency rescue squad! I am making at least 3 different flavors of scones from King Arthur Flour mixes for that bake sale. My brother's wife called me this morning with unbelievable news! Our auxiliary secretary had called the gentleman to let him know that we'd have scones to offer this Saturday! He told our secretary that he will buy as many scones as I can make! I just got a fresh order of scone mixes from King Arthur Flour! I ordered more lemon-blueberry, apple cinnamon, French Toast. And already had a box of vanilla cream on hand. I need help to get my baked goods in & out of the oven, & on cooling racks. The gal who takes care of me when Bill & Annette are out of town will be coming tomorrow to help me with my baking! I will see how many boxes I can get made up & baked for Saturday. I was planning to package 2 scones of same flavor in a mini wooden loaf sized basket with a waxed paper liner. Fortunately, I have at least three 6-packs of the wooden baskets, plus a partial package. I'm shocked beyond words that one person wants to "buy" as many scones as I can make! The auxiliary never puts a set price on our baked goods. WE ask potential buyers to donate what they think the baked goods is worth to them!I will be interested to see how many boxes of scone mix I can make up tomorrow. I told my brother's wife I'd have my scones packaged up for her to pick up Friday. Then she can get them up to our bake sale Saturday morning with her baked goodies! Of course, I will now need to order more scone mixes from King Arthur Flour to have for us,the monthly auxiliary meeting snack, & future auxiliary bake sales!,  Virginia Ann S VA

2807 Rosettes (10/26/2016 11:02:02 AM):  Has anyone every made these. My mother made these when we were kids. They are like funnel cakes only daintier. Do you know where I can find the mold? It was like cast iron and had a handle on it. You would dip it in a batter; then into hot grease; then after it released onto paper towel, you would sprinkle it with powdered sugar.,  Janice/ok

2815 Another umbrella question (10/26/2016 12:15:12 PM):  Now I';m researching with USAA.

I clicked on the new to Medicare,as I had no idea what all the letters stood for.It is a lot to read, so I kept using it for several days.I did that, so when I went to a meeting, I would have some idea of what was being said.Very useful site ! Then once I had a good understanding of Medicare , I went to my Blue Cross site, and looked at all the different drug coverage plans.In the beginning,as you are reading all of it, it seems so confusing.By reading them a few times a week,I was able to get a good idea of everything. The meeting I was to attend, was cancelled,and the agent that was to give it, came to my house yesterday.He was surprised when I told him about the,and that it helped me to get an idea of what it is all about. Hope this site can help someone.,  Linda M Rhode Island

2848 More on Medicare D (10/27/2016 7:14:49 AM):  So I have Humana for Medicare D and decided to do all prescriptions through the mail for my DH and I only take generic meds. I was planning a hip replacement and was kinda mental so I really did not look into things but I have now....found out that all medications and all prescriptions are not alike. For instance, if they send me 60 Tramadol, they charge me $4 but if they send me 90 Tramadol, it is free. My doctor ordered my Omeprazole and Zyrtec as a prescription and I figured it would be free so let it no no. I was charged for it and could get it cheaper in CVS. Little by little my brain is coming back after this surgery and I need to list all my medications RX and OTC and figure out how I can get them cheapest....oh, and don't forget Publix give free Lisinopril, Metformin and something else....the catch is, only one month at a time (at least down here),  Joanie in FL Keys

Yesterday, after her doctor's appointment and an ultrasound, she sent me a picture of the baby. The picture is so clear and almost looks like a regular picture. I could not believe how good he looks.

2871 Paying for baking assistance (10/27/2016 1:45:59 PM):  Because of major balance problems, I need baking assistance to put my baking in & out of my oven & on to cooling racks. I made up 5 boxes of different flavored scone mixes this morning for the fund raiser bake sale the rescue squad auxiliary I'm in is holding this Saturday. A gentleman had raved about my scones at our auxiliary's last bake sale in June. And wanted to be notified when our group would have more scones to "sell". Our auxiliary secretary notified him that there would be scones available. He told that secretary he would "buy" all the scones I could make! I had Annette ask the gal who looks after me when Bill & Annette are out of town. Barbara jean was very ahppy to be my baking assistant this morning. We spent 4 hours doing all my mixing & baking! Bill recommended that I pay her for having been my baking assistant. So I paid her $25. I now wonder if I should have paid her more for the time she spent helping me! She drove her car here to help me out. And will be coming back to help take care of me 11/23-11/25 when Bill & Annette are out of town. ,  Virginia Ann S VA

I have done the math and think 62 will be it for me as it takes so long to recoup the lost money. Thanks!,  Susan, SC

I have googled and found Target…but opps you go to the Target website and no they don’t have it. I have been to several different sports goods web sites. Like a throw a hunter might need in the woods. Well those all work off a car volt system (the cigarette lighter)… well that’s not gonna work for my sister is it. I can find some but like the Target link…once I go to the web site…its not there. I do NOT want to pay the price that I did find on one (over hundred dollars)…. I am looking for a throw….that can be heated by batteries. ,  Nancee/IN

If Ohio law says you are to take a lunch break, you take it. Where do I find how many hours I can work before I take it? I have Googled and am just not finding what I need. Mostly I'm finding places to file a claim. I don't have a claim - just trying to plan my day. Thanks!,  Ohio Lunch Laws?
