Wish I knew) # 580 today., Sharon W/WI 6135 New Printer (2/22/2014 11:15:48 AM): I need a new printer and read some good reviews about this the Brother MFC-J870dw Inkjet all in one which will be on sale at Staples this weekend. The only complaint that got me was that you had to remove the paper tray before loading paper. I’ve never had to do that before and just want to know if it is an easy thing to do or if it would be a big disappointment with the printer., Rose 6136 Swagbucks Code (2/22/2014 11:23:10 AM): Turning6 before 1pm PT/4pm ET for 4 SBs!, Melody 6138 RAOK-Lean Cusisine Code (2/22/2014 12:25:48 PM): Lean Cuisine code from Orange Chicken LH (or maybe K)R9-9F44-W6XG9 Please post when used., Susan, LA 6141 Damon (2/22/2014 1:12:19 PM): Thank all of you who are praying for my nephew and just for being here. As of now Damon can no longer see (high amonia levels have done neurological damage), cannot walk without assisstance (he shuffles like one who just had a stroke), or feed himself. He is also experiencing hallucinations. For anyone with a medical background, his amonia level is 178 now. Please continue to pray for Damon. He needs them as do his mother, Sally. Damon has an appohntment at John Hopkins Hospital on Monday. Thank you guys so very much., elizabeth va 6142 induction stove & canning (2/22/2014 1:18:34 PM): OK. Does anyone have an induction stove top? Do you like it? And part two is do you can with it? From what I hear people can have problems since the glass top can break (like the ceramic ones). I am still leaning towards having natural gas added to the kitchen (have it for the water heater and furnace) and getting a gas stove. For some reason DH doesn't really like that idea (now says we should get an induction stove). Oh, and the cost of an induction stove would be about the same as putting in the gas line & a new gas stove so cost of the stove isn't an issue (been saving for a while to do this)., Heather, NV 6147 Amish Mafia (2/22/2014 2:25:26 PM): One of the stars of this stupid TV show, John Schmucker, who plays John on the show, has been sentenced to 3 months in prison.

He lives locally., Bob, PA 6148 Spine & Win also Hot slots (2/22/2014 2:33:07 PM): I have been playing this for years and have won and received the little packages of candy. Today, I received the 2 candy prizes i had won, but but came with postage due of $1.84 They did have $1.40 on it already. What would you do? The candy is hardly worth it. I know for sure, I will not waste my time playing the game., Lynn 6149 Frogs (2/22/2014 2:36:16 PM): I hear frogs hollering, a sure sign of Spring. 57 here today., KY Grandma 6155 Rags/Shoddy Mills (2/22/2014 3:31:36 PM): In the 1800's up until around 1950, our town had a "Shoddy Mill." Shoddy is a term for reworked -- repurposed fabric -- usually wool. Rags were collected and then made into "new" garments. At www.slackshoddymill.com you can view quite a bit about this industry. This company went out of business in 1953. So I am sure that "rag" men bought rags and then sold them to this type of factory., Joanne Vt 6161 Susan,SC (2/22/2014 5:27:42 PM): Hi Susan, I hate to ask a stupid question but what is a "like button"?

I would also love AirPrint so I can print from the iPad., Pat, NC 6163 dinner? (2/22/2014 5:57:45 PM): I started menu planning again, BUT I seem to be making 'too many' Asian dishes (per DH who likes to go out to Chinese Food for Sunday lunch). So, I guess I need to come up with different dishes (and put the Asian recipes away for a few months). So, what did you have for dinner and how are you figuring out your menu? And, how do you figure out what sides to have? I usually figure out a main dish, but I don't make many different side dishes either. , Heather, NV 6177 Prayers again please (2/22/2014 8:38:25 PM): Several months ago I asked for prayers for my niece. She is a young mother of 4, and she was dealing with cancer in her intestines. She was operated on in early December and things were looking good, but we just found out that the cancer has spread to her kidneys. Please keep her and her husband and kids in your prayers. The kids are all under 10 years old and they really need their mother in their lives. We are hoping for a miracle. Her name is Britny. Thanks, Yvonne LA 6190 Garage Door Lock (2/23/2014 1:44:33 AM): This is pretty out there but I thought someone here might be able to help. My mom's garage opens via a key (tumbler) on the frame around the door itself - not in the door. When you turn the key, it activates the door opener. The tumbler needs replacing & is over 40 yrs old. I'm trying to find a replacement lock but am searching the wrong item - garage door lock - only pulls up ones that install in the door itself. Would anyone happen to know what I should be searching? If I can find the item, I am pretty sure we can install it & would like to save the cost of a full service call. Thanks so much for any help., Lisa P, CT 6203 Putting things in perspective (2/23/2014 8:22:44 AM): With the Olympics competition over, the medal count is final. Russia was the largest winner with 33 medals, we were second with 28, and Norway was third with 26. What country did the best?-Norway without a doubt. The reason is that Russia has a population of 167 million people, we have a population of 300 million, and Norway 5 million. Per capita, Norway has the best performance by far of any other nation., Bob, PA 6204 Creation Rewards (2/23/2014 8:32:11 AM): I cannot find where on this site where the rewards are for cashing in points? Where do I find it?, Lynn 6208 Need info on internet service (2/23/2014 9:59:39 AM): I have Verizon wireless on my phone,(just a plain ole phone) and I have the little hotbox thing to use when we go traveling,camping etc, and have 5GB that I can use. Problem is that I have been gong over my 5G each month lately, although I have not been using the laptop & kindle near as much. When I call Verizon, they tell me that I am just using that much, but I do not see how. Anyway, We do have DISH for our tv, does anyone have their internet through them, how much, and do u like it. Would I still need my Verizon box to get my Wifi. Trying to save money, but still get more than 5GB of data. Does this make any sense? I would have to still keep Verizon for just our 2 regular phones, right?, Larie/Ky 6209 Puzzle (2/23/2014 10:00:17 AM): Last week's challenge: Name a famous entertainer: two words, four letters in each word.

Can anyone help? I tried searching through Swagbucks but couldn't find how to actually change the bulb. I feel a bit silly not knowing how to change the bulb, but oh well. Thanks for any help. , Amy J, OH 6224 What's for dinner (2/23/2014 11:59:42 AM): I am not sure right now but good if I am not involved in preparing or cleaning up after.

Also may save $$$ if you can do it yourself, and if not you may see how much work and money the repair will entail. I've done this so many times and saved money, time, and worry.

Both girls have appointments in Kansas City, MO. on March 4th. with a doctor that specializes in alternate treatment called Cranial Release Technique. The treatment has had lots of positive results. We are praying that this will be the answer Any and all prayers and good thoughts will be much appreciated.

See ya all at 4AM PT., Lynn 6345 Value (2/24/2014 4:56:48 PM): Where can I find out the value of items? I have never bought or sold anything on Ebay...probably the only one that hasn't. Some things I own and some my parents have. Some are old. I just don't want to put this stuff in a garage sale. For example, my MIL and her sister, DH's aunt, had the same set of good china. They both gave them to me when they passed away. I don't have a complete setting of 24 because some things are broken or chipped. They have been packed away since I got them, but I suppose there would be at least 16 settings. They are German china and old. I have a good set of my own and neither my daughter or daughter-in-law are interested. Nobody uses good china for dinner parties anymore. Where can I find a decent, honest quote as to the value of something like this? There are other things, too, but you get the idea. I could maybe go to an antique store, but how do you know if they are giving you a fair price? I am just starting to think about getting rid of some things so I haven't looked into it yet. I imagine there are websites and books? Any suggestions? , Sue, MI 6346 Checkout51 (2/24/2014 4:59:24 PM): I don't see the $3 for the Glade Sense & Spray starter kit.

I don't want to post the answer if anyone else is still working on it., Gina, CT 6348 What would you do? (2/24/2014 5:06:55 PM): We have lived in this house for 10 years now. All of our neighbors are great. The neighbor behind us is a younger couple with four kids. Over the years we have socialized and been friendly etc... We do not have fencing between us. (I know some of you will think this is no big deal, but you have to see it as trash.) 5 years ago they decided to re do there planting bed closest to our property. They planted two pompas grass, I think that's what they are. They are about 6 foot tall and about 10 feet wide with both plants. Well in the fall they turn straw like and start shedding. We have two large zebra grasses which are very large but we cut ours down the week prior to Halloween. The wind blows across our yard and usually straight at the back of our house. By this time in Feb my deck, patio, pool, sunroom screens and yard are filled with thousands of these 'straws' from their grasses. The first year we asked them to please cut them back sometime in Jan at least, they didn't, so my husband went and tied them up. They did not like us doing that but when a week went by after they said they would cut them, we felt we had to take action. 2nd year, we asked again, keep in mind once the first heavy snow falls, they are all mangled and do not look attractive at all. They did nothing again. In the spring I asked again because they were everywhere. They did finally cut them in March and had their kids come over and pick up all the 'straws'. 3rd year, again I asked and the father said, well it's all about what you want isn't it? I asked him what pleasure they got out of seeing these things mangled and blowing all over the neighbor's yards, no answer. 4th year, they decided to burn them down late in the fall, fabulous, problem solved that year. Today, it is so windy right now, while I was out picking up after the dog, several hit me in the head. I have had it, how many times, how many years do I have to ask??????????? I could never be this type of neighbor. I don't even let my dog's hair go out of the brush when I am outside brushing her so someone doesn't end up with it in their bushes. How can I get their attention but still remain civil and of course lawful?, CB OH 6365 Sunshine (2/24/2014 7:51:07 PM): Saw your post about ipad 4 and I have the ipad 2. Can you tell me if the ipad 4 takes pictures that are any better than ipad 2.

Thank you again everyone :), Brenda C. AR 6407 Are people THIS dumb? (2/25/2014 10:43:18 AM): Are people really this dumb? Really? Everyday I check Craigslist for Beanie Babies for the shoe box project. We like to put one in every box. Yesterday I saw some tiger beanies with misprinted tags advertised for $150,000. He had some others and wanted a total of $550,000 Others are asking for thousands of dollars for "rare" beanies. I've had many, many of the "rare" beanies over the years that I bought for .50 each. Yesterday I did get a VERY good buy. People were moving and wanted to get rid of the collection. I got 177 full size beanies and 60 teenie beanies for a total of $50. All in excellent condition. Who knows, maybe I have a $150,000 Beanie in one of those storage tubs? :), Sharon in Still winter MI 6410 SB Code (2/25/2014 11:16:45 AM): Sweets88, Vicki, Va 6412 Kellogg's family reward (2/25/2014 11:31:37 AM): Here is a code off a package of Mother's cookies: NGCM-XKV5-7795-YWKX, Heather, NV 6415 Showing House (2/25/2014 11:39:22 AM): Showing house tomorrow.

Go to the dealer and find a new car and discuss price. Then say you have a trade in and deal on the trade in value. Another day and another salesperson, go in and say you have a trade in (same car) and want to buy a new car (same car you looked at with another salesperson). Which way did you get the better deal? Is it better to just say from the start you have a trade in or wait until getting price for a new car and then say you have a trade in. Second question is if you have a trade in and the car is a few years old but has had about 5 different repairs, all under warranty. Does that hurt the trade in value or could it help since it has new parts and is now running good?

She went into a seizure last night at 11:30 and I could not get her out of it. After hard labor getting a 63# stiff, dead weight dog out of her crate and down the stairs, I didn't have the strength to lift her into the back of my SUV, so had to wake up the next door neighbor to help me. Of course this happens when DH is out of town. Fortunately we have great neighbors and he even went with me to the emergency clinic. Just got back from seeing her, she is still having tremors but no more full blown seizures. I won't be bringing her home before midnight or possibly tomorrow morning depending on how she is doing at 6PM. No sleep for me last night or probably until she is home and OK., CB OH 6499 Request for Sadie (2/26/2014 11:10:04 AM): Yesterday my DIL had another ultrasound and non-stress test; she is at 32 weeks and will have C-Section on April 15. This is her facebook post: So right now we are looking at getting some additional testing done on Sadie. The doctors have been looking at the ultrasound of her brain and have determined that she has a very mild form of ventriculomegaly. Basically this means the ventricles in her brain are measuring slightly larger than should be. Instead of a 10mm its 11.9mm. This could mean a lot of things but really there's a very good chance that nothing is wrong. To be sure of that we will be getting some extra screening done to rule out certain conditions including down syndrome. Please note that no matter what we will love Sadie just as much and will do anything for her. Our son had called us earlier that morning as he was at home their almost 3 year old son; her parents were supposed to be there to babysit but said it was too early for them to get up. I won't go into their selfishness! Anyway... I'd just appreciate thoughts, blessings, prayers for our first grand daughter. , Pat 6509 Facebook (2/26/2014 2:23:58 PM): I'm trying to put a post on my facebook page.

The little light blue box under it is Post = where I usually click to post; but it is "light" and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? , Pat 6514 Toxic (2/26/2014 3:34:05 PM): Ok - I need some wisdom...someone I had been fairly close to for the past 10 years, we've ended our friendship. I used quote marks, because this really was a toxic relationship. She's a very fake person, thrives on causing drama, drains one's energy, yadda yadda. I could tell you stories on some of the things she has done/said/pulled, but you probably wouldn't believe them. Honestly, she used to be on some Rx that helped (I personally believe she's bi-polar), but she's been off for the past few years and the drama has been escalating. She has ruined MANY relationships with friends, including immediate family members who now disown her and consider her "dead" to them. She's also suffering from an eatting disorder, and I know that once someone has starved their body of nutrition long enough, the body will go into survival mode and "shut down" the part of the brain where reasoning, logic and higher thoughts are processed (thereby diverting nutrition to the brain stem to keep the body alive). So, there's no use in trying to talk to her - if you said "the grass is green" she would argue until she's blue in the face that "grass is red, has always been red, you know it's always been red, you're such a liar, etc"... OK - so, friendship has ended. I wish her and her family well, but I refuse to be pulled or baited into her drama. I am focusing on my own life, my family, and things have been so incredibly POSITIVE, that I really wish we would have parted ways a long time ago. Here's the problem: There are several third-party individuals who associate with us both, who are somewhat pressuring me to make ammends, etc. Their opinions are that as a "good Christian woman" I need to re-initiate friendship with her, etc. Of course, these are all people who have never experienced her DRAMA first hand. The people who have witnessed it tell me I'm better off. SO...how do I tell these very well-meaning people that I have no intention of trying to restore the "friendship"? I've told people I wish the woman and her family well, but that we no longer associate. I look them dead in the eye while saying this, without blinking, without shedding a tear. No one is getting the hint. I'm assuming they've never been in a relationship or situation like this, or else they would never try to lay this guilt trip on me. And YES - we live in a small town - everyone knows everyone, same school district, run into each other professionally, etc. Can't avoid it, but I'm not going to run and hide from her, either.

Woman and all other races need NOT apply. He was very specific about which people this would help. why on earth would we want to divide people even more, and why would we want to take a step backwards? We just celebrated MLK day and his speech is played over and over. He dreamed of time when people would just see each other as people not one race or another. why can't we just make a program that would help anyone in need, why specifically black men. Other people are having a hard time right now not just black men. This is just like the colleges they started accepting people on quotas rather than on merit and it has been a disaster. When I worked at UPS I saw first hand people being promoted to jobs they were not qualified for simply because they need so many "minorities" in certain positions. If this was put forth as a program to help only "white males" We would be hearing the protests across the country. why is it ok the other way around. I just don't understand this President at all and it truly seems he is hell bent on dividing and destroying this country from the inside out. By the way I am not against helping black men or anyone else, I just think making the program to be specifically for them and saying no whites or woman allowed is the divisive part.

Mr. Page went on to say that Paul was clueless about women. This is what Mr. Page wrote (I miss the days when both parties competed for the votes of women and people of color."What more do you need?" out of sincere desire to hear the answer, not belittle the question.").That is the exact statement that Mr. Page wrote. I don't know about other women but I think Mr. Page's idea of women being unable to take care of themselves and needing the government to take care of them is just wrong. I agree with Rand Paul that women are strong and don't need to be treated like they are morons and incapable of taking care of themselves and their families., Jackie A., PA 6699 National Debt (2/28/2014 5:32:22 PM): Here is something I just don't understand. Donna Brazile in an article in the paper said that our national debt is down 37% in one year. If our national debt is down how come we need to raise the Debt Ceiling? She also said that the President cut the budget deficit in half since 2009. Can someone explain why we needed to raise the Debt Ceiling if we cut the budget in half?, Jackie A., PA 6701 Gas Milage (2/28/2014 5:49:15 PM): The President said that he wants to double the gas mileage on vehicles by 2025 saving families $8000 a year. I figured that out to $153 a week. I don't even average $153 a month. Gas right now at $3.69 so our gas isn't cheap here. Are they going to pay me to drive in order for me to save that much? Or is this another one of those savings like the $2500 a year that he says I am saving under Obamacare, which is costing me $5000 more this year than last year., Jackie A., PA 6703 Hospital census (2/28/2014 5:59:03 PM): At the small hospital I work at we have closed one of our department at least 3 days a week since about the beginning of the year. The outpatient surgery section I work in is also experiencing low census. Our CEO at our last staff meeting says that it is most likely from Obamacare since our patient that have private insurance don't want to pay the huge deductibles and are putting off surgeries and patients are doing whatever they can to stay out of the hospital and avoid huge bills. Most of the patients that we have right now are either Medicare, Medicaid or government insurance that pays without huge co-pays and no deductibles. The majority of our procedures now are colonoscopies., Jackie A., PA 6717 Illegals and military (2/28/2014 7:09:52 PM): I don't think our military should have to cut one dime as long as we are still doling out money to illegal immigrants. Seems like each party could meet and agree on this., Karen-IA 6718 Joe Biden (2/28/2014 7:16:29 PM): He goes on the View and says now with obamacare, women can stay home with the kids. Where is the war on women outcry. If a republican had said that, there would be a firestorm from women's rights groups outraged that women should stay home and raise kids., Karen-IA 6720 Quit work (2/28/2014 7:19:40 PM): I shake my head when I hear the politicians say people can now quit work cuz they have healthcare and can pursue their dreams. Seriously??? What do they think pays the other bills. I was a single mother, and we went years without health insurance. If it had been provided thru government subsidies, I still would have had to work to pay the bills, I wouldn't have had the luxury to pursue my dreams., Karen-IA 6721 Hoover Floormate/Jane (2/28/2014 7:24:24 PM): Our former neighbors loved Pergo! They did all the floors in the house next door in Pergo. They sold and bought another house last Fall. We miss them!!! When I talk to Jeanne and I remember I will ask her what she uses to clean Pergo. They are re-doing all the floors where they moved to be Pergo!, Google Researcher 6722 Current styles: (2/28/2014 7:25:47 PM): Remember when we'd all die of humiliation if a bra strap showed? (Well, maybe not you, Bob, but the girls in our pack.) Then, maybe 15-20 years ago (?) tank tops and racerback tops came into style and you couldn't possibly wear one of those with a regular bra without having your straps showing. Now, no one cares, whether from a morality standpoint or from a fashion standpoint. I absolutely hate that "look". Hasn't anyone ever heard of strapless bras these days? What makes anyone think that look is remotely attractive or that the wearer looks put together? There's no grace whatsoever. My mother wouldn't have let me off the farm with my straps so blatantly "out there", much less just "showing" and she wouldn't have gotten an argument from me about it, either. I would have felt then just as I do now -- it's ugly and ruins the look of the top. What I really don't understand is why the wearers can't see that. I can't even say, "...why the girls can't see that," because it's not only teens who are "rocking" that look -- often, it's their moms, too. I guess I'd rather see the bra straps than seeing the tops with no bra at all because I'm not a fan of the bra-less look for 99% of women. I just wish people would take the time to look in the mirror from the back and see how uncoordinated those bra straps make their outfits look. Of course, if a bra strap issue is my most pressing problem, I guess my life is pretty darn good!, Jane, CA 6725 Jeopardy (2/28/2014 7:48:14 PM): We went out for dinner tonight and were not home to watch Jeopardy. Of course I didn't think to tape it,so I was wondering if Arthur won again tonight. Can someone please post and let me know how the game turned out? Thanks., Sue, MI 6731 Parking meters: (2/28/2014 8:34:41 PM): Why are some people so upset over "parking meter Robin Hoods" who are kind enough to feed someone else's meter when the time's about to run out? No one would complain (I hope) if the car owner dashed up to the meter to shove in another quarter just in time., Jane, CA 6733 Our Nation (2/28/2014 8:56:03 PM): When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation. ~Unknown~ , Geri, IL 6735 Triplets report (2/28/2014 10:10:09 PM): The parents-to-be went to see a specialist in multiple birth deliveries. Expectant mom had a checkup with that Dr. and he told them "everything looks good". He told her those kids are playing soccer in there. She laughed and said she wondered what was going on!! (They are really active!) This was good news we are all happy to hear!!!, Google Researcher 6737 I just can't believe....: (2/28/2014 10:19:30 PM): ...the racism and racial profiling that's gone on here today (not having to do with he President himself)., Jane, CA 6738 Thanks! (2/28/2014 10:28:26 PM): This is late but better late than never :) I wanted to thank the people who sent my parents in assisted living Christmas cards. Their names are Ralph and Sequel Hadaway. My dad has Alzhimers and Mom dementia. They really enjoyed your cards especially Dad. He kept telling me they were from all over the United States. That he got them from "everywhere". I taped them all up in the shape of a Christmas tree on the back of the living room door for them to admire them :) I don't know if I got everyone's name - sorry if I missed yours but thank you to Mersying M. from Houston, TX Gail and Mike Berger, Delray Beach, FL Lisa S. - Roswell, GA Nora C. - Madison Heights, MI Julie S. - Greer, SC The Wilkersons in Abilene, TX Adina Hammond - you are so good about cards! - Goodyear, AZ Sheri M. - Wilmington, IL Ruth Brown - Willingboro, NJ The Goldstein family - Amherst, NY and last but not least - thank you for not only sending a card but doing the Christmas card exchange - Dianne Olsen., Donna Abbott, GA 6739 Fitbit Flex (3/1/2014 12:21:46 AM): I am looking for information about the Fitbit Flex. Since it's around $100, I'd like to know if it's worth the money. My husband and I are trying to eat better and exercise and I wondered if using the Fitbit and measuring activity was better than just wearing a pedometer and keeping track of how many steps we do each day., Judy B IL 6765 Names (3/1/2014 8:13:51 AM): Not to change the subject...I read an interesting article in the Washington Post about the importance of using someone's name when dealing with the public and in general. The article went on to say that it is more personal and people respond better to situations and statements. I'm starting to practice this, although in the past, I really haven't used a person's name much in a conversation because I can rarely remember it. Do you do this when you're dealing with people and if so, have you found it helpful? Gosh, this sounds like a job interview question. I will say that I HATE when you call a company, they ask for your name, and then say, "Mindy, how can I help you today?", Mindy, MD 6778 Review Blog (3/1/2014 9:40:50 AM): Please take a look at my blog, shouldhavethought as I am a blog ambassador and also am lucky enough to do product reviews for some big companies. http://tinyurl.com/mvbwfjq, Sue S, WI 6781 March (3/1/2014 9:59:15 AM): In like a lamb?

A brother still is in Springfield. We were home in January., Kathie-MD 6797 Rains and it pours!!! (3/1/2014 12:43:30 PM): Got hit with a double whammy today. A friend of my family that lives by my oldest brother gave me a message from him. He has cancer! Just found out... Then got my mail..VISA bill for $1,631.74. I thought that couldn't be right so started looking charge by charge. Get to the bottom of the bill. Two charges at Nordstroms, MOA in MN for $670.00 and 727.32. Don't think so! My hubby called the card co and they had pegged it as an unusual charge so had cut off our card! We didn't know until the bill came so now fraud investigators will be calling. They will be sending a new cc. Then hubby bought a water softener this morning and when he went to use the other card a second time it was refused. Suppose...water softener is over $500.00 so again an unusual charge. We have one more cc a "sometimes good" (American Express) because not every place will accept it. I'm seriously damp in this downpour!!!!!!, Google Researcher 6813 Susan, LA (3/1/2014 1:56:29 PM): Ha...That woman jailed for failing to turn in a video movie was in my county!! As ridiculous as it was, yes, they were just following procedures. Thank goodness all charges were dropped., Susan, SC 6819 Tinsel (3/1/2014 2:20:38 PM): It is with a very heavy heart and buckets of tears that we had to let our beloved Tinsel go today. This was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. At 7, she was way too young to leave us. She brought more joy and laughter here than we ever expected. Coming home without her little face at the door with a toy in her mouth hurts like hell. This house will never be the same. Tinsel was the best dog we have ever had, the sweetest and smartest and the most loving. I will be crying over this one for a long time to come. She went everywhere with us, even on vacations so I will see her all the time and everywhere I go., cb oh 6821 Daylight Savings Time (3/1/2014 2:23:06 PM): I just read we "spring forward" on March 9th, isn't this much earlier than usual?, Carol - IA 6824 Computer woes (3/1/2014 2:41:54 PM): Hi, again -- My computer's modem is acting up again, and I don't know why.

Very frustrating -- and the Nerd is coming back on Monday -- please keep your fingers crossed!, Alice Dodge, OR 6834 hybrid / plug in cars (3/1/2014 4:46:03 PM): Does anyone have one and can you give me the best/worst of owning one? DH is looking at them since he is tired of paying the gas bill for his older F150 to drive to work (it will be kept for when he wants to go 4x4 driving, camping, etc). DH is (online) looking at the Ford Fusion Energi (plug in unit) since it appears he could drive to and from work on all electric (he would plug it into a 110 plug each night). Now to figure out a dealer that has them so we can test drive them., Heather, NV 6840 Ragu UPC (3/1/2014 5:49:29 PM): Could someone share a Ragu Sauce UPC code?, Cathy B.

DH finally checked his today and it appears clean - Thank goodness!, no name, but happy 6848 Bob (3/1/2014 6:20:21 PM): Still working on computer with popups.

I do know doctors have always encouraged people over 50 to get a colonoscopy. My mom had colon cancer and now had the dreaded bag she dislikes so. I always encourage people to have the colonoscopy @ 50. I've had another Aunt die of it too. Many young people do get it before age 50. But I still think you are seeing a lot more because under the ins. changes - Obamacare etc. they are now covered @ l00%. My dh and I had them before and had to pay for them before this change. I started in my 40's with my Mom having the colon cancer. We've both had polyps found. I am reading now that our current ins. - Blue Cross Blue Shield HRA thru the State of GA health ins. plan for employees is denying the charges for the colonoscopy if you have EVER polyps saying it's no longer preventative but diagnostic. I hate to hear that! If you use that argument I've been called back in for to repeat a mammogram - extra side views because they thought they saw something but it was just dense breast tissue. Or would they say no more free preventative Pap smear visits if you were ever treated for a bad pap smear? I was back in the 80's and had a procedure done. My GF brought these up as she'd has had bad pap smears and mammograms that showed "something" but it was nothing serious over the years. She's a retired state employee with this same new ins. we have., Donna 6873 Puzzle (3/2/2014 7:35:04 AM): Answer: The first syllable of each two-syllable word sounds like a letter of the alphabet: Q, U, I, N, C, and Y.

Sleet is coming down like a hard rain. On a happy note, my grandson's basketball team won consolation in Regional game yesterday which qualifies them for first round of Area games next week. He got to play in 1:39 minutes of game and scored. For some reason most seniors have sat on the bench this season while the sophomores have played all season. It is sad for the seniors who have worked hard and have been starters until recently. (Two of sophs are coaches sons) They are good players, but I have felt badly for my grandson. It takes a lot of character to sit on the bench but yet get up and cheer for the others., Janice/Ok 6889 FOY Code (3/2/2014 12:51:07 PM): h3rwgg1eh for 24 points for 3 more users., Vicki, Va. 6891 Chevy gift exchange (3/2/2014 12:56:38 PM): Has anyone received their gift cards the won back in December thank, Kathy jo Ma 6903 Electricity cost (3/2/2014 4:51:52 PM): I have a dehydrator that is 600 watt.

(3/2/2014 5:37:42 PM): I recently ran my towels through the washer with vinegar, then baking soda to get the nasty smell out of them. Reading online, it states this is partially due to detergent build up and that most people use too much detergent. So....how much detergent do you use? I obviously want my clothes to be clean, but if I can use less detergent, that would be great! I have a front loader HE if that helps with the formulation...., Lisa S, OH 6917 Rare Disease Day (3/2/2014 7:32:38 PM): I thought I'd share with you an article my husband wrote for his station's website.

We are anticipating our first offer for our house today. I told hubby we have to look carefully, as we want to move to our new house/farm so bad we may make the mistake of not getting what we want/need out of this one. I am excited, but VERY cautious about this. We showed the house a total of 7 times in 5 days, and our realtor called last night saying the people who saw it on Sat want to make an offer. I will let you know how it goes. Please asking for positive thoughts on this., Charlotte W TX 6947 Downsizing portions, etc. (3/3/2014 9:23:46 AM): To continue with a post from last week (?), went to Mexican restaurant yesterday. Last time I went, they changed the menu. Ordered my usual "guacamole salad", which used to be guac in a rather deep molcajete and was $6. Large enough to eat quite a bit there and take some home. Last time, it was a true salad w/ shredded lettuce and guac drizzled (almost hard to find it) over the lettuce for $6!. Yesterday, I ordered "the one in the bowl" and it was a small bowl about the size they put the pats of butter in---for $5. Also when I got the bill, I noticed they charged a penny for water! I know it probably was just a method for inventory of how many glasses of water they serve, but it really upset me. I know that lots of places charge anywhere from 25 to 50 cents for "to-go" orders and even had one charge me for the box to take my leftovers home in! Things are getting really tight all over. Sis & I w/ discussing. She asked for catsup in McD's at WalMart. They gave her a drink lid with catsup poured on it! At McD's here, if you ask for catsup, they hand you ONE packet for a large order of fries and 1 napkin for an entire order of several items! , Susan, LA 6949 Anniversary (3/3/2014 9:42:12 AM): OK, I am going to do this now before I forget, and I won't be on the computer on the 14th or 15th. We are celebrating our 20th anniversary on the 15th. We got married at the age of 21 (me) and 20 (Jamie). It was almost to the 1 year anniversary of when we started dating. 3 days after we got married, he shipped of for Anchorage without me. I waited 3 months for the orders for me as a dependent, and then it was off I go. I cried, Mom & dad cried as I said goodbye (I was the baby) at the airport terminal. It was scary - first time I had ever been on a plane. Still don't like them. 9 hours later, I saw him at the airport. I knew I was "home". We have gone through a lot, never asking either of our parents or families for anything. Making our way was hard, but so very much worth it. We lost 2 babies in Anchorage, and I had a cancer scare (turned out to be benign) then moved to Japan. We went though a lot there, mostly not good. We found out we couldn't have children, then living so much farther away. I lost my grandmother when we were there, she was like my mother to me. We couldn't fly home for the funeral. Then we moved to TX. What can I say? We have been here 8 years, gone through even more bad times. Hubby was deployed 6 times over seas, not including in states deployment. His PTSD, my health problems getting worse, the loneliness, the loss of furbaby Tom. My boss passing of cancer at 48, my parent's health, the loss of my uncle who was like a father, it just seemed that everything got worse once we moved out here. His official retirement date was the 1st. I am in the spot now where I am going to make a difficult decision at my employment. But, through all of this, there were good times. My opening up to see through the "veil" and communicate with our loved ones that had passed, our finding our way to furbabies Minnie Me and Holly, being able to go home for Christmas most years, being there when his brother got married, and now their baby girl, being able to see my niece's baby girl. After 20 years of good and bad, I can still look at Jamie and know I am home, no matter where I go, as long as it is with him. After 20 years, I can honestly say I love him more each day, if that is even possible., Charlotte W TX 6951 Amazing Race - spoiler (3/3/2014 9:52:23 AM): Okay if you taped the show to watch later.... don't read this post. ! ! ! We thought it was sad when the Kentucky people went home last night. And it was sooooo touching when everyone stayed at the finish line to tell them by. I thought that was very sportsmanship. No I do not miss the twins (that went home last week) And yes we think that if they do another Amazing Race All Star show that the Kentucky guys will be asked back. I did go online and check out the guy left behind. He is okay and doing quite well now. Sad We love this show. Mainly because of the way it can change. Be in first place and then opps... now you are close to the bottom. Like the Cowboys this week. and Rachel just annoys me.... I kinda like her but it was funny when her husband said well she hasn't cried yet. Wasn't it a hoot that the Kentucky guy got there late at the 'lets put the toy truck together" and yet he was the first one done. Oh... and how those country singers literally begged for that express pass. Hubby thinks that as smart on the cowboys part because the country singers are NO threat at all. Yet but still.... , Patti/IN 6957 Saving Star question (3/3/2014 10:04:22 AM): I have $5.00 in my account. I don't have a paypal account.

This is what they do, and like the one girl said, you show cleavage you get what you want. So true. I wish they would have given the pass to the Kentucky Guy. I miss how and where did the girl that worked with the country guy come from? I missed it last week. And what was wrong with the Kentucky Guy that he had to drop out?

I didn't realize how easy it was and I believe much cheaper too!, Mindy, MD 6984 Any word on (3/3/2014 1:22:13 PM): Lauri in MN? Last I heard she was just going to start a new job., Just wondering in MI 6992 Susan, LA (3/3/2014 1:36:21 PM): Bumped up...for years, I would say 1 cream when I ordered coffee at the drive thru & would always try to be given 4 or 5. Four or five, really?? It is a senior size to boot. Why does anyone think the average person would want that many? Then they aren't always receptive to taking back the extra. But your posts reminds me of the crazy story I read this weekend. It happen in CA, of FL, forget which but crazy stories seem to be based in those 2 states (sorry FL & CA people). A man ordered a quarter pounder & was given 1 napkin. He went back to get more & the manager, or assistant-manager, said no he had already recd a napkin for his order. He might of copped an attitude, but claims the manager mumbled something he could not understand except for the words "you people". Funny how he could only pick up on those 2 words. So he says he wrote to the general manager of Mc D saying the manager was a bigot & they apologized & offered him free food. He turned it down. He hired an attorney & wants $1.5M because he is SO upset & down that he no longer can work (would like to see his work history for last 10 yrs). Customer is black & Mc D manager is Mexican-American. I hope they throw it out of court. It sounds so crazy to me. I think over the course of a year, I might set foot in 4 or 5 different Mc D's & all of them have napkins out for a person to help themselves to, apparently this is the exception. , SMH 6993 Ebay/Excedrin (3/3/2014 1:42:55 PM): I was just looking to put a few things up on ebay and I was looking at what the price of Excedrin was going for.

So, I got rid of my lunch meat turkey, my red potatoes, canned green beans. In addition, I would be adding my homemade garlic croutons (which soaked up a lot of butter). I may made banana muffins to use up my banana and then send them in a care package this weekend. What did you make for dinner?, Mindy, MD 7015 gel packet for books in boxes (3/3/2014 5:05:27 PM): Hi folks. I am going to be needing to keep books in boxes (storage) for up to 1 yr. It's important for me that they stay mold-free and in good shape while in storage. The plan is to mail them out to my new address once that happens. Would using Silica Gel packets be a good idea ? Is ONE Big gel packet better than TWO small ones? Or can I just pack them without any of that? Thanks for Any/all advice. , arlene FL 7019 Fitbit friends?

I pray that this trip will be peaceful and healing. Please don't give RefundCents a second thought while you are gone. I know all of us will carry on for you.

I am tired of always feeling like we are making the wrong decision (whether it is big or small) - even though I know we aren't.

Sure does NOT make me want to run out and buy Halo's!!! Okay, the Geico pig on vacation ...

We plan to adopt a kitten soon. Since we've only had a male cat, we wondered if experienced owners have advice about adopting a male or female. Our children are all teens; it will be an indoor only cat. We have a sweet dog. We're wondering if one sex has greater longevity, better temperament, fewer health issues, etc. Our last cat was an absolute sweetheart and we miss him terribly. But we are looking forward to a new cat to love. Any advice would be appreciated.

I've had it for years and didn't like the newest update. I searched the net and found an older version and installed it. There was something, I think it was called "Backup" that came with it on a limited time. I didn't activate it and figured it would just go away on its own.
Nope, it didn't. Then, I started having all sorts of popups every time I got on the net. I'm not positive which program finally picked up on it and I was able to get instructions on how to get rid of it. After I got rid of it, presto!! No more popups! I have malwarebytes and avg free version but I don't think either one of them picked up on it. I truly think it was housecall that finally caught it.
I'm sorry I can't be more specific but thought I would just throw this out there. Just in case you haven't tried it, you could go to Google, type in "free malicious spyware removal tool" and scroll down a little ways and it will say "free online virus scan". It will also find those nasty spyware too...HTH...As always..., Marian/MO7193 re: posting # 77173 (3/5/2014 5:49:56 PM): Social Security Medicare card...what I did was to copy my Medicare card; black out the last four digits of SSN ON THE COPY and then laminated it.

Today I answered my phone and "Eric" with an accent came on the line and I asked him to put me on the do not call list. He went on about how I can lower my credit card interest and I said I do not have a credit card. Then he went on how I can lower my mortgage and again I said I do not have a mortgage. I said I do not owe anyone money and all my bills are paid up, my home is mine (he interrupted and said no, your landlord gave us your number). I said I own a home, not a condo or apartment and I do not have a landlord, etc. He just would not give it up and insisted I did have a landlord and I owed money. I finally said put me on your do not call list and if you call again, there will be problems. These idiots lie so well and I didn't give in. Now I need to know more info about this company so if they keep calling, which I am sure they will, I can take them to small claims court.

My neighbor usually gets a bill for around $250/month, but her last bill was $800. Some of the companies do not generate electricity but are brokers that buy electricity from generating companies and offer variable rates. February temperatures were so low that the electric demand peaked out and the brokers had to search far and wide to buy the power, so the rates skyrocketed. I was lucky, because my broker did not raise rates, which I lock in once a month. , Bob, PA 7273 Bad Traders List?

Back in, probably, the 1980's there was a McDonald's commercial about a big brother and a little sister and the song in the background was "little baby sister of mine". It showed the brother pushing his littler sister in a swing and then the song goes on to "...turned around and found a homecoming queen". I was just a young girl, maybe teen, when it came on and it would choke me up. Any old commercials that choke you up?, Sandy B.,MO 7300 manicures (3/7/2014 9:35:40 PM): I watched 2020 tonight & now I think I might never go for another mani pedi ever.

It has been about 5 weeks since diagnosis of bone cancer, and their original estimate was around 2 months. Our fear is of a fracture of the weak leg. I still take him for daily walks which he loves! Tonight he got a burst of energy and was running around the yard like he used to. It was awesome to see him like his old self, but scary due to the fracture risk. I wrote a thank you last night to the person we got him from - an acquaintance that I haven't seen in many years. I wanted her and her family to know how much we have loved Master and how thankful we are that they gave us such a gift. Like CB, it will be a hard loss, but only because of the great love., Lisa, OH 7339 Whatever happened to... (3/8/2014 6:15:12 PM): Whatever happened to Cara in Tx?

They tell you the price and you get a $10 coupon off any $50 shoe order. We said no thank you, as we do not want cookies in the house. Then they told us we could buy them to send to military. I said thank you. We went inside and shopped. Found a pair of shoes on sale for $45 and began to purchase at the register. The mothers of the girls send the kids over to repeat the same "talk" about buying the cookies. We again said no thank you and they said if you dont want the cookies you can mail them to the military. We again said Thank you we will keep it in mind. Seemed a bit over zealous in their sales pitch. Is this how they sell cookies in your area? The mothers were sitting at a banquet table right inside the door way to the shoe store., DEB CT 7376 One for the memory books (3/9/2014 4:36:49 PM): Sheila MacRae (Alice Cramden of the Honeymooners) has passed away.

I know how to buy songs, put them in the computer and sync to the ipod shuffle gen 4. DH is enjoying very much during medical appts. As you an probably tell, I am not very computer literate. Anyway, my question is, how do I charge the ipod when I am not near a computer? Going away for a month, won't have access to the internet by computer or laptop, other than a kindle fire. I will re-charge the kindle fire on a wall adapter thing, with no problem. I looked at best buy and amazon.com and still can't figure it out. Is my best bet to go to a best buy b/m store and bring the ipod shuffle gen 4 and the cord thing, and show to a salesman and just say " what do I need to buy, a wall adapter or a battery charger?". I have heard that the wall adapter takes 14 hrs to recharge, which is a long time and that the battery charger thing is faster but more expensive. I have amazon monies accumulated (thanks swagbucks!, and I have a couple of best buy gift cards that I can use to defray costs. I know that this ipod shuffle gen 4 is no longer made and I'm hesitant to pay for a used whatever, when I can buy a new whatever and know that it won't quit on us, suggestions? Bob? I put this on OT because I'm not sure it's really a money saving thing, it's more a Help! thing.

I have been looking at the Whirlpool, Maytag and Kenmore. Any advantages to either brand? I know what I want (since I will be using it the most), but I don't want to get railroaded in pricing. From what I have seen, Whirlpool is cheaper, and LG (which I would love) is the most expensive. I want something that is going to last without a lot of problems. We are wanting a 3 door fridge, a dishwasher, and a double oven smooth surface self cleaning range. TIA! BTW ~ We are looking at laminate flooring.
