Bullying (11/6/2014 5:58:17 AM):  I saw where another kid planned on doing a shooting at his school, in Maryland I think. This came about from years of being bullied. I don't know the whole story but this has got to stop. Did no adult listen to this kid or do anything to protect him? I feel sorry for the kid that he felt his only choice to stop it would be to shot the aggressor. Which only ends with more innocent people being hurt & the victim himself usually ends up no longer being the victim. My DS went through this with a bully at his work. I begged & pleaded with his work to take care of it before it got out of control. There response was "they couldn't be watching the bully all the time" I told my son not to get into a fight with him since DS was 18 & could possible go to jail. It ended up that my DS threatened the bully. Of course the supervisor heard that. DS ended up having a nervous breakdown & spent a month in the hospital. Now he is on medication & he has changed so much from this. I had children's services called on me for being a unfit parent. This is just a small portion of all the things that have happened because of someone not taking care of the issue in the first place. And now DS is no longer considered the victim.,  cathy oh

9507 son left for Boot camp today (11/6/2014 10:18:05 AM):  We sent my son son off for Navy boot camp this morning. We sure will miss him! But this is what you raise your children to do... go off on their own and make their own life. Happy and sad all at the same time. Once I get his address I will post if anyone cares to write him. He will be at boot camp for his 19th birthday this Sunday the 9th, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. Anchors Aweigh!,  Doreen,MI

9511 From Debbie, OR (11/6/2014 11:19:16 AM):  I know this is a day late for an update, but I did start the treatment again yesterday. My feet were still in not-so-good shape, but I didn't want to delay the treatment. Waiting to hear from the Dr. as he thinks the Chemo has thrown me into menopause. Ack!,  Debbie, OR

9521 poll - do you get online statements (11/6/2014 12:51:32 PM):  I pay our credit cards online, but I still get the paper statements. I started asking myself 'why' (when I was shredding a bunch of old statements). Then I realized that DH would know how to get a hold of the credit card companies if something happened to me, but wouldn't if I only got online statements. So, am I crazy OR how do you make sure family members know what to do?,  Heather, NV

9537 Happy - found object (11/6/2014 4:24:06 PM):  I was supposed to drop off a jewelry bag (with the fixed necklace) to DD. Well, I couldn't find it when I got to her house and for the last (almost) two weeks (searched the car multiple times, rechecking my luggage, etc). I just decided to pull everything out of my backpack (even though I had checked it multiple times) and I found it in the tiny front pocket. I had somehow crammed it in there. Happy Dance! It felt so good to send her the text that I found it. This time it is in a different bag (I have multiple items for her) so I won't lose it before I give it to her.,  Heather, NV

9539 Sandys surgery (11/6/2014 4:45:39 PM):  This is Rodney giving an update on Sandy. Surgery went well and didn't last as long as the doctors expected. Sandy is home and resting and begins therapy tomorrow and has 3 adult males and a bossy little girl (our granddaughter Myia) to take care of her so she is in good hands. I'm sure you will hear from her soon. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.,  Rodney, Missouri

9540 Thank you idea (11/6/2014 5:05:21 PM):  I wanted to do this idea last year but hesitated. I'm almost to the point of doing this idea, but I'm still stalling. Since I moved to DC, I have really become very grateful for what I have, people who have helped me, etc. It was a hard transition but two years later, things are nice and calm. I was thinking about 4-5 key women who have helped me at work and in my personal life get to where I am today (which means used to living in DC). I thought about arranging an after-work dinner (that would work around their commute schedules) as a thank you. None of them know each other. I thought it would be a good way to network and just to show my gratitude. Of course, it's going to be a couple of dollars, but I'm not worried about that. I'm concerned that it appears that I'm 'buying' their relationship with me. Actually, it's a replacement for the 'Friendship' parties I used to have in PA. What do you think of this idea? ,  Mindy, MD

9603 Robin Williams-coroner's report (11/7/2014 3:51:45 PM):  The coroner's report on death of Robin Williams has been made public. Death has been ruled suicide. Alcohol and illegal drugs were not involved. Prescription drugs were found in "therapeutic concentrations." The report also states that he was suffering from paranoia. His wife reported that the evening before he died, he placed several watches in a sock and brought them to a friend's house for safekeeping, an indication of paranoia. While it is still terribly sad, I am glad to know that he was still clean and sober and that no illegal drugs or alcohol were found. He was battling depression, which could have made him relapse into his addictions. So glad to hear that at least things went well for him there. ,  Susan, LA

9610 Made me howl! (11/7/2014 7:19:50 PM):  This guy is leaving a voicemail for his boss when he witnesses a minor traffic accident. Not fake, it actually happened. In late February, several stations broadcast interviews with a man named Michael Childs, who said that he was the one who left the voicemail message, that the clip was genuine, and that the accident described took place about six years ago in Athens , Texas , while he was working as a construction manager for Jack in the Box. The visual picture this guy paints and his laugh are contagious. Laughing is so good for us. I hope this gives you a really good laugh., PA

9623 Humor/Ole and Sven (11/8/2014 9:50:31 AM):  Ole and Sven, both drunk, die in a snowmobiling accident and go to Hell.
The Devil observes that they are really enjoying themselves. He says to them “Doesn't the heat and smoke bother you?”
Ole replies, “Vell, ya know, ve're from nordern Minnesooota, da land of snow an ice, an ve're yust happy fer a chance ta varm up a little bit, ya know.”
The devil decides that these two aren't miserable enough and turns up the heat even more. When he returns to the room of the two guys from Minnesota the devil finds them in light jackets and hats, grilling Walleye and drinking beer. The devil is astonished and exclaims, “Everyone down here is in misery and you two seem to be enjoying yourselves!”
Sven replies, “Vell, ya know, ve don't git too much varm veather up dere at da Falls so ve've yust got ta haff a fish fry vhen da veather's dis nice.”
The devil is absolutely furious. He can hardly see straight. Finally he comes up with the answer. The two guys love the heat because they have been cold all their lives. The devil decides to turn all the heat off in Hell. The next morning, the temperature is 60 below zero, icicles are hanging everywhere and people are shivering so bad that they are unable to wail, moan or gnash their teeth. The devil smiles and heads for the room with Ole and Sven. He gets there and finds them back in their parkas, bomber hats and mittens. They are jumping up and down, cheering, yelling and screaming like mad men.
The devil is dumbfounded, “I don't understand, when I turn up the heat you're happy. Now its freezing cold and you're still happy. What is wrong with you two?” They both look at the devil in surprise and say, “Vell, don't ya know, if hell is froze over dat must mean da Vikings von da Super Bowl.” ,  Google Researcher

9626 Humor (11/8/2014 12:04:13 PM):  An 18 year old woman began looking for her first real job. She spent the afternoon filling out applications and left them to finish later in the day. Her application caught attention of her mother. Under "Previous Employment" she wrote "baby sitting". In answer to "Reason for Leaving" she wrote "Parents came home".,  Google Researcher

9631 Jeopardy contestant (11/8/2014 1:01:47 PM):  I'm watching Thursday's Jeopardy episode. Jeopardy contestants are supposed to be smart, right?? There was a young lady who is a PhD candidate (should indicate intelligence, but perhaps not a lot of common sense sometimes) and her blurb during the interview session was how her cab driver asked her on a date when he found out she was appearing on Jeopardy. She went with him, he bought her a praline and he let her move from the back to the front seat. Cute story, but....and I know these are filmed in advance, hasn't she been watching the news about the abductions??! Even if it was taped well in advance of the recent news stories, that hasn't been a smart thing to do for a very long time. Is it just me.....,  Susan, LA

9636 SBTV (11/8/2014 2:33:13 PM):  Anyone else have this problem. Whenever I try & run SBTV on my ipad it does a few of them & then gets stuck. I am speaking of the mobile one that you click on the app. There is no restarting it. It sticks on a blank white or black page or on the verizon page. Only way to get it to do anything is to turn ipad off & try again 30-40 minutes later. Trying to build up points on SB but this is annoying.,  Vicki,Va

9637 Still good in the world (11/8/2014 3:17:49 PM):  There is still good in the world. Reading in today's paper about a woman who lost her wedding ring while handing out candy on Halloween. Meanwhile, a family in another neighborhood who had trick-or-treated in the lady's neighborhood, dumped their kids' bags and found a diamond ring. Google the story. Neat the way the parents turned the teaching moment into a mystery to solve to make it more fun for the kids. It really is a fantastic story. ,  Susan, LA

9648 front loader washer died? (11/8/2014 5:02:39 PM):  Well, I think our about 12 year old front loader Kenmore washer has died - makes this HORRIBLE noise as it is doing the final spin. DH pulled the plug on it and I removed everything and put a few items back in. Once it got back up to speed it made the same HORRIBLE noise. Think it is worth repairing?,  Heather, NV

9649 Amazon Echo (11/8/2014 5:48:44 PM):  Am I thinking right? If I buy the Amazon ECHO, Do I not have to pay for my internet connection being on 24 hours? Am thinking it would cost me a lot more in the long run. Does sound cool though.,  Mary, WI

9661 Cell Phone Information Needed (11/9/2014 8:13:44 AM):  My son has a samsung bright side phone and so does my husband. My son's phone was stolen and replaced early this spring. The phone is apparently out of warranty as they replace it with a refurbished phone and the screen keeps going white when trying to text. My husband's phone is the original and he has had no problems with it until recently-a different issue. We have basic plan with unlimited texting. I do not want to have to update our phones as our contract is going to go way up. We could have upgraded last april but didn't as we are trying to save money. DOES anyone have any IDEAS on how to get unlimited texting plan and not have to pay high phone rates? Clark Howard suggests Walmart's phone plan but I am hesitant to try as I don't know anyone that uses theirs? Any suggestions on where to buy a replacement phone just for him?,  Laurie,Ohio

9663 KMart (11/9/2014 8:24:47 AM):  Every year I get email coupons for my birthday from Sears and KMart. I just realized I only got the Sears one this time. I was wondering if KMart stopped sending them or if it was because the only KMart in my area closed a couple of months ago Did anyone get the KMart coupon? I would rather have the Sears ($10/$30) vs the KMart ones they sent me ($5/$40) ,  JudyB LA

Two, I plug it in every night, but it says it's not backed up, and then it says this happens when it's plugged in, can't have it both ways!! ,  CB OH

9675 Amazon Prime Movies (11/9/2014 12:48:51 PM):  Suggestions for good FREE Amazon Prime movies? We bought Amazon Prime last March as I figured we'd be buying a lot from Amazon as we replaced things lost in the fire. In the old house we were able to get the local PBS station with an inside antenna, but for some reason we can't even get that now. We refuse to subscribe to cable as we don't watch that much TV anyway. I bought the new Amazon FireTV gizmo a couple of weeks ago, so we're using it to stream movies to the flatscreen TV I got at an estate sale. The problem is that the movies that are free with Prime are yuck for the most part, and the good movies are mostly pay for view. Even movies that are old are pay for view. My DH watched Frankenstein, made in the early 1990s, not realizing it was pay-for-view, and I got an email thanking us for the purchase at $3.99! Same with TV shows. You get the first episode free with Prime and have to pay for the rest. We're having trouble finding any good movies and TV shows that are free to watch. Suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!,  SharonTN

9678 HE washers- Do u Like? (11/9/2014 1:37:20 PM):  I have a new HE washer & dryer. Do any of you like these? Mine spins them out so good, that the clothes are half way dry it seems, and terribly wrinkled. It doesn't use much water at all, and I think it needs more water to wash and get clothes clean. The clothes seem to come out clean. But evn after dried for awhile they are still pretty wrinkled.,  Not sur about new washer

9688 Cutting back (11/9/2014 3:14:15 PM):  A while back, we discussed small ways that businesses are cutting back in attempts to survive. I saw a new one today. Went to eat BBQ and the server brought a glass of tea to the table across from me, but what I saw next really concerned me. He poured the tea into the man's glass and I thought he would pour the remainder into the wife's glass but she didn't need topping off. He took the glass back to the "pitcher area". It was only about 1/4 of a glass left so I can't believe he didn't just leave it. I was concerned if the refill glass had touched the man's glass and then it would be passed on to someone else. I know that when servers refill glasses from the pitcher, often times they touch the lip of the pitcher to the glass so it's the same transferrence issue. Also, the cashier was drinking while she was checking people out. OK---no big deal. Right before she hands me my ticket, she reaches her hand into her glass for an ice cube to munch on. All I could think about was the portion of her drink that exits the straw back into her glass---all over her ice and my receipt. I know we'd all cringe if we knew all that goes on in a restaurant and if we want to eat somewhere that is clean to our satisfaction, guess we need to eat at home all the time. ,  Susan, LA

9692 A good book (11/9/2014 3:35:27 PM):  Hi, everyone -- A friend lent me a very good book, it's "The Gift of Years" by Joan Chittister. Originally published in hardback in 2008, it's in paperback now and costs $13.95 at bookstores. The book is beautifully written and deals with growing old gracefully. Each brief chapter (and there are 40) deals with a topic like ageism, adjustment, learning, memories, outreach, etc. I haven't finished it yet, and plan to return it and buy my own copy! ,  Alice Dodge, OR

9695 Appliance Girl (11/9/2014 4:54:11 PM):  Please don't think I am crazy. This is the model number of my GE top loader that is a year old GTWN2800DWW. Can you tell me if it is possible that the spin cycle is "out of control" I have had some bad balancing problems with this machine, that literally has started moving the washer around on the floor. My hubby has made sure it is now perfectly balanced, however I feel that when it is in spin cycle on any of the three wash cycles, whites, permanent press or colors it sounds like an airplane coming in for a landing. I don't remember it doing this when I first got it. I have never called them out for a service call as I didn't know how to prove this to them when they got to my house. I am getting ready to purchase a warranty for another year as it is about to end. Can you give me any advice if I am nuts over this?,  Laurie, Ohio

9699 Kenmore front loading washer (11/9/2014 5:00:11 PM):  Last night while it was spinning we heard a HORRIBLE noise (actually sounded like the drum was hitting the walls). Well, we just took off the back panel and found one of the shocks broken. So I just ordered a new set for $50 (will arrive on Friday). We watched the video on RepairClinic (where I ordered the parts) and it appears easy enough that we can do it. So, hopefully we have a working washing machine by next weekend. ,  Heather, NV

9722 Grand daughter comments (11/10/2014 7:18:08 AM):  Gosh, my boyfriend and I have been having so much fun with his grand daughter. After taking her out a few times, she is warming up and really enjoying herself. Yesterday, we took her to a children's museum and then to a playground where there is sand. She is an only child and we're realizing she really likes interaction with kids. It's obvious she doesn't want to go back home. It's just so interesting to see life through her eyes. I really appreciate this opportunity to take her out since I never had kids. Maybe now I'm realizing why grandparents really love their grandkids. At this stage in my life, I have the patience and calmness to be around little kids and really just to have fun with them. We usually are tired though, when she leaves.,  Mindy, MD

9734 Safety ignored (11/10/2014 9:16:20 AM):  Within the last month there have been three incidents with the Amish that are disturbing. 1. Three Amish brothers were driving a horse drawn wagon through a field picking pumpkins and loading them on the wagons. Their ages were 12, 10, and 2. The 2 year old fell off the wagon and his skull was crushed by the wagon wheel. He was taken to Hershey Medical Center. I think he survived. 2. A young teen aged Amish girl was driving a horse and a wagon on a highway and the horse crossed into oncoming traffic. A lady in a minivan hit the horse and was critically injured. The horse died. I have noticed that it is not uncommon to see a ten or twelve year old driving horses and wagon on a four lane highway. 3. Two Amish homes were entered in the middle of the night and teenaged girls were groped while in their beds. The Amish do not lock their doors or windows.

You would think that the Amish would take safety precautions after incidents like these, but they don't change anything. It is sad.,  Bob, PA

This afternoon, I got an e-message from George Easter saying I'd won a 3 month subscription to RC in a subscription contest. I'm fairly certain that this contest was the one that Sandy B. generously ran recently. I have no idea who might have nominated me. But I'm very humbled to think that I was worthy of the honor. Many thanks to all who post their good deal finds, & other information for the benefit of us RC'ers!,  Virginia Ann S VA

9760 Sears Info (11/10/2014 5:57:36 PM):  On the south side of Indianapolis - the Greenwood Park Mall. The Sears Store was looking bad. I haven't actually shopped in there in a long long time. But yes I do walk through there to get to the mall. It is easy parking outside sears. Well excuse me.... walked through Sears to get inside the mall yesterday and wow... I mean WOW . Somebody came in there and cleaned up that store. The store has taken a all new look. It looked good and might help with the sales. Of course I didn't shop there.... I just walked through there again to get to the shopping mall. But point being.... the Sears Department store on the south side of Indianapolis has changed for the better !@ ,  Patti/IN

9763 SB e-gc question: (11/10/2014 8:36:15 PM):  At one point, I knew how to do this, but I've forgotten and need help! I had enough points for a $50 Amazon card from Swagbucks, so I "cashed" it in. The last time I did that with a $50 card, they mailed it to me but this time, either they changed the options or I wasn't paying attention, or both. So now I have this Amazon e-gc and I can't remember how to "claim" it and get it into my Amazon account. Would someone please remind me? TIA.,  Jane, CA

9789 To Marion, CA (11/11/2014 12:23:00 PM):  Hi, Marion -- Thanks for your tip about ordering the book "The Gift of Years" from Target -- I'm looking into that. Checked at Costco yesterday, and they didn't have it -- since it's not a new best seller, I really didn't think they would. Barnes & Noble may stock it, but they usually are very expensive.,  Alice Dodge, OR

9792 Part time job (11/11/2014 12:48:34 PM):  I have a regular full time job that pays well. However, I'm hoping to retire around 57. I have been thinking about getting a fluffy part time job where I could just do manual work instead of running a cash register or have any serious responsibilities, etc. Today, I talked to a guy at Kmart who said they have people who just work a couple of hours/day and can work according to their schedule. I'm seriously considering this to save up more money and also to try a different kind of job. I've done my present job for 28 years and am looking to try something different. I am concerned, however, that I could be taking away this position from someone who actually needs it. Obviously, I wouldn't know that. I think the corporation would appreciate a diligent part time worker who will be there when they're supposed to and work efficiently. The only other drawbacks that I see is that it might increase my tax threshold. In addition, if I worked at night, I would be walking out to my car in the dark. Obviously, I've considered the other costs such as car maintenance, gas. I would also need to see how tired I get since I'm not used to being on my feet. What are your thoughts on this idea? Have you done something like this? Did it work out? ,  No name this time, USA

9793 candle warmer (11/11/2014 1:14:28 PM):  I have broken my daughter in law's candle warmer. Actually not the warmer itself, but the dish that holds the candle wax. THis is one of those electric types that have a light bulb that melts the wax. It is not a Scentsy. I am trying to find a replacement dish. It was a gift and my daughter in law does not know where it was purchased. Any ideas? Thanks,  Marge, MO

9797 Swagbucks Target GC (11/11/2014 1:17:28 PM):  I finally got a smartphone (still learning how to use it) & bought a Target $10. GC from Swagbucks. To anyone who has done this, please tell me how I go about using it at Target. Do I just show the cashier the email on the phone? Also, if I don't spend the whole $10. at once, how do I keep up with the balance? I'm a 20th century mind trying to keep up with the 21st !! TIA,  Barb M, NJ

9799 In search of ? (11/11/2014 1:23:51 PM):  I have had trouble finding a few things and maybe someone can help. 1. How to find and eradicate 'Cobs'. Every once in a while a cobweb will appear in the house. I have never seen a 'Cob' and cannot find a picture of one. 2. Dust bunnies show up every now and then. How can I find their parents so I can remove them from the house? 3. I'm looking for a device that will take an unwanted call telling me that this is my second and final notice to reduce my credit card debt. (I've only had a few thousand of these.) The device would automatically press'1' and, when they answered, a sound loud enough to rupture their ear drums would be sent to their phone.

If anyone comes up with answers, you might win a free roundtrip plane ticket! (Some restrictions may apply. Luggage will cost $100/checked bag.

9807 Ink Masters-amputee episode (11/11/2014 2:10:34 PM):  A woman from our sister church will be on Ink Masters tonight at 9 p.m. and midnight Central Time on Spike TV. She is the one who was in an accident 2 years ago and lost both legs. She recently had her 40-something surgery and developed staph infection after that. Not sure when this was taped, but I'm sure it was well before this last surgery and complication b/c she was just discharged from the hospital about 2 weeks ago. I don't usually watch reality TV except for Dancing with the Stars and Swamp People (b/c it's local) but I'll watch this episode. Also, another La. family will have a show next week on A & E. Forgot what it's called but it's about the Busbice family (my sis and I went to school with 2 of the guys, who I guess w/b the dad and uncle of the "stars"). They own a company that sells wilderness stuff. They invented some kind of deer feeder or something. You can tell I really know a lot about hunting and wilderness. ,  Susan, LA

9813 Coke BETA (11/11/2014 2:35:19 PM):  Really surprised that Coke offered double points entered through BETA this week, considering the program is supposed to end in December (hope they extend). I've been marking my calendar to enter codes on Saturday, just in case they offer doubles during the week, so I won't use up my weekly limit before they make the offer. Don't have a lot of Diet and Zero so I saved those and used my regular Coke codes. Seems like they offer doubles on Diet and Zero more often so I'll save since I don't have too many. ,  Susan, LA

9814 My Veteran's Day (11/11/2014 3:05:55 PM):  I'm the only veteran in my family and despite having a family that votes ultra-conservatively, only one person bothered to say "Thank you" today for my military service. I ate my free burger/fries at Applebees foe lunch and then shopped at Publix and received 10% off. The better news had nothing to do with the holiday- it was a real live job offer to teach at a university. It's about time.,  William M M, FL

9829 A soldier (11/11/2014 4:37:53 PM):  This is what my cousin Paul posted on facebook after receiving a very moving letter from his eight year old granddaughter thanking him for being a hero in Vietnam, Korea, and Germany. Paul is a retired Lt. Colonel from the US Army who saw lots of combat in Vietnam.

This is a heartfelt gift from my sweet, loving granddaughter. Once I think I have my voice somewhat under control I will give her a hug of thanks and explain that the word "hero" is used far too often in today's society. I'll explain to her that there truly are military heroes but that most of them were never able to come home and rejoin their families. There is absolutely no way that I can claim such a title and I am more than a little embarrassed whenever someone sees the "fruit salad" on my Army blouse and automatically thinks "hero". The military does a good job of recognizing service members for having been involved in various hostilities and humanitarian efforts. We sometimes call these awards "I was there medals." Peacetime service over time also routinely garners various service medals and officers seem to always get a disproportionate share. I have my heroes and most did not return home alive; others were taken prisoners of war and many are still missing in action. Those are the heroes.

Note: Paul's wife Betty has recently published a book named 'Imperfect Wings'. It is not about wars, but she tried for years to write something that would appeal to book readers.,  Bob, PA

9841 To Marion, CA (11/11/2014 6:41:41 PM):  Hello, again! I meant to say Amazon in my note to you, (not Target). How nice that the book arrived so soon, and I hope you and your husband like it. It's almost like a reference book with all the brief chapters dealing with various aspects of aging. I think Amazon is the way to go.,  Alice Dodge, OR

9855 Izze (11/12/2014 5:20:28 AM):  Anyone bought a beverage by the name of Izze? I got a MyPoints offer this morning for 1,000 points for buying 2-4 packs & wondering if it is anything we would like. I got the Dasani sparking flavored water & no one liked that. That was a waste of 50 points from MCR, Izze I need to actually use cash. If you like it, what flavors?,  to buy, or not to buy

9859 Quirky Word Processing problem (11/12/2014 6:01:18 AM):  Yesterday afternoon I had a quirky probem in my Word Processing program. I would accidentally misspell a word. When I noticed the misspelling & clicked on that word to correct it, a dark vertical line would highlight the letter & be blinking. I would delete that wrong letter only to have the remaining letters in the word close up ranks. When I would type in the correct letter, the next letter in the word disappeared from my monitor screen. it kept doing that until i came to the end of that particular paragraph. What was going on that i couldn't make it stop that nonsense? I was using Apache OpenOffice free Word Processing program. And I was using the OpenOffice Writer.,  Virginia Ann S VA

9862 Jobs (11/12/2014 7:17:18 AM):  Three years ago yesterday I retired from my job. I worked there 28 years and during that time I was offered 4 other jobs. Yesterday to my surprise I was offered a part time job from a company that did business with my former employer. It made my day that people I had dealt with during my employment still thought enough about me to offer me a job. I am 72 years old and lost my husband 6 months ago. I thanked him for the offer but I still have some unresolved things. Have a good day everyone.,  Betty, La

9863 Veterans (11/12/2014 7:23:55 AM):  Yesterday was a very emotional day for me. There is a memorial dedicated to deceased veterans in our community. Every year on Veteran's Day there is a ceremony to honor all the veterans who have died during the year. My husband and 4 other veterans were honored. Their names are subscribed on a panel of this memorial. I am so glad that this is done in our area. I think this should be done everywhere. If it wasn't for veterans, our country would not be home of the free.,  Betty, La

9873 Veterans Day Program (11/12/2014 9:06:10 AM):  Our school had a Veterans Day Program yesterday. I don't usually get to attend with my dh, but someone watched my class so I could go. The band and choir did a heart warming job. There was a slide show of relatives of students and faculty who have served, are serving and have gone on. Then afterwards the students were asked to go by the veterans and thank them for service. This really touched my dh because when he came back from Viet Nam there were no people welcoming the soldiers. Just in the last decade people see his Viet Nam cap and say welcome home soldier. There was a vet probably from the "Big One" yesterday who was dressed up very patriotically. I shook his hand and he said. "They aren't doing it right....we just need to go over and bomb 'em.,  Janice/Ok

9879 Didn't make it to final round :( (11/12/2014 9:54:21 AM):  The finalists for the Uncle Ben's contest have been announced.

It was still a fun experience, and I still subscribe to the theory that you can't win if you don't try! ,  Lisa, OH

9880 what am I doing wrong (11/12/2014 10:17:26 AM):  I got an email from Sears with a $10/$30 coupon. Problem is when I go to print it instead of the barcode I get an icon that looks like a picture with blue sky, white cloud and green hill. The right upper corner is turned down and there is a white diagonal slash in the lower right corner. A friend recently tried to send me a picture in an email and the same icon was there. Anyone know what the heck I am talking about and what to do about it?,  JudyB LA

9884 Apple product (11/12/2014 11:48:16 AM):  Someone on here, or CC, posted about still being in 20th century where smartphones are concerned. Well, I am too about most products. I overheard someone talking about a product made by Apple that costs around $100. From what I gather, it is for people to access more channels than ABC, CBS & NBC. To use it, you don't need internet, satellite or cable. Does anyone know what this product is & if it is true? Or maybe you can recommend a product, if something like this does exist. This I think would be a perfect Christmas gift for someone on my list that would be considered "working poor". They won't sign up for cable or internet because they realize it isn't a necessity. Is there such a thing where you can get more TV options without a cable bill? ,  Santa wannta be

9897 Jane CA/Wicked Good (11/12/2014 4:31:46 PM):  Jane or anyone else, have you ordered any of the LL Bean Wicked Good slippers in the past 6 months? I received the catalog with the $10 off cpn, and was planning to try the womens cork clogs. After reading the reviews of them and the scuffs, I am hesitant to order. Reviewers are saying the shearling packs down very quickly and does not wear like it did in the past. I hate to pay that much for slippers and have them not meet my expectations. I know Jane gave them glowing reviews some time ago. Just wondering if they are still worth trying?? Anyone?? Thanks! ,  Paula T. TN

9905 inground pool vinyl liner (11/12/2014 6:39:37 PM):  We had our 13 yr old inground pool vinyl liner replaced this summer by the same folks who did it earlier. Without our permission & unknown to us, they removed the protective foam padding from the pool walls because some customers had trouble with it. They used duct tape on the seams & the $2300 liner is now rubbing against the pool walls with no protection. To compensate for no foam, they ordered the depth of the pool corners to be 4" instead of 6 "smaller, so they don't fit flush with the wall, again unknown to us. Now, the edge of the pool (coping) has pulled away from the pool edge, I can see the seams of the pool walls through the liner, feel lumps & bumps in the wall, the pool skimmer faceplate is loose & I have major damage to the pool wall. They destroyed my pool & I have to pay to repair it. Legally they violated their contract which says any major repairs will be discussed. Does removing viable foam lining fall into this category? we've had a trouble free pool for 20 years, now we have these issues 5 months after a new liner installation. Help!,  Debbie AL

(The place doesn't take pets, so McGruff has to go to "camp" -- I don't think I know how to travel without him!) I'm sure I'll have wifi access, so I'll be lurking from time to time, but I don't know how much time I'll actually be on line. Good thoughts to all of you!,  Jane, CA

9917 My points (11/13/2014 4:38:52 AM):  Is anyone having a problem doing surveys? Lately, all I am able to do is the 5 points. it indicates the survey is not available.,  Joan B.

9921 A thought (11/13/2014 6:14:33 AM):  With Christmas items out prior to Halloween's passing at retailers, I would enjoy seeing this year's hype turned down a few notches. The black Friday hysteria snuffing out Thanksgiving day with the oh so important earlier and earlier opening times is sad. As savvy shoppers, we get deals and gifts all year along. Planning is the key rather then panic. Maybe we can make a start collectively here with a move to return to a simpler Christmas and holiday season and not have to constantly cave in to the shopping frenzy. ,  Faye

9927 Sailors Assaulted in Turkey (11/13/2014 8:40:48 AM):  CBS news report several sailors assaulted while docked in Istanbul, Turkey. They weren't in uniform; just on shore leave. They were pushed around; had items thrown at them that had orange paint in them and one sailor had a bag placed over his head. They were told they weren't wanted in Turkey. The sailors didn't fight back but went back the ship and the shore leave was canceled. This was over something that happened before when the Turkish had bags placed over their heads by ???,  Janice/Ok

9948 Christmas (11/13/2014 10:55:09 AM):  Not only am I not a fan of the earlier and earlier decorations and commercialism of the holiday season, but I am seeing less and less beautiful Christmas decor in the stores to buy. Hallmark has gone to the dogs as far as I am concerned. I used to get so many nice and cute items there, but now.... Pier One used to also have tons of things I would get, went yesterday and only found clearance items not even related to Christmas. What happened to the nice looking santas and reindeer?? Ornaments that are nicely colored with deep rich tones. Instead I see this imitation glass stuff that is of no interest to me. My husband started buying me a Santa every year but nice ones are few and far between now. SIGH...I miss the days of yester year,  CB OH

They also tack on a Thanksgiving day fee of over $2 for that one day, with drivel about how big the paper is. I guess it's convenient not to mention all of the extra income they get from the companies who PAY to have their ads in that edition! ,  Faye

9959 Winter (11/13/2014 1:09:32 PM):  Winter has arrived in La. Yesterday was nasty. Highs in upper 40's, but a cold drizzle most of the day. Today is only in mid-40's and s/b mid to upper 20's tonight. I brought in most of my tender plants last night. Put them in the garage and some are in laundry room. Put the others that are more hardy like cilantro in laundry room this afternoon.

Well I got this idea to use one of those plastic hanging things that have the clear pockets on them. Also there was a hook on my wall very close to my dresser mirror.

9982 Bob (11/13/2014 6:34:22 PM):  I might have an answer to your 3 questions a few days ago... Cobs. No pun intended but, webs can be found on the web. There is a tool found for immediate eradication. This tool is called a dust mop. Conveniently, this IS where the dust bunnies parents live. ( I saw em.) This tool I speak of is handy for all of your issues you mentioned. This dust mop tool will... Make "cobs" disappear in an instant. Kill the parents of the dust bunnies. This is in hopes they have not moved in relatives that can reproduce. If so, start over. When solicitation calls arrive through your electronic device, your personal phone, the above tool can be used if you have superior marksmanship. One swing should do it. This might be costly. If the representative is local, go to the source. Only a little bit of gas. Electronics are expensive. When you get a "free" trip, take this tool with you. This is where the pay off is. Be sure to have all of the unsolicited calls address in your route. Have a plan, make a map if needed. Take care of each along your journey then write a book. The world would love to see the progress and you could make some income that could replace your electronics if you chose option A. The clerk that charges $100 for luggage check will be intimidated thus either giving you free passage or a different one star location. Use that choice wisely. If you pass, and can keep your tool for the time share location. You can handle 2 hours. If it exceeds that, excuse yourself to the restroom and obtain your "tool". Or invest in headphones. ,  Ann

9987 Cookies for church (11/13/2014 7:23:02 PM):  You may remember a few weeks ago, I posted about our church meeting where we were all asked to provide "no store bought cookies". I got mine from the really nice bakery, put them on my own tray and I didn't hear anyone mention the fact that they may not have been homemade. I may hear it through the grapevine later that someone brought something that they didn't make. I thought it was great that even our 94 yr. old took enough interest to have his caregiver bake some cookies so that he could participate. Due to the cold temps and night meeting, we had a poor turnout so there was a ton left over. Last time it was on Sunday afternoon. Lots of congregations are older and their members don't drive after dark. When you have a small church providing refreshments, there's not much variety so we had a lot of chocolate chip cookies. ,  Susan, LA

9994 home from Mom's (11/13/2014 8:20:20 PM):  It was a good trip. a) We found Mom's old trust less the signature page (40 minutes before we had the appointment with the attorney) and the attorney was able to get the old files (so now I have the complete old trust with the signature page). b) The attorney got her to agree to update the trust. He also got her to agree to a Power of Attorney (so I can pay her bills if she can't) and a Health Advocate (which she first said No to since 'she is so healthy', but then he said she could get in an accident and then she agreed). So, we go back at the end of December to sign all the papers. Oh, and mom's short-term memory was really good. I can tell she has been drinking at least one Ensure every day so I left her with about 50 of them (besides food).,  Heather, NV

A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.
The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"
"No. I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.
"Will you spend this on green fees at a golf course instead of food?" the man asked.
"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20 years!"
"Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."
The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that?”
The man replied, "That's okay. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking and golf.",  Google Researcher

0017 Football (11/14/2014 10:55:14 AM):  Our teams was 8-0; we played for districts against at team that was 8-0. We haven't beaten them in 25 years. There was a lot of hype about the game. Fireworks, large crowds expected, seats and parking spaces were saved earlier in the day. They beat us 40-0. We won in sportsmanship. The fans and players tore down signs as they came thru town and held them up in the stands during the game. They were hitting players in the face masks and the refs weren't calling penalties and throwing up the handkerchiefs often. Our boys never gave up. Our coach talked with the refs to no avail. The players cursed our boys. Our coach does not allow that. Our team is very good. Of course, I am prejudice. We are playing a team tonight that is 5-5. I hope our boys come in strong like they have the other 8 games. I miss Tanner playing. His brother is on JV team but he is one of the 5 freshmen that get to suit out with the varsity.,  Janice/Ok

We love to watch Barefoot Contessa and her recipe calls for a whole chicken. That seems like such a waste to me. She never says anything about using the chicken after she makes the stock and I assumed she just tosses it? We make little bits at a time when we buy Rotisserie chicken. We pull it off the bones and throw the skin, that we don't eat, and the bones in a pot with celery, onion, carrots and seasonings. If you do have a great homemade stock and a secondary recipe using the chicken please let me know. TIA,  Sandy B., MO

0094 incredible (11/15/2014 2:56:04 PM):  TEXAS CITY, TX (AP) — A TX woman whose 4 pit bulls entered her neighbors' yard through a hole in the fence and killed their 10-year-old beagle is suing them for $1 million. Emerald White says in her lawsuit filed this week in Galveston County district court that she was "seriously injured" on Oct. 27 trying to stop the attack and retrieve her dogs. She says she suffered "multiple serious bite and scratch-type injuries" and accuses her neighbors of failing to securely confine and restrict their dog, Bailey. White also contends she's feeling "conscious pain and suffering and now suffers also from fear, anxiety and trepidation." I think she must be related to the attorney, or there is 1 so desperate to say he has a client that he/she took this case. The beagle owner said he would not sue because it doesn't bring his dog back. I think the court should make Emerald pay the attorney fees this guy incurs from her stupid lawsuit. ,  SMH

The recipe was from an Argo cornstarch paper box. I went to Food Lion and looked at square plastic Argo container and the recipe is not there only gravy and something else. I ended up buying Jello pudding and pie filling. Well, dumb me, finally looked on the internet and found the recipe. One thing I had never seen nor done was add 1 t. cornstarch to the mergingue.

0156 meringue (11/16/2014 9:54:41 PM):  Cream of tartar, white vinegar or lemon juice can all be used to stabilize a meringue.
Add 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tartar per egg white to the unbeaten egg whites. (If you're using a copper bowl to beat your meringue, don't add any acid: it can react with the copper and discolor the egg foam.)
Whip to medium-soft peaks. Beat in 2 tablespoons granulated sugar per egg white. Continue to beat until egg whites are glossy and hold a firm peak.
Adding sugar early in the beating process results in a firmer, finer-textured meringue.,  Google Researcher

We control the heat from door to door yet who can calm the snarl of the North Wind's roar? And when you are sweltering on a humid day can you coax the Breeze to come your way?

I guess I will be focusing mostly on homemade gifts, stocking stuffers, etc. I usually "adopt" gift tags off a Christmas tree at a store and donate toys, but this year I know of a family in pretty dire straights - so I'm playing "Santa" and making some crazy quilts for the young daughters, and shopping for some simple flannel sheets.

Driving ban is in effect as the county is in the state of emergency. At least we are safe and warm. Lancaster is just east of Buffalo, NY.

0270 Lowes (11/18/2014 3:17:53 PM):  In October my mother and I went to Lowes to look at stoves. I had the measurement of her stove with me. The employee said that it was an apartment sized stove. We didn't buy any at that time. Nov 4th we went back to Lowes and the lady was there and told a guy we needed an apartment stove and she remembered us. While waiting on the guy to do the paperwork I took moms cane and measured the stoves on display. Got to moms and found she has a regular sized stove and not a smaller one. I called Lowes and told the guy we needed a regular sized stove, not apartment sized. He said we would need to come back to get the check mom wrote and then write another for the difference in price. I went back on my own and spent an hour in the store waiting on the guy to help me. I was not happy having to go back and redo everything and I contacted Lowes and was offered a 10% rebate once the check clears. We were told the stove would be delivered by Nov 21. I got a call last week saying they have the stove but don't have anyone to install it. It is gas and we paid for installation. Today I had a message saying they can't get anyone to install the stove until Dec. Mom's oven does not work, only the top burners. Would you contact Lowes and complain again or what? There isn't any other stores in the area (this Lowes is 20 miles away) to get a stove from. I am so fed up with all this. ,  Mad at Lowes

So I took the coupon back to pharmacy and the guy at the desk was clueless. He asked the pharmacist about the coupon and was told since I was over 55 it was ok. He at first thought I had to get the shots today to get the points. I had him read the coupon again and he scanned it and my card and I did not get the 500 points. Not a lot of points but does anyone know how it was supposed to work?,  confused

0323 please (11/19/2014 8:07:23 AM):  Don't use Kingsville,TX Wal-Mart self checkout. .. half the machines don't work...we were checking out and the credit card reader messed up and the "nice" lady told us "it will be okay. You can checkout on another one, pay for it and leave. If you are double charged just come back and explain what happened and we will give you the money back." We asked "how will we prove this?" She said "not a problem". We then said "we don't have a do we prove it?" "There will be a double charge on your bank statement." "So we have to come back? Can't we fix it now?" "No. You can leave and come back." "WHAT?" "Don't raise your voice." "Well, you are not LISTENING to me...there is a problem and you won't help us." "I'm going to get the main manager as you don't understand." "Well, we have been here an hour and nobody competent have been able to help us."...well, another hour later we are leaving. ..with full credit...and then some. The girl who was the most rude went to the main manager and told her she was leaving as it was time for her to leave...he told no, I need to talk to you before you leave. (The manager had left us and watched the video of our time at the self checkout. ..he told my significant other that their worker was in the wrong. I could see on the video she was very condescending...could tell by her body posture. We are going to have training because she is a leader but not acting like one) it was nice to see the girl's smiley face disappear after the boss told her no on leaving...I saw her a few of minutes earlier (after she glanced at us) and she was all smiles...glad she was worried about something...maybe a greeter would be a good job for her, with some training ,  bob, tx

0368 Best Buy (11/19/2014 3:26:30 PM):  I did a return there today and something about it still makes me upset. I had the receipt, I had the credit card it was charged on, and this was only a $21.00 return. The cashier then asked me for my drivers license. I showed it to her, already questioning her why she needed it. She then asked me to remove it from my wallet. She then scanned it into their system. I asked her why she needed to do that and she said, that's just the rules, she couldn't tell me why. My husband was along and was starting to tell me to let it go, so I did. But it still bothers me why they needed that much personal info. At the time, i kept arguing the point that they didn't need that info when I bought it, what point does it make on the return. I then went on to tell her that now if they get hacked, they have the CC info p,us my drivers license number. Again, hubby begging me to let it go, but it still bothers me. I called Best Buy to complain, but manager has not called back.,  Karen-IA

We have not signed up yet as we have a other income-taking money from our IRA, a little flea market, etc but the insurance man said, they are not the IRS, they only put down the wage income which in our case is Social security. We do qualify for a small Obabama care subsidy for part of it, but I'm curious is this is what they went by for you or anyone else going thru it. I don't want to be shocked next year by a statement that says we have to pay the subsidy back. ,  Missouri

0506 Health Insurance Typo (11/21/2014 7:52:15 AM):  I made a big typo yesterday in my post about health insurance...forgot a zero. Let me recap. My DH & I are retired early. I am 63, he is 65. Last summer, our regular health insurance tripled so we went into Obamacare. My DH was still 64. We earn $35,000 a year in SS. We have no other income. We were eligible for a big subsidy with Obamacare and ended up getting crappy insurance for $400/month. Our copays are $2,500 each which we will NEVER meet so basically we pay $400+ just in case something horrible happens. Obamacare is totally income based. They do not care we own 2 homes and 3 cars and have investments. Everyone who needs health insurance should at least call and see what they offer you. Sure, we could have paid higher premiums and gotten better insurance but we decided that DH would get Medicare this month (and he did) and I would play roulette and hope nothing happens to me in the next 2 years. Even with me going to my internist, my eye doctor, my urologist, my GYN this past summer and my DH going to the internist and eye doctor, we are still ahead of the game.,  Joanie in NJ & FL

My husband now uses his dad's computer to access his account. So at least he was able to take down his ads of things that had sold. The only thing he could think of was that he did place two lumber ads. He separated out the lumber by sizes and quality. Oh well. Maybe we will be unblocked in a few weeks. Lisa, we tried your suggestion -- but it didn't work on our older computer. Thanks for trying though.,  Joanne VT

0545 Happy Thanksgiving (11/22/2014 11:28:46 AM):  It is hard to believe it is already turkey time but it is. Just got home from venturing to the store for all the ingredients needed to complete dinner on Friday. We actually have Thanksgiving on Friday since son and DIL spend Thursday with her side. I bake on Thursday so it all works out good. Once again I am reaching out for advice. DH is fast approaching retirement and OH is no longer going to be the place to be in the winter. We are leaning towards the Carolina's, more inland not on the beach so those of you who live in North or South Carolina any advice? We need to even keep in mind medical facilities since I seem to have a tendency to get sick with one thing or another. If you prefer to email please do at,  Chris, OH

0547 A shame (11/22/2014 12:04:29 PM):  I heard a radio commercial the other day that really annoyed me.It's sad really. They taked about Thanksgiving is really "Thanksgetting" for their store. I don't even remember what store it was. I think it was local but not sure.I hope I hear it again so I can write them a note about how tacky that is. I hope the advertising backfires on them and they learn a lesson.,  Sue P., CT

0550 Christmas Card Exchange (11/22/2014 1:02:26 PM):  Thanks for all the emails. It's going to be a big year for Christmas cards! I've sent everyone confirmation emails that either I got your address and it verified just fine or that I need more info. If you've emailed me and haven't received anything from me yet please email me again. Thanks to all.,  Sandy B., MO

0564 Need Advise (11/22/2014 4:36:13 PM):  I 'm not going to use my name time. I don't want to hear how bad I am at leading ,organizing things, I feel down enough already. I just need constructive advise. I am the President of a local club -I won't say what kind but we do meet weekly. I can't get a few of my officers to do anything, no follow-up. My public relations guy was supposed to set up our club Christmas party, he decides we should include other clubs in a "come & go" party. The club officers and I decided on my house for the location-I don't mind as my home is big enough and I enjoy the decorating etc. Long story short the party is supposed to be in 2 weeks from now, no one has heard anything from him on his plans. I e-mailed him yesterday with no reply. The only announcement of the party was two weeks ago at the end of our meeting he told everyone that we were planning a Christmas get together with details to follow. So now what should I do? Do I assume nothing has been done and plan to just have snacks at out last meeting before Christmas? I know this sounds so silly and trivial ,I have been stressed the last few weeks so maybe that I why I'm so frustrated. I am just disappointed and annoyed about this whole thing. ,  Stressed Out

0565 What is it? (11/22/2014 4:38:26 PM):  Someone put on my door with no note a big round object. It is about the size of a softball and has a reddish skin. I thought it was a red onion but it didn't smell like an onion. I don't eat or buy onions, but I kinda think I know what an onion looks like. However, there could be different kinds with which I'm not familiar. It appears to have a short knob on the top that looks like it might be a stem, but doesn't appear to have been cut off of anything. I live in Florida. I don't know if it could be something native from here, but this lady must have thought I would know what to do with it. Help.,  Just a dummy
