9954 grill cleaner (8/13/2015 12:49:56 PM):  I was in BB&B today and in the clearance section they had an automatic grill cleaning robot! Never heard of that before Even on clearance it was $89.99 (save $30) think I will pass,  JudyB LA

9958 Subway (8/13/2015 1:49:59 PM):  I was in Subway last week and ordering my sub and the gentleman behind me ordered a foot-long meatball sub. And he told me the reason that he orders the meatball sub with extra sauce is he takes the meatballs and sauce off when he gets home and put some over pasta. I thought that was a little strange since I think most places you can probably buy premade meatballs for a few dollars and a jar sauce for about two bucks and have the same thing. I almost offered to make him whole batch and divided up! ,  Carla B, OH

9961 Suave Lux Products & Ratings (8/13/2015 1:31:27 PM):  I wondered if others have had a chance to try Suave Lux Hair Products products ? I love the NEW Lotion in the GOLD bottle it is by far the best !!!! I have never been a Suave fan except the lotion but read they were highly recommended the LUXE curling gel in the All Magazine plus there were some $2/1 coupons So I thought I'd try them I found them for $5 each - $2 = $3 each I tried mousse and gel for curly hair due to the ratings for soft shiny frizz free curls I tried both a week and in my experience did not like either after a couple hours my normally shiny curls were dry and dull and felt tacky on humid days I normally use Herbal Essence Mousse curling or twisted types with coupons about $1 to $1.50 each depending on sale that leaves my hair soft shiny and no frizz never tacky I like Viddal Sasson shampoo with conditioner and Head and Shoulders smoothing (pink bottle) I am looking for a hair spray that is not sticky, tacky was a fan of Tresemme but it has changed and becomes yucky during humid weather any suggestions appreciated I read about some other products in All You I'd like to try but some are very expensive one was $19 can of Hair Spray at Sally's Beauty Supply but think I'll pass now that I've tried the Suave I also wanted to mention some people can leave reg conditioner on curly hair ... it leaves a film dulls my hair plus seems to make me develop dandruff (YUCK!) ,  Debra A, NC

9972 Starting school (8/13/2015 6:22:22 PM):  Our little granddaughter, Myia, started kindergarten today (pause to wipe away tears). The other day we were talking to her about school and Rodney asked her, "how many new friends are you going to make". Her reply was, "all of 'em". Thought it was so cute I'd share. Hope everyone is having a great day!,  Sandy B., MO

9973 Contact lens solution (8/13/2015 6:26:22 PM):  Do any of you use Optifresh saline solution? I bought some recently and have noticed how it leaves a sticky residue in the sink. The other solutions never did this before.,  Mindy, MD

9975 Freezing tomatoes? (8/13/2015 6:45:13 PM):  This is the first time in many years I have a surplus of tomatoes. Does anyone freeze them? If so, can you give me directions? I do not want to can them. Thanks!,  Lori OH

9986 Any ideas? (8/14/2015 6:06:40 AM):  I received an email this morning from the homeowner's association president. Our neighborhood is huge and next to the elementary and high schools. This is a residential area, no stores, gas stations, nothing close by. School started this week and the principal and staff have been arriving between 5 and 6 a.m. More than once they arrive to find a group of people on the roof. They get away before they can be questioned. They are smoking too which raises concerns about a fire starting. What are they up too? Any ideas? If they are kids wanting to smoke and whatever there are miles of woods around here that they could go to to sneak around. Any ideas?,  Anna, AL

9993 Bob, PA (8/14/2015 9:08:41 AM):  A huge thanks for your help finding me a shooting range in PA. Hubby had a great time/experience at the Trop Gun Shop in Elizabethtown! Happily it was BOGO day, so I was able to also try my hand at shooting a pistol. Something I never expected to do in my life. The staff there is extremely professional and it was a wonderful experience for him! So thank you so much for your help. Got home from Lancaster yesterday. Now to process all the produce we brought home! ,  Julie in Mass

9998 Auto correct!!! (8/14/2015 9:27:15 AM):  I hate it. I just updated my iPad and forgot to turn off autocorrect. Please forgive some of my posts. Today I noticed that "he" became "hen." I managed to catch "sandwich" which had become sane witch!!! Definitely need to remember to proofread everything at least 3 times.,  Joanne Vt

9999 favorite calcium +vit d supplement? (8/14/2015 9:32:44 AM):  while my ankle fracture heals, my doctor has me taking calcium (600) + vit D (400) two times a day. This gets dispensed as a prescription. I can see that a possible side effect is constipation. Also directs to take with meals. I am wondering if you have any thoughts as tyo how your calcium/vit d supplement performs. BTW, did you know that the MDR seems to change to 1200 mg/day for women over 50? I am ASSUMING an over the counter supplement will work for me, but promise to check with doctor before any change. I do drink 3 glasses of milk a day, and have too much love (lol) for all dairy products.,  Cindy T., WI

0008 paypal problem (8/14/2015 1:08:47 PM):  I bought a prepaid visa debit card to use on my paypal account rather than using my banking account. After opening up the debit card, it states you must activate the card and for this you have to type in your SS number. I don't want my SS number on that site or any site. I tried to enter the card number on PP without entering My SS Number but it was rejected. I do have enough money in my PP account so that I never need to transfer funds from another source. Is there a solution to this? ,  Carol-IL

0022 Phone Calls (8/14/2015 3:34:25 PM):  I got one of those calls today where a person had a heavy foreign accent and said he was from Microsoft and my computer was having trouble. I like to mess around with these people and I just started talking loudly to my husband that "oh no, something is wrong with my computer.' The man on the phone said "are you making fun of me?" And I loudly said something again. He then said something vulgar about my female body parts (I won't say it here) and hung up. It had no caller ID, sure wish there was somewhere to report this stuff.,  Karen-IA

0024 Shutterfly (8/14/2015 3:12:33 PM):  Does anyone have a code for Shutterfly, looking for one that is for a dollar amount off. Had one for $10 off $10+ order, but time got away from me and I let it expire---2 days ago. Needing to order some prints of the group family shot at my friend's 90th birthday party. She wants to give them as Christmas gifts to her family. (Took a chance by calling Shutterfly to see if they could override the expiration, but they can't.) I know they will have another eventually, but I'm kinda worried about the time----after all, she IS 90. TIA,  Susan F, LA

0036 computer help (8/14/2015 7:08:57 PM):  I keep getting a pop up block in the upper left corner of my screen that says adobe flash player error 2044 and 2148 and it has a dismiss all and a continue button and it keeps coming back no matter which one I click on any suggestions of what I can do ?,  Tammy R PA

0040 No name obviously (8/14/2015 10:35:49 PM):  You are not alone (thinking something is going on). I understand there are people that have had something happen (rape as a youth, etc) and then question everything (I had a friend in high school that was struggling) and a small percentage have physical issues. But, at the same time I am afraid there will be a lot of kids that don't understand how their life will be affected by 'making the change' (and I wonder how many will think what Bruce Jenner did was cool). One girl teen I know (I work with her parent) didn't like it when 'that time of the month' started. At first her parents said 'sorry, that is what happens to girls' (she has an older brother). Well, now I see via Facebook that she has changed her name to a boy's name and dresses like a boy. I wonder if she will still be a he in a few years (and how messed up her life will be).,  another no name

0044 Angie's List (8/15/2015 6:18:16 AM):  Does anyone know the price fora month's subscription to Angie's List. Is there a way to find out if your city is listed before signing up for a membership. Thanks,  Valdena,Ky

0045 Season finale of Jeopardy game show (8/15/2015 7:09:28 AM):  My brother's wife is a Jeopardy game show fanatic. She religiously watches every show that airs on TV. Last night was suppose to be the season finale show on TV for 2015. The ABC TV affiliate for our area airs the show at 7:30 p.m. But ABC TV opted instead to air a pre-season pro football game starting at 7 p.m. She called us late evening incensed that she couldn't watch the season finale of Jeopardy. Wanted one of us(my nephew, his lady friend, or me) to call a certain phone number & complain. I couldn't believe that she was that upset over a simple game show being temporarily replaced by a pre-season sporting event! Does anyone know when this season finale will air on TV? Was anyone able to watch it last night? And is there a way to watch this specific game show episode on the Web?,  Virginia Ann S VA

0052 Rodney's big day out (8/15/2015 10:11:25 AM):  Well, guess what I am doing (besides sitting here on RC!). I'm home alone and SO happy to be. Rodney is out ... driving ... on his own. For those of you who have been regular members since his accident in 2013, isn't this a miracle?! He is amazing and we are so blessed that he is still with us ... and to be out driving around on his own ... well, there are just no words! Thanks to everyone who prayed us through this over the past few years and sent cards with words of encouragement and with jokes to keep our sense of humor in place!,  Sandy B., MO

0059 Special Treatment (8/15/2015 11:15:58 AM):  Speck Wildhorse Mellencamp's four day jail sentence is being served in 12 hour stints over eight days in accord with a proposal from his lawyer approved by a judge because Mellencamp suffers from a panic disorder. The 20 year old son of Bloomington resident and rock musician John Mellencamp and his former wife, model Elaine Irwin, pleaded guilty in April to misdemeanor battery relating to a fight in July 2013. He originally was charged with felony battery, a charge based on allegations that the victim sustained serious injuries. But the charge was downgraded. Mellencamp will be incarcerated at the Monroe County Jail from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. In Monroe County, inmates typically serve entire 24 hour days sleeping at the jail. I think this is a case of our system is broken. Many of the inmates at the Monroe County jail suffer from multitudes of mental disorders, but you can bet they were not given the same options as Mellencamp. I guess you have to be wealthy or famous to get this kind of treatment.,  Debbie, IN

0063 Molly Problems (8/15/2015 11:57:22 AM):  Well it looks like our poor Molly has a possible UTI. She had round worms which we gave her medicine for and she passed her round worms and then diarrhea started and we figured it was the round worm medicine. So we called vet and vet said no it was probably her diet. So we have weaned her off blue buffalo on to science diet. Stools are firm first thing in morning but by afternoon and evening are runny and yellow in color. Then she has just continually this past few days just dribbled urine when she is up. I counted 10 dribbles between outside and inside in less than hours time. She is eating good & very active so vet wants to see her Monday at 9am. Needless to say it has been quite frustrating and exhausting in potty training her. Hopefully this will help her and get her on right track.,  Vicki, Va

0081 Inheritance tax etc. (8/15/2015 6:33:22 PM):  Does anyone know anything about inheritance taxes etc? My mother is 87 and has decided to go ahead and put her farm, house etc in us 3 girls names. She already has put our three names on all her c/d's at the bank. One cpa told my sister that we shouldn't do this as we would have to pay capital gains and lots of taxes if we do this? Is this so? He said that since she has a will leaving everything to us, that we will just inherit it and not pay any inheritance taxes at all. I am really confused about this. Total of her estate is about $600,000. Does anyone know much about this?,  wondering about taxes

0082 rosie record (8/15/2015 6:58:27 PM):  I participated in a guiness record breaking attempt for the most ladies dressed like Rosie the RIverteer today. We broke the record with over 1000 rosies. ,  beverly/ca.

0118 Anyone in direct sales (8/16/2015 1:13:53 PM):  Is anyone in direct sales? If so, do you have any tips on how to prevent parties from cancelling at the last minute? I had one scheduled today at 2:30 and the hostess texted me at 1:05 to cancel. I talked to her a couple of times between when she booked and today. I talked to her as recent as yesterday to see if she needed any help with anything or had any questions. She was ready to go and then today, I get a text. Would love fun ideas about how to get this to not happen.,  Sandy B., MO

0121 Compiling poems in a book (8/16/2015 1:20:40 PM):  Many of you guys know me as a would be poet. I have a cousin who wrote me before July 4 asking if I'd written a poem for Independence Day. If I had, she wanted it. I hadn't written one. But I soon came up with one. And I snail-mailed it to her. I also included a copy of a special card & verse I'd sent to an area animal organization after they lost a special cat they'd rescued nursed back to health. Early this month, I remembered 2 other poems I'd written for my late Mom. One recalled her wedding day in late June 1935. The other paid tribute to what would have been her 62nd wedding anniversary in late June 1997 had my Dad been still living. I typed them out & snail-mailed them to her. In the letter, in a rash moement. I asked her if I should collect & put what poems I'd written in a book. I never gave a thought to what her answer might be. Yesterday, I got another letter from her. She enthusiastically said I SHOULD put those poems into a book. She would give a copy to each of our Richey cousins from my Mom's side of the family & a few of her friends. She would need about 12 books in all! Part of me is afraid I've bitten off more than I can chew!. While conversely, part of me feels I can do this challenge. I just don't think I have enough verses to put them in a book. It would be more like a booklet. I never attempted a project like this before. So don't even know where to begin! Has anyone ever attempted this type of project before? And how did you do it?I think I only have about 6-8 poems I could put in a booklet.,  Virginia Ann S VA

0123 Full moon?? (8/16/2015 2:48:13 PM):  What is going on today? I went to a few stores. At one someone had parked sideways in the parking lot taking up 4 spaces close to the store (not far out in the lot). Then I went to another store and someone had parked half on the sidewalk in front of the store and the back end of their car was sticking out in the lane you drive in. The parking lots had spaces close to the store but for some reason these people must think they are more special than the rest of us who park in one space. ,  Mary

0149 Work tomorrow (8/16/2015 8:32:04 PM):  Summer was fun. Today we went to a truck show and to a lake in Massachusetts for a swim & picnic. Tomorrow, I start back with a "school retreat" followed by inservice days until August 26th when the kids actually come back. Not sure if I can get in my room though. As of last Friday afternoon, they need to install the new carpet for the library and put all the books and shelving back in. Since my room is across the hall from the library, the floor was waxed early etc.. and my tables and countertops became book storage so they could start waxing the hallways. (Actually several rooms on my side of the hallway were still storing books last week.) I'm hoping the inservice time will actually be meaningful. (Some years are definitely better than others.),  Joanne Vt

0175 Meat pie (8/17/2015 6:55:42 AM):  My MIL used to make an awesome meat pie, but I didn't get the recipe before she died. I googled it, but would like to hear from someone who has one they like. Anybody have a two crust, hamburger meat pie recipe?,  Kay-MI

0184 Full moon?-bumping up (8/17/2015 8:25:58 AM):  Joanie in NJ & FL, my DH used to bump side mirrors like you said. That would drive me nuts! There is a divided highway not far from my house. It narrows from 4 lanes to 2 lanes. Traffic backs up every day starting about 4 p.m. where it narrows. There are those that try to barge their way in before the merge. The other day, left lane was clogged with people trying to merge. Here come's this guy (I didn't see the driver, but it HAD to have been a man!!) in the left lane, goes onto the median and squeezes into a small gap in front of the car in the left lane. Never saw that happen before! ,  Susan, LA

0185 Did Have UTI (8/17/2015 9:05:02 AM):  Molly did test positive for UTI and is on antibiotics now. We also noticed yesterday that her doggie girl parts were quite swollen and around it she was developing some bumps with lesions on top. One of the areas was fairly good size knotted area under her skin. Vet said antibiotic should clear up the UTI, sore areas and lumps. I feel we got her in just in time before it got more serious. Vet said it would probably take a couple days but we should see decrease in peeing times and more of a stream of urine not constant dribbles every few minutes. I feel better and know this will help with potty training. Mostly just relieved my Molly will start feeling better. That burning stinging urgency of UTI is very uncomfortable & painful. ,  Vicki, Va.

0186 Today Show (8/17/2015 9:45:20 AM):  I just watched the 4th Hour of the Today Show with Hoda and Kathie Lee -- wow! What a tribute to Frank Gifford and appreciation by Kathie to the outpouring of care from so many people. Heavenly Joy, the America's Got Talent five year old did steal the show. If you can do On Demand or view it on, it is a must see. ,  Sue S., MN

0191 Plenti (8/17/2015 11:30:49 AM):  Used my Plenti points today, totally by accident. Stopped at gas station (Hi Susan, SC). It was crowded and their machine was acting up. Guy in front of me had problems. Didn't realize I had opted to use my $13 until time to swipe payment and I owed 1 cent!! The owner was running register and looked confused. Then we figured out that the machine must have caught up and when she told me to hit loyalty twice b/c looked like the first one didn't take, it caught up and I was actually authorizing to use my Plenti $$ earned. So I got my lunch for 1 cent! I also had an offer that I activated to get 100 extra points on my next non-gas purchase at that station so that's what I was trying to do. Hope claiming my $$ didn't mess that up. Will have to check and if so, will make another purchase before 8/28.,  Susan, LA

0198 Robbery caught on video (8/17/2015 12:53:38 PM): Hope this can be opened. Excellent quality video, sure they will catch these thugs quickly especially the slender one. At least the victim had sense to go where he was in view of security cameras. Wonder how much they stole from him. They sure put up a fight to get his wallet and didn't seem to care that they were on surveillance.,  Susan, LA

0213 Big Brother/Sun Eve. (8/17/2015 4:16:19 PM):  I should have extended my DVR to go overtime for BB. The show before it went over and I missed about 1/2 of BB. I saw Shelli go home, but if I saw it can't remember the next two on the block. What happened next?? I know I can catch on before Wed's show. but enquiring mind wants to know.,  Janice/Ok

0214 Update on Glenn (8/17/2015 4:19:36 PM):  Glenn is doing well. He has been leading the music at church for a month. Last week he was able to lead the music Sunday morning; stayed for lunch then lead the music for our pastor's ordination. We got home at 5:00. It was a fantastic day. He is still getting therapy at home. He has gone from 5 to 15 to 20 reps of each exercise twice a week. He has been getting up early and having breakfast; watching his favorite preachers on TV, studying his Bible and praying. God is strengthening his body with all of this plus the prayers of everyone. I thought he would never get to do what God called him to do again PRAISE GOD!,  Janice/Ok

0218 New pastor (8/17/2015 5:16:30 PM):  Our new pastor has been with us about one month. What a change! We absolutely love her! She's so caring and willing to listen. We are trying to make connection with middle school across from church so we provided breakfast last week for 60 teachers. There are about 600 students and they are bused in from across town. The school has an F rating. She met with principal to see what we can do for the students. I received email from her on what I am supposed to read this Sunday. She included Order of Worship, with a note to musical director on what hymns to play and the option of 2 keys that she would like them played in. OUCH! Don't know how this is going to go over. Music director always picks hymns based on sermon topic and she's never been told what key to play in "In Db/5 flats-unless you'd rather play in F Major/1 flat". Hopefully, this will roll off her back because pastor really is what we need and everything has gone very well so far. I don't see what difference it makes what key it's played in because I'd venture a guess that none of us can tell anyway. ,  Susan, LA

0241 Robbery on video-bumping up (8/18/2015 8:17:15 AM):  UPdate today on the robbery caught on gas station video that I posted link for yesterday: Man had $500 in his wallet. Says he feels he was set up by his girlfriend or her brother. I figured this wasn't a random attack (still doesn't make it any less serious). Someone had to have known he had a lot of money on him to follow him and go to such great lengths to get it.

0247 Skirts (8/18/2015 11:02:26 AM):  I am getting ready to sew some winter skirts for church this year. I plan on doing elastic waist band pencil skirts and A line skirts. I love linen fabric. Easy to see on and looks good too. However I don't just want linen. What other fabrics make good winter skirts. I am doing Google search but y'all are the best for suggestions. I am thinking of wool blend that is easy to care for but how are wool blends for a beginner sewer?,  Vicki, Va.

0248 BTFE (8/18/2015 11:09:47 AM):  I thought that there was a way on the site to connect with people interested in buying BTFE, but I can't seem to find it. Could someone direct me to where I should be looking? Thanks,  Beth B, MI

0249 (8/18/2015 11:15:15 AM):  I was looking in the RCTrader part of this site and some people were willing to trade for "Concealed cash". What exactly is this? I'm assuming it means currency wrapped in paper so that it is not visible in the envelope. Am I correct? Thanks,  Beth B, MI

0251 Brothers Fried Chicken (8/18/2015 11:31:13 AM):  Hey "New Orleans people", I took the advice of Trapper Joe on Swamp People and tried Brothers Fried Chicken. He and Tommy commented one day that their haul of alligators for the day was "better than Brothers Fried Chicken". It always smells great when I get my gas at that station, but never tried it. I got the 3 pc. white (breast and 2 wings) w/ rice dressing for $6. The breast was larger than the size at most chain chicken places. It had a good flavor and was moist. I'm not much on wings, but will eat them. The clerk gave me 3 wings instead of 2 b/c 2 of them were very small. When I broke into each wing, I realized that not only was the batter dried up, but the all the meat was dry. Couldn't even get one bite off the wings. I loved the rice dressing. A tad spicy but just drank extra. A hefty portion, also much larger than the chain side order sizes. Chock-full of meat (which I love in a rice dressing)---sausage, chicken and beef. Although I can't say that the chicken was any better than other "local" places except for the size, I would go back for the dressing. Has anyone else tried their chicken?,  Susan, LA

0276 Thanks/Skirts (8/18/2015 6:39:04 PM):  Thanks for advice tips on winter skirts. I too prefer lighter weight material. I am working on gathered skirt right now but it's slow progress with potty trading Molly, housework & meals. I also call it the gathered skirt from the pits of you know where. Simple skirt but everything had to be stay stitched and I had to end up cutting a lot of material off because it just flared out to much on my short plus size figure. I hope the next material I sew does not need to be stay stitched. I have made a winter gray pencil skirt in dark gray and it really looks nice. I love pencil skirts. They look nice on just about any figure and you can do so much with them. Big Thanks Again.,  Vicki, Va.

0280 Bumping up--Susan, SC (8/18/2015 7:11:25 PM):  Yeah, we all need reminders. I went back to "yesterday's" OTC to see if you had posted anything, but by the time I got to that day's posts, I'd forgotten why I went there. Sometimes I'm not the brightest bulb in the pack.,  Susan, LA

0282 Nancy, LA-pastor (8/18/2015 7:24:17 PM):  Baptists do get to choose their own pastor. UMC sends us ours. And since we are a small church and can only pay a part-time pastor, we are very limited. We lucked out with this one. Your congregation sounds like the same make-up as our church. At our other church, I was the youngest and it's not good to have a church where the youngest is mid=50s (that was a while back). I am not the youngest here, but only 4 others younger. Our only youth is a second-grader. The next youngest is 24 years old. And then we have the parents of the second-grader. ,  Susan, LA

0283 Dinner (8/18/2015 7:32:46 PM):  Tonight fixed a roast in the crockpot, mashed potatoes, green beans and bread/butter.

Trying to find easy things on this first full week back to work/college for two of mine.,  Susan, SC

0284 Annoying phone calls (8/18/2015 7:34:42 PM):  It's been a summer of those calls! Every day last week a young man offered me a free cruise -- I just hung up on him. Now the "computer calls" have begun again. This evening it was Victor (with a heavy accent) and I told him that we have no computer. And another "Rachel call" came in about my credit rating, too. What do you do? Survey calls are easy: I simply ask what they pay if I do their survey. There's usually a pregnant silence and they never call back!,  Alice Dodge, OR

0303 Travels (8/19/2015 7:51:56 AM):  My Grandson, the software engineer, went to Seattle to spend a few days with his old college chums. His perception was similar to ours when we went there-it's a spectacular place. One of his friends gave him a grand tour of Microsoft's facilities. There isn't anything that they don't have for employees, they even have rooms where people can take naps when they feel like it. Starting pay for software engineers-$130,000/year plus benefits galore. They went to Whidbey Island to go kayaking on Puget Sound. The line for the ferry was long and the sign said it was a 2 1/2 hour wait. His friend took a shortcut and pulled in front of a woman who was waiting near the front of the line. She got out of the car and threatened to report them. They told her they were from out of state and didn't know there was a line. She said she would let them go this time.

In short, he had a great time. He was tempted to apply to Microsoft, but said his whole family was on the east coast and it didn't make sense.,  Bob, PA

0308 online orders (8/19/2015 9:23:26 AM):  since my DD is going to college in September we have been doing some online orders to get all the stuff she needs. But in the last two weeks ive gotten two packages of the wrong items and had to call the company to exchange. Amazon messed up a package of pads and Michaels craft store messed up water color paints. Its annoying to call and tell the company that they messed up. But i also understand that people are not perfect.,  Beth pa

0310 Funny (8/19/2015 9:30:29 AM):  The other day I posted on Rodney's FB page that he played in the satellite tournament of the "HPT" thinking everyone would know that meant Heartland Poker Tour since most everyone knows that Rodney LOVES playing Texas Hold'em. I had dinner with a good friend last night and she asked if HPT meant Handicapped Pool Tournament. I cracked up.,  Sandy B., MO

0316 cell phone, internet (8/19/2015 10:36:34 AM):  Hi Everyone: Is there any cell phone I can use to work on the internet as well as take calls, plus pics. Everyone is telling me I have to keep my PC. My doctor says my back is way too bad. I don't want to pay for a phone and the internet. That is basic and it cost 59. From what everyone is saying the contract on a cell phone will be as much. Please LMK you can post or email me at or both. Thanks, Have a Blessed Day.,  Doris Gibson,Cols,OH

0322 Just for Fun (8/19/2015 12:09:52 PM):  What have you bought recently to use a coupon or get a rebate that you have not tried in the past, and what did you think of it? Here are some of mine: Oxi-Clean Laundry detergent - Love it, works good in my front load washer, smells great. Persil laundry detergent - Works fine, but not any better than cheaper brands. Too expensive even with a coupon. Always Discreet liners - Work okay but I think Poise works better. Viva Vantage paper towels - Love them, really strong even when wet. Let's share our success stories (and failures!)so we can make good use of all the coupons and rebates that we are seeing for these new products. ,  LK

0323 Rain! (8/19/2015 12:23:39 PM):  It's raining! It's been 3 weeks since we had any measureable rain and it was just a brief downpour that came so fast, it just ran off, didn't have time to soak in. Our June was very wet, but virtually no rain in July and extremely hot. It began raining about 9 this morning and 4 hours later, it's still coming down. A slow, steady rain. Just what we need to soak in. From looking at the radar, it will be raining for quite a while longer. Even forecast to stick around for tomorrow. No one is complaining. Just so glad to have it.,  Susan, LA

0327 My Health/etc (8/19/2015 1:16:46 PM):  Someone asked about my health. I am doing great. My sugar levels were down 2 pts when I went to Dr for check up. I had lost 9 lbs since the last visit. Today was my first day in "In School Detention." (no students) I spent the morning helping pass out new schedules in high school; then I had lunch with adults. Usually, I have a student the first day by lunch, but hopefully, I will finish the first day alone. The last two years, I have had a student before middle school breakfast was over. I have spent the summer spoiling my granddaughter who turned 11 months old yesterday. She is so much fun. She came over almost everyday this summer. My older dd and I kept her for 4 days this summer while her mother went to a Thirty-One conference in Denver. Her dad was home but he works. She is taking steps now, but crawling gets her places faster. When I rock her; we sing together, only I know the real words. She went to Sunday School last week and the nursery worker described her as "chill" because she is behaved and quiet (until she gets to know people), then she is noisy; but sweet. The church service nursery worker called her an "avid reader" because she had a book and was turning the pages "reading" to the other children...haha. I am sure they understood every word in baby talk. She says mama and dada; not grandma,yet!!! (: When her mom washes dishes; Heidi cries and pulls at her leg. Jill says, "I know." Now, Heidi, says, "I know back." Ha ha. I love it.,  Janice/Ok

0328 Rain (8/19/2015 1:18:22 PM):  We had a quick hard shower this morning before 1st hour in school; then it quit. It cooled everything off; and the middle school kids got to play on the playground in the cool air. It sure beat the up to 105 temps we have had.,  Janice/Ok

0331 needing prayers (8/19/2015 2:37:11 PM):  I know someone, a male early 30's, that thank God has finally woke up & decided wants to change his life for the better. He graduated high school & never really tried to better his life. Just getting by was enough. Did some pot & claims that is all, wiser than to do other things, watched bad stuff happen to "friends" with meth & heroin. He realizes he has no real friends & very few family members. Half relatives turned backs to him, other half still think he can & will turn things around. Trying for full time jobs because only able to get 29 hr a week jobs anymore. Praying he can get 40 hrs & turn things around. Talking about going to community college nights if he can get Pell grants. He really needs prayers for a decent full time job. Has been homeless from time to time & trying to get into a shelter now. As you can imagine, you can't rent a place on $8 an hour 29 hr week. ,  hope he can turn things around

0372 blackberry recipes? (8/19/2015 10:38:11 PM):  We are getting a ton of blackberries and am looking for some new recipes. I bought one of the two burner outside stoves so I will be able to can outside (yay since I can't can on our induction stove) so I know I will be making some jam once I have a new propane tank and have it setup. I found a recipe for black fruit roll-up so I will make some of that tomorrow. Anything else? I am getting tired of cobbler...,  Heather, NV

0381 engraving id on electronics (8/20/2015 11:30:15 AM):  What is better to have engraved on back of smart tvs, cameras, higher end IPODs, etc, your SSN, phone number, drivers license #? Thinking if someone were to take items to a pawn shop, or police found stolen items somehow, how to best get my stuff back. Heck, if stolen I could even find it listed on Craigs list. I remember hearing about in some police depts, you can borrow an engraver, but what do you engrave on items? New $250 camera being delivered today & it will be used at high school for a photography class. Must be taken to school 4-5 days a week. Concerned it somehow could be stolen since kids no longer have lockers.,  worried

0390 Duggar (8/20/2015 2:33:29 PM):  I thought I read a comment here last night about Josh Duggar. I wanted to agree with it but it's gone. He admitted this morning that he has had affair(s), and a porn addiction. There are no words to describe how creepy he is. I'd say this is the nail in the coffin for the Duggar family's fame. No tv station or sponsor in the world would touch them now. They will have to find ways to earn a real living like normal people. Josh Duggar has no education, no skills, so I wonder how he'll support his wife and 4 children. No doubt his wife will stay with him since she's programmed to "forgive" instead of thinking for herself. If she had any self-respect, or love for her children, she'd pack up today. It's amazing how people self-destruct. Josh Duggar is a testament to how poorly the parenting philosophy of JimBob and Michelle worked. Sheltering your children from the terrible (sarcasm here) world to keep them innocent and pure. No kissing or front hugging before marriage. Those rules didn't do Josh any good at all. In fact, he took it to the opposite extreme. You gotta wonder what other secrets haven't come out yet. Then there's Jared of ex-Subway fame. He gets the award for biggest Idiot of the Year. He has no talent, no looks, no nothing going for him. Yet with phenomenal luck, he becomes the spokesman for a national company, bringing fame and a $15 million fortune. And he threw it away. All he had to do was be a reasonably decent guy. Yet he told a woman wearing a wire that he likes sex with minors and described the things he did with those minors. Geesh, Jared, you'll have plenty of time in jail to mull over your stupidity and depravity. ,  Vicki

0398 Alice (8/20/2015 3:08:18 PM):  Yes, please do keep me on the list. Feeling really down today. Sent DD shopping yesterday with her friends and she came home empty-handed. She told DH she doesn't know how to shop without me and that got her upset (she's 15),  Debbie, OR

0428 Former President Clinton (8/20/2015 10:29:24 PM):  I would be extremely hard for Bill Clinton to "molest his sister" since he didn't have one! Bill was an only child but did have a half brother born of his mother's later marriage.,  Google Researcher

0437 Duggars (8/21/2015 9:18:01 AM):  I feel sad about the Duggar situation. I even feel more sad for those that judge. That is God's job, not ours. None of us are above sin. The Bible said the devil is as a roaring lion going about seeking whom he may devour. Maybe Josh was weak. Sinners should be restored when they full, not stomped upon. The Duggars may have seemed too good to be true to many of you. But I was raised in a Baptist church with strict beliefs, although it wasn't as strict as theirs as far as courting goes. But there is nothing wrong with that. The Duggars aren't living off the system like many in our society today. When the people were accusing the lady in the Bible of her sins. Whatever Jesus said or supposedly has been said to have written in the sand, the people dispursed. He said let them without sin cast the first stone. Possibly he wrote or spoke their sins...lying, stealing, or any of the other 10 commandments. Do we all follow each one of them? So, how can or why would we point fingers at the Duggars? Pray for them. The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Josh will be punished, but it doesn't have to be by us. For those of us that read and believe the Bible it says we should forgive 70 x's 7. That's a lot of forgiveness. In Psalms 66:18 it says If we regard iniquity (sin) in our hearts, the Lord will not hear us. So if we have unforgiveness or sin in our hearts, he won't hear our prayers. Just you all.,  Janice/Ok

0453 Prayers please (8/21/2015 12:24:28 PM):  Again for my mom. I visited her for her birthday yesterday and was heading home today once I made a quick visit again. Well she was burning up with fever this am. Waiting for blood tests and cultures to be done. She's barely waking up. Infection really knocks old folks down. There has been no improvement in her eating and now a new problem. I hope it's an easy fix. Thanks. ,  Sue P., CT

0456 Venting (8/21/2015 12:35:28 PM):  Jan of 2013, I had my left shoulder repaired. Ruptured tendon, frayed bicep, rotator cuff tear and bone spurs. Went through rehab and in June was released. Pretty much back to normal except for a little stiffness when my arm was behind my back. Last one to stretch out. One month later, I was rear ended while stopped at a red light, waiting to make a right turn. We were hit hard enough to push the Prius 2 car lengths with my foot on the brake. My head was turned to the right and looking back, waiting for a chance to turn and we got hit. It's a weird shaped intersection, coming off a freeway off ramp. My shoulder took the full impact of the shoulder belt. There was no screeching brakes from the 2000 Mazda of someone trying to stop. Best guess is she was doing at least 15 MPH when she hit us, maybe upwards to 25 MPH. It did $1,100 worth of damage to the Prius, destroyed the buffers in the back bumper. It was not a little bump in a parking lot. Within 30 minutes, my shoulder began to hurt. I was able to see a Doc from Orthopedics within a few days. Ice, sling, anti inflammatory for 2 weeks. Went back, no improvement. Tried a Cortisone shot, no help. Tried 2 rounds of Physical Therapy until the pain got so bad I had to stop with the PT's okay. Went back to Surgeon who did another shot into the shoulder joint, no relief and I had a bad reaction to it. Each shot the effects became worse. This was my 3rd one in 2 years and it left me covered head to toe in a red rash and I barely slept in 4 days. All he could say was, "Wish I could wave a magic wand and make it go away." 3 times during the appt. Went back to him in Feb this year and same thing. There was nothing he could do. He left room for everything, shaved down 2 bones for tendon room. Never would address the MRI that said there is 3 impinged tendons. Went to another Dr. in the same practice for a 2nd opinion yesterday and got the same thing. Out of 100 rotator cuff repairs, 25 people will be left with poor results. Due to the car accident, I am now in the 25 who did not get good results. I went from 100% able to do everything to maybe 50% use of my arm, being unable to raise it much above shoulder height. I'm mostly disappointed. In constant pain, day and night. Right now, my Primary is giving me pain medication so I can sleep at night but not sure how long that can go on. Thanks for listening. Sometimes when I write things out, it helps. What really gets me is the final words yesterday "Well, it's not that bad. It's not cancer (he knew I went through stomach cancer) or another bad thing." I understand he was able to put it in perspective, since it didn't happen to him. Since I'm on disability from the after affects of chemo, there was no job that I wasn't able to get back to and do. He wouldn't consider another MRI, the other one is 2 years old now or any surgery to look at it. I'll bounce back after a couple of days. Right now I'm just feeling down. I can cope with pain, it's not that. It's just being dismissed and not being listened to. I did try other Dr's outside this practice but none would take me on, since it was shortly after surgery. One Dr would see me in 2021. :),  Melody

0461 Run Anna, Run! (8/21/2015 1:04:27 PM):  You said to tell you, so here are some of Barbara's words: "cult of a family" "The people around Josh Duggar are enabling his behavior, including his wife (who will never leave him), his parents whose idea of punishment for pedophilia is to send him to do construction for a couple months" ,  just sayn

I currently am more upset about a Green Beret that might be thrown out of the military. This involved the rape of a 12 yr old boy. Being an Afghanistan boy shouldn't matter, what happened was horrible & now to throw this Green Beret out possibly makes me very mad. We need more men like this one!,  jmho

0484 feeling stupid (8/21/2015 5:15:33 PM):  I hate to feel so stupid & technology always does it to me. Slowly I am kind of learning things but always seems like something else I need to learn. I haven't done SavingStar in a long time. No longer does Kroger report to them so I now need to do picture of receipt & scan of produce. I bought black plums & can't for life of me figure out how to scan using Iphone 4S. I thought I could do like I do with Ibotta & hold phone close to upc & bam it takes the info. No, not with SavingStar. Is there a simple way to do this? I gave up on SavingStar because they always denied my receipt while Ibotta had no issue. Decided to give them a try again & I am stuck. ,  confused senior

Ninety-six!!! We thought she was probably in her 70's because she in NO WAY looked 96. She's still driving herself around. Lives alone. Travels. And doesn't walk with a limp or anything. Did my heart good to meet someone like her :),  Sandy B., MO

0517 Hints for infused water? (8/22/2015 12:08:14 PM):  We have some recipes. We do drink lots of water but it does get tiresome being plain. Tried oranges yesterday but not sure about leaving the peel on before slicing it up? Made it kind of bitter tasting. We did wash the outside with soap and water, then a vinegar rinse.

0522 Duggers (8/22/2015 1:03:26 PM):  Barb/Org. Karen/Ia. Good posts. One does have to repent; ask forgiveness, etc. Josh may have said I am sorry please forgive; but remember the Bible says the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Just because you don't act on your lust, doesn't mean it isn't wrong. If a man looks at a women with lust in his heart; it is just as wrong as if he acts on it. Ladies; have you ever looked at a man and not lusted or had thoughts? I have, but I have asked forgiveness immediately. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Vicki mentioned David who impregnated a soldiers wife and sent him in to battle to be killed. She was Bathsheba. He lusted for her I think she she was on a balcony. David repented and asked forgiveness from God. He later experienced the death of his baby. Those who are Dugger bashing might read some of their books. The girls have written one about the Dugger Girls. I don't think they married the first guys that came along to get out of the house. They prayed for God to send the right one just like I did. Had I believed in courting in the 60's I might not have had such a hard time finding the one God wanted for me. I kissed a lot of frogs before finding my prince.,  Janice/Ok

0527 Update on Walter (8/22/2015 6:09:45 PM):  Walter FINALLY gave in after much difficulty getting him up a looong flight of stairs to bed & we now have a hospital bed in our living room.It was delivered Fri.afternoon.The first night he slept quite restlessly as he wasn't used to it.Last night I didn't hear a peep out of him.In fact he was so quiet once during the night when I had to take a bathroom break I was going to check him to see if he was still breathing.He just got into it a few minutes ago to watch his beloved football as he was worn out from getting through the day.I think he is sorry he didn't consent to one a while ago.Still insists he doesn't need an aide to help with shower but I think it would be so much easier for him.I don't know how he is even getting in shower by himself as I have to lift his legs to get in car & up the stairs into house as both feet & legs are very edematous.I think the cancer has spread to other organs.It has been 4 &1/2 months since initial diagnosis & it wwas all thru his abdominal lymph nodes then.When he went to see our family dr.after he was in hospital the dr.told him it was a very aggressive type of cancer & he didn't feel the chemo would have even helped him so I am so glad he quit tx.even if it means I will lose him sooner.He was sooo miserable after 2 tx.& that is no way to live out your life.My heart aches to see him like he is now.So weak & unable to do anything without becoming completely exhausted.I do so hope he will just go to sleep but do so hope I know it is time so I can be by his side holding his hand & just talking to him.,  Cathy S.NY

0550 My mother - long (8/23/2015 8:11:36 AM):  For many, many years, I have been searching for an answer as to why my mother (not so much my dad, he's sort of exempt, if you will) has not been like other mothers (not loving, etc). The main reason is that she grew up in a terribly abusive family, married an abusive man, and now has been married to a controlling man. There are too many odd examples and not enough room on this post to describe. I finally found the phrase, "Emotionally absent." She has never been there when I've had difficult situations arise in my life. This year, my 76-year old mom has been acting very odd. As a result, I have been distraught (again) about how I have been treated. Much of this builds up inside of me, and then when I've had it, it comes out at the most inopportune time. April was the most recent time. I told her that she doesn't keep me informed about things (both she and my dad feel twice; she had to go to the ER because of dehydration). Last week, I thought I would try again and called her. This was a mistake. She proceeded to tell me that I needed help, that I needed to grow up, that I was spoiled and expected to have things my way, that I can't use money to buy people, etc. I think this was a result of my outburst in April telling her I needed to know what was going on with her and my dad (he is 82). She said she doesn't want me to visit or to call her until I've sought counseling. She told me this 18 years ago in a 19-page, single spaced, typewritten letter that was certified mailed. After reeling from another rejection situation, I have calmed down considerably. My mom has serious emotional issues which she never dealt with. As she gets older, they are starting to come out alot. This isn't the first time. She hasn't talked to my sister for 45 years because of a teenage incident. There have been times when she won't speak to me for three or more years. I've decided to stay away but plan to call their retirement community and ask the social workers to make sure she is ok with her finances, that she is taking care of my dad, that she is eating ok, etc. I keep grasping for an answer but I know there isn't one. It makes me sad that she thinks I am this way when I have confirmed with friends that I am not. I was hoping I would be there in my parent's last few years but it's evident I'm being shut out. They don't have anyone else. I'm not searching for an answer nor pity. I just don't understand. Thanks for reading.,  Mindy, MD

0551 Joanie B (8/23/2015 8:15:46 AM):  The version of the Bible called the King James is a translation, not the original text. The books of the New Testament (not Old Testament) were written within 100 years of Christ's death, in Greek, approximately 2000 years ago. They have been translated multiple times and there are many versions of the Bible, like the King James, New English Bible, etc. These were all translations from the original Greek. Now you may have a point that some of the original writers were misogynistic, but they weren't from King James 16th century. Paul was definitely misogynistic. He wrote his text shortly after Christ's death, about 2000 years ago. One of the reasons that people who claim that every word of the Bible is straight from God are challenged is that the Bible is a translation that passed through many hands. The original Greek has many words and phrases that have multiple meanings and can be translated several different ways. I believe that the writings of all the authors of the books of the Bible were influenced by the culture of their time and so have to be weighed against that. ,  Barbara NC

0575 plastic caps (8/23/2015 1:06:25 PM):  My sister asked my mom & me to save plastic caps from shampoo, water bottles, Coke, what have you. Not lids like from sour cream,etc. Two woman she works with are wanting them. My sister has no idea why 1 woman does. The other told her she knows a kid with cancer & he takes them to his Dr & gets a discount on bill. That doesn't make sense to me & I tried Google. American Cancer Society says it is hoax about caps = free chemo. I can't find reasons why someone would want them. I'd be more prone to remember to save caps if I had a clue why I am doing it. Anyone know of some organization that collects them? Google Researcher, any ideas? I am not as good at researching as you. ,  willing to help, but why?

0579 Joanie in NJ & FL (8/23/2015 1:25:42 PM):  That's a new one on me. Please, please, tell me what chapters are missing from the Bible. I would also like to know your sources. Documented sources can be checked by others and collaborated. Who is/are your authority that you on relying on to tell you the "truth" please?,  Inquiring minds need to know

0580 Joanie (8/23/2015 1:27:53 PM):  If you check the Torah, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the first five chapters of the Old Testament, you will find that they are nearly identical. King James did have pressure from the Protestants, Catholics, and politicians, but told the fifty scholars who wrote the KJV to write it as accurate as possible. One thing that it does take to be a Christian is faith. That amounts to believing in things that you are told but have no first hand knowledge of. Heaven is a great concept because it gives a person something to look forward to. Without faith, there is nothing to look forward to after death. The Bible identifies good and evil, and without it there would be no decency concepts to go by. Please rethink your religious thoughts. JMHO,  Bob, PA

0610 Update on Walt (8/23/2015 8:04:59 PM):  First of all I want to say a big THANK YOU for all your posts during this difficult time in our lives.They do mean a LOT to me.Let me try to answer some of your questions.Walt is on Hospice & has been for about a month.I had them when my mom was dying plus my son is an RN & works for them so I already knew the great help they would be.The RN visits once a week & the social worker comes about once a month.I also know I can call any time if something comes up.I had to call the on call nurse this AM as Walt became very congested & was still that way this morning.I was afraid he might be getting pneumonia.She came right out to check him over & said he lungs were perfectly clear.All the congestion was in his throat area.I asked if should start taking his Musinex & she said it would help.He used to take it faithfully but then quit when his congestion got better.Then I got a call from my son yelling at me(in a good way)He said why didn't you call me.I said because you just got back from a week's vacation knew you probably didn't get home till the wee hours of the morning & I didn't want to bother you at 8:30 in the morning.That is what the on call nurse is for.He agreed & said he would be out in a few days.My daughter lives about 8 miles from me & my son about 12 & they would drop everything in a heartbeat if I needed them.Walt did get orders from my son to start using his walker instead of leaning on me when he is walking.I was so afraid he was going to pull me down as I am tiny myself.If that happened & I ended up breaking something I would be out of commission & he would end up in nursing home & that is the last thing I want.He was so depressed today.He knows he is going downhill fast.He is so hungrey for Pizza so we were going to go get one from Pizza Hut.Well,of coarse that didn't happen.In fact he couldn't even drive me to store for my papers so I took a deep breath,got in the car & drove myself.I hate to drive & I hate our car(a GM Envoy)I want to trade it in for a small car but we probably waited too long to do that.He is in no shape to go car hunting.Doesn't matter anyway as I will probably lose it when I lose him anyway.Can't afford the payments.,  Cathy S.NY

0621 Williston, ND (8/23/2015 10:17:51 PM):  My SIL had to fly Denver Thursday, pick up his company truck & drive to Williston, ND for a week of safety courses for his job. My DD decided she wanted to go with & see what Williston was like. Coming from AZ, she loved all the rain they had yesterday. She had to buy a sweatshirt & sweatpants because the high was around mid 50's. (our high was about 105) She sent me a picture of a sign outside Walmart where they are hiring for $17 an hour! I told her to check out what they pay ER nurses, but she doesn't want to be there in the winter. lol Government housing was all nice, taken care of, no tagging or trash piled around. In the Walmart & any place they have been to eat, there are a lot of employees from Liberia. Certainly different from life in AZ. ,  Susan L, AZ

0638 Much worse (8/24/2015 6:49:56 AM):  I have noticed the past several months that the Parade magazine, which comes with the Sunday newspaper inserts, is getting much poorer in content. There are fewer articles, fewer pages, and the articles are of minimal interest. Last August the paper was sold and moved to a TN location. It had 85 employees, but now has only 20. The reason it was sold was from losses of money putting them in the red. That was caused by so many newspapers throughout the nation going out of business. This is a sign of the times...,  Bob, PA

0642 VA Benefits (8/24/2015 8:23:36 AM):  My father was honorably discharged from the Air Force in 1966, after roughly 4 years of service. He does have his DD-214. He was just diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. I have a call into his local VA service office, but does anyone know where I could easily find what benefits are available to him, esp. in regards to home health care, help with bills, etc.? I have found some information on burial benefits but that's it. He is on a very limited income so help with care and bills during the next few months would be very helpful. Thank you so much.,  Beth B. MI

0669 Joanie in NJ & FL (8/24/2015 1:43:01 PM):  If you think the dead sea scrolls have absolutely nothing to do with the bible, your religious education left a lot to be desired.

0673 College Probs (8/24/2015 2:35:07 PM):  my daughter writes newspaper articles for her school. And the newspaper heads are always down her neck about plagiarizing her work. My daughter tries very hard not to do that but since she mainly writes tv reviews its hard because there are only so many ways to write what she wants to say. To her its stupid because they will not allow her to become the head of the life section because of this problem and also because they know she writes approximately 3-4 articles a week for them because that is part of her work study. They also end up giving a huge lecture to the whole staff about this when she is present just to humiliate her. She is very upset and understands why there is so many consequences on plagerism. but its frustrating to her because she is trying her best. ,  beth pa

0677 Who Wrote the Bible? (8/24/2015 2:51:38 PM):  I found a good site that answers many questions. Google "Who wrote the Bible/Let us Reason Ministries) There is a good printing with lots of good information. It would be good if everyone in this discussion would take the time to read it; then comment. I wasn't allowed to copy it other than for my use. Also Joanie/Fla: There are two books in the Bible with Women's names; Esther and Ruth; although not written by women. The men in the Bible wrote about many women who were in important to the work of God in Old and New Testament. These writers were not women haters. II Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is give by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. ,  Janice/Ok

0681 Bob/Faith Bumpup (8/24/2015 3:00:51 PM):  Here are the scripture you were referencing in your post. Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing through the word of God. Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he is a rewards those who diligently seek him. James 2:19 You believe that God is one; you do well, even the demons believe and shudder. This is a favorite of mine: Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding, In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths. With the way that things are going on in this world; you would think people wouldn't argue about the existence of God and the Bible and would be prepared for the end. The Bible, although some don't believe it says that someday every knee will bow before God. If I am wrong; which I don't believe I am; I have the peace that passes all understanding. Not a sermon to you Bob, I just got on a roll and added it. ,  Janice/Ok

0688 Drivers (8/24/2015 3:27:24 PM):  What is up with people today? In 10 miles, I had 3 drivers do weird things. 1). Driver from used car lot (the kind where they have the price in glow in the dark numbers on the windshield) starts to pull out in front of me. I slam on brakes (thankfully no one was riding my bumper) and everything in the car slid to the floor. The nut was only going to the next driveway in the same parking lot! 2). Driver pulls out from Winn Dixie on 5 lane road and rides about 50 feet (against traffic!!) to go to business next door. 3). Driver in front of me at red light is turning left but has right signal on. Thought they were turning into McDonalds which is an immediate right after the left turn onto the adjoining road. But NOOOO.....they keep going straight. About a mile down the road, they slow down and have a right signal on, indicating that they would probably turn into driveway of one of the houses along that stretch of road. Wrong again! They make a sharp LEFT turn. Where are their minds?!,  Susan, LA

0697 20456 Post (8/24/2015 3:52:47 PM):  Melody you have got to be so frustrated with all your shoulder issues. Mine hurts in various levels of discomfort and you will laugh how it happened. I went to my primary care doctor for my annual flu and tripped on a rug in the lobby. I went splat, purse and keys flying and me in instant pain. My arm felt like it was jammed, the doctor looked at it and said it was fine. Two days later I couldn't get out of bed, so DH helped me drag back to the dr and saw a different one in the practice. They realized my shoulder was messed up so got me into an ortho. Once I saw them they tried PT and that was awful. When I went back to ortho he just went back and forth and well let's try another round of PT. By this time I was losing feeling in my arm. I had a friend with me or I would never have believed what he said. That very day I went to my PT office and asked who was the best surgeon in town for shoulder repair. I went to him, had my rotator cuff repaired and up to last month still have to have cortizone shots in it. Either the front or back. When you said the accident which I am sure what really messed you up, that had to have triggered mine because I got hit my the air bag also. I am not a candidate for any kind of surgery so my doctor isn't even bothering with an MRI but you have got to get one, with a new doctor who will listen. I thank my doctor everytime I see him for listening to me. ,  Chris, OH

0698 Dumb thing I did today! (8/24/2015 4:49:01 PM):  My nephew's lady friend was going to take me grocery shopping. I realized I needed to go buy the drive-in window of my bank to make a withdrawal. I thought I was only tearing off 1 check from my checkbook. I filled out the front of the check. Then waited until we were almost at the bank to endorse it. I handed the check to my nephew's lady friend who in turn handed to the teller. The teller suddenly said to me I had torn off 2 checks. And I'd endorsed the back side of the 2nd check. I now had to endorse the back side of the top check! Teller suggested I write "void" on the 2nd check so I won't mistakenly use it to pay a bill. Is that my only option? or is there a way I can use it to pay a bill?,  Virginia Ann S VA

It's horrible and should go away. (Okay the last couple of chapters about what might have happened to Dinah is fine).,  Dianne in GA

0732 First Day of School (8/25/2015 10:40:18 AM):  I read this over 20 years ago when my daughters were starting school from local newspaper(Salisbury Post)It was written by a principal in Indiana. Applies to ALL kids 1st day. My son starts school this week. Its' all going to be strange and new to him for a while,and I wish you would sort of treat him gently. Up to now he's been boss of the backyard.I have always been around to repair his wounds,and I've always been handy to soothe his feelings. But now.... Things are going to be different. This morning he's going to walk down the front steps, wave his hands and start on his great adventure that probably will include wars and tragedy and sorrow. To live his life in the world will require faith and love and courage.So teacher,I wish you would sort of take him by his young hand and teach him the things he will have to know. Teach him,but gently if you can. He will have to learn,I know,that all men are not just,that all men are not true. Teach him that for every scoundrel,there is a hero.For every crooked politician,there is a dedicated leader.Teach him for every enemy,there is a friend.Let him learn early that the bullies are the easiest people to lick. Teach him the wonder of books.Give him quiet time to ponder the eternal mystery of birds in the sky,bees in trees,the sun in the sky and flowers on a green hill. Teach him about the world of work.Teach him that it is far more honorable to fail than to cheat.Teach him to have faith in his own ideas,even if everyone tells him they are wrong.Try to give my son the strength not to follow the crowd when everyone else is getting on the bandwagon.Teach him to listen to all men,but to filter all he hears on a screen of truth and to take only the truth that comes through. Teach him to sell his brawn and brains to the highest bidder,but never to put a price tag on his heart and soul. Teach him to close his ears in a howling mob and to stand and fight if he thinks he's right. Teach him gently,but don't cuddle him,because only the test of fire makes fine steel. This is a big order,teacher,but see what you can do.He's such a nice little fellow,my son. Written in Salisbury Post by columnist Rose Post. Hope you enjoyed,I know very long. ,  Janet C,NC

0740 Cheryl/Ma (8/25/2015 11:33:04 AM):  I need an update on Eli. We had special prayer for him in church last Sunday. Hope it isn't Lyme disease and that it was something simple and healed.,  Janice/Ok

0749 Cruise (8/25/2015 2:34:02 PM):  Thanks to everyone that gave some input. We want a cruise with really good food. We went on a disney cruise about 2 months ago and the food was fantastic, We went on a Carnival cruise about a month ago and we were not impressed with the food. My sister in law completed all her chemo from breast cancer and we want to take her on a cruise that is FANTASTIC. Donna which cruise line do you have booked?,  Just asking

0751 Fairs anyone (8/25/2015 3:16:39 PM):  There are 109 fairs each year in PA. Seven of them are right here in Lancaster County. The area fairs are spaced out from now until sometime in October so that none of them compete with each other. Each fair has something unique to the community that it is held in.,  Bob, PA

0753 BTFE and Coke Points (8/25/2015 3:46:42 PM):  If anyone has any BTFE they're not going to donate to a school we could put them to use at Myia's school. Same thing with Coke points. If anyone would like to donate Coke points her school is in Excelsior Springs, MO, and it's called Westview Elementary School. TIA,  Sandy B., MO

0755 Honda CRV touring awd update (8/25/2015 4:59:54 PM):  Well, I went in and test drove it again, drove it to DH's work so he could drive it and we could discuss how much we wanted to pay for it. The sticker had the MSRP and then had a $2,9xx adder for our area (huh?). I had checked and all the other websites Google Researcher had listed so I thought I was prepared to do the negotiating without DH (and I know someone who works their so I was told I would be given a great deal). Well..., I was shocked when they came out and listed the MSRP as about $6,000 and the price was about $8,000 more than what TrueCar said the target was for our area. I said no and said what I hoped to pay out the door. They came back and still had the MSRP listed as higher than what was on the car (which included their adder) and they were still about $3500 more than my max. So, I walked away after calling DH and him saying (which I agreed with) that he felt they were taking advantage of me being there by myself. And, then he said he wants me to go back and compare the new Toyota Rav4 to the Honda CRV (he thought the seats were more comfortable at the auto show, etc - I am starting to wonder if the Rav4 had cloth seats versus the leather ones in the Honda I was going to buy). So, I guess I trade the daughter the Mercury Villager for the Rav4 since I need to drive long distances the next couple of weeks and go back to square one. I hate looking for new vehicles.....,  Heather, NV

0757 Gas (8/25/2015 5:24:45 PM):  Our Gas fell about 8 cents today to $1.97. I bet it will fall more with the World economy in a tail spin and the stock market instability.,  Susan, SC

0776 Bumping books up (8/26/2015 6:29:49 AM):  I enjoyed reading all the opinions on The Red Tent. I remember when The DaVinci Code first came out, I had one friend who refused to read it because it went against all her religious teaching....same idea,it is FICTION! I wish I could remember the name of a book I read that was about Jewish women in the the early/mid 20th century. I learned more about Jewish tradition than I ever knew! One of my refunding friends is Jewish and I would always bounce ideas and thoughts off her. Until I went to work in my 20s, I never met anyone who wasn't Catholic!!,  Joanie in NJ & FL

0780 hallmark (8/26/2015 6:53:14 AM):  the one here packed out yesterday. I thought i twas supposed to be Friday but something made me check yesterday. I was probably the last customer and I thought wouldnt it be ironic if I got one of those survey things for the $2 on my receipt. I did. Its so far to the next hallmark I wont use it. we once had several stores here and there are rounors about someone starting a new one but I doubt it,  j

0786 Honda crv saga (8/26/2015 9:04:51 AM):  Thanks for the suggestions. I also realized that Costco has an auto buying program, but right now I don't want to go back to the Carson City dealer anyways. So, I looked at the Reno dealer and they have a 2015 White Honda CRV Touring AWD with 121 miles with 'call for price' (not the standard MSRP listed). I feel like calling them and asking what the 'out the door price' would be. DH said last night that the Honda wasn't his #1 option, but he would take it since it was implied we would get a great deal. If my friend calls to today and tries to bawl me out (she is like that) then I will tell her we have never paid MSRP for a car before (and I don't plan on doing it for the Honda). (I don't want to start looking for a new make/model again.) FYI - DH wants a Tesla (electric) SUV, but they aren't even available yet and I am not willing to wait that long. (In the back of my mind I have been thinking the Honda maybe kept for a few years [not our usual forever] and we may buy the Tesla SUV someday.),  Heather, NV

0792 Rental Car (8/26/2015 10:50:37 AM):  I need to rent a car at Orlando Airport Aug 31st 8pm-Sept 10th 6pm, what is the best way to go about this? I have never rented a car before. Can you help me find the best prices? Thanks so much!!!,  Becky IN

0799 Alison/Phoenix (8/26/2015 12:30:24 PM):  Thanks for update on Eli. I will write to them. I first met Eli and Aidan when Cheryl was collecting postcards from different states for the boys' classes. She sends me cards with their pics every year. They are kind of like family.,  Janice/Ok

0821 Job (8/26/2015 3:33:40 PM):  My daughter works part time in retail. She often has to call her job to see if she is needed and other times she is scheduled to work. Today she was called and was asked to come in early and "work" off the clock but she would be compensated for working off the clock. She said she cannot clock in earlier than her set time to start. She said they would compensate her by allowing her a break (which she says she doesn't get while on the clock) or her boss will put her down as working another day/time since the company is very strict on working extra on days you work or something else. Is this legal? I thought no matter what you cannot work off the clock and have to clock in if you are asked to work earlier or stay later than usual. She claims there are signs in the back room saying this is the company policy and they can do this. This just doesn't sound right to me. I also thought if you are an adult your job does not have to allow breaks even if you work over 5 hours. I live in Ohio. Thanks for any info!,  Work hours

0822 From Debbie, OR (8/26/2015 3:50:12 PM):  Ugghhh... Still have this infection. Another 5 days of antibiotics. Drinking lots of water too. The contact woman for the trial if trying to not have me do another CT scan. (Scan needs to be less than 30 days old) Since we applied, before the 30 days, she is hoping that that counts. Also, thanks to Susan and Shanna for the cards and prayer list,  Debbie, OR

0823 Alice (8/26/2015 3:58:35 PM):  Just saw that you were asking about my last name (I get so behind here sometimes) It is Soappman,  Debbie, OR

0824 Bob, PA & Tesla vs Honda CRV (8/26/2015 5:10:23 PM):  I understand that the Tesla isn't cheap (about $70K and up), but comparing that to a 'normal' SUV cost, maintenance, service, fuel, dealing with multiple recalls (like I did with the Toyota Rav4), etc, etc AND the 'cool factor' it might be worth it. Yesterday the first price I was given for the Honda CRV AWD Touring was over $40K which was insane! And I was not willing to pay their price with 'a giant discount' either. ,  Heather, NV

0826 Another officer shot (8/26/2015 5:25:22 PM):  Just saw on the news where another police officer was shot in Sunset, LA. No details on his condition other than "responsive". Man drove his car into convenience store, asked for owner and then barricaded himself in the office. Seems to indicate that officer responding to store was shot. Reports say it was result of domestic dispute and another officer was stabbed at a house. Also that one person is in critical condition at local hospital, but not saying if it is an officer. ,  Susan, LA

0836 Easy quilting project (8/26/2015 6:46:26 PM):  Do any board members quilt? I want to try my hand at an easy quilt but don't know where to start. I have been sewing clothes and for the home since I was a preteen. So I have good sewing skills. I have seen some programs on educational TV like Sewing with Nancy and Quilt in a Day and gone to their websites. Any beginner advice is appreciated. TIA,  Carole H., KY

0840 The way sports should be (8/26/2015 7:53:23 PM):  The Little League game tonight between PA and TX has 35,137 fans. Tickets are free. The grandstand holds 3,000 people, the hill behind the outfield holds over 30,000. The teams travel, lodging, and meal expenses are all paid for by the Little League organization. It takes 100's of volunteers to run a spectacle such as this, but it's sports at it's purest.,  Bob, PA

0846 What's on your night stand (8/26/2015 9:19:04 PM):  I just read the post about the book The Red Tent and wondered what everyone was reading right now. The Red Tent is on my top 10 favs. Right now I'm reading Wisdom's Daughter: A Novel of Solomon and Sheba by: India Edghil I just started it but so far it's a keeper. ,  Melanie, Az.

0856 Mom's house update (8/27/2015 6:40:46 AM):  Background: Mom died in April and I am the executor. The neighbor said he wanted a chance to buy the house (to move his in-laws into). Now: After getting the pest inspection, septic inspection and contractor estimate (we know the bathroom floors need to be worked on) the neighbor and I came to agreement on the selling price yesterday and they are going to buy it 'as is'! They are even willing to let me leave the big items we don't want (frig, washer, dryer, couches, beds, etc) and they will use, donate or junk/recycle. Now I need/want to go over and take in the mountain of small items to be donated (so I can get tax deduction receipts for me and DB and Dsis), make sure there isn't anything else small we want and bring back the big items (piano, hutch and a dresser). If everything goes as planned escrow will be closed before the end of September. That will be a relief.,  Heather, NV

0857 CarMax (8/27/2015 6:46:13 AM):  With the comments yesterday and before I went and checked out the CarMax website (there is now one in Reno). I didn't know they had 'no haggle' pricing (that is a bonus). I was also surprised that they had SUVs with really low miles (less than 10,000) and only a year or two old. A few of the cars that I was looking at are in California, but can be transferred to Reno. I guess I need to call them to find out how that works (i.e. do I have to go to it's current location to test drive or will they transfer it to Reno for me to test drive). ,  Heather, NV

0858 New SUV (8/27/2015 6:55:13 AM):  I am back to square one. Last night DH questioned why I want power seats (which for the new Rav4 requires vinyl seats and the CRV requires leather). I think I want power seats since our current 2007 Rav4 (with manual seats) makes my back / arms extremely hurt versus the 1995 Mercury Villager minivan (which has a power driver seat). Maybe it is a US design versus Japan design which is really the difference. I am realizing that DH really doesn't like the feel of the leather seats (he said they are harder than cloth). So, I may be trading the highest quality rating and gas mileage (Japan design) for a US design (better comfort). I am just happy the deal on the Honda CRV didn't go through. I would hate to own it and then have this discussion.,  Heather, NV

0861 Bob, PA & Honda CRV (8/27/2015 7:07:54 AM):  I don't know about other dealers, but the Carson City one had an 'area adder' of $3,000 on top of the MSRP (which was in the car window, but not on their website even). I was told the Touring model was hard to come by. The one reason I was looking at the Touring model was since it had the power lift gate (i.e. didn't care about most of the other features). Maybe after physical therapy for the pinched nerve in my neck, etc that will not be as big of a requirement.,  Heather, NV

0874 Windows 10 (8/27/2015 9:14:07 AM):  I was wondering if anyone downloaded the new Windows 10 and their opinion of it. I keep getting a pop up to reserve it for free. What are the pros and cons in your opinion? Did you loose any of your bookmarks? What about pics you have on your computer? Email? TIA.,  Barb PA

0878 More prayers (8/27/2015 9:44:45 AM):  My mom is back in the hospital with multiple problems. She got another urinary infection which they were treating at the rehab.However she wasn't improving clinically. Thenher hemoglobin took a dive-she is also being treated for hemolytic anemia. It turns out she has a blood infection probably from her PICC line though that test wont be back till tomorrow, a fungal infection(I'm mot sure where) as well. She is being treated but prognosis is not good. My brother and sil are meeting with palliative care team later today. Then we are having a phone meeting tomorrow. My main question is if we cure these infections how will she be? I have her DNR which she wanted because if she ever survived a resuscitation, she would not have any quality of life. That's what I want to know about surviving these infections.Please pray for her and that we make the right decisions for her as well. Because of the blood infection her PICC line is out so she is getting no nutrition right now.Another strike against her. TIA. As always,to my friends on facebook, please no mention publicly on FB.,  Sue P., CT

This morning when trying to bring up mail, I got this banner that says "this site uses a plug in (Adobe Flash Player) that will soon be unsupported" Should I be concerned? Anything major bad going to happen? If I need to so something about it, what? If you know the answer as to what I need to do, please point me in baby steps. I really have no idea what it means. ,  lost

0901 Sam's Club (8/27/2015 2:19:52 PM):  Sam's Club has to have the rudest bakery workers. I ordered the Sam's membership through Zulily a while back. Went last month to use my "free cupcake" offer. They were out and weren't planning on baking any, "come back tomorrow". So I went back the next day, which would have worked out better b/c they would be one day fresher for my event. We didn't bake any today. So I said next time I would order in advance. My offer is expiring 8/31 and we have another fellowship meal on 8/30. I don't need to have 30 cupcakes in the house so figured this would be the best use of the offer. I went to Sam's to order today (Thursday). There were 4 workers having a conversation about someone who is pregnant. I stood in the opening to the bakery and finally one of them looked up and said, "What do YOU want?" Bit my tongue and asked if this is where I order cupcakes. "When do you need them FOR?" in a very unpleasant tone. I need them Saturday around noon. "We all booked up for this weekend." She then turns back to finish "conversating" with her co-workers. Never asked how many I needed or anything. So I called our other Sam's location to order. Couldn't have been nicer. It means I'll have to drive another 15 miles one way to get them though. ,  Susan, LA

0917 prayers for Brooke & Ryan (8/27/2015 6:18:36 PM):  Please pray for Brooke & Ryan. Brooke is a former coworker and posted on Facebook this morning (on her birthday). They just moved across country and found out when they arrived that the rental house is uninhabitable (so they are temporarily homeless with at least one dog), she is almost eight months pregnant and they think the baby has some health issues (I wondered why she hadn't posted anything for a few months). Her dog (which she had for years) also died a couple of months ago. Brooke was definitely feeling her biological clock the last couple of years so she took a new job (which hasn't turned out as good as she was lead to believer) that would allow them to move back East (closer to family). ,  Heather, NV

0937 Randi, LI & Ford Escape (8/27/2015 11:48:43 PM):  Thank you for the suggestion. I just spent the last hour looking at the 2016 Ford Escape and built a car with a package and options we would want. I then checked the local dealer and they even have one in stock that way (so I am not requesting something really unusual). This maybe the way to go since I can get cloth 10-way power driver seat, power liftgate, Bluetooth cellphone link, and dual temperature control (only options I really want). ,  Heather, NV

0989 need prayers - Mom's house (8/28/2015 5:53:49 PM):  I can't believe I have to ask for this. The neighbor (who wants to buy Mom's house in a town in the Sierra foothills of Northern California) told me today that so far he can't find an insurance agent that will sell them a new homeowners policy 'due to the fire danger in the town being too high'. I am in shock. The last forest fire was a few years ago and it didn't even get near the town. The realtor suggested one agent (I think AAA) so hopefully they come back with good news. I don't know what we are supposed to do if they can't get house insurance. Please pray that they can find insurance (and they can afford it). ,  Heather, NV

All of which help, but not great money makers. What sites do you do to make a little extra? Best way to obtain extra coupons? Where to find refund forms? Ways around the house, electric, phone, etc to save? Meal ideas that save money? Any little tips appreciated.,  Sigh

1031 Advice-freezing pizza (8/29/2015 3:13:23 PM):  Update on my Sam's cupcake saga: Got my cupcakes and pizza today without much problem. They did not have cheese or pepperoni (the only ones eligible for the offer) but I checked before I got in checkout line and there was ONE left. I snatched it! Cashier was amazed that the code on my paper took off price of 30 cupcakes and the pizza. When I told her what it was for, she looked skeptical but entered the code. Told her that it also had $20 gift card which I had already spent. Plus $100 membership for $45. She was happy for me. I had the cupcakes on the front seat so they would be closer to A/C since it was 93 degrees today. The box slid 4 times betweeen Sam's and home. So glad they were in individual little slots or I would have had a royal mess trying to separate frosting. Now what I need advice for. I planned to freeze the pizza but it wouldn't fit in my freezer. So I cut it in half and wrapped each in Glad Press & Seal wrap. Then in foil and putting in freezer bag. Even cut through the cardboard tray. THEN I read "for best results, do not freeze". Just wondering if it's b/c the crust was previously frozen before it was made up, not sure. Has anyone ever frozen one of these before?,  Susan, LA

1046 George Zimmerman, wow (8/29/2015 6:12:10 PM):  George Zimmerman, acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin, is on Twitter, bragging about killing him: ‘We all know how it ended for the last moron that hit me’ Funny how he forgot that he was too weak and fat to fight back without resorting to a firearm, and shot him as a result. He also talks of the KKK. The KKK wouldnt have a Jewish Hispanic.,  Disgusted

1057 Pizza-bumping up (8/29/2015 10:32:42 PM):  Yeah, I thought I still got a good deal even if I don't use the pizza. Hate for it to go to waste but if I baked it, I'd be eating pizza for quite a while since it's just me. That's why I cut it in half to freeze. I figured it would still be good if frozen, defrosted and baked but just not up to "it's best". I thought about using it to supplement the cupcakes and grapes I bought for fellowship meal, but the last 2 times I brought items that required heating (pulled pork and rotisserie chicken), the ladies that worked the kitchen heated them beyond recognition. Almost bought sliced brisket but then remembered my past experiences and couldn't justify spending $25 to be ruined due to overheating. There is a family there with a young daughter and they probably would enjoy a free pizza.,  Susan, LA
