2026 Macy's Coupons (5/10/2017 8:58:50 AM):  Can someone please explain how to print coupons from Macy's. All my printer seems to print is all the other information like the sales and things. Coupons from other places print with no problems but Macy's will not and is confusing.,  Vicki, Va.

2034 USPS (5/10/2017 10:33:26 AM):  I read today that the Post Office is looking for another increase in stamp prices because of a $562 million loss this quarter.,  Vicki J, AZ

2038 How many buckets do you have? (5/10/2017 12:48:52 PM):  I'm sure this is an odd question, but I'm curious. A former co-worker of mine (and current facebook friend) is hosting some carnival games soon to kick off the pee wee baseball season. He posted asking if anyone had 6 buckets that he could borrow for one of the games. I have about 10 buckets. I mostly bought them when Dollar General would have their half-prices sales. Anyway, I offered him my buckets and told him that I thought everyone had several buckets. He laughed and said that he loved it that I considered myself to be normal. We're good friends, so there is no offense at all taken in the conversation. I think "normal" is a subjective term and we all consider ourselves to be "normal" and others maybe are different. It's a broader question than the bucket question, but I'm curious to know how many buckets each of you have. Do you have enough to play a Grand Prize Game (i.e. the Bozo show?) I loaned him 7, but still have a few around the house. I'm talking mop bucket size. Heck, if I consider all of the others I have around the house, I might have 2 dozen (five gallon buckets, sand pails, etc.) Thanks for your responses. I'm curious more than anything else. ,  John B., IN

2041 Weather (5/10/2017 1:35:16 PM):  Hope that we get warmer weather. Monday morning it was 24 degrees and yesterday morning it was 27 degrees. We are normally in the upper 60's for this time of year. My tomato plants need to be put in the ground but not sure if we will get another frost or freeze. I imagine that it has affected the apple trees some. The ground isn't warm enough yet to start many of the seeds, plus we recently had a week of pouring rain and everything still needs to dry out.,  Jackie A., PA

2045 Hummingbirds (5/10/2017 2:19:27 PM):  The hummingbirds have made it to North Central Ohio! Saw my first one this morning. They came last year on May 15th. I didnt have the feeders out and one came buzzing towards me when I was weeding in the front of the house. I went right in and made some sugar water and filled the feeders when it cooled. Only took about 30 minutes for two of them to find it!,  Christie M, OH

2055 Gas Prices (5/10/2017 3:11:15 PM):  Our Gas prices have dropped again. Not sure about Sams which is the cheapest. But Ingles (competitive) is now $1.79!,  Susan, SC

2056 Cell Phone Pictures (5/10/2017 3:12:37 PM):  DIL wants to know is there anywhere she can take her phone to have the pictures printed off of it. She said she did not want to go through the hassle of putting them onto something else to do it. Anyone know?,  Debbie, IN

2058 Key West, a (5/10/2017 3:47:58 PM):  Were thinking of going there 2018. Probably Jan or Feb Is there a lot of to in that area? Or if I could email you, to get some questions answered, that also would be great.,  Thanks for any help.

2068 Joanie in the FL Keys (5/10/2017 5:23:24 PM):  Yes, the vet put Pepper on anti-inflammation medicine. She gets 1/2 a day, but I just realized she didn't get it this morning. Pepper was walking really good this morning so I didn't think about it. About 8:30 am I put her brace on and then she bugged me until we walked out of the house for a 20 minute walk. ,  Heather, NV

2072 Kohls (5/10/2017 5:57:53 PM):  Is there a free shipping code to go with the 30% off code. Thanks,  Rachel MA

2076 Olympics (5/10/2017 6:23:46 PM):  I think I knew but forgot. The news said the winter Olympics start in like 7 months. But they are in South Korea. I can't imagine that being a safe place for the Olympics to be held. They are way too close to North Korea. I still am on edge with my son in Japan with Korea in proximity to that area!,  Susan, SC

2080 How to get your DD214 (5/10/2017 8:18:04 PM):  For the woman who couldn't find her DD214 to do the Lowes 10% deal: https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records,  Mindy W, MD

2083 Some things I've noticed (5/10/2017 11:35:35 PM):  Everyone knows that I was out of the country for most of the past decade. I've noticed a number of changes since my return, most of which I'll avoid discussing because of space constraints. But there are two things I will mention. First, cable TV costs much more than it did when I first left got Korea in 2006. Also, where did all of the convenience stores go? ,  William M FL

2086 Travel to Vegas (5/11/2017 1:22:26 AM):  I would love to ask the experts here about travel to Las Vegas from Austin to Sin City and back after July...for 3 to 5 days. Flight only or full packages. Recommendations please. Where to go...what to do and rent a car or use cabs/Uber, walking is not an option,  RT in Austin,Tx

2087 Kids Dining Perks (5/11/2017 1:27:58 AM):  Someone in my family was given the task/job to create a frequency program for a restaurant that specializes in chicken wings. It is a chicken wing/s bar. We have lots of ideas but want to ask parents and grands everywhere what they like...and what their young ones like. i.e. punch cards for drinks, small toys, books, desserts? We would love to hear your ideas and preferences.,  Texas Gramma

2090 Outrageous actions (5/11/2017 6:41:55 AM):  We had a very disappointing post on FB concerning actions by some members of the graduating class of our local high school. The eloquent tongue-lashing directed at those individuals was posted by a local teacher. Their senior "prank" involved locking bathroom stalls so that teachers had to crawl in to unlock; overturning trash cans with used feminine products; filling toilets with small plastic balls; scattering styrofoam cups and shredded paper; trashing classrooms; spraying lockers with Pam and baby oil and pouring baby oil and Germ Ex on the stairs. A student and a teacher fell down the stairs b/c the baby oil was not visible. They also put teachers' heads on photos of people committing nasty acts and displayed them throughout the school. They also damaged some kind of boards that I never heard of, Promethean or something, which are supposedly several thousand dollars each! Her extremely long post was written from a sarcastic point of view, thanking them for all they did that night. "From the bottom of my heart, thank you for leaving me with a true sense of who you really are and removing the masks you h/b wearing the past 4 years. This morning as the halls are blessedly empty of your presence, I think of what your final parting gift gave me; a new vision of you....You are a generation who feels entitled to everything..." She goes on to say that she is sure her post will upset some "b/c how dare a teacher actually speak her mind." She goes on to say that she w/ probably be reprimanded and that parents will demand that she remove her post, which she will if instructed to do so "just so all of you can see the corruption in our community". This poor teacher was livid, and disappointed in the students she nurtured the past 4 years. In just a few hours, she received almost 700 comments, including a few from the students who were involved. These students slammed her for posting this. Public opinion ranges from criminal charges, community service with no charges, dismissing it as "youthful prank, not vandalism". The School Board is investigating. They are not sure how they gained access. I heard that the valedictorian and several of the football players were involved. What a sad thing for these students to do, and seems like not much remorse. ,  Susan, LA

2092 Food Waste (5/11/2017 7:20:15 AM):  On a TV station we watch they were saying that the average household throws away $40 worth of groceries a week in spoiled food. I said to my husband that I would be throwing away more than I spend on groceries each week. We are a family of 2 and I figure 50 cents a week. How much waste do you figure you throw away a week?,  Jackie A., PA

2115 Dog Food Question (5/11/2017 10:57:50 AM):  I am looking for some help with finding acceptable vegetables, fruits or other items for my 11 year old dog that has kidney stones. The Vet has her on Royal Canine SO Prescription Urinary Food and I also purchased a Royal Canine Urinary Treat. The food is very expensive. Can I supplement this food with anything else? I have googled and searched online but cannot seem to find an answer. Thank for any help you can provide. ,  Vicki J, AZ

2118 Alice Dodge, OR (5/11/2017 11:48:19 AM):  You asked about the family, I thank you for that. DH and DD seem to be ok. DS, however, has been in a funk. I don't know if it's the 14 year old funk, or the fact that has been doing some of DDs chores as she has had a lot of studying, or if its me. He insists nothing is wrong but even his sister has noticed it. He used to talk to Hubby, but now he won't talk to anyone. ,  Debbie, OR

2135 Good Grief (5/11/2017 4:05:47 PM):  I don't know what started the conversation or what we had even been talking about. But I had commented to dh earlier in the week that nothing ever happens till he is gone to work and I am the one who has to deal with it. Yesterday I went to get my sunflower heads from the garage so I could remove the seeds and get them ready to plant. I am talking 15+ big heads. Well, dh had left the garage door up while mowing on Monday. A chipmunk got into the garage. He had a hey day. I had the seed pods stored on the top of a three shelf dealy. He had eaten almost all of them and husks were every where. It took me 30 minutes to clean the mess up. Before I could get that done the water company showed up in my drive. He was turning off the main line in my yard. Someone had run over the hydrant up the road. It was 9:30 last night before they got the water back on. Long past the time I wanted to get a shower and get the yard crud off of me. They opened the hydrant in my yard wide open and washed out one of my iris beds. Today started off with my internet being down. Then when it came back my computer decided it needed to update and you might as well forget using it till it is done. Ugg! And of course after being sunny and 80 yesterday. Today is rainy and 60's so no working outside. Managed somehow to crack the plastic release clip on my sweeper today. Checked on line and you can't just buy the clip they want you to buy the whole wand. Story of my life. Oh, and Comcast has been out today sense 2pm. They said it should be working again by 8pm. I wanted to watch the evening news. Guess that is not going to happen. Be interesting to see what decides to act up tomorrow. Dh will be home at ll:30. Everything should be working fine by then. LOL DIL gets a big kick out of the stuff that happens during my day. I have to laugh with her and tell her she will be in my shoes one of these days. LOL ,  Debbie, IN

2144 training and Chicago (5/11/2017 5:52:52 PM):  DD starts her new job on June 12th in Nevada. She was just informed that for the week of June 19th she has to fly to Chicago for training and orientation. I guess it is a good thing she has flown a few times with us for vacations. I asked if she was going to have to get a rental car and she hopes not since she thinks multiple people will be sent at the same time.,  Heather, NV

2150 Google Researcher (5/11/2017 8:21:52 PM):  Thank you for fixing my bad link, tiny url. I thought I put the entire long link in the box. I promise I was smarter than this when I was in school, LOL!,  Susan, LA

2151 Susan, LA (5/11/2017 8:51:56 PM):  Some of those students you posted about will probably learn a lot from this story http://www.ksbw.com/article/students-uc-santa-cruz-building-takeover-enters-day-3/9606211 This is just incredible they gave them everything they asked for. It is just a matter of a brief time till it happens again somewhere else, over & over & over all across the country.,  SMH

2157 Key West, Fla (5/12/2017 9:03:43 AM):  Is that part of Florida more of a party town? Or is there much to see and do in Key West?,  Lynn

2161 Trip cancellation:( (5/12/2017 10:58:33 AM):  Some of you may remember from back in March when I posted about us booking my aunt's "cancer-free" trip to the Dominican republic thru Apple vacations. It was going to be me, my mom, and 3 aunts (including the one that beat breast cancer last year.) We were supposed to be leaving for the airport tomorrow and flying out on Sunday. Well, my aunt and my mom are quite sick, and we have to cancel. We're all so disappointed (yes, I am a little disappointed). Of course, that's why you get travel insurance. However, I really wanted them to have this time to get away from the stuff here and just relax and enjoy time together. I know that this is not an "end of the world" type of thing and many people have much worse things going on. However, please pray that they get better and that most of all, they are able to do another trip together at some time in the future. Thank you:),  Tricia, MD

2164 Kool Aid points (5/12/2017 11:28:20 AM):  Is there any reason to save these? Would anyone want them?,  Tammy

2170 Fingerhut (5/12/2017 6:01:53 PM):  According to Credit Karma I can build my credit score by opening a Fingerhut credit card. They say buy something, charge it, pay in full when bill comes in. Can't think of a thing I need from Fingerhut, but might consider it. Anyone know if any of the sites Ibotta, Swagbucks, etc has points for opening account too? I am thinking they must get paid to point this out to me, but I could stand a bump up 9 points to next level & needing to buy a car so higher score should be better. Seems like around Thanksgiving they start giving points for opening account, hopefully something now too.,  thanks

2171 Heather, NV (5/12/2017 8:29:25 PM):  What happened to the roommate of your daughter? I kinda remember she might not get teaching job & maybe somekind of health issue. Hopefully health is better & getting a teaching position.,  nosy me

2180 Grandson (5/13/2017 4:07:20 PM):  We went to our oldest grandsons first t-ball game this morning. I forgot how much fun those little ones are. Just watching them sitting in the grass, kicking the dirt doing everything except watching the ball. The coaches sure have their hands full.,  cathy oh

2182 Credit cards (5/13/2017 6:22:17 PM):  The other night my daughter received a call from her credit card company. A card she hadn't used in 2 years was used in another city in the state. She had the card cancelled immediately while on the phone with the company and then she went online and had blocks put on her other 2 cards. She received notice a few hours later another one of her cards had tried to be used in Miami Florida at a gas station but was denied because she had it blocked. She called her credit card company and had all her cards cancelled. She also called the police to report this. She tried to call the one store where the first card was used but they won't give her any info on the person who used it. The police in our county said they can't do anything because it was done in another county and they don't have jurisdiction there. My daughter at first thought a co-worker got her info since a few other employees also have had this happen in the last few months. She claims there is something someone can use to get information without having the card out like a skimmer. Who is out the money when something like this happens? Did the store get the money for the purchases? The money was put back in my daughters account by the credit company. Is it the credit card company who is out the money? Why won't they do anything to find out who did this and go after them? With all the cameras the store does have this person is on camera using the card. It sounds like the person(s) doing this will probably not get caught and be able to do this again with someone else's cards. ,  Card

2183 Travel advice New England (5/13/2017 6:27:37 PM):  If you would like to email please do at rachel_martin_2001@yahoo.com. I'd like to plan an anniversary trip for my husband and I for mid October. We are in our mid 30's- with three kids and busy lives. We'll fly out Wednesday morning, come home Sunday. I was thinking Bar Harbor Maine- it seems like a quaint little coastal town. Would like either something very coastal with lighthouses and lobsters and such or something very "autumn in New England" with pumpkins and cute shops and bed and breakfasts maybe in New Hampshire or Vermont. Any suggestions? ,  Rachel, AR

2187 injections (5/13/2017 7:37:53 PM):  Has anyone had a synvisc injection in their knee before. I have had steriod shots but I think Im past my limit on those.So if someone could give me their opionin I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance,  Becky

2190 Heather: Shunt (5/13/2017 10:50:18 PM):  I will keep Anita in my thought. I was diagnosed with it in 1984. Aren't I lucky? I have never had a major issue with it. There is scar tissue that has encased the tubing and sometimes get headaches from them (that's what the Drs think anyway as I have refused to let them "go in for a look") The headaches last 3 days and have no consistency (ap?) on when they occur. Sometimes it's years in between. They suspect I have had the issue much longer as my head is a bit large for my body. ,  Debbie, OR

2193 Happy Mother's Day (5/14/2017 7:38:45 AM):  Happy Mother's Day everyone! Nothing special is planned here since our daughter lives so far away. After church, I may actually take myself shopping for hubby's birthday present since his birthday is Tuesday. He's had a busy week at work and would like to spend today finishing the custom kitchen cabinets in our new house. It's pouring rain today and not expected to let up. We are so hoping to move in this summer before our 40th anniversary at the end of August. ,  Joanne Vt

2194 Scandal (5/14/2017 7:52:17 AM):  Can anyone fill me in? We apparently missed an episode because Huck appeared dead in a couple of them and then suddenly he is back! I am hoping that someone here can tell me how he came back to life. Thanks for any enlightenment you may have.,  Gayle, OH

2195 website? (5/14/2017 8:22:44 AM):  Hi everyone & to all the mommy's Happy Mommy's Day! By any chance does anyone know of a website similar to You Tube? I want to watch some movies from the 70's without any fees/acct ect/trial . I looked up some but most have acct & fees. YouTube doesn't even have any Thanks Lilli,  Lilli Tetzlaff OH

2196 Need clothing help (5/14/2017 9:20:01 AM):  I usually only wear tee shirts. I like them where the sleeve is long enough to cover my upper arms. I always had heavy upper arms and now since I lost 25 pounds, they look all hangy and crepy. I am down in FL with heat over 80 every day so no long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves. I have searched for elbow length sleeves but found little. Big people stores like Roamans and Just my Size, etc don't seem to care about upper arms because most have short short sleeves. Oh, I live near NO SHOPPING so this will all be done online. Has anybody with this problem found anything? I ordered last month from clothingmonster.com which has awesome designs but because I ordered XL, they are hanging longer than my shorts!! They fit in the bust and good elbow length......guess I better unpack my sewing machine,  Joanie in the FL Keys

2200 Spelling a word pronounced in slang (5/14/2017 10:54:37 AM):  How would you spell the word "pardner" when you want it pronounced in slang? i.e "Mighty Nice o' Ya PARDNER" I was putting that phrase on the front of a thank you card. It was going to someone who had given me a Western style shirt.,  Virginia Ann S VA

2206 Great Gift (5/14/2017 1:09:30 PM):  Got a great gift just before mothers day. My son proposed to his girlfriend and she accepted. Looks like I am getting a wonderful daughter and the family is growing. ,  Vicki, Va.

2212 Church rummage sale (5/14/2017 5:42:10 PM):  Our church just finished it's 7th annual rummage sale yesterday, We start to set up last Sunday, and the actual sale is Thurs- Sat. It is huge! We have always made between 10,000 and 15,000. This year we made 23.000! All our proceeds go towards our missions projects. It is a lot of work but I can't think of another thing we could to raise so much money so quickly. ,  Doreen,Mi

2213 Mothers Day (5/14/2017 5:42:32 PM):  I was able to talk to my deployed son this morning. This evening I was surprised by a delivery of flowers from him. Not quite sure how he arranged that from Japan!!,  Susan, SC

2230 What would you do? (5/15/2017 6:55:14 AM):  I'm in an area rescue squad auxiliary. Our auxiliary president sent an e-message saying the husband of one of our members had died yesterday. The member is in her late stages of Alzheimers. I had thought her husband had been her care giver. But our auxiliary president said her husband was very sick with cancer. And someone else was taking care of our member at home. Plus, that marriage between that couple had been one in name only for a long time! You guys know I like to write custom verses in cards i send to folk. But I don't know what words to say since that woman may no longer be lucid enough to remember that she was even married! Our auxiliary secretary will send a card on behalf of the whole auxiliary. But I'm torn between wanting to send one of my own & letting the group card from our auxiliary secretary be sufficient!,  Virginia Ann S VA

2242 Pressure Cooker (5/15/2017 11:44:57 AM):  I know this has been discussed before, but I am interested in purchasing one of the new style small appliance. Is there a brand that is better than the others? Do you like it? Is it a waste of money. All replies appreciated.,  Sue S., MN

2248 Mother's Day Early (5/15/2017 1:22:03 PM):  Sat evening my younger dd, her dh and Heidi took me to Olive Garden for dinner. Beforehand, we stopped at a new store "Dirt Cheap." They have a lot of returned and discontinued items from Target and other stores. They got a nice expensive comforter set for about $34.00. Meanwhile, Heidi and I sat in the car talking and singing. I decided to teach her the Knock Knock Joke about Banana...then aren't you glad I didn't say Banana....but I started out incorrectly...with orange; before I corrected myself, she said 'THAT'S ENOUGH!" She is so funny!! One day she patted her mom's stomach and told her baby brother Evan that she would see him soon.,  Janice/Ok

2249 More truckers (5/15/2017 1:30:16 PM):  The truckers in our area had a convoy of 595 trucking rigs in their ride for the Make A Wish foundation. They think they will make their goal this year of $450,000 but the final tally is not in yet. The number of trucks in a convoy sets a new Guiness record. It's refreshing to see worthwhile events like this.,  Bob,

2259 Trading Post (5/16/2017 6:18:01 AM):  Is it ever going to be up and running? Can we post things to trade on off Topic? ,  Lynn

2263 YOLO (5/16/2017 9:27:27 AM):  and life is so short. No matter how good you are, how right you do everything, seems you can get smacked down in a second, coming out of nowhere. Horrible news about a friend/coworker that I can't seem to process. Don't know if I want to say srew it..I'll eat what I want, when I want, exercise if I feel like it, etc. Then i think, maybe if these friends weren't so meticulous about their healthy habits it would have happened years earlier. So off I went to the gym. But strill time to stop and smell the roses.,  Sue P., CT

2265 Ebay refund (5/16/2017 9:31:04 AM):  I recently made a purchase at Ebay and since I was not satisfied with what I received I requested a refund at Ebay. My money was immediately refunded and I was told I did not need to return the item. I'm glad I do not have to spend money on postage but extremely confused about why I don not have to return it. I rarely use ebay and this was my first request for a refund. Can someone explain this to me?,  Rose

2269 More on my shopping (5/16/2017 11:09:03 AM):  I think the tops at Catherines are beautiful but most of them start at 1X.....I am at that awkward size.....too small for plus sizes, too big for regular sizes. I usually order an 18 if I have a choice. Those 1X seem to get very wide across which I don't need. I am built like a pear, not an apple. I am a Polack with broad shoulders and a very wide back,  Joanie in the FL Keys

2271 A beautiful story to read (5/16/2017 12:04:55 PM):  With all the negative stuff going on in the world and even in our own personal lives (a good friend and I just met for lunch and commiserated a little), I found this article and had to share. This couple was told they would never have children, and then were surprised to have one child of their own. Still they happily took on a group of 7 siblings!! They went from a family of three, to a family of 10, all in a 3 bedroom house!! These kids spent almost 4 years in the foster care system! What a fantastic story, which just brought tears to my eyes.

2276 Word 2007 files help needed (5/16/2017 1:21:13 PM):  GD saved many thigs in word 2007. She attempted to open them in Win 10 using Office 2013 with no luck. First it told her to pick a language and then that all files are corrupt. Is there any solution for opening these files? Thanks ,  D. Marie Central VA

2280 HAPPY BIRTHDAY JULIE! (5/16/2017 3:01:10 PM):  Happy Birthday to the best friend ever! Julie LOVE YOU!,  Diane, ME

2286 Rummage Price Stickers (5/16/2017 4:58:37 PM):  Are there any stickers to use on clothes that don't fall off at rummage sales? I like to write size, price and the initials of person selling (we have several families involved). I usually use address labels and cut in two, but they tend to fall off.,  Bev, IN

2292 Janome sewing machine (5/16/2017 7:24:33 PM):  Anyone have one and tell me pros or cons? It is a cheapie model but is on Ebay for $75. I've always had a singer. Thanks.,  MO

2296 Teen Party (5/16/2017 8:23:53 PM):  Over the weekend a 16 year old whose parents were out of town had a party. Word quickly spread through Social media and about 400 teens were in the house. Police had to take one unconscious girl to the hospital with alcohol poisoning. The house was completely trashed, cabinets ripped out of the walls, deck walls broken, liquid spilled all over. The cops said the marijuana smell was so thick they had to go outside and take breaks. The case is now in the hands of the prosecutor. She only invited a few people but it got out of hand.

2312 Graduation gift? (5/17/2017 8:45:36 AM):  My friend's daughter is graduating, and we plan to attend the open house. We do not know the graduate, other than her plans to attend a local college (guessing she will live away from home based on distance). Any suggestions for a gift other than gift card/money? ,  Lisa, OH

2321 what to use to cut tip off of tube of decorator fr (5/17/2017 11:00:52 AM):  I had Bill 7 Annette buy me some tubes of decorator frosting in various colors. I tried to cut the sealed tip of the red tube of decorator frosting off with a sharp pair of scissors. It wouldn't cut for me at all! The tubes were Cake Mate decorator frosting. I e-mailed them asking what to use to cut the tip off. Staffer e-mailed to use scissors. But that didn't work for me! What do you guys use?,  Virginia Ann S VA

2322 Air conditioner (5/17/2017 11:47:17 AM):  I had my air conditioner serviced yesterday and the guy said it was low and needed to be recharged. He said it should never need to be recharged and there is probably a leak somewhere. Is he being truthful? I have had it about 15 years and it was recharged years ago and that guy never said anything about a possible leak. ,  AC

2325 Vickie-Janome (5/17/2017 1:25:12 PM):  The Model is 2139N-this one must be the bottom of the line!! Appreciate the info. My Singer does that too but it is the Walmart Black Fri special. Years ago I had a Viking that was really expensive but it was always in the shop for adjustment!! Finally passed it to my mom who used it to sew layettes and blankets for the missions. She wore it out!! Hoping Janome would be better as far as adjusting so much so I didn't have to tinker with it & just sew. Thanks.,  MO

2339 Cobra / health insurance (5/17/2017 5:57:48 PM):  The company DH works for was sold on Monday @ midnight. He didn't get the paperwork from the new company to sign us up for health insurance until Monday afternoon. So, as of now we don't have insurance cards and I am not sure when we will get them. So, what do we do if we have an emergency? Do we show the old insurance cards or any ideas? I don't like the idea of running around with no health insurance card....,  Heather, NV

2353 White bucket/container? (5/18/2017 6:01:15 AM):  Any thoughts on where to purchase decorative buckets/containers? These are for a graduation centerpiece, and we will need 17 of them. They will hold a blanket, T-shirt, and photo book, so can't be too small. The less expensive the better (of course!). Graduation is Tuesday, so local is probably better - we have a full range of stores in the area - Michaels, Target, Lowes, Menards, etc... Thanks for any help!,  Lisa, OH

2366 Sweet! (5/18/2017 10:22:57 AM):  We live near Kings Island amusement park, and get passes every year. I try to take each of my kids by themselves each year. We go right after school so the crowds aren't bad, and then they get to choose where we go to dinner. Last night I took my 11-year old. He held my hand all around the park. It was so sweet. It was nice to have a one-on-one conversation with him - no one else interrupting, and a very relaxed environment. I took him to Maggiano's after - we don't usually get that fancy, but I declined last year, and decided to consent this time! It is my daughter's turn today (she is 9). She had a messy room and a ton of laundry to do, and I told her it had to be clean before I would take her. She really focused and got it all done yesterday, which was amazing! Nice to know the kids really do enjoy/appreciate/look forward to our time :),  Lisa, OH

2367 Strawberries (5/18/2017 11:09:53 AM):  I don't know if I was the only one who didn't know this but I just found something out that I wanted to share. I have always stored my strawberries in the fridge in the container they came in. Even after giving some of them away I always seem to end up throwing a lot away because they start to decay fast. Almost 2 weeks ago I bought some for the first time since I came back to WV for the summer and about 3 days later my son was visiting and I decided to send some with him for his family. I gave about 2/3rds of the box away and so I grabbed a pound plastic cottage cheese container and put the ones I was keeping in that. I thought about them yesterday and thought "oh, those will be so bad I will have to just toss them". Well last night my husband finished up the watermelon I had chunked up and he told me this morning that he left me a butter container with some in it. I grabbed the first container I saw expecting it to be watermelon, but it was the strawberries and they were PERFECT, like I had just bought them yesterday!! I was soooooo surprised!! I just gobbled every single one of them and they were delicious. You can bet I will be storing my strawberries in a covered plastic container from now on! I also didn't wash them before I put them in the container. If you wash them immediately the water might cause them to decay in the container. Just wanted to let someone else know if they are having that problem too.,  Sandy WV

2374 Vicki J, AZ & DH's job (5/18/2017 1:09:33 PM):  DH's company was sold and they had to sign a contract a few days before it was official so we semi-knew it was coming, but didn't know the date. So, we know about vacation, etc. As of Monday night he turned in the information about which health insurance plan he wanted and our social security numbers, etc. What we haven't heard yet it WHEN it takes affect and when we will get cards. To add to the concerns is we are going away for a few days so the cards might arrive while we are gone, etc. I know from experience that if we have a problem we can buy Cobra later and have it dated back to Monday. I just hate the unknown concerning health insurance.,  Heather, NV

2375 Lisa OH buckets (5/18/2017 2:04:44 PM):  Lisa, I know you gave us short notice on the bucket ideas, so this might not be an option for you. There is a bakery near my sis in IL that sells their white frosting/filling buckets with lids for $1 each. It's hit or miss whether they have some, but when they do, they have a 5 gallon size (approximately) and a smaller one like a mop bucket. I was lucky enough to get some last summer. I use them to store bags of sugar and birdseed. If you have a bakery/donut shop nearby, might be an option for you.,  Paula T. TN

2383 World Travelor (5/18/2017 7:22:49 PM):  Our son messaged us to call him when we got up. This kind of freaked me out. He never does this. (he's in Japan as a Marine so 13 hours difference in time) So my first thought was holy cow, they've been bombed by Korea. But no, thank goodness. He called to say he's been reassigned. He leaves in two weeks on a destroyer (ship) for five months. He'll be traveling South to Australia, New Zealand, Guam, and some other ports. He's very excited to travel and see the world. He's also happy to leave Japan for the summer since it's very humid there. Then will return to Japan in October to continue that assignment. Our next door neighbor boy (his childhood friend) is Army and leaving in June for Germany and then for Kosovo. My best friend has a son in the Navy. He also is leaving in 3 weeks for overseas but has yet to find out where he's going. Ahh...to be young again!!,  Susan, SC

2390 Suitable container for 2 scones (5/19/2017 7:54:31 AM):  I'm planning to make 2 or 3 different flavors of scones for a fund-raiser bake sale the last Saturday in June. I like to package my baked goods attractively so they "sell" well. I used to be able to order a small plastic square tray with see through domed lid that held 1 scone. But I don't find it on the Web any more. Can some one else suggest something else I could order on the Web? I will have a decorative sticker label on each package to identify the flavor of the scones.,  Virginia Ann S VA

2394 Cobra Health Insurance (5/19/2017 9:16:35 AM):  If your husband's company changed hands in mid-month, doesn't that mean you old health insurance would go to the end of the month? I don't know anybody who can cancel their insurance mid month....but then again, I have never been HR in a company. You can also email your new company and get something with your new insurance and your new ID # on it. When I moved to Medicare, they screwed up for the first 2 weeks of the month and they emailed me everything,  Joanie in the FL Keys

Neighbor man came and used the snow blower on the sidewalk-as we only have 24 hours to get it cleared off or the city will do it and send you the bill! It was to heavy and wet so neighbor man went home and got his snow shovel to finish the drive. Just talked to my kids in WY. they have 5 ft. drifts-and still snowing. Only in Colorado. Hope you are all safe and warm. Have a great weekend. Jeri,  Jeri/Co

2419 Karen-IA & DH's insurance (5/19/2017 8:49:01 PM):  Karen- You are thinking the same as us - carry the old cards for now. DH said our new insurance is official as of Tuesday morning, but he doesn't know when the cards will arrive. If there is an emergency we will provide the old cards and then get a hold of someone to find out the new insurance information and pass it onto the hospital, etc. And it sounds like there isn't a way to print temporary cards...,  Heather, NV

Like Anna said, it's fun to look for pieces in thrift stores, yard sales, etc. I just looked at my tray and it is so adorable. It is an off-white long rectangle with large pale green polka dots, and 3 sketches with French words under each: a cafe style chair, a matching table and a baguette.

2481 When you took SS? (5/21/2017 6:56:11 AM):  I retired at 57 and my DH had retired at 54, 5 years earlier. We had always planned to go out early so we both took our SS at 62. Most financial planners say to take it at 62 instead of hoping you live long enough to make it worth taking at a later age. Of course, if you want to work, you go for it. But if you are thinking only about money and waiting for the "bigger" money, you are gambling that you won't die before it becomes worth it,  Joanie in the FL Keys

Back then if you weren't married early people called you an old maid. I waited for the right person to marry; the one God wanted me to marry. We will be married 44 years Aug 2. My oldest grandson is 22; the youngest is waiting to be born. I doubt I will see him graduate or his sister get married, but I am glad to be their grandmother. Once an elderly lady asked me and my best friend (a girl) when we were going to get married and I told her we were just friends. :) My dad said I should have said "look who you had to marry to keep from being an old maid!!!!!",  Janice/Ok

2598 Schools Out/But I'm Not (5/23/2017 2:39:25 PM):  I am working on my second day of 7 days of my contract since I get paid by the hour instead of the day like the certified teachers. I have been shredding papers for two days, but I don't mind. I am just biding my time until my grandson decides to come!,  Janice/Ok

What are the opinions ???,  Nancee J, IN

2609 Bacon spray (5/23/2017 7:38:35 PM):  I was cooking tonight and it occurred to me that with all of the foods out there, how come there isn't a bacon-flavored spray. Afterall, there's a butter spray. Just a thought, not a sermon (that phrase comes from a radio commercial).,  Mindy W, MD

2631 Need some help (5/24/2017 9:43:32 AM):  What is a retagged mobile home, anyone know? We have tried to find info on it and haven’t had any luck. We are considering buying a mobile that has been ‘retagged’ (the owner’s words) When we asked how old it was he said he would have to find the paperwork but it had been 'retagged' 5 years ago when he did a $35,000 major renovation.,  Dee, Wa

2638 oriole feeders (5/24/2017 12:22:17 PM):  Does anyone have one of these? What brand is it and how does it work?? We have been having a few birds show up, not sure if it was worth getting a feeder or not. Do you use fruit, grape jelly or liquid?? TIA!!,  cheryl ny

2641 Menu (5/24/2017 1:44:24 PM):  When the attendees come to the hotel on Sunday, June 4 and check into the hospitality room they will have snacks like pretzels, chips, dip, etc. To drink they will have soda, beer, and wine. This will start at 3:00 PM. At 6:00 PM they will have more substantial food. The lesson learned here was that men are not good for selecting food for a group, at least not this man. Help came that consisted of a wife of a sailor who had passed away and my DW. The food that they will have is wraps, petite sandwiches, pasta salad, tossed salad with three types of dressing, a pickle tray with assorted pickles, and a cookie tray. The cost $650.xx We have 50 people coming. Five couples who normally come could not come due to health problems. Every year some of our members pass away, so our group keeps shrinking.,  Bob, PA

2645 lilli, oh... (5/24/2017 4:10:13 PM):  you asked why no bacon beer? rest assured, there is such a thing! i've bought it for my husband, the beer lover; he likes bacon well enough, but said he wasn't a big fan of the two flavors, beer & bacon, mixed. i'm the bacon lover of the family - everything tastes better with bacon on it to me!!,  donna in norcal

2651 vacation plans through New England (5/24/2017 8:28:15 PM):  Mid-June my husband & I are planning a week vacation at Island Falls, Maine. We are in the process of making our driving route plans (starting in Va on I-81 north). Do you have suggestions for "must-see" or highly recommend while we are traveling? Once at the resort we will probably make a few day trips to Canada and/or ocean. Or we may return home along the coast and spend a night or so extra driving home. Maine will be the 50th state for my husband to visit --one more thing off our Bucket List! ,  Helen in VA

2663 Halo Top ice cream (5/25/2017 11:48:03 AM):  Has anyone here tried this new ice cream? It is kind of expensive, about $4.50 for a pint. It looks like the price could be justified. There is 240-360 calories in a whole pint. I can easily eat a whole pint out of boredom over the course of a day. It has organic stevia and Erythritol in it. I heard of stevia, but not Erythritol. They claim those are 2 natural sweeteners that don't affect blood glucose or cause bloating. It appeared sometime ago on my Ibotta list & thinking I might want to try it. Just wondering if anyone here already has.,  Susan L, AZ

2664 picture frame (5/25/2017 11:58:52 AM):  I am looking for something I can "see in my head", but never in a store. I want a double non-glare glass photo frame that would sit on a table. My granddaughter graduates today from high school. Her graduation announcement is a cap & gown photo on 1 side & on other, it gives her name, high school info & that she was accepted into Arizona State University to pursue engineering. :) So I want something you can see either side. Also need smaller 1 for a memorial card for best friend of my son. :( Are there picture frames made like that?,  Susan L, AZ

2673 picture frame (5/25/2017 1:21:25 PM):  Susan L, AZ I've only seen a side by side picture frame that's hinged in the middle. You'd need 2 copies of the photo announcement. One copy would go in the left frame. While the reverse side of the 2nd announcement would go in the right frame. What would work better for your needs is to buy sheets of clear acrylic at a store that sold custom made mirrors & clear table tops. I would buy scrap sheets of the clear acrylic. Those sheets were at least 3/8" thick. I'd then have my now late Dad cut them the size I needed. Then have him drill holes in the 4 corners when those sheets were stacked 2 together s the holes lined up. Place one copy of the photo announcement in between each layer of acrylic. The screw in a flat decorative head screw in each hole to hold the 2 sheets of acrylic together. Your screws need to be 1" long/ You'll then be able to see both sides of the photo announcement when the block is standing up!. I used to be able to find those flat decorative head screws at a hardware supply store at had been in business since the 1940's!,  Virginia Ann S VA

2677 Clemson Bound (5/25/2017 2:02:18 PM):  My youngest son (by 6 minutes) just got his invite in the mail today to go to Clemson University in the fall. He has completed two years at a technical college while working 25 to 30 hours a week at Walmart. At this point he is completely debt free. So very proud. He now has most of his basic classes taken and can work on his major (computer science).,  Susan, SC

2681 Our Molly (5/25/2017 2:57:19 PM):  Molly our pittie just started doing this. If my hubby gets up in the middle of the night. Before he can go back to bed he has to go pet and love her and talk baby talk to her. If he doesn't she will lay outside of our bedroom door and whine until he gets up and does it. ,  Vicki, Va.

2698 lightweight small paper trimmer (5/26/2017 10:24:57 AM):  My late Dd usually asked me what I wanted for Christmas, unless he was getting me jewelry, In my late 30'2 or early 40's I said I could use a large sized paper trimmer. He had me buy the one I wanted. then i gave him the receipt for it! I'm now sorry I got one that was so huge! It's 24" wide by 18" back to front. And it's a guilletine style. My brother stores it at his house. And when i need to use it, he brings it over to my house. It's too heavy for me to lift it any more! Does any one use a smaller size paper trimmer, i.e. about 9" x 12" size, that they like? And where would i search online for one? I don't live near any office supply stores or craft stores. So I'd have to order it online. I'm not crazy about cutting my craft paper with an X-acto knife. I have to put a piece of thick cardboard underneath the paper to avoid putting any cut marks on the table or counter surface!,  Virginia Ann S VA

2699 Teresa/Joanie (5/26/2017 11:24:47 AM):  Teresa I also have a long hair Chihuahua that has me wrapped around her tiny paw and is totally spoiled rotten. You should see her go through her little act for me to continue rubbing her stomach. Joanie we do have a Yorkie who starts out sleeping on our bed but has a favorite spot under our bed that she eventually goes to. I said after the yorkie no more pets in my bed. Molly our pit bull weighs 75lbs. So there is no way she is getting in our bed. I can almost assure you that I would be wedged between her and my hubby because she would take my part of the bed and my pillows and she would not budge one bit. Love them all but they are a rotten bunch!,  Vicki, Va.

2701 Memory Foam (5/26/2017 11:29:40 AM):  I need to purchase a new mattress soon. I do not want to purchase online since I prefer to go to the store in order to feel which mattress has the comfort I am looking for. Doing some research on line I found several offers for mattresses with memory foam however I have never had one. Can someone tell me the good of a memory foam mattress? Are their any disadvantages? ,  TIA
