    Cordedi handheld vacuum wanted

    I searched Amazon and many stores and can't find a reliable one. I bought one at Penneys and returned it when it would not recharge battery. Cordless vacs last only 10 minutes at. a time. Also I have cat fur around. Less than $80. 00. The joke is that they suck. You use one you recommend?

    Who can help me decide on a hand-held pet-hair vacuum?

    I, too, am looking for a inexpensive handheld vac, cord or no cord. Strong suction. Bought and returned one that would not even charge the battery. Don't trust Amazon reviews.

    The Ernest Hemingway Documentary on PBS

    What Do You Think of the Motley Fool?

    Virtual Reality Helps Senior Loneliness & Mental Health Using Recent Immersive Technology

Places that help seniors are making nice profits, too. Second, I have read about the connection of loneliness to health and heart since the early 80s in...

    Ever have tipping remorse?

    No. Tipping is for personal service only. Yes it is expected as if it is required part of the bill. Once I did not leave a tip for coffee at a cafe and the next day the same waitress charged me a quarter more for the same coffee. How petty. I never went back. Florida.

    Do you remember searching for soda bottles?

    Yes. 2 cents for a pop bottle and 5 cents for a quart. Then I could buy a candy bar or soda for 10 cents. The bottles were dirty even with ants. I forgot about that. Imagine telling kids today this!! Movie was 25 cents where I lived. I also stole cigarettes.
