    Massive Stimulus Package For Americans Proposed

    I think a lot of people are thinking that way. And how are people supposed to make their mortgage payments if they can't work through no fault of their own? Our utility company is suspending shut offs due to non-payment for several months. Why aren't banks doing the same? Sending people...

    Is Anyone Else Having Difficulty Concentrating at Work?

    This afternoon, all my co-workers and I did it seemed like was talk about the corona virus pandemic and its various effects on people and things. Every hour it seemed like something new was canceled, meetings, schools, you name it. We talked about the stock market, about what we stocked up on...

    Dating After 50

    I think this may be more common than one would think. My daughter's in-laws went through this very thing. Her mother-in-law was dying and told her husband to marry their long-time friend of the family. He did, not very long after she died. I was invited to their house for a holiday and went...

    @mikermeals Not sure at this point. Might not be until after the election.

    Market Volatility

    These things are already starting to happen. Stores are running out of toilet paper, paper towels, disinfectants, etc. At work, I've had to cancel several of my co-worker's travel arrangements because of canceled meetings. We went over our pandemic plan at all the different levels. We are in...

    As a senior what do you not want any longer

    About 25 or so years ago, I thought I wanted a bigger wedding ring set. I was 20 and my hubby was 21 when we got married in the late 70s. We didn't have anything except each other and consequently, he had to sell his '75 Charger in order to have enough money to buy my ring. It has very...

    WHO advice and updates on Coronavirus website

    Ever since the media outlets started their 24/7 coverage, the quality and type of news has changed. They don't just report news, they pretty much create it. Gotta keep those ratings up, ya know.

    Alzheimer Taxes?

    @ aunt bea "The IRS may try to bump up the failure to file to income tax evasion and that could land you in jail but jail is cheaper than a nursing home so it might be a good move. " You know, this is funny and sad at the same time.

    Alzheimer Taxes?

    I wonder, though, what happens to people, either through medical conditions or age that just don't realize they need to do taxes? Does the government "come after them"? What happens to them in the long term? How do governments handle this type of thing in countries other than the US?

    Alzheimer Taxes?

    I was talking to a co-worker about how he is helping his father-in-law, who has memory problems, with his taxes. It was painful to say the least, since the man is a veteran and there are a lot of forms, accounts, power of attorney, etc, etc. to have to take care of to get his taxes done. It...

    Wearing sneakers to school.

    In elementary school, we were not allowed to wear tennis shoes, as we call them around here. Those were strictly for gym class. I was told once that we could only wear them in gym because otherwise we would track in gravel that would scratch the finish on the shiny wooden floor. By the time I...

    Have You Started Your Taxes Yet?

    Because we have rental properties our taxes are more complicated than they used to be. We use a cpa. Hubby keeps track of all the receipts, statements, etc. on the business that we need. He has spread them out on the (seldom used) dining room table right now, sorting things out to send in...

    How Many of You Remove Your Shoes When You Come Inside or Have House Shoes?

    I always take my shoes off when I walk in the door. I almost always come in from the garage. So does my husband and daughter. It keeps the carpet a lot cleaner that way. I understand that it's a hassle to do that so I don't ask guests. The bad thing about this is that I always have a...

    Gender stereotyping

    Exactly. And this goes not only for entertainment, it goes for girls sports as well, even at the middle school and high school level. Have you ever seen girl's volley ball shorts? Tighter than tight. And yet the guys wear these ugly, baggy to their knees shorts for their sports. Talk about...

    J.C. Penny..

    I'm surprised that J.C. Penny's is still hanging on. Always have liked their bedding, sheets and towels. I love their white sale in January. Will miss that when they finally close.

    Have You Ever Ordered A Fake Meat Burger?

    I gave it a shot. Tried the fake meat burger at Burger King. I thought it tasted pretty good, but won't eat one again. I don't like the ingredients and the over processing. Give me the beef.

    My dear dog passed away yesterday morning

    That is such a hard thing to have to go through. Our pets wrap themselves around our hearts and we miss them terribly when they are no longer with us. I am so sorry for your loss.🐶
