    declutter

    There are people who drive around neighborhoods looking for old appliances put on the curb. They take them apart and sell the metal for scrap. When my mom was replacing her old stove, my husband hauled the old one out to put it in his truck to take to the landfill. Someone driving by stopped...

    A Young Member Of Your Family Is Thinking Of Joining A Police Force......Your Advice?

    I have an uncle who retired from a Chicago police force. It caused a lot of marital problems between him and my aunt the whole time. Seeing so much of the "bad" side of humanity made him suspicious and pessimistic, even today, 20 years after retirement from the force. Their son also became a...

    If you are a female, don't park next to a white van. (?)

    While I'm not worried about being abducted for slavery and no one wants MY body parts, younger people could be in danger. I doubt that the color of the vans have anything to do with it. I've always been aware of things going on around me while in public, since there were two abduction attempts...

    RMD - good or bad idea?

    I think you've made a good plan Squirl. Why not pass some inheritance on to the next generation early? We're a little younger than 70, but have been looking into converting IRAs into Roth IRAs, so that our heirs can have it sooner rather than later. We will have to pay income taxes on the...

    Sciatica

    My husband once had sciatica in both legs at the same time. He had to use a wheel chair until he got better. It was hard for him to live life on wheels, but he learned a lot about limited mobility. He hasn't had sciatica since. I have a back/waist heating pad that has a water bottle in it...

    Where are my keys?

    One time we were in a parking lot and saw two women trying to unlock the car with a clicker that wasn't working. After a few minutes my husband went and told them that they had a key to the door, too. Funny how people forget about the entry key. Sometimes it is hidden in the clicker, but they...

    Tele-Sales

    When my husband gets a live person scam caller he likes to mess with them. He got one the other day telling him that the extended warranty on his vehicle had expired. He acted all excited and told her he needed another one. When she asked about the car, he told her it was a 1963 Studebaker...

    Do You Still Have Goals and Aspirations?

    I'm still searching for that perfect retirement house. We've been on this quest for more than a year without any luck. After the holidays we will start renovating our current home. I, too have been in the process of downsizing "stuff". Why does it seem that we spend the first 30 years of...

    Dolphins drag British girl, 10, underwater during 'ethical' swimming experience in Mexico

    You are always taking a risk when you enter the habitat of another creature. That being said, I've swam with the dolphins in Cozumel, too, and had an amazing experience. The area the dolphins are kept in is a large fenced area of ocean. They were not caged at any time. The dolphins seemed to...

    Handicapped sign

    In my state, people get handicapped hang tags from their Doctor or can go to the courthouse and ask for them. When we were in Hawaii at a popular destination we watched a van parked in a handicapped space with a hang tag, load up with able bodied young people, driven by a doctor. Having been...

    How the mighty have fallen

    I agree with you. Our local malls started declining when the gangs were allowed to move in and loiter in the common areas of the malls. Shoppers no longer felt safe being there and stopped patronizing the businesses. The gangs and friends weren't buying anything, either. Some people were using...

    Europeans Smarter Than North Americans?

    We don't shop for presents, but we do give cash to the kids and they spend it, so it's the same thing without the returns involved. My husband went out on Black Friday to buy himself some things yesterday. There weren't that many people out and he was able to get bargains on things he wanted...

    Anyone Use An Air Purifier Just To Sleep??

    I have several portable Honeywell air purifiers throughout the house. I keep a medium sized unit in my bedroom. I have it on all day, but turn it off at night while sleeping, because it tends to make the room too dry. All units make the air smell cleaner and have helped reduce my asthma...
