Re: Things that are kind of hard for me to deal

I don't give anyone my cell phone number at work, for fear they'll call me after hours.

I solve that problem by having a work cell phone that my employer provides and a personal cell phone. That way, I can ignore my work cell phone [more]

See, here's the thing. It doesn't matter why the OP has decided that gas or propane won't work for her. The only thing that matters is that it won't. She doesn't have to justify it to anyone, and she shouldn't have to defend her choice as it is her [more]

Re: Things that are kind of hard for me to deal

I plug headphones into my cell when I work from home and have a conference call. It works better than my desk headset.

But what do you do for conference calls in the office? That's where the desk phone and headset helps, especially [more]

Re: Things that are kind of hard for me to deal

I am shocked that we still have desk phones honestly.

I mostly use my desk phone for conference calls. We all have headsets so that we can do calls from our desk while being handsfree and able to type for note taking, which we do in [more]

Re: Guardianship

In a recent guardianship hearing for my mom, we were allowed only one guardian - with one alternate. The alternate has zero authority unless the original guardian abdicates for any reason.

IRS sending demand letters a week early

DH had a moment of panic yesterday when he got the mail, and opened a letter from the IRS demanding a very large amount as our 2014 remaining tax liability plus a late-payment penalty plus interest. It seems someone at the IRS was a bit too [more]

Re: A race to a verdict

So far as the Boston bomber goes, it's a hard choice. You're dealing with someone who was apparently brainwashed from an early age to engage in the activity he was found guilty of. However, at his still relatively young age, is there hope for any [more]

Yes, but that is a separate deliberation, and will start next week. I would expect that to take longer than this verdict because I think they have [more]

Maybe I missed it...what's the shower floor? Solid surface would be slippery.

Re: A race to a verdict

Boston has two major trials going on at the same time. And both juries are now deliberating. It should be interesting to see which one comes in first, Hernandez (for murder) or Tsarnaev (Marathon Bombing).

Solid surface can be nice also if you're talking something like Silestone or even marble/granite.

I should have been more clear in my response. I can see that the truck loan has the Memorized Payee button enabled, and that loan works properly. The mortgage, however, has the Reminders button checked instead, and although I keep changing it to [more]

Re: how do I memorize a Loan payment

Thanks. I've actually done all of that, and it doesn't work.
