Re: Political observation

I don't really know about mail-order. Right now, my local pharmacist is mailing the kids' prescriptions to them at college, though!

Re: On another note

If you do this with excel files, I hate you.

I've never, ever done that. And now I'll know better. The stuff I do is mainly text, and I don't want anyone to change it.

Re: Political observation

No Walgreens. I think there are pharmacist owned pharmacies in the CVS stores. Big debate about whether this has resulted in higher or lower prescription prices. There was a lot of concern that if it passed, the small town pharmacies, which typically [more]

Re: On another note

I LOVE Word Perfect. I can do a lot of desktop publishing tasks that I'm unable to do on Word. I LOVE reveal codes. And, yes, I have a lot of documents in Word Perfect. When we first had computers at work, everyone was required to use Word Perfect, [more]

Re: My annual Halloween money saving tip.

At noon, I went and bought 72 full-sized Hershey bars! I remember which houses had full-sized Hershey bars when I was a trick or treater, some 50 years ago, and it only seems right to make that my tradition!

Re: Theraflu and Nyquil?

I just recently recovered from the crud, and I found Theraflu much better than Nyquil for overnight stuff. Store brands, of course!!

Vacation starts tomorrow. DH and I are off on a Mediterranean cruise! A couple years ago, I went on a cruise my Mom was given by Anderson Cooper. She ended up deciding against the cruise at the last minute, so I went alone. DH has wanted to go on a [more]

Re: Rent-a-puppy

I would love to have that option.

My daughter, who struggles with mental health issues, goes to the pet store just to look at puppies and kittens some days. She says she can't imagine being friends with anyone who doesn't go to the pet [more]

Re: Things that are currently annoying me

When my first marriage ended, I found out there was no savings account, but I was still contributing half of my paycheck to it each month. The other half was used for household stuff. But, I had no ownership in the house.

An Open Letter

To the young man who interviewed for a law clerk position Monday:

You paid $20 to overnight a thank you note? It was sent three days after the interview. I'm thinking you're lacking in common sense. You didn't get the job. Next time you [more]
