Re: Xmas

1) New stockings for the kids and T. Mine is one my grandmother made me; the kids' and T's are all cheap-o ones I ran across at the time I needed them. I'd like to upgrade all of them.

Re: Voluntary giving lol

It's rather surprising. It's pretty much ignored here unless someone does something active, like my friend questioning the prayer at a high school event.

I'm more of an agnostic than atheist and not vocal. My friends are not church goers. [more]

Re: Voluntary giving lol

Re: Ethicality debate on E-Bay

The VitaMix was just an example. We didn't have to return that one. We got it at Costco a few months ago. It did in fact go on sale just last month, but it was too late (i.e. outside the guarantee window). I think we paid $350 or so (don't have the [more]

Re: Ethicality debate on E-Bay

Yes. Several stores offer a 30 day price guarantee. Costco, for example. If I buy something in June and then it appears in their July coupon book, they honor it. I just bring in the receipt. I think Walmart does (though I'm not sure since I don't go [more]

Re: Ethicality debate on E-Bay

I will do what is described within the same store. Most stores seem to offer "price guarantee", so it isn't necessary.

One time a retailer wouldn't honor a sale price they had on an item about a month after we had purchased the [more]

I just learned this:

Did you know that if you've marked your white board with permanent marker, you can color over it with erase marker and it cleans it all when you wipe it. May take more than one application.

Re: Vermont Apparently Abandons Single-Payer

If the new program is brought on-line so would whatever taxes (revenues) are needed to pay for it. So, yes, the state budget MUST increase. That's obvious. As long as the cost to taxpayers is roughly equal to what they pay now (between premiums, [more]

Really? How many upper middle class or higher income families use layaway at KMart? It isn't impossible, just not highly probable. Upper middle class could use cash, but would more likely just use a credit card. [more]
