Re: stabilizing an empty home for extended perio

The types of coverage suspended can vary from 1 policy to another. Under some policies, the entire policy becomes void. Under some others only Theft, Vandalism and Malicious Mischief coverages are suspended. There also is a pretty typical [more]

Re: Phrases I am sick of hearing

I am so "OCD" or "Bipolar" or "Schitzo" or "insert serious mental illness used as hyperbole/humor".

I just again looked at how much leave I have left until the end of the year. I was doing this so to make a decision to take tomorrow off from work. It's an easy decision now. I have two weeks of leave left and only one week committed. If I take off [more]

Re: Just Saved $20 a Month

Yes, we all do that. As soon as cable raises prices, threaten to go to Direct/Dish and price goes back down.

I take a different approach. I don't threaten any company. I just call and ask for the procedures for disconnecting my [more]

Re: You need a keeper

If it's who I think it is, I put him on ignore years ago. I think it's performance art.
