Re: Mr. Robot 082615

THAT was not the season finale. They yanked it until next week because of violence and today's killings in Virginia.

IIRC, a season finale of Buffy was postponed due to the Columbine shooting in 1999.

There was also a movie [more]

Re: HR genius

My guess was 4: 0', 300', 600', 900'.

That was my guess too.

Now if you are supposed to test the center of each segment then it's 150', 450', 750', for 3 tests.

Not a mullet. Greasy ponytail with front receding hairline...

Re: OT: Chiropractor

Kind of funny to read how LBYM goes right out the window when it comes to a pet. I was going to make comments, but I decided it better to not be overwhelmed with hate replies.

For me the money spent on my dog's healthcare was worth [more]

Re: Need some moving advice - PODS?

I am posting without knowing if you are selling the house. If you are, your Realtor would likely be able to help you. When we moved from Atlanta and when we moved from NJ, I wrote a check and the Realtor scheduled the [more]

Re: Need some moving advice - PODS?

Is the issue you're afraid the moving company might get to your new location before you do?

Very perceptive, yes that is one of the main issues. Once the truck is loaded, I will need a day to clean out the house, have the carpet [more]

I have no way of knowing whether her experience is typical, but since you asked, I thought I'd share.

Thanks for sharing. I have a lot to think about for all the options and even second-hand experience is helpful.

Re: Need some moving advice - PODS?

I wouldn't use them to transport fragile items. We used them for storage for awhile. It worked out okay, but the locks are not that sturdy. They appear to be relatively easy to break into. After researching them, I decided not to use them for the [more]

Need some moving advice - PODS?

Has anyone here used PODS to store/move? I may be moving in the next few months and am exploring different scenarios. I plan to do a direct move (no stop in storage).

The main limitation is that at the time of the move I may not have a [more]

My dog last year got an orthopedic MRI, then a neurological MRI, and went for physical therapy sessions and a couple acupuncture treatments.

Re: Osteoporosis/osteopoenia

But last time it was, my Vit D was 21.5 (a bit low) - as a result I take a liquid D w/K2 supplement, several drops (at 1000IU/drop) almost every day.

I have low Vit D too and was wondering if you got retested after taking the [more]

Re: Calif rental question

The gist of the matter is that the new landlord steps into the shoes of the current landlord. All contracts verbal and written continue to be binding. If the contract states tenancy ends with change of ownership, it does, otherwise, the tenancy is [more]

Re: Hugging in baseball...and Kissing??

Because of Altuve's short stature (5'5"), it looked like a dad kissing his little kid on top of the head.

That (Altuve's height) is probably why he did it.

Please write a short letter to your doctor's office saying exactly what you did in your post. The doctor needs to know both about that employee's behavior and that the office has accessibility issues for someone in a wheelchair. Both [more]

Calif rental question

IIRC, J Roth is an experienced California landlord - perhaps he or someone else could clarify this.
