Re: 2nd Hand Stores

I have been going to several thrift stores lately too. It started when I had a whole lot of clothes to donate and looked around for stores which support good causes. Then I went thru a few of them and have made some great purchases -- $8 for a very [more]

Re: GAH

My company has an opening for someone to help us with our CMMI compliance and audit prep. I think I'll volunteer to help out on that until they hire someone.

Re: OT: funeral protocol?

In all my years of going to funerals, I have been to exactly one Catholic funeral where someone got up at the end of Mass and gave a eulogy, so I would be surprised if this is done, but you never know.

I suspect this is one of those [more]

Re: Doctor Visit Waiting Time?

Telling someone that no matter what the issue is, you can only been seen in 6 weeks is not a good way to treat your patients.

Yes, I got a different doctor after too many of those delays. The one that got me was when I scheduled an [more]

Re: OT: funeral protocol?

For my family, there was more of the eulogies at the evening services than in the Mass. YMMV.

Also, there is apparently an increasing tendency for video taping the services (by the funeral home). I'm not sure why but perhaps some people want [more]

Just one more voice reiterating what the others have said. Also I am Catholic, so take that into account if you wish.

Re: Doctor Visit Waiting Time?

I think the OP was using a bit of hyperbole here to point out that it didn't matter what the reason was, the "average" wait time was 6 weeks. I'm not willing to wait that long unless I'm dealing with a specialist.

Re: Doctor Visit Waiting Time?

That sounds pretty long - like the office is very busy. So consider that in the future if you need a normal appointment, there may be a long wait.

I had a PCP who it was at least 6 weeks to get an appointment. Sinus infection? 6 weeks. Blood [more]

I'm not a fan of pitchers purposely throwing @ a batter, but I can understand the motivation in this case.

Re: Backup payer

On the electric topic....applicants often ask how much the bills are. Since we don't live there, we don't have access to the monthly figures. But if I call the company, they *will* give me the "easy-pay" monthly average that would apply [more]

You only have control over the gap in front of you until another car moves into it.

Re: Eat mor chikin

One thing about this disease is that the time between exposure to confirmation (which is usually after death) can be years or even decades. So who knows when/where he contracted it - there's no way to narrow it down. If he had never traveled outside [more]

Re: water bill and rent

Would we need to add an attachment to make this change, or can we just agree verbally or in an email that she will use the $25 to offset the rent and only send me a payment of $1375 each month?

Email would be better than verbal and [more]

Re: Water bill confusion

The first thing I'd do is to turn off yout toilet valve unless you are just about to flush. Do this every time and make sure to turn it off when you leave the home for the day. That should help cut off the "must be a flapper leak" reason. [more]

She's 80 years old.

Hope she is okay!

I also hope this happened in one of the states that has elder abuse laws (which can include financial crimes) to enhance the other charges.

I thought it was also a limited run series - that there would only be 10 episodes and not have another season. Perhaps that has changed?
