Re: Buy new car?

I disagree. Try it ----you might like it.

You haven't seen how people park on my street. Narrow driveway. Cars parked about 6 inches from the edge of the driveway on both sides. That gives me about 20 inches more than the width of [more]

Re: Buy new car?

Back in so you can pull out going forward.

Backing in would certainly make it easier to pull out, but backing into the driveway in the dark on a narrow street with cars parked on both sides is just as hard as backing into the street in the [more]

Re: Buy new car?

Honda CRV has AWD available at about $32K and that's what I'm looking at.

Re: Buy new car?

I am planning to replace my 2007 Honda Accord as soon as my taxes are done*. I really want the back up camera that is now standard equipment as it is very difficult to see backing out of my driveway in the dark on our narrow street with cars parked [more]

Re: Router Problem

Another update. New router installed and working. I took a little more time than I expected since I think they left one step out of the quick start instructions but I got it working with the computer. Now to get the other wireless stuff working with [more]

Re: Router Problem

Thank you for the suggestions and my apologies for not reporting back sooner. I've been working on another project and didn't have time to get back to this until this afternoon.

I went back to set up the router again but it indicated [more]

Re: Statins

My doc tells me that conventional wisdom would have me on statins, but my numbers and ratios are good, even if total cholesterol is a little high. Last blood work I think had total at 225 but HDL at 84. The time before that the HDL was at [more]

Re: Router Problem

I forgot about the reset button, but that didn't help either.

The computer is indicating it is connected to the network, but trouble shooting indicates that connection between the access point, router or cable modem is broken. Also [more]

Router Problem

After a power outage the other day, I couldn't connect to the internet, and tried the usual reset - close and power everything down, restart the cable modem, restart the router, restart the computer which has always worked before. But, not this [more]

Re: interesting disconnect re: moving cost deducts

It's often said there is nothing logical about taxes. I know one employer that didn't pay for meals on business travel because you had to eat anyway whether you were on a business trip or at home.

Re: The Great Pantry Clean Out of 2017

I saw a billboard recently that said that the average family of four throws out $1500 of food in a year.

I set an intention for December to not throw out any food and was pretty successful at it. I ate food in the fridge before it became [more]

Re: New Decluttering Mantra

No question that everything wouldn't fit in a single U-Haul trip. Along with all the other household goods, there's about 150 cases of wine. A going away party would reduce that number but still . . .

New Decluttering Mantra

A friend recently suggested that I consider moving to her city, and while I probably won't, I'm finding myself looking at stuff with a critical eye and asking if I would take it with me if I moved to (City on the Other Side of the State.) [more]

Re: How to change e-mail

Yes, you do have to use the profile manager to switch between the accounts, so that approach wouldn't work for you.

I don't like visual clutter; more than one account is distracting to me, so the profile manager approach is better

Re: How to change e-mail

It is called Outlook Mail App

Okay, that looks useful. How does it compare to Thunderbird which I'm currently using for a half dozen email addresses?

Re: Mail for dual addresses

I only have the one home, but have had a post office box for about ten years since I worried about mail theft. I do still get some junk mail coming to the home address, but the post office directs it to my PO Box.
