  1. I appreciate all of your responses. Two cars stopped in front of me. I stopped and than a car behind hit me at full speed and pushed me into the car in front. The officer wrote up the citation saying it was my fault for following too close, yet the driver in front of me said he was only hit once. The officer never asked him about this. This alone and the physical evidence should have been enough (as the officers report had other errors) to prove he was wrong. The driver behind made false statements as well (false in that they are easily proven by again, physical evidence...) . My insurance (USAA) asked for all of the information....I even had the driver in front call my insurance investigator and tell her as it was recorded he was only struck once. I went to the D'Ville court and the Judge asked how I pled.... Not Guilty. He asked,.. for a ticket for following too close? I said, yes, because in doing so the officer claimed I was at fault. Pleading guilty, which I was not, would not be the truth and I was NOT at fault. I told the judge I had physical evidence, video, the laws of physics, pictures and the errors on the police report....He asked me to approach... I showed him the police report and noted two errors.... he shook his head and suggested I return to see the Solicitor one month later to present to her and to probably avoid court.... One month later, I show up and finally (after 2 hours) I met with her. She was tired and wanted to get the day done (she offered all of this emotional mood to me...). I showed her 'some' of what I had... she interrupted me and said she read the police reports and although she believed me...suggested I plead Nolocontendre(?). I honestly didn't know how this played in this case, but she said it would be as if the ticket was never issued.,. I went back in tot he court and told the judge Nolocont......and he said, fine... you're free to go... I wasn't given any paperwork or anything.... Although thinking back, they kept the money I had to pay for the fine up front..... Than insurance investigator calls and wants to know what happened, because the guy in front got a lawyer and his car was totaled....Okay, blame it all on the guy behind me.... She's an idiot...she didn't help after the accident and I even spent a week of vacation in the room making numerous calls to the insurance company claims offices (and 3 other divisions) , car rental companies, airlines to reschedule,... great waste of a vacation. Oh, I was injured...I had a gash across my head from forehead to back...some blood...long scare... doctor said whip flash.....six months later....this is ridiculous. I still want to recoup what I spent (Actual, Compensatory and if allowed Punitive). I don;t know what's going on as the Ins company doesn't communicate very well no matter how many VM I leave.... So, I thought getting an attorney, they can charge whatever is reasonable and in the lawsuit, they get what they can justify and I'll get back what costs I've incurred... Sorry for the long story....maybe I just needed to get this out.....
  2. I'll make this simple (I haven't been on PCOM in a long time..and there was a time I was on a lot, ...maybe again...)... Anyway, I was in an accident last October on Thornton road... I'm trying to figure a contingency attorney to call. There's a lot on TV and billboards, but if anyone has a personal association with a good contingency attorney, please let me now. The guy who hit me had already pled guilty in court...My truck is now sitting in my backyard. It runs, but needs a new rear bumper...I just want to get my expenses back from this guy - sell my truck (99 Ford Explorer) and move on... Any suggestions for an attorney and/or someone who is interested in my truck, please let me know... Thank you (My truck was paid off..... :-( )
  3. Whew, all I can say....is that.... thank God for work...it breaks up the tedious and exhausting chores of the weekend!
  4. Let's see...I don't have my daughter this weekend...I found that U-verse TV is now in my neighborhood (but wasn't told because they're pushing Direct TV) so GOOD BYE TO COMCAST next weekend..... I think I spend a lot of time doing things at work, for work and too often thinking about work when I'm NOT at work.... While at home, there's the 'TO DO' list that never really gets 'TA DONE' as tasks just get replaced once previous ones are completed.... Tomorrow....I'm going to stop thinking about work and the list and just do something for me... I'm going to get up...when I want...go to the Gym (Planet Fitness in Hiram); get in a good work out and maybe sweat a little....than go to that new (sort of) place next to Taco Bell for lunch called Pollo Tropical, where I already loved their flame cooked chicken, but recently tried their ribs....OMG! Than.... I'm going to go to the afternoon showing of WarDogs! THAT's IT!!!!! My Sunday is planned and except for the trip to the store after the movies because I need to have something to make for lunch this week and I need to make sure laundry is done for work and of course I need to review my documents before the meeting Monday morning...oh, and I need to make sure there's gas in the truck, fluids are topped and check the air in the tires.....THAN....hmm, dinner and maybe just relax and watch Big Brother.... Yep, no planning for me....just winging Sunday and not thinking about anything else..... Anyone care to join me or join in and compare how your Sunday will end up?
  5. As always....thanks P.com family...! Yep, with Sun Valley Beach closed.......those of us still around and remember... I found another one west of us..Pool was nice and cold and now I'm back to tackle the heat!
  6. My A/C went out last night and I figure I'll need to go to a cool pool to feel better after a long hot night! I would appreciate if anyone can recommend a qualified, fair and dependable HVAC person... I replaced my coil a year ago and it's not blowing HOT, but feel like there may be a leak and the coolant is low......I shut it down in case it's a case of what I was advised may be a freeze blockage.....we'll see. Any recommendations please? Thank You
  7. Hmmm, Holistic vs. Homeopathic.... ** Lipitor causes a false A1C, yet Dr's still prescribe meds for a high A1C for diabetes...instead of doing another test to confirm... ** Aspirin negates birth control.....took a while for the medical community to announce (reveal) that one... ** Dr's don't cure...they treat ** Great living if a drug dealer. You have someone hit you in the mouth... go to a Dentist, they prescribe a months worth of Oxycodone or Vicodin and you sell half on the black market to pay the bills; and the rest for you... (personally, I just use some Motrin as anti-inflammatory and water...) **Tell then where it hurts and they've got a pill for it.... Oh well....
  8. "Secrets like a cure for cancer can not remain a secret and the first people to start hearing about it will not be the general public in some rural GA county." Funny - whomever knows, lives any number of places.... I live in Paulding as does many others who hold current and/or past positions of knowledge. But, you perception is your safety...Ignorance is bliss... There are many secrets that may never be known.... Cures....it's up to those who know to decide... Alzheimer's had a cure 15+ years ago by two surgeons. The medical community refused to acknowledge their submission because it hadn't been tested... So they did.... One of the Dr's had early stages and when it became time (they had planned and documented this when his eldest daughter would take control, etc...), the one performed on the other...filmed the whole thing and within 3 months, the patient/Dr. was back to normal with full cognoscente ability When they tried to submit... One of the Pharm company's came to them and asked what they used during the procedure and offered $$$$ for the information and procedure. They promised the Dr's to make the public aware and had them sign on the dotted line. 4 months later, hey asked the company about their plan to tell the public... Pharm company told them they were working on it and not to worry.... they owned the rights so back off. One Dr made it a point to call their bluff..... 3 days later he was killed in a car accident... the other Dr (the patient) got scared and signed everything over to his daughter and left... not knowing where he went.....but the daughter had a copy of the taping and brought it to I don't remember of it was 20/20 or Nightline....but they aired it...all. Than, the Pharm company contacted the station...demanded the copy and threatened to sue if any further comments or discussions were made. it died at that point....nothing since... So why wasn't the information released? Could it have anything to do with $$$ for the Pharm company. What abut all of the people who have this disease... their quality of life, their families? I don't think they really cared about anything more than controlling the information and keeping it under wraps...and sell more meds... I will tell you this...what you hear is not always the truth (surprise surprise).... everyone has to figure out what path they take; who they'll believe and what they want their quality of life to be. For those who have had medicines save their lives and/or make their life better... I thank God for those medicines and the ability to help those who suffer.....but there has become a section of the medical community who have forsaken their Hippocratic oath in favor of the almighty buck..... to those....I hope when you need the pills, for everyone you lied to; cheated; made suffer to prove a point.....you lose a pill and suffer each day a little more... and remember those and their families that depended on you to be honest and forthright and fair.....
  9. I heard on the radio yesterday that 40% of Americans are taking at least one pill a day and 15% are taking more than one a day....are we becoming a sicker society or is society just making us change to where we need to take something to alter a sliding movement back to center? Everything has sugar.....so much sugar in everything. I remember selling a candy bar for a dollar in Jr. High School and it was a prety good size bar....the World's Finest Chocolate bar has shrunk.... go figure! Ok, back to work...have a great day everyone...
  10. No one is attacking all Doctors or the profession as a whole. There will always be skeptics and those who believe the power of the mind enhances the ability of any individual to succeed where medicines may not be as effective otherwise and medicines will always be a potential improvement in our lives. But we also have to admit that the all American dollar is a huge driving force and if not for the ability to make money, many companies wouldn't waste their time trying to find out the cure for many diseases in our society. Yet, think about the pills that exist, that would be obsolete if cures are announced. Sure, it would be great for the world and individuals would be herald if they are the ones who truly discover the solutions.... But as for the examples of water into gas... it's water into an alternative for Gas... that was done years ago...and the industry squashed it until they could come up with the vehicles that take water and separate the Hydrogen and Oxygen --- wait, this is now and we have those vehicles... But remember, this was revealed on heir time.... not ours. The innovation that led to the public announcement wasn't right away. Somehow, people think that once an invention or cure or innovation is found/discovered/invented, that the public is advised immediately....Hasn't anyone ever heard that most new inventions were found/invented, etc...10 years ago and the military R&D doesn't always release to the public (or at least the commercial version) until about 10 years later? Medicine is and will always be a part of our lives and will help further and hopefully better our lives as well. There are million and millions of people who will die of any number of cancers in their bodies....It's sad and I will say that many innovations have also le tot he deaths of those who wanted to prematurely announce to the world great things...by those who don't want this news to be divulged....on anyone but their timeline. I lost my father and sister to cancer.....had I known than what I now know.....of course I'd try to do everything I could... but carefully...the truth is there, but the masses are gong to have a harder time finding it as it's buried further and further as more and more people find out.... Mass 'healing' is a huge undertaking and would upset industries worldwide...Do you think they care about profits more than the lives of the masses? Sadly, I think they care about profits...
  11. CANCER - We use this word as a noun, a verb, a curse, ad infinitum.... basically - the death and inability of a cell to regenerate.... Hmm, I just deleted a lot of verbiage I had written, because I thought about those who would scoff at the truth; those who would grab whatever they could without thinking of consequences.... ... Please understand if any of you all of a sudden had the ability to cure a disease, and word got out..... how would your life be changed...and I doubt in the best way.... Our medical society has found cures for a lot of diseases.. and I don't mean the ones we've publically announced...I mean the ones where the cure would cost people their jobs.... The pharmaceutical companies have procured many of the cures and kept them in their vaults...(i.e. Alzheimer's) but to know, is to spend a lifetime trying to pry this from those who make money by not revealing this information... Think about it..... can you think of how many people are currently working in the field of cancer treatments, research, etc.. and to know that a cure has been found... how would it affect their employment, their families, their income and consider the trickle down effect... There is a cure and the plant that was brought into this country with very strict protocols and under tight guard has been studied and extensive research and (successful human) tests conducted.... without giving more information... I would suggest you do some research on MD Anderson in Texas. ----------------------- Still, any recommendation on a Homeopathic MD in the area?
  12. I'm tired and old(er) and getting cynical...I think, maybe that's just loss of memory.....But I'm tired of knowing about studies and facts and even when I speak to my doctor, he blows it off and just prescribes more pills... You walk into an office.....he asks what hurts...here's a prescription.. You're overweight.... don't worry about weight loos, no one really cares... here's a pill... Gout....diabetes...migraines... HERE'S A PILL.... No, I don't have these, but I know of the research about Lipitor and how it causes false A1C results. Well, knowing this should tell the Doctor to do another test to confirm.... NOOOOOOOOO, can't have that... prescribe Metformin and call you a diabetic. BUT WAIT... if the test results are wrong....than why give a drug... doesn't that cause your body to do something NOT NECESSARY? I love todays new diseases... Restless Leg Syndrome... come on...give me a break, that's the best the drug companies can come up with. Now don't get me wrong...I'm sure there are a lot of people that have the symptoms and NOW have a name. It's not surprising that there's already a drug for it.... WHO KNEW?! ======================================================================= Okay, off the soapbox...needed to vent a bit.. Does anyone know of a good Holistic MD in Paulding or West Cobb? I think the answer to most of the body's issues are eating, exercise and knowing what and when to limit your activities... But I also think that plants have the answers to a lot of what may bother us. Did you know the cure for cancer has been around for 20 years? The US Government funded the study; limited authorized persons (4) to bring the plant into the country and under the threat of $$$$$$$$$$ the grant was conducted and successfully found to CURE cancer. As of a few years ago, I heard it can now me be administered in the brain...THAT SURPRISED ME.... but true... If you're curious, I can give you the name of the facility and the plant.... Anyway, I haven't been on PCOM in a while....busy and that's about as general a statement as I can give at the moment. Time change... I don't like driving home in the dark...I wake up at Zero Dark Thirty in pitch black and go home at Zero Dark Thirty... yuck... Okay, that's it... tired and need sleep, which I'll get in about 6 hours...... Hello to everyone I knew in the beginning days of PCOM when I volunteered to be a Deputy......Pat, et all... nice to see it grow.... Have a nice evening everyone! PS We need to have some singles events in Paulding! Being single isn't as great as it might seem when you always have someone....I have a daughter...she said when she comes to live with me permanently in a year, she'll get on the Volleyball or Soccer team, make some real friends and find a nice single mom for me... I love my daughter!
  13. I did this several years ago and found out a few things... First, I didn't need a permit as I wasn't erecting anything on this slab. It was a patio 16' x 40' up against the house. However......I did need to contact the terminte folks. If you build something this large (I'm not sure how 'large' qualifies but...) against the house, you need to have the termite folks come out and treat the dirt against the house before laying concrete. otherwise, if you EVER get termites, they can claim you covered an access and caused the infestation.... Also, I built the fram for the concrete. It's not a buig deal and I used 2"x8"x16' pcs of wood.... laid them out and than screwed some wood behind them to keep the framing in place. KEY - 1 Yard of Concrete coveres an area of 10' x 10' x 4" thick. As far as the dirt.... I wold not worry so much if there enough irt. The concrete will cover anything and you could level wth a sholvel. Of course, if the area is really hard...than yes.... a bobcat could make the area realatively flat in about 15 mnutes.... or a few guys with shovels... Oh, I also found that when the concrete is poured.... inasmuch as you might want a smooth finish..... DON'T!!! Diong this can void your homeownetrs plicy. Bu making a smooth finiah (as opposed to a brush finish) you cause a potential slip hazard which may void you homeowners policy should someone EVER fall/Slip, etc...wet pavement...who knows.... I guess it depends on what questions are asked about an accident and how nice your agent is... One final bit of info.... COncrete isn't cehap and dependingo n seadon...could run you several huindred with possble minimums... Not to blab this out to the world...but many truck driveers have a full load of say 9 yards...but whent hey grett ot he job site, they may only use 8.....it's already piod for and they're supposed to go back to the yard and dump what's left out.... but if you see a cement truck guy (say he's at lunch) and discretely ask.... he can let you know when he's got a yard or more left...and can arrange to quickly ocme by and drop it off at your place (which is already prepped for concrete pouring)....and you can hand him a quick $80... Also, you can make our own float with a few pcs of wood and that'll save you a ton of money or just buy one at Home Dept/Lowes....and float it yourself... Finally, one last thing.....during your prep of the area prior to pouring: 1) any grass or weeds n the pour area, keep lower than 6 inches. When the concrete is poured, it'll crush and cover that..... 2) It's not critical that your dirt be level. As you're pouring concrete, it'll fill all areas and level itself with the help of your float... 3) VERY IMPORTANT!!! Whenythe dirt is ready.... for at least 5 days prior to popuring the concrete and for EVERY DAY.... fill the area with water and let it soak into the dirt. If you're familiar with liquifaction at all...it'll keep settling the dirt and compacting it until the water can't go down... but will float and evaporate on top. this is a common mistake many people make when pouring concrete before truly prepping. If the dirt is dry and you pour the concrete... the water on the bottom of the concrete will be absorbed into the dirt as a hard film is already setting up on the bottom of the concrete. While you're floating the top... as you finally think it's level...... underneath the concrete, the wter is clumping the dirt and making pockets/gaps which later become solid pockets and areas that may cave in or just crack sooner becasue there's a huge pocket underneath the conrete. This is what causes raking on your drivewey and on thin patio slabs becaus the dirt underneath isn't compacted so there;'s nothing to support the slab and it cracks. When you pour water...it compacts the dirt and after enough water has saturated the dirt.... the only placefor the water to go..... is up....I've had my 40' patio for 9 yeras and no cracks.... that's all I can think of, but once done......it'll be a nice place to stand and not get your feet muddy! I'm too tired to go back and check spelling....but hope this helps a little.....
  14. Thank you. That sounds like a fun thig to go to... I'm surprised with all of the single parents I used to hear about on PCOM, why more don't form a PWP chapter or get involved by responding. But... I suppose like a lot of people in society today... less trusting even when they're right next to their children... Oh well... Thanks again... sounds lika plan
  15. I get my daughter every other weekend and we do Dad/Daughter stuff but it gets to be the same thing, which we like, but I think I need to find her some decent friends when she's here. She's fun, active and a crazy 10 year old and I remember a group called Parents without Partners, but I don't see a Chapter in or near Paulding. If any single parent has young children (child) and has any suggestions for this Saturday...or would like to meet up and maybe meet for lunch, go to the Field of Dreams or a movie (hmm, it may rain)...bowling....basically something for the children..please let me know. Thanks P.Com, you guys are always there for whoever needs advice, help or just an ear.... (way to go PUBBY)
