  2. Ok, OK....so should I just set up an account as mrsdavidj6? I have no creativity!
  3. Just took me by surprise, that's all. Then hubby showed me the census "blog". I guess this is "normal" - Personally, I don't like that our tax dollars are being spent on 14 big semi trailer things running around the country having a blog and handing out all types of freebies. I just don't find this type of activity a wise use of funds at this particular time in our history and I wonder just how much this "helps" make people fill out the forms.
  4. LOL......no, I'm just too lazy to have my own account and he never uses his. (mrsdavidj6)
  5. Well, seems as if this is nothing new....Hubby did a little research and found that there are towels, hats, shirts, mouse pads, etc and they're being handed out everywhere. http://blogs.census.gov/roadtour/
  6. Thanks - just thought I'd po'd the powers that be (the mrs)
  7. OK - last night I had one of my posts moved and the other closed and I don't know why so if I'm offensive, please let me know...I don't mean to be. OK....2010 Census vent - today I splurged and had a manicure. As I sat down, I realized the several of the stations had travel mugs with 2010 Census in large letters and then I noticed tote bags also. Some writing, but 2010 Census in very large lettering. So, I asked the girl where they came from. Well, they all live in the same apartment complex (in Gwinnett - although this salon is in Kennesaw) and the census workers came thru talking to
  8. Kewl....I wanted the info for reference tomorrow....again....it's nice to be able to get your frustrations out and here others stories.
  9. Well, the topic disappeared, but thanks everyone for letting me vent and for giving me more info on trying to report fraud again....
  10. we had an issue where my hubby had a colonoscopy and the anesthesia was kicked back. First, they said precert, but, I knew the doctor had called for the precert. Then we found out the real reason was because the doctor chose to hire/use a certified person to monitor the anesthesia to ensure no lawsuits. Our insurance company determined that they would not pay for the person saying that a nurse assistant or the doctor could have monitored. Well, long story short, I called the insurance commissioner. My insurance paid.
  11. I don't mind anyone receiving unemployment benefits. The program has been in place for many years. We all pay into it - I know the argument - the company pays for it - but we all know that cost is passed on to the "consumer" of whatever the company creates. So, I again, I do not mind anyone receiving unemployment. I do have a problem with not accepting a job while receiving unemployment even if it's not the dream job. I was laid off (along with 55 others) November 1992. I applied for unemployment. I also updated my resume and went throughout office parks around my old company asking to s
  12. So do I, but I have friends who ask me why I do it....they like the "feel of new clothes"......I think most stores now tell their employees to accept anything with a receipt - regardless of tags - simply for the factor of people standing and causing problems when something can't be returned. And, for the Kohls employee.....I've found things in the dressing rooms when trying on clothes and report it to the management who always says - yeah, sorry, thanks, happens every day. I tried on a winter coat and found a handful of the things they put earrings on in the pockets where someone had stolen t

  14. Thanks....I know Mustang drive, just somehow have missed a park....
  15. Chicken spaghetti, salad, bread and cinnamon apples I pray these go quickly, successfully & with no side effects! Such a nice neighbor!

    Well, the MIL called back (see earlier post that she'd left a message Saturday). She tried our home number and before I could "click" over with call waiting, she was gone. She called my husband to report that I obviously wouldn't answer because I knew it was her. Then - on to her "exciting news" - My husbands cousin, who he hasn't seen but one time in 15 years (and that was 15 years ago-they rarely saw each other as children) has adopted a baby from China and she wanted to give my husband the link so that my 12 year old could see a picture of his new (what 3rd or 4th?) cousin. And, of cour
  17. Don't know why I'm chirping in here, but here goes. Mine do not have caffeine at all, except for whatever the amount is in chocolate in dessert. I limit sweets. He doesn't like sweets, so. Cook healthy meals, etc. That being said, I'm not going to try and tell anyone what not to give their kids. I raise mine, you raise yours. Why? Because I look around me and wonder why I'm in a handbasket and where are we going? (You know - He** in a handbasket) I volunteer alot - school/church/community. I'm not a prude. Had some wild child in me in my late teens/early 20's. But, I'll tell you rig

    Wow - timely topic as my MIL called and left a message yesterday - on the home phone instead of on my husbands work phone. I made sure to hand him the phone to listen to it because she has told many members of the family that I never gave him messages - gave, because after 18 years (oh, I'm 48, no in my 20/30's) - on my birthday in 2009, she was so nasty to me over the phone that I ended up screaming an apology for being such a sh**** DIL and hung up. He won't call her back - he'll wait until she calls again. My husband had heard the entire side of my conversation back on my birthday and my
  19. I was thinking the same thing!
  20. Well, hang on to your hat when this healthcare thing goes thru and the states are mandated to provide more Medicaid, etc.
  21. In O's closing remarks, he likened this to Walmart being able to negotiate better deals than the mom & pop store on the corner. Not cool.....We all know what Walmart has done to the mom & pops
  22. We have senators that are so old they can't function....what is the deal?
  23. Well, we're in the last 30 minute stretch.....have had to switch to computer feed 'cuz they cut away. For the most part - from my wasted day on the sofa - there are actually some intelligence on both sides - minimal, but it's there. However, there is no way in you know where that the Dems are going to change a thing. Throughout the day, there has been NO democrat that was open. They feel as if they have touched on everything the Repubs want and just because none of it is the exact way the repubs want it, so what. I've seen passion - some. What I don't like is sitting her seeing people wh
  24. I'm tired of hearing - we've addressed this in this bill" when, the Dems have addressed their interpretation of the issue. I see absolutely no outreach to the Repubs and I've watched this all day - yes, I'm definitely sick - so, I'm taking this opportunity to see something instead of watching the talking points or reading the spin on what happened.
