    US Postal Service *#@!*%#$+

    I was unaware of this 'handing off to USPS' practice until recently. Items I've ordered online even those with a tracking number offered have ended up in the custody of USPS to deliver. I'm awaiting a Groupon purchase today from UPS, and after reading this I tracked my package on UPS.com only...

    Today: I failed

    My condolences on your loss. You did NOT fail. Life is all too short for our pets, and it is a painful thing to experience their loss. I've also experienced this and will again in the not too distant future, as we have 4 senior pups. Rather than emphasize your focus on the loss itself...

    Non-contract Cell Phone Plans

    Virgin Mobile phones use the Sprint network without contract. I just had a discussion with a friend who just finished their ATT contract and bought Virgin Mobile Android phones, Kyrocera Rise models with slide-out keyboards for $99. They get unlimited talk, text and data for $45/month per...

    How many of you have ever..........

    I go to Ogle School on Preston, near Campbell, have been for years. Great prices; I get to enjoy mani-pedi, facial & hair services at the cost of just hair services at regular salons. The close-to graduation students are supervised by instructors, I have had excellent service there &...

    Man walks tightrope over Niagara Falls

    I'm glancing at it as I use the computer. I found it too stressful to watch continually. He's almost there & can now hear & see the Canadian crowd! Correction; HE DID IT!!!! :)

    Generic vs name brand

    Another +1 for Costco's Kirkland brand. :thumbsup: Between Costco jaunts, I like Walmart's 'Great Value' brand paper towels. They are the same as Bounty white select-a-size (for over $1 per twin pack less). Slightly off-topic, I'll state for the record that I despise printed paper...

    Penzey's spices

    I also love Penzey's! I find that I use a bit less of most spice I buy there, they are stronger & fresher than grocery store varieties. Be sure to sign up for the catalog, it includes coupons and good, tried & true recipes! :thumbsup:

    So, just got a new phone

    I should have added: Neither of us have rooted our phones. Hubby chose the D2 for the slide-out keyboard & I chose the DX for the HUGE screen, since I knew that I, as a seriously reader, would use it heavily for the Kindle and Nook apps, and wanted max screen real estate. We both are IT folk &...

    Favorite Apps

    Couple seeks help after babies switched at Presbyterian Plano

    As if the mixup wasn't bizarre enough, the demand for breast milk and even worse, holding someone against their will is over the top, especially since the feeding Mom agreed to a blood screening for the other couple. "But she was also asked to give up a sizable amount of the breast milk she...
