For what purpose you use your money? » Post #31

Sun Jun 26, 2016 11:39 in General Talk

I keep trying to save for emergencies but something always comes up. Just last week, my Health Savings Account was a little short and they bounced the payment to my pharmacy. I wrote 2 checks out for a total if $18.10 and had almost $20 in the account but they took out $3.50 maintenance fee before the beginning of next month (I consider that stealing). So, not only did I have to make good on the Rx, I had to pay the pharmacy check fee and probably will get a bill from the #$)#*$#*@* savings account. :oops:

I thank the person in the oval office because of ACA, my HSA was no longer allowed. This is not right. They only disallowed only "some" HSA's while allowing others. Still can't find out the reason.

I used to use it for groceries but the costs have gone up so high that I make hubby buy them now.

So I'm starting from scratch again. Maybe I'll have enough saved by the time Christmas rolls around. :roll:

I'm going to do what I do every year. Sit inside on the computer and hope my kids will put the air conditioner in the window for those hot-hot days like we just had this past week. Hubby is having a hard time lifting it lately.

I'm hoping maybe I can get down to the herb garden and see if any of the perennial herbs came up (sage and oregano) and/or plant some basil and dill again. They did fantastic last time (2011) I was able to get down there.

Hubby only planted tomatoes and cukes last year. I'm hoping to talk him into potatoes and yellow beans again along with the T&C. We plant some in containers and some in the ground. We don't have to plant grape tomatoes as they grow "wild" every year.

All of you please notice this, very important » Post #4

It happened to me on another site. They didn't care that I was hospitalized for 3 weeks and couldn't get to my computer for another 2 months due to my injury but that didn't matter. I lost close to $50 on that site.

They should have given me some leeway for illness/injury. I would have been willing to send them proof but they weren't interested, only in getting the money back. Needless to say, I canceled my account with them.

You should be happy that you were given 90 days and valerie is right about reading the rules.

A lot of them are billionaires on paper, not cash. It the market would crash like it did in 2008, their fortunes would crash along with it.

I really wouldn't want to be a millionaire, let alone a billionaire. Think of the headaches and trouble that comes with that title. People and charities begging for money all the time, the risk of kidnapping a family member or even yourself for ransom, no longer getting any pleasure out of your new toys because they no longer are any fun, no privacy in life, papparazzi always after you, and more.

Nope. Hubby and I would be very happy with only a few hundred thousand $$ so we could have a nice retirement life, not the one we have now.

Yeah, kind of reminds me of a long line. Only when you get to the end,
you are not at a water fountain.

I can remember my grandparents always reading the obituaries in the news paper.
It seemed they knew everyone that had died. Their conversation would go something
like this : you know jessie fay died....jessie fay, you don't mean it.....yep, says funeral
is monday....who's officiating....rev burial at golden you
remember when jessie rode that pet cow and fell off and broke a leg....yep...

Now I look at the obits. :?

When you get to a certain age, you DO know almost everybody that dies! It's horrible. There have been at least 15 of my classmates dying in the past couple years. i lost my best friend 5 years ago and another one just last year. I don't even want to read the obits in paper anymore!

Don't you mean the Trashional Enguiirer? They are no better than any other trashy rumor rag. I don't get why people even bothering reading that stuff. They lie so much in these stories that the celebs are starting to say "ENOUGH" and suing them for their lies. The attorney for that rag bragged that most people are warned against taking them on because they would lose all their money. But some are still brave enough to do it.

If they were true stories, how come they get sued and the plaintiff wins? Carol Burnett, Elizabeth Taylor, David Katz regarding the Enquirer calling Phillip Seymour Hoffman a homosexual and being Hoffman's lover which was published AFTER Hoffman died. Why would they have waited? Because they didn't want to be sued by him....but Katz sued them and WON. These were ALL malicious stories that had NO iota of truth in them.

the story that "Casey Anthony Says Meter Reader Killed Caylee."? The story repeated several claims, attributed to Casey Anthony's legal team, about Kronk's past, including that he had displayed "inappropriate behavior with young girls" and had used duct tape to hold his ex-wife against her will. The suit dismisses the paper's claims as "false and defamatory," and says that it has caused Kronk to suffer "loss of reputation, embarrassment, humiliation [and] outrage," which destroyed this man's reputation.

Or how about Brooke Shields who bashed the tabloid for allegedly sending freelance reporters to check her dementia-addled mother out of her temporary assisted living facility. Or Farrah Fawcett, who called the magazine as "invasive and malignant as cancer" because of the story they wrote headlined "Ailing Farrah 'Wants to Die.'" Then there's Kirstie Alley whose career was damaged, Kate Hudson who sued AND WON after the tabloid published pictures of her under the headline suggesting, according to Hudson, that she was anorexic, or Ashley Olsen suggesting in the photo accompanying the story was "clearly designed to create the misimpression that she was 'drugged.'" Olsen also took issue with the Enquirer linking her to her-then boyfriend Scott Sartiano, who at the time, was being investigated by the FBI for allegedly selling ecstasy and cocaine. (His case was dismissed by a federal court in Los Angeles in November 2005.) She sued for $40 million and did get a retraction and apology (don't know if she got any money),

Papers like that need to be stopped, but how? They claim censorship if stopped. So they go on and keep on spreading rumors and lies.

Full time? I wish. I lost my job back in 2010 and even though there's a law against age discrimination, try fighting that fact. I looked for work for 4 years and finally gave up. I know when I'm not wanted anymore, so I spend my days on Clixsense and another site, plus email surveys to try to make a decent income...which is impossible.

Can get one of those in $200-300 range for portable version.

If prefer desktops they also have desktop version (ASUS Chromebox-M075U with Dual Core i3 CPU and 4Gb RAM) it $240 on Amazon but they got some 2 gb RAM version for low $100s (HP Chromebox Desktop Computer - Intel Celeron 2955U 1.40 GHz ) for $140.

That about what Win upgrade cost you. Plus doing this can still use windows computer for non-Internet stuff.

I did buy a laptop for $157 but having problems transferring my important programs (some are paid electronic downloads-no CD available), so it just sits here. I can only use it for the internet at the present time. It was upgraded to Windows 10 on it.

As for the upgrade, I also bought Windows 7 for $57 for my desktop. I really like my desktop better.

Ya, at this moment there is some hiccups in the forum. There are
times it runs slow, I guess due to processes, a lot of traffic, etc.

If you remove your old operating system, all I know is you would
need a dvd to install a new operating system. There may be another
way but I don't know what it would be.

PS. I don't think I have ever heard of a WORD operating system.

See what I mean? I meant Windows 7 OS. LOL I'm in PA.

I have an old XP computer and I need to upgrade to a newer OS. I'm technically at a disadvantage since I've not been able to keep up with all the technology in the past years. I did buy Word 7 OS but am afraid I'll lose some of my programs. Instructions say to backup my programs but a lot of them won't allow it, especially my on electronic download that I paid a lot of money for it. Support was no help with that one because they want me to buy another new upgraded program...the one I have only came out 2 years ago. I am allowed to transfer this program to another computer according to their instructions but it doesn't work and I get no help from support.

Anyway, since I'm so dumb, how do I UNINSTALL my old XP so I can INSTALL the new OS? Don't you need an OS to run the computer? How would it run if I uninstall the OS? Thanks for any help.

Do you smell phantom smoke? » Post #21

Mon Apr 11, 2016 05:50 in General Talk

@Valerie - I started smoking at 13. At first it was a pack a week. By the time I was 16, it was a pack a day.

Gingivitis is what I first was "diagnosed" with in my 20s, but back then, they didn't do or tell you what to do to stop it; at least not where I live. You were doomed to lose your teeth from it. I was in my 40s when I stupidly listened to the dentist. Funny, but it was less than a year after he pulled all my teeth and I spent all that money on dentures that he retired. He wasn't that old either! I still say i helped his retirement fund big time!!!! :x

It's spring. Today's weather forecast is for 2-4", 3-5", or 4-7" of snow, depending on what forecast I listen to....and it just started snowing here.

So lovely. We had a warm winter but the further into spring we get, the colder it gets.

I've read where dental issues can result in bacteria spreading throughout your body and that includes your brain or even heart valves. It can be a serious health issue so I really hope you can take care of the dental problems soon.

Yes, I think it is a strong possibility it could be dental related. For starters, the time frame in
which I started smelling smoke. It started approximately two years ago and that is about the
same time frame I started having dental issues. Most of the teeth I have had extracted, has
been over the course of the last few years and especially the last two years.

Don't wanna scare you but it may not be dental. I had all of mine extracted back in early 90s. Doc said I had no bone to support my teeth and the best thing to do is get em all out. Wish I would've gotten a second opinion. I never had any cavities and only had 1 loose tooth. I started smelling the smoke in early 2000 after mom died.

I hate not having real teeth. I can't do anything with my dentures. I definitely can't eat with them so we never go out to eat anymore. I wear the top plate when I go some place but the bottoms never fit right and this is my second set of top and bottoms. The first set never fit right. They were so loose I needed to use glue to hold them in and they hurt all the time. The worse part was that I was a receptionist and needed to have that sparkly smile. I answered the phone one day and my bottoms fell out! How embarrassing! I had someone different for my second set and the tops fit great but the bottoms still want to fall out so I don't wear them.

If you can afford them, I'd go for implants...but I'd try to keep the real teeth as long as you can.

To tell you the truth, I was absolutely shocked to find an enormous
amount of posts all over the internet of people smelling phantom

It is very annoying to say the least. The good part is, it does go
away after some days or some weeks. Months will pass and I don't
smell it and then there it is again. It is a very heavy nauseating

I continue to research it from time to time and I found a post of
a woman stating she figured it out......she says it is her dead
grandmother visiting her. :shock:

Oh, thank heavens!!!! I thought I was the only one!! I used to smoke 3 packs a day and wanted to quit but couldn't even though I tried 6 times over the years. I used to joke that the only time it didn't bother me not to smoke was when I was in the hospital. Little did I know I would be forced to quit when hospitalized for 3 weeks. That cured me! (That was almost 5 years ago).

Anyway, ever since then, ever so often, I smell cigarette smoke in the house. My mom was a heavy smoker until she died as was my husband's mother. His mother was also a heavy patchoulli user (keep insects away). Every so often, I would get a whiff of patchoulli in the new house (I didn't use it) and after mom died, cigarette smoke (she lived with us for some years).

i still get whiffs of both but not as often as before. His mother has been gone 35 years now and my mom 16 years.

So, you're not alone in this. To me, it says that they're watching over us. ;)
