    Just Curious

    Hi Pam. Thank you for being here. We have 2 indoor cats since kittenhood, Oliver, 13 and Tripod, 10. Both are healthy. Oliver seems to usually be the alpha cat. I am not writing about a problem, just a question. Oliver is very social to company. He will practically stand on his head to get...

    Outlander Series

    I don't usually post on this board. I go through spurts of reading, and don't often have much to add. This isn't the first time this series has been mentioned, but I didn't think it would be a good idea to resurrect a thread from 2004.

    Red Tape

    I just had to tell you guys about this. Too funny and soooo stupid. I am the "account manager" (contact person) for communication purposes with the supplemental insurance company used by the employees where I work. I noticed that on the new bill, my policy is missing. I sent an electronic...

    I got scammed

    My DH and I were outside last weekend having a cookout and I heard on the radio that Trans-Syberian Orchestra tickets were on sale. My DH had already tried to get tickets for my birthday in September, but the concert was cancelled. I ran to the computer and stupidly purchased tickets on a site I...

    I was online looking at Google+ and my AVG popped up and said I had a threat. It identified the threat as coming from Wild angent games that my DH plays. (Well, not anymore.) Since then, the identity protection component of AVG is not active. The fix button does not fix it. I tried to use...

    Radiation Threat

    I think all the rest of the news pales in comparison to the devastation that has already happened and the threat of radiation that those in Japan are facing. I heard on the radio that there is a no-fly zone above the reactors. People are ordered to seal themselves indoors. Can all those who...

    Temporary pain relief

    from dental pain... This is too good not to share. My pain was so bad I had to sip cool water every few minutes. The typical tooth pain relievers worked for a minute - barely. Asprin didn't take the edge off. So I searched for home remedies. Vanilla extract works! I poured it on a cotton ball...

    Emails that Cry Wolf

    This morning I received one for the umpteenth time from a well-loved older relative. You know the kind I'm talking about. The ones that spread untruths, many times political in nature, but not always. I receive these on a regular basis family who I love and respect. I don't want to hurt their...

    How do you vote?

    Well, I'm not actually asking how to vote or who you voted for. I'm curious how we come up with our decisions. For instance, do you do a lot of research online, listen to ads, read articles and editorials in the paper, etc. Do you bother researching the "little guys" like (in our local...

    Does anybody know

    What kind of animal would kill a rabbit and bury it? My DH found it in the back yard. There are no dogs around that we know of. There are woods behind our yard. I'm thinking possibly a fox. Do they bury their prey?

    Attitude changes in different rooms

    This isn't a problem, I'm just curious if anyone else experiences this: Oliver can be a bit standoffish when he's in the living room. For instance, he will shirk away when petted. On the other hand, when he is in the bathroom, he is very cuddly. Do you think this is unusual? This does not...
