Re: Daily Check In March 13th

Hello all. I did not sleep well because of Daylight Savings Time and thought about staying home today but have now decided to go to mom's house.

Re: Daily Check In March 12, 2016

I would like to get rid of the cable TV At $100 a month just for that and going up I know there are cheaper alternatives. We do have Net Flix and DS wants to keep the HBO for his shows. I use rabbit ears for the TV's in the house without cable and they work just fine. Some of you have mentioned Rok...

Re: Daily Check In March 12, 2016

FloridaCat, also tell your mother not to let him in the house. She may think it's un-neighborly, but it's just common sense in these times. Yes, as soon as I told mom today about the neighbor's grandson's bad checks, she said, "I'm not going to let him in the house if he comes to the door." So that...
