So I haven’t watched TV in a week or two, real life has been getting in the way. I decided one night last week that I wanted to watch HGTV so I grab the remote in the bedroom, push SAT and then push TV —- all I get is ‘please wait’ and scrolling messages across… Continue reading Dish Network, the Cop, and MOI
A little background: I’m a slob. And I tend not to care what clothes look like as long as they are clean, however that’s actually an improvement over the way I used to be. In college my mother would be appalled because I’d wear dirty jeans, dirty blouses, etc even when out in public. Back… Continue reading My Mother Would Be So PROUD!!

Of course Wells Fargo gets their pound of flesh ($19.95) with the fee… Continue reading And even more fun with banks …….
Sometimes I wonder if I have a virtual sign on my forehead stating “please do screw me over.” I’ve been trying to transfer money from Emigrant Direct to Wells Fargo for about 6 weeks now. The Emigrant Direct account was linked to a closed Wells Fargo account, so I had to get it linked to… Continue reading Fun with Banks (sarcasm intended)
And for all those politically correct poobahs out there….the post you are about to read involves my stupidity only. I figure it’s acceptable to call myself stupid, or at the very least bone-headed. I went to a family picnic that was a 2 1/2 hour drive away (one way). I didn’t get lost finding the… Continue reading Adventures in Stupidity
