Pretty excited (yes, it’s amazing the things which excite me!)

Posted by in business, found

made my first SUCCESSFUL batch of homemade mayonnaise. Other attempts have been major fails. Room temperature egg yolks and a narrow bottle (I used a regular mouth pint jar) seem to have made the difference. I used a stick blender, hence the reason for a narrow container. Texture is a-w-e-s-o-m-e. Can’t wait to make some…


So if you care to remember

a while back someone asked about our goals for 2014. Mine were to pay back the money that we borrowed from out EF. Number 2 was to pay off the doctor for my hubby’s surgery.. I was hoping to have those two things done by June of this year. I am happy to report that…


And next week I’ll do an update on my year-long goals

~ Talked to XM radio. If we paid a year in advance, they would give us a 50% discount. Which we took. Unfortunately, this is a one-year only special, so we’ll probably drop it next year. ~ Discovered that our mortgage balance was low enough to get our PMI removed. House payment went down $50!…


It has been an interesting week

The weather for us on the gulf coast has made life havoc. Our store was open till only noon yesterday. Today we were open all day, still another hour to go. It has made people with normal jobs have some unscheduled time off and rather unexpectedly. Bad for hourly workers. However tomorrow it should be…


Gandalf and Fleur will head down to Texas

to a friend of mine who is Belgian-savvy for socializing and hopefully the goal of getting them placed in homes. Shadow should be going to his new home in March (yay!). Looloo, my main troublemaker, is proving to be stubborn to shift so there has to be a plan for her that will come together…


We got the keys to our space last Tuesday

so we spent the remainder of the week gathering the supplies we would need to paint and clean. We spent Friday afternoon cleaning or with appointments with different trades–pest, HVAC, locksmith. Saturday and Sunday were spent painting. We have primed everything except 4 closets/storage areas of varying sizes. I figured that we should get the…


I will try one more time and then I’m done

Please check with OK state regulations regarding vehicle abandonment. According to the three instances where I had to deal with an abandoned vehicle, 30 days was all the time required for a vehicle to be parked with no communication from the owner, before it was considered abandoned. The mechanic and/or the land owner was under…


I’m very excited for you! I see major $ coming your way

If I were you, I would stop worrying about whether he broke the law, get the sheriff involved etc. Clearly he did, and clearly the sheriff doesn’t care. I would, however, get to the Small Claims court house for that area (where the truck was at, since technically, that’s where the contract was) and file…


I used the cricut craft room to lay out a full 12 x 12 sheet

Went to the cut feature and it said I needed to link my cartridge. Tried to link an got an error. Then it said I needed to update my firmware, I hit the skip button because I wanted to complete the project. It would not let me cut unless I did the update. So I…


I was curious if this machine is sold on Amazon.com?

Posted by in shops

You could post a review there too. Reviews there often make companies really sit up and pay attention simply from the sheer exposure to such a huge potential market. Also, epinions.com might be another option. But yea, spread the word far and wide. That’s simply unacceptable for a company to treat their customers that way….


I did better, I posted it on several users

Posted by in compensation

Once I did others came forward with basically the same story, only none if them got any compensation. My warning also stopped several from doing the latest update, thus saving their machines. Many who were going to buy the new unit are now going to buy from their competitor. Many were not aware they regularly…


Yup, my utilities are the same

Posted by in business, extra expenses, money

mortgage stays the same, cell phone bill is the same, insurance is the same, cable is the same, cc payment is the same. What changes for me is fuel, groceries that sort of thing. That doesn’t mean that I don’t check my bills every month – because I do. I just prefer to set it…
