The idea of finding love online is a scary thought although I've heard of some successful outcomes. Good to know about I'd be interested in knowing which other sites are suspect.
This is all so true, Rita. A friend of mine who specializes in non-profits and is a consultant for them suggested Team Rubicon for donations to Hurricane Dorian. She said they are on the up and up and doing great work there. (She does not work for them, but knows how to vet them out)
That's kind of alarming. Something to think about for sure.
In California, chain restaurants have to post their calorie counts and it's so alarming. What you thought was a healthy salad takes up your entire day's budget. I love Maggianno's but taking home an extra dinner usually lasts for a week of meals.
Those types of scams are so rampant. I never take a call from Social Security or the IRS. I either call them or use their official websites that have a verification code.
You're right about that. People who are heavy drinkers, especially.
My cable company makes me nuts. We have Spectrum and the initial package with a "deal" included the Internet, TV, and phone. We don't use the extra phone because we only use our cellphones. We've asked to take the phone off but it would actually make the charge higher. Makes no sense at all. Why should I pay for something I don't use?
I found a product at a spa called Coola that you can buy on Amazon that has safe ingredients. I have to admit that because I wear contacts I often "forget" to wear sunscreen. I always get some in my eye at some point and it burns. I usually walk in the early morning and otherwise don't spend a lot of time directly in the sun. Tell that to my age spots. LOL
We had a great cruise on Royal Caribbean a while back. We also got a great deal on a Cunard Cruise through Vacations to go and got upgraded when we boarded to the Queen's Grill at the same price. You never know. I love Holland America too.
Those are such great tips. We live in an area with a lot of young film students. They are always crossing the street or walking their dogs with their noses in their cell phones. It's scary. The other day an 80-year-old man was killed in a crosswalk in LA because some impatient jerk couldn't wait for him to cross the street. Then, he took off and left him there. It's frightening.
Excellent info as always about finances.
I always love Southwest and had the worst experience flying American. Dirty plane and bad service. Sounds about right to me.
Thanks. Great posts. Always fun to read.
One thing I worry about is people with children who constantly have their noses in their phones. They aren't paying attention and it can be deadly.
I'm thrilled that Green Book won. I really got into it. Loved BlackkKlansman and Vice also. I agree that Beale Street was excruciatingly slow (director choice) but Regina King and all the actors were excellent. The dresses that night were a nightmare for the most part.
I was never a fan of soft drinks and the only carbonated drink I consume is sparkling water. It's the worst for your health as are most diet drinks. Great stats.
Well, that's scary. I can't believe how many juice boxes my kids went through when they were little. Luckily, now they eat healthily and all I ever drink is water, tea, coffee, and a little wine.
I feel so horrible for all those people who aren't getting paid. I hope it ends soon because it's so unfair and is compromising everyone's security. I opened an online bank account so I could siphon small amounts into it. I have to be more consistent in doing it.
I love feta cheese and probably eat it every day in my salad. It's one of my favorite cheeses and it's good for you too.
That's a great reminder. We may be due for an earthquake.
Buying a car is one of my least favorite things to do. I guess that's why mine has over 120,000 miles on it. But sometimes you gotta do it. Great tips.
Fun posts, Rita. Thanks, so much for putting them together.
I love that we have calorie counts posted at chain restaurants in California. It has prevented me from indulging so many times. I usually try to split a meal with someone because they're doled out for an army and not an individual. I will definitely avoid that breakfast burrito. Jeez!
I'm a big fan of avocados and pineapples. Scary about the strawberries and potatoes. The thicker the skin, the less likely you need to be worried. Otherwise, go organic.
