You'd be better off telling whoever is in the ad that you'll boycott em unless they get a new ad agency or flyer style.

    While I'm on a rant, I'm pissed off by Craigslist "buyers" who never follow up on their "Still have?" inquiries... anyone want to buy a Samsung 19" LCD monitor?
    Well there is a Rant listing on Craigslist.

    Anyway it's safe to assume that if they didn't return your email, then it's probably gone to one of the multitude of people inquring especially if the price was really good, or free. But beware that in some cases Craigslistings sometimes are scams bent on getting your email address with no intention of selling you anything, like the one in Kona telling buyers that he has an extra 17" LCD monitor that is brand new but doesn't need it anymore and is giving it away. Can you imagine the number of emails he got? I wonder how much they get for each email they submit to a marketing company.

    It'll get better in time (longer than for you normies tho), but it'd be nice to know just how tore up it is in there.
    Yikes! I'm out of my depth. You're right, it'd be good to know that-- along with a price quote on a set of custom-fitted lightweight orthopedic knee braces.

    It's annoying because I smell a bargain. It's a business claiming to have a bunch of leftover photovoltaic panels from their last job. They're offering the panels at a great price (but not "stolen-property great"). OTOH it seems to be a pretty small business and not much of it at that.

    You'd think they'd be saving their inventory for their next job but they're behaving as though they're either overwhelmed with scrambling for customers or getting ready to shut down the business. Either way they don't seem to be able to decide which choice to make to the point of returning e-mails/phone calls. Maybe they're frustrated because they get too many lookie-lookies who don't follow through either. Everybody loves talking to PV sales guys about the technology & savings but very few follow through.

    I'm 2-3 years away from actually "needing" a couple more kilowatts of PV panels. But it's tempting to take advantage of bargains that seem to drop in your lap, especially when the only shipping cost is the time it takes me to drive over there and pick them up. Of course if the price gets even cheaper than it is now then I may be able to feel adequately compensated for the hassle factor.

    I've gotten so I can ignore pain through meditation and a sort of self hypnosis thing I do. However if I'm shredded up in there blocking the pain is not a good thing cause there will be that much more shedding going on.

    My twin died 3 years ago. I only met him when I was 10 and came from France. His name was Paul and we invented our own special language. He never spoke French and my English was feeble.
    Believe this ! we could telecommunicate. Not well but we knew what each other were feeling.
    If he was hurt in some way then I could feel the pain.
    We used to put each others clothes on and swap dates, I soon got sussed out by my accent.

    I got thrashed up last year at Dillingham and now we've discovered I messed up a particular part of my back that's causing all kinds of pain in my back, left hip, and down my left leg. I need a series of injections to fix the problem but they're $5000 and my husband is changing jobs so our insurance ends on 12-23 and we don't get new coverage until March.

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    Sciatica is one of the side effects of it. The nerve is inflammed and causing all kinds of crap.

    Layoffs.

    Losing six great people out of a staff of 22, just so the budget numbers look good.

    Ahhh...maybe the shots will help that. But until you can get them try a yoga stance that's helped me out with my sciatica.

    Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart (next to a table or something sturdy if your balance isn't all that great)

    Turn your toes inward so you're standing pigeon toed

    Keeping your back straight, slowly bend forward from the hips..stop before it gets painful and just stay there for a bit till you feel the small of your back opening up.

    Slowly come back up to a standing position and relax.

    Do that two or three times to start, go slowly at a measured pace you want to stretch and open up the small of your back not exercise it.

    Was expecting the postal carrier to leave a pkg for me today (ordered Christmas presents for family.) So I found a note in my box, requiring delivery confirmation. That means I get to try to go to the post office this week, before Christmas!

    Not looking good since I am working the next two days 12hr shifts. My only hope to get this gift prior to the big day is IF the Waialua post office is open on Christmas Eve.

    Otherwise they will be Late Gifts from Santa.

    On the other hand, that's not such a bad idea.

    This thread works. I am no longer pissed off. Hmm.

    Not so much "pissing me off" but frustrating, I've been sooooooo close,
    known the location and even missed by 3 minutes on Twitter winning a gift box from Hildgund. Oh well.

    I just make sure I don't eat anywhere near bedtime and lots of Tums. I should go in for some prescription stuff but with no health insurance it'd be quite expensive.
