    Same here on the GPS....one of the best things we've ever bought! Hubby bought it for me when I had to go to Seattle on a business trip....didn't want me to get lost up there....since then, we've used it so much and it's comforting to know we can always find our way around very easily.

    If I lived in the country, I would grow my own meat,hunt or buy direct from a farmer. and freeze and can my vegatables or fruit. I know growing up in a small town we had one market and had to drive 30 minutes to get to a larger store. Not much competition for your business. Here there are 3 large chains, mexican and chinese, indian stores and other smaller chains all competing so it is a lot easier to find good deals and within a few miles from home.

    I have been doing this for a few years. It is related to the medical record. Usually you have to verify that the doctors documentation justifies what was billed on the coding, otherwise the government or insurances take back money that they paid to physicians or medical clinics.

    life sounds busy and full. I understand... juggling so many balls and hoping you don't drop one because then you may lose all of them.

    San Diego is nice, hope your daughter did well and had fun. What do you have do in a home auditing job?

    I think it might depend on your state. I know when we eloped we went over the border to PA and tried to buy champagne and discovered it was a dry state. Ohio sells some alcohol in the super markets. Here in CA they have a lot of wine coupons, and they sell all types of alcohol. I bought a bottle of 100 year old aged scotch whiskey on clearance once for 3.99 at Ralphs.My buy of the century. I am waiting for my husbands retirement and I will open it up. LOL

    Of course it'd be in the one place you've got carpeting <sigh> We went through some water issues here already - no fun. Hope it will be over for you soon.
    Good luck to your DD on the job! That would be fantastic. My DD is only 17 - but we've gotten to the point where it's time for her to start meeting her own standards...
