On the end where it plugs into the kettle, everytime I use it, I have to jiggle it and wiggle it to get it to switch on, and then when I let...

    Is anyone else being bombarded by phone calls claiming they can reduce the interest rates on your credit cards? It starts as an automated call, most of them claiming to be "Cardholder Services" that tells you that you have been selected for this service and to press 1 to speak with someone. I...

    I'm still miffed at all the advertising that is being done. Save the economy by buying lots of cars from x dealer. Save the economy be spending at 1.5% interest at x store. I know we can't stop spending entirely, in fact I don't know it's possible as there are bills every month and groceries...

    He SAYS he wants to get out of debt as badly as I do, but then his actions don't line up with that. I set up the budget, he barely glances at it (says he feels "stuck" with it as I won't budge from it), and then all month long he never looks at it at all, and even when I tell him how much is...

    So, I'm watching Clean Sweep and there is a woman on who refuses to get rid of anything. Every single thing is a fight. EVERYTHING! You called the show. You know the rules. You know you have a clutter problem, and yet you refuse to get rid of anything? Come on. You have more than a...

    well so dh and I are replacing a toilet. Thinking of going with a 6L (6 Liter) flush instead of 13L till I notice the disgusting new design of all the 6L toilets I find-- at least those in my price range. The wonderful "raceway" of the traps and tubing and piping etc is outlined on the bottom...
  13. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    We have gotten so many of them and I find them so annoying. I feel like if you are going to have me take time away from my family to listen to you, you should at least be a live person or ask me if I even want to hear the prerecorded message!!!!:bang: I'll tell you, there are a few candidates...

    Dd has been having problems with the boy who sits next to her in homeroom. Since the beginning of the school year he keeps "borrowing" her school supplies. But today really takes the cake. He got her package of rubber bands ( the kind for braces ) out of her desk and was playing with them...
