    The heat in my building has not been working properly for about 5 weeks now. The boiler had a pump that needed to be replaced. No problem right well the boiler is so old that they had to get a part special made. Thank goodness it has not been that cold because the heat only runs at night between...

    This afternoon I had to have my beloved German Shepherd euthanized. My poor Maxx started having "cluster seizures" again today...they were some of the worst he's had...the last one...I really didn't think he would make it out of it. Some say there's not actual pain associated with grand mal...

    My dd is a proud goldfish parent. She has three and takes excellent care of them. They are very dear to her. When she got up this morning her first baby was swimming upside down. She didn't want to go to school because she was worried she needed to be home to care for her fish. I promised to do...

    Hi all... Ds1's Nintendo dsi has broken, however, I'm not sure it can be fixed. It's not the adapter, but is the input hole where the adapter plugs in. There used to be two "poles" there, but one got completely smashed by accident. It cannot be straightened. Anyone know if you can replace...

    Son was in a panic Wednesday after school. "My Cello is broken mom we have to go to the music store to try and get it fixed." He had specific instructions from this teacher, including not waiting. It rattled not a good sign. Cellos don't rattle. I see $ signs. I remember how much money my...

    DH goes to work and I go to put clothes in the dryer. I push the button and well, it doesn't start. I go check the fuse box and reset the fuse, but that doesn't help. It doesn't do anything! :( I have no clothes line either and I have two wet loads of clothes sitting in my basement. DH is at...

    I posted about it not only because I was extremely p..... about the break in but because it was the second time within 3 months that it had happened. I posted about it, I believe, on Dec. 18th, the day that it happened. We have been driving a rental car since then and is paid for by my...

    Last week I was out walking my dog on trash day. As I was walking past my neighbor’s trash heap (I say heap because they always have more trash than will fit in the trash can and they just pile it up on the road), I noticed a cute wire basket that was decorated with painted wooden sunflowers. I...

    I am home after having surgery on my broken arm. I fell off a ladder. Apparently you have 2 large bones in your forearm and I broke both. 1 was no longer connected to my wrist/hand and the other had impaled itself through my wrist and hand. What an ordeal. I guess when something gross like...
  13. Home Decorating
    On one of our many moves, my vanity mirror got dropped and cracked. It cracked all the way across the mirror. Since then it has been sitting in my closet, but I finally found a solution to make it look pretty (and still be functional) until I can get the money to fix it. I'm not going to type...

    It was a easy as threading a needle. Time involved: less than a min. Cost: less than a penny. Background story: My 7 year old daughter thinks I can fix anything. In truth not everything. I didn't think I could fix the broken necklace the chain had split apart So I told her so. (crushed her...

  16. Secondhand Shopping
    I found something unique and cheap this morning while thrift shopping. Our area Battered Women's Shelter has a thrift store, and they sell unique jewelry made by their clients out of chipped, and broken china dishes. They are chips of the design fashioned into necklaces, pins, bookmarks. They...

    All my life I have collected and enjoyed beautiful china pieces. But as happens once in a while one of them will break. I used to sadly clean up and throw the pieces away with a heavy heart or put into a heavy duty envelope and stash away in a drawer, especially if the piece was extraordinarily...
  18. Question and Answer
    There are so many "little" things that many of you do that, to some of us who are just now trying to be frugal, might think "does that really make a difference?" So, my question is...has anyone broken down things that you have done to save money? (ie: unplugging things when not in use; hang...

    Grrr! I didn't really notice it until I reached my first patient's house today, because they didn't break any of my windows to get into it. The doors were all locked so they must've used a slim jim. My medical bag was stolen from my trunk. (Which can be accessed from a lever in my car.) I called...
