How NH pays for schools, etc.

You wouldn't believe the property taxes! The money has to come from somewhere.

Grammas are special

My Condolences to you and your family. My Nana passed away in 1969, and I still remember her so well. She left me a pin that I always admired, and I still have that pin all these years later.

Fiesta ware - made in the USA

A few years ago I set out on a quest to find some coffee mugs made in America. I flipped over a lot of mugs, I can tell you. And most are made in China. I finally came across Fiesta ware. Colorful, quality products, and they have always been made in this country (West Virginia, I believe). I have since expanded my Fiesta ware to plates, and I just love the product. I noticed in a recent flyer from JC Penney that they are now carrying Fiesta ware.

Profile Anonymity

Anyway, having recently arrived at membership status, I find myself on many occasions clicking on a poster's name to get a feel for who the person is that is making these comments. Are they male, female, young, old, where they live? And generally what I find is NOTHING. I'm not looking for height, weight, bra size, etc., but why don't more DU's give out information as to who they are?

Seniors on Medicare

It's insurance decision time again. Since I am new, and DU is a wonderful source of information, I thought I would ask some of the seniors what you have for insurance in order to help me make choices for 2013. Do you prefer Original Medicare with a separate prescription plan, a Medicare Advantage (HMO, PPO, PFFS) that includes prescriptions, or one that does not include Rx coverage? If you could afford it, would you include a Medigap (supplemental) policy that picks up the 20% not paid by original Medicare?

There are lots of choices, and I'm just wondering what you all think. Thanks for your suggestions.

Not the first time for an earthquake in NE

Some years ago (less than 10), I was living in Southeastern Mass. I awoke early one weekend morning to a loud rumbling noise. I looked out the window for an explanation. Nothing. It was all quiet. I began to consider the possibility that the basement furnace was about to explode. It was really frightening. I went out into the kitchen with the thought of removing myself from the house. I looked at my pot rack, and the pots and pans are all swaying back and forth as if propelled by some unseen hand. I have never seen the like. Sometime later it was reported on the news that an earthquake had occurred somewhere in New England.

Know What You Mean

It's not just that they get offended, it's what they are saying in the first place that gets me. For instance, she who-shall-remain-nameless, posts on her wall every day that she has been to her morning workout, as if we all care. She who-shall-remain-nameless posts a picture of her reproductive system prior to a hysterectomy she needed. That's more information than I want to know. And finally, she informs us all that she has purchased a hair removal gizmo to use on her private parts! I am not kidding. Geesh.

Thanks Aristus

I just checked out Will Shakespeare in the Lounge. I'm not sure what a whining mammet is, but I'll take it as gospel that it describes Paul Ryan. Thanks for the suggestion. I will be certain to check it out again for 16th century words to add to my vocabulary.

You may be a republican...

If you think that the millions without health insurance is a small percentage of the whole and therefore are not worth bothering about.

Republicans who are haters cannot discuss issues

I don't mind engaging a Republican when we talk the issues, but if all they can do is name calling, I politely leave. I was in the elevator in my apartment building two days ago when an obvious Republican asked me if I was voting for Romney? Not that it was any of his business, but I said, no, I don't like conservative viewpoints. He said to me, "You do know Obama's parents were communists?" I said that I wasn't aware of that but since Republicans have been calling him a Muslim these past few years, I find a Muslim-Communist to be an interesting combination. Obviously, he is picking weirdo information off the Internet. Some of it you wouldn't believe.
