    I don't know how you get away with every three months! I have to do every four weeks, religiously! If you go to a really good hairdresser, they can advise you about the color (and what you have to...

    Surprise! The second aide dropped in (she is leaving for a vacation for a few days and needed something in the house) and we had our conversation. I told them that both of my parents were getting...

    The problem with adding a third person, of course, is that it cuts their salaries and they are used to splitting the work. I certainly can tell them that they need to find coverage if they need to...

    The geriatrician even comes for house calls - at least I know that she has no bedsores! Goodhors - that is horrible!

    I did visit once almost unexpectedly - half hour's notice. It did not seem...

    Sounds as if the employer has a mental/medical issue. I would report it, dispassionately, because she needs help. How would he feel if she hurt someone and he had done nothing?

    I was up in Plastow today (to get my helmet replaced as I whacked it last week - with my head inside it. Got my replacement for the $200 cost, plus some socks, and a pair of white FITS - the thick...

    Well, they asked me how much I wanted, and how much "wiggle room" I would give them. Just my experience.

    Not lowering the price is not Pelham's fault. The owner gives guidelines regarding whether or not he/she is willing to decrease the price, and by how much. I suppose you might argue that Pelham...

    Just under a year ago, I took a friend to the ER at Man's Greatest Hospital for a suspected DVT, one month after a knee injury. He underwent an ultrasound and was admitted for anticoagulation. I...

    I had two bad colds this winter, one was really enervating. And now, at least four weeks out from the last one, I still have a crack in the corner of my mouth (I get these with colds - a real crack,...

    I'd rather be lucky, because you can be fabulously skillful but fail due to circumstances outside of your control. Luck never hurts! And if you are diligent, you will put in the time and effort to...

    I cannot stand the heat and humidity, so I'd never move there. In addition, one of my horses, which came from FL, got summer sores really badly, so I'd never move him back there for the summers.
