    What do you have hanging above your bed?

    A trio of Ikea Gassa etched glass art, hanging in a horizontal row. You can switch out the color panels behind them to be red or blue, but I just leave them out so it's more of a white on gray look.

    Current movie thread

    I didn't see this one but have seen previews for it. It's based on the French film, The Intouchables. The French version was great. (And it's based on a true story.) I'd definitely recommend it (the French version). It is rated R, which is fine as we have teens. Our whole family loved it.
  3. I am overrun with papers. Inspired by KonMari (& because I hate paperwork), I'd like to toss or simplify as much as I can. I would love ideas & inspiration for ways to reduce & then easily maintain a simple system. For example, I found this post online & really like the simplicity of it. (Not sure I can make mine quite as simple, but I would like to get close.) I am really working on tackling paper, would like to greatly reduce, & then set-up a relatively simple system that will be easy to maintain. Do you have a simple system for keeping up with home-related files (bills, medical records, accounts, etc....)? Do you have simple categories for filing (rather than separate files for every little thing)? How often do you weed or clean out files (especially older ones)? What *don't* you save? (What should I be tossing & never saving/filing in the first place?) Any tips, ideas, or examples are appreciated! I am fine with accessing some stuff online but I'm not interested in having to scan a bunch of stuff in order to save it (at least not right now). Thanks!

    Best item you bought and ♥♥♥ lately?

    Maybe it shows that I'm just old or boring at this point, but one thing my mom gave me for Christmas was this Oxo Extendable Sweep Set. Yes, I'm admitting I love a broom & dustpan. 🤣 The most awesome thing about it is that the dustpan has teeth & is amazing for removing cat hair from your broom. If you have pets, you need this broom with the toothy dustpan.

    Does a salad spinner work well for kale?
  6. My dad had given me directions for driving from Atlanta to Charleston, SC. (Pre-cellphone & GPS days.) Normally, I'm good at directions & like looking at maps, but this time I went with what he told me & didn't check ahead of time. It was pretty obviously wrong in the beginning as he had me heading west out of Atlanta, so I knew to do the opposite there. (That should have made me suspicious.) All was ok until he somehow routed me through Orangeburg, SC, on various state routes. I got very lost & ended up in the middle of countryside. There was really nowhere to stop and ask directions. After meandering around for awhile on my own, I eventually ended up in Jedburg & managed to get back out to the interstate from there. My unplanned "detour" had slowed me down quite a bit & I lost a lot of time. It mattered because on my way into Charleston, I was supposed to stop at the Charleston airport & pick up my cousin who was flying in from NYC. I figured by the time I got to the airport, she would have been waiting on me about two hours & would wonder what the heck happened. Turned out ok because, for her flight information, she had given me the time of her plane's departure, not the time of arrival. (Who does that???) So, it worked out perfectly in the end. I still laugh anytime I see the highway sign for Jedburg.

    I would definitely go back to your insurance company. Tell them about the unacceptable immediate response from the other company and that you want them (your company) to now handle it.
  11. Yes. See here: Donations are part of a national blood inventory.

    As others have said, let your insurance company deal with them. Awhile later, the other insurance company tried to contact me directly. My number is unlisted and they ended up calling an extended relative, who passed the message on to me. I was suspicious of what they would want so I called my insurance to ask if that was normal. They said it often is but that I was under no obligation to reply to that other company. So I didn't.

    Hugs. Can you call your insurance and have them deal with the other insurance company? I did that about a year ago when my life was crazy and a jerk driver floored it into me backward. (I was behind him in a drive-through line.) My insurance company dealt with getting everything taken care of and covered and made sure his company paid and took care of everything since he was at fault.
