  1. Psychiatric service dogs still have to have a trained task. They are more than just for emotional support. However it was very confusing before though since they were for psychiatric services that they were often lumped into emotional support animals. I am going to get my organizations confused and don't want to research right now but a few years ago the legal definition of a service animal was clarified to be a 'dog' and in certain circumstances a miniature horse. That did away with individuals that wanted to use any animal including pigs, snakes, and yes monkeys. My own th
  2. But it definitely doesn't sit up like a Yukon, just FYI. I had several Expeditions and then tried to downsize to a Traverse. I just didn't like being so low on the interstate. My husband really loved it though. I kept it about 15 months and traded it for a Suburban. I <3 my Suburbans. My husband wished we never sold the Traverse and purchased himself one about 2 years later. It has been perfect for him. I much prefer sitting up as high as possible, he prefers the size of the Traverse. He has put many, many miles on it in a short amount of time and has had zero issues.
  3. There have been many great posts specifically about his medical costs. Let me explain about his amputation. First, based on what has been posted, he will NOT need a specialized car. Modifications to his home, maybe, maybe not. Prosthetics, that is a whole different story. His insurance should cover one decent prosthetic for him, usually at the same benefit level as his other medical benefits (although there are still unfortunately exceptions of much lower coverage). However, if he wants a specialized running leg, he will have to cover that 100% out of his own pocket at a cost of ar
  4. A little googling tells me that the Incoco brand sold at Ulta is made by the same company as Color Street. Good luck!
  5. Have you tried or considered Color Street? My daughter is a competitive swimmer so polish has never lasted more than a day which was beyond frustrating. A friend began selling the Color Street which are the nail polish strips, similar to Jamberry BUT much better and they don't totally destroy your nails like JB. The Color Street have proven to last well for her and she can easily put them on herself and they look very nice. Not trying to sell them to you :), MLM you or anything else, just letting you know what has worked for her. I'm guessing there are similar brands available at d
  6. Honestly, I just don't understand why any business would publicly support any political candidate. My husband and I were just discussing this. Obviously they may have views, but why attach it to a business???
  7. Yep, this was really our only con that bothered us but it was certainly not a deal breaker. We just always check our pool filters before getting in and watch where we walk on our way down to the lake. We love being on the lake and having friends over all summer. Yet another thing that makes our home be the place our kids and their friends hang out.
  8. Which model did you purchase? Ours is on its last leg too. I don't need anything fancy, just reliable.
  9. You do have to make sure the kiddos don't shoot each other in the eyes, but otherwise, it uses so little salt each shot, it doesn't end up everywhere. I'm telling you, they are the best thing! And yes, we may have more then one or two @PeterPan We give a few out each year!
  10. Have you ever heard of a Bug-a-salt??? We found them a few years ago and have to admit have a little too much fun using them. https://smile.amazon.com/BUG-A-SALT-3-0-Black-Fly-Edition/dp/B07RJZNY5C/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2FTNGFLZOAOGA&dchild=1&keywords=bug+a+salt+3.0&qid=1594830385&sprefix=bug+%2Caps%2C183&sr=8-4
  11. I would not. I would reserve a 911 call/ambulance if the patient can not be transported safely. Two family members broke their legs in such a way that they could not be transported safely. In those cases it would do more harm to try to move them ourselves plus I felt confident insurance would cover the ambulance fees, although we still had a hefty out of pocket.
  12. I purchased three for 'kids' at Christmas. My DIL fell in love with hers first. She is a graduate student. After she figured out how to use hers, uploading to OneNote and organizing, she helped my high schooler who has been using her Rocketbook since that point. My own college student has yet to convert from paper to the Rocketbook. It just doesn't suit her own note taking process which is very detailed. Although one can use many different colored inks, highlighters, and more, she prefers her own method on actual paper.
  13. We had this same dilemma yesterday. We normally just leave it put together in the basement storage. We are downsizing considerably and that is no longer an option. My husband went on Amazon and found artificial tree bags for a reasonable price. Ordered!
  14. Miranda: BBC comedy (with Chummy from Call the Midwife). Hilarious. Hulu Coupling: Pretty sure Hulu. BBC, a raunchier Friends if you ask me.
