  1. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced hotel close to OHSU in Portland? A "middle of the ground" type? Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express or something like that? NOT an el cheapo like Motel Six. NOT an executive conference like Marriott or Hyatt. This would be for our initial appointment with the doctor. Only a two or three night stay. Thanks!
  2. Thank you to everyone for all the hugs, prayers, kind words, links, phone numbers, and ideas. I am too tired tonight to follow through with anything, but will certainly look into resources.
  3. Does anyone know of a good website or you tube video that teaches sentence revision? Specifically, revising sentences to not use the word "I?" I'm teaching a business communication class in community college this semester. Although the word "I" is allowed, the OVERUSE of "I" is not allowed. Having a short video or worksheet (or both) would be useful for this group of students. Thanks! Pam
  4. We've had several bouts of unemployment over the years. And, have had to use retirement funds to eat and live. And, had to pay the taxes and penalties, yes... but you must eat. We've also incurred debt because of those years... working to pay that off now. We are at an age when our friends are retiring, but we can't because we like to eat. We are investing a little in retirement again... but it won't be enough. So.....???????
  5. Great. No wonder why I don't come here anymore. The first message I see is going to cause a hot-bed of disagreement on the boards. Yuck.
  6. Go ahead, honey, and whine away! We all need to vent. I tend to vent too much sometimes. Hope you have a relaxing evening.
  7. I am so sorry you are going through this. Don't have anything to say really... other than ((( hugs to you ))).
  8. Maybe try a different brand or use more cubes?
  9. I'm sure they have security for the employees. Also , managing the food court is a little different than being in the classroom. I am surprised that she did not research the school before being interviewed for the job.
  10. I drive 20 to thirty minutes for all our activities!!! Will you have some money to remodel in a few years time? To make it ideal? It sounds like you like this house BETTER than you like your current house! You will be able to paint and decorate and make it really cute! Or live in it a few years... while looking for your ideal house... and sell for a nice profit later. Think... What can I do to love this house? If you can't think of anything... then maybe pass on the offer. OR... If you can think of some things you DO love about it, or COULD love about it.... then maybe buy it.
  11. I've never heard of Halloween Gnomes. I felt that I had been "lied to" by my parents. Why would they do that to me? What else is a lie? I did not want my children to feel that betrayal. For dh, it was a religious issue. If we can't see Santa and it turns out that he is not real.... well, we can't see Jesus, is He real? Santa and the TF are fun to pretend and play. St. Nicholas was real. Jesus is real.
  12. Trends in "age at marriage" could be a good research topic. I think the trend of later marriage ages ( late 20s to mid thirties) is a rather recent , historically speaking. It was not too long ago that being twenty-five and unmarried was considered an "old maid." In my sphere, ages have ranged from 17 to thirty five. Not all numbers on my computer work. Sorry.
  13. Sorry you are in this situation. I would follow your paid lawyer's advice and telll the neighbor that you do appreciate her help, but now the situation is being handled by lawyers and you are not sure how it will all turn out.
  14. I am not ordering online. I need to have my frames adjusted and fitted locally. I will probably just find the least expensive and go with that.
