Off-Topic / Concert Tickets
« on: May 05, 2019, 09:58:32 am »Message ID: 1274025
How much would you pay for concert tickets to see one of your favorite singers or bands.  My daughter just told me about tickets to see someone who will be in the area this summer but they are $150. I told her. "No way! Let me know if you see some for under $100 with seats where we can see and hear." I guess I won't be going. There is no one who I want to see that much.

Off-Topic / Kitchen or Bathroom?
« on: May 05, 2019, 09:42:26 am »Message ID: 1274023
If both rooms could be considered equally messy and dirty, which one would you rather clean? I would pick the kitchen as I simply dislike cleaning bathrooms.  There is no particular reason.  I guess it's just a personal preference. I can spread out cleaning the bathroom over almost a whole day if I am not in the mood, and it is particularly true now that I'm retired. 

Off-Topic / House Furniture
« on: May 05, 2019, 06:39:59 am »Message ID: 1273994
If you had to pick one piece of furniture you would most like to replace in your house, what is it and why?  For me, it would be my bedroom furniture.  If I could, I would sell it and pick pieces that are not nearly as heavy and cumbersome.  I wouldn't have to replace it because it is worn and not nice.  It is actually about 15 years old but you would never know it.  It is in excellent condition. But there is no way I can move any of it myself, and I would need 2, maybe 3, moving men to budge it. I would also never get the money out of it that it is worth so I'm not about to sell it.

Off-Topic / Mattresses and Pillows
« on: May 05, 2019, 06:29:23 am »Message ID: 1273993
So how do you prefer the density of your mattress and pillow?  I like a somewhat soft, plush mattress but it can't be so soft that there is really no support.  However, firm or very firm mattresses are very uncomfortable for me and feel like sleeping on a plywood board. I like pillows that say they are good for combination sleepers, or on my back and side also.  I like it also to be plush but not completely collapse when I lay on it. I think I am going to try pillows that says they stay cool the next time I buy some.

Support / Decision
« on: May 04, 2019, 09:14:37 am »Message ID: 1273835
I have decided that between the amount of surveys I qualify for, surveys I complete and don't credit, and surveys that decide they are going to take back the credit (not many, but 2 within the last 5-6 months), I am no longer going to try to cash out each month.  I have worked on Fusion for close to 4 years, I believe, and have cashed out every month up until now but am getting tired of the daily grind on my 3 sites. My goal is going to be cashing out every other month for at least $40, and if I happen to get lucky, I will more often.

Off-Topic / How Much Do You Pay for a Haircut?
« on: May 03, 2019, 01:50:33 pm »Message ID: 1273691
I pay between $25-$30 to get a haircut.  I refuse to pay more since there is always a tip expected.  I live in mid-Michigan, and I am telling you this as I know where you live dictates the going price of things.  I usually tip $3.00.  What do you tip for your haircut?

Off-Topic / Hairdresser or Doctor?
« on: May 03, 2019, 01:39:10 pm »Message ID: 1273687
This post is probably oriented toward women more than men, but men can surely respond. The question is whether you would rather find a new doctor or a new hairdresser?  Which would be the bigger stressor?
Myself, I have trouble changing hairdressers and have done this the most often.  I have been with my doctor a little over 10 years.  Having medical background, I guess I would just feel comfortable interviewing doctors. However, finding a competent hairdresser at a price that is not ridiculous is no easy matter.  Right now I am settling in with a new hairdresser I have seen about 4 times but I am still not sure as her prices are a bit high. Her skills seem fine so we'll see...

Off-Topic / Brand Loyalty
« on: May 03, 2019, 01:28:16 pm »Message ID: 1273682
I thought I would ask whether anybody on here is loyal to a particular brand for any service or item?  I have taken several surveys lately which was about this and it piqued my curiosity.
Me?  I am only loyal as long as the quality and price seem to intersect.  If the quality falls off, I will look for another brand. If it's something I really want or like, I will pay a little more for quality.  When I think in terms of years, I can't think of any brand I have stayed with to the exclusion of others.

Off-Topic / Ladies: Curl or Straighten?
« on: May 03, 2019, 01:15:15 pm »Message ID: 1273678
So ladies, how do you like to wear your hair? Do you straighten or curl it with an iron?  I like to curl mine but I don't always take the time to do the best job now that I'm retired. I have to be careful when I try to use a straightening iron because I can easily leave "dents" in my hair.  My daughter can use a blow dryer and a brush and make her hair look pretty good. Then she finishes her hair by using a straightening iron for several minutes. I am not that good at using the brush and dryer at the same time.  I feel clumsy when I attempt it!

Off-Topic / European River Cruises
« on: May 01, 2019, 08:34:01 am »Message ID: 1273343
I have one major trip on my bucket list before I get too old.  From my research, I think the river cruises in either eastern or western Europe would be relaxing and fulfilling.
So...I am wondering if anyone has ever been on one or knows someone and got feedback. I would really like to hear what anyone has got to say if you've had personal experience or a good friend or acquaintance that has talked with you about their experience. Thanks!

Off-Topic / Foundation Make-up
« on: April 05, 2019, 07:50:10 am »Message ID: 1269515
Ladies: When you wear foundation, do you usually apply it using your fingers, a sponge, or a brush? Me-I use all three depending on how I'm feeling at the moment and whether I am applying it around my eyes.  Around my eyes I generally use a sponge. Sometimes I pat around my eye a little using the warmth of my finger.  What about you?

Off-Topic / Using the Potty Properly
« on: April 05, 2019, 07:38:23 am »Message ID: 1269503
Okay, I know you were like, "What?" is this about when you saw the title of the thread.  However, I wanted to tell everyone interested that many cities are having problems with people treating their toilets like a garbage can.  There are only 4 "Ps" which should go in the toilet.  Pee, poop, puke, and paper.  Toilet paper, that is!
One big no-no are the so-called flushable wipes.  No, they are not actually "flushable."  They are really mislabelled!  They go down the drain, but they really mess up the pipes.  Other no-nos are hair, pills, feminine products, dental floss, and Q-tips. So, do your city or private septic system a favor and use your toilet what it is supposed to be used for.

Off-Topic / CBD Products
« on: April 04, 2019, 08:23:13 am »Message ID: 1269355
Do you or someone you know use CBD containing products?  What do they use it for and do they find that these products help? I am asking because of several friends who all have pain while one also contends with anxiety. One has a great deal of pain in his hip and lower back and will use nothing beside OTC meds.  I can't blame him in many respects, but watching him I feel sorry for him. 

Off-Topic / Luggage
« on: April 04, 2019, 07:42:53 am »Message ID: 1269347
Do you have enough luggage and the type of luggage to go on a major vacation of over 10 days or so? If you do, is it old or fairly new?  I have luggage but it is about 20 years old.  However, since I travel so little, it looks fairly new.  Just wondering since I am thinking of going on such a trip in the next several years.

Off-Topic / Safety Using Ride Share Services
« on: April 02, 2019, 11:33:47 am »Message ID: 1268994
Would you feel safe either using or driving for a ride share service?  I'm asking after all the problems they've had but particularly after the young woman in South Carolina was abducted and murdered. For myself, I would never use one unless I had no other choice.  I would also try not to ride alone, ask the driver his name and look that it matches his ID before closing the car door, and lastly, ask who they are supposed to be picking up.
