Off-Topic / bugs and their bites
« on: January 16, 2018, 06:29:24 am »Message ID: 1191924
I was reading a post here talking about winter weather being too cold for bugs.
reference was made that bugs in the south are more dangerous.
I can attest to that. Last March, I got bit by "something" [I didn't see what bit me]
I went through burning skin, red rash and swelling. It took me two months to get over that one.
I bought a compression sock sleeve AND bug spray after that experience.
I will be moving north to TN. to be near my sisters and their families. :rose: :rainbow:

Zicam [a brand name made of natural ingredients] "extreme congestion relief" clears the congestion.
there still seems to be a process of a few days that we have to go through.

I am buying some eucalyptus oil to keep on hand all the time.
zinc lozenges will be kept in my cupboard in my house as well.

Off-Topic / shopping

I was buying clothes items from a certain store online for a few years.
 I was a repeat customer.....until last year.
when an item was on back order, I got an email from customer service asking me if I wanted to wait.  I should have responded to the email.
I called in and was pressured to buy a  $100 visa gift card and just pay $4 postage.
He didn't sound like the regular employee and he wouldn't leave me alone. I just hung up. I found all the items that were on their website somewhere else.

some require you return the item to the local store when you buy online.
they won't send you a return label.
one company told me that they don't have the employees to make sure the merchandise works properly before they ship it. I followed the directions. when they sent me a second one,they didn't want the broken one back, of course.  the stores we buy from, no matter where they are, get their merchandise from a wholesaler. You aren't really buying from the company.

Off-Topic / freezing

I just talked to someone in Tennessee.
It is freezing there.
The customer care rep said he was the only one who came into work.
the others were afraid to drive on the roads.
every state should be required to have salt trucks.
the whole country is cold.

Some of us grew up watching the *bleep* Van Dyke Show.
I was impressed at how well Jerry and *bleep* worked together.
They seemed to get along well as brothers.

Off-Topic / kleenex tissues
« on: January 07, 2018, 08:04:19 am »Message ID: 1190267
are referred to as facial tissues.
Puff's and Kleenex brands are dominating the market.
I did a search to see how they are made.
they are made from wood.
no wonder some are so rough on the nose.
I did discover some businesses are making them from bamboo, a green plant.
I found another who added eucalyptus oil. [that will help you clear your sinuses.]
Who wants to keep our trees? [we need them to be able to breathe]
softer "facial tissue" is best

I had a coat from Lands End that covered my face.
It was my favorite. I kept a photo of it.
I think they still sell it.
I gave that coat away. I kept another winter coat.

I also had insulated gloves.....still have them for when I return north.
I plan a move to Tennessee to be close to my sisters and brother again.
I have been down in FL. with my parents for 20 years.

Off-Topic / In the trunk

People put all kinds of things in their trunk.
If someone at work needs something, a coworker just might have it in the trunk.
