I am happy that the end of July will be here soon because at that time I will no longer be contracted with my current phone provider. It has been a long and rock road with this provider from the get go, so I have been counting the months until I can bid them ado and find a better plan, better signals in my area as well as getting a much better cell phone out of the deal. I don’t need a whole lot but need what I want to be good and reliable.
OK, I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about Online Trading here lately, so I’ve taken a bit of time to look online and find out a bit more about today”s IRA Accounts and other Stocks, Mutual Funds and ETFs along with all the other Stock Trading Options that are out there for folks who are turning to Online Broker opportunities.
I haven’t spent much time dabbling into stocks in such a long time, but there was a time that I was spending some money and spending more time worrying about all what could go wrong, and certainly some of it did. I ended up pulling out before I it really got bad and really didn’t have more to do with it and never thought that I would again.
Firstrade.com was recommended to me by a good friend who has recently started researching these complicated, but sometimes lucrative Stock Trading deals, so since it is supposed to be raining again all week, I’ll be spending some time on the computer at firstrade.com trying to refresh this old memory and learn a thing or two as well about the world of high finance in the 21st century!
I have been going to our local Rite-Aid for all of our prescription needs for many years now, even though there are a ton of other pharmacies around that I could be doing my business with that are closer to the house and possibly may have better prices to offer. But when I find something or somebody good I tend to stick with it to the end, a creature of habit as they say. But it looks like I’ll be needing to find a new place to transfer all of our prescriptions to since I discovered that every last one of their pharmacy employees have up and left the pharmacy. We now have all new people behind the pharmacy counter that don’t appear to know their hind ends from a hole in the ground and I’m no longer comfortable trusting them with our medical care.
So I am looking to see what pharmacies are offering gift cards for transferring your prescriptions to them, but there doesn’t seem to be any of those promotions going on right at this moment, except possibly CVS, and I have never been a big fan of CVS since they changed over years ago from being People’s. As much as I like to trust the Internet for the most current and accurate information I do think that a few phone calls are in order just to make sure and then I’ll decide the best way to handle all of this.
I no longer want or need the old paper version of the local yellowpages, since I have the Internet at my disposal the majority of the time. Yesterday I went on a hunt to find all the phone books in the house yesterday and add them to the recycling bin that is reserved for paper products that gets picked up from the curb every Friday and taken to the recycling center. I was surprised to find that we had over a dozen of these books stashed here and there around the place, just sitting there collecting dust, two of them were from 2006 for goodness sake, so I had no problem collecting them all and getting them out of the house since none of us could even remember the last time we even had a use for any of them.
These days if I want to find information about a business, such as one of our wonderful local restaurants for example, going to a site such as Local.com is the only way to go. The heck with trying to find the most recent phone book in hopes that there might possibly have the listing for the restuarant in question, it is so much easier to quickly go online and find the information with a quick local search. Not only can you get the phone number and address, but in most cases you can get their hours, directions, a menu sample, reviews. make a reservation and other pertanent information that the old paper version of the yellowpages couldn’t possibly provide you with.
Anyway I have found that Local.com is a great resource and I would urge anyone to check them out and see all that it offers there. It also provides you will local events, activities and all types of useful coupons that you can use in your area as well. I was impressed enough to bookmark the site and to speak of it here. It’s all good!
I had the chance to watch a couple episodes of the new hit show on VH1 “Mob Wives” that I’ve been hearing about from several people that have been following it the past couple of months. It is actually a pretty entertaining show that follows four very strong Mob Wives in their daily lives that are trying to deal with life while their “main men” are behind bars.
Renee seems to be the “ring leader” and she has come up with an interesting concept for people to communicate with their loved ones that are locked up,using the Internet and called Jail Mail Inc. So today I went online and Googled “Jail Mail Inc” and I’m pleased to read that this really is a project in the works and I would encourage anyone who has someone close to them who is serving time to check out her website and possibly take advantage of Renee’s long time dream of making it easier to keep in touch with their locked up loved ones via the Internet. It should be up and running by the end of the summer. I’ll keep checking to see her progress and I’ll be watching the Mob Wives season finale at 8:00 tonight to see what these four ladies are up to this week, I’m sure it will be exciting!
