I visit here almost every day, sometimes a few times a day. Just want to see what my friends are up to.

I've also saved a ton of money on all kinds of things over the past 10+ years here. (Including the risk of delaying taking Part D!)

I do tend to avoid threads that have over 60 posts (yes, this is #62) as I feel that the question at hand has been answered and we're now in thread tangents. (Yes, I'm one of the biggest offenders of thread tangents!)

Living well is the best revenge!

  • Predictive text that isn't
  • Folding fitted sheets

Okay: Iím not a long time poster here, neither a big poster, nor the brightest light bulb on the block. But life (quickly) changes and Iím here 24/7 (really more like 18/7). Reading/posting here is better than whatever else TV/internet offers.

Fallen with a broken leg and getting sick on top of it will help you lose 10 pounds. If you can get to frig, there is nothing you want in it.

Google ďturn off predictive textĒ and your device and you should be set to go.

Folding fitted sheets: Gather corners, shake out big wrinkles. Lay out flat, poke out the corners, then stretch out elastic so it is straight, slowly release and re-poke the corners if required. Use the elastic edge as one of the long edges and fold the rest of the sheet towards the elastic edge (donít move the elastic edge). If it does not work, see the end of the first sentence. Anyway, DW says my folded sheets look like how they come from the store. Takes me an hour to fold a big basket of clothes, DW a quarter of that. Iím so jealous of DW. Ok, need to read more posts so I can work on that lightbulb brightness thing.

I joined thirteen or so years ago. Still read topics of interest somewhat regularly and really appreciate all the wisdom here. This forum helped me to ESR back then and later to fully RE. It is the main forum I read. Thank you to all the posters who were so helpful.

Worked the plan and now living the Dream!
