LOL!! Which tip did I offer? You are welcome, of course!

The one about not throwing your head back when taking pills, tilt your head down instead. The stroke victim thing. I, too, found this works really well! Thanks PF!

Oh! Yes, that is a good trick. I was running my brain through applesauce, pudding, crushing...

You are very welcome...I didn't know I gave such good advice!

I told DH about it too, he was impressed and uses the technique as well.

DH came downstairs swearing a blue streak. The TV remote wasn't working. He'd tried everything, he couldn't change the channel, it wouldn't go on and off, what was I gonna do about it? I changed the batteries, and it now works just fine. Huh.

We have a fancy Logitech remote with a little lcd screen on it, for days it has been giving the message "please replace batteries". Rob has been contorting his body trying to get it to work since I guess the signal was weak. He couldn't get the shows to stop fast forwarding during the commercials because the batteries were so weak. Finally I said, "stop being so lazy and get some new batteries out of the drawer!" He says "oh, it works a lot better now" gee I must be some kind of genius or something!

Shrek gets mad at things and throws them away, I dig them out, change the batteries and put them back. Several times he has thanked me for getting him a new "whatever".

Yuh. That inspection was for HUD. For the past two years HUD inspected my apartment and gave them a list of things that needed to be fixed. They wrote them up and never did them. That happened two years in a row. HUD came back for the third year and fined them a hefty fine for not doing the work. They had just two weeks to get it done or they would have a bigger fine. The work got done including the painting of the walls and ceilings. HUD came back and the work passed. There were only two apartments that HUD was interested. Mine and one where the woman is a hoarder. They were told to get her apartment cleaned out or they would go to court and get her evicted and placed in medical custody.

This inspection is the yearly one that is in the lease. Because they just did all the work, inspecting my apartment will be just cursory. HUD inspects about four apartments at random. They also inspect the mechanics of the building and the grounds. This inspection is for ALL apartments only.
