I'm glad you got to have a cat, but you do realize that you don't own the cat, don't you? Dogs have owners; cats have staff.
Oh I know that all too well. If he could talk I'm sure he'd say "have a great day at work earning money to buy my treats, food and litter"

Glad something finally fixed that leg of your Addie. If I had been you, as soon as that leg was better I would have marched myself right over to MGH and kicked those doctors in their butts.

Went looking for the top ranked hospitals in the country. Oddly, MGH actually shows up in the top three best for a couple categories. The other odd thing I noticed was that even though Boston newscasters mention how the hospitals up here are the best in the country there are two names that are recurring in a lot of categories - Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic, with Johns Hopkins showing up quite a bit too. I don't remember any of those hospitals being in New England.

Our Target used to sell Fleishman's pizza crust yeast. It was the best thing ever if you did not have time, but wanted to make a pizza. All it took was half an hour from start to finish and Pizza was done. I cannot find it any more, not anywhere in town. Too bad.

Charlie have you considered asking at the store's Customer Service booth? It couldn't hurt to ask.

Yeah, I have, more than ones. It is all corporate, and they don't care. For example. For years I have been buying sleepers in Target. There is this one particular kind my wife likes, but they only have them in size up to 10. In Minnesota? The land of Vikings and Amazon women? Size 10? I don't get it.

My neighbor bought herself a new set of pots and pans 3 months ago. She bought T-Fal. She really likes them. But the handles keep coming unscrewed. I told her to contact T-Fal. She did.

I can't believe the reply she got. They told her to box up the whole set and mail them to New Jersey. Then in about 4 - 6 weeks she would either receive them back repaired or have a new set delivered.

To me that is completely outrageous.

She has to pay for the shipping of a faulty product, she will be without her entire set for 4 - 6 weeks ???

Not very good custmer service I would say !

So I guess we will get some lock-tite and put the screws back in the handles for her.
