This is timely! I just checked my debit card statement, the one we use for trips and vacations, and saw we had a grand total of $6.66 left. Yikes! Thankfully we didn't quite get to overdrawing. Off goes a check to Charles Schwab to replenish.

A local news story here has a women getting a Publishing Clearing House winner check for $5,000. She deposits it. It shows up in her account. Immediately she starts paying off her bills to the tune of thousands of dollars. 3 days later, the check is deemed invalid by the bank.

She's suing the bank for the slow process. She won't win.

Checks $10,000 or more by law have to arrive via certified mail. Checks below $10,000...it's open season for fraudsters.

Back in my poor days, I deposited a worthless check on a Friday and the bank allowed me to immediately draw cash from the ATM, even tho my bank account balance didn't have squat to back it up. I made good on that check by Monday, but got free cash over the weekend. They've since closed that loophole, lol.

Petty Vents

Every single snitch of my dill seeds that I planted are gone. They were lovely, now they're no longer. No fronds, no seeds, no roots, nada. I have no problem sharing with the swallowtail caterpillars, but I have a feeling the bunnies did it.

I bet you're right, Dawg. I found a poster you could put up - maybe someone could catch that bandit.

I don't get this $%$@!!!! Loom.!

Usually if it's something that's hard and really intricate I can master it no time. Give me something as simple as this weaving loom and everything goes to pots!

I can't get it to pick up the yarn to weave. The warping is correct. Tension is ok. (My Tension is through the roof)

It has to be something simple. I just don't see it.

Taking classes for it are out of the question for a while.

Munky, I thought this loom was to help you relax.

Have you checked Youtube for videos on weaving? I ask this seriously, because they have videos for practically everything. When I took a pottery class, I had trouble holding my hands "just so" in order to mold the clay as it spun on its disc base. Watching a couple of videos (and looking like a fool at the laptop, cupping my hands around air) helped me a lot when I went back the next week. And it's how Himself has found out the best ways to replace the headlight in his Milan (there is a little trap door you access from under the car, I think) and the best way to drop in a new garbage disposal when your old one dies.

Youtube! Good luck. AND relax!
