Maybe you could open a new one?

So CWS, can you bring us up to date on how the girls are doing?

Okay...here's the deal. In November I had my right knee replaced. Now comes the insurance vultures. I've kept my eye on all things that have been submitted but the one that made my head twirl around was the one I received a few days ago.

It was from a lab company that did some blood tests/etc. stuff. After it was all said and done and my insurance company waved their wand over the proceedings, I received a bill for ...................... 42 cents. Hello?!

I'm still scratching my head. The stamp to mail the payment is more than the balance due.

Yep, taxlady! I'm considering not paying it. Let's see what 42 cents will do to the powers that be. Before I do that, I'm going to see if the agency is part of my medical providers that I see on a regular basis. If that's the case, the next time I'm there for whatever reason, I'll present them with a quarter, a nickel, a dime and two pennies. "Paid in full" as far as I am concerned.

I've been reading the manual for my new Galaxy S III phone. It's 166 pages long. I can't find out how to display my contact list alphabetized by last name, instead of first name. It also synced my contacts from Google, which I didn't want. I wanted it synced with my Windows address book. That's what I have been syncing my iPhone with. I also want the time in 24 hour format, not AM and PM.

This is giving me a headache. I will have to watch some YouTube videos. Dang, I don't want to study, just to use my phone. I can't even find the calendar or how to get an address out of my contact list into Google maps. I can usually just play around with phones and software and figure out most of the stuff. Too tired to deal with it any more tonight.

No, no. Just nickels and pennies. And you want a signed receipt.

I love my phone. I make calls, get calls, and on the front it tells me the time, date am or pm. I could text, but I don't know how, have no interrest in learning. Life is so simple.

I apologize TL. I just couldn't resist. Good luck.

I'm having a problem with my computer. This is serious, because I can't play Spider Solitaire without tearing my hair out. Like I said, serious. Sometimes I can't get the cards to move, or they'll move halfway and jump back and I'll have to try numerous times at which point I just give up and exit out. Also, I need to copy and paste all the funny stuff you guys post on "Today's Funny" but I'm having trouble highlighting the picture -- the picture will start to move instead. Grrr.

Can't afford a new computer or to lose any more hair. Have pity, someone.
