We must be crossing something up here. Just because I use my cell phone as a home phone doesn't mean I want 911 to associate an emergency call with my home address. Not if I'm not there.
The same as the 911 service that came with my new Jeep follows me around no matter where I drive. If I drive to Boston and have to press the button under my mirror that says 911, I don't want it to ring an operator in Erie. I want it to find the nearest tower and the closest 911 operator.
pac - read my last post. It depends where you and your cell phone are at the time the call is placed. You don't have to be at home.

ahh, I'm with you now.
You mean if you live close to a tower located in another jursidiction. True, that could be a problem, but I'll bet it's one they already encounter and have a workaround for. And cell phones can be traced anyway. Just leave it turned on. The same as you are supposed todo with a landline.

But yes, nothing is perfect. I guess the prudent thing would be to program your 911 operator into your speed dial if you live on top of another city's tower.

I'm going "on topic for a second"

I am enjoying a time without my sciatica (or a muscle pull) not acting up and getting some stuff done. I find if I sit too long it triggers it, and if I work too long I get too tired, so I am trying to do 20 mins of one thing then another and it is working. Sleeping is not a problem - I just lay on my other side and am fine.

So, I am making TB's sandwiches for work tomorrow (standing), filling my pill packs for the week (sitting), transferring laundry (bending), and catching up on DC (sitting in a different chair). So far it is working very well.

Yes, I know, another thing wrong with me, but actually this is one of the ones I deal with regularly. I think it was triggered by the pool walking so I am skipping tomorrow to give myself a rest. I will go back Friday.

I will (hopefully) say goodnight now.

Pineapple juice is only good with vodka and blue curacoa

I'm playing around with my door locks again. For some reason I only have one key that works in all my locks. Whenever they make a new key it will only work in the lock I replaced a few months ago, not the other doors. Weird.

Is it a pin thing?

Master keys work different pins within the lock than a single lock key, take a look.

We have our cell phones set up so if one of our contacts calls, their picture appears.

I never call 911. There have been too many screw ups that the police/ambulance has gone to the wrong address and caused a delay in service. I call the local police department direct and request Rescue 8 if I need an ambulance. Luckily I don't need them very often.

I can never decide which I enjoy more. The taste of bile or really severe heartburn that I brought on myself through my own stupidity.
