  1. My primary computer/laptop, Samsung, upgraded a couple of days ago. The total process took a little over 4 hours. The d/l wasn't that long, but the install was Loooooooooooooong. The laptop is an I7 with 12gb ram so it isn't a slow unit. I also have a Surface Pro 6 and it is not "ready for 2004 yet".
  2. Thanks Kirk. I have a policy of NEVER clicking on a link from any email. If if is something I may be interested in I go to that web site directly. It is certainly tempting in a moment of "surfing" to click on one of those and you definitely never know.
  3. Anne isn't running the volunteers, but she is still around. They rotate the ranger''s responsibility occasionally to not burn then out.
  4. No Kirk. They extended it through 5-31. All reservations were cancelled through 5-31 so we have been receiving a lot of Memorial Day Weekend calls from upset campers. I have nothing more to offer as of right now.
  5. I am currently a host at Jennings Ferry COE park near Akron, AL. As of this morning we are scheduled to open 5-18 as are the other COE parks in this COE district in western Alabama. Note I said "as of this morning" since all rules are final unless they are changed.
  6. I'm going to sit this out and see how fast the market recovers. I have not taken my RMD this year and may or may not depending on what happens between now and the end of the year. I have approx half of my losses recovered on existing investments right now so I wasn't hurt too bad. I don't need the withdrawal so I'm sitting tight......
  7. How about using a "segmented" tire/wheel on your mower? They don't have air in them so they can't go flat.
  8. My 2006 has been paid for for a long time now and I'm definitely not interested in a new truck. It has 205,000 on the ODO and is still going strong. Yes, some normal wear and tear items have been replaced, but all is good and a lot cheaper to maintain than buy a new one for $60,000+. I get 12 mpg =/- 0.5 towing my 5th wheel and 19'ish non-towing. It was exactly the same when it was brand new. Happy Fulltimer here and Merry Christmas to all here.
  9. I have been using a Slimline dish on a tripod for over 9 years full time. I'm glad to know it is not allowed.
  10. What will happen when the "Green Groups" figure out that millions of new electric cars contain batteries, and more than 1 per car, with lots and lots of foul chemicals that will have to be recycled/disposed of in some manner. And let's not forget as lead acid batteries charge they produce hydrogen gas which is explosive in the right concentrations. There is no free ride or quick easy answer. One problem being solved creates others.
  11. I agree completely. I have been with the same company since 2012, but different plans about every other year. It seems that each plan I have had had "rate creep" each year. When the creep got enough I would change plans (just like you said above). For 2020 the company doubled my annual cost - Nope! I just changed companys/plan a few minutes ago. I will have to get new Rx's for the new company, but would have to do that for the old company also so no big deal.
  12. That $56 monthly premium must be universal for Humana because that is exactly what mine would be going up to. And I switched to the same provider you did too and the same monthly premium. But as I said in another post I always look at the total annual cost, premium and drug cost, not the monthly premium only.
  13. I agree. I use the calculator on the medicare.gov site and set it for the lowest annual cost. I don't care about the monthly premium amount, I want to know the lowest total annual cost.
  14. I have a part "D" plan with Humana since 2012. I have changed plans a time or two with them due to reduced costs, etc. But now I'm leaving Humana completely. They obviously are exiting the portion of the business that I participate in since they are doubling my monthly premium for 2020 and increasing the deductible also. Since I won't spend even the deductible amount during the year I am switching to the cheapest plan for my area and by by to Humana. The premium amount they are going up to makes no sense for me. I am fortunate that I only take cheap drugs, at least so far anyway.
