  1. I just got a post in one of my other groups and thought I would share here. The weather feature of the ACTIVE button is back on DirecTV channel 362 when you press the RED button.
  2. UPDATE: Today 7 Days after the recipient received the notice that certified mail was available for him to pick up the letter was located in the office it was sent to. The PO was extremely apologetic. My only hope is that whatever happened to it will be fixed so it won't happen again. Thankfully this situation is now in my rear view mirror. Safe Travels All...
  3. A RV park we stayed in last summer was in a rural area and the town so small they don't have enough postal employees to do deliveries so they sub contract delivery to non postal employees to deliver in the outlying areas.
  4. Postal employees have physically looked on two separate occasions for the letter. The tracking shows it was last scanned and received at the Spring TX post office and the business has received their mail in a PO Box there for several years. The business receive the slip in their mail box that they have a certified letter waiting for them. So where ever they store certified mail for pick up is where it got lost in that office. Hopefully it wasn't given to another customer.
  5. Thank you for the positive thoughts. Unfortunately time is of the essence so I will have to recreate my documents and resend. I doubt I will get a refund on the certified mail "service" or acknowledgement for my inconvenience. I am glad your camera transaction was a success. Being an optimist ... I rarely have to use the US mail and as technology advances, at what seems like the speed of light, it will eventually be a thing of the past as most documents will be processed electronically and products will eventually all be shipped by companies other that the USPS. Interesting stats on Amazon, Fedex, UPS and USPS: https://www.axios.com/amazon-shipping-chart-fedex-ups-usps-0dc6bab1-2169-42a8-9e56-0e85c590eb89.html Who would of ever thought we'd pay for products with a cell phone ie Apple Pay or Android Pay, technology is progressing at the speed of light.:)
  6. Yes the recipient received the notice from their post office. They also provided all the tracking stops along the way to assist in locating it. They checked with them again this morning 1-10-2020 and it is still now found nor does the post office update the online tracking to show that someone checked in to pick it up. It would appear that any stats from the Post Office are questionable as they don't keep transactions current. I have contacted two of the postmasters involved this morning and have not heard back from them. The item was last scanned in the Spring TX post office where it was to be picked up. So it is somewhere in the Spring TX post office.
  7. I sent a letter via certified mail on January 2nd, 2020 to be able to confirm the recipients receipt. On January 7th 2020 the recipient went to the post office to pick it up and the clerk couldn't find it??? I located the postmasters of the offices listed on the tracking site and am contacting them to see if they could assist. So far no luck Has anyone here had experience with trying to locate missing certified mail? I took a long shot and also checked my escapees mail to see if they by any chance had sent it back to my return address, and it wasn't there.
  8. Just wondering how many existing Plan F users changed to Plan G or stayed in Plan F this past enrollment period? https://www.ehealthinsurance.com/medicare/supplement-all/is-medicare-supplement-plan-f-going-away Is Medicare Supplement Plan F being discontinued? Apparently so, for some people. According to congress.gov, starting in 2020, Medicare Supplement plans that pay the Medicare Part B deductible will no longer be sold to those newly eligible. This change is part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). If you already have Medicare Supplement Plan F (or Plan C, which also covers the Part B deductible), you can generally keep it. If you were eligible for Medicare before January 1, 2020, you may be able to buy Medicare Supplement Plan F or Plan C. If you qualify for Medicare on January 1, 2020 or later, you may not be able to buy Medicare Supplement Plan F or Plan C. Medicare Supplement Plan F: how much is the deductible in question? The Medicare Part B deductible, which is the deductible amount involved in the MACRA legislation, can change every year. In 2019, it’s $185. That’s the amount you have to pay before Part B pays for covered services. Is there another Medicare Supplement plan that may be comparable? If you become eligible for Medicare in 2020 or later, although you may not be able to buy Medicare Supplement Plan F or Plan C, you may be able to buy a very similar plan. Medicare Supplement Plan G generally has the same basic benefits as Plan F, except for the Part B deductible. A high-deductible version of Plan G might become available in 2020, according to Oregon.gov. So, you might want to look into Plan G.
  9. Each states licensing and qualifications for practicing medicine is different. I found this site helpful in looking up medical practitioners: https://www.healthguideusa.org/medical_license_lookup.htm Also google the Dr for reviews, you do have to read between the lines as each individuals expectations are different. Here is one source for Dr reviews: https://www.healthgrades.com/ Here is a link to Yelp Dr's in Mcallen: https://www.yelp.com/c/mcallen/physicians Good luck with your search and looking forward to you sharing your your findings here.
  10. We have been making some trips away from our RV and confess we like to watch TV but hate commercials so looking into something we can carry with us to put in rentals to record shows and replay without commercials. I will look into portable DVR's that we might be able to connect to the TV where we stay. Thank you for the suggestions.
  11. Usually if it sounds to good to be true it is.....I just saw an infomercial for HD Free Unlimited Antenna: https://www.hdfreeunlimited.com/?mid=11026678&gclid=CjwKCAiAzuPuBRAIEiwAkkmOSDZHDYjYnYEkGw3xGUiLpcRxRkK8_XJV-Vkt8r-4mTBPn1NUcKpxlxoCHhIQAvD_BwE Has anyone tried this? What is the catch?
  12. Each states licensing and qualifications for practicing medicine is different. We have visited Dr's and Dentists in several states and learn you should not assume anything. On one occasion I injured my shoulder and used the site to eliminate two dr's that had board actions for DUI's. Another time while looking for a dentist one had board actions against the license for performing procedures on city employees and their children without prior authorization.

  14. Teething.....Keep um busy. I started her young teaching her to fetch and we would toss a ball or a toy for her to retrieve everyday. We had/have a plethora of toys, chews and treats available in her toy box. TJ Max, Marshalls, Costco/Sams and Ross are good sources of discounted toys. The only thing she chewed was the back of an oak end table when she was around 4 mos old. Someone told us to put hot sauce on it but we found out she loved hot sauce. Being in the small confines of an RV we were able to keep an eye on her and kept her entertained with toys and lots of walks. (Thankfully she is not a door dasher) We also used our baby gate outside so she could get used to being off leash but staying near us and to get her used to lots of distractions from others in the rv parks. Until she was able to jump over the gate we also had play dates with other puppies in the park to help with her socialization. The gate took up quite a bit of space and some parks don't allow them.
