So many children have been killed so far this year in Chicago from drive-by shootings and beatings.

Amen to that. I posted something earlier today (then deleted it) using that exact phrase. I feel like I've been doing that for the last two years. I feel like in many ways my forties (so far) are going to waste. I hope to turn that around real soon.


EDIT: Here's to the imminent end of stagnation. {#Cheers}

The steroid treatment on my shoulder failed, so now I have to wait to see an orthopedic guy. Plus, my truck broke down today.

That really does suck. There's very few of those beautiful old bridges left.

{#Yes} Yup. I was checking out the RCN web site, and even the basic internet plan gives you 2 GB of storage. (click on "included Features")

Oh, Rach! One of these days I have to find some time to look at your Mac and clean things up.

Meanwhile, who provides your internet? Most companies have online storage space that is part of the deal. For instance, I know that Comcast gives each customer 1 GB on online storage space. You might be already paying for something you're not using.

i bought two external hard drives.   i am thinking of maybe getting space on the internet better, because i had a hard drive die, that is why i have two now, but i am not sure they are all on there and i am afraid to press delete on my computer,  now the sound doesn't work because i have too much on my computer (i think that is the reason, there is no input controls)...

 anyway, do you or anyone have a recommendation for an internet storage?  i was looking at drop box.   i am not happy to have a lifetime monthly bill, and if i have to have one then i'd like it to be as little as need be.  but is that safe, what if they go out of business?

That sucks and I feel your angst as a family member did a similar thing to me when my Mom was dying of cancer. Even though I was to be the executor of the estate behind my back they tried to get my Mom declared incompetent while she was still alive so they could raid what was left of the liquid assets. And I still had to split the money from the sale of her house with them afterwards. They made my Moms last days a lot more of a hell than it already was.
 
Ironically, when my mom was mentally incompetent, they got her to change her will, write big checks (while in a mental ward, no less) and God knows what else.  I already had durable medical power of attorney, but my family lawyer advised me that I couldn't use it because "I was too controversial" which is a polite way of saying that my reputation was trashed.  I lost my dad when I was a teenager, and for a couple of years I didn't think that I would ever see my mother.

Fortunately Mom landed on all four feet.  She's in assisted living, is waited on hand and foot, and if she spends every last dime she has, they'll keep her at the same standard of living as long as she lives.  She turned 88 on the 1st of this month, and will probably live to be 100 at this rate.  So my mission is successful after all that.

Thanks for the kind words and sharing your own stories!

  That kind of crap is just awful. My grandmother is in a home now, and she has convinced herself the family has taken all her money. I'm sure it's because she signed a durable PoA, which was of course the sensible thing, but she's losing her grip on such details. My Dad does what he can to mollify her, but it's kind of mess. I really do not believe the family has any nefarious plans. Certainly not my father, who has no need of her money in the first place, but also has enough savvy and wherewithal to put a stop to anything untoward. Not everyone is so lucky: it's disgusting how money and death can bring out the worst in some people.
