Continue to push for legislation barring health insurers to collect your SS#. Simple as that. It was only last year or the year before they were forced NOT to use your SS# as your member ID.

As I keep telling folks, your health care records contain everything people need to steal your identity and they are not secure. Low lifes inhabit the bottom rungs of health care and can easily get this info. Happens all the time.

BCBS is only offering a year. Better than nothing but does not make me any less pissed.

A stupid restaurant close to a boardwalk has bribed and cronied their way into putting a fence in a middle one of the few off-the-street bike paths we have to "prevent accidents". The bike path is part of the NYC Greenway and is in a middle of a city park. The stupid bastards weren't contempt with having their customer's cars vallet parked in a middle of a bike path and now they have split the longest bike path we have right in half (tm iammatt). The parks department's spokesperson mentioned they may "further evaluate" their decision to allow the building of the fence and painting over the city bike lane if the community "is not in favor of it". This would be a first time for me, but I intend to complain to any city, state and federal representative I have.

What could your state or federal representatives possibly do?

Public bike path?
On public property?

I'd take it down. Make sure you phone The Times so they have a photographer there while you do it.

I was down visiting a new distributor in Peru, and when we went out for lunch he left me the bill, two days running. there is very specific and accepted protocal for this shit - when i visit a distributor in his country, he pays for the meals. not a lot of money, and he did take me to a barbque on the weekend, just the principal of the damn thing pisses me off.

Interesting - I would think in most situations the supplier entertains the customer/client and pays the bill.

The owner of an apartment unit comparable to mine (four floors above, same floor plan) just cut her asking price by $26,000. It is now selling for $19,000 more than what I paid six years ago.

^^ I feel your pain. Four floors below (same floorplan) was once listed at about 20% lower than our purchase price a year earlier. It never sold which, thankfully, made me think it had major issues.


I have a project I'm working on at work. My boss just gave me edits and I've completed them all except one. I just cannot bring myself to get started on it. It is not an insignificant piece of work, but it's not like I have to scale a mountain either. But I'm just not motivated. Ugh.

I hear you Chaser. I'm watching two areas and each of them makes me see red. The neighborhood where my current house is (no forclosures thankfully) then the general area where I plan to build my dream house. A couple of foreclosures really driving down comps in that zip code.

I am in a similar situation here. Our neighbor across the street just put their house up for sale with an asking of just $59,000 more than we paid 6 yrs ago. Similar layout as our house, except their main floor is actually bigger than ours. I think they drastically underpriced the house and from what they told us they aren't desperate to move, they are just hoping they can trade up into a bigger house at a bargain price.

This is a good thing to keep in mind with the RE market the way it is in most locales. If a person can upgrade at a steep discount why not leave a little money on the table when selling your present home?

Put pressure on the Parks Department to have the fence removed. Just because they don't serve on a local government body they still get involved with the local issues. A year ago we received a letter from our congressmen saying how he was fighting for us by putting pressure on the DOT to fix a storm drain next to my neighbor's house.

I was tempted. Not sure about The Times, but one of the local TV News stations may be interested in this story.
