Good bread, toasted.

Thin layer mayo

Ripe German red strawberry or Cherokee Purple tomatoes

Basil

That's it. Nothing else needed

Edit. Salt and pepper of course

He's come down with bronchitis--such a terribly nasty cough and a bit of laryngitis. He actually went to the doctor and got a z-pack and some cough medicine with codeine. He tried some of the stuff that I had leftover from Spain and it worked. So, he figured that he should get his own. And yes, his back is still giving him problems--worker's comp & doctor issues--stupidity and ineptitude in the office.

When I got 16 tablets of some sort of fever reducer and about 9 ounces of cough medicine with codeine in Spain it cost $4.89 US. Our prescription plan would not cover the cough medicine--even though it was prescribed by a doctor--"because the over-the-counter medicines should do the job"! So, ddeuddeg had to pay $17+ out of pocket. Grrr! But, it worked. He's much better. Thanks for asking!

On the bright side, temps are finally going down here in SoCal, and my grass is green!!



Edit: My lawn is green! The lawn!! Sheesh!


We saw all kinds of dryness in Spain and once we got home, too. Our lawn is a disaster area this year, We gave up on watering--especially since it was so hot and we were away so much. A few weeks ago, we drove to my brother's place, about 40 minutes away out in the country and there was a lot of greenery such as we had not seen since springtime. Apparently, they got some rain that we had not gotten. It really was very noticeable.

We are having a beautiful fall season--temps in the 60s, last few days in the low 70s. 50s at night. Ahhhh, fall. Problem: we're going to Stratford, Ontario tomorrow morning. They are talking 35 mph gusts! This is NOT nice. I want to be able to walk around this quaint little town and enjoy the sights and not get completely windblown and freezing. Oh, yeah, high temp 62 low of 44! I so don't know how to dress for the weekend. It's going to be like Sparky & JavaDrinker in Chicago in January!

my order went through at full price (for the large sets), and even though the original responses I got pre-order from customer service said they would adjust the price, the response I got AFTER ordering was that they would not, so I ended up cancelling. But it took a while and was annoying to deal with.

We haven't had a true rainstorm here is South Dakota since May. A drizzle here and there, but nothing worth opening the umbrella. I've mowed my lawn three times this year. The lakes (which aren't in abundance out here on the prairie) are drying up.

I think the major problem is that your Customer Service people do not READ the emails at all.

Got a response, and Phil indicated that the order was "improperly canceled on their end". Huh?

If he had read the original email, he would have found out that it was not "improperly" canceled.

AND, still didn't let me know if it was a refurb or new.


I know they are rated on how fast they can help people, but the metric needs adjustment, because I don't consider it helpful.

improperly canceled? That's kind of an either/or deal. There aren't varying degrees of canceled. Good luck!

Would it kill people to be 5' early for the appt? I know there are times that I run behind when people need it, but I try to run my schedule in such a way to minimize that. Of course, the first patient of the afternoon has to show up late...really f's up the rest of the day. grrr.....

They sold it as New, but then emailed saying it was Refurb and refunding $15 because it was refurb, but that we could cancel the whole order if we responded by 12 noon CT on Wednesday.

Which is one thing I really like about Woot! ... if something isn't as advertised, they tell us.


So I responded by the deadline to cancel the order. It showed canceled. Then all of a sudden I got a shipping notice and it was un-canceled.

My last PCP appointment. I was the FIRST appointment of the day, 8:30. I like the first because it's usually on time. Figured I'd show up at 8:15 and maybe get in a few mins early. Was slightly promising when the nurses took me back at 8:25, took vitals, etc. The doc finally showed up at 9:10. Seriously?
I know you run a tighter ship DocO, but what exactly is the excuse for the first appointment? Oh, he had to catch up on some charting. WHAT? Do that in the evening, or between clients or lunch or whenever you are supposed to. Don't start the ENTIRE day behind and RUSH YOUR APPOINTMENTS. sheesh.

That was a fail.

Clinic time is for seeing patients. I hate when my nurse comes up and asks me about some patient call that can wait for the 5 minutes that I call lunch.

If people show up early, I usually stay early or ahead of schedule, unless I get a bunch of complex people in a row, then I'm screwed. Also, I try to not get too irritated about some people showing up late, as I see quite a few people on public assistance, and it's a minor miracle for them just to make it to the appointment.

Yeah, no.

I followed along fine. I'm just curious about the terminology. It was kind of a nice way of saying, see there was this pooch, and it was giving me a look, so I screwed it.

I think you are the exception to the rule if you try to stay close to your schedule!! I have one dr. that I know will be running at least 30 min. late!! But I can't complain as she does take the time with her patients if they need. I had a neurologist who ran about 1 hour late.... but then again, if I needed the extra time I got it.

If you're still having problems, PM me the details: order number, exactly what you want done or need to know.
