  1. No, I definitely won't say anything to her about it. She is going through a rough time emotionally as it is (due to other things) and I won't even consider letting her know about this. I do want them to have a good relationship at some point. I don't think it is going to happen, but I pray that it does. I'm still very angry about this, and embarrassingly, still feeling vindictive. (not really in my nature to be like that) Although it is on the behalf of my daughter that I feel this way...I really and truly couldn't care less about relationship with this other woman. She is actually doing me a favor by taking him off my hands. LOL, I was actually tempted to send her flowers and on the note say "he's your problem now" (obviously I didn't though...I do have a little more class than that)
  2. Actually there are some negotiated things. I have printed out his credit card statements since he has moved down to Miami. He has made multiple plane trips and stayed at resorts with his new lady love...while DD and I are suffering financially. I cant find a job until I move back to Florida (when DD heads off to college) and I am not sure how easily it will be to find one. I haven't worked in 19 years and am "deaf" by legal definition. (profound hearing loss, both ears, with only 30% speech discrimination) So here I am coming up on 59. It doesn't mean I don't have any intention of finding work (I DO!) But it will be nowhere near what I was making before we got married and he asked me to give up my job (and pension) to move up to Georgia.
  3. Yes, I have one. Supposedly a good one. But haven't heard much from her. This virus has more or less stalled the court system.
  4. Versailles All I can say is (channeling my inner George Takei) Oh My!
  5. As some of you know, DH and I are getting a divorce. It is taking a lot longer than it should due to the virus and courts being closed. I'm not upset about the divorce, the marriage really should have ended a long time ago. The setting: DH moved to Miami last July. (at the time he had said that he wanted me to move down once DD graduated.) In late October, he informed me he wanted a divorce. Oh, and in June of last year (or before) he started having an affair with an old schoolmate of ours - although I'm not supposed to know about that) The current: Our daughter is graduating from high school on July 25th. (they had postponed the ceremony due to the virus). She will even be speaking at the graduation. DH said that due to the virus that he couldn't come. (he is a doctor and Miami is being hit hard). Just found out that the week our daughter is graduating, he will not be in Miami, but in Savannah with his new girlfriend. Two weeks later is daughter's 18th birthday...again he will be on a trip with his new girlfriend. I am pretty much livid right now. (And, no...my daughter doesn't know any of this, nor am I going to tell her...it would really hurt her) I'm also feeling somewhat vindictive. I know that is wrong, but I feel like kicking him in the monetary nuts.
  6. I had thought of a general contractor. The actual house also needs a lot of work, but I am going to have to do it a bit at a time. If I could find a reasonably priced contractor, then I could test him on one project before I hire him for all projects.
  7. That is my second option. I want to see what the entire cost to do all the things I want to on the carport and if it is cost prohibitive, I could have it torn down and get one of those steel 2 car garages and put it at the back of the property. (but considering it is cinder block, it may cost more to tear down than to fix up.) The carport, as it is, was at one time an open carport with a room to the side of it. but over time, people have done (admittedly weird) things to it to sort of close it in except for the front. The side room and supports are made of cinder/concrete block so properly closing it up should not be too much of a deal. I'm not down there right now so I can't get a picture of it. I tried to google up something similar but I can't find one. but it is sort of mid century style.
  8. I have a detached carport. It really is a sorry little thing, but that is besides the point. The roof is seriously rotted and needs replaced. Whomever decided it needed to have a flat roof was an idiot. Again, that is beside the point. What I want to do is to rip the whole thing off and build an entirely new roof, rafters and all. One that will have something along the lines of a 6/12 pitch which will give me a little bit of storage space above. Now the question is...what type of professional would I call to do this? A friend said a roofer does this, but I thought they just dealt with the laying on and repairing the outer roof. So can my very knowledgeable CB friends help me out here and tell me who to call?
  9. No, just live in a rural area.
  10. Echo has Netflix, Angel has Hulu, I have Amazon streaming. There are a couple of more that I am interested in as well. (britbox and maybe that new one with Picard on it) The thing is, sometimes there is sucky slow internet. Is there a way to stream to a DVR at a slow hour when things aren't so busy (ie middle of the night), so that we can watch it the next day, or whenever? I'm trying to decide if I want to keep my Dish Network when I move back to Jax or just go the streaming route.
  11. OK, I'm not understanding something here. What does the Stimulus check (which comes from the government) have to do with the salary you earn from the company you work for? That is like saying that Mary (or Josh) gets $150 a month child support (or a has second source of income)....so the company wants to deduct that to help make payroll. No. just no. Apparently the company is owned by ImageNet Consulting. There is a follow up story: https://www.kxan.com/news/company-that-wanted-its-workers-stimulus-checks-apologizes-for-ill-advised-plan/

    I miss Tee

    I think there was some sort of disagreement over something stupid like the site template changing. Or at least...the two events coincided. Plus a lot of folks got into FB. I prefer CB personally. I don't like having to deal with those two forbidden subjects that get people banned here. Matter of fact, I'm thinking of setting up a cot here and not come out until next January.
  13. No, not confusing them, just showing that something can survive in the wild and infect you later than what you thought. I think the biggest thing they need to decide is "when" someone becomes contagious. For example, with the common cold and the flu, you are contagious 24 hours prior to symptoms emerging. As of yet (at least according to WHO) they have not determined when, exactly, a person becomes contagious. It is hypothesized that same 24 hours prior to symptom onset. BUT from what I have read it is most contagious when you are the sickest (again, according to WHO), whereas with the Flu, you are most contagious from the day before symptoms are present, and the first 4 days. (which is arguably when you would be the sickest). However, with the flu, you can be contagious for another 3 weeks after symptoms have stopped. I'm not sure about COVID-19.
  14. yup, they are very Sirius about it.
