  1. I grew up in Mass. Demoulas Market Basket is a staple of New England life. We used to just call it Demoulas or Market Basket. There are plenty of grocery stores, but people LOVE MB up there. I miss MB here. The stores were always nice. No, not quite as shiny and sleek as Hannaford's or Shaw's or Stop & Shop, but stable, clean, always well stocked on sale items, employees always helpful etc. I have a lot of friends who have worked for MB while in HS or college, some made careers. This is a really nice write up of why the feud is becoming so personal to customers and employees http://thoughtcatalog.com/abby-rosmarin/2014/08/why-one-local-grocery-stores-revolt-is-exactly-what-america-needs-right-now/
  2. My favorite isn't even an "ice cream" it's a couple frozen bananas pureed in the food processor. It's awesome. I've found fruit added to it is blah, but a little chocolate protein powder is great, so I'd imagine cocoa powder or the like would be good too. I add PB2 or All Natural Peanut Butter's Dark chocolate dreams to it, but those are out if you are avoiding nuts/allergens. But just the bananas? Amazing. Other than that, I've only been a homemade ice cream failure.
  3. You usually have to pay a penalty if you don't take out Part B when you're supposed to, then try to later. Part B is what pays for the Dr's office visits and everything else like XRays, lab tests, etc. Part A is hospitalization only. You can look into some of the Medicare Advantage plans available in your area and see if those would be more beneficial to you. Many of them eliminate the 20% coinsurance and deductible in favor of a set amount like an HMO/PPO plan. You usually have to pay your Part A premium still, but some reduce your Part B amount, or eliminate it completely. Either way, it may end up saving you money. Many offer RX, Vision and Dental benefits too. You can find plans here https://www.medicare.gov/find-a-plan/questions/home.aspx And every provider you see will want a copy of the actual card.
  4. GREAT update! Hope things continue on a positive path for you all
  5. That's great to hear. I hope this is the end of all the drama for you all.
  6. I've never had a vanilla chai cupcake. Can you mail me one?
  7. Call the financial department, apply for charity care. Also apply for state Medicaid. Aren't you also disabled? You should look into applying for SSI/SSDi and Medicare
  8. I will get you my pretties........
  9. We are both eligible for upgrades w/ Sprint and were planning on the S3... let us pray my phone will make it until November!
  10. PSA:Make sure you have a working Carbon Monoxide (CO)detector. With a bit of fall chill in the air, we decided to pop on the fireplace (propane) to take the edge off. It ran for less than one hour. About 15 minutes after turning it off and putting the girls to bed, the upstairs CO detector went off. We are very lucky that we have a CO detector in our basement and one up in our sleeping area monitored by ADT as well as a battery operated one upstairs. Fire department was called, windows were all opened. The fire department arrived and the CO level in the house was still considered to be at a very dangerous level. The source was found to be our ventless gas fireplace. Bloodwork confirmed carbon monoxide poisoning for all of us and we were put on 100% oxygen for over 2 hours. We all began to show symptoms with less than 2 hours of exposure, I can only imagine what would have happened if we had repeated or longer exposure. I cringe when I think of what the outcome could have been without the CO detectors. Carbon Monoxide is odorless, tasteless, colorless. You will not smell it, feel it, taste it, hear it. Just because your heating systems worked fine last winter or even were serviced over the summer doesn't meant you can't be exposed to CO. A detector is less than $20 and will save your life. Buy one, test it when recommended and call 911 if it goes off. We are very lucky and very grateful that we are alive and whole today. http://www.cdc.gov/co/faqs.htm
  11. I started watching because I'm Bringing Blogging Back is recapping it. I am afraid to admit this, but I actually enjoyed their show. And yes, I know there is obviously something fundamentally wrong with me for that
