  1. Go with the data cap plan and see how it goes. I'm guessing with that many hours of TV per day, you'll go over and want the unlimited, but it doesn't hurt you to give it a shot at the lower price.
  2. https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-foam-mattresses-you-can-buy-online/ is worth reading.
  3. It's not the same type of food as Chipotle - Taco Bell is the pinnacle of the food genre "Tacobell", but the nadir of the food genre "Mexican". When I want Mexican food, I go to the local place (Taqueria Azteca). When I want Tacobell food, I get Taco Bell. That's pretty rare if my son isn't with me.
  4. Huh. The angriest I got was at a friend who treated the staff like garbage. My response was to never see that friend again.
  5. A coworker adopted a daughter with problems long ago. It's been a really rough ride the whole way, running away from home, I think some suicide attempts, outbursts, attacks... early on, it was obvious that she was bipolar, but apparently there's something really weird about diagnosing children with bipolar disorder, and children don't really meet the description... so to get proper treatment, she had to wait until she was a certain age or exhibited some extra symptoms. Goofy stuff. Anyway, she was a carnie for a while, now is back at home and coworker is raising his grandkids. He's a saint for what he's done, but I know I couldn't have done it. Good luck sorting this all out, MikeIke.
  6. Sandwich and fries, that's about it. These aren't the free treats for points - I use the app to order, pick up my food, then the app asks me how my experience was. Answer a couple of questions, and it gives a free treat. The survey pops up 1/2 or 1/3 of the time for me.
  7. I order using the app, and it feels like I get something free about every 2 trips.
  8. My brother lost two dogs over the years to pool drownings... good to see that one work out so well.
  9. I'm a week behind, but the waterslide episode was excellent.
  10. Jabra Move. Wife has the higher model and loves them, I have the Move set at work for our phone system... they're great and inexpensive. https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-bluetooth-headphones/ https://smile.amazon.com/Jabra-Move-Wireless-Stereo-Headset/dp/B00MR96TFW?tag=thewire06-20&linkCode=xm2&ascsubtag=edtest&sa-no-redirect=1 $60
  11. Same thing for me, but I think I only made it about 20 seconds.
  12. They have to keep bad people from scamming them as much as possible. Buy covers. Smash them. Take picture, have them refund money. Buy another set, send picture of the smashed set from a different angle, have them refund money. At that point, you have paid for 1 set, have 1 set, and have a refund for 1 set. It's like the NHL point system...
  13. Relevant article here: https://thewirecutter.com/blog/speed-queen-washer/ It's from a reviewer looking in to the reasons Speed Queens have such rabid backing despite being rough on clothes, using more water, and costing more in the long run despite lasting forever (due to inefficient running). It also says that the 2018 redesign sucks for everyone - Speed Queen fans hate it, and so do reviewers. https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/the-best-washer-and-dryer/ is a good place to start IMO - I've had great success with Wirecutter recommendations.
