1. Hey y'all,

    Just as a quick reminder, the forum is not a place to discuss hot topics like religion & politics & all those things that make people cranky. With that said, in light of how much news is coming directly from politicians and the fact a lot of folks come here as their daily watercooler I want to note sharing news/information is totally understandable/welcome (as long as it's not chem trail conspiracy theories or homoerotic frogs).

    However, please leave the commentary/opinion out of it. There is no room in my massive stockpile of hand sanitizer for hot takes.

    Love you all dearly, wash your hands before touching the daily thread, and consider this your "how we're keeping you safe" e-mail from TV. Thanks.

    Rejected 1 HIT out of 17 and blocked me. I think the rejection was a mistake, since in the rejection comments, she provided a broken URL that was supposedly the correct one. She hasn't yet responded to my email.

    If she eats snakes she has a job to do.

    I've had no problems at all with the new system. I like that it's all automatic and I don't have to do all the steps to get it to the bank. I also like the bigger chucks of money that show up in my bank account.

    I just have to remember to put it in my checkbook. I am not one who just relies on a balance to know how much money I have as I have automatic deductions I have to plan for, I schedule payments 2-3 weeks in advance, send stuff to savings, etc. I need to know what is available for me to spend after all that is done not just that I have $500 in there today so I'm golden! (I could have $350 coming out tomorrow in automatic debits).

    (I can't tell you how many of my tenants bounce payments because, "My husband got the balance at the ATM and saw we had $900 in the account so he took out $200 not knowing I wrote you a rent check for $850 that hadn't cleared yet.")

    That's my only issue and it's not a big one. I just try and grab the checkbook once a week and write it in there. Or add it in when I'm paying bills.

    That's ok. I have three freeloaders that meow, shed, poop in a box, sleep and scratch my furniture.

    But they are all pretty.

    Oh, they'll sometimes catch a rodent. Sometimes. Rarely. Just enough to show me they can actually do something more than sleep 18 hours per day.

    I'm a super freak about my checkbook. Everything is entered immediately and I'm always balanced to the penny. My first "real" job was as a teller at a bank and it taught me a lot of good habits.

    I balance mine to the penny, too!

    (full disclosure: I might only do this twice per year, but it's balanced to the penny those two times! I also keep an extra $200 in there that is not reflected in my checkbook balance just in case I screw something up so nothing bounces, since I got out of the habit of balancing monthly when Kiddo's life took off and my free time went away (full disclosure again: I decided I liked crocheting more))

    But I am a freak about it. I keep a piece of paper in my checkbook telling me exactly what money is coming in over the next two weeks, what bills are paid against it, and what's left over so I can more easily plan. I get paid every two weeks so that's why it's a two week list.

    I read somewhere that cats bring us "gifts" because they think we can't hunt for ourselves; they're trying to feed us! Also, that a cat will only actually kill a mouse (or whatever) if it learned it directly from its mother. That's why some cats do that kind of stuff and others just bat at mice and birds but don't ever kill.

    My dog used to lick rodents to death. It was kind of gross. Not sure what that was about.

    Our cats never got much of a chance at them as the dog was a bad Grinch boss about that. They'd catch them and then the dog would take over.
