My Teresa

 

Teresa B. True was born on October 7, 1942 and passed away on November 10, 2006.

I choose to remember her birthday, the beginning of her 64 years — 441/2 years as my wife.

“Just Pay Additional Handling Charges – – – “

How gullible does the advertising world (yes, I was part of that world earlier in my life – now I am at the gullible age) think we educated citizens are?  They feel they can use trickery to make a sale or fleece us out of what little money we have left. (They run their ad then give you their phone number four (4) times just in case us old folks don’t write fast enough the first time).

My name is Linda and I’m 70 years old – can you believe it” (well, yes).


Insurance Companies – Legalized Rip-off?

You have insurance don’t you?  Of COURSE you do! You’d better, if you have/drive a car, have a mortgage, etc.

Insurance is one of those things that belongs in the “good/bad” category – good when you need it but not if you have to pay for 50-60 years without a claim.

Computer Awareness – Part 2

Continuing on the theme of “there’s nothing free out there”, let’s look again at your family desktop PC or laptop or other version of computer that you might have.

Recently there have been a plethora of TV ads that show the guy, angered by “viruses” on his PC and starting to go to the store for help. Then the wife (?) suddenly appears with the revelation that you can have a certain software program scan and repair your computer, for free. “Wow, honey”!

While it is true that you can go to their WEB site and, yes, there is a “button” where you can get a FREE scan (emphasis on the word “scan”) of your PC that will reveal everything that is wrong with that device, it leaves you with less than complete information.
