Mar 20th 2012 6:51PM I had a similar situation when management tried to change the rules in a former home. When they brought out the new contracts I wrote on mine "all landscaping, pets and other improvements are deemed grandfathered in" (meaning they were there before the rules changed). Initialed it, kept copies and never had a peep out of them. If she signed the HOA's rules, she made herself subject to this, unless she'd had a clause or notes that "x" was not part of their new rules. You have to watch what you sign or agree to.

Mar 17th 2011 7:42PM If you listen to him speak and I have on Hannity, he has some very definite and well thought out plans. I'd certainly consider him over the weak field being put forth to run next year.
Mar 1st 2011 7:56PM Nonsense. I work in a one-woman-office. I answer phones, keep the books, act as the paralegal, keep up the website, design our advertising and anything else that comes along. People that can and want to produce do so. The rest are slugs.
Feb 16th 2011 6:58PM I fell last July and badly injured one leg, permanent damage and walked with a pronounced limp. One of nurses had Sketchers and loved them for being on his feet all day. I decided to try some this month, different brand (Champion) similar style. $30 at Payless. All that cushioning under the shoe is wonderful pain relief and I can walk almost normally again. It's like any shoe, if it doesn't work for you - don't wear it! Sue happy people ruin it for everybody.
Jan 24th 2011 2:12PM Common demonimators - ever alter a recipe? You better be able to convert the fractions to know what to measure. Cursive writing - I take notes all day as a legal secretary. I also keep the books which means adding up deposits both by hand and the computer, just to have checks and balances. Ever try to figure out what the missing piece of a problem was? That's algebra. How to fit that oversized cabinet in that space? Geometry. You may not even realize you use those basics but you do.
It seems to me that this is a deliberate further dumbing down of Americans. When we're all too stupid to do for ourselves who will have to tell us what to do? I'm not a conspiracy nut but this just seems a little too convenient along with the other skills our children are losing in school.
Jan 15th 2011 7:19PM The aluminum foil trick works with very hot water and salt too. I had a badly tarnished silver piece. It took two baths but it was amazing how clean it came out.
Jan 9th 2011 11:26AM Not the least bit funny. I turned on the show hoping with Carrey in it, it'd be funny, nope, the show went right for raunch. Whenever a program goes for sex and potty jokes, it's because there's no writing talent to hold it up. SNL just can't be what it was in the days of Belushi.
Dec 24th 2010 2:31PM Not true on the tax lien. IRS routinely files tax liens to 'protect their interest'. Right now they are being even more aggressive about it. We've had clients with liens filed only a few months after the tax becomes due. Even if you make installment arrangements or an Offer in Compromise, IRS will file a lien as long as there is a debt outstanding. Once paid, IRS will file a notice of release but it only offsets the original notice of lien. IRS does NOT remove a lien, it only falls off your report with age after 10 years. However, IRS can renew the lien as long as the debt remains.
Dec 9th 2010 8:32PM The only dog at fault (and owners of it) is the poodle. Brandie was on a leash. In my neighborhood there are two poodles that are never ever leashed. They aggressively threaten any other dog out for a walk. If you don't control your dog you have no right to complain when something bad happens.
