During the darkest of my dark hours on Saturday

possibly as a gift from On High, we had 17 (!) fluffy little chicks hatch out to a pair of hens that we didn’t even know were on eggs. What a gift! I filmed the bigger batch of chicks, together with their mom, that next morning. It’s just 75 seconds of Extreme Cute for your Monday morning. If you turn up the speakers a little, you’ll be able to hear them chirping. Mark – these are a home-grown breed tracing back to a mutt mom who’s raised SEVEN batches of her own chicks, crossed with a very nice-tempered Buff Orpington rooster. Enjoy!

Was there a signed off, copy in your hand acceptance of the final walk through?

Do you have proof that you changed your power bill to a new address prior to notification that the AC froze up? If you’re not paying a power bill at the time the damage occurred, I don’t see how you would be liable.
I would pursue this in small claims court, if your deposit wasn’t returned to you when you returned the keys and signed a final walk-through acknowledgement. I don’t see how I can hold you responsible past the point of the lease termination.

daily living such as groceries, as well home and personal needs. Coupons are not a whole lot of good it seems, since most are for products that we don’t want or need. We looked at the extreme couponing, and that is a joke too since almost all grocery stores around here do not multiply coupons. At most, we can combine coupons with sales, and take advantage of sales. But even the sales are getting pretty weak. We have Walmart & Gshloans payday loans services who never puts anything on sale anymore, and they don’t seem to care to have the cheapest price (without credit check) in town anymore either. We have Albert son’s that now instead of putting meat on sale, they mark it way up and advertise buy two get one free type offers.

Fact is, most of what I know about saving money no longer really seems to work. Our grocery bill has continually gone up and up along with everything else. What is everyone else doing to save money on these things?
