The Do Not Call List

Last night I heard the answering machine beeping.  I checked it and it was some law firm talking about a “law suit”.  The number they gave me I looked up and it was one of those IRS scam numbers.  I called the number on the ID and knew it was a scam and they wanted my name.  I told them I would contact the law if they call me again.  This is about the third or 4th time I have gotten these calls.

So my question is what is the point of having the FEDERAL “Do not call list”? When these kinds of scams continue?  I got a couple of the “Fireman’s and Policeman’s Association” calls last month and I had just put my numbers on the lists.

I did get a message from Livia she was able to arrange her schedule for today to come and clean the house after 12:30. I was grateful.  I left her money and access to the house.  She won’t have to make my bed since I changed the sheets last night.  I didn’t do the guest room yet but it wouldn’t surprise me if she does it before I get home.

Work has been good.  The mail volume very small so I worked on the refunds for most of the day.  We have one more day until the rebranding begins.  We found out the company that was helping with the rebranding went under so the stationary that we were expecting won’t be here for another couple of weeks so we have to use up the stuff we do have.  I actually still have more e training to do.  If I get lots done today I may spend the afternoon working on the training sessions.

We got word yesterday and late last week the NLRB has ruled that Grad students can and will be recognized as unions where ever they are.  Local 33 is filing certification papers with the NLRB to be certified so they can vote on unionizing.

I received message that the LH alumni bulletin will be coming out soon.  I don’t remember if its digital for me or hard copy.  It will be cool either way.  I still have to remember to send Miss S her birthday card.  It was requested that we all send one by a deadline and so she could get them all.

Apparently I need to catch up on some Endicott alumni emails.  I missed a whole bunch of stuff including a news letter, activities and invites (not that I can easily attend them).  I will update once I go through them.

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

REally Busy

I am so sorry I haven’t finished the weekend entries.  I just was too tired and Monday was busy.  I know I have my Florida adventures to write up but again.  Not enough time or energy lately.  
I am looking forward to next weekend as I am meeting up with Siduri and we are going to spend the day in the city and visit Peabody museum and have lunch.  On sunday is baby Giada’s Christening and I am really looking forward to that.  I haven’t met Giada yet but from the pictures her parents and grandparents post she is beautiful.
WE had some late night rain last night and early morning rain today.  We may have more as the week progresses but that’s okay.  Meteorologist Geoff Fox began his second week at his summer Gig at Channel 8 this week.  His first week went well even with some first time hiccups with the technology.  He is having a blast along with his colleagues and fans.
I received a letter from my pen pal Debi in Tampa and I did manage to read the whole letter in one sitting.  She is kee…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
