hit your neighbor where he lives - in the wallet - sm

In Reply to: Dog pet peeve, no leashes on dogs sm - mlstoo

check out your homeowners insurance about filing a claim (especially if you have medical expenses or can't work because of the attack) - they can find out who your neighbor's insurance is and believe me his rates will go through the roof! Our dog got attacked too (their dog was just being "friendly") with vet bills, etc. We have a leash law so I filed a complaint with Animal Control and they got a fine...if it happens again the file escalates. Good luck!

You're right, you could be my neighbor. My neighbor is flaky, too.
What's wonderful. Perhaps you should open up your wallet a bit wider and pay more then! HA!

I go, I chomp down on the free food, and I leave my wallet at home! (nm)

I know someone who lives (sm)
in the same neighborhood in Atlanta that Bobby and Whitney live in...they said that Whitney tried to take out a restraining order on a little girl for trying to sell her some Girl Scout cookies! It's really sad to see how far down she has gone! She used to be so beautiful and talented, now she's just a train wreck! I guess that's one reason to be glad I'm poor! Can't afford to screw myself up THAT bad! Good day, all!
Obviously these 2 have no lives
They obviously have no personal life and come here to get their jollies.  They are immature and pathetic.  No wonder they like Medquist - same mentality.
That's because most of our lives are about

My dh lives for this show!!...sm
Coffee thing was very cool.  Had cylinder type holder for separate filters.  He explained it like a gun cylinder that holds individual bullets.  Anyway, he put filters in each separate cylinder and could make individual cups of coffee, soup, tea, etc. by rotating to the right cylinder and adding water. 
Yes, DH's family lives there. I would think this would be ... SM
a very good area to move to.  It is very rapidly growing, however, so if you are not into crowds, you might think about that.  They actually live in Oakwood which is just outside of Gainsville.  Hall County is supposed to have a very good school system.  Lots of shopping in the area, and I think they're building subdivisions like crazy.  It's also close enough to the north Georgia mountains that weekend getaways would be easy - or you could drive into Atlanta for special attractions.  They have recently built the Gwinnett Arena near there that has a lot of concerts, sporting events, etc., so a drive into Atlanta is not always necessary for this kind of thing.  All in all, a very nice area.
E-Bay and Days of Our Lives.
Yes, Days of our Lives for sure! I really
don't watch much TV, but this has been something I have followed my entire life (we both just turned 40, LOL). My granny used to watch (her "stories" she called them) and I was granny's little girl :-)

I am SOOOOOO happy to see Patch and Kayla back on the show! Now if they would just get this Bo and Hope thing straightened out. Oh wouldn't it be nice to have Kate, Billie and Chelsea miraculously disappear from Salem!?!?!?!?! Hey, a girl can wish can't she. LOL!!!!
Just how many lives do YOUR patients have?

Apparently mine have more than one because I have one dictator who likes to use the following phrase:  Patient was told that he might have death and loss of current life. 

Oh please! Now its all about the $$ again. He lives in France for several reasons,
the obvious of which is his wife wants to stay in her homeland, and, secondly, he has said that the Parisians treat him like a regular guy - we all know that celebs living in the USA are stalked and their lives are chaotic trying to avoid stalkers, paparazzi, etc. He feels his children are safe there, and they are his #1 priority.  Even a lesser known actor like Gary Oldman, who has NEVER stated anything politically incorrect, had to leave the LA area in the USA because some nut case "fan" keeps threatening to kill his 2 little boys. While Gary Oldman has been quoted as saying he LOVES living in the USA compared to Britain, he's had to return to Europe because the climate for celebreties is not as crazy as it is in the USA.  Its INSANE.  They do live some of the year in the USA by his family, but he has chosen not to disclose the location or times of year. He is like one of the BIGGEST stars in the world right now - and still nuts hate him. Hmm....I saw BOTH interviews, and read the original "USA hatred" article, and he never said that. While eccentric, the man is brilliant - do you think he'd be stupid enough to say he hated the USA?  He NEVER said it, but its just the perfect example of how media manipulates things, and how some of us are naieve enough to believe it.  Boycott him all you want - its your loss, not his!
lori who? wonder what island SHE lives on - sorry for being cat-ee

not surprised  guess I should really go read the story but if no details

of this person first I wonder if she really exists and if so and if they

can't brag on her situation, why can't they?

it should have been gwendolyn gopp from Op, Alabama who has worked for MQ

for 5 years or something like that.  show a picture, show us her co-workers, show


re: a canadian MT who lives next to MAINE
I have a MT company from portland, Maine who w ants me to work for them as an IC. They offered me 7 cents per line american. WHat a freakin joke!!

I wont work for under 12 cents per line and I have been out of it for awhile (6 years!!).

See ya!!
Anyone here a Days Of Our Lives watcher?
I am soooooo frustrated at the Bo and Hope situation.  Anyone care to express their opinion!
How many MTs feel like they have control of their lives?
If you have a family and a million things to do everyday on top of your job, how do YOU keep it all together?  What works for you or what has worked for you in years past?
My best girlfriend from childhood lives sm
in Colorado Springs and absolutely loves it! She is a school principal out there. She has several friends working at home as MTs and are doing well. I know nothing about where or what though. I live in NC and she and I are both originally from Michigan.
My housekeeper lives off Bankhead
so I definitely know what it is called and hear it all the time, just trying to be a little politically correct here. She is one who says skrimp (for shrimp) and strap cake for cake made from scratch.

We all like different things in our lives, we small talk them here

just as we would do around the coffee pot in the office before work or on breaks.  It's too bad the someone who doesn't want to talk about a certain subject can't just walk away....like they would in the office, I'm sure. 

 NOW go and enjoy your night.  Steak and veggies for dinner here. 

The patient lives with her parents, who are both alive and well.
I would hope they'd be alive. 
Hope she lives in the north cuz if she gets in the sun and walks
across a highway it will create a grease slick from all that lard rendering. 
My DD has to ask me for money, still lives with me. I moved less than a mile SM
from her college (since I work at home) for her sake, the things we do for our kids.
Hey, my daddy used to live in PP, now lives in Plantation.
I tape Days of Our Lives and can watch
it in no time. Between fast forwarding through commercials and fast forwarding through scenes where they are looking back at previous scenes I think I can watch an hour long show in about 20 minutes. LOL.

I like some of the reality shows like The Apprentice and Survivor. Oh and I LOVE The Amazing Race. Don't have much time for them though :-(
Even with taping.
Okay, lets just throw aside the fact he lives
So whatever state she lives in, lets stick together on this
I have a neighbor who is always... sm

pestering me to "teach her to do what I do".  She stopped over one time while I was working and said it again... This time I stacked every one of my reference books up, handed them to her and told her "Go home and memorize these.  Then we'll talk about it".  Needless to say she hasn't mentioned it since.  


They were after the other neighbor.
They came over and asked if we had seen anyone at the neighbor's house.  Uh, no, I don't watch my neighbors all day long.
My neighbor has one. I would
like to get one, but cannot afford it right now.  He paid around $10,000.  That includes installation I think.  He uses it to heat his home and has radiant floor heat and uses that to heat the water pipes in his flooring.  It is way cool. It looks like a metal shed almost outside his house.  He is saving lots of money, but it does make smoke, so you would have to be in an area that is zoned for it.
My neighbor had one (sm)
and they are VERY high energy. They have a tendency to experience separation anxiety also. I can tell you they are not like most big dogs, in that they have a strong personality of their own and you have to dedicate a lot of time to training them.
My neighbor has/had PKD- he is 51 now - sm
He has had it for years, since he was about 35 or so. He has always been a vegatarian and the doctors said that helped him stay healthy as long as he did. He did start to eat meat and eggs some though as he got worse for the protein though. He was doing quite well until about 18 months ago when he started getting worse. He ended up have right and left radical nephrectomies, and lived on peritoneal dialysis at home and used a cycler at night. He was due to have a transplant about 2 weeks or so after the double nephrectomy but unfortunately at the last minute the donor was deemed unacceptable after they looked at her kidneys via a CT (to figure out which one to take) and found issues with hers with blood vessels and the fact that her kidneys were not functioning at 100% capacity (about 60% between the 2 of them), so that nixed the transplant. Luckily he did very well on dialysis (he has some other issues going on as well such as permanent vertigo due to the former hospital he was going to screwed up and have him the wrong antibiotics when the PD access got infected--ones you do not give a patient with no kidneys and he ended up with antibiotic poisoning which unfortunately resulted in permanent damage). So he ended up on the transplant list. Fortunately for him a young blood relative with no sign of PKD stepped forward and donated a kidney in January. He has done great and the donor has done quite well too. He still cannot drive or work due to the veritgo but is trying to get better with that with some PT though I don't think it will ever go away. I am "on-call" if he ever needs anything since I am usually home and his wife works about 35 minutes away. I don't see them too often but I know he is well as his wife and I email on a regular basis. Obviously everyone is different, but I do a lot of kidney transplant reports and for the most part they go very well. I have only done about 10 or so due to PKD though, most kidney failures are due to other issues from what I can tell from my experience anyways. All I can say it read up, ask plenty of questions and don't be shy about asking friends and relatives about a transplant when/if it comes to that. The list can take anywhere from 2-5 years or longer and they won't list you until you need it basically. You have to meet the parameters of need first. I hope it all works out for you though.
Use my neighbor's. sm
When I go on vacation there is a lawyer who lives a few houses away. He has Netscape wirless tower and I have a Linksys on my laptop. I have all the latest virus and Spyware as does he. He gives me permission to use his connection as the house where I stay does not have internet. I can work off his as though it is my own. He also uses his laptop in the parking lot of Starbucks, he states, when he is on a case away from his main tower. I don't know, just see if it works for you as far as confidentiality is concerned. I don't think anything is compromised. At first I was very worried but a nephew who is tech savvy said it was safe. Just my humble opinion. Not sure. I don't use it for work, don't work on vacation but sure do appreciate using the net, I am addicted and can't leave home without my laptop!
Women like you are the main ones who have men leading double lives (sm)
or running around with your best friend, and you are the last one to know it. Keep your patronizing attitude. If you are in a relationship where you THINK THINK THINK you can trust your man, then that's wonderful and more power to you. But I hope you aren't headed for a fall.
But really. To make this work, don't you have to intrude upon people's lives and SM

make a horrible pest of yourself? Honestly? My riding instructor, who is one of the dearest friends I've ever had, gets into these schemes. His latest was Tahitian Noni juice.

He had some remarkable results with it on a horse that was just a juvenile delinquent - she reared in crossties, acted up at shows when she wasn't in the arena, she was just a PMSing witch.

So I was impressed. I went to a meeting with him. Come to find out, they don't actually want you to buy the Noni juice - they want you to recruit other people to recruit other people. Biggest mess of flim-flam I've ever seen.


Have you ever heard of Richard Petty? He lives in Level
Cross, which is a hop, skip, and a jump from GSO. 
What to do about a neighbor's yapping dog?

This thing is driving me CRAZY.  Yes I know that there are times during the day that a dog is not considered "disturbing the peace," but these people moved in about a year ago and they now have a Yorkie that they leave outside ALL DAY on a 6 foot leash and all that thing does is "yap, yap, yap, yap, yap!"  CONSTANTLY. . . ALL DAY LONG until they finally bring the poor thing in for the night.

We tried to welcome the couple to the neighborhood, but they don't assoiciate with anybody.  When anyone comes near their property, they run inside and lock the doors, leaving the "yapper" outside to "yap" even louder if anyone is within 20  feet from their property.

I've actually resorted to yelling out the window, SOMEBODY MAKE THE DOG STOP!  PLEASE!!!!"

We have a dog, but I wouldn't even get one until we had fenced in the entire back yard and then trained him from a puppy not to bark.  Of course our dog will bark if somebody knocks on thedoor, which is a good thing,  but I shake a coffee can with some pennies in it (Hint from Heloise) and he stops.

I feel bad for the poor Yorkie who never gets walked or paid attention to as he sits all day "yapping" on his 6 foot chain. But I don't want to cause any discord in the neighborhood either. 

What to do?

Lucky neighbor....
My ex-neighbor also experienced this and was lucky enough to live (very high mortality rate).   She delivered her baby OK but then all her problems began.  She swelled up like a balloon and had an emergency hysterectomy (thinking she had internal bleeding) before being airlifted to a bigger hospital.  After over six months in the hospital and rehab, she is fine with no brain damage, but she suffers from bilateral foot drop and sometimes wears braces.  She is one very lucky lady!!! 
I had a neighbor like this once but after a frank
She had a boyfriend and they were the have a fight and make up kind. One night they had a particularly nasty argument and I didn't know who was going to win the _ugly word_ you, no _ugly word_ you argument. She kicked him out. We lived in NJ and he lived in Brooklyn and it was after public transportation had stopped running so he was looking at a $100 cab fare home.

The next day I made a point of running into her and being curiously interested in the bus schedules to Brooklyn and cab fares and when she asked why I was asking, I told her I was concerned for her boyfriend after what had happened the night before, using my best "bless your heart" face and telling her if she ever needed someone to talk to, just knock on my door.

She avoided me like the plague after that and they started meeting at his house


noisy neighbor
I say get a mop, cover it with material and rap on the ceiling when SHE is trying to sleep. When I have noisey cotranscriptionists at work, I take noisemaking machine that makes sounds like the ocean waves. I focus on it between the words and that helps a little. When my Co MTs were really noisy I actually used to listen to music in my left ear and dictation in my right....takes a little practice...but it CAN be done. That eliminates background noise altogether.
howdy neighbor! nm
Hi, neighbor....I'm in Reading, PA.
Look in your own backyard first before your neighbor's...

I am Canadian and take offence to you blaming the whole country...are there not innocent PEOPLE dying at the hands of Americans in Afghanistan? You want to fight a cause don't do it here on this board, that's not what it was meant for.  Innocent people, woman, children and soldiers and dying at the hands of your government....take up that issue. PLEASE!  I'm sure there are numerous other NON-TRANSCRIPTION boards dedictated to it!

Neighbor trouble
I agree with ignoring her. She is seeking sympathy and attention.
They have doctors that can help her and unless she is seeking help herself, she will just drag you down with her.
Talking with friends does not solve this problem, but a psychiatrist/psychologist might be able to help her, along with medication.
Look at what she is doing already, trying to pit you and the other neighbor against each other out of jealousy. She is smarter than you think girl!!!! enough said
Howdy neighbor!
Same here, August 14th, in Gwinnett County.
I just found out that my neighbor
with a BB gun when they come on his property.  I live on a small farm and everybody has acreage.  My cats go crazy when I lock them up in the house.  Don't know what to do.
Hey neighbor! Arkadelphia here!

Neighbor Noise
Any chance of selling your place and getting a little place in the country? We live far out and have high speed internet and only critter noise to deal with. Your hours are tough ones. Don't you hate those friends who call when they know you need to be sleeping and say, "I hope I didn't awaken you."
