I tried to go to sleep early-ish last night but then was a a rather long burst of fireworks at 12:30 AM. It seems that today Easter and "Greekster" coincide. Spoke to My Kid just now; it was the Greek Orthodox church in her neighborhood, a mile away, celebrating at a midnight service.
I said if it was that loud here, it must have been pretty bad at her house, 2 streets from the church. Susannah said "the cats were...startled." - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Often the 2 Easters are on different dates and we have to remember that parking in her neighborhood will be tricky on Orthodox Easter. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
RT @MJMcKean: Happy @RecordStoreDay everybody. "In '78, those born in '45 turned 33 1/3". I'm quoting...whom? Anyone?

Please forgive my joy. Our air conditioner is not working and we cannot get it serviced until May 2nd. Cold works for me right now. Hellish hot in this house without air. - Janet

It's a perfect day to hang out laundry - sunny and breezy. It's also the day the roofer said he might come to do the hot tar roofing update. So far, no roofer and no laundry.
I just know if I fill the yard with clean wash the roofer will show up with buckets of goo. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Well he came at 4:00. I don't mind, because he's an old friend by now (his father did the work before him) and he worked until 6:30. But I wish he hadn't come the same month I have to pay income taxes! - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

Last month I paid off my "big" credit card. Today I paid off my Amazon card, and thanks to the Kindle credits, I won't be paying for this month's books, so I AM DEBT-FREE AT LAST!!
That's awesome - Shevonne
At least until the next big expense. I did the "snowball" thing. I paid off my car just when I retired, and used the erstwhile car payment to pay down my credit card. I'm lucky that I already own my house and now my car. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Congratulations!!! Whatta a huge thing to accomplish. - Lnorigb
It wasn't easy. I started by not using the oddball store and gas cards I had. Paid them off in turn and was left with one card with the biggest credit limit, which really piled up what with a new furnace among other things. Got an Amazon card for online expenses. Now I just have monthly expenses on the online card, plus All Those Books. Still have the "big" card but I hope to be able to pay back anything I use that for in the future. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
you are an inspiration! kudos! - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
thats great.. being debt free" - Peter Dawson
m9m: I assume the One Big Card pays 1% (or 1.5%) cash back? If not, get one that does...at this point you should have a great credit rating. Yes, being wholly debt free is wonderful. - Walt Crawford

Happy to lose the "I'm __ Old" contest! Today at the pharmacy I gave my name and DOB 9/1/45. Got my Rx and the pharmacist asked me who it was for. I said "me" and he was shocked. He had a special offer for folks over 65 and he wanted me to give it to my "older relative."

And of course there's Plenty of parking on the street. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I'm my street had cobblestones and streetcars still ran on it old. Then it was paved. And then they stripped all the asphalt last year and repaved it. I'm older than asphalt.
