Hope PoofGuy's root canal goes well. Amazing how the procedure can vary. First one was a nightmare, second one I was up and about 30 minutes later with no pain.



I don't, but TT does. Thinking about it for coffee. Might check into paper towels and toilet tissue. Buy that by the bale at Sam's.

Are you talking about the "subscribe and save" option? I don't use Amazon all that much, but I have seen mentioned fairly frequently on coupon blogs that for a lot of stuff you can sign up for the "subscriber" discount, and then cancel the subscription right after the order goes through but still keep the discounted price.

That's going away for non-prime members on Monday.

I have an AmazonMom account that gives me free prime shipping and subscribe and save through April. I subscribe for diapers and wipes and just added TP because it's as cheap as Costco and I don't have to drive anywhere. Plus I buy a little less at a time since I only go to Costco every couple months and I can have subscribe and save shipped monthly. I don't get the movies or books on my prime account, but it is cheaper than Netflix, I'm not sure if their video library is as large though.

My library does Kindle lending. It's super easy and free. We get onto our library website browse kindle books, can add to our read someday list or make an active request. Unfortunately, our library's service is immensely popular. There are no books without a wait list and you can't return the books early yet so each person gets the book for 3 weeks, then it goes to the next person in the list. It does mean you can estimate when you will get the book, but it also means you can go from want to read to request and expect to get it. Once it's your turn to borrow the book you get an email with an Amazon link and you download it just like any other book. Afterwards (especially if you don't finish) Amazon replaces the lent book with an ad for that book and a link to buy it. Not too annoying though.

Poor husband. Went to his dentist for a root canal this morning that his dentist thought he could do. Got in there and decided he needed a specialist. Has to go to someone else this afternoon. And the someone else isn't in our network. Bummer.

I order enough stuff from Amazon to make it well worthwhile to have Prime. I even order my Puff tissues by the case. Cheaper than in the stores. And coffee.



Not everything qualifies for prime. It has to be shipped by amazon. Outside venders still have shipping.

Okay, update on my Yahoo problems. It won't let me open any attachments, whether pdf or jpg or whatever. Is there a setting I accidentally tripped?

I'll go check my yahoo. I hardly use it, so it's all junk. I may have to send myself an attachment

Edit: hmmm.. I didn't have any trouble. Which browser are you using to open yahoo?

pooflady wrote:Okay, another question. I have Yahoo email. As of last night I can't open attachments. It does the window where it's checked for viruses, then when I click on "continue," it does some stuff at the bottom like it's going to open, but I never get the window to click "open." I can forward it to another email address and open them. Any ideas?

Is it your Norton that's checking for viruses? Could be a problem with Norton if so.

McAfee's checking for viruses and I get the window that there are no viruses. When I click "continue," which should bring up the "open" window, there's just some activity on the task bar and then it says "done" but no attachment. I can forward it to a different address (not Yahoo) and it works with no problem.

Clear out the temps like KdC mentioned (Internet Options)

Try FireFox.

Is it just that one file? Will it open other jpg files? It could be it's too large per Yahoo's requirements.

Cleared temp files and history. Tried FF. Thought I came up with something there because it said I had to load Adobe Flash something or other to see everything. So I did that. Still nothing. These are attachments in different emails, both pdf and jpg.

Morning. I was late to work (for me) although not technically late.

I decided I needed a nap after having been up for about 15 minutes. Fell asleep on the couch. oops
