On The Table Today:
The formerly very impressive, massive Viking refrigerator is now, we believe, on its last legs.
It freezes things in the fridge section, leaks in the freezer section, needs a new plastic seal ($350), does not stay cold and has been recalled three times for a safety issue. Viking offered to send us a new one for about half price (they replaced it once already). We let that offer expire and are now reconsidering. Our kitchen is built around the size of it which means we cannot (visually) downsize to a "normal" unit (ours is a "professional" size). I am not whining, I am thinking.
Turns out the problems with the fridge are covered under warranty. Not that I believe the customer service rep. So no new fridge!
Because I had cigarettes (six years ago) before my life insurance exam, my premium is higher than it should be. Presently, I tend to have a pack of cigarettes over three days time whilst visiting Chicago, twice a year. Our insurance salesman does not return our phone calls which seems somewhat fair as we have never taken his suggestions when he tries to up-sell us on insurance but which is aggravating me no end.
Yes. No. Thank you.
Can we unplug our cable television? We each have a Blu-ray player which puts the internet on our televisions and our cable bill is expensive. Would we be fine if we only watched things available through Hulu and Netflix and the internet?
SO now we've spent another day analyzing that situation and still have not decided.
What happened to Youngest's phone? I don't think he mishandles it and yet the speaker is shot and the headphone jack no longer functions. It's a year old.
The guys at the (money laundering) cell phone store totally worked out the situation with Youngest's phone and he'll have a new one by the end of the week, free of charge.
Also On The Table: those pears with the blue cheese and honey. Impeccable. Perfect.
I'm off to the phone store with Youngest.
