Re: Unauthorized Subscriptions

Update on Amazon Music Unlimited unauthorized membership As of yesterday, the amount of the authorized purchase has been credited to my bank account, however, I'm not sure it was Amazon's doing, or my bank, since I registered a dispute on the charge. Nevertheless, the situation is resolved. Now, I ...

Unauthorized Subscriptions

Twice in the past, I've noticed mysterious charges on my bank account stemming from Amazon taking the liberty to "subscribe" me to one of their services. Both of those incidents were regarding "Prime" membership. Neither time did I request, let alone authorize, this. The only reason I caught it, was...

Class-action Settlement!

Lo and behold, I received a check last week for $9.04 as a settlement for a class-action lawsuit against Google Adsense for the very reason I started-up this forum nearly 10 years ago. The settlement amount is not even a small fraction of what was taken from me over these years (especially if you wa...

Direct Line to Colonel John Dandridge Jr.

I was recently notified by familysearch.org, the genealogy site of the Mormons, the largest genealogical resource in the world, that I am a direct descendant of Col. John Dandridge Jr. (1700 to 1756), the father of Martha Dandridge (brother of my ancestor Bartholomew) and wife of President George Wa...

Status of Kim & Ethan case as of the start of this forum

Around late-summer of 2013, I was requested to visit Detective Nathan Sloan of the Muncie Police Department at his office in the city building. As I waited in the lobby after reporting into the Officer at the front desk, I felt awkward because the Officer attending the desk was Officer Winters, the ...

Re: Day 19 without alcohol - my take

Day 33 - in the books! Still feeling somewhat "spacey" but getting better day by day. Had a thorough physical check-up last week with blood tests and all, the results showed normal liver function (Thank God). Blood pressure, cholestrol, and triglycerides were a little high, but that's to be expected...

Re: Day 19 without alcohol - my take

On day 27, I had a terrible headache. With 3 tallboys in the fridge, I decided to take a "sip" off one of them. One sip alleviated the headache, but within a hour or two, I'd knocked off all 3 tallboys. I then went to work on the 2 bottles of wine that I'd had put away for my "collection" and when t...

Newsflash! Nobody Gives a Darn!

I am of the tail end of the baby-boomers (actually considered baby-boomers II or generation Jones) but have yet to adjust to generation xers, gen-y, or let alone, this new breed of, whatever it is, millennials? They don't seem to give a crap about anything, they're lazy, rude, uneducated, and all th...
