    Harassment is a special word.

    Attempt at using roasted cocoa beans in the Keurig at work = epic fail and a huge mess.

    Anyway, I had put the already ground cocoa beans in my grinder and made them finer which I was doing to make them in my drip pot. Apparently this helps to keep the water from flowing through, causing the top to pop off the reusable k-cup and water and grounds to overflow. I will try again tomorrow, leaving them in the coarser grind they come in. Wish me luck.

    Got duped out of $31.95 by FreeCreditReport.com (to find out my score was only supposed to be $1, but one of the bureaus charges a lot more and *apparently* I agreed to that, though I never saw anything saying so). They'll refund me $17. Citizens Bank will file a claim when the charge completes, if I want, or I can call with FCR on the line to have them confirm their merchant ID info and talk about the charge or something to cancel it before it goes through. The process sounds frustrating and time consuming. Trying to decide if it's worth the hassle (to file the claim, don't have time to figure out the 3 way calling shit).

    Woke up to strange orange light this morning. Apparently the wind changed over night and blew the smoke from a fire north east of us into our valley. I had all the windows open to cool the house down. Fortunately I just bought a filter yesterday that fits on the back of a box fan; a friend of mine said that would help filter out smoke in the house. I hope it works because DS has a compromised respiratory system.

    The smoke from all the fires this year has been the suck! You may want to hang out a the library, mall or other indoor air conditioned venue to limit your exposure also.

    Couple of years ago we had to do that, even finally went out of town for a few days. It looks like the wind has changed direction and the air is clearing; which is a good thing because my car is in the shop so we can't even go to the library which is the only place in our small town with AC.

    If you don't need the actual numerical score and just want the credit report, you can get it from AnnualCreditReport.com for free. It's 3 different reporting agencies (major ones - Experian, Equifax and TransUnion), and you can get all 3 at once or (what I do) get one report every 4 months and just cycle through all 3. Then start over again after the 3rd one.

    Yeah. $180/mo would make me think twice too! It's only $90/month here and I they do classes 5 times a week (3 time slots per day on M, T, Th, F and one time on Sun)

    Worked better this time, but not as rich as I'd like it to be. I guess I'll have to make it at home and bring it in a thermos.
