Busy day today...
Ordered what we hope will increase our income a little.
Garrett Ace 350 Metal Detector
with Option 2 which meant I could get another metal detector for a low price. So I got Bounty Hunter Gold Digger Metal Detector
. I will use the "gold Digger" one and David gets the Garrett. Because I signed up to their website first, I got a $10 off "coupon" via the e-mail. So I got both detectors for $377.07. Did I just waste $377? I really don't know. We are not interested in relics or antiques. We are interested in lost jewelry and coins. Coins will be turned into Coinstar at the end of the year. The people in Roswell wear a lot of gold jewelry. This will also get us outside and David some exercise. I will let you know how this works out (or how it doesn't).
Something to remember... These places that buy the gold & silver off of you, they pay CASH. They do not turn it into the IRS because it is classified as "pre-owned" jewelry. So you are responsible for paying income taxes on it.
I bought a few more plants to add to my container garden. I've lost three strawberry plants (they got too cold next to the front windshield) so I am down to seven. Not a problem. I bought two more of the 24" window boxes at WalMart. I planted flat parsley, sage, "boxwood" basil (a tiny leafed compact plant) and chives (seed) in one planter. This is my herb collection for snipping. Fresh herbs are horrible here. Also bought a rosemary plant. I love the smell of rosemary. I bought a 4 pack of Brussels Sprouts for the other planter. I still need to buy a cherry tomato plant or two. And I need to buy a container to plant the potatoes
in. We have planted potatoes like this for many years. We only planted potatoes in the ground one time. Once was enough.
Yesterday I was a bad girl again. As of today I am banned from Escapees forum. All because I posted on a "political" thread. I did not start it I just posted about creating a micro-homestead. What I posted wasn't political (unless talking about homesteading books is political). But I got warned... again.
Your warning level on http://www.rvnetwork.com has increased due to political posting/participating in the political topic “Ca-lapse of the US Dollar” These types of post are strictly prohibited on the Escapees Discussion Forum and are against the forum rules you agreed to upon joining.
Rule #2: Absolutely no discussions regarding religion or politics. Posts that are political or religious in nature will be removed and all participants will be warned.
Rule#6: No Trolling! Do not start topics or discussions in order to cause conflict on the forum.
And then I got angry because the weekend moderator did not get warned and he posted about guns in the thread!
So I posted what I really thought about the whole mess in a thread called "Warn" (I did not start the thread). I also kinda chewed out the weekend moderator in an email.
[quote:1ajsc1y1]That's because some folks are not spanked while others are. The "teacher's pets" don't ever get slapped down like other. This is bull. This post will result in my third warning and I will be banned. In the words of Rhett Butler "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn". I got warned for complaining about images in a post being deleted with out any warning. This is the ONLY forum I'm on that either does not resize automatically or allows large images. I no longer care. I'm not RV PC enough for this bunch. I see some like Barbaraok , Kirk & LindaH insult others and say things that the rest of us would get warned off about, yet the powers that be do NOTHING to them. I think they play favourites excessively. And now not only I, but many others get warned yet they do NOTHING to their weekend moderator? I don't want to post on a forum like that. As far as I'm concerned Escapees... that is strike three and you are gone!
Today I found this in my Spam folder...
Your warning level has been increased on http://www.rvnetwork.com
due to going public with your grievances. This has maxed out your warning level causing you to be banned from http://www.rvnetwork.com
These types of posts are not allowed on the Escapees Discussion Forum and are against the rules you agreed to upon joining.
Rule #3: If you have any concerns, questions, or problems contact an Admin. Going public with your grievances is automatic grounds to be banned, regardless of your warn status.
So no more putting up with Escapees putting down skoolies and people who do not RV like "they" do!
