Reported Walmart as a fraud

Walmart advertised a $35 off of a purchase with opening their credit card account.  I purchased $88 at Walmart.com.  They said we would see a credit for $35 within 2 statements.  Did not see credit, so I paid off and cancelled credt card.  Attempted to contact the credit card division 5 ways and got no help, only voice mail.

Penn Foster letter to Frank Britt, CEO

It has been a nightmare attending your online "school."  Materials are not updated, instructors and scorers do not know what is in the course materials, and scorers do not communicate well with instructors.  Course materials are very poor.

You should be ashamed of yourself for not keeping abreast of what is happening in your "school."  I'm thinking of sending a copy of this email to PA Dept of Ed.  Your school should not be allowed to operate.  You are preparing your students very poorly.  I am taking the medical coding course now and I can't wait to get out of this school.  Never again!

Nutritious food, not enough or too expensive?

The first thing to do is to make nutritious food affordable. There are food banks, but they give stuff that is not nutritious and starchy, no fruits or vegetables. Affordability is the prime reason why many people cannot eat nutritiously Any big food companies know this. They don’t care; they just want their money. It all boils down to the almighty buck.

RIP David Bowie

A shame because now we have to listen to the likes of Taylor Swift and Country music and this new pop crap.  Not much talent in them thar hills today, yuch, yuch.  Swift can't even carry a tune; she sings off-key.  I wonder if she got her brain from a mail order catalog.
