Well, haven't posted in a while. I have been absorbed in my new moderator rule in this huge political debate group I'm in.  BTW, anyone interested in joining let me know and I'll post a link to the group. It's a closed group and there are some fruitcakes in it, but there is some real debating that goes on in there too. I'm getting my feet wet at the mod role and dealing with a large variety of issues, though the most sticky ones are getting in between people that go into anger and start the stupid name calling and such. Almost every single time, I end up having to boot a person from the group.  So, that's part of what I"ve been doing.

The rest is buying Christmas gifts and getting them sent out, sending out Christmas cards, raking and burning leaves, going to work and dealing with the daily grind.  I got a wonderfully nice sized rib roast yesterday at Kroger's.  I went in there to find these small little roasts out in the cooler and I don't like getting a cut of beef like that in such a small size.  It doesn't cook right, at least not for me, it gets over-cooked too easily.  A good roast like that is going to be nice and red on the inside, not pink or medium or anything else.  Usually the small end of the cut will brown nicely for those that want more well-cooked beef.  Well I knocked on the butcher door and asked if they had any larger roasts?  Nope, but we can cut you one to size.  I said about 10 pounds.  They got it very close to 10 pounds and I was very happy.

My new credit card turned out to actually lower my credit score more than it was at before. Why? Because when I asked for a balance transfer from one of my other cards,  I asked for X amount to be transferred.  Well, they transferred the entire amount which was well above my credit limit on that card.  Meaning it's showing I'm over the limit to the credit agencies and that automatically dumped my newly found increases, at least on Experian.  So,, I have asked them to at least increase the credit limit to the amount I owe on the account.  There is no risk to them for that, it's not going to give me any ability to spend anything on it, so I am hoping they will do it.  This credit score business is turning into a real headache.

Posting this one even though unfinished. I have too many drafts in there, got to post something! lol
