Do we all need something else except a nursing home?

Question by cheri: Do we all need something else except a nursing home?
No Nursing Home for Me

About 2 years ago my wife and I were on a cruise through the western Mediterranean aboard a Princess liner. At dinner we noticed an elderly lady sitting alone along the rail of the grand stairway in the main dining room. I also noticed that all the staff, ships officers, waiters, busboys, etc., all seemed very familiar with this lady. I asked our waiter who the lady was, expecting to be told that she owned the line, but he said he only knew that she had been on board for the last four cruises, back-to-back.

As we left the dining room one evening I caught her eye and stopped to say hello. We chatted and I said, “I understand you’ve been on this ship for the last four cruises.” She replied, “Yes, that’s true.! ” I stated, “I don’t understand” and she replied, without a pause, “It’s cheaper than a nursing home.”

So, there will be no nursing home in my future. When I get old and feeble, I am going to get on a Princess Cruise Ship.
The average cost for a nursing home is $ 200 per day. I have checked on reservations on a Princess and I can get a long term discount and senior discount price of $ 135 per day. That leaves $ 65 a day for:

1. Gratuities which will only be $ 10 per day.

2. I will have as many as 10 meals a day if I can waddle to the restaurant, or I can have room service (which means I can have breakfast-in-bed every day of the week).

3. Princess has as many as three swimming pools, a workout room, free washers and dryers, and shows every night.

4. They have free toothpaste and razors, and free soap and shampoo.

5. They will even treat you like a customer, not a patient. An extra $ 5 worth of tips will have the entire staff scrambling to help you.

6. I will get to meet new people every 7 or 14 days.

7. T. V. broken? Light bulb need changing? Need to have the mattress replaced? No Problem! They will fix everything and apologize for your inconvenience.
. Clean sheets and towels every day, and you don’t even have to ask for them.

9. If you fall in the nursing home and break a hip you are on Medicare; if you fall and break a hip on the Princess ship they will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life.

Now hold on for the best! Do you want to see South America, the Panama Canal, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, or name where you want to go?

Princess will have a ship ready to go. So don’t look for me in a nursing home, just call shore to ship.

PS: And don’t forget, when you die, they just dump you over the side — at no cost.

What do you think of Tomkat baby girl’s name?

Question by Nobody: What do you think of Tomkat baby girl’s name?
Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise Have a Girl!
Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise “joyously welcomed the arrival of a baby girl, Suri, today,” Cruise’s rep said in a statement after PEOPLE first broke the news Tuesday afternoon.
“The child weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces and was 20 inches in length. Both mother and daughter are doing well.”

The name Suri has its origins in Hebrew meaning “princess,” or in Persian meaning “red rose,” the rep added.

In October, barely six months into their romance, an ecstatic Cruise and Holmes revealed that they were expectant parents.

Cruise, 43, and Holmes, 27, had made no secret of their desire to start a family together: When asked by PEOPLE last June if they were planning to have children, Holmes smiled and said simply, “Yes.”

Friends of the Toledo, Ohio-bred Holmes called her perfectly suited to her upcoming role. “She almost seems born for motherhood,” said Oliver Hudson, actress Kate Hudson’s brother and an old pal who co-starred with Holmes in “Dawson’s Creek.” “She’s a nurturer. She’s got mother qualities a lot of girls her age don’t have.”

Cruise, meanwhile, is “a great dad already,” according to his pal, actress Leah Remini. He has two children from his marriage to Nicole Kidman: Isabella, 13, and Connor, 11, whom Cruise and Kidman adopted as infants. Remini told PEOPLE that both kids are “so cool. You can sit and talk to them about life.”

As for marriage, Cruise and Holmes plan to tie the knot soon, Cruise said on the German TV program “Wetten, dass..?” on April 1. “In summer we want to get married. I won’t let this woman get away.”

Immediately ahead for the new dad: the May 5 release of “Mission: Impossible 3.” Holmes stars in the recently released satirical film about Washington politics, “Thank You for Smoking.”

California Labor board?

Question by cheryl d: California Labor board?
I keep getting letters from my old company saying I owe them over $ 700 dollars. I never received this money, I have told them this several times. Last time I responded I told them to provide proof that the money was sent to me. They just now responded with none, still saying I owe them.
Heres the deal, my last two days I had worked was paid to me June 8th (this was for the pay period of 05/14-05/27). I didnt receive anything after.
This is their letter:
“The direct deposit you received on June 8, 2007 is for the pay period 05/28-06/10. As previously stated [company] pays current with adjustment in arrears. That means you were paid your full 80 hours for two weeks ending on Sunday, 06/10 after payday of Friday, 06/08. However, you did not work any hours during this time. The net amount for this direct deposit was $ 180.76. Thus, as you can see, you did not receive a direct deposit in the amount of $ 734.34. The net overpayment total of $ 734.34 is the amount you owe Princess Cruises.”
So they are jumping back and forth trying to say they paid me in advance for the two weeks I didnt work. I never received this money, all I received was for the last two days I HAD worked, on June 8th.

How do I get them to stop saying I owe them, when Ive already written them formally several times saying such. Where do they get off trying to say I owe them for not working? I’d understand if they had SENT me the money, but they hadn’t.
I cant ignore it because they will try to send me to collections and that will affect my credit.

And look, they admit that they didnt send me the money in this last letter, so how can they say I owe it, if by own admission they never sent it?
So my question is, do I go to the California Labor board? How do I contact them. I tried looking on their site, and there are so many departments Im not sure where to go.
In this last letter they sent, if you look at the second to last line above, by their own admission they did not send this money to me. Plus they really would need to look at their own records to provide proof they had sent it. To send them a copy of my bank statement infringes on my privacy.
I did try communicating over the phone in the beginning, but all I got was voice mails after voice mails, and when they responded to my voice mails they were vague and stated they would send me the letter.
Also, to have documented proof, everything at this point would need to be in letter format.

But so I am right that for them to continue to say I owe after I continuously dispute it, is harrassment?
Lawyers cost money, I was hoping by going to the labor board I could get them to stop that way…

Best answer:

Answer by furmanator1957
have you sent them a copy of your bank statement showing you didn’t receive the deposit also have you talked to someone on the phone instead of letters and the last thing if you have done all those have you talked to lawyer about filing a harassment suit
