My son is starting K next month. The school will not give us a supply list until the first day of class!! That means we can't take advantage of any 'Back to school' sales, and we will not have much time to shop around for good prices : It is just really frustrating because I feel that we will likely pay 3x as much as we would if we already had the list and could hit multiple sales. Is this typical??

I simply refused to sign anything or do anything until the adjuster...

I want to get the replacement/retail value of our car if at all possible.

Let's be supportive and play nice!! The OP was just looking for help!!
We were rear ended by a commercial Dump truck the other day. We have a 1994 Subaru Legacy wagon that was/is a very dependable car. We JUST (as in less than 2 weeks ago) put a new clutch in, and we did another $1,600 in repairs in mid January. The car still runs and drives fine, but I think the total amount of repair needed will exceed the KBB value and we will and up with a salvage title and a check. I am trying to find out tricks and tips for getting the insurance...
So our neighbors (who my son plays with a lot/backyard borders ours) bought a trampoline today. They see NO problem with letting multiple kids jump at once. I see a HUGE problem with that. My 6 year old son wants to jump at the same time as the other kids, who are all older and bigger than him (youngest is 10) I am sticking by this, even though the neighbors thinks I am being silly. Please can anyone help me out here?? I am not a complete safety freak, but isn't it super...
I am sick of hearing stories like this. In one of the articles I reading about this case the journalist pointed out that no one would have questioned what was in a bottle, and that the dangers from improperly mixed formula are much worse than alcohol in breast milk. ETA Oops I guess that is mentioned in the linked article as well!

Oh and I found this bit especially annoying: Quote: "It is quite unusual for a mother to be breast-feeding her...

I mean, there is a physical REFLEX when...
