Volunteering This Year 2019

Ok, been thinking about this for a while and some post(s) today made me feel that it is time to start this thread.

Tell us about your volunteering THIS YEAR, how does it help others and yourself.

I will go first:

1) Helping veterans get back to work. Provide counseling, confidence building, listening, caring, resume review, job direction, etc. for veterans struggling with unemployment in the civilian sector due to PTSD, criminal record, age, etc.

2) Helping former teen drug addicts. Much the same work as #1 less the PTSD and age. This

The volunteering helps me as it makes me feel good helping... More

Vacation 2019

It’s time to start thinking about vacation and wondering what some are planning. Clyde & I are thinking about going to Toronto. We like going to other baseball stadiums so thought Toronto might be a good choice, not too far of a drive. Would like to go to Niagra Falls, maybe just an overnight there. Any advice on being a tourist there, what to do, what to avoid, just tossing it around for now. Also interested in anyone else’s plan, but has to be a drive, no flying, lol.

Overcharging Tax

I did take-out for lunch today and realized after leaving they charged 7% sales tax. Why would a store do that ---- I'm pretty sure they can be fined for overcharging tax.

Healthiest counties ranked

https://www.nj.com/politics/2019/03/these-are-the-healthiest-and-least-healthy-counties-in-nj.html

No surprise where Warren and Morris fall. As much as these studies are open for scrutiny based on how they're calculated, you can pretty much see the difference plain as day once you leave Warren county.

SAMSUNG Appliances - BEWARE

Hello all. Wanted to share my experience with my 2yo gas range from Samsung especially if you live in the area. Samsung does an awesome job of finding ANY reason to decline the warranty. 'Not their fault - must be (mice, bugs, etc.)'
If anyone decides to purchase any of these appliances made from Samsung, PLEASE take the warranty from the store where you purchased it. They at least will honor it and make the necessary repairs. (and not insult you in the process)
I do not want anyone to have the same horrible experience that I... More

iMovie vs. WeVideo Choices

Hi
wondered if anyone could recommend which movie editor they prefer, and why

I do have Chrome so was going to use latter, but can always borrow a friend's hard drive computer for iMovie if needed.


Does anyone use it professionally for their business promotion as well on YouTube, etc. and how easy is it then to upload the video files, etc.

Any advice welcome, thanks in advance.
