I’ll admit it. When I signed up for telephone service through VOIPO I had my doubts. I was a wary of voice over internet protocol phone service to begin with and I couldn’t see how this company could offer the service they do, with all the bells and whistles, for such inexpensive rates. I tried it and now I am a
believer. I have, in fact, gone ahead and subscribed for an entire year and am saving even more money.
I honestly can’t begin to describe the bang you get for your buck. If you have any concerns about voice quality let me say this – it is MUCH better than my regular landline phone. Tech support is US based and
these people are a wonderful example of what customer service/relations should be.
Activation is free, modem is shipped to you free, and there is no cancellation fee. They also offer toll free and forwarded numbers at very low prices. The modem is portable – take it and your home phone with you when you travel – as long as a broadband connection is available.
I won’t even attempt to cover all the features included, but suffice it to say there are a lot of them and you would pay extra through other voip services for some of them. Check it out – it’s worth the few
minutes it will take to see what they can offer you.
Years ago I paid my phone company, Windstream, formerly Alltel, $25 to block, and have paid them $4.99 a month ever since, simply to NOT have long distance on my landline. Imagine my surprise when I opened
a phone bill to find $5.63 for “carrier change charge” and $19.37 billed from ILD Teleservices on behalf
of Reliant Communications”, both companies I had never heard of. Continue reading ‘Long distance carrier change – slamming’ »
It’s obvious to all that the US is in a heck of a financial mess. Numerous businesses and financial institutions have their hands stuck out wanting money from the government – from the TAXPAYERS- to bail them out. Could it be possible that their own financial problems are the result of poor business decisions and waste? Probably. Continue reading ‘Financial Stupidity’ »
When the brand of tea tree soap I used was discontinued I decided to make my own as I wasn’t all that pleased with some of the others I tried. It’s easy and fun to do, cheaper than most you buy in stores, and best of all, you can experiment with adding other ingredients to design a soap perfect for your own needs.

I never walked two miles to school nor did I study by candle or oil lamp. The outhouse was long gone by the time I came along, although I do remember people in my neighborhood who still used them. I even remember an older couple who, although they had a truck and a car, often went to town in a wagon pulled by a mule. Do YOU remember Continue reading ‘Do you remember…’ »
I haven’t listed anything on Ebay in quite some time – I wasn’t happy about their fee increases or the fact that while a buyer can leave negative feedback for sellers, sellers can’t leave negative for buyers. Now I notice something else about their feedback system that, well, quite frankly annoys me more than the first two changes combined……. Continue reading ‘Is it true that Ebay sucks?’ »

I have to say, sauerkraut may be an acquired taste. Over time I’ve experiments and found what I have to call my favorite sauerkraut recipe and am going to share it with you. It’s easy to make, just keep in mind I don’t measure the ingredients when I make mine so the amounts are estimates – you’ll need to experiment to find your preferences. Drag out your old faithful crockpot and let’s get started. Continue reading ‘Mmmmm… Sauerkraut !’ »
I haven’t subscribed to Club Pogo in at least two years now. On July 4th I visited Pogo for the first time in ages and was excited to see an ad for 15% off Club Pogo. While I think $39.99 is a bit steep, I was willing to consider $24.99. Of course the ad was misleading – I wasn’t eligible – it was only for “new” subscribers… Continue reading ‘Pogo Is No-Go’ »
