Launching Mission Playable

Posted by stil29 on May 19, 2010 at 4:22 PM Comments comments (0)


 My name is Jordan Rankin and I'm a sophomore from the Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois council. I am working on my Gold Award. The purpose of my project is to collect unused music instruments that are collecting dust and get them to kids who can't necessarily afford instruments.  If you know of someone who has an instrument or someone who needs an instrument, join the web page here. Join with a notation of Mission: Playable!  I will contact you with how to get the instrument to me.  At this time, I have no money to pay for shipping of the instrument, but I can write you a receipt of an approximate value of your instrument.  I can't accept money donations, but it would be wonderful if you know of anyone able to donate time into fixing the instruments.  


Thank you!!

No new Iphone for me according to At&t

Posted by stil29 on May 19, 2010 at 12:46 PM Comments comments (0)

Yes Paula

I am now aware of those rules. My issues however arise because I specifically asked at least three customer service reps if changing my plan would effect anything including my upgrade date. It was very important to me to be able to upgrade to the new iPhone. I was informed that changing my plan was allowed at anytime without penalty. I spend at least $450 a month on 6 lines. My upgrade date was changed from 6/20/10 to the Nov date after assurances that this would not happen. When I called two days ago to discuss the issue, I was rudely told it was due to late payments that effects the upgrade date. My contention is that I should have been told before I changed my plan. Multiple reps were told I was going to get the new iPhone in June and that as a family we enjoyed standing in line for the phone. I made changes to my plan by decreasing my plan minutes while at the same time adding another family plan to my account. I spend the same amount of money now as

before the change. I spoke to 2 floor suppervisors and was awaiting spreaking to another when because I was on the phone so long my iPhone went dead. I am most upset by the cavalier attitude I have experienced with business customer service about how nothing can be done. I should have been informed that changing my plan could change my upgrade date. If I had been told this I never would have changed it. Please forward this to your upline supervisor. I would like my upgrade date changed back to the 6/20/2010 date. I am so upset by this issue I am considering taking my business elsewhere as well as taking these discussions public through twitter, YouTube and my blog.


Thank you,

3 weeks into a new way of life

OK so here goes, I am 3 weeks into the low carb lifestyle again! Nevermind that I did it for a whole year about three years ago and then just quit after losing mucho weight because I wanted candy no less!! I have lost about six inches in my waist so far. It's hard to weigh myself because I use a wheelchair for mobility and have to have a doctor's RX to use the wheelchair scale at the hospital. For God sakes the truck scales would be easier!! Yup, honestly.
