My experience with Fundable.com

Edited to add: In 2009, the original fundable.com shut down. In 2011, Virtucon Ventures (http://www.virtuconventures.com) purchased the domain. They are not associated with the original Fundable.com or Mr. Pratt, and will be re-launching the site in April of 2012. This page remains as an archival record of my correspondence with Mr. Pratt but should in no way reflect on …

Update on Rob’s hands

Here’s the latest on Rob’s hands. Last week the insurance finally approved his claim and said that he could have the surgery. Yay! I waited to post until we had a surgery date, which… we still don’t have. Why? Because the doctor’s office said that they needed written authorization. It took a couple of days …

09:47 Dear neighbor. Please turn off your alarm clock. This reminds me of being in the dorm when someone leaves their alarm set & skips town. # 09:55 Seriously. The fact that the alarm goes off for 60 seconds and then self-snoozes for five minutes just makes it more annoying. # 11:02 Cake ought to …

Update on Rob’s hands

You might remember about a month ago I mentioned that Rob had gone in to have his hands diagnosed and that the doctor wanted to get him in for surgery right away, as in that week.  The nerves were dying. He’s been jumping through paperwork since then.  We just found out that his worker’s comp …

Demise of Same-Sex Weddings Disheartens Businesses

Is it snarky of me to point out that in addition to the human rights issues, Prop 8 also hurts the economy? Way to protect the American dream, folks. In June, the Williams Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, which studies sexual orientation and the law, estimated that legalizing same-sex ceremonies in the …

00:08 So that thing I was doing instead of dealing with the mold? I’ve now cut my hand & broken the grip I was building, just before finishing. [1. It was a shallow cut and I’m fine, it was just aggravating.] # 00:08 Today = not good. # 00:14 For those keeping score? This is why …
