Iím Joe Biden and I approve this message.

What do we have against this? This is the best opinion you are going to get, instead of just guesses of what they are going to like.

I thought it was pretty straightforward after this.

Anyone who wants more info can feel free to PM me.

Honeywell RTH9580WF Wi-Fi Smart Touchscreen Thermostat

Reviewed in the United States on March 26, 2014
My former wife loves to take expensive vacations. We live in Ohio, which doesnít exactly have extravagant places to see unless you like to watch grass growing or interstate construction. While we make OK money, Iím convinced she felt the need to single handedly improve the US economy by taking elaborate vacations: Broadway shows in New York City, gambling in Las Vegas, Spaís in Arizona, sightseeing in San Francisco. The airlines know me so well they ask about my dog when I call to make reservations. His name is Fred.

In my attempt to try and save whatever I could so the princess could have her nice things I bought this Honeywell Wi-Fi enabled device so I could adjust the HVAC while we were away piling up massive amounts of debt on Mickey Mouse watches. I thought we could save a few bucks by keeping the temp cool in the winter and warm in the summer. The device was easy to install. I did not have the ďblueĒ connector so I had to re-purpose the green one - this required an adjustment to the actual HVAC unit in our home. There are plenty of videos on Youtube to demonstrate how to do this. Within an hour I was up and running.

The device works flawlessly. You can adjust the temp from anywhere you have a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. Little did I know that my ex had found someone that had a bit more money than I did and decided to make other travel plans. Those plans included her no longer being my wife and finding a new travel partner (Carl, a banker). She took the house, the dog and a good chunk of my 401k, but didnít mess with the wireless access point or the Wi-Fi enabled Honeywell thermostat.

Since this past Ohio winter has been so cold Iíve been messing with the temp while the new love birds are sleeping. Doesnít everyone want to wake up at 7 AM to a 40 degree house? When they are away on their weekend getaways, I crank the heat up to 80 degrees and back down to 40 before they arrive home. I can only imagine what their electricity bills might be. It makes me smile. I know this wonít last forever, but I canít help but smile every time I log in and see that it still works. I also canít wait for warmer weather when I can crank the heat up to 80 degrees while the love birds are sleeping. After all, who doesnít want to wake up to an 80 degree home in the middle of June?

Anker Wireless Charger, PowerWave Pad Qi-Certified 10W Max

1.0 out of 5 stars DONT TAKE THIS ON YOUR BOAT!!!

So I took this out on my boat last weekend and let me tell you I had a hell of a time. I stopped to grab a bite to eat on an island, so of course I used my new Anker, dropped her down into the water and went to eat. Of course just what I need, I came back and my boat was gone and my gosh darned Anker was just floating in the water. I swam to shore and hitchhiked back to my truck and went home, to receive a call from the coast guard!! They call me and tell me they have my freaking boat, impounded. So I show up and I have to pay a freaking fine to get my boat back!!! I tried to contact Anker about their terrible product but they didn't help me at all. So now I'm stuck with a floating Anker, a broken boat, and no will to ever hit the water again.

Frumspeak: The First Dictionary of Yeshivish F First Edition

This is a gevaldike sefer, and I got asach hanaa from it. The etzem dictionary is gantz useful for talmidim of the shprach, and it's also geshmak to stam read through, which is a big toeles.
The hakdoma, on the metzius of yeshivish, is tief, and the other shticklach at the haschala (including a translation of Hamlet's soliloquy) are peledik.
I mamish hold of this sefer.

2 Hours away.. plenty to do in the area. Pool should be open

Pool is open, though they don't have adjoining rooms available for my nights and they don't allow the number of kids I have in one room (I'm over by one).

Do you think they will stop me? Any other solutions?

did u search the website using filters?
I don't think coronavirus-related pool closings are listed on the website...

PPP, as owner compensation for a self-employed person.

As a sole proprietor getting "owner compensation" directly to my personal account (I don't have a business account), are there any limitations on how fast or on what I spend the money?

Looking for a Marriott brand hotel (where I could use free nights) within an hour and a half from Lakewood. Pool a must. Also want at least one or two local attractions for younger children.

Don't all answer at once.

Wasn't sure if they have outdoor seating, but love this Cafe
I believe they always had outdoor seating, even before corona.
