I so rarely get a weekend off, and now that I have one I can't think of anything I want to do and have just hung around the house. I'm becoming something of a hermit.

Join the Fortnite wave... [wink]

This pales in comparison to HiAndTight's city of Milwaukee and sister woes, but now that Apple is about to phase out iTunes (and force people into paying monthly for Apple Music), I'm wondering how I'll retain the thousands of tracks currently in my iTunes account that did not originate as Apple purchases.

I know that Kids These Days just stream everything through their phones, but I'm pretty attached to the content on my iPod. My iTunes content is all on an older iMac that I suppose I could just keep for the music files (it's old enough to be upgrade resistant now), but that seems like an unnecessary reason to have an extra desktop sitting around.


These are really what external hard drives are made for [smile]

You could also transfer from itunes to Google Play if you wanted.

I’m pretty sure Apple’s Music app covers this.

confirmed:
from the USAToday network of papers today
"This change will occur automatically with the release of the next MacOS (code name Catalina) in fall 2019. Those that choose to install the updated OS will have their music, podcasts and TV shows transferred to each of the associated apps.

Playlists, smart playlists and music that you ripped from your CDs will all show up in the Music app. You’ll still be able to buy music from the iTunes Store, and iTunes gift cards will continue to work as they do today."

The problem I have run into is that a lot of the music I purchased through iTunes is DRM protected, so I cannot play it on my Android. I also cannot remove the DRM without either paying Apple $25 to subscribe to iTunes Match or burn all the songs onto a CD, delete the music, then put it back on the computer.

Your music isn't going anywhere and you won't need to pay the monthly fee to get to it. Take a deep breath you old-timers!

You guys lost me with all this isongs and extra hard drive talk. I'm still trying to figure out how to move my Head East and Bad Co. albums from 8 track to cassette.

When you're driving with your cruise on but the person in front of you isn't and their top speed varies +/- 10 MPH.

I find cruise almost impossible to use because of what you just stated. People are just so clueless as to what is going on around them. It is a constant headache.

Today, at two different stoplights, I had to beep my horn at the fool ahead of me when the light turned green and they were on their phones, texting, whatever. They just sit there while all the traffic behind them waits on them to figure out the light turned green. I get up next to them on the straight away and look over to see a 20 something mother, with 2 kids strapped in the backseat, while she continued to be on her phone, looking down. People are on their phones even with little ones in the vehicle and paying zero attention to anything around them. How freaking selfish can people be?

Was also waiting at a roundabout next to an older couple. (2 lane roundabout) Traffic was heavy, we were waiting a long time, and you could see it wasn't about to get belter by the cars coming. The old lady driving the car next to me got pissed and just drove right out into the traffic. 2 cars slammed on the breaks to miss her, another one actually drove up onto the roundabout a couple feet, and I have no idea how there was no contact by a single car due to how heavy the traffic was. That old lady just had enough, and hoped everyone else was paying attention. It was unbelievable.

wow tr, those are pretty crazy! I drove from AZ to MT a few weeks ago, and I'm using my cruise control the entire time on highways that aren't busy but have 65-80mph speed limits. There were some cars that flew up on my several times because they would speed up, move over, then slow down. Why did they need to pass me? Also, I hate it when cars drive at the same speed as me but on my rear bumpers. In drivers ed 20-something years ago, this was a scenario where we were told to tap the horn gently. Then again, we were told to tap the horn in many circumstances that might get someone shot these days.

Adaptive cruise control is one of the greatest inventions ever.


In other car related news wow do I hate the Chicago suburbs. What a dump of a place to live. I wonder how much you must hate your life to deal with that traffic everyday. I go to my hotel and then wait for almost 7pm to roll around before I dare go to a store or get food. Absolute trash motorists too. I frequented/lived in the NW area for 3-4 years at times and that was enough for me. Going back a few weeks recently has really reminded me what a pile of crud the area and people are.

This pretty much sums up 99% of what bugs me. Most of it while driving (please put your phones down people!!), but also just other general, every day, contact with other people. Pedestrian traffic can be just as annoying. Example one: I'm waking down the sidewalk, a group of 2 -4 people walking abreast are walking towards me filling up the entire sidewalk. Somethings gotta give. Many times there is absolutely no effort at all to make room on their part. So, what I do sometimes is just stop in my tracks and make them go around me. Example two: Walking down the sidewalk, and an individual or group of people exit a building without looking to see if someone is about to pass by (me). They just saunter out slowly completely unaware of other human beings. The George Castanza inside of me is screaming "We are living in a society here people!".

There are huge spaces where no one walks at Miller Park where you can stand and wait for someone.

Instead, people stand and wait exactly where everyone else needs to walk.

Biggest thing that is bugging me lately again is people walking into the elevator as soon as the doors open. Hello other people use the elevator and would like to get off but no you are in such a hurry you don't let anyone off and you are already smashing the floor button and the close elevator door button.

Stand dead center of the elevator door about an inch from it. It's fun to freak out the people who try to shove their way in immediately.

That bugs me too, I have dog and when in my condo in Florida have to take him in and out on the elevators 3-4 times a day. The door opens the first floor and people are standing in the way and don't think to step back and let everyone out. And on top of it if they don't like dogs they give me a dirty look like it's my fault he came so close to them. Its a harmless beagle not a pit bull, jeezuz.

While I am it I also don't care for people who hate dogs.

My Mom and Dad moved into assisted living about 14 months ago. It was really my Mom that needed the care (diagnosed with Alsheimers, but sister and I disagree with each other regarding that diagnosis, there was a medication issue that happened that put my Mom into her current "state", but that's a long story). My Dad just went because he did not want her to be there alone. A little over 2 weeks ago, my Dad fell and broke his hip. He is now out of the hospital and out of rehab and back at the assisted living place with my Mom. So, now my Dad needs extra care and there was a meeting to discuss that and how the costs would change while he needed this extra care.

At this meeting it showed that my Mom currently gets 21 hours of care and my Dad will now require 25 hours of care. They don't make a record of the actual hours of care that each receives, they just bill based on what a computer program spits out after they enter what care is required (showering, bathroom, brushing teeth and assistance with dentures, administering medicine, etc). The problem is that it is clear that neither one of them are getting anywhere close to this number of hours of care a week. My Mom is probably getting about half of that amount. When you bring this up they just basically state "Well, sorry, that is what the computer is spitting out". They act like we are being unreasonable in questioning this and that we just didn't understand how the program works. I used with the analogy with them of an Electrician coming to their house and them giving the electrician a list of items they wanted done and the electrician then plugged that into their program and having it spit out 5 hours of work. Then, the electrician completes the work in 2 hours and hands them a bill for 5 hours of work. Would they object to that or would they just pay it?

In the end I really think that it's just a poor way of billing. If they just had a flat fee for each service or level of care rather than an hourly rate that has nothing to do with actual hours of care actually provided it would probably be a bit more palatable to hear. The hourly bs is just causes confusion and anger.

I am fairly confident that you have to keep track of the service hours if you are charging by the hour.

My dad passed away in May of 2018. For the last few months of his life, he had in-home care from Comfort Keepers. Some of the care was deemed medical, but a lot of it was more personal care stuff. He was healthy enough to stay in his home, but not healthy enough to be totally on his own.

Comfort Keepers caregivers turned in timesheets that he signed, and a chart of checkbox items that they helped with each day. He signed the documents every week and was billed according to time spent and their hourly rate. Not sure if your situation calls for that, but it doesn't seem unreasonable.

After he died, I found an expired insurance policy that included a Long Term Care provision that extended coverage even after the Life Insurance portion had ended. I submitted claims based on those timesheets and bills and his estate received a portion of those expenses back. Maybe something for you to check.
