We are planning on using our check to help friends of ours. They invented a board game a few years back and they want to get it to market. We are going to use it to help them get closer to that reality. It'll likely be used for graphic design, printing and manufacturing.

I've had my eye on them for a few years but I've finally decided to buy one. On one hand $500 is pricey but on the other hand my insurance deductible is $5000.

Now that the electronic versions have come down in price I've thought about going high tech but I think I'll stick to the old reliable pull cord. I have enough things to keep charged on a trip.

A Message to the Government

Something along these lines should have been put in place instead of spending $$$ Trillions $$$ that “We the people” will ultimately be paying for through higher prices and taxes.

Treasury attorneys review bank seizures of $1,200 aid checks

I wouldn't care if my bank took my check and applied it to my credit card balance [which is up-to-date [and at 0%]], but I do not need the money. I just plan on paying down my balance anyway. Few things in my life are the way that I want them, but there are definitely people in worse positions:
Quote:
A mother of five living in a domestic abuse shelter sought legal help because she was unable to receive her check due to a frozen account. Because court services have been reduced, her initial hearing date was not scheduled until June.
Quote:
Treasury was warned weeks ago about the potential danger of letting the payments be siphoned off. On April 9, Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) sent a joint letter to Mnuchin urging him to prevent the funds from going to private collectors settling prior debts.

Might have to raise the rent.

I was notified that my tenants would have difficulty paying rent since they have been furloughed, so I didn't collect rent this month. Yesterday I went to work on the house and found a brand new Honda motorcycle in the garage. Money's too tight to pay rent, but not to tight to buy a new motorcycle (I've never owned a new vehicle at all).

In fairness, it was not clear at the time that unemployment would be more lucrative than working, or that federal money was coming.

I applied for unemployment, but almost all of my W2 pay came after Arizona's arbitrary deadline of September First, 2019. I received an e-mail ten days ago that I may be eligible for Pandemic Unemployment Insurance and they will contact me if they need more information.

Do I need unemployment? Not currently. Will I be approved? I don't know, but many things can go wrong between when I applied and when I may possibly potentially maybe receive money.

As I keep saying, I do not want higher pay, I just want more hours.

When our boss announced that the state was approving teletherapy I asked for teleclients. He responded:
Quote:
This is only temporary until things return back to normalcy and then in person session will resume.
Today he told me:
Quote:
We are actually exploring providing teletherapy for clients in more remote areas like Safford and Show Low/Payson with therapists down here in the Valley.
I asked if I could work with remote clients and reminded him that I asked about it just over a month ago.

Oh! He responded!

He just repeated himself and asked if any of my clients would benefit.

My clients already have a therapist!
