So, I wrote a poem for my great uncles who have passed. Unsurprisingly, my family wants me to read it at the service for the one who just passed. (service is on the 17th)
I don't care if someine else reads it, but I don't do readings. I don't like how I sound, so I don't like how I make my writings sound.
A couple people are pretty mad I won't, and a few others are trying to bribe me, or get Chris or Dale to read it.
Why does every little thing around here turn into a cluster fuck??

How long does it usually take for forwarded mail to make its new destination? I put in a forwarding request for my MD rental property. No mail has been delivered in MD BUT no mail has made it to NC either.

I'm getting concerned about where that two month's of mail is, especially if they turn off the power while the rental is on the market. (It's almost impossible to reach a human at BGE and paying online isn't an option)
in general, i would say give it 5-10 days. that way it gives the post office time to take the forward mail and send it to the processing plant. then the mail get run thru the forward system and slaps a yellow label show the forward address. then is process thru like regular mail to is forward address. that should take 3-5 days. give or take. its usually pretty quick 5 days or so.

in your case. 2 months is too long. i would call the md post office and see whats going on with your mail that is to be forward. now the forwards is valid for 18 months from the start date. so check on that. also remember that first and second class mail is forward able. third class mail doesnt. if everything is good at the post office. you will need to get a hold of the utlity company.

FWIW, I was having a little cloudy. I play CF on softball team, went to catch a line drive, and caught it in the chest (didn't catch it :( ) that's what sent me over the top. Eye doc referred me to PCL eye people. Insurance paid for a 45 yr old to get it. I was the youngest one in the waiting room on the day of surgery.
Best decision ever.
The second eye was done at 49yrs old
i'll have you beat. i'm 44 years old and both eyes will be done 3 weeks apart. just got word that the insurance is covering it all except the co pay. not a bad deal.

Okay, Jeeples poll time. The BA 4x4 Cargo Rack looks nicely made. However, the coating is a little messed up on one piece.

Please vote:

1. Life is short, just install the mutha.
2. Contact the manufacturer for a replacement piece.

I'm leaning towards 1 but my OCD and other mental illnesses are kicking in.
give them a call. they might just send you a new piece. i was missing a few nuts and bolts from the ba rear bumper. so i called and they were happy to send the parts. the bad thing was that it took 3 emails and 1 month to get them.
