Thanks a lot, Radio Shack

Well, I actually went to http://www.tellradioshack.com to fill out one of those surveys that enters you into a sweepstakes and gives you a $10 coupon off your next purchase. When I finished, an image of the coupon appeared, and I hit "print." A message appeared saying this feature worked only with Internet Explorer, and Firefox froze. On restarting Firefox and attempting to return to the coupon, the following message displayed: "As mentioned to you when the coupon was first displayed, the coupon cannot be accessed after you leave the coupon page. RadioShack cannot retrieve or re-issue coupons due to failure to print or save the coupon." Great reward after buying an overpriced product and taking the time to fill out their survey.

One more reason not to shop at phonecard shack.

Believe me, I avoid them whenever possible. I was desperate. My cable modem went bad, so I called in another modem I had loaned to a family member who was not using it. Problem was that the power adapter was missing. So I paid an outrageous $25 for a RS adapter that was double the amps I needed. Like I said, I was desperate. I figured I wouldn't have had any better luck in Best Buy.

Hey John, how's it going?
I know this might sound like it's coming out of nowhere, but I'm curious as to your opinion, as a psychologist, and as someone who is just generally pretty chill whose opinions I always respect, on this place: Orchid Recovery Center. Of course, feel no pressure to actually go to that site or read anything or to even give an opinion, I don't want to add any sort of burden to anything else in your days, so it's more of a, "If you happen to have some spare time and looking at this website seems like a fun idea and you don't mind writing back, go for it!" request.

Understand that I am not an expert on rehab, but after browsing through this site for a while this morning, I have to say that I am very favorably impressed. What they are saying about addiction and treatment needs for women makes a lot of sense to me. Recovery should be holistic and relational, and the spectrum of programs for a holistic approach at Orchid looks fantastic. I would say that this place is definitely worth considering.
