Colorado.... I am looking to move to the Denver area.

I want the most beautiful, fun, hip, cool. I have missed mountains too sso I was thinking west side of city so closer to mountains and could have a view. Anyway, what area do I want to look at. Apartment for now and not worried about cost. More about having fun and only a year. I am living in Uptown Minneapolis a couple blocks from a lake and across street from Lunds groceries, a block from library, lots of restaurants so I rarely drive. Oh oh and not far from a Traders Joe. Love my Traders Joe.

Does anyone have fun suggestions.

Eugene Police Department to adopt new Behavioral Health Co-Response Team to handle mental health crises downtown

Since the beginning of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2013 and the murder of George Floyd in 2020, law enforcement agencies across the country have been faced with increased public demand to incorporate mental health professionals into their agencies. The new partnership will make the EPD one of few police departments nationwide to adopt a co-response model for mental health emergencies.

“The primary goal here is recognizing not everybody that's suffering from a behavioral mental health crisis is also committing [a] crime,” Eugene Police Chief Chris Skinner explained. “We're going to try to continue to match the right response with the right need, then we need to have a response for those folks, so we want our partners at Lane County to come alongside of us and [in] a co-response model … we need that tool in our tool belt.”

brokerage CD

brokerage CD. when getting a brokerage cd for a year, can the amount you put in lose money over the course of the year and if the time is fulfilled you end up with money you put in and the interest amount when it is all done even if over the course of time you see your amount go from say 100k to 75k with the fluctuation of market.

i have to buy a laptop and thought maybe labor day sale. what do i have to look out for/

so water spilled on puter and shift no longer works so no capital or question marks or exclamation. i only use it for normal stuff but not gaming or work or whatever else people do that needs lots of power or whatever. though i do not like slow, i get impatient. and i am computer stupid and need easy.

is there anything i have to make sure i have in a laptop/ i generally just grab the lowest price.

thanks for the information.

btw another reason i tend to go cheapest is cause i tend to spill on it like water, wine, diet dr pepper, so behooves me not to invest too much.

there has gotta be a karen....

Is there a law or code about the water pressure in Minneapolis? It seems low.

I have lived in the SW and the NW and never had issue with water pressure. I moved to Minneapolis a year ago and first apartment felt like water just dribbled out and never got too hot for me to put hands under or have it full hot and stand under the shower. And the pressure is so bad I can lather body up while under shower. It was really bad. I started looking at places to buy and would check the showers and seemed they were only a little better but since not in the shower could not really tell. Moved to another apartment. One of the issues I was so excited about was getting a normal shower. LOVE my showers. A hot hot shower. One of my fav daily. But the pressure only seems a little better. Now the shower head is much bigger so I am getting a larger area of spray than the other apartment but still lacks. I have never experienced this in other places I lived.

I have googled if there is an ordinance or code where water pressure is lower than other areas of the country but have not found anything. Does anyone know? Not much I can do but live with it. Still curious.

People, I need help with cheapest long term tv entertainment.

Here is the issue. I got rid of cable over a decade ago. Maybe 15 yrs. I got Netflix when it was $7 a month. That is all I had. My son set it up on my tv and if I watched tv, that is what I used. I had no channels, news, anything, just Netflix and dvds. About 3 yrs ago my son put a fire stick on my tv and I got other options for freetv. Again, he explained nothing so I had no idea what it was about.

A couple weeks ago I started getting text from Amazon saying something was wrong with account and if I did not address I would be canceled. Zillions of text over a period but thought it a scam. I have not been paying for anything. I do not know that I have ever bought anything from Amazon, not big on shopping so was clueless. Then the other day everything was shut off and told I had to call them to fix. Totally clueless. But son said when he moved to Ecuador 7 months ago he closed the account, so I am assuming that is what happened and just took a while to catch up with me.

Now... All my stuff is about two decades old. Way expired on what is happening today. As you can tell from this post, I have no idea or information on what is out there and the best cheapest way to set stuff up. I have a fire. I am paying monthly for Netflix at about $15 a month but do not know how to get Netflix on tv now. I have no one that can help me. I go long periods, like 6 months, without watching tv then will watched continuously then stop again for long periods. I do not want to put much monthly money into watching tv but I want something simple, that will give me some channels that I set up so I understand it this time and not dependent on another to fix any problems. I am even good with getting a new tv if need be and they are not too expensive. I mean clueless what tv is going for too.

Can you give me some ideas please? I tried googling for info, but this is a vague question and when there is no knowledge at all makes it hard to put in search.

Thanks.
