This and That

I live in Greenfield with my husband and cat. I work full time. Frugality and simplicity have been a part of my life long before they became popular and it has made life a lot less stressful. I love volunteering, home improvement/decorating, crafting and gardening.

Frustration with Delivery of Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel

Over the past year, we have had constant frustration with the delivery of our Journal/Sentinel.  It is supposed to be delivered by 6 a.m. - at least that is what we were constantly told!  We only get the Sunday and Wednesday papers.  Usually, on Sundays we are lucky if the paper is on our front stoop by 7:30 a.m.  We like to check the ads and read a few parts of the paper before leaving for church.  We pay extra for the special TV section.  Numerous time, we don't receive the TV Section; the coupons; flyers from the usual establishments.  I realize that, except for the TV Section, the coupons and various store coupons may not be in the paper for a specific week.

Thanks To The Greenfield Fire Department

 Last Wednesday, March 11th, our condo association experienced something they have never experienced before!  We had a fire in one of our buildings.  Everyone got out; no one was hurt.  Not even the pets.  There is major fire damage to one of the unit garages and 3 families cannot live in their units due to smoke/water damage.  Another family has some minor damage.

Customer Service?
