I wanted to donate online to my local food pantry in time for Thanksgiving. I've done this a few times before so know it works. They have a new website, and obviously someone didn't test it very well. Since that was my job before retiring, I know about testing websites. Smile

I went to the new donation page and clicked on the button that says 'Click Here' to donate. A new window opened using the same URL with the same 'Click Here' button - sigh.

I sent them an email telling them about the problem, but haven't heard back yet. If they don't get it fixed I will give extra for xmas. I usually give for both xmas and thanksgiving.

My Dr gave me a prescription for Niacin because she thought it might be cheaper going thru my insurance to get it, although she said over the counter would work just as well. I took it to Walmart yesterday and they said insurance didn't cover it, but they would fill it for $5 something. I said go ahead and I would pick it up today. When I got home there was a message saying the prescription had been filled and I owed $56+ - Frown I went in today and asked about it, she said they changed the prescription so the insurance company would cover it. It was actually $117 but after insurance it was $56 for one month! I said thanks but no thanks, I would get it over the counter, so I got 2 months for $12. Talk about price gouging.

I finished reading the library book Quatrain by Sharon Shinn. Sci/Fi - pretty good.

    Wow - what a bunch of jerks.

    I love reading your posts. When I need a new book to read I check to see if you liked it.

    Are you using Internet Explorer? I run into this problem all the time at work, especially with secure sites. It's a compatibility issue with IE that affects windows that pop up. You can click the compatibility button near the address bar, or try another browser. I don't think it's their website at all.
