About Me

i better update my profile!! I’m a retired RN, BSN who was born in Wisconsin, who moved to northern CA near Sacramento at age 35, and lived there FOR 31 YEARS THAT WENT BY IN A BLINK OF AN EYE. Last November, 2018, my.husband and I moved back to our home state of WI, just to experience the worst winter that most people could remember! Talk about culture and weather shock! We moved from a city of 350,000 to one of 5,000, with HORRIBLE internet service. But we are with our families again.

How I Can Help

During the last 10 years of my Nursing career, I worked in Quality and Risk Management, particularly in Infection Prevention. I am very knowledgable about statistics, and how they can easily fool people. I also can spot some instances where reviews are fake and being written by either owners or employees of the company. When I make a mistake and order from a horrible or fraudulent company, I fight back. I let other customers know why I wouldn't recommend that they buy from that compan

I'm a Prime member, and I order almost everything from Amazon, so the money I save on shipping outweighs the cost of prime. However, I've become VERY DISGUSTED WITH PRIME VIDEO LATELY!! Out of the last 5 videos I've watched, 3 that I didn't finish watching became unavailable to me the VERY NEXT DAY!! If Amazon Prime Video sent out a notice saying I had to watch the whole video in one day, they didn't tell me. So all 3 movies I watched about 2/3 of the way through, fully believing I could watch the ending the next day. Oh no! 2 of the videos were NO LONGER INCLUDED ON PRIME THE VERY NEXT DAY!! The 3rd video was UNAVAILABLE! Hey, Amazon, that's not RIGHT TO DO! These were all either really old movies from the '90's or kind of jerky movies that the Sci-Fy channel used to show. That's another thing about Prime Videos-no current or recently current movies. That doesn't bother me, but when they are starting to shut off my access to the ends of movies, THAT ISNT RIGHT!

As for Amazon as a whole, I use it to buy almost everything. I recommend that you always look to make sure each purchase is "Fulfilled by Amazon" before you buy it. I made a couple purchases that weren't all that great, and Amazon made sure I got a refund. Quickly, too. There are many sponsored items now, and most sellers are ethical and decent. But once in a while, you get a bad product, and if it's fulfilled by Amazon, Amazon stands behind it. (Except maybe now, for Prime Videos).

Tip for consumers: This second review of Amazon will replace my original 5-Star review. Amazon is my favorite online shopping site for everything from deodorant to ironing board covers and definitely for books, book, and books!! I've never and a problem with Amazon. I still haven't had a problem with Amazon. However, I recently received a shipment of about 6 items, all from sellers who had their products fulfilled by Amazon, so my 2nd review URGES ALL OF YOU TO MAKE SURE that when you buy from other sellers, make

This is an addendum to what I wrote earlier about the Phising experience I recently had. I NEVER EVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH PHISING ON APPLE, NOR DID I EVER GET BILLED FOR ADDING COINS TO GAMES I HAVE UNTIL APPLE MADE ME CHANGE MY PASSWORD! I don't know why this is, but since I changed my Apple PW a couple weeks ago, I had 6-7 Phising episodes for Pandora. We had to get a new credit card!! Recently, I've been charged for purchases of coins from Toon Blast. I made a couple purchases, but others I did NOT MAKE!!! I am going to delete ALL GAMES from Apple, and I changed my PW. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON!! I sent an email to the HELP department, so I will update you about what happens.

I am not critiquing APPLE, but I am WARNING EVERYONE to be sure to examine ALL your emails or text messages for fraudulent receipts from Apple for items you haven't purchased!! Today I noticed a string of 7 Apple receipts for Pandora, at a (monthly) cost of $102.85. Every order number was different.
All emails came from "Apple" no-reply-email. I replied back to this address but none went through.
I contacted Apple to give them all of these Order ID's so they could investigate.
And, as those of you who have been hacked or phished on before, another credit card has to be replaced!!!
Hacking and Phishing is OUT OF CONTROL, so what I am encouraging is that you look at your Credit Card charges on a frequent basis, and that you call Apple to let them know when fraud has occurred.

I'm a retired RN who worked in Oncology and Infection Control, among many other areas, and to keep somewhat current in the areas of my interest, Medscape is the site to read. You do need to register with Medscape, but the service is free. The news in healthcare today is overwhelming. Medscape enables you to choose your areas of interest and sends you articles and information in those specific areas. You can get news about new protocols, current best practices, articles, and viewpoints. Most articles have a comment section, and sometimes you can learn even more from what other readers share. Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, healthcare administrators and other healthcare personnel are among the readers and responders. Medscape is a rich resource, full of the latest in medical and general healthcare. As a nurse, I also get Medscape Nurses, which obviously has information specific to nursing. Medscape also has a feature where short quizzes are given in an enormous range of topics, like kidney disease, acne, knee problems and on to almost infinity. These are not only fun to test your knowledge, but great information is available regarding the correct answers. If you want to keep up with healthcare, whether you are working in that field or not, please try Medscape!

I am only reviewing the App Store/iTunes Game, "Jewel Crush, Match 3". I wish there were separate categories on Sitejabber for these huge sites with multiple functions, like the App Store. I've played and enjoyed Jewel Crush for some months now. At one point, I was able to become a VIP member for $2.99 a week. This has numerous benefits. However, now I'm done with the highest level of this game, and I'm trying to stop VIP membership. The site says you can stop it by entering your cancellation in the site. THERE IS NO SITE ON WHICH I CAN CANCEL!!! When i look up options or ask questions, IT IS IN CHINESE!!
I don't read, speak or understand CHINESE!! So it looks as if, unless someone contacts me because i submitted a complaint, for the rest of my life AND BEYOND, I will be charged $2.99 a week for a game i stopped playing because I got as far as I can.
I believe this is a breach of contract and fraud. And it should be easier to contact these game sites without having to first learn HOW TO WRITE CHINESE!!!

Zillow

Zillow

After living in northern CA for over 30 years, my husband and I are planning to move back to Wisconsin, our home state. Our move is totally to be near family; it DEFINITELY NOT is because we enjoy WI's weather, humidity, bugs, snakes, etc. With us living so far away, Zillow is a good tool to use to help us find our new home. One thing I must mention is that WE ALREADY HAVE A REALTOR in WI, and we don't plan to use anyone listing a particular home. Along that line, PLEASE DO NOT PRESS THE BUTTON that says "I'm interested in this home" because you will receive many unwanted phone calls from agents!! Otherwise, Zillow.com is a good tool to use to get an idea of a home you want. Zillow gives information on Facts and Features, Year Built, Square Footage, Room Sizes, Heating and Cooling (Central air is a MUST!), acreage, Taxes, price per square foot, schools, and much more. There is also a "Zestimate" that can tell you if the home is priced too high or too low. Zillow also gives "how many days" the home has been listed on Zillow, in addition to a history of the home's price increases or decreases or "taken off the market", which can help one ascertain whether a lower price might be accepted by the seller.
The negatives of Zillow are that pictures they show of the homes may be limited, and that if you don't already have a realtor, you take a chance on whoever is listing the home. Since we were already from WI, we have a realtor we know and trust.
But when you live thousands of miles from wherever you are planning to move, Zillow is a great site for you to get an idea of what is out there and how much it costs.

eBags

eBags

2/9/18

Unlike some of the reviews, I've always been satisfied with e-Bags shipments. I first came upon e-Bags from an ad somewhere. I ordered a large purse because I was flying to WI and needed something that could carry my iPad (regular sized), my novel, and all my other numerous things. This first purse was leather, very supple and lovely. However, the inside material shredded and came apart within a year and a half, so even though the outside still looks perfect, the inside is done for. It's down to the leather! The second purse I bought within the past 6 months also has the inside shredding. It was a different brand from the first purse-leather, but much harder, less supple leather. I still, just tonight, ordered a third purse for everyday use. It's not leather and I hope the inside will stay intact. All of this previous review tells the bad side of eBags.
The good side is that there are huge numbers of purses, wallets, carry-on bags, luggage, etc. on this site. Most of the purses are made for security as you travel, with reinforcement so that thieves can't cut the purse's strap away from you. There is also protection for you money and credit cards, as I believe there is some device that can scan your credit cards while they are in your purse!
You also get good coupons and discounts. You get money points for everything you buy. Many of the original prices are very economic, but with the money points from my previous purchases, I saved $10 on my purchase tonight.
So the only complaint I have, and it's a significant one, is that the material used in the inside compartments of the purses IS NOT LONG LASTING AT ALL!!! It shreds and comes apart. I have purses from 20-30 years ago, not from eBags, and the interior looks almost as good as new. EBags needs to make sure they change this bad problem.
Thank you.

Bath & Body Works

Bath & Body Works

i love the BBW foaming hand soaps, but I'm somewhat disabled, so it's hard for me to go to the store in the mall and haul out 15 lbs of products! The online site has a far better selection, and there is often a coupon online (or they include one in your box when you purchase online). Along with the foaming hand soaps, there are often good sales for the Wallflower scents and the lotions. The products come usually within a week. I DO recommend this site.

Kohl's

Kohl's

1/3/17

Unfortunately, I have gained ALOT of weight this last 15 months and had to shop to buy bigger jeans and tops. I went to a couple well-known retail department stores, only to find that the jeans were arranged by Brand, and thus were scattered ALL OVER THE STORES!! I'm disabled, so this was tough on me, and I never found one pair that fit. I then got a coupon to Kohls, a store close to my home that also has a website. I easily purchased 4 pairs of jeans and 4 tops for an unbelievably low price! Plus I got Kohl's dollars to use for this month. And now that I know the sizes that fit me from my store purchases, I can look online to buy the same brand clothes that may not be available anymore at the store. KOHL'S WAS SUCH A BARGAIN FOR CLOTHES I LIKED, in addition to all the coupons and benefits. The reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that some things I needed were not available. For example, as hard as I looked, I could not find tights. The purses were mainly not leather, and the shoe selection wasn't great. But for jeans and tops, Kohl's was wonderful!!

Amazon Kindle

Amazon Kindle

6/13/18

I AM NOT REVIEWING KINDLE; I am reviewing kindle unlimited. Amazon gave me a one month free trial of Kindle Unlimited, which provides certain books to read on-line for no cost. If I do not cancel, I will be charged $9.99 a month to continue Kindle Unlimited. I will DEFINITELY CANCEL at the end of this month, if not before. The books available on Kindle Unlimited are these categories: Cookbooks, these horrible Harlequin-type romances, with the sleazy covers of a buff man without a shirt who is embracing a fainting, heavily bosomed woman, books that you may not ever want to buy to read, and the first book of a series of books that will end up costing you a lot of money if you get interested. It was also hard for me to go to Amazon and find out which books were Amazon Unlimited-i had to go through pages and pages on an older iPad which is slow. Kindle itself is great, but I couldn't find enough books I was interested enough to read, using Kindle Unlimited. It is CERTAINLY NOT worth $9.99 a month to continue, unless you love Harlequin-type romances. I don't like them. My opinion.

Bed Bath & Beyond

Bed Bath & Beyond

1/3/17

My husband and I often use Bed, Bath, and Beyond for our household, linen, towels, bedroom needs, and beyond because for the small size of our nearby store, it has most of the products we need. The other great thing about BB&B is that they provide wonderful coupons both in the paper or magazines and especially online. From our experience, even though the coupons have expiration dates, even expired coupons are good to use. Amd we are able to use more than one coupon for a purchase of several items. This definitely is our go-to store for household goods of so many different types, you WILL BE pleasantly surprised.

if you've read some of my prior reviews, I'm in my early 60's; so what I might like would be dreadful for younger women. I know, because I was young once. JCP is my Go-To store for my clothes. Their prices are very reasonable, and JCP has a wide selection of clothes for different age groups and sizes. I'm on a fixed income now, so getting inexpensive clothes, at a moderate price is essential for me now. I don't buy shoes there, because I can't find the kind of shoes at the quality level I like-shoes should last a long time, so I'll buy elsewhere. JCP has a decent return policy, too. I buy dresses, jeans, T-shirts, casual and dressy shirts/tops, underwear, and sleepwear there. What more can I say-I've gone overboard already! Thank you!

Aetna

Aetna

i am disabled and on Medicare because of disability, even though I'm "only 63". I have to purchase supplementals for doctors and hospitals. I have a Medicare Advisor who recommended Aetna for Plan F. All Plan F's apparently have to cover the same things if it supplements Medicare, so monthly supplement cost is the main consideration. Aetna was, last year, and IS this year the most cost-efficient for someone like me. In 2015, I had shoulder surgery and a 5-day hospital admission, products for sleep apnea, a bunch of specialist appointments, and more. All costs were covered by Medicare and Aetna. No supplementals are cheap!!! But Aetna is considered "good insurance" by my doctors.

I've been an RN, BSN for 40 years, although I've been disabled for several years. (I still keep my license active and keep up with nursing and medicine.) I have a very complicated endocrine disease and am going through many tests under the guidance of a wonderful Endocrinologist-this service states it is not in the business of providing diagnoses. My disease is not yet established, so I look up the meaning of my lab results online. THIS SITE IS THE MOST HELPFUL EVER!! You can ask questions about your lab tests, and a certified clinical lab specialist will answer them-FOR FREE. My answer was 2 1/2 pages long, detailed but easy to understand (you may want to mention you don't know much about medicine, if you don't). It gave me more in-depth information on which test results could indicate which gland(s) were/was affected (without giving me a diagnosis, which is beyond this site's legal
function, and PAm gave me information on why some of my. Labs may not be valid because of medications I took or foods I ate, while preparing for the test. Anyone with an Endocrine disorder knows how totally complicating it is, but she gave me ALOT of good ideas and suggestions, all under the care of my physician. TRY THIS SITE-I'm sure it will be BEYOND YOUR EXPECTATIONS!

I'm in my early 60's, and I believe that most of the clothing items are made for younger women. On the other hand, I get impatient browsing through racks of tightly stacked clothes. However, for things like hair care, spa and bath items, facial care, soaps, towels, and other linens, I have found some excellent deals on expensive, brand name items. At the store nearby, one thing I ALWAYS do is to make sure that the seals on the packages have NOT been broken, the lipsticks and makeups have NOT been used, and that nothing has been opened. You have to be careful about things like that. I LOVE TJ MAXX for toiletries and home products. I always spend way too much. Just be careful about the things I've mentioned, and I know you will love TJ MAXX, too.
Thank you!

Jewelry.com

Jewelry

4/3/18

I happened upon jewelry.com when I was looking for a garnet ring in a silver setting for my sister. I spent probably 2 hours looking through this site. There is SO MUCH to look at, since they sell jewelry of all kinds for men and women, from rings to earrings, to pendants, necklaces, and bracelets and more. Jewelry.com has high-priced gems, moderate priced ones, and a great selection of very inexpensive jewelry, many of which are semi-precious stones. They also sell crystal jewelry, and they tell whether the item is crystal or a real stone. Personally, I would never buy something for thousands of dollars on an online site, but the quantity of less expensive items is huge. I've purchased the garnet ring for my sister, and for the price, it was very nice. I also bought a citrine ring for myself, and the stones were beautiful. Just today I bought a blue topaz 4 3/8 carat ring for myself for less than $40, including both tax and S&H. I have a nice collection of high-priced jewelry that my husband has gifted me with, but when I'm out about town (in a city where once a man was killed for his gold chain!), I wear my cheap but nice-looking jewelry. I've received many compliments on rings that cost less than $50. I had to contact customer service once, and they replied quickly. (It wasn't because of a problem with their jewelry). I recommend jewelry.com.

Scamadvisor.com

Scamadvisor.com

3/26/19

I just came upon this website as I was looking up scams. It seems that this website uses Alexa somehow to determine whether a site is a scam or a legitimate business. Scam advisor then gives the business a percentage indicating its trustworthiness or its "scammyness". I looked up a business that I believe takes advantage of people, including me, by not telling us upfront that whatever we buy, even if we think we buy only one bottle of supplements, we are put on autoshipping. This company was given a high percentage of trustworthiness. There are no actual customer reviews documented of the sites I looked up. That doesn't mean there aren't actual customer reviews; it just means I didn't find any. The website also has articles on how to avoid being scammed and what to do if you have been.
I believe it may be a new website.
I'm interested if anyone else has seen this website-what are your impressions of it?

HelloFresh

HelloFresh

2/21/19

Hello Fresh is a service that delivers the ingredients for meals you select. They had a special price for 4 weeks, so I thought I would try it so my husband and I could cook together. Hahaha! He didn't get into it at all.
To explain how it works, a customer can choose the basic plan, a veggie plan or a family plan for however many meals a week you want for however many people you want to feed. I chose 2 meals a week for 2 people, and after the first week, it came up to about $27+ dollars a week, on the special. They send all the ingredients to your home, along with directions on exactly how to make each meal. Every meal was DELICIOUS.
I do NOT like to cook. It's time consuming and messy.
I ended up cancelling hellofresh because it was just too much work to make the meals.
However, their recipes gave me great ideas that I can simplify and use in the future.
And I have to say that all the deliveries came on time, even though i now live outside a small town in Wisconsin, and the winter here has been brutal!
I may sometime get back with HelloFresh and just order 2 meals for 2 people per month. They have very flexible plans. I maybe can handle complex meals twice a month.
But remember, i don't like to cook, and haven't done much cooking, so what's complicated for me may be simple for you.
It was easy to cancel, which I appreciated.
So I believe they are a good company, but it's just too much work for someone who hates to cook.

Sutter Health

Sutter Health

12/30/17

Although I worked for a major HMO in California for 20 years, as soon as I could, I changed my medical care to Sutter. I have been very happy with my doctors and the care I receive for my major health problems. One thing I love about Sutter is their "myhealthcareonline" computer system which allows me to make or cancel appointments, look up my lab and Xray results, and email my doctors. I have found that trying to contact doctors who are now Sutter-affiliated is an exercise in futility!! I never could get in touch with them, or if I faxed something, it would go into my chart, with no answer until I saw the doctor again-which might be months later! My Sutter doctors and their staff answer me very quickly. As an RN, I am very interested in viewing my own results. Many doctor's staff, if they call at all to tell you the results of your lab or radiology tests, simply say, "They are normal" or not. That isn't good enough for me; I want to see them for myself. I should also put this review under "Myhealthonline". If you are a Sutter member, PLEASE make sure you sign up for "myhealthonline" in order to get the full benefits of this great program.

AmazonPrime

AmazonPrime

12/30/17

I AM REVIEWING AMAZON'S PRIME PANTRY, a relatively new feature for Prime members, charges a flat shipping rate of $5.99 for their boxes. I ordered a small item, analgesic oral gel, which was listed as an Amazon Prime Pantry item. Amazon "told" me to add other items to fill the $5.99 box. I didn't pay much attention to that, never having used Amazon Prime Pantry before. When I went to check out, this gel would've cost me its price plus the $5.99 shipping fee, even though I'm a Prime member. Fortunately, I was able to delete the gel and avoid the additional $5.99 fee. I'm confused about Amazon Prime Pantry. What is part of this program and what isn't? I recently ordered many food products, but they weren't part of the Prime Pantry. They got shipped "free" because I'm a Prime member. Yet, this oral analgesic gel was a Prime Pantry item, even though other of the same gels aren't. I'm just advising people that if something is part of the Amazon Prime Pantry, you will pay an additional $5.99 shipping fee. So you better fill your pantry box to make the additional fee worth it. Otherwise, find another product that will get shipped "free" as part of your Prime membership.
