If you freeze your credit, there is no credit to monitor. Need credit? Unfreeze it instantly and refreeze when done.

I'll take the cash if there is any left...lol.

I took the $125 for me and my wife plus $25 each for the hour it took to freeze our credit on all three major credit reporters plus ChexSystems which is for the banking stuff. I froze our credit right after the breach in 2017 so and I have the documents.

I have had free credit monitoring for years now as my student info from OSU was breached as well as my employment info where I work. They all offered monitoring after that. Somewhere in between I think I was breached as well. That is why I just decided to freeze all my credit.

My university hires custodians but with the cuts, they are few and far between. Most southern state universities do this while the northern ones contract it out.

I take my trash out, vacuum, and dust my office which is fine with me but not having an office phone rubs me the wrong way for some reason. That and they turn the heat and air off in the evenings/weekends during winter and summer. I do most of my work off hours and alternate between roasting and freezing depending on the weather....ha.

I get the profs point. I am a professor and we have been cut to the bone.

What really bothers me is not the athletic departments and their support/facilities but rather the marketing of universities by administrators and state leaders as 'bleeding edge' or the place to learn new and exciting things while support withers away and the facilities suffer. You should see my office and building...lol. It is what it is but major companies such as google, facebook, microsoft etc are the ones who are at the bleeding edge (at least in my field). Not the universities.

Nick and Joey got 4th out of 50 teams. Joey is pretty good especially when you consider the talent he went up against. Some of the best players in the world were competing and Joey held his own.

True story. Short version. My sister was having open heart surgery some time in the early 70s, I think. John just happened to be having knee surgery at the same time at the university hospital in Columbus. I remember him coming to visit my sister along with a bunch of media people. He stayed for about an hour talking to my sister. I will never forget it. He is the reason I became a Celtics fan. RIP big man.

Good luck my friend. I think there has been a ton of improvements since I went through all that crap. There is a digital method that is similar to change detection in remotely sensed imagery that they now use for detecting any change in the optic nerve and region. I was messing around with that technology in late 90s. It was a big deal then, but commonplace now.

I took a personal finance course. Don't remember the name of the course but I still use the stuff I learned back in the early 90s. Basic life finance stuff goes a long way into the future.

Have you gone through the pressure test and monitoring stuff? I was told I had the disease but after a few years was then told I was born with a high cup to disc ratio. I would definitely get a second opinion as the eye drops have side effects. I think the drops are the best option but I am not an ophthalmologist.

I was given this framed print by a couple. My wife and I used to babysit their child in Dublin while we both were undergraduates in the early 90s. We became friends. Unfortunately the husband was diagnosed with a rare cancer and died almost immediately and we lost track of the wife. She was never the same. The print is dated 1985.

I was just curious of the story behind the print but have come up with very little info.

Following up Deacbuck...

I have zero pain now, and am working on flexibility and strength. Just wanted to give you an example of a back surgery that worked. The internet and experiences of others are full of horror stories but my experience is the exact opposite. I wish I had done it years ago but, then again, maybe advances have improved outcome over those years.

Let us know where you are at with your back issues!

I've been to Charleston more times than I can count as I live a short distance away.

For the beach, we go to Folly Beach on James Island. We always stay at Tides, Folly Beach. https://www.tidesfollybeach.com/ It is right on the ocean.

Beyond what has already been mentioned, there is a tea farm there that is fun to visit. The Battery and the strip down town are good to see as is the Citadel. You can walk around the College as well and check out the sights and homes.

A must if you like barbecue is Lewis Barbecue. You won't be disappointed. https://lewisbarbecue.com/
