Okay, so went shopping and charged the purchase, when I got home looked at the receipt and it was for 3X what I had bought. Went back and talked to the manger and we straightened it out, seems they put the last 4 numbers of the CC in and the cashier was treating it like a debit card so it thought that was the amount, honest mistake but it would have cost me money if I didn't catch it.

I don’t need your attitude thanks, I have one of my own!

If you shop at Von's and you use your club card along with the online thing, you need to check your receipt, item by item. We have bought items and they were not charged the sale price. No problem when you bring back your receipt and show the items mis-priced, they will refund the difference. Just beware and ALWAYS check your receipt.

Sort of on the same subject: I just re-upped my verizon cell phone, with "free" phones after a mail-in rebate. I asked the salesman, just out of curiosity, what percentage of people actually go through and fill out the tedious paperwork required to reeive the rebate. He told me 75% do NOT file for a rebate. Very surprised at that number. 50 bucks is 50 bucks. No wonder they "offer" rebates.

Geezer - They (Verizon) send out a Visa/Citi rebate/debit card. I got mine for $50 in Jan.

Was heading west on South Dr or took Baldwin North. Lost track when I got binoculars and phone, at least the sun is out.
We had a 59.3 mph gust late last night night, just under an inch of snow. Hard to tell between drifts and wind.

It was where my Dad taught me how to fish with 2 lb. test. Great memories, except all the untangling.

I can only imagine how spooky it would sound at night, with the rocks tumbling into the fresh water.

On the way to the lake there is a rocket skin with NASA painted on it. Prob. from a movie scene. I think one of the state's brown trout records came fom there.

The res. itself is about a qurter mile back from parking. It is a large res. with mostly 50 degree incline of rocks heading to the water. While there, the wind blows rocks into the water.

Pleasant valley res. is one of the premier fisheries in Ca. Fished it many times with close friends. I say close because you have to rely on one another.
