A.C. Bust

Hello All, Well here's the story back from Atlantic City. Some parts were a bust some pretty decent. . First I paid for my first night in Cesar's Hotel $75 dollars the rest of my stay which was 2 extra nights were complimentary. First off  I get to  my room did not have an ocean view as I requested. I had to go back down stairs and fight with them for a room with a view. Then I get to my new  room it was ok, nothing great. I did get my ocean view.  Then I checked my bed like always and  my bed sheets they had a stain  on them. Heck No!!! Hello  housekeeping come and get this nasty sheet off my bed.
Once housekeeping came then I tried to use the coffee maker it's broke. Once again Hello Housekeeping  bring me a new coffee maker. See how the vacations going so far?

Now on to the Hard Rock Casino it's a new one in Atlantic City. All I can say is that I hear them. The music was so loud in the place you could go deaf. They did have good waitress service but the drinks tasted liked flavored water without the liquor. The food was reasonable in price but cold and tasteless. They were not giving you any money away through their slot machines . So I left.

The only casino that showed me some love was Tropicana they gave me $75 in ShopRite gift cards. I won $250 bucks. They gave me a free magic show and I got $6 off my Hooters wings. I love the wings at hooters they are so good.

Overall I did get to the beach, the weather was nice and I visited family. A good vacation without some of the trouble spots to me. So what do you think?

P.S. I got $25 off my room charge so that was a good thing. Since we  complained  we had a right to  I think they just wanted us to shut-up so they paid us to. Works for me.

Atlantic City

Hello all How Are you today?

Well here's the story for the week. So far it's been a quite week for me which is a good thing. I am heading out to Atlantic City this weekend. With surgery and doctors  all this month. I needed a quick get away to the beach and Atlantic City is it for me. Ok, I confess I want to see the two new casinos the Hard Rock and  I forget the other one that opened up in Atlantic City recently. I want to see   what these new casinos look like inside.  Maybe they will be paying you a little something to. Wishful thinking right. At least I hope they have good and cheap restaurants. Because the rest of the casinos on the board walk are  taking your money not giving you  anything and their restaurants suck..
I remember a time way way way back when  I use to get about $50 in food vouchers and $100 worth of free play. Not anymore I am lucky if they give me free rooms. Which this time I have to pay for my stay Sunday night at a coat of $70 bucks. The rest of the week I am staying until Wednesday is complimentary. I know $70 bucks is a lot especially when I use to get that same night free. But I feel  sometimes you have to bite the bullet if you want to do something. Besides my mother lives down there so the trip is also to visit her for a couple of days.
Overall I just need a cheap getaway and for now Atlantic City is it. What do you think?

Hello all well here's the story for today. This week I got a letter from my medical insurance company asking me if  I  had a secondary insurance company. You see I had surgery 3 weeks ago and I guess the insurance company wants to know if they have to pay the whole hospital bill. The letter stated that I had 15 days to respond if I did not respond in 15 days then they would not pay my hospital bill. I mailed  my response that letter the same day I got it. I was not playing when it comes to someone paying my medical bills.  Mind you I  only stayed 6  hours in the hospital not overnight like I was suppose to. Plus I already gave them $200 toward the operation when I did my Pr-operation tests.
After I read that letter I got worried. what if the insurance company tries to tell me that I have to pay the whole hospital bill. I can't imagine what that will cost. You know people can and do go bankrupt without of control hospital bills. My partner says not to worry the insurance company will pay something. I least I hope so. If not I will be paying the hospital what I can afford which will be $5-10 a month. I am not working so they can't expect that much from me can they?
What do you think?

My Tenant

 Hello all well here's the story for the week. I am kinda sad because my Tenant which is very good and she has a good spirit. Which is rare in people told me that by October she might be moving. I hate the thought of going through the process of getting somebody new that I might or might not have problems with. This tenant and her family are so nice. I don't have any problems with them and she pays on time. She keeps the place neat and clean. Her and her  family are just nice people. She will be missed by me. I have had some crazy and bad tenants in the time that I became a landlord.  My first tenant I felt sorry for her and I let her rent from me. Big mistake. Her rent was always late, she called me all the time for the simplest stuff. Also one time my basement in the rental house got flooded. Me and my partner ran over there. We stayed in the basement cleaning up the water for 4 hours. The tenant did not help and I personally knew her. She had been living in the neighborhood  when I was living in the house.

The house when she left was a wreck It smelled of  piss and  incense . The refrigerator was black with mold inside and she broke my toilet among other things.  I had to pay a lot of money to have it  my house cleaned up  and repaired. Then  she skipped out on last months rent that she owed. I said never again. The tenants after that were always angry. They  never payed on time and demanded that I be there at their beck and call when something in the house broke. Needless to say It took me two years with them back and forth in court because of the security deposit. I was glad to get rid of them 

Now this last tenant again I will miss this family, I am hoping she stays another year. She's the only good tenant that I have and I need her and her family to stay. I know I sound  selfish but when you got something good you want to keep it. So what do you think?

Health Cost

Hello all, well here's the story for the week, I am talking about a personal situating  when it comes to health care. I was into the hospital this past week. I had to have surgery  for something. The hospital was suppose to keep me overnight, but they have a policy that they only keep you for 6 hours and then send you home. The reason for that is  the insurance companies will not pay for overnight stays in the hospital anymore unless it an emergency. Anyway being a cheapskate that I am  and proud of it to. When I was introduced to the doctors that would do my surgery . The first thing I asked them was do they take my insurance because I did not want any extra medical bills coming my way. Was I wrong to ask them that since they were about to open a sista up in the operating room?
I also told the  nurses that took care of me don't give me any medication that is not covered under my insurance plan. Was I being to cheap with my health? I realized that if it's was not for my partner having good insurance I would be  screwed when it came to my medical expenses. That's why I wanted to tell you that you need  good medical insurance and extra money on the side for medications and co pays. I still have to pay co- pays when I go to the doctors but I am ok with that has long as the insurance company covers the rest. And if you have not notice  Heath Care is expensive

So no matter what insurance you have make sure you set some money aside extra for the unexpected medical cost that insurance companies don't pay for. So what do you think?
