Before purchasing look at the recreation news every Thursday. see what clubs you will be joining and determine how far away you are willing to travel day and night to get to them. No 1 reason we moved in was for all the clubs and activities, so dont move to far from what u plan on participating in regularly

Remember, always remember, you can not turn left from the right lane at a traffic circle. If you are going left you will always need to be in the left lane. Save you some anger and embarrassment.

I so agree with not bringing your furniture. I had a hard time leaving my Thomasville Collector Cherry Furniture. I knew it was way to heavy and presented a high monetary move expensive... My issue was purely getting over the emotional attachment. I did leave it and I am so very glad I did. I purchased lighter furniture in a coastal look. After 4 months I went into Bargains & treasures, Oxford Fl, and saw many of my pieces of furniture listed for $35 to $150 for sale second hand. WOW... if I would have brought it and know I would not have been happy I couldn't have even sold it for pennies on the dollar. So glad I didn't invest on moving it.

Default Oh that deep cleaning scam

Hello all
You make an appointment to take advantage of the free dental cleaning and x-rays in your medicare plan
you sit in a chair and wait for two hours only to be given an estimate for work you absolutely have to have done for $1700.

no thank you I was born at night but it wasn’t last night

I’m so happy to hear that there are honest ones in the villages
Thanks for the thread

QUOTE=graciegirl;641772]One of the things that new villagers don't do is to find a doctor and have their records transferred. It just isn't on your mind to do when you are not sick.

But many can tell you that health emergencies can occur at any time and it helps to have someone in possession of your records.

Do not ask me who to choose for a doctor. Ours is just o.k..Our dentist is so good that I hate to share.

O.K. Drs. Kathleen Williams and her partner at Palm Dental on 466 across from Crispers and next to Lang Eye. You owe me big time. I hope they don't get any busier than they are.

BE VERY CAREFUL of dentists. This is the first time I have lived in a place where they will scam you. There are a lot of unethical ones and dental hygienists too who want to deep clean you for over a thousand dollars.[/QUOTE]

Before stepping of the kerb to execise 'you right of way' just check that there is not a car coming at 30mph.
Saves such a lot of paperwork, police and medics time, etc.!

We found the best water and lawn and any other person we needed, were NOT the ones that came banging on the door. Check out crimes against seniors they have a list of the good and bad. Wait at least 3 months for landscaping changes. When life is back to normal the master gardeners have time times when you can meet at the library building for advice.
