    My initial reaction was 'Nice!' Debadoo returns. But the more I read the sadder I got. Deb thanks so much for taking the time to let us know about Johnny. He's one of the originals around here and loved my many. He'll certainly be in our prayers and thoughts. And please, if you can, keep us updated when you hear anything.

    Hey Debadoo! It's great to hear from you, but wish it wasn't under these circumstances. Thank you so much for letting us know about Iffy. No wonder he hasn't posted in so long. I agree with others here, please let him know that he and Patty are in our prayers. He's a tough one so I'm hoping he'll heal faster than they expect.

    Thanks so much Uncle. For some reason the fridge stopped making that awful noise - we have no idea why. If it hadn't I would have been at the Best Buy store raising a stink long before now. We've been busy and won't be home tomorrow but the first chance I get I'm going over there to complain to a manager. Whatever the outcome is I will let corporate know what happened. This is unacceptable!

    Just a clue: I have noticed that refrigerators and washing machines can acquire a horrible vibration if they are a little out of level. I'm sure there are other reasons, but this might be what has been going on.

    You're right, but I don't think that's the problem here. When you open the door and look at the back wall there is a unit there that was all iced up inside. The guy removed that and replaced it when he was here a couple weeks ago. There's a fan blade inside that was hitting the ice which made all the noise.

    Might be the same problem, then, and not de-icing properly.

    Thought they carefully leveled it when it was installed, but worth checking out to make sure that hasn't changed. Or maybe we had defective bubbles in the level. Lately it seems that would be our luck.

    Ours failed in that way a couple years back. In our case, the freezer (bottom drawer) had been inadvertently left open an inch or so, and the system couldn't keep up with the defrost, locking up the fan which is supposed to circulate the cold air. Freezer was still cold, fridge portion not. Tech defrosted all with a heat gun (or hair dryer ;) ), replaced the board and all was well.

    He never checked for level, so I'm not sure how critical that is.

    omgggggggggg I hate this computer! I keep typing and suddenly it highlights and deletes it all in a nano second! Anywayyyyyyyyy so no giant multiquote, y'all were spared that. I will certainly pass on the well wishes to his family, and will definitely bring updates to y'all when there are any. I did talk to Susan on the phone a bit ago. They are 1.5 to 2 hrs from Bradenton so are hoping in a week or so when their company leaves that they'll be able to go visit him.

    And thank you so much for the love and saying you've missed me, that really means a lot to me. I miss y'all too and think of y'all a lot. I hated having to come back on with that kind of news, but knew y'all would be wondering about him. I figured he was still on pretty much everyday before this happened. He is so loved here, and loves y'all back so much!

    And a couple of wahoooooooooooooooooooooo's!!! Congrats Misswish!!! (I need a new avatar) lol and Cathy, I saw that Geordie got a championship!! WTG!!! I was watching the Westminster show and thinking of you and Geordie! That Terv was nowhere near as purdy as he is!!

    I may just take you up on your link. I went to Best Buy today and told the guy there why I was upset. He checked with his manager and said that Geek Squad is separate from Best Buy and I would have to call the 800 number for Geek Squad and ask for their manager. Best Buy sold the service contract. So much for that golden piece of incentive to buy from them. I told him what I thought of that and that I would never buy appliances from BB ever again if this is the kind of service they provide. I'm going to call Geek Squad on Monday and lodge a complaint and then may also contact people on that link.

    GOOD for "You" . . . However, did Ya' talk to the store manager - not service supervisor or manager . . . Usually they will take care of this type of situation . . . If not then YES - contact corporation office . . . AND - I would strongly suggest "telling" your story on their social media - major companies usually respond in a more positive way . . . Another thing to consider is asking that they cancel the "Geek Squad" service contract if they aren't going to up-hold their end of the deal and demand a refund . . . If they don't then report them to BBB (both Best Buy & Geek Squad) and if you purchase the appliance using a credit card ask them (the CC Company) to get involved and refund your money for the cancelled contract, especially if they refuse . . . Most CC will help and refund the money to you . . . While it may take a little effort, it's worth it if just for principle only . . . Just an Idea and Thought . . . ;)

    OH BTW: Keep us updated . . . :D

    Good morning. It's chilly, but pleasant here at 27 degrees. It's not raining!

    The guys are getting together for their annual Daytona party (complete with a standing rib roast lunch!) so the women are getting together separately. No reason we can't have fun too! We're having a smorgasbord!

    I don't know which manager he spoke to and actually I don't care. The bottom line is they wouldn't deal with it. Depending on what I find out when I call Geek Squad on Monday I may light up social media. That's a good idea to look into cancelling the service contract, but I think we're approaching the end of it anyway. Wouldn't you know it though, the fridge has not made that noise again.

    Thank you so much for letting us know. I had a bad feeling something was up with him. I pray he recovers completely.

    As for you, is there no way to make using a computer easier?

    I'm too anxious right now to talk much. I have one of those invasive doctor's appointments tomorrow. I'll be more talkative after that's over.
