Seriously. I had a relative with a similar complaint. It turned out to be cancer that had metastasized to the bone. OP, there is a reason for pain. Your body is telling you something.

I don't know if the parents are snobby but I do know that it isn't worth applying if you do not have not just one but multiple letters of recommendation from current families. I think they should keep the application process private and not go through the motions of pretending other people have a fair shot. I am sure it is a perfectly nice school for the children that attend and I didn't mind the basement space when I toured though in retrospect I am glad we ended up at a school that has a beautiful play space outside.

Mostly people can't stand how they do admissions- emphasizing recommendations/connections over any genuine appraisal of the child or family. Half the applicants dont even get interviews. Quasi for-profit entity getting to borrow the church's name and operate an exclusive club is sick. Other complaints are beholder-specific: uniforms, basement. I imagine it's a fine school if you actually get in and don't mind inbreeding within Carnegie Hill. [ Reply | More ]

np. think hard. I divorced my ex after I found out he was having an affair. I had told him how important it was to me that he never cheat on me (my father was a big cheater) and I also could not get past it when he did it anyway. He was not a bad father, never abused me, was a good provider - but I drew the hard line and thought I was showing my daughters that they don't have to tolerate cheating, ever. Several years later I have not met anyone else, my life is not much better, just lonelier. I'm very lucky in that my ex continues to pay all my bills and is a fantastic dad to our daughters, who love him and in the end have no feelings one way or the other about his cheating. On the other hand, at least one of them has blamed me and told me I can't say it's OK to make mistakes and then kick dad out when he makes one. I'm kind of sorry I moved so quickly. Maybe in your case it is different. [ Reply | More ]

Construction attorney here and yes, you can just file a lien at any time. Has to be within a certain time period from the last date of the work. The foreclosure process is what takes a long time.

Lawyer here. A contractor or materialman can file a lien on property that he has worked on, the theory being that he has improved the value of the property. If he did not work on your property, he cannot put a mechanic's lien on your property. He can sue you and, if he gets a judgment, then the judgment is a lien on your property, but you are entitled to notice and the opportunity to defend yourself. [ Reply | More ]

would get a lawyer to respond and detail what you just said.

thought about this some more. If you do not want to hire a lawyer, just write a letter, send certified mail, that states that: 1. you have received a bill from his contractor; 2. you did not hire this contractor nor have any prior discussion with him; 3. the neighbor has not informed you that there was damage in a timely way; 4. that you have seen no evidence of damage and have seen no photos or other proof of damage. Then say that you are insured (I hope you are) and say that if the neighbor would like to pursue the matter, he should contact his own insurance company and that the insurance companies can work out the issue.
