    trichardson0621, we recently got a Brother MFC-L2700DW and we like it a lot.

    Dr D - thanks for posting the code DR D! I was out and about and did not see it.

    trichardson0621 - I have a Brother MFC-7840W (not the newest model available) and we really like it. Brother printers tend to be recommended highly.

    ascherer - on Time Warner it is channel 8 (WRAZ).

    readingtou - those are good deals! Mine had the scrubbing pads and store brand reclosable zipper bags (for only .25 and I ran out this weekend so the timing was perfect!). The candy was also 50% and the Easter baskets etc were 75% off.

    barbiedoll1967 - thank you for watching! And that is pitiful and your newspaper delivery. Did you get a chance to call them? They will at least offer you a refund for those days and they should offer an extension. As ascherer pointed out, ask to speak with retention.

    Got some good deals at the Smithfield Cvs this morning. The things in the $1 bins were 75% off. Got lots of things for .25 each. Wipes, toothpicks, small packages of tissues, scrubbing pads etc. All Easter candy was 50% off. Other Easter items were 75%.

    Barbiedoll1967 send me an email with your address and I'll send you a few too

    Barbiedoll1967 - email me at I can send you all the coupons I won't use from the last three weeks.

    Now pick up the phone and call the N&O. Ask for the retention desk. Explain your situation and tell them you are thinking about cancelling you subscription over this issue. Then let them talk you into keeping it. For example - extend your subscription - give you a second Sunday paper for 2 months - guaranteed mailed delivery of every Sunday delivery missed but it has to have the coupons. Be firm,nice, and polite but make sure to write down the name off anyone you talk to. If it happens again call back and ask for a manager.

    If anyone has any extra coupons from yesterday's N&O paper I would love to have them. I didn't receive my paper for the last 2 weeks. Some type of glitch. I am so mad with the N&O right now. I paid for a year last September and they "accidentally" cancelled my subscription last Sunday. I called and they said I would receive a paper yesterday. Guess what? I didn't receive one. I called and they said a paper would be delivered but of course it wasn't. I'm so mad!

    i know this has been discussed before. iIam looking to buy a new printer that offers Wi-Fi. With my tablet this is the only way I can print. Any suggestions?

  • barbiedoll1967 Apr 4, 2016

    Faye, I watch you every Monday evening when I get home. I dvr the FOX 50 morning news so I can watch you. Thanks for everything that you do.

  • ascherer Apr 4, 2016

    I tried to tune in but I couldn't find Fox50 - even on the guide button. I rarely turn on the TV. Sorry.
