re: Tell me about hearing aids - FredsGotSlacks
Posted by Epic Cajun on 5/4/15 at 4:52 pm to doublecutter I'd reconsider Siemens, because they may be go away from healthcare in the next few years, and could leave you without customer support. Instead I'd look into Oticon, Resound, or Phonak, all are high quality and have excellent custom...

re: Private Plane Owners - FredsGotSlacks

Those are just my personal favorites though. If you can afford the upgrade to a turbine single ho...

re: Nobody fly on United Airlines anymore! - FredsGotSlacks
Delta hired close to 1000 last year and is expected to do it again this year. American is supposed to hire more then that. So since United is hiring only 700 I guess that makes them the safest, right? And the people they are hiring are extremely experienced and qualified pilots (hopefully I'll b...
