I'm trying to raise money for our leaking roof and the debt consolidation loan we need to avoid bankruptcy and the two households we're going to have to maintain because my job is sending me back to Texas through selling maille with a 15% off coupon, but none of the big items are going. I've also got a GoFundMe set up, linked here. 
We're Andrew and Tiffany, two years short of being empty nesters, running a small alpaca farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. We've poured years of blood, sweat, toil, and cash into this farm. Now we need to get a home equity line of credit so that we can consolidate our debts, get the r...

There was a time when Craftsman meant something. Now, Sears and Why Not Lease It are double-teaming me to screw me over. Back in May, I bought a new riding mower, when we thought we had money, to keep this 6 acres I live on under control. It's been one technical failure after another since. Now Sears tells us we're owed a new mower, as this one is obviously a lemon, but they say the finance company has to eat the new mower, and the finance company says nuh-uh, we're not cutting into our profit margin, Sears has to eat it. Both of them are eating my money and shitting on me. So tired of being shat on.

We can't get them to honor the contract. The finance company and sears both insist the other party has to make good on the deal.

I'm in a serious bind. I have to find a furnished room with access to a kitchen on very short notice, as I have to move back to San Antonio or lose my job. My budget is low, so an extended stay hotel is right out. I'll be arriving October 1 with a suitcase and a laptop bag, because that's all I'll be able to carry. Craiglist ads are mostly "young single professionals only" and about half "women only". Nobody wants an old IT guy hanging around. Can anyone help?

+Anne Freitas​ thanks. The company will cover my first week so I'm good there. After that it depends on whether I've found anything again.

Andres at the front desk was the only employee actually working. He ran his butt off taking care of us. My wife has fibromyalgia and needs hydrotherapy after long car rides. The pool area opens at 7 according to the sign. At 8:30, it was still locked, and when Andres unlocked it, the hot tub was shut off and stone cold. No hydrotherapy for you. The engineer (didn't get his name) and the other guy whose jacket covered his badge gave us non apologetic apologies. The breakfast was terrible, with little that someone allergic to pork could eat other than carbs. Won't stay here again.

Amazing chicken shawarma sandwich. They sprinkle feta in the olive oil that comes with the appetizer bread.

They do an excellent grilled falafel sandwich, but the best offering is the set-menu breakfast. Do not go by yourself. Take a small group. There's lebneh, hummus, foul, yogurt with honey, sour cream with za'atar and olive oil, black and green olives, scrambled eggs with tomatoes and onions, and they bring out huge rounds of fresh-baked bread until you surrender. I went there with a group of six. Two more of our friends showed up after we had been served. We left with food still on the table, unable to finish it all. Excellent service, friendly staff, and I'm told they set up a good hookah.

Very geek-friendly, with a separate gaming room fitted out with a whiteboard and comfortable chairs, diverse genre decor, and a staff that play the games, watch the movies, and read the books. Brilliant menu, although a bit pricey for the average gamer.

Excellent buffet, with Pakistani-influenced dishes that I don't usually see at an Indian restaurant. Good service, very polite staff. I've been here multiple times and never had a bad experience.

Dunno about their hookahs, but they do an awe inspiring breakfast on Saturday mornings. Bring friends and be prepared to spend serious time with serious amounts of amazing food.
