    Dear Amy: My 26-year-old grandchild “Sal” (and roommates) lost everything in a fire earlier this year. I reached out through Facebook to lament their loss, and many of my friends responded through donating money generously. Amy Dickinson  The (quite substantial) check was made out to me. They instructed me to handle it any way I thought best. I contacted Sal and asked how I should get them this money. The response was that they would pick it up sometime in the future from their parents and would share it with roommates. I know that this young adult is in dire financial straits right now, so I remarked something to the effect that I knew that Sal could probably use the money sooner rather than later.

    OVER the past three years this Prime Minister has faced a series of unprecedented challenges — in Brexit, Covid-19, war in Europe and the global cost-of-living squeeze. Most leaders would have found them individually daunting, and collectively overwhelming. 2Boris Johnson leaves Parliament after last night's vote of confidence in his leadershipCredit: AP 2The PM won the confidence ballot by 211 votes Not Boris Johnson.

    Hold on a second The American Center for Law & Justice caught wind of the issue and said it penned a legal letter — dated March 31 — to the interim director of the VA to "inform her that her decision, rather than upholding the Constitution, actually violated it" and "to demand that the display of Christian literature be returned forthwith to the gift shop." The ACLJ insisted that the Constitution "requires the government to be neutral toward religion, to neither favor it nor inhibit it. By removing only the religious display while leaving the secular display of Easter bunnies, the government singled out religion for special detriment — which it may not lawfully do." In addition, the ACLJ said "Easter is a time when many Christians exchange gifts. It makes sense for a gift shop to offer the type of items popular at Easter. Offering a religious product that visitors to your gift shop are looking for and wish to purchase — even in a gift shop in a federal facility like a VA...

    On Friday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) said that he thinks the cyberattack in Ukraine “portends an invasion. I would call this preparation of the battlespace right now.” And argued that Democrats gave Russia “a gift” by blocking sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and the Biden administration’s belief that threatening sanctions after an invasion will provide deterrence is wrong. Gallagher said, “I think it portends an invasion. I would call this preparation of the battlespace right now. And I also — we’ve heard reports out there that Jake Sullivan has said the intel. community has information which suggests Russia is laying the groundwork to fabricate a pretext for invading Ukraine.” He added, “The Biden administration is clinging to this foolish approach that just the threat of sanctions after the fact is somehow going to deter Putin. And more to the point, yesterday, what did we see in the Senate? We saw Senate Democrats, the same ones who, for four years lectured Republicans as being soft on Russia, who tried to portray former President Donald Trump as...

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I get along with most of my neighbors, but there’s one family we’ll never be close to. They’re just a bit snobby, with spoiled kids and no concern for others. A waist-high fence separates our yards. Basketballs and soccer balls fly into our yard a lot. If I’m out there, I throw them back, no problem. I’ve added a hook to close, not lock, our front fence, as we’re having a lot of work done and don’t want anyone getting hurt. In a group party game at the neighbor’s, one piece of equipment came over our fence. I looked everywhere, but couldn’t find it. I was sitting outside at the time, dealing with a very ill family member and said I would find it later and drop it off.

    EVEN with the best intentions, some acts of kindness can be taken the wrong way. This certainly happened to a woman who accidentally revealed to her neighbor’s kids that she was the one who got them toys for Christmas while their mother bought them clothes – but she didn’t know it was a secret in the first place. 3Two neighbors are at odds after the one claimed the other ruined their ChristmasCredit: Getty 3One neighbor took credit for the other neighbor's Christmas presents without the other knowingCredit: Getty The woman, who shared her frustrations in an anonymous post to Reddit, explained that a single mom of young children, who she named May for the sake of her story, moved next door to her this year.  “I don't know too much but know it was a bad situation so we offered to lend a hand whenever she needed, doing the occasional babysitting and school drop-offs/pick-ups, grocery shopping, etc.,” she noted. “With Christmas approaching, I asked if we could buy the boys a present,” she continued, adding that the neighbor didn’t have...
    The FBI is warning the public of cybercriminals targeting shoppers hoping to take advantage of online bargains and hard-to-find gift items for the holidays. During the 2020 holiday shopping season, the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center received more than 17,000 complaints regarding the non-delivery of goods, resulting in losses of over $53 million, the agency said.  It is anticipated this number could increase during the 2021 holiday season due to rumors of merchandise shortages and the ongoing pandemic. That's why criminals are busy finding ways to entice their victims in multiple ways including: Emails advertising hot-ticket or hard-to-find items, such as event tickets or gaming systems. Untrusted websites and ads promoting unrealistic discounts and bargains. Social media posts, often appearing to have been shared by a known friend, offer vouchers, gift cards, freebies, and contests. Social media hosted advertisements for non-existent or counterfeit items. Online surveys designed to steal personal information. To prevent any unhappy mishaps that may spoil your holiday, the agency offers the following tips: Verify websites prior to making a purchase. Only purchase items...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — It’s been more than three months since Gov. Gavin Newsom unveiled his ‘Vax for the Win’ program, doubling as a game show host and handing out cash prizes in the largest vaccine lottery in the country. In addition to the grand prizes, he also promised two million “You Call the Shot” $50 incentive gift cards to anyone who got a shot, on a first come first serve basis. However, CBS13 has learned as many as a quarter of those cards had not been distributed by late August – and hundreds of thousands of dollars in Vax for the Win gift cards may have gone unused due to “procedural errors.” READ MORE: Caldor Fire Grows To 216,358 Acres, 44% Contained “We’re putting aside $50 gift cards available today for anyone that has not been vaccinated to have that opportunity to be vaccinated,” Newsom said during a May 27 press conference. “Two million incentive cards on a first-come, first-serve basis.” Fast forward a few months and the state tells us more than 1.5 million of those gift cards were distributed....

    FACEBOOK will hand “a gift to terrorists” and child abusers by giving them total anonymity online, Britain’s spymaster warned yesterday. MI5 chief Ken McCallum said the tech giant’s plans for end-to-end encryption meant “we are drifting towards danger”. 2Facebook's privacy plans are a gift to terrorists and child abusers, MI5 chief warnsCredit: AFP He urged Silicon Valley to “engage seriously with governments or with me” to combat evil online.

    That’s a whole lotta java. An anonymous patron at a Dunkin’ in Beavercreek, Ohio, attempted to fuel up the entire town by paying for $4,000 worth of coffee and doughnuts earlier this month. Samantha Owens, the manager of the Dunkin’ location, tells Fox News that the generous customer — a regular — pulled up to the drive-thru on March 12, asking if he could purchase $1,000 in gift cards. Owens asked the driver to come inside the shop, where the do-gooder upped his order to $4,000. "I asked him about a thousand times if he was for sure," Owens says. GOODWILL EMPLOYEE FINDS $42,000 HIDDEN IN DONATED SWEATERS Owens, along with co-workers Mariah and Hailey, went to work loading up the gift cards (Dunkin’ doesn’t allow more than $100 per card, so the funds were distributed among 40 cards).

    IF you can't be bothered to wrap a present, then a gift bag is the next best option - but let's be honest, they don't do a very good job of concealing the gift. That said, one savvy woman has revealed the "right way" to use a gift bag - and her genius tip is what keeps them closed. 3Romina shared the life hack with her 19m followersCredit: TikTok/@rominagafur Sharing her life hack with her 19m followers, TikTok user Romina said: "This whole time you have been using gift bags wrong." Demonstrating the "correct" way, Romina said: "Take each end and pull it through the opposite hole just like I'm showing you."

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: My sister, who calls herself “the best gift-giver,” is notoriously difficult to shop for. Also, she chastises others for being “the worst gift-givers.” She says that if people just listen, they can find the perfect gift. For a milestone birthday, she bought herself a designer purse, a matching wallet and some brand-name apparel. My mom and I bought her diamond studs, which quite blew our budget, but we wanted to recognize her milestone birthday. When we presented them to her, she scoffed and said that no one ever listens to her, that she already has diamond studs, and to just return them. We were less hurt than just perplexed at her dissatisfaction. What do we do for next year? Related Articles Miss Manners: Why can’t these men realize I don’t need their help?

    DEAR HARRIETTE: I gave all of my nieces and nephews money for Christmas, mainly because we weren’t going to be able to see one another. I figured it was an efficient way to give them gifts. Plus, they are old enough to want to choose how to spend their money themselves. Harriette Cole  Of the six teenagers I sent money to, only two said thank you. I kid you not! I don’t mean a thank-you note. I mean anything. I didn’t hear boo from the others. I know they got the money because I sent it directly into their accounts. Two of them had to set up the delivery system so that they could even receive the money, which they did with help from their sister, and still they didn’t say thank you. I am surprised at just how rude they were. Do you think I should say something, or maybe just not give them a gift next year? I worry that if I wait until next Christmas, though, they probably won’t even remember — if they even realize it...
    Dear Moneyist, My husband is 82 years old. I am 83. We are retired. We are neither Democrats nor Republicans. Last year, about midsummer, we both received $1,200 stimulus payments. They were not in the form of checks, but rather they were in the form of gift cards to buy “stuff.” We have been retired since 2003. We planned our retirement during all of our working years. We do not light our fireplace with $100 bills, but we are comfortable. We asked ourselves: “Why were we receiving stimulus checks?” This money should have gone to people who had suffered loss of income, and needed it to pay for essentials. I spent the better part of three days trying to find out how to convert these gift cards to cash so that we could distribute the money to people or institutions where the money was needed. It was a tedious, complicated and convoluted process. Eventually, I was able to convert these cards to funds deposited to our individual bank accounts. We distributed the funds to our church, which is hurting because...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I’m 13 and I’m in a wheelchair. It’s been three years. How do I get people to stop asking what happened to me?

GENTLE READER: Here is a secret that will serve you in many situations: You don’t always have to match your answer to a nosy question.

My brother and sister-in-law (who are delightful and lovely, and with whom we get along well) call my son by a nickname that we never use — think Tom for Thomas — and misspell my daughter’s name — think Anne for Ann. We hardly ever see them because they live far away, so I haven’t said anything about it. I’ve rather been hoping that they’ll pick up the right name and spelling in our conversations, but so far, it hasn’t happened. We’re going to see them soon, though, and I’d prefer that they get it right. They also have two young children, and they may need a little time to get used to hearing and using the right names. (Not so worried about how the preschoolers spell.) I’d also like to embarrass them as little as possible. Is there a polite way to say, “We don’t actually call him that,” and “We actually spell it this way”? I’m probably overthinking this, but I don’t want to make them feel bad. Related Articles ...
