Sorry if that's a stupid question--I'm just brainstorming without information here.


Well... it depends an a lot of factors, but I expect the biggest issue will be that most apartment complexes these days do credit checks on prospective renters, and they don't like to rent to people who can't show that they have a monthly gross income that's at least 3x the prospective rent. (And unfortunately, apartments which don't check incomes or paper trails tend to be a magnet for the kind of people who don't want paper trails or too many questions asked. :( )

also depends on where you live. Rural OH is not exactly known for having lots of apt complexes to choose from. In more rural areas, often a trailer park is the closest thing to an apt complex you will find.

He gives more information on the current front page.

(sigh)

Wish I could help, but with the car back in the shop -- we don't even know what's wrong yet -- and wheelchair vans built on a cargo frame not being terribly fuel-efficient, I'm treading water at the moment.

Cheezus... I know that electric heat is atrociously expensive, but that is getting well into 'ridonkulous' territory.

I might almost wonder if someone else has snuck a cable into his box to siphon juice...

I wouldn't be surprised if that was what was happening.

Well, a front-page update and a quandary: Do we have anyone that can get Ralph to the hospital? I know we have other people in Ohio, but I'm not sure how close anyone is. Still, if there's any chance, we need to figure out a way to get him to the hospital.

Transportation *shouldn't* be a problem this time around. I do have someone who can drive me there...

Now, if OSU would just answer its @#$%@# answering machine messages....

I checked the reviews for OSU's hospital. The emergency department reviews sound like a horror movie with a rating of two stars out of five, while the hospital reviews weren't so bad and four stars out of five.
From the things Ralph has had to go through, I'd just hope he isn't referred to their emergency dept.
