Mandy asks…

What is the best residential telephone service?

I’m talking bundles, phone, internet, and cable. Which service offers something not too pricey, very reasonable for a 1 bedroom apartment?

Administrator answers:

I had the AT&T home line but then i also wanted the tv and the internet, no matter what you do they are all expensive for a one bedroom apt. Or a five bedroom house. I finally use the cellular for my calls and the stand alone for Internet I quite using the tv altogether and just get my tv off the net. Now i pay 50oo for each, and its wonderful.

Other than that, go with AT&T, they have three really cheap packages here in IL. Called consumers choice, only about 30 per month depending on what you need.
I suggest you do NOT get your phone advice from we nillies off the web, but talk to all the companies available in your area and do your own pricing; its what YOU have to live with, not us. We drink too much, fight with baseball ump’s over the tv screen and are pretty much unreliable when things wrong if you listen to our bad advice.

Lizzie asks…

What would an entry level editor make per month at a bigger Canadian newspaper, such as the Montreal Gazette?

What would that be in US Dollars?

Administrator answers:

Entry level anything in a major Candadian newspaper would be around $20,000 US Dollars per year, and that’s if the writer’s lucky. I have a friend who was a freelance writer, proof reader, and mini column writer for the Montreal Gazette and she took home about $15,000/year.

You can best believe apartments aren’t cheap in any big Canadian city so, to get by on that little, you’d have to have a roommate or 2,or 3! Or a second job. Or be receiving trust money from wealthy parents!
