kanling's Latest Activity

  1. I have been wondering for years how I get junk mail from people who know that I'm a nurse. And how it kept following me even when I moved. The only thing that made sense was that the mailers were getting the data directly from the MBON. But I couldn't believe that a Maryland State agency would be releasing personal data. I was wrong! And I didn't even have to call. The MBON is selling mailing list data on their own web site! This is completely outrageous in my opinion. http://www.mbon.org/main.php?v=norm&p=0&c=services/labels.html I hope I can at least call and get them to remove my name from the sales list. Don't they have to have a privacy policy? Don't they collect enough in fees from nurses? Am I just crazy that I am annoyed by this?

    Need advice please-moving to Maryland

    Sounds like a few trips might be in order to get familiar with the area. Where will your fiancee be working?

    MD hospital near PA & DE borders?

    Sweet indeed. I'm surprised O'Malley hasn't started ending the tax reciprocity agreement with those states. But you have a slight mistake. Delaware is not on the list. Virginia is. And Delaware is a big exception. If you live in Delaware and work in Maryland, you will have to file a Maryland tax return on that income. And the worst part is, the Maryland income tax rate is actually higher for out-of-state residents than it is for in-state residents. A real scam... but it is Maryland after all.

    baltimore..what's it like

    What makes you pick Mercy in Baltimore? Are you somehow limited to this area or could you go anywhere? I realize you are in Australia. I don't know where you live there, but my guess would be that living in downtown Baltimore would be a mistake for you. You should carefully research before committing.
