Kentucky Journal
February 3rd

Today was another day into Williamson to do some business.  First stop was at the BB&T Bank to open up a personal and business checking account. Long wait to see the manager but I was told that this was Social Security day and so the banks were real busy.  Eventually got in to her and got everything sorted out.

One interesting option was on the checking account.  I could get an ordinary checking account but if I was prepared to open up a checking account + account then I got all kinds of discounts on all kinds of things plus a free supply of checks.  So.. I thought what the heck and went for the + one :-)

Another interesting thing was with the business account.  No free checks with them but it was interesting to note that they actually recommended going to a printer to get them as that way it would be a lot cheaper.  Anyway... got everything all signed up and the accounts went live right away and my debit cards will be with me within 10 days.

Then it was off to the means wear shop where I needed to get a pair of trousers.  They cost me $53.00 including an alternation charge.  At this time that would be 29.00 in the UK so not a bad price all considered.  I also got a pair of jeans just to fit a bit more into the local cover :-)

Next it was a visit to the "Cool Spot" where Steve got his Killians and then it was onto WalMart to do some shopping where I also picked up a pair of shoes. I thought we were just in for a few items but ended up with an overloaded shopping tolley.

Then it was up to Radio Shack to see if we could transfer Steve's mobile phone to myself but they ended up not being able to do it so we will need to go into Pikeville to get that done.  It was then onto Belfrey for me to get a notarised copy of my passport for the next visa application and then it was back to the house.

Steve then headed back over to pick up Deb from work and I got on with some computing work.

This evening I've been doing a major job of editing a lot of the pictures I took as I got emails in saying they were rather dark so hope my editing will make a difference.

Deb and Steve arrived back with food.. roast beef sandwiches and baked potato with broccoli and cheese. 

Tonight it was onto the WalMart site to order a copy of QuickBooks for the new company.

Also had the bright idea after talking to Anne MacPherson about going to Toyota to ask if they'd like to provide me with a Toyota "Highlander" vehicle in return for me giving them an advert on the site.  Sounded like a great idea from my point of view anyway.. so do keep your fingers crossed :-)
