      It just dawned on me just now while posting on a topic.  4 more years and Had it will have been around for 30 years.  Three decades. Holy moly.  Wow.  This while sipping on some cup of coffee with my new Had it coffee mug.

      Man kind of bummed but working on a resolution.  I finally got my very own Had it coffee mug but I received it with the handle in pieces. Got a hold of the vendor, so hopefully a replacement will be in soon.  Still excited about the mug though.  Silly but now I can kind of have coffee in the morning with Had it keeping me company.  I gotta wait till the replacement ships.

      the va is still fighting me over effective dates, the last excuse they used was the last filing I did, was 2012. I sent them my VA letters showing I had open claims from decades it the past. since my paid rep helped me in the past, and left him as a retainer as being on retainer. he also said he would not help me get an earlier effective date, so my filing of a CUE for a new effective date has been a fight going on 6 months. I include a letter in my CUE filing that I am claiming the CUE on my own with no help from anyone else. And my rep is not helping with my CUE. They sent me a letter stating I had no claims before 2012 for the conditions. I sent them the official correspondence from the VA with dates of claims (going back decades). Also had sent a copy of my letter from the VA stating they were the cause of my Necrotizing pancreatitis from 2008. The VA continues to lie and fight me, and I keep giving them copies of the very documents in my files over 3 decades. They are either very incompetent or such aggreges liars.
