I've been tempted by "My Pillow" - and thought about buying one for my 91-year old father. What are your thoughts on My Pillow Dogdoc?

Roxip, I'm on my second set of "My Pillow" and love them. Very comfortable. Had the first set for about 10 years and only upgraded because they are now available in a variety of firmness.
Between the My Pillow and Sleep Number bed I sleep well, though not long enough.

I used my first "My Pillow" all the time. It wore out before 10 years.

I am on my second one. It does retain its shape as you sleep.

I will get another one when this one wears out.

I will gladly give away "My pillow", after developing a very stiff neck. Have gone back to my old pillow for side sleepers.

Sometimes a stiff neck is not caused by a pillow.

I have found that when I start to fall asleep, I want to make sure my whole body is relaxed, especially the neck and shoulders.

If your body is tense, no kind of pillow can help.

Found a top load washer I like! It's a Speed Queen. Remember that name? I haven't heard it in years. Still made in the US. A bit pricey but comes with a 3,5 or 7 year warranty depending upon the model you purchase. And still has the agitator I love and not so deep I can't reach the bottom!

Still looking, but keeping my eye on this one.

Speed Queen is a great washer! That's what most commercial laundromats use.
When the front loader I mentioned above started acting up, before we had it looked at my husband picked up an ancient Speed Queen at a used appliance store for $40. We ended up getting over 2 years out of that old machine. When we finally decided on a new top loader I went and looked at Speed Queens, but they didn't make a machine big enough for a king sized comforter. Had they made one big enough, that's what I would have ended up with.

Finally got my Speed Queen washer & dryer and washed clothes all weekend! Takes some getting used to since my old ones were soooo old! Things have advanced a lot since then.

I like all the options it gives me and my clothes look just as nice as they did out of the old washer. It's weird not hearing the agitator working. It's more of a swish-swish-swish now.

So far I would say I am very pleased with them. Hopefully they will last me 20 years like my others did.

Thanks for all the info. It's a great help to hear everyone's experience with different brands. Now I'm off to check out Dogdoc's "My Pillow"!!

Glad you were able to get your Speed Queen. I recognize the brand name mostly from when I was in college or in an apartment without laundry facilities and had to go to a laundromat. You saying you found a retailer got me thinking that I couldn’t remember seeing Speed Queen at Home Depot, Best Buy, etc. A check of the Speed Queen website shows that the closest Speed Queen retailer is indeed a relatively small appliance store some 20 miles from my house. Not available at any of the bigger appliance stores.
