Re: Big gov't knows best in Texas

For example, should you be able to burn your trash on your property even though the smoke and stench fills the neighborhood (even without an HOA)? How about dump used motor oil in a pit in your yard? How about operating a feed lot on your [more]

Re: On the brighter side

I stuck whole tomatoes in zip bags last summer and tossed them in the freezer. They are terrific in soups/stews/etc. I put them in whole in the pot and when they defrost, the skin comes right off and I use scissors to cut them up. That was my last [more]

Re: On the brighter side

We enjoyed our first tomato on a salad last night. Found another one hidden in the lush greenery that had ripened secretly. It's awaiting our next salad today or tomorrow. Yum, yum.

Will pick a few of the light green ones (about to turn red) [more]

Re: supermarkets--New York City

Where are the best supermarkets to save money, in Manhattan and Queens?

You may get responses here, but posting on the Folly in New York board might get better info.

Re: Off topic... game

3.I played the flute for four years in our High School orchestra.

And I know your family hung out with some major players in history.


I'm guessing that one is stretching the truth. I'd never accuse you of lying, Maryanne.

Re: Hersh: The Killing Of Osama bin Laden

Only the GOP cares about smearing anything to do with it because they weren't in office to do it.

Who cares? There was a reward. It was collected. He's dead as planned.

Re: American Funds Simple IRA

My preference would be the fund with the lowest expenses -- Vanguard.

Sometimes you get what you pay for. Vanguard does a good job, but you don't get much personal input. So, if you're very familiar with investing and are very [more]

Tomorrow I will drive to Waco to pick up DD2 after her first year of college.

Re: Holland America

My DH won't even consider Carnival due to all the bad press.

I wouldn't, either, but a friend won a free cruise and I was her plus-one.

Food was very good, IMO.

Re: Chaco Canyon

Chaco Canyon is well worth the 15 or so bumpy miles on a dirt road to visit. There is nothing around the site in the way of accommodations that I am aware of, but it was a number of years ago.

We drove up to Chama, spent the night, and took [more]

Re: Travel envelopes/cubes

Worse, they have cut TSA approved locks (for which they have special keys).

TSA locks are and always have been as useful as regular locks, i.e. useless.

If baggage handlers want in, they'll get in.

Re: what broker!

I also came to Ameritrade via the Datek acquisition. They've been just fine for me. No complaints.

I came to Ameritrade, through (I think it was called) Ceres in the early-'90s. No complaints at all.
