Re: Induction range

I don't have one, but have cooked on them lots. Hate them and much prefer gas. But that's just me.

Re: Free cash: Invest it or burn my mortgage?

It's amazing how easy you can sleep at night knowing that your investment portfolio has 2 or 3 times as much money as you'd need to pay off the mortgage, in the off chance that you should desire to do so.
Not for me…I would pay it off, [more]

Re: Pumpkin Cutlets

I often roast pumpkin or kabocha squash and brush it with a mixture of seasoned soy sauce at the end (recipe below). I would imagine regular soy, maybe just sweetened a bit with sugar to balance flavor if it - or steak sauce - would be delicious as [more]

Re: Help! Car purchase

I have bought one brand spanking new car, one lightly used for $6K, and two for under $3K. The ones for under $3K performed well. Sure, as older cars they had some issues, but they were safe and reliable, and I got great use out of them. I got [more]

Re: Annual Lent Thread

I haven't bought salad dressing in about a decade. I guess if you like fancier flavors, it's worth it - but I can make a lot of great vinaigrettes with what is in my pantry and it's super cheap, fast & easy. My current fave is balsamic, olive [more]

Re: OT: "History doesn't repeat itself, ...

Thanks for the attribution - I thought that was by Jay-Z!

I'm reading "Roughing It" now - Twain is pretty great.

Re: tim433 violates METaR rules

This argument is a big waste of time, and does nothing but clutter up the boards.

1. People will disagree - that's to be expected. Abrupt or strong disagreement isn't hateful.
2. Refusing to cite a link is perfectly fine. You are free at [more]

Re: Test results

Another vote for Floradix. I have been dangerously anemic a few times in my life - and even the doctor's horse pills didn't help all that much. But this stuff did. Plus I drank some blackstrap molasses every day in hot water. Many people hate the [more]

Re: Poll: Dr. Appt Wait Times

Sorry ....in an ER department where anyone needs to sneak in at night and beg to be readmitted there's likely to be no-one there to re-admit them. This scenario would be plausible in, maybe, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Sochi or a TMF board.... but [more]

Re: Living Below Your Means Under Obamacare

All told, I'll spend about $500 a year on medical expenses. An apple a day…
At 32 I was also like you. At 33 had major surgery out of the blue. Without insurance would have run $65K. Will I ever be without it again? No.

Re: who needs "net neutrality"?

Most of the Korean dramas I watch are not on disc. The reason for this being that most of the rest of the world (and specifically Korea) has moved away from discs and uses streaming. So yeah, net neutrality is a big deal. I can see this is going to [more]

Re: Talking money = always rude??

If I paid $200 for a vacuum cleaner, and you ask, I'll tell you. If I paid $20 for the same vacuum cleaner, on clearance, with a coupon, on my birthday so I got an extra 10% off, I'll tell everyone I know.
I wouldn't do either. I don't [more]

Re: Is Marriage A LBYM Activity?

Every woman I know but one cooks, and cooks well. My BF doesn't cook (except pasta), and nor do most of the single men I know. Except my Thai-Cooking buddies of course, who are ninjas in the kitchen.

Re: You may be saving too much for retirement

How many people really like their jobs? I think I've met about 3.
I like mine! When I do work it's irregular. But I LOVE it.

But like 2gift's DH, I am self-employed so it comes and goes. Right now I am taking +/- a year off to [more]
