Re: OT? Funeral Home payment

I asked my sister - and I was 75% serious - if set the money aside, if she'd mind assembling gift bags for attendees to my funeral.

Think about it. You're filing out of the church all sad and then someone offers you a bag of candy (I was

Re: NYT: Life expectancy by county

What I find most interesting is the big swatch of blue in the norther mid-west in the middle of the country. The college education rates in those states aren't very high, incomes are around median for the US, obesity rates weren't lower - yet they [more]

Re: Charitable donations

It is indeed. It's sad that it's so difficult to find well-run, worthy charities.

No it's not. You're just looking for excuses not to give.

Re: Charitable donations

I can't think of 8 places that I've vetted and agree with enough to give that much to.

Re: Charitable donations

You're going to maintain that a board dedicated to people who monitor their income and expenses, people only donate for the gift of giving and don't itemize their taxes? Seriously?

Yes. Not all charitable giving is to 501c3 [more]

>Heck, now that I think about it, if I add in just the gasoline she burns doing all the stuff she does, it probably bumps us up to the six percent mark or more.

It's only 5th grade

For god's sake, it's only the end of 5th grade. Yes, our kids are done with elementary school and they're moving up to middle school, but it's not THAT big of a deal. Get over it and stop trying to out-do each other with how emotional you are.

Re: An Open Letter

Anyone can buy a shotgun shell, and proceed to mutilate themselves.

You don't need a license to carry a shotgun, do you?


In this state you need a license for a BB gun. (You'll shoot your eye out!) No, I am not making that up!

Re: Income disparity

My point is while Walmart, MD's, etc. may be taking advantage of employees and paying them low wages compared to the CEO pay, I don't think pushing up the wages from the bottom is going to solve the problem. The CEO's are certainly not going to [more]
