Re: I hope this is a trend


GWU has always had a 'lax' policy about getting in..


Huh? Barron's gives it a selectivity rating of 1 (most competitive).

Re: Go Set a Watchman?

I preordered it on Kindle months ago. Read about 40 pages, but I don't think I'll finish it. It's very clearly a first draft, and I don't want to ruin Mockingbird for myself...

Use, and reuse, your veggies?

I might try this, just because I'm a science experiment kind of geek. (Currently have a beginner sourdough starter going and trying to root a pineapple top in my kitchen. Recently threw out my avocado rooting failure... but I will try again). [more]

Re: What's for lunch?


LOL! Unless, of course, your diet is vegan. Then others at the table will make fun of both you and your food because...you know...how dare you be different from everybody else? :)


Oh, you get made fun of for other stuff as well. [more]

Re: Switzerland Ruined America For Me

No, I'm not really too serious about the Villages. Not serious enough to read a book about it. It's way out of my league. It would take "then a miracle occurred" for us to be able to afford live there. Like winning the lottery. It's [more]

Some good friends of ours that live in Tallahassee, Florida told me that "The Villages, Florida" is owned and operated by members of the Tea Party and a large percentage of the people who live there are conservative Republicans. Our [more]

Re: How to put clothes in consignment?

I always tried to select styles that would fit around and minimize my disproportionally large bust, often in Size 16 or even 1W even though my shoulders and hips fit a Size 14. Now these clothes hang on me and make me look like a little schoolgirl [more]

Re: How to put clothes in consignment?

These are too nice to give to Goodwill. Has anyone put clothes in consignment to make some money back? What's the procedure?

1. Go to the consignment store and ask them what their requirements are.
2. Typically, they require that [more]

Re: Switzerland Ruined America For Me

A good friend felt the same way after living in Sweden for several years. She came back and lived in America again for a couple of years, but went back first chance she had.

Re: Umbrella Insurance

Right. So I guess I have to spell out the obvious to you.

Bull. If for no other reason than it's simply not true.

More bull. More distracting from my original question. More hand-waving.

Re: Umbrella Insurance

As an adjuster, a couple of curio questions for you if you don't mind :-)

Where there is a multiple car pile-up on an icy freeway, how is fault determined when a series of cars are involved? My understanding is its the one who hit and

Re: Umbrella Insurance

The total amount of protection purchased might be completely disproportionate from the value of the assets you are trying to protect. For instance, you might decide you need to buy $10M in protection to protect $1M in assets because you can't [more]

I agree with the response that there isn't a typical amount. What nobody is answering is how to derive the amount that is appropriate for an individual's situation. What guidelines do you use?

Re: Umbrella Insurance

I believe the one should also consider the range of potential claims. For example suppose that one caused a car accident (court assesses 100% fault) and the four people riding in the car you hit were killed and consisted of two young partners in a [more]
