Re: What are the 10 best states for ...

Based on zero hard data, I'd venture that upper-Midwestern states would cluster highly on such a list -- e.g., Minn, Wisc, Iowa, Nebraska.

Southern states would probably cluster where [more]

Re: Munich to Brussels?

If it were me, I'd train it and probably break it up with an overnight somewhere nice along the way. Dusseldorf is good, although a bit out of the way. Why not Cologne or Frankfurt?

Re: Donald Trump disses West Side Story gangs

My daughter, Erin, wrote this. She is not a writer by profession but very good at it.

It's great! For some reason, it reminds me a bit of "Mamet's Appliance Center":

Re: Biden: Highest Favorability Rating

I want Warren in the Senate.

Well, she'd still be in the Senate, as its President.

Veeps can wield a lot of influence (for good or ill), e.g., Dick Cheney.

Re: A Wealth of Opportunities

Does "top performing" translate into top "real income" accounting for shares transferred to insiders from Treasury Stock (Balance Sheet) and subtracted from earnings reported on the Income Statement?

Re: Danny Dissipated, Here Comes Erika

I feel ya. Out our way, we're already up to "Ignacio," on track to hit Hawaii Island toward the end of the week. The preceding storms/hurricanes have missed us (although we got 5 inches of rain in a few hours the other day), but this one [more]

Re: OMG!

I couldn't help myself. I initiated modest positions in O, LH, and IBM yesterday. Yes, IBM ... which I told myself I wouldn't consider unless it got below $150, which it did.

I tried to buy some CSL, but it didn't quite reach my limit order. [more]

Not buying more, but not selling either. VIAB is not a "conviction" stock for me; just one that looked/looks like decent value. With the latest Mission Impossible movie doing great, things will likely look better come fall for [more]

Re: Massive bike block

I trained for Ironman-distance tri's for many years (since 1987). It took me 16-20 hours/week for the 6 months leading up to a key race, and then I dialed back to around 1/3 of that in the other 6 months. Your body adapts.

Re: Ex Officio boxer briefs

Can you elaborate why they are worth that much sitting on a plane?

Cotton absorbs sweat and tends to bunch up when I'm scrunched in a seat for a long time. These don't.

Ex Officio boxer briefs

For all you guys: I finally spent the big bucks ($26 on Amazon) for an ExOfficio "Give-N-Go Boxer Brief". If you ever expect to sit 6+ hours on a plane (or train, or bus, or camel), you simply must get these. How did I ever survive without [more]

You mean the little magnifying glass on the right-hand side of the menu bar and/or in the box on the top right when you click on Finder? It's not there for you?

You might also want to look into Medicare Advantage Plans in your state, such as those offered by Humana.
