Re: Ake hole Driver

Been there, unfortunately. I simply gave up riding on a number of popular bike routes around Ann Arbor after numerous such incidents. And I was one of the relatively luckier ones, merely ending up in a ditch a couple of times. Other cyclists I knew [more]

Re: European journey

Thank you for your writeup of your trip, 1poorguy. I hesitate to say so, but I've read it twice and I can't get much sense about whether you enjoyed the experience. Instead, I get the impression that the whole thing was basically an assignment and [more]

Re: Repairman's Bill

If I understand it correctly, the first visit was a flat rate to clean out the sewer line, which they did. The price is consistent with what good companies in Ann Arbor charge for that service.

The final visit involved the business owner [more]

Re: 2nd Hand Stores

There are many terrific thrift/second-hand stores here in Honolulu. Two of them that are fairly well-known are Bailey's and Inter-island Hotel Furniture.

Thank you, Bob. No cramps, no problems. I ran 12 miles today, out to the Kahala Hotel and back. There is nowhere I would rather be.

PSU, I'm doing my own, solo (with my wife handing off bottles and nutrition). I'll do it here on Oahu, using much of the original Ironman course.

Here's a list of the top 100 songs from 1994. Not a lot to work with in there, but you could always lead with #42, the (in)famous "Whoomp! (There It Is)" by Tag Team.

Re: When should I cash in???

If you are living off the dividends, I'm not sure why the current nominal yield is of interest to you ... or, for that matter, the current stock price. As long as the company is not at risk of cutting the divvy, what would you gain by "locking [more]
