Re: Alyce - how about the ALS Ice Bucket Challen

Very pragmatic. Best of Luck quitting, you will no doubt find a path that works eventually. My Dad did too late at about 70. It wound up killing him (emphysema) at 86....that might seem counter to the desired outcome, but his last few years were [more]

Re: Who knew

Well, I hope they are right. I guess we will find out in the next 12 months or so..... I'm not a pickup buyer, so my instant reaction is of no consequence, but I am underwhelmed....

Re: Worker shortage vs. pay

Thanks for that, and you are correct, I am now MUCH better informed...on the other hand, I still do not see the data regarding freight rates that would allow Trucking enterprises to pay their drivers more. I do recall reading the Wall St J. article [more]
