Sam's Club Membership

With a family of six, we buy a lot of items in bulk: Scads of groceries, toilet paper, etc. Sam's Club is the best place to get most of those things. Years ago, my wife's friend, who runs a small cosmetics business, offered to put my wife on her [more]

Re: "Why you should want more."

Or will they be talking about this person’s contributions and how blessed they feel to have known this person as a friend or co-worker? For most, success is ultimately defined by the Good that has been contributed, and by what is remembered [more]

Re: Free Coffee All Month at Panera Bread

This is an interesting offer. I have one of those Panera Bread rewards cards. I recently got an e-mail telling me that I am entitled to one free coffee every day during the month of April. What is most puzzling is that I rarely, if ever, [more]

Why is it so hard at the beginning of any dinner to simply say SEPARATE BILLS PLEASE!!!

Re: LBYM Quote

When most people say "I want to be a millionaire" what they really mean is "I want a spending lifestyle a very wealthy multi-millionaire or billionaire could afford to live".

Re: Poll: Defining "class"

Remember a couple weeks ago when Hillary Clinton said she was "dead broke" after the Clinton presidency.

Re: Rising Cost of College

Colleges were quick to point out that even though costs were going up, they were still a real bargain in terms of how much lifetime earnings would rise for graduates.

Re: Blind spot alert

Maybe I'm just odd. I don't have to check my blind spot when I decide I want to change lanes. I already know if someone is there or not. I'm constantly using my mirrors and keeping track of all the cars around me. I know if someone is closing [more]

Re: "Group" gifts (a rant)

1.) "My wife and I are getting our own gift for this. So, 'no thanks' on going in on the group gift."

B. Seeing how you numbered your points, it took several seconds to see the joke and realize it wasn't a mistake.

Re: dishonesty in LBYM

Constantly taking advantage of others is a pretty sihtty character trait. Maybe the neighbor's pathology has an LBYM cast, but it's still pathological.
