Re: where to begin

Is the $82K from US Bank a mortgage or a direct plus student loan?

From the replies s/he has made, it appears that the $82k is the mortgage and the $16k @7% is a student loan.

Re: where to begin

Sounds like it. I'm wondering if Great Lakes is a car loan, home equity, or what.

Re: Free-range hens 'are least healthy' .

Thanks for sharing your local schools whole grain menu but each week seems to be the very same. Is it not possible to alter the menu so that the sameness doesn't get boring?

Or they could easily build in some a la carte options for students to purchase. I understand some schools just let the kids order two lunches, but that doesn't solve the problem of lack of protein.

Re: Free-range hens 'are least healthy' .

I was just in several elementary schools during lunches. Loads of fresh fruits and vegetables are being loaded on the plates of school children, who then load it into the food waste dumpster.
