Re: Getting Better...

I'm glad you took your poison ivy to the urgent care people. It is truly a miserable thing to deal with. And spreads horribly. Better to get it from the inside where your whole body can be treated.

I have doing various kinds of aerobics in [more]

Re: He's a jerk

I stopped reading Mr. Money Mustache at the "Actually, you don't need to bathe" post. Maybe he's for real, maybe he's performance art, maybe a lot of things. He started out a little more reasonable, but I think his fans have encouraged him [more]

Re: Reading recommendations for 12 year old boy

I don't remember there being any religious themes in Wrinkle in Time at all. Then again, I didn't see them in the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe either until I was much older. (But it's a mighty fine story.)

I'm also generally perplexed [more]

Re: Leaf cuttings propagation.

I also root them by just sticking a broken leaf into soil and watering it sometimes. I don't know for sure, but suspect your little plant will do better if you allow it to keep the parent leaf, which is a nice strong basis for the new [more]

Re: Reading recommendations for 12 year old boy

David Eddings is a great author for that age (and for various others). His books improve significantly over the course of his writing, as well.

I'll second the suggestion for Heinlein, with a caveat that I mean the youth-focused Heinlein. A [more]

Re: An Open Letter

I have to agree with the sentiment about locality making an enormous difference. I've lived in northeast Wisconsin in a town where the average high temperature in July and August is all of 75 degrees. I've lived in Seattle, where it gets boiling hot [more]

Continuing to think about my house

Stress levels in the ThyPeace house are at record low levels last seen during a period of summer underemployment that I spent hanging around with DD and harvesting an incredibly bountiful first season of tomatoes back when she was 5.

Re: The Cybersecurity Boom

Am I the only one anticipating a move to take the "Cyber" out of "cybersecurity"?

Thypeace, paper is hard to hack from afar. And tough for a lot of other reasons.

Re: What's for lunch?

Then others at the table will make fun of both you and your food...

People don't make fun of my food choices. They just look askance and slightly horrified.

Re: What's for lunch?

there's another board for the Lunch threads...

I didn't know. And even if I had, I might have posted this anyway. It's a decent way to increase civility when things get heated.

ThyPeace, yes, we should all eat lunch together [more]

Re: Flower Day...

Oh my gosh. Five hours of gardening is awesome exercise! You go girl!! And I bet the results are very pretty. (Poison ivy, I hate to say, does not wash off. If you got into it, best bet I've found is to take yourself to the doctor and get some [more]

What's for lunch?

For me, it's leftovers from the chicken DH grilled over the weekend. With apples, walnuts, sliced veggies, and a couple of apples. That's my standard weekday fare these days.

There was enough chicken for several meals -- big bird at 8 [more]

Re: a real budget

SlowLearner, it looks like a fantastic start to me. You're obviously thinking now, and that's a really good thing.

Re: a real budget

I have occasionally spent an entire day working on setting up budget stuff. Most recently I did it when DH and I combined households. I'm still tweaking and testing and trying to figure out what works well.

There are lots of specifics, but [more]

Re: TSP options

Hmm. When I looked at them, I wasn't terribly impressed and didn't look farther. As I look at them now, I recall why I wasn't impressed -- that same very conservative approach that you noted. I think my straight 20% allocation is less conservative [more]

TSP options

So this is a very quiet board, but yet I suspect there are a fair number of folks who read it. I am a contributor to the TSP, as is my husband. I haven't changed my allocations since the day I started in the Federal government (20% to each of the 5 [more]

Re: ThyPeace irregular update

Thanks, Moquito! I'm glad we're not the only ones who spend car rides on things like that. One of my stepsons was in the back for the ride and listened to the whole conversation. He was astonished at the time and detail that went into it, and asked [more]

Re: Seriously.

I do have the patience to respond and be encouraging, but not as much time as I'd like. I also tend not to think of myself as the best exemplar of how to do this stuff.

But even if it's imperfect, it's nice to see people posting. I wish, to [more]
