Re: Don't take the bait

That there is one of the very few people I have ever p-boxed, and the only one who still is.

Re: Pay off my home early

So.... I'll take a slightly opposing view, knowing that mathematically, everyone who says something like "look for the best return on your money" is correct. I am nonetheless paying off my mortgage (at a slightly higher rate than yours) [more]

Re: An Open Letter

Got one of Jeff Galloway's books (the one for beginners), and have read maybe 70 pages of it so far. I am still missing many key points, I know. Nonetheless, I figured I'd try a few things out this morning since I was going to run anyway. I am sure I [more]

Seder

Went to a kid-friendly (in other words, short) Passover seder at our neighbors' house last night. I enjoyed it, as I always do seders. This was the first time I'd had fresh horseradish root for the bitter herbs -- I had had prepared horseradish [more]

Re: Update - Life, Organization, etc.

So glad to hear that you're healing, Cassandra! That's the most important thing. I am doing pretty well with the Whole30-ish version of eating that I've ended up with. I'm losing weight, feeling good, and with the benefit of much-reduced stress [more]

Thanks, Laura, I will definitely look into those!

ThyPeace, it was 55 degrees this morning. I never thought I'd say this, but that's about as warm as I want it!

Re: Poll: Millionaire Next Door - 3

Looks to me like I have kept up with inflation... and am not a millionaire at the $4M level. So, well, not sure what to pick.

ThyPeace, wishes she could surge ahead of inflation. Then a salad would still feel like a salad instead of a [more]

Re: An Open Letter

Take it easy and be consistent. Better to do a mile a day for a while then to do more each day and then quit.

So true! This longer run was a conscious test to see if I could make the distance. Now I'm back to my usual 2-2.25 miles [more]

Re: Food

I have made my own mayonnaise and found it to be far superior to the store-bought stuff. I used extra light (which means no olive flavor) olive oil. With one egg, lemon juice, salt, and mustard powder. Here's the recipe along with a good bit of [more]

Re: OT. Median house price

First house was a 3 bedroom townhouse in Fairfax County, VA. $126k, interest was something like 6.25%. Purchased in 1996. Sold the house for $210k in 2002 at the beginning of the housing boom.

Next (and current) house was $525k at the end of [more]

Re: How can one approach fixing a bad credit sco

As a Federal employee working in a remote area, do you have any premium pay that you would have to give up if you worked in a less remote area? It's also not necessarily true that a less rural area is less expensive to live in. Manhattan or San [more]

Re: An Open Letter

Awesome. Having run and walked 3.5 miles over the weekend and now working through the sore muscles that go with that little exercise, I cannot quite imagine a marathon.

I do, however, think it's cool.

Re: WooHoo!!!

Good luck with the chicks! Be careful with them -- fresh-hatched babies are very susceptible to cold and illness and other things.

I have the opportunity to do so every waking moment of every day. How frequently do I actually do so? Not very many of those, I fear. I have had the opportunity [more]

Re: Honest question...

Heh. Found the answer with the help of your hint and Google. Nice.

ThyPeace, physics major, so would never think of the philosophy or the physical education answers.

Re: coffee lovers

The last really good coffee I had was Blue Bottle. It is, unfortunately, more than your previous price point was and is local (I think) to San Francisco and maybe New York. I also like Alterna, if you happen to be in Wisconsin.
