On Topic: IRA, 401K

My company has a 401K - the fees are high, greater than 1% for most funds. I was contributing to get the match, and then upped it to get the tax deduction.

I was [more]

Re: Body Weight Workouts

Try planks. They work pretty much all the core and some of these variations also strengthen back muscles.

Thanks - those are helpful

Re: Body Weight Workouts

For back, you can do good mornings, bent rows/flies, locust/superman, bridge. You can do reverse flys on a stability ball, too. Actually lots of stuff on the ball, google back exercise and stability ball.

Re: Body Weight Workouts

How do you do your back if you don't have a pull up bar handy? That is always my dilemma

I had a colonoscopy in December - everything is fine and nothing found. A diverticuli or two, nothing out of the ordinary. I probably need to increase my fiber intake.

I get a bill for $725.

What's this, I ask? This is covered as a [more]

Re: Check Engine Light Diagnostic tool

I have a scanguage II.

It reads codes, plus a lot of other stuff. I use it to monitor transmission temp when towing, gas mileage, Pluse it will read and clear codes. Nice little unit.

Re: well, this is one way to do it...

That's twice what a nursing home would cost. Must be a nice room. I was thinking $52K per year to live on a cruise ship.

Re: Democrats war on gun ownership

For the same reason you have an automatic transmission in your car.....rather than a manual.....

Because real men aren't afraid to have their gears shifted for them?

So basically, I own a semi-automatic rifle because I am [more]

Re: "Responsible gun owner" dead

Stop and think about that. You can get a "shall issue" permit to carry a concealed semi automatic firearm, but you cannot be trusted with pepper spray.

But I don;t support spending the resources of human beings for abstractions like "the environment."

I don't think the environment is abstract, it happens to be where I live. I like it to be unpolluted.

Re: Almonds vs Salmon

Once again we have environmentalists and liberals waging war on the working class!<?i>

Re: Almonds vs Salmon

Protecting salmon as an endangered species takes them OUT of the human diet.

Not protecting Salmon will also take them out of the human diet, and also killer whales, bears, etc.
