Re: Does Anybody Really?

*sigh* If ONLY I'd thought about ANY of that, AT ALL, before we bought our house. Or, ya know, planned for it in any way. Ah well...

Re: Garage Sales Tips

Please make sure all the book titles and cd titles are facing the same way. I've had some bad cases of whiplash because one title in a box of books had to be read from the other direction.

Re: Phil Marti -- let's keep him alive

Phil was a tremendous help to me on Taking Care of Parents, and when I thanked him he said it was his way of returning all the help he received from others.

He was a wonderful person.

Re: Advice from a Federal TSP Millionaire

I mentioned that it takes a while.

I worked for five years at a company whose plan was eventually turned into a 401(k). I never put a penny in after I left in 1987, but I also never touched it. It's worth over 100k now.

Re: GMO's In Vermont

As I recall, every gas pump had the warning "for use as a motor fuel only contains lead". Of course, there was also the small issue of atmospheric nuclear tests until 1963. If you want to go back to those times, please be my guest. I'm [more]

Re: Cleaning

notes that they also put the same tile on EVERY surface in the upstairs bathroom. Even the ceiling.

My bathroom is all tiled except the floor. Mint green with black. I hate it, but I doubt the landlords would be willing to replace it [more]

Re: the dogs of the Titanic

John Astor was last seen trying to kick in the kennel door to get his dog out. He had a very young, very new, very recently pregnant wife who he put into one of the lifeboats. Then he went to get the dog.

Re: Child labor at age 14

I've seen it both ways. It just depends on the attitude of the boss.

Speaking in general, it also depends on whether the kid is doing a real job, or just make-work for the summer. And the attitude of the kid also makes a [more]

Re: Marketing Email

Hi,

Thank you. It hasn't happened since then. But it startled me, since the system had been working fine. So I figured this was one sort of weird glitch, and you wouldn't know about the glitch unless I told you. And, of course, with it [more]
