Re: Greetings, Fool!

What the heck is a gull bladder?

Opposite of a boy bladder.

I thought it was that little sac of air under the wing that makes that squawking sound.

It's such a bad idea

I mean, a really awful idea. I don't even Twitter, (or tweet) and I knew, the moment I read it, it was an awful idea.

You know how some companies were stupid enough to create hashtags for their business and urge their customers to write in [more]

Re: Salt

Maybe Wendy and VE should have their very own board. They can even have debates. Wendy cites the NYT, and VE can cite her "common knowledge."

Re: A prepaid card that tracks expenses online?

The Credit Card board may offer some good thoughts on this, and I would definitely ask there. Does your partner have a credit card in his home country? If so, they may be able to help him find a card that wouldn't be subject to high [more]

Re: My job......

The only thing keeping me from just giving notice right now is fear of that looking really bad when I try to find more work. I actually have money to handle prolonged unemployment but I'm still concerned about that.

Counting your chickens

For reasons I cannot explain, even to myself, I've been reading about chickens lately. And I kept running across mentions of the Wichita Chicken Coop, which is a coop that some guy in Wichita built, and it apparently works well enough that other [more]

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.

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]
