Re: no consolation prize?

Was there no vote-by-phone to give $100k to someone else this time around?

And no big plugs for Sprint either, who in the past was the one who footed the bill for the "People's Choice."

Dan

Mike was brilliant in handling Dan at final TC, and Dan was just over the top funny, (without meaning to be,) in his vote for Mike. We were howling with laughter as Dan banged his head against the table, wrestling with his vote.

Re: Expected More From Mamma C

Did I see correctly? Did Jen raise her hand that she would have voted for Rodney if he was in the final 3?

Yup. And wasn't she the one who voted for Momma C?

No, going back to the video I see it was Sierra, unrecognizable [more]

Expected More From Mamma C

This woman is a white collar, no doubt used to meeting with her supervisors and reviewing her progress annually to justify raises/bonuses. Where was that woman at TC? IMO she did a great job playing the game but failed royally in communicating what a [more]

Re: Paint Color Choice Mistakes

Other colors in the room also have an effect. I knew a guy who painted his condo a light gray. Looked nice. Then he put in a burgundy carpet and the color cast in the room changed completely and the walls didn't look light gray anymore. I didn't [more]

Re: Rental morgage to pay off student loans

The degrees they're pursuing are Engineering and Medicine so, yeah, I'm sure they'll co-op during summers or research with a professor or two. Research pays....about $8/hour. I've already checked. With a professor.

Wow. $8 is pitiful. [more]

Re: Next Week's Preview

So Rodney is apparently upset and indignant and feeling betrayed by Carolyn, whom he just finished betraying?

There has not been such a good character to make fun of as Rodney since Rudy in season 1. Rudy still gets quoted routinely [more]

Re: Go Carolyn!

That blue collar alliance is cracked but not broken I bet. One thing about this season is that that alliance has been so firm there has been no room for wheeling/dealing pretty much anywhere.

Go Carolyn!

OK, so I am kinda surprised at there being no posts this AM. That was a pretty great TC. LOVED that Carolyn plaid her idol and sent Dan home. This should place Sierra in the swing vote place. Does she go with Carolyn and Mike, or Rodney and Will? [more]

How Close Was That!

That final was pretty nail biting. Was glad to see Mike win again. TC would have been so boring otherwise!

Re: Poll: Flood Insurance

We also would not have been able to convert our lower level to living space had the house been in the 100 year flood plain. We are just out of it.

Re: Poll: Flood Insurance

I put yes, in case, as our house is just outside the flood plain, though in truth while I have investigated it and don't find the $400 or so premium insane, I have not bought it yet. I will when the downstairs level gets to the point where the floors [more]

Re: Reporting tax on a vacation home.

You may take the mortgage interest deduction and rent your house out tax-free for up to 14 days a year. Not too many other money-making ventures allow you to make money tax-free. You cannot, however, go even one day over the 14-day rule or you [more]

Re: Getting Insurance Claim Fixed

Once you have the insurance company check, the money is yours, and you have done nothing wrong, even if you choose to make no repairs at all. (If it's a roof, and you have later water damage the insurance company will ask for proof that you [more]
