If you really want to find them, you can find them by limiting "Best Of" to one folder

True. I've always used "Best of" to find interesting things in places I'm not otherwise following. Some of the boards [more]

Re: x-post: response to frustration "Best o

I find it amazing how upset people get over a silly "Best of" board on a finance website. Seriously, is this what upsets people?

I don't. Of the 25 posts on the "best of" list right now, only two appear to have [more]

Re: Ever get one of those fake IRS calls?

Had a call this morning that was supposedly from Social Security but was the same number the IRS scammers were using. Supposedly, I am eligible for some additional social security income, but there was a form mailed to me that needed to be returned [more]

Love it! I've used a pedometer for years, but when the last one died, got the Fitbit because it's easier. I like the combo of the pedometer, watch, HR Monitor and surprising to me the sleep tracker on the [more]

Dear Fitbit:

No, I don't want to do another 289 steps right now. I've already done 26,711 steps today.

But, thanks anyway.

Re: You're Never Too Old

I've said for a long time: This is how old I am. This is how I'm acting. I am acting my age.

That said, 13 training miles tomorrow at 6 AM and four half marathons next weekend. That will get me to 59 lifetime Halfs all in the last 11 [more]

Re: SS at age 62

I started SS at 62 because I needed the money and my unemployment was running out. Ended up taking a part time job, made too much money and had to pay back some of the SS that I had received. When I reached SSNRA they recalculated and the money I had [more]

Re: Wishes ...Related to Wealth Thread

Passionate probably goes to far, but at 75, I still work a part time seasonal job because it's fun and I'm good at it. Sure there's the usual corporate crap going on, but I can ignore most of it because I don't need to work. When it [more]

Hit send to soon. I've heard they don't do well on thick pile rugs, but don't have any so don't know. It doesn't like the throw rug in the bathroom, but I just hang that over the side of the tub. I also have to pick up a couple of [more]

Re: cleaning

I recently purchased the Roomba 650. Not the newest version, but it does a good job for me. It seems to randomly wander around, but also covers the rooms I want it to do. When it's done, it does go back to the docking station. Takes a little over [more]

Re: LBYM Guru speaks

$10 a day would be $300 a month or $3600 per year. It looks like I spent a bit more than $2700 at the grocery store in the last 12 months. Mostly at Fred Meyer (Kroger) but also Safeway and a couple of smaller, local stores. For the equivalent 12 [more]
