Re: Gift of Equity Question

MYSTERY SOLVED

So it was not a matter of the prospective purchasers/renters being scamsters. It was more like being confused - they apparently downloaded the Real Estate Contract form from the internet and tried to be their own lawyers when [more]

Re: Gift of Equity Question

Thanks to the people who replied. Yes it sounded scam-y to me as well which is why I posted. The entity getting scammed though sounds likes it's the bank and yet according to the would be purchasers it is the bank that put together this deal. I took [more]

Re: issues charging adult child rent?

My 18 year old daughter who still has a year of HIGH SCHOOL left pays 1/3 of the utilities and 1/7 of the grocery bill. She does not pay rent because there is no mortgage to pay. She clears @ $1000 a month so after she pays her share of the bills, [more]

Re: New motor tech

BlueGrits - were you ever in Houston working shuttle software? The reason I ask is I had a relative who worked shuttle software, even got a Snoopy for it and I seem to remember that group of people as being pretty tight.

Re: Retirement

I took to retirement like a duck to water. Yep. The thing is I have always had a huge backlog of projects, ideas, books to read, things to do - it couldn't be sweeter to finally have the free time to tackle them. Even better than the free time though [more]

Future Babble by Dan Gardner

I just finished this book and found it thoroughly enjoyable. The book examines why the "experts" who predict the future are almost always invariably wrong; the more certain they are the more likely they are to be wrong - conversely, the [more]

Trump

Ya know - in retrospect I haz the great sadness that Trump's campaign imploded so early into the merriment. I was very much looking forward to the hilarity that would ensue as campaigning progressed (i.e. the reactions and articles and quotes that I [more]

Re: "brain droppings"

Read a couple of chapters in "Future Babble" by Dan Gardner. About halfway through the book and think that the core message is that history doesn't actually repeat itself, it's just one damn thing after another. Or something to that effect.

Re: Camille Paglia takes on Jon Stewart and othe

I'm pretty sure Paglia would shred Coulter before they ever made it into the pit and then use a splinter from Coulter's breast bone to pick her teeth clean. That being said I have never forgiven Paglia for writing what had to be the most [more]

Re: good cop story

Well once they actually kill people then they usually do get weeded out. But my point is - before they reach that point - before some psycho cop actually loses it big time - the people who work with him or her have to know that that particular cop is [more]

Re: Not buying anything new...

When I read the link I idly wondered if she bought new parts to repair stuff. Probably because I was on my way out the door with a metal mender (bought new) to repair a split garden hose. Maybe it's because I caught the lbym/simplicity bug so many [more]

Re: good cop story

I don't think that any rational person doubts that there are good, even excellent police officers on just about every police force in the country. Indeed I entertain the fond hope that the vast majority of police officers are good people doing a very [more]

Re: Question about Laptop

Also, aside from décor, is there anything useful she can to with the bits and pieces besides décor? Something within the range of competency of a kid, please, and somewhat educational (my wish not hers). Or are the insides just toast?

Re: Defense against drones?

Well. Yeah I would of shot at it as well if I had a shot gun. Sounds like a reasonable response using a reasonable weapon (i.e. buckshot doesn't travel).
