Re: Reich: Alternate Route To Middle Class

Community colleges, under-appreciated crown jewels of America's feeble attempts at equal opportunity, COULD be developing these curricula.

Re: OT "severe weather"

It was very strangely warm for us. We were calling it Junuary. Our winters have southerly flow and it was positively tropical this winter with little rain here on the extreme northcoast of California. Now that the winds have tuned to a more northerly [more]

Re: Cable TV 'bundles'

When you say "bundle" I was thinking of the bundled Phone, TV and Internet bundle that my cable company offers. Cable Internet is the only option I have for high speed.

Impending Doom

Seems that the prospect of raising rates is not the impending doom that everyone expects. Maybe it's because more than widows and retirees would like to see a return on loaned out money.

Re: boomers inheriting their parents' homes

Re: OT vehicle reliability

Every 10 year old, used, high mile Toyota truck I have bought has gotten close to 300K. Wouldn't buy a new one though. Come to think of it, wouldn't buy any vehicle new.

Really hope this is just a coding or formatting problem. Couldn't even reply to the OP as the reply button was blocked. Extremely annoying.

Re: Stock buy backs killing economy

Sometimes I come across a great business like Trader Joes (happy employees, good products and prices) and want to buy their stock. Guess what? They are private.

Re: Poll: Should the US legalize marijuana?

Sorry for the late reply. No and no one I know. As with most reality shows, they are very staged and skewed.

Re: Poll: Beef, is it what's for dinner?

We are blessed in my area to have much local produce as well as being able to buy meat at the farmer's market. Almost starved driving I 80 through the mid west. Corn and sunflowers as far as the eye could see but the produce at the grocery stores was [more]

Re: Poll: My two largest expenses are...

Food (like most of the rest of the world) and projects whether it's the old house I own or my motorcycles. Also buy vintage bikes and stringed instruments but those have good resale so aren't true expences.

Re: Poll: Beef, is it what's for dinner?

Can't vote. Omnivore (call me vegtables and meat with some grains and potatoes on the side) However, I quickly turn vegetarian if I don't know the source of the meat and it needs to be grass fed or pretty close from small, preferably local producers.

Re: Do Building Energy Codes Save?

This looks like a half-ass study! The study should have looked at total energy - not just electricity.

Exactly, in places like ours where there is no natural gas, we heet with wood. Electricity is too expensive.
