Re: selling a timeshare

I believe that SP is talking more about getting out of the ownership business with respect to rental property and preferring to have a landlord responsible for maintenance and repairs rather than being a homeowner after age 75, not how long he [more]

Re: Cost of Brake Job

...if you have monstrous sized rotors behind 20" wheels and you're still warping them, you need to evaluate your driving habits.

I think this is a perfect example of when to call your pilot and have him come pick you up in your private jet.

Re: What has happened to LBYM popularity?

peplow was on tconi's big list of MIA's upthread, re-appeared, and said, "I'm still here. I just don't have so much to add any more." He has plenty of company, many of whom are likely glad for what they gleaned here and consider their [more]

Re: selling a timeshare

My impression is that timeshares are not worth much on the secondary market.

Re: battery booster cables

You couldn't pay me to carry short, thin jumper cables. Well, okay I'd let you pay me. But I'd still carry good ones too. You don't always need the twenty footers, but when you finally do you're going to be pissed you bought the twelve [more]

Re: Installing a walk-in tub/geriatric upgrades

I don't think I could get away with this if I tried. I already have a mature American bride.

Re: Other People's Money...

Last time I bought a car they offered to spread the payments out over 75 months, too! That's 6+ years!

Re: And thinking ahead....

My religion requires me to spend a very paltry amount on bodily post-life stuff, and not to pre-plan it much further than that. Find the cheapest cremation service, put me in a mason jar, and move on with your lives kids. I've got no need for a [more]

Re: Toyota Steering Wheel

Thumbs rest on the face of the protrusions.
