No, but since when has that been a justification for not discussing the same old subjects again and again?

I must admit I didn't even notice this was an old thread. It popped up for me under new posts due to the newest post. I read the newest post and then the rest of the thread didn't even realize that the other posts were far older.

Yeah - I know. Those things catch us sometimes. And who knows why a single-time poster decided to unbury this one.

If someone reactivates a thread that is over a year old, they get a warning dialog first and they have to override the warning, which means this poster deliberately brought up a very old thread.

I thought I'd just point it out .

I noticed in our church bulletin on Sunday that Dave's total money makeover deal was being offered for $XX and was being directed/monitored by a financial planner who advertises in the bulletin!

I'll bet that they have a full class. Sounded like a great opportunity...

Do they kiss the attendees first? Or just do it to them sans KY?

Hmmm...so that's what the footnote in the bulletin meant ~ "KY jelly will be provided"

Not that Dave Ramsey and his callers is not a current topic. But why reactivate an ancient thread? Has anything really changed?
2007 was a very good year. The year I retired. And nothing has really changed, I'm still retired.

I guess I'm a bit shocked at the retired Army Major.....uhh, they are pulling close to $36K in a pension per year.....a lot of people would get by just fine on that amount.
Mr Ramsey's advice is good for anyone, however, I find the library a great place to get this information as well. A bit more economical, for sure.
