It feels like getting out of prison, the thought of paying them for another 18 months was really gnawing. I'm not so sure how much value added an alarm system is at this point anyway.

Like annuities and paid-off mortgages, it offers peace of mind... but our neighbor's alarm system drives us crazy when their latchkey kids don't properly disarm it.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

Traveling salesmen are a problem. An NP-complete one, to be specific, if I remember my college studies correctly...

"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
