As stupid as the SS office is, they'll probably say 1999-1989= 10 years, where do we send the check? Then about 20 years from now when all are dead, they'll be going: "Wait a minute, that wasn't a...

Had a chain-link fence around the patio/pool area for 30+ years until a tornado took part of it out in 2008. Decided to get fancy and have a wood fence put in because the chain-link didn't provide a...

Wife and I do 75-100 Birthday cards a year, and for the last 25 years I stick a $1 scratch-off ticket in each card.
Funny thing is, nobody ever seems to win. Sister-in-Law claimed she won $50, but...

Think your comment is partly right. But also think it's the cheapness of the industry to save money on inventory. If you have 10 colors, you have to stock 10-times as many toilets. If you have only...

At last a thread that makes me feel vindicated. Bought our house in 1975, and in '77 the garbage disposal died. At the time we were raising 3 kids in diapers and were very poor. Plumber came out and...

I love Velocity too. But you have to realize that most of the shows are very scripted (only got 10 days to completely rebuild a car for auction or whatever--don't think I'd want to own that car!)....

I'd say Keep It. $750k of life insurance for $600 a year sounds like a super deal to me. I just spent that much (yearly) to get a $20k policy--but I'm 66.

Don't know the makes or models, but 2 of my daughters have newish front-loaders. Seems like it takes 45 minutes+ to wash, and the matching dryers that came with them take over 1 1/2 hours to dry--not...

"Better Call Saul" is my new favorite (it's a spin-off from "Breaking Bad"), but it's probably not too obscure.

Always loved the guy because he was almost an identical twin to my step-father who raised me. Every time I'd see those jowls I'd think of Dad.
