Let's say you make 5M a year.
Life insurance: I can see it if your wife has no income and no skills. So, if you die she and the kids are in trouble. But what if she makes 2M and you make 2M? Why have life insurance?

I'm gonna brine a turkey tonight. It's way too big for a container in the fridge. So, I'm gonna put it in an ice chest and then stick the ice chest outside tonight because the low will be 28 and the morning temp around 32.
No need to stack it in ice or change the water....

| Political Talk|| Rich/Poor Gap + Mandella = Obama - Zach on 12/10/13 at 10:33 am|
I've read at least 7 newspapers (WSJ, NYT, USA) in the last 3 days and the narrative on the opinion pages seems to be copied from a white house memo.
They have taken Obama's Class Warfare Tour and connected it to Mandella's death. It goes like this:

Freedom and Equality are opposite forces. Jesse wants equality. So did Mandella. That can only be achieved by Communism. And it's not pretty....

Jerry, age 72, was killed by a tree. The officer on the scene dutifully noted the description of the killer. It was a Pine, 60 feet tall, 3 feet wide. No weight given but that's gotta be over a ton.

Today I'm making fried shrimp for dinner. As long as I'm using oil for frying I thought I might try frying this last I didn't use in a prior recipe.
