re: What are you reading now? - RedStickBR
For any fans of French history (with an emphasis of course on Paris), I just finished Alistair Horne's Seven Ages of Paris and it was fantastic. He gets very much into the guts of French culture and history, so maybe not the best introductory book on the topic, but an incredibly rewarding read for s...

re: Best books on Austrian economics? - RedStickBR
I'm reading this now per your suggestion. Only problem with the online version is I want to highlight every other sentence for future reference. This book is remarkably on point....

Why does book board not always appear? - RedStickBR
For instance, on my mobile device, if I am on the political talk board and then click my arrow at the top right to show all boards, all boards are listed except the book board. This could be hurting traffic. ...

Check out The Overcoat by Nicolai Gogol if you haven't read it already. A new favorite of mine: http://www.online-literature.com/gogol/1651/...

re: Where to allocate newly added rollover funds - RedStickBR
I don't think you could go wrong with a good international infrastructure fund. It's a high-yield asset class than can still produce growth stock-like gains but without the risk given the regulated/contracted nature of the cash flows. All the better if you can find one that makes direct investments ...

Looking for a good Electrical Engineering 101 textbook - RedStickBR
I'm not an engineer, but work in an engineering-heavy industry and am trying to bulk up my technical knowledge a bit. Can any of the Double Es in the audience recommend a good starting point? Please note I would like to go the textbook route for self-study purposes. Many thanks....

re: Solution to the monument issue in New Orleans - RedStickBR
The whole thing is such a joke. This was 150 years ago. The world began forgiving the Germans practically before WW2 was even over. That's what wars do - they settle things. I'd happily make a deal with the mayor: clean up the crime to a reasonable first world standard and then take down every p...

Wine Storage / Fridge - RedStickBR
The wife's and my collection is getting large enough that we need a serious storage and temperature solution. We don't have a basement or cellar and aren't looking to do any renovations, so we need a standalone solution capable of storing 75+ bottles. Anyone have any recommendations? TIA...

re: Obama is back....more proof he is bad for America. - RedStickBR
It requires so much courage that he had to pass the bill in the dead of night, did nothing while it unraveled into disaster, and then had the audacity to make it difficult for the next administration to do anything to change it. Obama may be the absolute worst lesson in leadership we've ever seen...
