re: What are you reading now? - RedStickBR on 5/29/17 at 6:32 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Best books on Austrian economics? - RedStickBR on 5/29/17 at 6:21 pm
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....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Why does book board not always appear? - RedStickBR on 5/29/17 at 9:04 am
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Where to allocate newly added rollover funds - RedStickBR on 5/27/17 at 10:32 pm
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 ...

I have not, but am on a Russia kick having just finished the short story The Overcoat and currently reading Gorky Park. I may add it to the list, although I feel I should get a few Russian classics under my belt first....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Looking for a good Electrical Engineering 101 textbook - RedStickBR on 5/27/17 at 10:10 pm
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....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Solution to the monument issue in New Orleans - RedStickBR on 5/25/17 at 6:44 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Wine Storage / Fridge - RedStickBR on 5/8/17 at 7:20 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (9)

re: Obama is back....more proof he is bad for America. - RedStickBR on 5/8/17 at 6:36 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
