Delta Rewards - Furbs311
Not sure if this belongs here or the travel board but-- I started a new job around April this year that's pretty heavy on the international travel. I'm 1900 MQMs away from Diamond on Delta. Don't really care about status except for the international upgrade certificates you get when you reach Diamon...

re: Storm Aftermath - Hurricane Matthew will be Retired - Furbs311
Hope it comes back soon. We aren't going back to Bluffton till we have power. From the videos and pictures outside my neighborhood, there's probably at least a mile of lines on the ground. Imagine it will be the better part of a week ...

re: Storm Aftermath - Hurricane Matthew will be Retired - Furbs311
Things are getting a bit tense in Bluffton/Hilton Head. Damage is pretty bad and extensive, curfew from 7-7. They have sheriff/national guard parked on the county line on all roads and aren't letting anyone in, regardless of proof of residency. Hundreds of people spent the night on the side of hwy 2...

re: Storm Aftermath - Hurricane Matthew will be Retired - Furbs311
It's Daufuski Island. No bridge, boat only access. Apparently some are staying even though reports are the whole thing could flood. I live near there just outside of Hilton Head but took the family to NC. Hoping it turns away from the Lowcountry ...

re: Anyone with PVC's? Heart related. - Furbs311
I take a low dose antenelol for them. Stress is what does it for me. I eventually want to work my way off of it, but honestly I don't feel any side effects and it's been working for the past few months. ...

re: Hermine Damage on Prospective Home - Furbs311
Good info, thanks. I think this is the route we are going to go down. After talking to my realtor (don't worry, he's one of the good ones) he suggested the owner wouldn't likely accept an offer contingent on the roof being fixed AND my house selling. I think I'll list my current house and if I get u...

re: Hermine Damage on Prospective Home - Furbs311
For sure. But for example, the far left hand side is the master bath, which we wanted to gut, expand anyway. So the insurance company will rebuild on the original footprint and we'd just tear it all out. Guess I'm looking for a way to kill two birds.. Make necessary repairs AND renovate. ...

Hermine Damage on Prospective Home - Furbs311
Wife and I have been very interested in a vacant property that needs complete updating but is in a great neighborhood with a the size lot we've been looking for. Ideally we'd want to add an addition or carriage house for an additional guest bedroom, and I've spent the last week talking with a mortga...

Accountants: Corporate Revenue Recognition - Furbs311
I work for a division of a Fortune 500 company and the big talk around the office is how new GAAP standards will change the way we recognize revenue next year (from Google, I assume this is FASB 606 rule). Our company makes high dollar machinery that's paid for by several progress payments over the ...

re: Covenant (Division III) forfeits championship match instead of playing on Sunday - Furbs311
I'm a member of the PCA which is the denomination affiliation of Covenant College. Apparently it's always been their policy not to play on Sunday, so I respect them for not caving on their convictions. That said, I've never quite understood the dogma surrounding the sabbath, particularly since bibli...
