re: Looking for opinion on Brigsten's and Clancy's in NOLA - Dave Worth on 6/8/17 at 4:14 pm
I'll also add that Brigsten's was the best New Year's Eve meal I've had out. We have some friends that are regulars there which puts them on a special list. I believe they do 2 seatings that night and we had the first. Total cost is $100 per person. That came with a ton of options. The first ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Anybody know anyone who said screw the rat race and moved to the islands? - Dave Worth on 6/8/17 at 4:06 pm
My plan is to retire early to a small village in Italy. All I need is decent internet access and power and I can be happy. I'm 41 now and would like to be done working by 55. Shouldn't be a problem financially. I think we could go as early as 50 but that's cutting it a little too tight. Things c...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Can a dealer give you a trade in value without seeing the car in person? - Dave Worth on 6/8/17 at 11:26 am
I tried this when I bought a new car recently. The best they could do was ask me the Kelly Blue Book questions and give me the range assuming I answered truthfully. Not much help since I already did that. The person did tell me that they pay better than any other place she had worked at. In th...

re: Food stamp, WIC users offered cheaper Amazon Prime membership - Dave Worth on 6/6/17 at 2:55 pm
Interesting discussion. Couple of points... Amazon is a business that can do what it wants. They've identified this is a way to either increase profits or to feel like they're doing some good. The financial risk is entirely on them so I support them doing what they want. I'm not poor and I ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: CPAP Usage - Dave Worth on 6/6/17 at 10:43 am
I started using one about a year ago. There was a thread on this site that showed where you could order the Philips Dreamstation without a prescription. I got it simply through Amazon.

It's not aliens. There was a race of beings before current man. They were similar to the Roman gods (I think...one was named Minerva and another Juno). I believe they created man and eventually went to war. Then a solar flare wiped out most of everything and current man was left standing. AC I ...

[quote]What does cost and labor/wages have to do with people not coming in for lunch as often?

About 2 weeks after Katrina we were cleaning out my father in law's house. He had some water in so we were ripping out his carpet.
