re: Tell me about Gerbers life insurance plan - ScottieP on 5/31/18 at 2:39 pm

At 18 the coverage automatically doubles with no increase in premium. At 21 the policy is transferred into their name at which they are guaranteed up to 10x the...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Broom finish on brick - ScottieP on 5/29/18 at 9:44 pm
To each there own obviously, but I never understood why you pay $400-500 per thousand for bricks only to cover them with mortar. Brick layers love it though cause they can be messy with their mortar joints. If you want to clean the top layer go to a brick company and buy a cleaning solution. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

[quote]you must also compare the salary pool available to them. [/quote] This is what it all boils down to. Per NCAA rule baseball can only have 3 paid coaches.

re: Anyone listen to Don Debuc this morning? (River flood info) - ScottieP on 4/23/18 at 8:50 pm
Yep it’s a called a stage discharge relationship. But it isn’t static. The relationship can change due to fill and scour. The Corp is bound by Congessional law to not open Morganza until the flow past Baton Rouge is 1.5million cfs. In 2011 the water was about to overtop the morganza spillway bay...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

So back to the GC making $75K on a house. He may charge that but he isn't making it, unless he has enough money to finance his lot purchases and builds with his own money. If he doesn't have the $300K in the bank at the start he will pay interest on loans to fund the lot purchase and house build...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
