It was fantastic; could not put it down. I highly recommend it. Anyway, it discusses the technical conference Valery Legasov a...

re: Best rates on new vehicles? - 385 Tiger
Is 2.94 the best rate you've found? Has anyone recently refinanced an existing loan. I purchased a new vehicle last year and financed it to manage cash flow. I've been prepaying pretty steadily and am well in the black on the vehicle. I'm thinking about refinancing to shave some interest off over th...

(work) from home phone - 385 Tiger

re: Louisiana State Budget & TOPS - 385 Tiger
If that's the case, it raises the question of what will the Universities cut if TOPS isn't funded and, by extension, there's no money to redistribute directly to the schools....

re: Louisiana State Budget & TOPS - 385 Tiger
I feel your pain. I can't help but wonder if cutting TOPS will be sufficient. I could realistically see the cuts running deeper, but I don't know what that might entail....

re: Louisiana State Budget & TOPS - 385 Tiger
I agree that the state has too many four year institutions to support, but I think there is no chance any of them will get the ax. To much politics involved....

Louisiana State Budget & TOPS - 385 Tiger
With everything shut down and all the money being directed to health care, is there any chance TOPS survives the virus? I can't imagine the State's budget will be in good shape when this is over, and it seems that education may be the only place for the Legislature to cut....

TLH in the energy sector - 385 Tiger
I have positions in XOM and BP that are down 40-50%. I have been slowly working my way out of single stock positions over t hbk e last few years and into ETFs. I like the energy sector generally given it's high dividend, and while I'm not worried about XOM, BP bothers me a bit. I'm thinking about se...

If it's a "forever" home, run conduit drops from your attic into the coax/media wall box. That way, whenever you need to add or change something, you can wire it in 5 minutes....

re: Do you know anyone that Cc:’s themself on every email?... - 385 Tiger
My favorite is the older individuals and very insecure younger individuals who put every honorific, club, Order, and membership they have in their signature block.
