re: Favorite old commercials - Raleigh Tiger
Talking old commercials. Last night the commercial "how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?" played on one of the major networks. That commercial was playing when I was a kid back in the early 70s....

re: Name a better state in the south, or period, than North Carolina - Raleigh Tiger
Charlotte is nice but it's a big spread out city with traffic being an issue, but they are steady adding more lanes to the Interstates, so that is geting better. Raleigh is a great city, perfect size, easy to get around in and close proximity to RTP, but is gradually being taken over by yankees, ...

re: Costco or sams - Raleigh Tiger
I had both up until a couple months ago. Costco probably has more, but it's a lot more crowded and getting gas there is a royal pain in the ass. Much quicker and easier to get in and out of Sam's. Getting in and out of the parking lot at Cosco's at the one here in Raleigh is a pain also. Gas pump li...

re: Has anyone’s workplace switched to WFH permanently? - Raleigh Tiger

re: Is there a chance any of your companies switch to being more open about work at home? - Raleigh Tiger
I was already working from home three days a week before. I could work from home even more, but I don't want to. I like getting into the office a couple days a week to interact with co-workers. It's good to sociallize. Plus, my wife (no pics) busts into my home office multiple times a day with so...

re: Millennial wealth is still lagging behind previous generations at the same age - Raleigh Tiger
Part of the problem is like someone else said. A lot more going to college now than use to, which delays earning power. Many boomers went straight into blue collar jobs from high school, giving them a minimum four year head start on college bound people. Millenials don't want to do blue collar w...

re: ATT 5Ge in BR terrible for anyone else? - Raleigh Tiger
Here's a little tidbit for you. It's not really 5G. It's still 4G under a different name. Plus, unless you have a 5G capable phone and on a 5G plan, you're not going to get 5G. Especially from ATT, who doesn't have 5G capability yet....
