re: GT Goodyear - lsewwww
Got in at 15.78 on HSA and 15.94 on Brokerage. It was the last of the bargains I could find. It shot up to 20-ish after I bought in March, then tanked recently and then spiked today. I only bought because I was under the false impression there was a dividend. That is suspended. Doh! I would rea...

re: Anyone else have any irrational fears? - lsewwww
I've had the same dream for the last 20 years or so- a Russian heavy bomber crashes into our garden and either kills me or my mother. Had the same dream 5-6 times. So i get nervous around russian aircraft. Totally fine for the blue angels at the end of the runway though....

re: Throwback to when airline travel wasn’t trashy - lsewwww
My father flew for TWA for 29 years- Convair 880, 727, 707 and L1011. My sister and I flew alot as kids and things have changed ALOT. We always had to dress up. Always flew stand-by. But the service.... I remember a flight we took from St Louis to Boston on Easter of 1982 or 1983 on a 747. We ha...

re: Travis Roy dies at 45 - lsewwww
He was exactly the same age as I am and played hockey 2 towns away from where I played hockey, but he was a lot better. Playing for a BU team that was on the beginning of greatness and sparring with UMaine and Walsh in the early 90s, but neither team broke out until 93. Both teams were loaded and ...

I'm sure earl campbell has some football injuries but apparently he was born with spinal stenosis. I always thought his knees and hips had been destroyed.

re: Can we discuss the original Mad Max (1979) - lsewwww
I always interpreted it as Australia got lucky- In 1979, who would want to nuke Australia? They didnt have any nuclear weapons. The US wouldnt nuke them. Russia shouldn't need to nuke them. But they would be one of the only ones left with little outside resources. Just them on the island. ...

Bernie Carbo "I was totally wasted when I went to the ballpark," Carbo says. "I would say I was at my worst." The night before, Carbo had become an instant and enduring hero for Red Sox Nation -- hitting a game-tying, three-run home run with two outs in the eighth inning to set the Fenway sta...

re: Question for the financial guys re Roth IRA - lsewwww
For gods sake dont let it ride! You've lost like 12% annual gains plus the compounding over the years. If you maxed out the IRA thats 5 years at 5500 and 1 year at 6k, thats a 33,500 principal that should be up to about 39k if it had been in VTSAX. ...

re: Question for the financial guys re Roth IRA - lsewwww
Something is very wrong. What is the money in? For example, Vanguard automatically puts contributions in a money market paying like 1% annual. (est). If you want it to grow, you then need to trasnfer/buy /transact into something more "growy" like VTSAX or VTBLX. Many other mutual funds you can p...

re: Questions for OT hay farmers. - lsewwww
1. Yields are wildly variable. On some of our fields, putting down some 45-0-0 will double yields. Soil type affects yields, as nutrients and water holding capacity are huge factors. Type of grass affects yields. 2. We do 2 cuts on our good fields, 1 on the fields that dont get fertilized and som...

Doing vaccines on a bull in Claiborne Parish. Some big horned mofo turns around in the chute and I was right behind him about to close the gate. He charged me as I tried to run, got trapped between gate and fence too tall to jump and inexplicably the bull stopped like 2 feet away- He lost sight of...
