    Damn millennials - is a guitar the only thing you CAN’T rent online now?!?

    So I’ve posted about my (mis)adventures renting outer boat online. We all know about ArBnB/VRBO, Uber, DoorDash, and all the clones bringing us the basics - food and shelter. Then we got Turo - why ride in a strangers car when you can rent it...cause I guess Hertz/Enterprise vehicles are too...

    Another long rant about my "family"...Seriously WTF is wrong with people

    Title says it all - just another rant about family. Sorry, hate posting things like this here - but better in my mind I rant here and blow off a bit of steam here with people who are understanding and its private - than do it amongst people who know me personally and publicly (or worse - just...

    Having a sick pet is absolutely the most helpless feeling...

    One of our poor dogs is sick, and it absolutely sucks knowing there’s not a lot that can be done aside from making her comfortable and easing the pain. Not sure exactly what’s up - started coughing all night a few nights ago (probably allergies) and not sleeping. Had hard time getting around...

    Why does buying a vehicle have to be such a pain?

    Well - we are almost there to Dow 20k...and it don't feel good. Oil now right at 29, silver is well below $13...there are NO safe havens from this storm. I sold 80% of the mutual funds in my 401k Friday - just tired of the choppiness for a while. That said my 401k is probably only 5-10% of...

    Car audio people - need suggestions for pickup

    Been debating trading in my truck. But the cheapness factor is hitting hard, and I am thinking why not just address the things I dislike the most and live with it versus trading in a paid off truck for one with a payment. #1 on my list, radio. What it has now is a GM factory am/fm with 2 in...

    Has the US Fed eliminated all incentive to save

    Serious question - is our Fed trying to eliminate ANY incentive for the average American to save money? I get we live in a growth and service driven economy - we are no longer relatively poor factory workers scraping by and trying to just raise a family in general. We are a more mature...

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/19/us/david-olney-death/index.html Sad news for sure - he was another great songwriter/storyteller. At the same time, what a way to go - seems quite fitting for such a musician. No big scene - just a man and is guitar on a stool, playing and talking and then stops...
