    Yes, a long time ago. I don't even bother with ebay anymore. CL is also a bit dicey sometimes. I've pretty much given up on it all and just donate stuff to VOA or Salvation Army. It's just not worth...

    Don't bet on Medicare being there in a couple of years. The latest GOP proposal to replace the ACA is, for everyone born after 1959, they will give you a voucher and you can go and buy insurance on...

    You are in charge of your career, no one else. You should always do what is best for you. If that sounds selfish-so be it. Trust me, no one else will be looking out for you, no matter what they tell...

    Keurig 2.0
