Re: New car and new insurance for a new driver?

My son has never owned a car and is living in a different state from my family. He is planning to buy a new car, (actually we will buy it for him), I would like to know how he can get an insurance when he goes to buy a car from a dealer. My understanding is that, without a car, he cannot get an ins...

Re: House centipedes in an apartment

I have a standing "kill on sight" order for any house centipedes. I don't care how many other bugs they eat, they creep me out.

Re: Hilton location - can only be called from landline?

Why not just call the central Hilton number and have them connect you to the hotel?

Re: Australia Trip - 2021

I would agree with extending your trip. Australia is basically as big as America, and getting to Uluru takes a lot of time. We skipped it and did Sydney/Port Douglas instead.

Re: Neighbors sump pump pipe on my property

New wrinkle: It turns out my neighbor placed his sump pump output on the adjacent property under construction, so it will definitely need to move.

Looking for advice on this situation. Neighbor installed a new sump pump outlet on his property, the water should be going into a new storm drain installed on an adjacent property. Unfortunately, the adjacent site is under construction and silt fences are blocking this flow of water and pushing it o...

Re: Regrets from canceling whole life insurance policy - anyone out there?

No regrets. My wife and I were advised to buy whole life from our financial adviser, they were super expensive.

Eventually canceled these policies, bought 30 year level term, and never looked back.

Re: Prepaid car maintence -- Mazda -- HCOL

I'd be shocked if any new Mazda required over $1000 in maintenance in the first 3 years, especially at such low yearly mileage. We own a Mazda 3 and a CX-9 (both 2 years old with low miles) and have very low maintenance costs. Just oil changes, filter changes, and tire rotations. Ok, the Mazda 3 bat...
