Kudos to you (and your spouse), Dr. OP!! You're thinking about everything the right way, and have done and are doing all the right things, to secure your (eventual) family's future!

For example, colorized belts were invented to make money. Yes, that is one reason I hate it, you have to pay for belt promotions every 2 months, the...

Re: Ladies: bra shopping question

I think I followed most of the links, and found plenty of wireless bras, just not ones that looked appealing. What I noticed most were sites that had like 400 bras and filters, but none of the filter options were Not stiff cup, etc. :-) It's too bad there isn't something like a 3D printer that coul...

Re: Mega Downsize....

Thank you for the link to Freecycle. We didn't know about this, and there is a list nearby. For now, the lesser items we left by the curb vanished within about 2 hours both days. Glad someone could find a use for those things. But we'll take a better look at Freecycle for a lot of other things. RM ...
