    It's a fun day of back-to-back-to-back Zoom meetings
    You need to inject some of the Friday night Zoom topics.  Would definitely liven them up, I'm sure.

    My wife: "How many more commercials is Joe Namath going to be in?"

    Me: "How do you know who Joe Namath is? Was he a guest on Full House when you watched it as a kid?"

    My wife: "Wasn't he a NBA player?"




    if someone could go back in time and shoot him so i didnt have to suffer thru all the commercials i would be obliged ;)
    Congrats on the 420th post.

    interesting, buy a new fridge every ten years instead of changing the 3 dollar bulb twice every 50 years or so =) my newest fridge is around a 1975, the older one is maybe 1940 and has no bulb which i guess solves a major problem =)
    The savings on a $3 bulb is irrelevant compared to what it costs to run a pair of refrigerators from the 40s and 70s. 

    Unplugged a ca1980 fridge and the bill went down $30/mo. New one is half that. 


    so how much is the kitchen remodel cost when the new fridge dies every ten years and the new fridge does not fit, never mind the cost of the fridge or the repair bill for the included ice maker. i only use about 250kwh per month on average which is pretty much nothing
    If you can build a shower in an attic, you can probably make a fridge fit. 

    Regardless. You are bragging about saving three bucks on a lightbulb. 

    Whether you buy a new fridge or not, that’s a weird thing to flex on. 


    without lifting a finger im pretty much breaking even.  and im living with an unfinished bathroom, i would expect to live with an unfinished kitchen at home and at camp as well if i replaced the fridge. a new fridge with a deep door would be nice but it would hit the stove at home and a support column at camp =) plastic shelving would never survive the animals at work, those metal shelves in the old fridge are almost undestructable, almost

    ten years from now i could show him the old pvc drain from the kitchen sink i just rebuilt, its in the crate with all the other pvc fittings. funny thing is the prior owner glued a piece on one of the fittings that was leaking maybe 20 years ago. will see if the new stuff holds up, it seems they changed the pvc cement again and it doesnt seem they changed it in a good way

    I don’t understand your comment about this being a racket, as in there is something inherently nefarious or unethical about this.  We all pay taxes to fund public education.  Government dictates what they deliver.  This isn’t a profitable service, it’s not a restaurant trying to change you for meals you may or may not eat.

    Private school is a choice, an option.  Some are profit-oriented, some are not.  Wide range there, but they’re all a choice, an alternative to public school.  Just like taxes supporting public schools don’t go away regardless of what the schools are able to deliver (eg pandemic conditions), this school is saying they need their $ to keep the lights on, cost of choosing them and signing up.  Take it or leave it.

    And seriously Steve, if your real answer is “I don’t know, I was just making a flippant comment and generally just buy into conspiracy theories” that’s fine too.

    Thanking whoever was looking over me this morning as my rear left truck tire had a blowout just seconds after exiting the highway. I felt the rear end get squirrely when exiting the off ramp and knew I didn't have much time as the tire wasn't happy. Not knowing the area that well my best bet was to get off the main road as it had no shoulder and constant traffic on it. In that split second my wife goes, "Look Discount tire!" The very first exit off the highway. I threw my truck in neutral and coasted the best I could into the parking lot.

    That tire could have blown anywhere the previous 15 miles going 70 mph on the highway but it held off until the exit ramp and not even a half block from a tire shop that I could roll into. I'm feeling very thankful right now. 


    Buy a lotto ticket!  Glad it all worked out well.

    That’s the choice, right?  Keep the kids in private school or bounce them to public.  I’m sure you’re still paying taxes for public schools, regardless of any impact to services they are able deliver.
    Absolutely correct @Legume, it’s our choice. Check out public school rankings in Louisiana and then you’ll see why the choice is as an easy one. There are 5 private catholic elementary schools going pre-k thru 8th. Cost separation between the 5 is about $500 annually. Just dreaming of what I could do with $16,000+ cash a year for the next 14 years of my life

    When we were house shopping one of my wife's co-workers said "You'll pay for school, it'll be tuition or mortgage/taxes, but you'll pay for it."  We're paying tuition (and I'd happily jump at your $8k/kid), because we bought in an area that isn't zoned for great schools.  If we were in a better zoned area in our county, our home price would probably be 1.5-2 times higher, and if we were one county over, in one of the best districts in the country, it would probably be 3x higher.

    No idea who Joe Namath is. I'm guessing a sports celebrity, but don't care enough to fire up the Googlz =)

    @caliking - I can fill in the blanks with Joe Namath Friday night.  Sports celebrity (likely gave the fledgling AFL it's jump start to parity with the NFL) is correct but just as a teaser- a C grade movie star, linked here:

    I'm not posting the above video, I'm posting it for the commercial that starts it off.  These guys are about as enthusiastic as our friend in Chicago, and I don't remember this particular brand being mentioned before.

    Regarding sports figures, I, the ass**** I was with, and some other guy got into an elevator in Philadelphia, and **** started chatting with him, asked for a picture with him, and then started blah-blaring his life story.  The guy hurried off in the lobby, I guess it was Wayne Gretzky.  I was clueless.

    @Botch my assessment of the  above commercial is that they can't hold a candle to @dmchicago nd his enthusiasm.  I know he is in sales but he puts those guys to shame.  Gotta appreciate the hug shot just the same.
