Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

So, slightly different financial topic: I am in the process of opening up a small home equity line on my house. I'm doing the minimum amount you can do, $25k, just to have it as a "just in case". So, I was on the phone with the loan officer just now and she was walking me through the detai...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

It's down under 50 points, which, at this point, I consider to be just about breakeven. Nice job staring the market down, dad.

Re: 2018 NFL Season

Meanwhile, at the end of the KC-Baltimore game, towards the end of the game there was a play I saw where the KC receiver doesn't make a catch and he's wearing the Baltimore DB like a cape - and no flag. It would be one thing if there was some semblance of consistency, but there just is not. It seems...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

Man, sinking like a stone. Under 24,000 and about 450 lost on the day. It's not even 11:15 yet so a lot can happen, but, wow, not good.

Re: Movies

Wife and I saw Boy Erased on Saturday night. It's based on the book of the same name and it's an semi-autobiographical account (I think the movie takes some artistic liberties, like changing the guys name) of writer Gerrard Conley. Conley has been writing for the past 10 years or so about his experi...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

The jobs numbers last week came in under what was expected. I also saw reports last week that said real wages are down due to inflation. And, there is still an expectation that a lot of people are in for some surprises when they file their 2018 taxes and will end up owing money next year. And then t...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

Harold Baines and Lee Smith elected into the Hall of Fame by the veterans committee (known as the Today's Game Era Committee for some strange reason). Lee Smith and his 478 saves are an arguable choice but I think it's defensible. When you look at his career numbers, it's tough to find a reliever wi...
