The weather said they think Mt Washington will get down to -100F, Mars average temp might be warmer at -85F, now that is irony...


Vic, I think the -100 was just a "wind chill" estimate. I'm pretty sure it is impossible for the actual air temperature to get that cold on this planet.

I am making a pot of split pea soup right now. I enjoy cooking with lentils, split peas and dried beans, but when doing so I always have the same question. These products come with a warning printed on the label that the product should be rinsed and sorted, to ensure there are no small stones in the package. I have cooked with dried lentils, peas and beans many times in my life and I have never found a stone in any package.

Has anyone ever encountered a stone?

Thank you for the win.

Here is a repeat of the rules

The rules:
1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread. (My preference is for the winner to ask the mods to lock the old thread after the new one is started.)
6. No double posts. Violator buys a round for the house in Rocky's.
7. Additional rule retained from the last round - No posts that APPEAR to be blank - these will be ignored or deleted. (Sig lines do not count as part of a post.)

Sigh....

I'm just getting to be too old and cranky to enjoy modern "action" films.

Angelia, I must be dead, your calculator said I should be dead at age 66 and I'm 72 and in pretty good health except for arthritis, which really sucks.

It seems that I'm going to out-live Ol' Pookers by more than ten years, but then again don't believe everything you read on the internet! There were no questions on this calculator about family cancer history. My family members on both sides are quite cancer-prone.

I got a haircut on Saturday from a lady who has been cutting my hair for years. This woman works very hard, and with great effort she makes a decent living. She works long hours as a hairdresser in nursing homes Mondays through Thursdays and she works Fridays and Saturdays with clients in her private cosmetology practice. The only day she does not work is Sunday.

While getting my haircut, I could not help but notice that she was wearing a gold ring or a gemstone ring on 8 out of 10 of her fingers. She had four diamond earrings of various sizes in each of her ears. If they were fake, I certainly couldn't tell. She was wearing four thick gold bangle bracelets on one of her arms and she had a thick gold chain wrapped around one of her ankles. She drives a car with gold plating around the holes where the tires go. When she goes on vacation, it typically involves a cruise ship.

In contrast, I showed up for my haircut looking like I was there to paint the building.

Guess which one of us grew up comfortably resourced and which one of us grew up poor?

Mother Teresa came from a comfortably resourced family. So did Karl Marx.

I suppose it is possible that some people aren't ever turned on by money, no matter what their circumstances, but I think that growing up resourced during your formative years helps take the edge off.

People manage money so differently, and so much of it is tied to one's childhood. I don't mean this just in terms of how our parents taught us (or didn't teach us) to become fiscally responsible. I think it is much more complicated than that.

If one grows up in a household in which funds are never scarce, I think it is easier to become an adult who can more easily wait before purchasing "stuff", because as a child that person probably inadvertently "learned" that his or her needs will eventually be met.

If one grows up in a household in which funds are frequently scarce, I think it is easier to become an adult who cannot easily wait before purchasing "stuff". As a child that person probably inadvertently "learned" that it is important to get "stuff" when one can, because an opportunity may not arise again for a long time.

Also, let's be realistic, pragmatic and empathetic here. It is easier to save money when your basic wants and needs are comfortably met. People with incomes that do not allow them to comfortably meet their basic wants and needs are at a decided disadvantage when it comes to saving money.

Please let us never be tempted to think that difficulty managing money, difficulty saving money, or a tendency to live outside of one's means when one's means are meager somehow constitutes some sort of a character flaw.

Welcome home!!!

Congratulations on the newest addition to your family.

Eric and I send our condolences to you. It is so hard to lose a sibling. Wishing you peace.

Glad to hear you were unhurt in the auto accident. Cars can be replaced. People and people parts... not so much.

Sorry to hear about the mold and mildew problem. Wishing you perfect health in 2018!
