Aug 18th 2012 12:39PM May I suggest to you Dave that you actually do some research and spend some time in prison, or at least eat some prison meals for a bit, then perhaps you will become more than any other person on the street who may have an opinion or those that compare something to something they have never really experienced, versus passing yourself of as anything more.
Basically what I am saying is based on this article, why would anyone care what you think?
Aug 18th 2012 12:16PM Absolutely agree with you. Embassy Suites breakfasts and happy hour are the exception to the rule. Their omlettes are made to order as are pancakes and they will also cook eggs fresh for you if you do not want them from buffet.
Always my first choice in business travel even though I have/in Marriot points program
Apr 6th 2012 9:57AM Well yes and no. To me it is like the argument as to whether the civial war was about slavery or states rights. The real answer is it was both. The state's right to have slavery.
In this case it is whether a symbol reflecting religion on the door os OK verson on the frame which is dictated by her religion.
I do not believe this made it OK for anything to go on the frame, just recognizing that if you allow christians to display symbols of their faith you need to accomodate those of other faiths who wish to do the same. Door versus frame is really semantics I think
Just my view any way
Feb 18th 2011 5:44PM As previously stated, who would spend a million dollars to rebuild a 200k or even 500k house? That's about like exercising stock options when the stock has fallen.
Also seems to me the mortgage company's only interest is what the mortgage balance is. Beyond that it is really none of their concern.
Sep 24th 2010 11:47PM Well said and hopefully the much younger Nick Jonas will also continue raising awareness. Never really a Poison fan seeing him several times on Apprentice, especially when his daughter faced Diabetes too made me respect the guy.
To address other posts, maybe I am swayed because have had diabetes since age 12 (53 now) and know a little of what he has had to face, but in todays worse, if you meet your maker and the worse they can nail you for is a cheesy hat band...seems like you have done well.
Jun 2nd 2010 9:52AM At Pauls age this is no big deal. Springsteen has used a teleprompter or lyric charts taped to stage floor for years and years
May 21st 2010 9:40PM I always have to decide how to deal with this situation. I am diabetic and neither drink nor eat desserts so my bill, especially at dinner is usually cheaper but all my friends know the situation and depending on the group I will sometimes just pony up regardless of fairness
Of course at business dinners I just order the porterhouse or crabcakes and still end up cheaper than my cohorts who get sirloins and drink :-)
May 20th 2010 10:00AM I have looked at at lot of "retirement calculators" and they all do seem a bit high. For instance I live in the VA burbs of DC and if I want to stay here after I retire it will cost a lot more than if I moved to an area with cheaper housing etc. That decision alone impacts the numbers.
Also when they ask you to enter your current income, few say anything about bakcing out the money you put in your 401K and savings.
Obviously if I am not spending or even "seeing" it now since it is automaticcaly pulled from my check, I am living on less than my salary and and since I am over 55 I can stow away over 20K a year.
Bottom line is that these are guidelines, which seem a bit high but we all need to do our own planning and act accordingly.
May 6th 2010 6:27AM I grew up in Arlington but 69 was just a few years before I was old enough to attend concerts. Just curious where they played.
Apr 12th 2010 5:28PM Someone mentioned Atkins, which does make me wonder about the amount of carbs. It does list calories but how much of that is from fat?
Too many calories regardless but diabetics need to know the carbs to know how much Insulin to take
