I agree with Aldi...

An Aldi recently opened up in a neighboring town. It is a smaller store in terms of square footage compared to many of the neighboring supermarkets, and I can't get everything I need there, but what...

My car is 14. It is nearing 200,000 miles. It has always been dealer maintained at the suggested intervals. The repairs have been getting more expensive. In November, it will go in for inspection. If...

i thought NJ was bad...

I could never be a single person living in CA on a teacher's salary. Real estate in NJ is high too, but I don't think that bad as what you posted. I live in a dated condo, but it is paid for. When I...

Last week I received two scam calls. One was professing to be Apple calling about my "compromised cloud account". The other was from some company I never heard of telling me they were going to charge...

So sorry...

I am retired now, and like the other posters on here, I experienced both being loved by my earlier principals and not liked by my last one. In fact, not having the desire to work for her played a...

I hope tomorrow is better...

Maybe the reason so many of us are making mistakes is that we are being asked to do too much in too short a period of time. Being at two schools accentuates the problem. I do not know how people who...

Made it a couple of days ago

I used a recipe from Pinterest. It used vegetable broth, 2 cans of tomatoes, tomato paste, some water, small tubular pasta, 2 different types of beans, carrots, celery, onion and spinach. I am...

I like James Grippando, Michael Connelly, John Lescroart. J.A. Jance and Philip Margolinís books. I also enjoyed Linda Fairsteinís Alexandra Cooper books. I like David Baldacci too, but his books are...

Very sorry...

Glad you and your wife are okay, but very sorry for the damage. I hope the appraiser gives you a good settlement of the cost.

As I was reading your post, I remembered that peanuts are not truly nuts, they are a member of the legume family, along with peas and sweet potatoes. That might also explain the sweet potato chips...

That's great...

I will not be voting in person this year as my state is restricting in person voting to those with disabilities. There are drop boxes in 18 communities in my county, so it will be placed in there...

Totally agree...

I could not imagine the pressure of having to be observed virtually. There are so many potential issues that could crop up, and impossible to see what is coming sometimes. And teaching both virtually...

Retire if you can...

Definitely look at your income, but as you say, one year isn't going to make a huge difference in your pension. I went out two years before I originally planned, and it did not make a significant...

Retiring doctors...

My gynecologist and my pcp both retired. When my gynecologist retired, I went with a doctor many of my colleagues used. He was highly rated, his office was very convenient and he took my insurance....

Glad itís fixed

I will be having two visits from my cable company on Wednesday. One is for internet issues and one for my cable box. Apparently, one person cannot do both in one visit. This all started when my cable...

Local nurseries...

I like to support small businesses, so I have gone to local nurseries. If you have issues, you then could directly ask them for help/explanations.

Very true...

I see pictures on FB of people of all ages hanging out in close proximity totally unmasked. My retired teacher group has been on Zoom, but last month, any of us who wanted to meet for outdoor dining...

It is frustrating that people do not take this seriously. They were just showing a college party where one of the participants had tested positive a week ago, was supposed to be quarantining, and he...

Retired 2 years early...

I did not have to make a quick decision, but I changed my original plan. I wanted to work to my full social security age of 66, but after I turned 64, I had enough. The workload and stress were...

Flew them in December...

They were coming into Newark to replace Southwest and advertised really cheap fares to introduce their routes. What we found were lots of hidden fees where they nickel and dime you to death. I did...

I hope you were not charged a fee for an inadvertent, honest mistake. Life happens.

Sometimes they archive classes

If it was a Zoom presentation, it might have been archived on the website.

Sounds like you have done your homework. I retired 2 years ago at 64. I had originally thought I would work till 66, my full social security age. Things were too stressful, so I went for my pension...

These are not for me...

None of these sound appealing to me. I generally know what types of books i would like, and these are not it.
