Ah, mis-Management. Talk about ways to save money.
If we managed everything properly, we would have to lay off all those employees that are cleaning up our messes.

Sounds like you should switch from accounting to sales. They are always finding free time to do things other than work.....conferences, trade shows, customer visits, golf....Oh, wait! I do those too. Never Mind.

Hi guys Checking back in after a long week of being away. Traveled to Ohio on Wed to visit my wife's sister and her husband. We found out that my BIL has some form of terminal cancer and figured we would go visit him before too long. We are waiting on tests that will be done between today and tomorrow to see where the cancer is in his body and whether or not it's treatable. Very somber Thanksgiving this year. Spent Friday in Canton with my side of the family... they are doing well. My mom is still cancer free (8 months now). Drove back on Saturday. Spent yesterday putting in a new A/C register in the upstairs laundry room. Have no idea why the previous owner spent all this time and money to move the washer/drier from the first floor to the second floor and never put in a register for the room. Also spent a few hours getting the Christmas decorations out of the attic. Glad to back at my desk job today

I did not read through the previous pages... so... welcome to any new members, happy birthday to those that had a birthday and hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving holiday!

I get to keep the laptop next to the desktop so can check in between tasks throughout the day. I use the laptop for research and email/internet since my macBook is about 100X faster than my desktop.

Really? Didn't even know he was sick. I didn't interact with him much. That's terrible news.

Watched Mary Poppins with the kids (again). Definitely my daughter's favorite. It even inspired her and DW to come up with a Mary Poppins themed birthday party. Guess who gets to dress up like Bert..

Nice work. The 10K I submitted was somewhere around 56 minutes. But like I said, I ran 6.2 miles on Thursday as well. I was hoping to be under an hour, but would up at about 61.5 minutes. But then again, I stopped to pee in the woods. Did you?

Morning dads. Sitting outside DW's oncologist while she gets a checkup On the plus side there are no cancer issues, but we have to go get an ultra-sound on her leg. She's either got a muscle tear or a blood clot. Really hoping it's nothing too severe. I leave for London in 6 hrs and don't want to leave her alone with the kiddos if it's something major.

Hadn't been on to check yet. That's really sad news. Prayers go out to his family.
I think between 2 and 4 Million would be enough to comfortably retire. At 5% interest that'd allow you to draw between 100-200K a year and not touch the principle.

Wow. That's really sad. Prayers for his daughter. I've been looking through old posts to help with gift exchange ideas and came across a bunch of his posts this weekend.

So was that sent from a phone or have you already tested the new jobs firewall to see what's blocked?
