Re: Abuse leads to tragedy

Yep, all sadly predictable. My teeth are far from great, but I’ve made it to 61 & still have most of them:-) My mum limited soda to Christmas only! Even stricter than your suggestion & I’m sure it helped delay deterioration. I worked in a brewery, that also bottled soda. After seeing the crap that i...

I find Turkey is easy for “not losing”, but a difficult solo opportunity.

Re: Moderator Team Announcement

Banning anyone permanently from anything is never a good idea imo :I But cheats always want “another chance” & have learned to expect it. I once warned a salesman I’d get up & leave if he lied to me during the sales pitch & that I would ask questions to which I knew the true answer. He did & I quie...

Re: Boris Badenuff gets a pay rise

Yep, Boris will get it done & UK will prosper anyway under renewed leadership. The whole Brexit fiasco should have been avoidable, but in truth the damage was done way before the 2016 referendum. We’ve had 30+ years of poor leadership in UK (since Maggie dragged us out of the awful 70’s). It’s a sha...

Indeed so, like when you want to say something rude about the French people on the table next to you, but there's too high a probability that they speak English.

Re: Celebration of America

An excellent piece written by Stressedlines. I’m a legal immigrant to USA (from Europe) as is my wife (from Latin America). Green card in hand on arrival at LAX (as it should be) either in the 60’s in my wife’s case, or 90’s for me. Both citizens now. However aside from that, I read an excellent pie...

Re: Excused Missed Turns is inefficient ?

I don't know how to reconcile this for you. Your idea of what is fun and what isn't is yours and yours alone. My idea of fun is playing an unbroken game. 1) There will always be broken games. In one game I'm in (242303), two of the biggest countries just NMRd. One was replaced by an experienced pla...

“Brilliant” (as we Brits say). I’ll leave this thread on that note. It became a tad polluted, when it had been doing so well.

Re: Need advice

The important part that we forget about the women's equality movement was that it actually gave women a choice (e.g. Margaret Sanger was one of ten children, her mother died in her eighteenth pregnancy). Some women make the wrong decisions...but they are entitled to make as many bad decisions as we...

I never said it was “just because” anything. Just that living in an expensive place is an important criteria when considering load upon an expected income. I also never criticise the priorities of others (a totally pointless exercise). My comments on this thread are limited to helping good decision ...

Wow, this thread took a turn for the worse while I wasn’t looking. Usual adversarial BS. It’s kind of interesting because it touches on the whole new ball game that is “family life” in places mentioned such as SF & NY.

A quick comment on the superb quality advice I’m reading here. So often I read “advise” & think the author should not be allowed to potentially damage the lives of their listeners!

Re: Need advice

I’ll give you my father’s advise that worked well for me. He said there are 3 things in life that require a large income; 1. Responsibility for others (ie. the family you are referring to). 2. Living in an expensive place (for us London). 3. Being in debt (for most folks their mortgage). He said try...
