  1. When I was little my mother would make home made sauce on Sunday's occasionally, but for an easy dinner during the week sometimes she would mix elbow macaroni with a jar of Ragu, hamburger and mozzarella cheese, then bake it. She called it Johnny mozzarella. It was good.
  2. I stay away from refurbished ink cartridges. All of our sales guys have an inkjet printer so I started getting the refurbished to save money. But the failure rate was too high. We were wasting money on unused ink, plus at times leaving the salesman unable to print. In the past I had one ruin the printer because it leaked ink everywhere. I will buy aftermarket toner, but never ink.
  3. They forced a guy who's 74(?) to retire. They forced him out about a year ago and replaced him with two other guys. Those two both quit so they called him back. Now they've hired another guy and forced him out again. He is still very capable and good at his job. He doesn't want to retire. Today is his last day. He leaves at noon. I was told years ago that given a choice, don't ever work for a family owned business. I'm seeing again that there is a lot of wisdom in that statement.
  4. Wishing for the best for you both, lj.
  5. We got about 8" or so and drifting. I made a mess out of my driveway because my tractor wouldn't push it. Especially at the end of the drive where the road plows throws all the heavy snow and road debris. My dog had a good time trying to figure out how to poop in it.
  6. I'm worried about the Rams too. They have been beaten by tough NFC teams this year. Not that I consider Dallas that tough.
  7. The kid I work with is 25 and in his first job out of college. He's already thinking about, and planning for retirement. He's more realistic than the guy you're talking about. He's saving a good portion of his check to 401k, plus saving into the health care account which he want's to have around when he retires. I don't think he has numbers worked out as far as what he wants to get every year after he retires, or at what age he wants to retire, but he's definitely thinking about it and planning. I'm like you, I wasn't thinking about that back then. I remember the managers telling us to save at least 10% of our pay for retirement. Not only could I not afford to do that, but I figured I had a lot of time before I had to worry about it. Now I wish I had listened a little more.
  8. My kids thought it'd be a good idea to get me a dog for Christmas. Meet Zoey...

    I just went through that last week. I tried to avoid it by doing th ecologuard test, but when it came back positive, doc "strongly suggested" I do the colonoscopy. I didn't enjoy it at all. They removed two polyps, but I don't have the results yet.
