  2. Holiday Event Safety & Security in SoNH

    I've gone to it once or twice. It's kind of a pain in the ass to get a beer. As usual, I will probably be avoiding it. The real fun when I was a kid in the 70/80s was walking from my uncles house with the family from Cross Street to down town for the old block parties in the summer
  3. How much do you need for retirement

  13. Veterans Day 2022

    Talked to my dad for like an hour and a half today. He's a Vietnam era vet that stayed conus in the AF. He pretty much feels the same way I do. I asked him once if he saw action. He said "in Arizona? Yep, Sheila, Mary and June" I think my dad was a Jodi
  14. Veterans Day 2022
