    The field is way too crowded now. Too much confusion and choice for the consumer. One of these days I'll figure out what I really like to watch and cut back on a few.
  2. Deals and steals

    There has been some discussion about how long Paramount+ will continue. Financially it is a drain. Everyone and their mother jumped into the streaming business and now it's time for thinning of the herd.

  4. How much do you need for retirement

    A friend has listed the IRA's of his children as beneficiaries of the money he has in his IRA. He claims this is a perfectly legitimate way to avoid distributions until his offspring reach withdrawal age.

    In another thread @MonteCarloSS mentioned his Home Depot was out of pellets for pellet stoves. You snooze, you lose.

    A good friend of mine has more degrees than I can count, all from MIT. Including a Phd from MIT Sloan. Brilliant guy. His advice to anyone that will listen about being successful at a job. 1. Show up. 2. Shut up. 3. Do 10% more than everyone else. He said one can be wildly successful...

    I know cases where that has happened. I know cases where the kids just started their new lives. My son entered the Army after college and got some world class training and skills. He got a masters last year from Johns Hopkins and is now working on his MBA, both while working full time. My...
