Re: Semi-ERE Year 3 - Wanderlust vs. W-O-R-K

Wow! Great job! Looking at your annual budget is making me laugh at myself. It's incredible how little you paid for housing and what a big difference that makes.

Just The Numbers

Just finished tabulating our expenditures for the year. This has been a crazy year financially. It's not looking very ERE. INCOME Gross Consulting Income: $75,585 <- this is usually ~$90K working part-time but was unemployed for three months. Net Consulting Income: $56,688 Gift: $24,000 <- this was ...

Re: COVID topic vol 2

The new strain may be transmitted up to 70% more readily than the previous ones. It's believed that it arose in mid September, and it now makes up 60% of all cases in London. I read this in the news earlier. What does this mean exactly? Does it mean that the new strain is spread through methods oth...

Re: I Saved Some Money, Accumulated So Good

Your bao look amazing! Until you posted the recipe, I thought they were Chinese version (char siu bao) and wondered where you found the BBQ pork. This recipe looks like it's more savory than sweet, and the ingredients seem easier to acquire. Thank you for sharing.

Re: Llorona's Log, Take II

FINANCES & INCOME At the end of November, I finished an part-time interim gig and a government proposal. Earned enough to cover expenses for a couple months, which is good because there's very little solid work on the horizon. For the first time in 12+ years, I'm having to hustle. Have a couple...

Wishing you best of luck with orange sky outlook.
Thank you! So glad that's over. Here is a photo that a friend in San Francisco took around noon on that day.

Burnt Orange Sky

Today I woke up wondering if our house had teleported to Mars. The sky was freakishly orange and it was so dark that we had to keep the lights on the entire day. A thin layer of ash coated everything outside. Very disconcerting.

Re: Have rising food prices affected your spending?

Our food spending has shot up. In March and April, it was hard to find to basics, so we scooped up whatever we could find regardless of cost. We also starting eating more for comfort and convenience, including stuff like chocolate and wine. These days, supply seems to have stabilized. We've cut out ...

@jp "I’m having a hard time condemning the rioters." Not me. Anybody that steals and loots, damages property, burns cars or buildings, or assaults or kills somebody else because they are upset has no sympathy from me. Lock them up and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. If one wan...

Re: COVID-19: Unwinding the Lockdown and Long Term Epidemic

I am convinced that white people need to start talking about race to non-white people. And not superficially. Historically, it hasn’t happened because white folks collectively are “uncomfortable “ with it. Now is the time. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1483383741/ref=dp_ob_neva_mobile What do you ...

Re: Llorona's Log, Take II

It's been a while! FINANCES & INCOME I don't know my net worth at the moment. I'm scared to look. Work-wise, spring was already shaping up to be slow, but once the COVID-19 lockdown began in mid-March, projects decreased to a trickle. I have minimal work, meaning I'll be lucky to generate 40% of...

I'm considering small gatherings of friends (like 1-on-1) who also have no symptoms after I'm done quarantining. Is this horribly irresponsible? Everyone I know is complying with the shelter in pl...
