Re: Sad but not unheard of ?

I agree George, almost sounds like he is playing lotto and hoping to pick the lucky numbers. With close to 1 million in savings, one would think not to "hopes for better luck" but to be pro active and do your homework about choosing the right investment for yourself. That leads to the "adviser(or)" ...

Re: Life is a Daring Adventure | The Inspiration Thread

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing ~ Helen Keller ---------------------- ERE can help to buy freedom an...

Re: Useful Hard Skills for the near future

You don't need a crop failure to have empty shelves at the grocery store. I experienced just that when years ago, due to a highway washout, the transport truck didn't make it, they chartered a cargo plane to fly food in. For two days, many shelves sat empty. No milk, no meat. Two days is nothing, bu...

Re: Late Sexuality Extreme!

Yes this is very helpful. Thank you ! Made me laugh too. 1) You are right, no issues here. " So, the first potential problem area to address would be in the boundary or intersection of (1) and (2) where you may need to make more of an attempt to assume the superficial appearance, posture and behavio...
