This makes no sense and less cents. Spend $250,000 and save $150,000 over 20 years. I doubt the equipment will last 20 years.

ChrisI believe you are making a mistake by switching to FaceBook. FaceBook is an investor owned company that demonstrated greed in an IPO that was overpriced and overissued. The biggest asset this company has is the personal information of its Members. It will only be a matter of time before investors begin cashing in on their biggest asset.
MikeI will miss you and your blog in the Victoria Advocate. Even though I did not respond frequently, I looked forward to reading a blog from someone who thought differently than myself but was sincere and honest in his belief. It has helped me understand what the other side is about.I would not join FaceBook either and believe their is a future danger to those who risk putting their personal information in the hands of people who have to make money to satisfy investors. The biggest asset FaceBook has is the personal information of its Members.Best of wishes to you and your family.
MikeThanks for your response. I believe you will find that M F Global violated regulations when it used client funds to cover debt (thus the missing funds) and the denial by John Corzine about authorizing the violation.
MikeHistorically, regulation of industry by government has been the tool used to first cripple an industry and then nationalize it in the name of protecting the people.All this fuss about Jamie Dimon is silly to me. He announced his mistake to the public, the Board met and continue to support Dimon. J P Morgan still made money for the shareholders and it did not cost taxpayers or customers a dime.On the other hand, M F Global, led by our President's friend, Corzine, went bankrupt and took hundreds of millions of customer's dollars with it. Corzine pleads ignorance and is ignored by the Attorney General. Corzine is a major bundler of contributions for the Presidential Campaign.
Bankia of Spain is an example of a heavily regulated bank that has been nationalized and now needs 19 billion dollars that Spain does not have and can't borrow. Is this where we want to go?
MikeThe media seems to be giving Mitt Romney a thorough vetting and avoiding the same for our mystery man in the White House. I would like to know more about the President's past.
MikeBe careful with changing the rules on this one. Your party may not always be the majority party and then you would want to reverse these changes.
Mikefirst time i have not looked at your blog in a while and enjoyed your retirement story. not too different than mine, i retired at age 59 in March 1999. like you i had several friends at work that never had a chance to enjoy retirement.it was important for me to have a project to keep me busy and leave a legacy for others. i am fortunate to have both.i also have been frustrated with business calls that force you to leave a message and "wait" for them to return your call. most of the time you are the customer and it is quite rude to be treated this way. i learned if you can make your message important to them and leave your number, it takes you off the hook and puts the monkey on them to return your call.You have a talent for writing good stories, keep it up.

MikeI think ObamaCare in total was very bad legislation. I think a couple of the benefits were good but it did raise the price for the people that are paying insurance premiums. I am still upset about cutting Medicare by $500 billion to pay for half of the costs.My out-of-pocket costs for healthcare for a family of three has risen from $18,000 annually to more than $20,000 annually since the bill was passed. I am on the third doctor since the bill was passed. The first one just closed up and left town and the second one closed up and went to work at an army hospital.Senior Citizens are being squezzed hard to pay for half of ObamaCare.
