  1. I checked pricing for glasses at Costco a while back, and it did seem that were substantially cheaper than Walmart. P.S. - Insurance that covers inferior products is, as you say, "no insurance." Gotta love their multifaceted schemes.
  2. I have a Costco membership, but I buy barely any groceries from there. The big blocks of cheese and large cans of peanuts are about it. I bought my laptop, 3 TV's and my car tires from Costco. I also purchased the extended warranties on the electronics. I have seen Costco's handling of warranty claims first-hand and am impressed by it. Their tire prices for good Michelins are unbeatable - at least in my locale. Plus I use their cash back Visa card for almost everything I buy, and the cash back adds up to almost $500 a year. I have contemplated whether Costco is still worth the $60, but I guess it is. The cash back certainly makes up for it, although I know there are many other cash back cards available.
  3. That's just the beginning. There will come a time in the not too distant future when even finding owners will be kind of difficult.
  4. My "cheap-@ss" checked into Prime at your urging, and there was nothing else I wanted. I don't care to pay for streaming video or music.

    The one difference is that Mahomes can run. It can be great until a disaster hit and injury. I hope he stays healthy.
  6. If you like to keep up with research and technology in the medical field, this article is pretty interesting: https://www.technologynetworks.com/tn/news/newly-discovered-t-cell-could-represent-dawn-of-universal-cancer-therapy-329565

    Maybe the guy who wants a pay raise from 6-7 million to 27.5 million. Seriously, I haven't followed enough to know all the "who's who" to try to call the Superbowl. I'm not rooting for anyone particular and am glad to see some new competitors for a change. I will say that I am thinking that Kelce is to Mahomes as Gronk was to Brady. The chemistry looks very similar.

    After seeing how the Texans had and lost a 24-0 lead against the Chiefs in record time, how the Ravens got wholloped and how SF rolled over GB, all I can say is anything goes. There's no point in arguing which time has the most talent. Either team can come out and give an awesome performance or a rotten one at any time.

    Not to mention the absence of Gronk. I like Brady, but I can't help but think how a receiver like Gronk can make a good quarterback great.
  10. Ha ha! I need a $7.05 emblem for my car through Amazon. Just sitting here, thinking about what I might need for another $18.00 to get me to free shipping.
  11. This sentiment is nothing modern. We used to have slave labor, right here in the good, old USA! So much for decent jobs disappearing. If you want those poor kids working in foreign factories to do well, don't feel guilty buying their cheap stuff. They wish you'd buy more; I can assure you that. IMO, the decent jobs of today blow away the decent jobs of bygone years, as does the standard of living. Back in the 1970's, I'd have never imagined in my wildest dreams we'd be chunking a 55" flat screen TV in the garbage because a power supply went bad in it. Ha ha! Those were the good, old days!

    Why, oh why? There's no need for trick plays like that.

    If we had D. Henry.
  15. Wow! I was just listening to the Signals album a while ago and had no idea at the time. Hemispheres is my favorite of their albums. We're losing so many great ones these days. Ugh!

    Let's just say it was a ticky tack foul that likely was a game winner. Without that foul, the defending player might have prevented the reception. It was very obvious, but oh well. Lots of fouls don't get called.

    Yeah, I was confused at the end because it looked like even though they didn't call it, their review of the scoring play would certainly result in a reversal. The push was not flagrant, but it was clear, and it did make a difference.
