  1. Richard (Coytee) and I were just discussing this sort of thing. There is a false impression that the only choice is risky stocks and CD's which pay nothing. In the middle exist good dividend stocks. They yield better than CD's yielded in their heyday. Yields today on some very good companies are 7-8%.
  2. Me, too. But sadly, I have a feeling that the hedge fund guys are investing other people's money, and a lot of unwitting people got burned.
  3. The $80 Turbotax for Home and Small Business creates and files them for you. I just did mine last week.
  4. I don't know if this will help any of you going through severe anxiety attacks, but one of my brothers described attacks he had similar to wuzzer's around 5-7 years ago. He said it scared him like he was going to die. He didn't really know what brought it on and had no history to help explain it. His doctor prescribed a small dose of Xanax. He said it worked very well, and in fact he weaned himself down to just taking a half a pill to keep the attacks at bay. I don't recall if he said anything happened far enough in advance of the attacks to make him know to take the Xanax as needed or if he took it around the clock. After a while of taking small dosage Xanax, he finally stopped taking any of it and has been fine ever since. As far as anxiety goes, I have to wonder whether the anxiety comes from the heart palpitations or whether anxiety triggers the palpitations. If the attacks are really sudden and severe, don't assume it's necessarily a mental or mood issue. Also, different drugs work differently on different people. Don't be afraid to ask your doctor to experiment with different ones until you find a right fit. Good luck!
  5. Did any of the mods get any belated Christmas gifts?
  6. Delta to Wussies: Leave Your Pets at Home
  7. 11 million population on lockdown with orders not to leave city. https://www.foxnews.com/world/chinese-city-lockdown-coronavirus-surge
  8. Just in case you were too stoned and missed it. https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/cannabis-stocks-may-be-2021s-big-winners-2021-01-07
  9. I don't agree. I think China had a reason for serious concern. Without further evidence, I would believe it was without intent.
  10. Even then, science doesn't have an explanation. Why are there states which have been under tighter restrictions doing worse than ones with less restrictions?
  11. Chives have an awful funk, but they taste great! Scrambled eggs and chives make great breakfast tacos.
  12. I've had the same experience. Except for not being able to argue politics in a private section, I don't see that much has really changed. I think we changed. There are a lot of people who've moved on. It takes some of us longer than others.
  13. Cast it to a smart TV through WiFi.
  14. It's California's fault? Maybe they should deny all of them medical care and just let them run the streets infecting others until they die.
  15. Everything I've read says the vaccine producers believe the mutation is insignificant.
  16. Right again. I've read we should expect a surge through January and the first couple of weeks in February. After that, hopefully it begins to ratchet down, especially due to administration of the vaccines to the most vulnerable. If we can keep them out of hospitals, things should begin to open up.
  17. Right. It seems to have started early, when the President downplayed it and said it will all blow over in a few weeks. IIRC. He was called to task on that attitude, and everything offered to challenge him was shot down as fake reporting and part of a bigger plan to destroy him, politically. The science hasn't been very precise in a number of respects, and this just fueled the disbelief. To this day, there remain many who cling to their beliefs it was politicized and overplayed. Full hospitals mean little to them. The odds of dying from it are very low. I will just be glad when things start returning to normal. I'm optimistic that by early summer, things will be much better.
  18. Why continue to worry about testing if the vaccines are going to work?
