    yeah and being an old elder now, the one bedroom apartments cost more than my 4 bedroom?
    its nuts around here, but being back home to Iowa I realize its not that much difference up there as in apartment monthly costs being $800-$1200 for a apartment. geeez?

    a builder mentioned its impossible to make profit on small homes today, the costs of crews and parts, etc... he said you cant build new for $40,000 and make any money. So larger homes for much more keeps the "inflation- equation? going....

    Im the trail end of the baby boomers, junk food and credit cards and internet, and now looking to Dave Ramsey for help...late in the 4th quarter of the game...post divorces and layoffs and life.... then Suzy Orman says "you need $5 million to retire!! buy my book!!!"

    geez.... ADD....my coworker had a massive heart attack, living in the city he survived, if hed been in the country or waited another 30min to1hr the doc said he'd been dead.

    weird times....Nursing Homes will be playing Led Zepplin and the White Album instead of Lawrence Welk...

    Come to NJ where they bone you on property taxes, sales taxes AND income taxes. (Not to mention bridges, tunnels and toll roads)

    The only good news is they have a program called Senior Freeze. If you are over 65, and have lived in your house for 5+ years, they will freeze your property tax at current levels. I’m 70, so I essentially haven’t had a property tax increase in 5 years. Of course I can’t move - even within NJ - as you lose the “5 years in the same house” qualifier.

    Btw, my daughter accepted the $30k over asking offer and signed contracts. Now she’s worried that the house won’t appraise sufficiently high enough for the buyers to get a mortgage. But that was going to be a problem in one way or another with all 3 offers. Fingers crossed.

    These people make money off saying you need lots of money to retire. What the hell kind of life style do you want in your old age that you have to have 5 million? I have never made 5 million to date and everything seemed fine. I think these money management people have a conflict of interest.

    Pisses me off cause they scare the crap out of me, I am not even close to a million.

    I mean really, they are saying you have to be a millionaire to sit around and throw rocks at kids on you lawn?

    Sold a Rane rack Preamp...$200...second time posted due to no offers, this time offer of $150 ..I took it.

    Then Reverb charges $9.95 in fees? Im at $140.
    Oh well...and Im yet to ship it...-$$$$ expecting $40 shipping? < shipping was $26 with $5 signature required>

    so basically sold a dual preamp, in mint condition, an excellent clean preamp, for $100?

    my hobby seems to be "buy stuff, then sell it at a loss".....

    $114... next up for auction is......

    And there is really no way around it. Unless, of course, you buy really expensive stuff that tends to gain value. But you basically have to be rich to do that. So, yeah, most of us in the middle are screwed. Just try to be happy and enjoy it while it happens.

    If you bought stuff and sold it for more it would be a "JOB".

    Actually, I think he would be Guitar Center.
