I like to drive under the speed limit in the middle lane with my left turn signal blinking forever. Cheap amusement.
I did my part. Just sold a place. No realtors involved and seller financed so I guess it doesn't show up anywhere.
It was refreshing to wake up, open the Times and find out that finally....finally....someone in government was going to be sensitive to the needs of the bankers.
The Mellowing of Maxine Waters
After an hour of swiveling nervously in their chairs, the bankers broke into grins. One executive slapped Ms. Waters a high-five. Another embraced her.
How do you even answer that type of question honestly?
My answer has always been "a very low threshold of tolerance for that question."

couple of things, Old Fart. 1. Hawaii DID NOT pass mandatory health coverage.
Tomato/tomahto, let's see what the Wiki said:
Hawaii Prepaid Health Care (PHC) Act (PHCA) is a state law (Hawaii Revised Statutes Chapter 393) enacted June 12, 1974 in the State of Hawaii to improve health care coverage by employer mandate. Under the law, businesses are required to offer health insurance to employees who work more than 20 hours per week for four or more consecutive weeks in the State of Hawaii. .
Thanks for the beer contributions!
Hawaii pioneered mandatory health coverage by passing a prepaid health care law in 1974 that requires businesses to arrange health insurance in jobs of 20+ hours per week. That's a big reason such a big portion of our jobs are 19 hours/week, especially the service industry. It's pretty well assumed here that if you work in tourism, for example, you will have 2 or 3 jobs
Slovenia must feel like it's behind the curve.

Our Bald Panther group would disagree. We sure can see a big difference between those who have a history of regular exercise and those who don't. Dramatic albeit a small sample group.
I never can figure this economics stuff. Like, if we only added a net 1.6 million jobs since 2001, how did all the illegals that got here in past 12 years find work?
ln(ARREST Ssta) = βABORTsb + γsa + λat + θst + ǫsta
Ha ha ha. So obvious. How could they screw that up? Probably got their Babort all confused with their qsta. Rookies.
I'd send my wife's dog to Switzerland if I could be sure it was a one way ticket.
Just stopped by to see what's up. Guess I'll go have a night cap. Tough being on the wrong side of the HCN time zone.
Czech Republic is not Chechen Republic.
Good thing the bad guys were not from Georgia.
It would have been better if Reuter's retraction said "Soros Returns From the Dead".
Not much information about why / how.

Apologies....Reuters made a mistake, he's not dead.
Is North Korea still around? Haven't heard much on the news.
The Bald Panthers were mightily surprised by all the man-in-the-street interviews that elicited the comment, "Who could ever want to do something like this to us?" We thought such innocence had departed long ago.
Sex is off course in front of the fire..... Try it as long as you still can
Must. Not. Respond.
Three sheep night?
As Yoringe would say, "Great for romantic sex on fur."
My GF parents have a small fire place in the kitchen and they cook on it! Also great for romantic sex on fur
Doesn't the fur catch fire? Why would you whippersnappers want to have sex in a fireplace anyway?
Folks are often surprised at how many homes have fireplaces here in Hawaii. Many of the best properties have them.
I keep hearing about multigenerational housing, but I have yet to encounter 2 generations that want to live with each other.
In Hawaii over 11% of households are multi-generational. Highest in the country.
His 'n hers in the master suite?
True story. Went to see an unusually low priced condo in the (I think) Royal Iolani building and it had side by side toilets in the ensuite. At first everyone thought one was a bidet but on closer inspection, nope, they were both toilets. I asked, but never found out the real story.
FTA: The problem is that modern economics has a poor understanding of past movements in home prices.
You mean I've been reading all these comments for years and....and....it's all just guesswork?
Skittles, please don't over imbibe on the Malbec. I still have first dibs on your scooter.
Oh by the way, I ran RiF's bitcoin strategy by the Bald Panthers at the free senior coffee klatsch. They laughed like aged hyenas and said "Ripple, bitchez, Ripple". Whatever that might be.
WINES OF THE TIMES; Argentina Opens The Tap for Malbec - NY Times
Thanks, robj, I'm a fan of the Malbecs. I had recently an Alta 2004 that was really nice but a tad expensive. I hope that Adorno (whose travels cover a lot of places I used to hang, back when) has some personal recommendations too!
Edit: Thanks, Adorno, I'll put it on my list.
Should I have a glass of Malbec?
Any recommendations on Malbecs, maybe some new finds from your fishing jaunt? I'm still working through the Catena line.
When mtgox opens in 40 minutes I'm going to sell everything I have left at whatever price I can get. I expect this - what I'm calling a 'panic sell' - strategy won't be followed by most.
If you'd care for an independent third party validation I can ask the Bald Panthers tomorrow while enjoying the free senior coffee refill at McDonalds.
Okay but I've got this money order for $20,000 hanging around and I only want to pay $10,000
How about I send the money order to you and you just send me back $10,000 to square things up?
AARP told me to look out for guys like you. I bet you sell reverse mortgages and walk-in bath tubs too.
It appears that the Geezer Inverse Awareness Index is spot on accurate with respect to bitcoin pricing.
Poic, I'm willing to entertain licensing offers if you'd like.

I get to sit OUTSIDE in the sun today.
Glad to hear that mate. Not the least because sitting INSIDE in the sun would be a real trick. Aloha.
You need to name your hover round after FF and post pictures of the 64oz coke in your cup holder.
It's enough to know I pay my nanny $15k a year and she gets the French Maid outfit for free.
Something is inherently wrong with money, period.
If any of you want to send your money to me that would be fine. Oh wait, you already do. Hehehe...
We were just talking about what a great golfer you are.
I sense just the slightest filigree of penguin mockery in this post.

One of the Bald Panthers at the 19th hole was yapping about bitcoins today. I hate to tell you but when that happens the whole bitcoin thing has pretty well crested, the shark has been jumped and the tide is heading out. The Inverse Geezer Awareness Index is never, ever wrong. When we start to get on a bandwagon, the wheels are ready to fall off.
4 hours, I'd think about calling someone else in that time.
A taxi would be a good start.
Home inventory pretty scarce in these parts.
Honolulu’s condo market keeps getting hotter
Honolulu’s red-hot condominium market grew even hotter in March with a staggering 73 percent growth in sales and an 11 percent jump in the median sales price, according to statistics released Monday by the Honolulu Board of Realtors. There were also positive numbers in the single-family home market in March, with a 4 percent increase in the number of sales and a 2.4 percent increase in the median sales price, compared to the same month last year.
Note: the data is a little weird for early 2011..
I love it when the explanations get all technical and wonkish.
With a chaser of Fireball, anything is possible.
Guess who takes more of a hit?
Dang. Looks like its back to domestic beer.
Unsustainable! (the clams, that is.)
I actually thought of you today when I grabbed the grigio. I also picked up a bottle of Santa Margherita Chianti Classico Riserva and, as promised, will launch my exploration of Italian reds.
Well, on behalf of the senior set, thanks to all of you for your ongoing social security contributions which tonight provided a very pleasant Santa Margaherita Pinot Grigio to accompany my pasta with asari clams. Seriously, thanks.
Why would I let golf interrupt a good drinking opportunity?
