    Debt...

    Thanks. Everything I mentioned here has been discussed elsewhere. I think I outlined my first marriage in some thread, earlier this year. I may have also mentioned my family dynamics, where my brother, the troubled middle child, was protected by my mother. My dad had a small business in...

    Debt...

    Regarding the original topic of this thread, I've previously mentioned some of the life circumstances that have steered me towards my debt reality. Let me summarize: - Growing up, my dad instilled upon me (beat me over the head), on a daily basis, that I needed to do well in school, so I can buy...

    Debt...

    Not a fair question for me, I have a wife who goes out and does all the buying. I will go weeks without spending a penny, since I work from home.

    Cord Cutters

    The catch with all these deals, is when they run out, you're hooked on the shows, so you pay full price to keep the service. How do you avoid that?

    Cord Cutters

    We got Apple TV+ for The Morning Show with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. We finished the 2 seasons within a month, but we couldn't cancel before paying for another month. There's no 3rd season yet.

    I love SIRIUS XM!

    Bmw had bluetooth in 2002, and in 2005 it was compatible with any cell phone. But it was always part of the Premium package, which included a bunch of other stuff and cost over 3 grand, so I never got it.

    I love SIRIUS XM!

    The wife's 2020 Outback (as well as the 2014 Tacoma before that) has the full color screen which displays all the info and album art. But my 2008 car is fairly primitive. I've never owned a car (for myself) with bluetooth, or a touch-screen, or any type of multi-line display, or an automatic...

    I love SIRIUS XM!

    Update. Being that my "new" car is a 2008 model, it's lacking in tech savvy. When I play SXM through my free-trial, I get a 1-line plain text name of song, and a 1-line plain text name of artist, against a gray background. In a corner of the screen is a little selection box that has the channel...

    Scotch Sampler

    In 1988, Tracy Chapman hit the music scene in a big way. Her self-titled debut album was full of hits that played on the radio for months and months; and the world discovered her amazing vocal talents. As a graduate of Tufts University in Boston, there was a lot of local pride in her success...
