    Any Pool Owners?

    This guy gets it. Do NOT go to a pool store, you will leave with shite you don't need. Bleach, Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate and a good test kit (Trouble Free Pool has a fantastic kit). You may need acid if pH gets too high. Spring for a sand filter, you will thank me later. Once you get into a rhythm you will probably test the pool once a week. Once your water chem is solid, you "usually" just maintain your chlorine ppms (adding bleach). It's really actually quite simple and not overly expensive at all. A pool heater will of course increase your costs...

    Anybody had LASIK?

    Yup, it won't beat physiology I might get it done again if/when it makes sense. My eye doc said give it at least another 3-4 years.

    Anybody had LASIK?

    Had it done about 15 years ago now, best decision ever (was 20/15 after). The only restrictions were no driving until cleared by doc (next day for me). Wear the shields while sleeping for 2-3 days and all the damn eye drops. Was never told not to look at a screen nor did I ever have halos. I had halos before i got it done ...when the doc cleared me to drive the next day and I got on the highway I almost threw up. The new found depth perception was almost too much. Just had my eyes checked a couple months ago and it is just starting to fade, 20 in one eye, other is between 20-25.

    Any Landlords here?

    Like others have already said, it boils down to "time is money". We have used a prop mgmt company for ~5 years now on our second home, worth every penny to me. They are authorized to spend up to $500 on any repair without even bothering me. I login to their portal at the end of the year and snag any invoices and pertinent tax info and forward to my accountant, easy peasy. Luckily we have great tenants...they just signed another 2 year lease. Unfortunately last week I found out the well line is leaking and needs to be replaced (although they are handling it soup to nuts and just sent me the 3 quotes the other day for approval).

    The crazy dog lady in Central Park

    He is insufferably ignorant and/or a relentless troll, I have perused these boreds for a long time now and that's the first person I have ever felt the desire to ignore.

    Coronavirus - Doomsday

    Welcome to the echo chamber...you either assimilate or get beaten over the head with the semantics hammer. Having said that, more times than not this place can be rather entertaining...it's my go to reading while on the shitter or eating lunch.

    PPP Loan

    Yeah. I know they made a big to-do on how there was no "cost" to the borrower (of course we all pay for it in the long run). Who knows what the feds and lenders have worked out on the back end.
