On Getting the Paper

I live in a small Oregon town and wouldn't pay the fee for the meager articles that are 1+ days old. But hubby likes to read it while eating bfast. Totally NOT worth the price.

@andnowlights We went to the county courthouse. Unsure exactly, but I'd say $200.

On The Cost of Things At My Annual Physical

@Wendy T I'm 54 and I've only had a gyno and dermo. Even though I'm in excellent health, earlier this year I got an Internist, which you will want to establish a relationship with when you're much older. When your body starts "breaking down", you will want one doc to go to who knows your health history.

On Jimmy John's Non-Compete Agreement Bans Employees From Working at Restaurants that Serve Sandwiches

A JJ just opened in my town. They don't have mustard or pickles (you can buy a whole pickle, though). So, my tuna sandwich had a lot of white bread, shredded iceberg lettuce, a couple super thin tomato slices, and thats it. NO comparison to Subway.

On Who Is the Wealthiest Woman in Each State?

@Lily Rowan Can't remember exactly, but on the Forbes richest list, they either do mention inherited wealth, or something like Mars Candy, and you can deduce that its family money.

On How a 'Sugar Baby' Does Money

@SB2 thanks for answering. Follow up...Do you usually bring the subject up first? And is there negotiation, or you just say xx, and they say ok.

@missedconnections Ask lots of questions re the HOA. this is usually a price killer. I just sold a condo. HOAs at first was under $200/mo, and was over $500 after a few years. Also, what will the maintenance guy fix? Sure is nice to call front desk to get something fixed.
