Granted, it's 8th place right now, but what an incredible turnaround from last season.

3 more regular season games to maybe move up the ladder, but at least we got our invitation to the dance!

I'll say that one thing that I find bothersome about the initial plan is how much emphasis is being put on - either get insurance or you will pay a penalty - wasn't the idea to insure those who couldn't afford it?

Maybe solve that problem before they start threatening people. Sure once there is an affordable option, if you choose not to join then a penalty is fair, but until then, suspect.

Yep, be nice to see a minimum tax for large companies. Should always support the country that provides so much for all your employees.

Hate to grab one point of many fine ones here, but, why does that prevent you from getting the job?

It's not a cheap labor issue - it's that people don't want to work in wineries tying and trimming grape vines. I would LOVE to do that, but those jobs aren't available to me because the migrants moved in.

Kinda soured on the 100 views of a tradelist but not a single offer on anything. 10 years ago I figured on 1 PM for each 10 views.

Maybe this puts the bay back in the range of what I've always thought it was meant for - people selling their stuff at auction.

Always disliked the store concept there - there are plenty of places to sell fixed price wares on the net.

If it does that I think it's a good thing, guess we'll see.

Oh, I don't disagree on that as the best coding option, just providing another option I have seen used in other forum situations.

Actually, the best way would be to completely use percentage sized elements so that the entire page is fluid. Then there would be no "option". It would just work for everyone no matter what size of screen they are on.

I think the pervasive attitude that time off is wasted time is far more to blame for this impatience stuff..

Larger reptiles would be at a distinct disadvantage because they cannot regulate their body temperature, and the loss of sunlight to warm the environment for even a short time, means death.

Yeah, but most kids still don't know how a fuse box operates...

And there was a certain joy to be found in the days of no caller ID...

Not quite true, personal items sold are exempt from income tax reporting.

It's when people are buying items for resale and not paying the taxes that they want to catch. If someone is selling bunches of items that they bought to resell, then yeah they should be paying taxes.

Ultimately it's going to come down to this - does the IRS want everyone to incorporate? That way we can all write off expenses for things like food, clothes, entertainment, allowances paid to children, etc...and keep a balance sheet just for living, just like corporate entities do. Then you only get taxed on your profit. wink.gif

You certainly wouldn't if you took a loss on the clothes.
But if you made a gain on those clothes you should be paying income tax on them.
This kind of situation will be a nightmare.

Thought I'd pass this by for further consideration.

Maybe a selectable "widescreen" or "standard" option could be implemented?

I just use an old annual for trade valuing. since most of what I want is pre-lockout anyway.

Figure that values between issues of that type don't fluctuate much anyway from year to year.

Team bag > tape

I don't mind a used top loader, but why the tape? Just get some team bags - one pack of 100 will last for a long time, since you can reuse the ones you get cards in as well.

Prefer an insert from the 90's, early 2000's.

Check my tradelist link if you have something, and PM me, thanks.

Could use the Duchene, but nothing except base in leafs, so you probably want to look for better results.

Thanks tho.
