Hot Tea

June 30, 2011 // Posted in Living, TV (Tags: , , , , ) |  Comments Off on Hot Tea

A nice way to wind down at night while watching the news and getting settled is to have a cup of hot tea. A few months ago I bought a tea kettle and I keep it on the stove with at least two cups of water in it, ready to heat. It gets hot pretty quick and then I drop a teabag of green tea into my mug. After just a couple of minutes, I am settling onto the couch, coddling a mug of warm tea and ready for the local news broadcast.

Stooges Redo

3 Stooges

Read about a movie being made that revives the Three Stooges. Of course, the Stooges are not going to be the same actors as the TV series in the 1950’s and ’60’s. I have not heard which actors are being considered, but it will be really interesting to see what they do with this classic show.

Lease vs Buy

June 19, 2011 // Posted in Money, Vehicles (Tags: , , , ) |  Comments Off on Lease vs Buy

One of my casual Facebook friends posted that he has to get a new car and he is thinking about getting a lease instead of buying the car. I don’t know why he is worried about that. He is a musician who makes good money – you would think he can buy anything he wants.

All of his friends talked about how the leases have a mileage restriction – something like 30,000 miles total for the 3 year lease term. I drive about 20,000 miles each year, so that kind of a mileage restriction would not work out for me at all.
