Oh, such fun it is biggrin.gif



As I somehow happened to become a bit serious just now, I realized how fortunate I am, circumstances being what they are. Two and a half year of unemployment and with no job in sight, I still sleep well at night. Oh, a bit of a rhyme there. Classy biggrin.gif

Having no debts is key to this. I´ve never borrowed money and although I have been using the money I have a bit too much lately on unnecessary things (like hiring a guy to fix up my car cosmetically and getting a new gun just to plink with) I´m still with my head above the water line. I´m not trying to brag here like I have tons of cash just laying around, but the concept of no loans and staying at home playing Oblivion instead of going to the pub cannot be exaggerated! laugh.gif

I'm with you on this one! I too live on very little and have done so for a goodly number of years. Admittedly, I've long had a meager military pension to rely on, recently augmented by yet more meager Social Security payments. Even pre Social Security I was able to live within my means provided I watched every penny. It helps that I own my home outright with no mortgage payments to worry about. No car payments either, not at the moment, hopefully never. No debts. Heck, I don't even have, and don't want, a credit card. No costly 'bad' habits such as smoking, drugs or booze. When it comes to it, my normal mandatory monthly expenses boil down to utilities, insurance payments, food (budgeted at $200), enough fuel to get me to and from town (20 miles round trip) once or twice a week, taxes due, and occasional things like car tag and drivers license renewal.

The potential bear in the closet is my decrepit health. I've been lucky thus far in that health insurance has covered the vast bulk of the cost for treating my various ailments. Sooner or later I'm apt to be diagnosed with something no adequately covered, and have to shell out big bucks in medical expenses. In fact I was diagnosed with one such condition late last year. Treatment ain't gonna be cheap, not by my standards, but it's not super expensive either. Maybe 5k US tops, which hurts but won't break me.

Provided I live within my means and squirrel away whatever I can whenever I can, I can afford occasional luxury spending, like assembling a new computer every four or so years, occasional CD/DVD/book/game purchases, and so on.

First David and now Alan. Not a good start to 2016.

I'm with mALX - huge fan of DB since high school - umm, about 35 years now. Not always digging his music of the moment, but always in awe of his creative genius.

I was so excited to get his new album The Next Day. Now I'm looking at BlackStar knowing it's his last album ever.

And Alan, oh, how I remember him chewing the scenery in Robin Hood (vs. Kevin Costner, who was woodener than Pinocchio in that) and taking on Bruce Willis in that chilling role in the modern Christmas classic Die Hard. Always liked him in anything he played.

Oh, dear.

I'm watching Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves right now. And Alan Rickman makes this film brilliant. biggrin.gif

I think I'll watch Die Hard tomorrow.

Here's something that makes me laugh, as much as it annoys me. We're barely past christmas, and they've already started putting on adverts for Creme Eggs! ohmy.gif



Did they forget about Valentine's Day? laugh.gif

I've always hated them.

My sister loves them, even after one time as a kid when she tried to bite into one on a cold day, and literally bounced off the thing. laugh.gif

Careful. Apparently they're not as good as they used to be. They stopped using Dairy Milk chocolate for them, and supposedly profits on them are down as a result.

Definitely not what they used to be I think, but maybe the Suck Fairy has got to them. I'd snap up a dark choccy variant if that existed, though, but I suppose it wouldn't be right, would violate some principle of Anglican Easter liturgy or something...

Anyway, just for Mirocu, I've now decided to make some up for my seasonal produce mod (which only has fruits right now, badly needs more). Available from all reputable vendors in Cyrodiil from New Year till the equinox. (There must be a Cyrodiilic festival that fits, off to UESP to check...)

[EDIT: Oh, dear heavens, I just read that Guardian piece. Is nothing sacred? Sounds as ghastly as a Hershey Bar (someone tried to market those, and other US 'confectionery', here on the high street recently. Went out of business in 3 months. I can see that soon it's going to have to be Belgian/Swiss chocs, or nothing.]

Now that's a rather fine USan product. Perhaps we should all concentrate on what we're good at. (And, admittedly, the UK is traditionally kind of middle-ranking on confectionery, I think. But at least we're not bottom of the list, just heading there it seems...)

Maybe not the best at sweet making; but the UK churns out the most Awesome actors and has always been in the forefront of the music industry/trends with the exception of blues.

(Not to even mention the RAF and Navy is the greatest and most famous in the world or how tremendously brave and downright fearless UK troops were in Iraq). I was completely floored by how they went door to door and crashed through places on foot as if they were tanks. It was absolutely thrilling to watch them going through the most dangerous areas and just taking charge. I can imagine it must be tremendously comforting as a citizen to know that powerful defense protects your country. They command respect wherever they go.

Agreed. And on the other - shouldn't let the politics behind why they were there effect your pride in the troops themselves. They just went where they were sent; they may not have even wanted to be there; but they went and kicked butt with unbelievable class and style. I was praising the troops, not the conflict or politics that put them there. They earned the praise and deserve it.

Oops. You posted before I thought again and edited the political bit out. Of course I'm not blaming the services themselves, it's a tough old job and they have to do a lot with rather scarce resources, frankly. As you say, kudos to them...

Yes, I agree 100%; and you are right about the scarce resources too. I really wish our armies were never used for anything but homeland security, really don't like the idea of any war. But if one happens - nice to know your own army can throw down like no other.
