  1. In Mrs. Bull's and my innocent and gullible youth, the early 1970s, we got a Veg-o-matic. I was quite enthused when it arrived. I put a big tomato in it and pushed the thing down, and the tomato exploded. The blast was horizontal: half of it it the backsplash, the other half hit my stomach. Haven't seen it since.
  2. This will be a new experience. The "stagflation" of the 1970s was a combination of commodity price increases eventually leading to wage increases, all aggravated by an Arthur Burns Fed which accommodated it with stable interest rates, and unbridled growth in the money supply. It wasn't until Jimmy Carter appointed Paul Volker as Fed Chairman that inflation began to be defeated.
  3. Just today, I received a shirt from Uncle Leon's store.
  4. I don't think people moving from cash to assets are buying dogs, or things you have to feed or clean up after.
  5. Several years ago, a power boat at our marina "sunk" in the slip. Apparently, there were some seals (rubber-type, not mammals) around the stern-drive that lake otters found tasty.
  6. TONIC is still out of the water. The ePropulsion pod drive installation is basically done. There are some other work items to complete. I'm anxious to see how the pod does, especially the Watt:Knot stuff. I really like the electric power.
  7. I recall reading a very funny book a few years ago by a Brit who has lived in Italy for quite some time, "Italian Ways: On and off the Rails from Milan to Palermo" by Tim Parks. He writes about how single Italian men, wherever in Italy they live and work, must take the train home to Mama whenever their laundry needs to be done.
  8. Interesting thread. I've been thinking about a cheap dinghy to tow once in a while, and also something like a Puffer for a small lake if we were to go to the mountains to cool off. It looks like the Puffer is set up for rowing too.
  9. Mrs. Bull is still pleased. Loves the bagless concept. I am pleased. Money well spent.

  12. Within a few days of getting my 2020 refund, I received a letter from the IRS with questions about my 2019 Income Tax return. The IRS asked that I furnish back up information information for (a) tax withheld, in this case, 1099’s from three payers of retirement income, and (b) estimated tax payments, which are the cancelled checks for my four estimated tax payments. I have this information on hand and will send it to the IRS, however, this is all information that they have. Copies of 1099’s are sent to the IRS by the payers, and the U.S. Treasury received and deposited my estimated
