Re: Factoring in the cost of inflation

Very interesting about the internet! I've noticed the prices of computers being cheaper of course as technology improves.. but I hadn't thought about internet. I'm thinking these computers must be *much* cheaper than they once were if I'm thinking they are cheap without factoring in inflation. My d...

Oh, the SNOW!

I hope everyone who is getting buried under storm GIA is safe and warm at home! We have about 8" I'm guessing, so far. The snow stopped for a couple hours this afternoon, but now it's picking up..............bigger flakes and a bit of wind. They say we might have as much as 12", and we're under a wa...
