    Prayers sent. You'll feel a million times better after the procedure, and it will go better than expected.

    Canoe float trip

    Rusty has a trip he does in the late summer but upstream between PA and NY, ends at Port Jervis. Some choppy water, but nothing you can't navigate around.

    Andover Hunt and Fish

    I just miss you guys when I ride my motorcycle up 517. I'll have to make that left onto Main Street and stop in this summer.

    SD Card Reader Just Died !!!

    I have all iOS devices, so I can only recommend the Apple-branded gear. However, if I was forced to use other Chinese-made products, I'd get one of these: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=11595 It's cheap. $8. Get two and throw one in your hunting bag and the other in the glove compartment. The Insignia stuff is cheap and not well-made. I bought a bunch of their branded stuff with mostly good results. However, it won't last. Honestly for this kind of thing, it's going to be hit or miss. But spending more than $10 on a replacement would be too expensive based on what I've seen in the market.

    Which would you rather have.......??

    I love working. Loved working as a kid and earning money. If there was a way to make more money when I was a kid, I'd be all over it like flies on shit. "I'll sleep when I'm dead." --Warren Zevon

    Sometimes it takes the parents to get things moving along. When my daughter was born, she did some baby modeling for Babies 'R Us. My wife and I had a lot of friends who worked there, so they asked us if she would model some stuff. She only made maybe $1000 when all was said and done. My tax accountant told me that a minor child who earns money can open an IRA and have their parents match dollar-for-dollar. So before she was 1-year-old she had a Roth IRA opened with a $1200 initial deposit. That money is now work about $3K, and when she turns retirement age (or 65) that initial investment will be worth about $250K with no additional contributions. When she gets her first job the rule will be: 10% into your IRA, 40% into savings, and the rest you can spend on popcorn and bubblegum. Any money the kids got as cash, they got to keep. Any money that came in as a check was deposited in their savings accounts. I ask my college sophomores if they have an IRA. Nearly all of them do not. Then I go through the finances of how much money they'll need at retirement (you need $3M today to retire at about $100K/year in interest income; today's students may need 3x-4x that amount to retire in 45 years). A few students open IRAs after that lecture because they get the point. If you can teach a young teenager about finance when they start working, you'll help them establish a solid, disciplined way to manage money that'll have the foresight of early retirement savings (and savings in general). We do a very poor job of teaching our children about finance. I think that's the reason for a lot of the financial bullshit that happens in the economy. A little education goes a long way.

    There is something known as the time value of money. (https://www.investopedia.com/terms/t/timevalueofmoney.asp) If you spend most of your early life earning money, that money will accumulate and generate more money for you (interest). My dad once told me that I should earn and save enough so that my money starts working for me, and I don't have to work for my money. I've had years when I've had a ton of time and no money. That sucks. And it's worse than having a ton of money and no time. You can accrue money, but you cannot accrue time. And you cannot live without money.

    What is it?

    Looks like a bug.
