    For me, it's right across the main country road running through Apple Valley from the nearest Home Depot. I usually start there and then over to Menards when necessary.

    Look, I'm not going out of my way to buy from them. But A) They're conveniently located. B) They usually have what I want. C) They have decent prices. Or rather, they have prices that are within the gas-factor adder for driving to Home Depot. D) I like shopping locally HQed stores. Minnesota if possible. If it means more money stays in the midwest, great!

    If that was the case for me, I'd almost exclusively shop at HD

    ...Now watch the housing market crash just in time for Christmas.


    I kid, I kid. Still, watch the headlines on the housing market because I'm betting the news media goes off its collective hinges following that story.

    This guy can burn in hell for his business practices. Glad to see him arrested for something.

    And if he drops the price, the charges will be dropped.

    He'll probably skate, maybe with a fine and a sternly-worded warning.

    Nah. The SEC has been looking for someone to make an example of who doesn't have a legal team that can stand up to them. Especially nice because this guy loses the PR and sympathy battle in a shutout.

    When I graduated, CCT was a bit over $6K for tuition, room & board. Now, almost 40 years later, it's 10x that. Something is not right.

    Just as a comparison, ice @ Walker was $30/hr back then. Now ice @ Cheel is around $100/hr. Obviously, Scott Smalling gets it!

    I'd like to amend an old college prof's statement:

    "If I had to go back and do it all over again, I'd be a defense contractor."

    I'm a little surprised to see 'socialist paradise' Sweden with $5.5 billion in arms sales.

    This is ironic, because I'm a defense contractor and if I had to go back and do it all over again, I'd be a college professor.

    Sweden is proud of their combat jets. I don't know much about them, only that my college buddy from Sweden said that they were a point of national pride.

    The original statement was that he'd be a drug dealer. That's pretty lucrative too, and far from illegal.
