    I was telling a gas station owner about my stepson dying and he asked me of what? I said, liver disease. He replied, I have liver problems myself. I said how's that? My doctor tells me it's from drinking to much soda. George

    I received the 2 crossing gate boards I had repaired from Logic Rail weeks ago and today because it's raining I decided to reinstall them. The trouble is I had my second Covid shot yesterday and I feel so bad I'll have to try again another day. George

    If you worked for the RR more then 10 years you don't get SS. You don't even get Medicare. You get RR Medicare which always seem to confuse our doctors who seem to charge Medicare and then don't get paid. It all goes back to the 1937 social security and railroad retirement act. I don't think...

    I think this is why RR retirement is separate from SS. Railroads all ready had a retirement system in place when SS was started. Because I had more then 10 years working for the Railroad all the money I paid in from others employments ended up in my RR retirement fund. Also because I was...

    Quoting myself. That doesn't count what goes on the implants. My father's advice to me when I was 14 was not to play the horses and don't get involved with to many loans. I didn't take his advice on the horses but I did on the loans. It's a good things because my wife and I spend 20% of our...
