    Jellyfish and Stingrays

    For almost 40 years of going to the beaches of North Carolina and South Carolina, I had never been stung by a jellyfish. I've been stung three of the past four years now...multiple stings two of those three years. They didn't hurt too bad, more of a burning sensation, but they all left a mark where their tentacles contacted me. A white vinegar and water mix sprayed onto the area will bring relief quickly...not sure about peeing on the sting, though. Even though I know they are there, I've never encountered a sting ray that I'm aware of...hope I didn't just jinx myself...
  3. I haven't had a cigar since October...pretty typical for me as I don't smoke cigars in the cold weather. Look to break that streak very soon, probably this afternoon...
  4. My wife bought me a nice watch for Christmas...

    Just in case you missed it

    Just wondering since everything I'm hearing here in the US, politically speaking in regards to Cuba, is heading back in the other direction...of course, with US news, you never know what is true and what isn't anymore...

    Hamlet Liberation

    What is happening this weekend ?

    Awesome! Another Hokie on the board! I have a few bottles of Elmer in reserve from past purchases. Took one yesterday, as well as the Col. E.H. Taylor Small Batch. ETL is one of my favorites, although, everything from Buffalo Trace Distillery is one of my favorites. Our group will likely drink as much or more next week with the Hoos coming to town...I think all of our streaks come to an end on Friday... If you ever make to Blacksburg for a game, let me know! You are more than welcome at our tailgate!

  11. I used to use a guillotine, but for the last couple of years, I use my pocket knife and gently cut the top cap off. The blade I use is razor sharp cuts like a hot knife through butter.

    1.6 Billion?

    A single ticket purchase in South Carolina won the jackpot.

    1.6 Billion?

    Your earnings (lottery winnings) will be taxed, period. But after, you are correct, only earned interest/other income is taxed. However, unless you are a resident of Florida, you are still liable for state taxes in your state of residency. Also, you can only "cash out" in the state in which you purchased the lottery ticket.

    1.6 Billion?

    But you would be in the highest tax bracket which is now 37%, plus state income taxes, if you state has them. Your still on the hook for the other 9% + state taxes on April 15th, 2019...
