  1. Ray, I signed up for the webinar and it was today. True to form with me and computers. . . I screwed it up and was unable to watch the webinar. But all was not lost. There was an attachment that had a great deal of info on TFL. So it all worked out. Thanks for the tip. Jim
  2. RV I didn't realize there were no co-pays with Medicare. Jim
  3. I turn 65 in October. I'm surprised at how easy the switch-over is from Tricare Select to Medicare and Tricare For Life. Most all of the process is automatic unless I want to decline Medicare Part - B (which I don't). So other than setting up an account at the Medicare website. . . I've done pretty much nothing, which I've become very good at. Of course, in October I may be singing a different tune, but so far this is a breeze. Jim
  4. Kerrville is a wonderful town. I have spent time there every year for the last five years. Good luck with your sale. Jim
  5. You don't make any profit or suffer any loss until the position is closed. Berkshire Hathaway has been a long time holder of Apple stock. So I would assume their cost basis is well south of today's price. Jim
  6. Disclaimer ; I'm not a tech guy, so take what I say here with a grain of salt. I guess the roll out of 5G is going to solve a lot of Verizons problems with this data issue. I got on their unlimited data plan when it came out and I like it. I have however noticed a reduction in their service coverage since the unlimited plan came out. I'm full time and tend to go to some of the same area's repeatedly. Since the plans introduction I have gone to area's that used to have a good strong Verizon signal and now have weak or sporadic signals or none at all. I've noticed it outside of Chattanooga,TN. I visit my brother there and have never had an issue with a signal until this last visit. He also has Verizon Wireless and agrees the service has gone down hill. I notice the same thing around Kerrville TX. I think Verizon over sold this unlimited thing and don't have the infrastructure to support the demand. So do you think it's possible in some area's with high demand they weaken the strength of the signal coming off the towers? By doing this they would keep the bulk of their customers happy in the high density areas at the cost of losing a few customers in the outlying area's. I've been with Verizon for decades and have no plan to switch. I think they will work this out and they seem to be in the forefront of the 5G innovation. Jim
  7. John, weren't you on this forum some time ago? Jim
  8. Sounds like you made a good decision on buying and selling you Tesla stock. Good luck in the search for a new home. Jim
  9. You put some plastic gloves on and rinse your sewer line with fresh water. It's really not that difficult. Jim
  10. I’m in the Texas Hill Country and it registered 108 degrees in the shade today. And I’m really proud of my old RV. I keep my AC set at 77 during the day and anything under 100 degrees and my AC will cycle off and on during the day. But the last few days have really been a test. This is my fifth summer in the same spot here. The RV is in the direct sun all day until just about 5PM. Today she didn’t cycle off. The best I could maintain was 82 degrees in the direct sun. But she maintained a reduction of 26 degrees under direct sun with just one 15K Colman AC. Now my RV is smaller than most at 34 feet. I also have just two slides and being an older RV the interior height of the slides is less than modern RV’s. But still, I think it’s impressive. I have slide toppers which greatly help keep things cool. I also have window awnings all the way around which also help and led lighting inside. For those of us in Southwest this week. . . how is your RV doing in the heat?
