Rich,

Those words, exactly as you have presented them will be used when I speak to my son.

Thanks,

Joe


I hope your son listens, mine doesn't seem to get it.

You might be able to live on that in the NYC area. But you wouldn't make that much here. Hard as it is to believe, $52,000 a year in this area isn't really much at all. In the early '90s, a mechanic who used to work for me asked to come to my office and have a talk about where the company was going. At that time he was pulling in about $80,000 a year with overtime and his wife didn't work and he was hurting. Just to give you an idea how bad it is here for some folks. He just barely qualified to buy a house. And he wasn't happy with how small it was. Rough place to live.

Which is why I left Jersey and moved to Oklahoma! (OK, my Okie wife had a little bit to do with it, too!) :D

The above comments are my own because I don't know if anyone would care about my opinions anymore.

I hear that. We can't leave, not sure I'd want to. But, I'm sure we'll get to the point where it's just too expensive.
