  1. negative - whew.....we are leaving Thurs...any reason to get another test closer since this one was only 3 days after exposure?
  2. Guy at work just tested positive - Pfizer vaccinated months ago......I was a few feet away talking with him at the office for about 5 minutes Thursday....Ive had a runny nose and sneezing last 2 days but I do have allergies....no fever or anything but we are supposed to leave for vacation late next week so Im going to get tested tomorrow. I had Moderna vax but these breakthroughs are making me nervous....
  3. 19, 16, 13....all virtual.......wife is uber conservative....
  4. So got my wife and I got second shot about 2 wks ago....I want to get back to semi normal but my kids havent gotten the shot yet so my wife is not comfortable with us doing anything ...im flying to Florida in a few weeks and she wants me to quarantine for a week when I get back and get a test before seeing the kids. .Ive seen some articles about carrying and passing on the virus even after vaccination but nothing conclusive... Any idea when theyll know more on this issue?
  5. just got a text from a parent/friend organizing a group play date for the kids this pm....smh
  6. Family of 5 in NJ - not really an alarmist but taking the cautious approach....cancelled all of our stuff....making kids stay home - few weeks of supplies and planning on a home bunker for a a few weeks just in case....luckily we both can work from home and schools are via internet next few weeks shocked to see very few in my area following suit - they are treating this like a snow day....kids are out playing together closely...adults going out to eat, going to parties and bars ...my kids are getting heat from their friends saying we were being ridiculous....our own friends and parents have said the same..... Im staying the course and if it was an overreaction so be it...but I am literally shocked at the carefree attitude in upper middle class area.
  7. I hope I am missing something - filled out the net price calculator for Lehigh and got $71,000!!! No merit aid/grant aid - only thing noted was possible $3,500 student loan....ugh. I really thought a 1480 on SAT would get some merit aid....I mean my wife and I do ok but nowhere near enough to pay full freight on a $70K yrly tuition.
  8. He's interested in engineering.....top 3 so far are Lehigh, Bucknell and Stevens......Lehigh would be his #1 but think it will be tougher to get merit aid there vs the others....all over $70K sticker....may have to look at 2d tier like Rutgers/Penn St for price which is much lower but also much lower on his preference list....
  9. so just started browsing this thread - some good stuff here...my Sr son has a top 3 but leaning toward general admissions based on getting another semester of grades in and we are nervous that any ED would limit financial merit aid which is key..... Our 1st pass on "need aid" was a whiff as we make good money - but living in metro area it goes quick and we only have saved enough $ for 1 yr per kid if tuition is around $50K per yr.....the sticker on his top 3 schools is going north of $70K per yr......just cant afford that and dont want both of us to get crushed in loans....Id be all in on $50K per yr but dont know if merit aid could stretch that far....his GPA is 3.95 (weighted) with a 1480 on SATs....hoping SATs could get him some merit aid but just have no idea what to expect in amounts or how it works - any thoughts, links or other threads to help out?
  10. good stuff anyone have the treadmil....its really good but nowhere near the content of the bike...lousy music and not enough beginner modes (ie:couch to 5K program) - I know the bike has been out much longer....does the content build re music and more offering for beginners?
  11. ..we replaced our gym membership - where we would never go - with a Peloton treadmill....very cool and love using it as well as the stretching/lifting classes.....we have a regular bike and are looking at upgrading to the Peloton bike....good info in here - biggest for me is how rough is it to get used to the seat? Ive taken spin classes before and the seat is so painful it almost ruins the workout lol.....also I see there are lock in shoes - worth it? Definitely using the at home stuff more than going to the gym - should pay for itself within 2-3 yrs even with the monthly membership
  12. I had some black market Juul carts and I gotta say they tasted funky.....not saying they were tainted but I def noticed the difference before hearing about the outbreak - I stopped using as it was hitting way to harsh and wasnt worth it..... Until my state goes legal so can be sure ill be sticking to flower.....I love vaping it - have a Mighty which worked awesome for a yr....started losing vape clouds....finally cleaned it out good using the vids online and it is hitting much better....vaping IMO is smoother, easier, quicker, better on my lungs, convenient with much less smell/mess....
  13. great thread - thanks for all the info - currently $457K for 22 yrs left on my 30 yr 4.625% loan - kids going to college soon.....would really like to move to a 15 yr and build more equity...house could appraise anywhere from $530K-580K so a bit of a crap shoot.....does it make sense to wait until rates (hopefully) go lower and I get the equity a bit higher to ensure I hit the 80% mark? if it ends up at 85% or so would i need pts or mortgage insurance? also didnt calculate closing fees/costs - do those get rolled into the loan if any? converting to a 15 yr would add $500 per month to payment (not easy but doable) but cut 7 yrs and increase principal by $1,000 per month any thoughts? thx!
  14. invested in the Mighty vape....outstanding....best device I ever had! not as portable as Pax 2 but still fits in pocket and works so much better!
  15. so finally was able to get the generic in my pharmacy from Cialis to Tadafil....price went from $140 for 3 pills to $120 for 4 pills....WTF...thought it would drop to like $5 per month..
