  1. PM sent with info, thanks
  2. Do you work the Denver Colorado markets or do you have a referral who does? Looking at refi now after a bad experience with another mortgage company on a purchase caused us to have to pay all cash to buy. You can PM if you can help or want any details. Thanks
  3. Just a quick couple of items to think about, Check for any easements that are attached to the property I would imagine you will need to run all utilities into the property. gas, electric, water, sewer etc. All can be expensive so upgrade to the most largest size and volume that you could ever need and then add 25%. Expanding or upgrading later will cost even more than the original costs to run. Check for mineral rights on property. If you won't own them, think about what could happen if someone else wants to drill for oil or gas or mine for some minerals. Inspect for
  4. A couple of bottles that I brought back from Mexico last year were quite good. Both are Cuervo products. The first was Familia reserve Anejo, very smooth and nice all around. The other was 1800 Melenio extra Anejo, maybe one of the smoothest and best tequilas I have ever had. A perfect after dinner sipping drink. Way tastier than an Armagnac which I also love. Both were highly recommended to me by a friend and they were somewhat reasonably priced in La Paz Mexico as opposed to buying in US. When or if I can even find them in Colorado. Sadly they don't stay around very long at my hous
  5. Not sure why the filter would take out Ja####ta Hotel , really only one T in Ja####ta
  6. Akumal Mexico, about an hour and 20 minutes south of the Cancun airport Around Akumal some of the best housing deals are in the Taos section of the Bahia complex. Most of the houses and condos sit around the Bahia golf course. BTW the Bahia course is one of my all time favorite courses. We generally use a vrbo site and then try to connect direct with the owners for deals. We have negotiated great deals for our longer 4 to 8 week stays. Typically we can get a 2 bedroom with 2nd story penthouse unit for about $2000 per month and these are great high end units. We have also rented full
  7. I will try and get back in here on the weekend. It's been a very busy work week. I'm not a big poster but I'm happy to pass as much information as possible without boring everyone. I have been traveling to Mexico and central america for over 30 years. So I do have some experience to share. Let me know what type of things might be of interest. Over the years I have taken many an unmarked dirt road just to see where it goes. We have found many great beaches and friendly beach bars that wouldn't hardly ever be on any travel list in the past. With the growth there seems to be less real unfoun
  8. I have spent multiple weeks in all these places and they were all great. I have spent up to 8 weeks in Akumal. The cays of Belize would be the only place a car wouldn't be much use. But both CR and Akumal area are much better with car access to travel around to a bunch of different sites and adventures. All the areas were very safe for us during our stays there. We have done the Akumal area maybe five times with 4 weeks or longer. Really loved it over the years, though it is starting to get built up a little more. We spent 6 weeks on the Baja at the start of the year, including 3
  9. Foles will be starting this year and a good 2nd starting qb in SF and 2 qb leagues. Looks to be a good buy right now before the season really gets going
  10. Happened in our league and the teams who's bid were revealed aren't happy about it. But half the teams hadn't even put in their bids as of Tuesday night. So at least CBS reversed all the transactions and the waivers will run as they should. Sucks for everybody as the bids will be much higher than they would have been otherwise.
  11. I voted mostly. So until I get my flying cars that were promised to us back in the day, it is hard to be extremely proud. It is one of the few american failings that really bothers me.
  12. Broncos best choice is Devin White next best is Ed Oliver final option is TJ Hockenson Don't want them to take Lock
  13. Keep a close eye on any reaction to antibiotics and or antifungals. My wife had a few minor reactions to some antibiotics and such for a couple of months Then one day my wife had a severe reaction and it started with the burning and swelling of her feet. Hers was called Stevens Johnson syndrome and it escalated to TENS which stands for toxic epidural necrolysis syndrome i believe. But it was a horrible. It is a reaction where the body just goes into hyper drive and trys to kill everything off in an allergic reaction against the antibiotic. She burned off about 80% of her skin and inte
  14. I watched plenty of the CSU games the last several years and the Mountain west conference for decades. It is way easier to look good running away from Mountain west and West coast conference cornerbacks than most any other conference backs. You don't find many who will ever be drafted or even invited to a combine. Also in most of the games CSU played they were down by 3 td's plus. Much of the game the other teams were just playing a laid back prevent type zone. Against the few good teams they played you will see CB's in tight coverage on Williams and right there to bring him down if he mad
  15. He looks way better in games due to the level of competition he faced most games in the Mountain West. Plus that CSU team was always down huge all season long, they had to throw it up regardless. But he looked good fighting for the ball. Can't say I remember any CU or CSU wr's ever amounting to anything even when hyped. Paul Richardson comes to mind right off the bat. Everyone loved him coming out and he still hasn't had any real success. I will watch for his pro day numbers but unless some team grabs him day 2, I won't be bending over to get him till later in the rounds if at all. I wi
  16. Just finished a week with the accountants going over everything. In the end we are paying a pretty sizable check in to the IRS. I thought we had calculated our obligations pretty good for the year with our quarterly payments, but somehow I forgot about the 3.8% net investment income tax that Obama added in with the Obamacare fun pack. It's almost like my mind won't accept that tax or something. Anyway in the end though our marginal tax rate was down 1% and our effective tax rate was down about 2%. So it could have been worse. Feels like we are paying more but the marginal and effective
  17. I think he will be drafted between 1-10, but with the potential risks and size issues I believe he should more realistically be drafted in the 33-42 range or later. For my NFL team I wouldn't want anything spent before the 33-42 picks for him. Other NFL teams I want to spend the high picks of 1-10. I have watched too many 1st round qb's crap out due to risk issues and don't want my NFL team to go that route again. Really hurts the team growth to lose 1st round pick value when it craps out. I'm talking to you Mr Elway! Let's wait till next year to find a qb.
  18. We were in Prague last October and it was a beautiful city with so much to see and do. Like you we went with another couple who were long time friends. We stayed in a great hotel called the Aria library collection I believe. Great rooms by Europe standards. Multiple indoor and outdoor bars with great views. Amazing gardens onsite as well. Close to the bridge and well located for all the must see things. I would go back in a heart beat. But I will also add the Asian tourists were at times overwhelming. But it was like a wave and then they were gone off to somewhere else. So more a shor
  19. My father passed from the Glia cancer 37 years ago. My sister just passed 4 months ago from the glia cancer. Both were extremely quick deaths, about 3 months from diagnosis. But neither were really in any pain during that time. Both were in their 60's and much to young and vibrant to pass. Cell phones weren't an item for my dad and not a big item for my sister. So who knows what cell phone connections may be. All I know is that they were both mentally present up to the last 2 weeks and had no real pain during the fight. So I guess there are plenty of worse ways to go when it's your tim
  20. No shot for anything good but it has been a great contest this year. Last week was my worst week of the season by around 50 points. Dropped from 60th to 161st , totally went the wrong direction. At least the next season package will be paid for. Good luck to those fighting at the top.
  21. My bad, I did the quierer and I did it with the Mahommes, McCaffery, Fournette, Conner, Hill and it came back as only 1 team left. Then I did various groupings with my other players and Fournette and it came back as only 1 team left. I must have assumed it was Fournette who was the unowned player who made the team unique. Or I am totally using the quierer wrong.
  22. I believe this is my fourth time in the finals. Though I have never done all that great overall. Seems I always end up with another years subscription. But I have been good enough to generally make it to the 10th week or so in my bad seasons. Here's my team http://subscribers.footballguys.com/contest/2018/103588.php My team started off very common at the start of the year but now it is pretty unique at the finals. The great has been Mahommes, McCaffery, Conner, Hill. The additional players that have had impact include Rivers, Fournette, A Jones, C Davis and Godwin. P
  23. It doesn't sound like a big dollar item or major additional cost the way you are talking about it. You might want to consider taking this contractor to small claims court over the unauthorized additional costs. Small claim court Judges generally don't look kindly upon this type of contractor shenanigans and you could balance the costs back to even for you. The costs to go to small claims are very small and you don't need a lawyer. Most parties just represent themselves and the Judge really just looks at what seems fair or right. Should be an easy thing for you to do. In our state of Colora
  24. My draft was last night I took Bell 4th and picked up Conner in the 14th round. I can live with either one starting for the steelers. Of course I prefer Bell to be that player. Or who knows maybe they end up with a bell trade during the season and I have two starters. All I knew I wasn't letting the teams on the back side of the first round pick up the high end risk/reward that is Bell and also have a better high quality 2nd round pick. I feel I have more than enough quality to survive until this all shakes out. A 1st round and a 14th round pick is cheap to lock up the high scoring steele
  25. 60 refresh rate is bad for sports. You want 240 or at the very least 120 rate.
