  1. We stumbled upon the cure to the common cold? Go us! Boost me.
  2. Thank you, it might have been a blessing in disguise. Instead of "Lower 3" seats that I had selected through Ticketmaster. I purchased 9th row "Floor C" tickets through Stubhub tonight. Also ended up switching venues, Belmont would have worked great for so many reasons, but Prudential Center, Newark on a Saturday will be so much easier than Belmont on a Weds. I've never FBG Cornholed before, but first beer is on me @comfortably numb if you secured tickets.
  3. I hate Ticketmaster. Had reasonable seats, but some error wouldn't allow me to check out at my device. Tried a different browser and then tried the Ticketmaster app on my phone, all no good. Guess I'll be scrounging on Stubhub
  4. I saw the announcement yesterday, but didn't see anything about ticket availability. Does the whole tour go on sale Friday? Or is it staggered? I'll be looking for Belmont. 🤘
  5. Tesla carries very little true inventory. You can not normally walk into a store and select the exact car you're going to buy like the traditional dealership model. Most 3s and Ys are shipped to regional areas and matched to buyers en-route. When something like this happens, it's typically the result of a sale not going through (for whatever reason) for a car previously matched to another buyer.
  6. For adults, Moderna is a higher dose than Pfizer, which I'd guess is why it's somewhat more effective. They will reconfigure the vaccine dose for children, so this difference will likely be reduced. I'm signing my 10 year old up for whatever shot is first available.
  7. Official Model S Plaid 7:35 lap @ Nurburgring
  8. Do you mean appraisal would be based on before work is done for the rehab loan? We are actually already 2 weeks into the renovation, so if there's some benefit to getting things lined up ahead of time, I already screwed the pooch. I do still have the contact info for the guy you gave me in CT last year. I assume your recommendation hasn't changed, but I'll PM you in a month or two when we're closing down the renovation to make sure.
  9. Thanks, the entire refi would be well under jumbo limits (is Jumbo really ~$550k now?). The HELOC is a significant amount (over 25% of my mortgage balance), so would take several years to aggressively pay off. With the recent hot market and whatever extra value we are adding with the renovation, my best guess is that we'll have about 45% equity after an appraisal. I assume that a new appraisal completely incorporates the new sq. ft. and that they don't go off previous data. Is there a formal way to initiate this or is it built into the refi process? I've refi'd numerous times over the years, but not after making significant changes to any property.
  10. We are in the middle of a kitchen renovation. We are expanding the kitchen into our 3 season room (also called a Breezeway in these parts) while converting the 3 season room into living space. We will add about 250 square ft. in total, while renovating and expanding our kitchen. We also need to add a second floor renovation soon (like next year), to add an additional bedroom and master bathroom. I have a HELOC to pay for the kitchen renovation. Once it is finished, I am to refi, pay off the HELOC and probably max out to 80% LTV to provide some funding for the next second floor renovation. Are there any pitfalls I should be aware of? I assume I'll pay a slightly higher rate for a cash out refi. We refi'd last year to 3.125%, so even with the cash out, it seems like we should be on par or better.
  11. And DO NOT pay a fee to enter a bi-weekly program. I saw this a few years back, not sure how common it is now.
  12. It Connecticut, businesses apparently can. My (very small) company mandated it 3-4 weeks ago after seeking advice from CBIA. We had 3 hold-outs (out of 8 employees) and all will be fully vaccinated within the next 2 weeks. Last week, we also all received an envelope with a few Benjamins as a thank you. That was unexpected.
  13. Same for me. First Moderna nothing. Second Moderna almost nothing.
  14. My oldest will be 12 in August. Second oldest is 10. We live in CT and we have a high vaccination rate (yay), but we have to travel to VA (Wedding) at the end of the month and Ohio (re-affirmation ceremony) in early August (before oldest's b'day). This "everything is back to normal" #### is pissing me off. Can we at least wait until all citizens can opt for the vaccine?

  16. Transplant in CT for 23 years. This is pretty spot on. From what I understand, much of our housing surge is due to NYC people moving to "the suburbs" and access to Metro North is a huge benefit. So, outside of the Stamford to New Haven Metro North commute, housing prices may not be escalating quite as much. However, I'm not an expert on this. Everything post Covid costs more. We have a rental house in Milford. Rented to a 50s couple from Colorado a few years ago, they moved for similar reasons as you. They rented our house while they figured out where they wanted to live and moved back to Co after 18 months. I'd suggest that you consider renting, but the rental market is at it's peak as well. Same reasons as above (NYC transplants). Feel free to PM.
  17. Thanks, didn't really think it would but a quick google search wasn't 100% reassuring. ETA: and just ordered a Model Y.
  18. CT here. I drive a Model 3, so I don't pay as much attention to gas as I used to, but recommended my wife top off the Pilot and fill up the 5 gallon can for my tractor today. So... As I'm filling up both when I get home from work, only hi-test is available. Hope it doesn't ruin the tractor, but sounds like it might get used in the Pilot anyway.
  19. To be fair to them, they have watched Clone Wars numerous times. They know the episodes well enough to comment on whether they are precursors to The Bad Batch (Echo, plus whatever Bad Batch characters they added in season 7?). It's the adults that might be short changed. I agree with teaching patience, but it should be important and relies on if he adults need the background story to understand the new show.
  20. Started watching suggested Clone Wars episodes with my kids to prep for Bad Batch, but are these necessary? We have a ton more to go and I know they're anxious to watch the first episode. Using this guide, we're still in season 2 https://collider.com/best-star-wars-clone-wars-episodes-to-watch-before-bad-batch-disney-plus-show/
  21. After a life of building gaming PCs, an HTPC and most recently a PC with massive storage options for DVR and video content for myself, I made the decision to put my kids into the xbox platform for gaming. This allowed them to play with their cousins and immediate friends and I didn't have to tinker. Fast forward and my oldest kid (11!) has friends who only play java Minecraft and PC based Roblox. He's been asking for a gaming laptop for awhile now, he wants to save his allowance for one (I don't think he recognizes how long this will take). We gave them the long retired HTPC as a PC to help with school work (and covid remote learning), but now it's Discord this and Java Minecraft that and fighting over the one Xbox to play Sea Of Thieves (since the integrated video on the HTPC isn't powerful enough). I overheard discord conversations and I guess he's the joke of the group with his 20 framerate on Minecraft. Is it crazy to try to source a video card to plug into the old HTPC? (motherboard is https://www.asrock.com/mb/intel/h61mu3s3/ ) Or am I stuck with building a whole new PC? And I realize now is not the time to buy a GPU, even the minimum level needed for Sea of Thieves. Why didn't anyone tell me that kids these days are into PC gaming, don't sell out to the consoles....
