I would only do one thing and one thing only.  Dethrone ebay.  FVFs at 2% for everybody with no insertion fees, Chinese sellers prohibited, fair rules, beers in the mail to all the sellers for their suffering under the current regime and a big celebration for regime change.  Can I get an Amen here?

    Travel all of the 50 states in the u.s. and get a new suv for my mother since she likes vehicles that are a little bit higher off from the ground.  I have been to kentucky,oklahoma, arkansas, texas, illinios, washington, california, idaho, and nevada.  So their is plenty for me to see when I win.-weshar75

          There is at least 1 gated community where I live, one way in, one way out.  Even guests can not drive into the community, they have to park out on the main road and when somebody is hosting a party, there are some pretty nice cars parked on the side of the road. Police officers can not go in there unless there is a call for service.

          We used to have an investment property at the Plantation in PV and they were pretty strict about letting visitors/guest inside the gates. I think the neighborhood you mention not allowing guests is over the top. Typically, residents in private communities contact the entry gate and gives the guard a list of guest coming to visit in order to avoid a fiasco.

                Talking about Epping Forest. This is what I have heard from a spouse of a police officer. Maybe they do let guests come in, but they don't let them park in the road. But if they don't let police officers in without proof of a call, then I can see them also not letting guests drive in. Oh well.

                  But even that on a day to day basis that will burn thru you pocket unless you just get delux hotel rooms.

                  Let's see. $100 million after taxes invested very conservatively can still net $1.5 million after taxes.

                  $1500/day for a place to stay$500/day for meals and beverages
                  $500/day for tours and activities
                  $2500/day * 365 = $912,500

                  $10,000 every other week for first class airfare to a new location = $260,000

                  $7000/week for ongoing expenses (health insurance, maintaining a home you hardly use, etc.) = $364,000

                  Total = $1,536,500

                  Jeez - you have to take almost 40 grand a year out of the principal. You'd be broke in no time.

                  Seriously, it's possible to spend far more, but how much can a reasonable person really spend as an annual average?

                    It's funny that you mentioned the Plantation at PV as I l love that community! my husband and I got a tour of the neighborhood and clubhouse with the sales rep. We couldn't get access inside which is why we had to resort to using the sales associate for the community .

                    The home prices were a little more reasonable for a private community but the HOA fees are insane! You have to join the golf club if you purchase property whether you golf or not and the dues were almost $900 a month!

                          Many private communities do not allow overnight parking on the road and some even disallow parking in their own driveway. I think that's going a bit overboard.

                          Most of these private communities maintain their own roads so they often do prevent police officers from entering unless they have a valid reason or proof of call as you had stated.

                            The HOA fees are pricey for that area but they offered many perks including unlimited golf and a private ocean front beach club. We had purchased a lot and built a spec home which we sold back in 2006.

                              CDanaT,

                              Pester away!

                              How's this for a home gym:

                              The BEST way of getting a full body workout into your busy schedule is now available in the Palm Springs Area.

                              If you have very little time, the ROM machine may be the fitness workout machine for you. The ROM offers a better workout in 4 minutes than 45 minutes on conventional exercise equipment. This machine provides a well-rounded exercise program; stretching, strength training, muscle toning, and aerobic training.

                              Despite claims that aerobic workouts require at least 20-45 minutes, this machine can achieve the same in a few minutes. The ROM's designer state the machine takes you through a far wider range of motion (ROM) than other machines can offer. As a result far more muscle is exercised, and exercise duration can be decreased.

                              __________________________

                              Not sure of the current price but a few years ago it was $14,400. With a jp though I've thought of perhaps opening a gym, calling it VALHALLA and have hot babes dressed like Valkyries greeting everybody that comes in. Every time the door opens Ride of the Valkyries would play on the sound system.

                              Years ago there was a guy named Zuver, a pastor in fact, that turned his garage intop Zuver's gym, then moved to a bigger place. An old issue of Ironman did an articlde on it - "Oversize fibergalsss gorillas stood at the entrance..."

                              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
