  1. House three doors down in my nice neighborhood is going for 185K. It's not a peach of a property, but for some people it's an upgrade in life. I've been watching and I'm concerned because a lot of the people looking at it have an investor vibe to them. That means renters and typically renters aren't optimal neighbors. They don't invest in the house (understandably) and neither does the landlord. The few renters on the street aren't quick with shoveling the snow or mowing the lawn.
  2. There is something to be said for leaving WNY in your prime earning years and then returning when you are established in life. I am better off today having done that, rather than staying in WNY my whole career.
  3. I live in Buffalo. When I go out with my Bills ballcap*, no one says anything. I'm OK with that. * spell checker doesn't like ballcap as one word, but I Googled and it is one word
  4. I never heard of the place. I asked a friend and he told me it was the old "Pink Flamingo" then I remembered it.
  5. I went to RIT. The dozen sunny days I had there were great. They had a walk called "the quarter mile" ...just brutal weather elements. There was a sun dial on campus, but never any sun to read it by.
  6. WNY is moribund career wise. The number of unemployed is rising (May 2024 DOL statistics). The rosy job growth predicted by Zillow is not happening. That you make 6-figures could be a source of cognitive bias. Just because WNY is better than the past, it doesn't mean it competes with the rest of the nation. The many Expats on this board are examples of people where moving to WNY would be a step down.
  7. I wish WNY had the job market to match this good news. It's cheap to live here because no one makes any money. If you make more than $20 an hour, you are doing well for yourself. It's sad. I ask my children to move here--they take one look at the job prospects and say no thank you.
  8. I'm thinking more along the lines of 62 year old Sheryl Crow. (but she has to check her politics at the door)
  9. Bill is practically child molesting here. Me OTH? I'm the opposite. Bring me a Cougar.
  10. That's a valid point. Without busting the cap, they could have brought in a UDFA to spur competition. Camp fodder. It's too late now, even the kickers only semi-decent are signed somewhere.
  11. He had his choice of teams to go to. That he chose a nemesis of the Bills is no coincidence.
  12. You can have a clean liver if you want it. The liver can recover. Abs? I don't know you well enough to say. Some people can get them, and some are just too far gone
  13. The decision to cut Bass would be a collaboration of Beane and McDermott. At this moment in time, Beane is probably saying No to cutting Bass, for all the salary cap reasons discussed here.
  14. I admit it... I once called Josh a turnover machine and said there was an issue there. I give myself a break though. It was said in the heat of the moment, right after he threw 3 interceptions to the Jets opening day last year. He wasn't very good in that game. But when you look at his body of work as a whole, his interception rate is around average.
  15. It's hard to find a simple text version of the schedule. Here is one to cut and paste. If you put paste it into an editor with a monospaced font, like Windows notepad, the columns come out evenly: PS1 Saturday August 10 Bears Bills 1:00 p.m. PS2 Saturday August 17 Bills Steelers 7:00 p.m. PS3 Saturday August 24 Panthers Bills 1:00 p.m. 1 Sunday September 8 Cardinals Bills 1:00 p.m. 2 Thursday September 12 Bills Dolphins 8:15 p.m. 3 Monday September 23 Jaguars Bills 7:30 p.m. 4 Sunday September 29 Bills Ravens 8:20 p.m. 5 Sunday October 6 Bills Texans 1:00 p.m. 6 Monday October 14 Bills Jets 8:15 p.m. 7 Sunday October 20 Titans Bills 1:00 p.m. 8 Sunday October 27 Bills Seahawks 4:05 p.m. 9 Sunday November 3 Dolphins Bills 1:00 p.m. 10 Sunday November 10 Bills Colts 1:00 p.m. 11 Sunday November 17 Chiefs Bills 4:25 p.m. 13 Sunday December 1 49ers Bills 8:20 p.m. 14 Sunday December 8 Bills Rams 4:25 p.m. 15 Sunday December 15 Bills Lions 4:25 p.m. 16 Sunday December 22 Patriots Bills 1:00 p.m. 17 Sunday December 29 Jets Bills 1:00 p.m. 18 TBD TBD Bills Patriots TBD Or, here is an Excel version of the schedule...if the upload works. bills-schedule.xls
