|1 day 21 hours ago||Berlin||
was a very cool city- it has a more modern, cosmopolitan feel than Munich (which is pure Bavarian). A lot of history with The Wall, but good luck finding any remmnants of it. Food was great, of course. FWIW, it didn't feel all that spread out, we had no problem getting around, great wallking city.

Properly boiled, with drawn melted butter and a perfect ear of corn on the side. Bottle of good, ice cold brut champagne. Actual Key Lime pie (meringue style) for desert.
edit: good idea mgohillbilly, lose one of the lobsters and substitute a dozen raw gulf oysters!

a few weeks ago; now ready for the new season....July?
|1 week 4 days ago||Taxes were done in January||
This year I received a substantial refund, and I am not happy about it. Usually I end up owing a small amount to fed and state. Made adjustments to withholding for this year. Also, I am in a profession that is a big target for the "fake tax return to collect a refund" fraud scheme, another reason to file early.

>250K debt after I finished college/med school, was able to hold my own during residency. But once I got into practice I: 1) replaced my 12 yr old car with something practical/reliable 2) moved into a slightly larger apartment 3) put all of my "increased income" into paying off my loans as quickly as possible. Once my loans were paid off in 5 yrs, what became "extra income" went into 1) saving for home ownership 2) getting caught up on saving for retirement. Yeah, it was definitely delayed gratification (I didn't buy a home until age 40), but being debt-free and having something put aside took a huge weight off me.
If possible, I would at least try to service the interest while a resident, and then attack the principle WEUTMK once you get into practice. Reward yourself once you pay off those loans.

right now. He basically was the arranger for the MMB when I was a student, and pretty much most of the time afterward. My thoughts to Gail and his family. And dammit, the Rocky Horror Halftime Show would have been hilarious....

but older sibs went to UM in the late 60's. I remember watching the 1970 Rose Bowl. After that, it was a matter of time; I applied to exactly two schools (and Stanford- was wait-listed) and was accepted early October of my Senior year. The rest is history...4-year member of the MMB, and I have been to every UM Rose Bowl since '78

we were taking the last shot to try to win it, and it just didn't go down. This season has exceeded expectations, we get to hang a banner, and we Go Blue!
