A variety of thoughts:

Why do the new light bulbs (CFL’s) never last as long as they are supposed to?

I have replaced my front porch light and back porch light at least 3 times each in the past 12 months.  These expensive bulbs are supposed to last 8 to 15 times longer than the incandescent version I paid less than a buck apiece for.

Just where is that missing sock?

When I get up in the morning I either wear two matching socks, or no socks.  I never wear just one sock, or three socks. It’s always 2 or Zero.

I do my own laundry.  No one else is messing with me and my sock collection.

When did buying a new car become an investment?

This has bugged me for awhile.  But after seeing another TV commercial using that investment word, I decided to share it with you too.

Several years ago they stopped using sticker price to sell cars.  They switched to monthly payments.  My wife and I own our cars with no payments.  The investment we make is in keeping them in shape and running.
