    We don't so much camp as it's more of a summer home for us. We are on a seasonal site in a campground about an hour south of our house. Spend pretty much every weekend there between April and October.

    We also have a large deck with a screen room, a golf cart for putting around the CG and a swimming lake.

    Not our actual camper but this is what it looks like:

    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Nice! My parents had one like that in Door County for about 20 years.
    Spent a lot of time there over the years.
    The campground had a lot of permanent spots, so we never actually moved the trailer.

    What are sellers going to do with the new PayPal or Venmo federal rules of $600 or more snd you get a 2099? Used to be $20000 AND 200 transactions? This sucks and will affect your taxes. Not a fan. Thoughts?

    I have been trying to read about. Not easy to find solid answers. I've heard it's based on the state your in, I've heard friends and family transactions don't count and I've heard they do.
    Coukdnt even find updated info on Paypals web page. It still had the $20k and 200 transactions a few days ago.

    I would pay $150 for solid legal advice to be sure what you're doing before it's too late to change. Personally, paying with a check still works for me. Not that difficult to go to the bank.

    Make a determination how much is taxable, and pay the taxes.

    F&F transactions won't be reported by PayPal/Venmo/etc ... but you are also expected/required to use G&S if you're buying/selling items privately.

    https://newsroom.paypal-corp.com/202...tions-Answered

    If your total G&S payments received reach or exceed $600, all transactions will be reported by the financial service to the IRS, and you will need to pay the appropriate taxes, if any. What taxes you pay depends on how you report that income, the cost basis of the item you sold, etc. See a tax advisor.

    (Note that you always had to self-report this income and pay any applicable taxes; the change is in reporting law for the financial institutions, not to any tax rate or exemption limit).

    The Just-A-Fold III version is also great since the height is easily adjustable.
    I get the 24" x 12" size and that works on almost everything.

    That might be a better option since the 12" works on taller books as well.

    I noticed a few days ago a tape of a french audiobook, available for next to nothing.
    The seller did say in the posting that it was part 11-12 of a set, but I decided to get it anyway.

    Here is the random bit : I realised at home that I only had tapes 1-10, and missing those specific ones!
    Absolutely lucky

    From twitter !
    Mark Cuban launched an online pharmacy that offers over 100 generic drugs at an affordable price with a goal of being “radically transparent” in its price negotiations with drug companies. It purchases drugs direct from manufacturers, bypassing middlemen to lower the price.


    The website shows some price difference. For instance, something that is sold 2.5k in US drugstores, seems to be available at only 17
    Almost seems to good to be true, but it's promoted by Mark Cuban, and I doubt he would associate with something as touchy for which he could be sued if it's not true :

    When I read about Eddie’s widowed bride,
    And something touched me deep inside
    The day the bumbler died.”
