    I recently saw a friend's "industrial imitation vinyl wood" flooring. It really looked great. Felt and looked like real wood. Apparently far cheaper than bamboo. What's your opinion? I'm hoping to put a wood floor in the kitchen in 2017 if I can stay home long enough. I love to travel and will soon be in Denmark, Spain and Andorra.

    I'm pretty jealous, I've never really travelled much. The furthest I've been from the U.S. is Haiti (before the earthquake). My wife spent a few weeks in Amsterdam, and visited Ireland and a few other places (she had Belgian waffles in Belgium).

    Traveling is cheaper than you think. I'm paying $522 for 5 flights, including the round trip to Europe and back. In Denmark I'll be staying with friends I met last year when travelling by myself in Africa. In Spain I have work which demands that I stay in a 4 star resort about 1.5 hours SW of Madrid at the base of a medieval castle where I will be forced to eat excellent food and drink great wine, all expenses paid for just conversing in English and having fun. The trip to Andorra involves volunteering for a climate change research project and although I will have expenses, they are tax deductible. Through booking.com I've found inexpensive, very well
    located lodging for 6 nights in Barcelona and 1 in Bilbao.

    Didn't Normbenign rather spend 500+ USD to get more guns or ammunition?

    THAT you can take to the bank, probably way underestimating the amount spent on automatic weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition. My guess is more like $5,000 dollars.

    I was *not* estimating how much money Normbenign has spent on his gun collection.
    My '500+ USD' figure includes any amount greater than or equal to 500 USD.
    I already know that one gun can cost much more than 500 USD.

    Personally, I would rather spend 500 USD on books than guns, but Normbenign's
    better at shooting and I am much better at reading and writing.

    I have no objection to Normbenign spending most of his money, if he wishes, on his gun collection.
    I just don't regard buying guns, if it was legally allowed, as the best use of my money.

    I don't know of enough evidence that women who own guns are significantly safer than
    women who don't own guns from being raped or murdered. (Most rapes are not committed
    by strangers who break into women's homes.) And I don't have to worry about anyone
    (such as a child) getting hurt in a gun accident.
