man, you're making this too wide for people to advise you on... how about setting up a budget first. then think about how much REAL free time you can afford to spend on the degree. good degrees take time and effort. i'm sure there're degree mills out there that can satisfy your options if all you wa...

Re: interesting response, taxico

WARNING: skewed view ahead! Mostly I will live in Singapore a very few months each year to escape the Canadian winters, and also take care of health physicals and dental care. It's actually worth it. As for whether I would want to be there after 65, I'm not sure. The Medicare (for which I qualify) w...

Re: :)

when i visit my parents in singapore, i don't always rent a car as it's for short periods of time (1 week at a time). when i take their dogs out, i normally call for a cab and tell them that i intend to transport dogs of whatever size and relay that info to the driver. one of the main problems is th...
