I would have asked for the keys and told him to hold down the fort while I went for a spin.


I would be terrified of banging it up  :-D

My favorite car.   :drool:

It is an impressive machine for sure but my favorite would be my first car - paid $500 for in 1974.  I would have to add a couple zeros to it to own it today  :'(

Walter,

For another tidbit about Nevada, in this case, average household income, if you go to the website at https://news.yahoo.com/state-where-people-most-money-111349266.html and scroll down to #24, you will see that according to the study mentioned at the website Nevada has an average household income of $81,496. Nationwide, the average household income is $88,607. If you wish, you can check out other states. For example, Texas, where I live, is at #18 at $87,260.

I think these things are not really representative of the average person.  There growing rifts between the super wealthy, wealthy, middle, and not, means one billionaire, a bunch of multi millionaires,  living in your local makes things look better on average polls.  The newspaper reported 22,000 job opening in Reno right now.  The problem is the pay on these jobs is many are still sub $20/hr and $20/hr is not enough to rent or buy a home here anymore.  We are having to ebb and flow with our weekly dough #'s dependent on our employee situation.  Our best worker, who works everyday with us, is off to pre med in AZ next week.   She only worked 15 hours a week and that is about the max we offer workers.  College kids here were our backbone but they are not applying like they did since the pandemic reopening.  Our 2 disabled workers are solid but their skill set is limited to dishwashing, box folding, and things like that.  We cut down to 4 days a week  from 5-8pm and I have worked out the numbers so if need be we can get by with 1 non disabled person helping every day if it gets to this and it sure is leaning that way........

Have any plague infected chipmunks migrated from Lake Tahoe to Reno?

https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/news/2021/08/03/plague-south-lake-tahoe-chipmunks-el-dorado-county-kiva-beach-taylor-creek-visitor-center-closed/5465639001/

This is the first I have heard about this.  I have never seen a chipmunk in our neighborhood or the shops.

Walter,

I agree with you. A while back I posted on the blog of a very good finance expert after he had said that the wealth of the country had reached an all-time high. And he also said that the percent of peoples' debt relative to their incomes was at one of its lowest levels ever. In my reply, I mentioned that his numbers were skewed by the contributions of a large number of millionaires and billionaires--about 18.6 million millionaires and almost 2800 billionaires. I was hoping for a response to my post but I never received it. Had he broken down the numbers by quartiles or even better, deciles, we would have seen the impact of the millionaires and billionaires in the distribution.

Sometimes, median values are used in studies like the one I cited but they also reflect the impact of the super wealthy. For example, the average net worth of Americans is $748,000 whereas the median net worth is about $121,700. Your workers will be much lower than the median.
