    NTTA Tolls for OOS (Out of State) plates

    Great, then my toll money should not be funding west Texas roads - BUT IT IS!! Your argument is ridiculous. Gas tax is the most efficient and fair way to pay for public roads. You drive on roads, you pay for roads. You drive more, you pay more. Additionally, utilizing the gas tax would...

    NTTA Tolls for OOS (Out of State) plates

    Forward all you want AGH, I am leaving North TAXES behind. Golf, it's double taxation because we already pay taxes for fuel and to a lesser extent property that are supposed to go towards ROADS. But NTTA knows they can extort money out of relatively wealth North Texas to spend wherever they...

    I find double taxation illegal.

    NTTA Tolls for OOS (Out of State) plates

    Oh I know you can register an OOS plate, but given I'd like to let NTTA pound sand as often as I can, what enforcement mechanisms do they have for OOS owners. I've been subjected to NTTA's illegal taxes for over 20 years, I'm looking to get a few free rides while I kiss them goodbye forever.

    NTTA Tolls for OOS (Out of State) plates

    Anybody know if NTTA charges out of state plates?? If they do, what danger is there of not paying?? Since almost all of my cars are registered out of state at this point, I'm ready to collect some services for illegal payment charges previously remitted to that bastard agency.

    Kitchen Lighting

    I used LED tape to create up and down lighting on my cabinets. It's pretty easy to do. The wiring is almost all low voltage so no worries about lighting yourself on fire. I am using LED strip tape all over our new house. Go to one of the LED stores in the Dallas area to get ideas or...

    Traveling with dog

    I'd rather knock the mutt out for the drive than listen to his whimpering.

    Traveling with dog

    Finally reaching the point where we are relocating the dogs from N. Texas to NM. One of our dogs does not like driving in the car. Any tips on knocking the beast out for the 10 hours to NM?? A dopey 10 hours is better than a panting, fidgeting 10 hours.

    Moving to the Frisco area - is Grayhawk a good neighborhood to buy a house and move the family?

    Hence why I said to check for a more recent update on traffic. Yes, here in NM we also have traffic issues - mostly from deer and elk.

    Moving to the Frisco area - is Grayhawk a good neighborhood to buy a house and move the family?

    You will be fine there BUT, the bigger question is where are you working? Traffic can be severe near Walmart. Weekends are a complete nightmare. I usually avoid the area like there was Ebola in the air. Now, that being said it has been a while since I have been there so perhaps someone with...

    What's a crazier investment - Bitcoin or Amazon (AMZN)??

    To be fair Block chain is very secure and transparent. So I am good from a tech perspective. I've got $100 of Etherum and I've made 15% net of expenses in the past 2 days. I've seen so many bubbles in my life, I'm pretty good at being a good rat and getting off. I understand the argument for...

    Well, I bought my first cryptocurrency

    Since I am counter culture I avoided the Doc Marten Bitcoin and went with Ethereum. Transaction was pretty smooth. Loaded Coinbase on my phone to get started, validated my email and phone, registered a credit card and poof. Bought me some Etherum.
