PF, do you have the Costco Amex card? The perks look great. I usually write a check there, as they don't take Visa.

Yeah, that one steak with the truffle butter really caught my eye.

I just finished cutting, trimming, curing and wrapping a pork loin. Now I'm trying to find a good movie. I've watched about ten minutes on two so far; Officer Down which was pretty stupid and Gun Shy, which was even more stupid. Liam Neeson in a comedy just wasn't doing it for me. I didn't even stick around long enough to see Sandra Bullock. If I have to watch Miracle again and going to check myself.

It's either Amex or debit for cards. Cash is also welcome.

Thanks Andy. Didn't realize about debit card.

I think I will apply for the Costco Amex. No annual fee, and you get 1-5% cash back.

Right now I have just returned from work and am nursing a bit of a hangover. I was out last night at a Hogfest in my home town and stayed for the dance. Ran into a lot of old friends, so I had a couple of beers. Not many, just late ones. Then came straight home to bed and only got 5 hours sleep.

No, I just use my debit card. Went for V-8 and toilet paper, we also picked up rotisserie chicken and mashed potatoes. Then a little wandering ended up with Mango Nectar and Orange/Lemon San Pelligrino. No books caught our eye and we got back home early. I'm off to the grocery store for Popsicles, Pepsi and frozen broccoli or spinach.

I don't like to have too many CCs. Not good for your credit rating. When Costco first started pushing Amex, I thought there was a fee. I guess they changed it.

I agree. We're looking to swap out a hotel CC that has an annual fee that we've had forever but rarely use. We do like the Chase Freedom, which gives quarterly cash back rebates of 1-5%. We use the debit card for when we go out of the country, they rebate the ATM fees.

We have Capital One Venture cards. Two points for every dollar spent. We use them for EVERYTHING and accumulate points that pays for our airfare to Aruba and sometimes the car rental too. Even better, SO uses hers when she shops for the family she works for and really racks up the points. They spend a lot more than we do.

Finished sanding the old finish off the deck and hosed it off. Tomorrow morning it gets a coat of paint. Depending on the forecast for thunderstorms, coat two may be Monday or Tuesday.
