    Re: Digging for Diamonds - Let's Play 2

    I use to be pretty proficient with computers. But the older I get, and the more advanced technology gets the less I seem to know!

    Re: Digging for Diamonds - Let's Play 2

    I was a computer tech in a lab at school for a while. I had to know more. But I've gotten away from it so much, and I don't know nearly what I use to.

    I am not as afraid of the computer as I use to be.

    Re: Digging for Diamonds - Let's Play 2

    I remember...many many years ago before I started working with them, I was visiting a school where my best friend was working... she was in a computer lab at the time, and she was taking it apart and messing with the insides. I freaked!!! I would of been scared to death take one apart! I could not imagine doing that.

    A couple of years later I was doing the same thing.

    Now that would be my younger son. He was always good at taking things apart,and then putting them back together. He's now an auto mechanic.

    Re: Digging for Diamonds - Let's Play 2

    The trick is having things WORK after you put them together!!!

    Mechanics can make good money. About the only think I can do to my car is put gas in it and drive it!

    He does make good money. He now has his own house. He lives there all alone, with his dog.

    If he has his own house sounds like he's doing really well for himself anyway!!

    Well he is 35 years old, and he's had that house for a few years already.

    Re: Digging for Diamonds - Let's Play 2

    Thats good though. Nowdays its hard to buy a house... its gotten so expensive!! At least in California anyway. So if he's had it for a while he's building up some good equity!

    He keeps refinancing. The house has gone up in value though.

    Re: Digging for Diamonds - Let's Play 2

    Gotta be careful refinancing.. sometimes its a good idea, but not always. But as long as the property is going up in value thats good. Right now out here real estate has flattened out. There is a brand new 4 bedroom right across from us. At first they were asking about $380,000 for it, the last price I saw was $299,000 and it finally sold. Don't know what they actually got for it however.

    Re: Digging for Diamonds - Let's Play 2

    I have had my house for 20 years and it has quadrupled in value. However, I owe more now than I ever did. ALways borrow on the equity, when we really have to. Life has gotten in the way. My house will probably never get paid for. However some day it will be Sean's.

    Re: Digging for Diamonds - Let's Play 2

    I'm very very VERY lucky. My house is paid for. We paid off the mortgage a few years ago. We were able to get in at the right time. We bought it in 83/84 I think it was and only paid $62,000 for it then.
