Re: Question about Roth IRA contribution for 2013

Assuming that the Roth is a self-directed account (at a brokerage somewhere), then you can go ahead and deposit the money but you don't have to "invest" it in anything yet. That is, you don't have to buy any stocks with the money that you [more]

Re: Moving to a new computer

38Packard - Are you using the free version of Legacy or the paid one?

Re: Saturated fat is not bad

Have you by any chance read "Grain Brain"? The author makes this same point rather strongly. Although he does point out that we need to eat the *right* kinds of fat.

Re: Quicken 2011 on Windows 7 ?

The Windows 7 that you have Quicken running on - is it 64 bit or 32 bit?

Re: email account hacked

is the only solution to close the account?

Try changing the password - see if the emails stop.

Re: Tax forms?

Are you sure that you had "taxable events" in 2013?

Notice this statement on the web page:

"Please note that the Year drop-down menu only displays the year(s) in which taxable events occurred."
