Re: Manhunt Underway for 'Portland Pooper'

Check out the expression on the guy's face when he realizes he's on the surveillance camera.

Okay, that was priceless. He spotted the camera, but didn't realize what it was for a few seconds... then it hit him... lol!

Re: help with investment club distribution

I don't want to "sell" the investment club shares because that will make it look like I have all this cash in the account, which isn't true. I just want to somehow convert them to the actual underlying securities.

Re: Umbrella Insurance

Interesting discussion on a timely topic for me. I've been procrastinating calling our insurance agent, but this thread has gotten me re-motivated!
