Re: Photos

The only think I use either iPhotos or Photos for is finding my iPhone pics from the iCloud so I can do a very limited edit before sharing. I found that Photos will not let me share with my FB account, so I use iPhoto for that.

Re: Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC).

I just visited Laurel Lake in Hudson OH. Very highly rated CCRC. I was quite surprised that most all the people attending the "talk" were couples! And fairly young.

I am single. I would have to pay an entrance fee over $300,000 for [more]

Re: Already Retired

I consider my Pension and SS as kind of annuities....w/o fees. I have not looked into Fidelity annuities lately, but if I remember right when I did I did not like them.

Re: Already Retired

CB~ Most advice that I can glean does not take into account our fixed income and says to reduce equity exposure and increase fixed income funds or bonds. As soon as I expose my equity heavy portfolio to a portfolio advisor I am told that I should [more]

Re: Is Michael Dell writing for the WSJ ...

I realize this is heresy, but if you’ll indulge me, I think you’ll find it a useful exercise in thinking about both what makes Apple such an exceptional company and how hubris is the ultimate downfall of all empires....

Re: moneybank

Under Safari you can choose to Clear History and Website Data. That ought to cure it.

Re: Black Screen

I had these problems on my MacPro (Lion). I did lug it to the Genius Bar. They had it for a few days and could not replicate the problem. I took it home and it never had problems again.

Re: Photos & iCloud again

I don't see the point of keeping photos in iCloud other than recents to share between devices. I am not fond of Photo and will keep using iPhoto to upload my iOS pics.

Re: "PHOTOS" :(

Don't like iPhoto or Photo...use them (it) only for iPhone pics that show up on my computer. I like to tweak them sometimes. Don't use Cloud...no room on my iPhone for that.

I am now using LR6 (Cloud) and I am starting to love it! It is much [more]

Re: Retired with IRA

We all takes a chance unless we put our money under the mattress. I keep a certain amount of IRA money in cash to pay out RMD. I tell my advisor how much RMD funds will be removed for the year and we make sure I have more than enough cash. I am 79 [more]
