Re: An Apology

I believe TMF made a wise choice putting the political boards on the back page.
It's where they belong. TMF is not in the business of politics.

Re: Computer died.....

A new battery can get your old one new life.

I would assume his computer guru checked that. If not, he needs a new guru.

I had a computer almost as old that died last year. It was the hard drive, not the battery. It's [more]

How about a long date target retirement fund with Vanguard? She will own more that just stocks, but the fixed income allocation is quite small.

So now I'll stand behind them at the tablet instead of at the counter. That will be so much better!

Small IRA account

I'll do the research but I thought I would also ask here. My daughter will be leaving her job soon where she has a small amount in her 401k (a little over $1k). She's looking into rolling it over into an IRA. She'll either invest that [more]

Re: Has anyone shot lately?

I hit the outdoor one as much as possible.

There are few public outdoor ranges around here - none with a good drive. I'd join a private range but right now I just don't shoot enough to warrant the cost.

I fail to see how "a tablet" is going to simplify or accelerate things.

What do you end up doing with a dead 800 pound wild hog? Is it edible like deer or do you call animal control to dispose of it?
