Re: Early retirementWithdrawals from where

I read a lot about approx 4% withdrawal from retiremen accounts. Whatever the % is that one would need where does that money come from? Wouldn't you get Penalized taking from your 401k before a certain age? What is 90% of your money is in a 401k? [more]

The Friday Milk Report

Two weeks ago I posted about the deal I found on milk at $1.00 per half gallon while also pointing out the obtuseness of fellow shoppers who were grabbing gallons at the regular price of $2.68.

Then last Friday, Jan 16th, I found a mark down [more]

Re: LIberals......never stop.....

A lot of my "calls to nature" happen out in the back yard. We are surrounded by woods. So much easier and I don't have to waste water flushing the commode. Aim isn't so important either.
