Re: When Migraines Attack ...

I use Imitrex in the nasal spray form (plus a couple hours in a dark, quiet room). My mom and grandmom used strong coffee, aspirin, and Ben-Gay on the forehead with a cold cloth.

Hope today is a better day!

Re: 401k's a failure for many

Hope I didn't open recent wounds and my condolences on your loss. We're going to be going through that soon.

When I quit driving to work (70 miles round trip commute) my insurance dropped some, and it's not bad on the house. After ACA my [more]

Re: 401k's a failure for many

Not trying to rattle your cage any more, but do you have pets? If so, do you have a firm idea for what you'd pay for their health and well-being? I can (sort of) anticipate my needs, and my husband's, but man, I didn't foresee the vet bills I've had, [more]

Re: It came!

Your day sounds glorious :-) I got out some but then cussed & fussed via email with our apartment (they want to turn a small enclosed courtyard into a no-leash dog park, which is a bad idea on so, so many levels, not the least of which it would [more]

It came!

I got the Revlon "Rosewood" today. Extravagant, I guess, but it's the shade I remember and it's just different enough from ones I already have to make me feel like it was worth it :-)

Re: Duck Dynasty Star's Atheist Fantasy

That came up on my FB feed (thanks, fellow alumni of a small town HS). Something horrible is going to come out about that guy at some point. Like, more horrible that the stuff he already says. His mind is twisted and dark to a degree unusual even for [more]

Re: Need some advice...

Ruh-roh...I have a feeling DH's 401K won't fall under Bailey although his pension does. And annoyingly, the participation and hire dates on the Pru website are meaningless and were apparently randomly assigned when Pru took over from Fidelity (but [more]

Re: Blood Test Time Again

I got some blood drawn today, too :-) Fingers crossed we all get good news. And the doc found a little bit of weight loss I hadn't seen before, so I'll take that!

Re: Need some advice...

PSU,

I hadn't thought to check on that until this thread. I assumed that it would be like any other pre-tax retirement account. I don't remember the retirement folks in HR (well, the retirement lady) stressing that Bailey applied to the [more]

Re: Need some advice...

I checked--if we withdraw money from our NC 401Ks, we're exempt from state tax. If we roll the funds over to an IRA, we lose that exemption (we both come under the Bailey Settlement). I'd have to know we would get enough of a return to make up for [more]

Re: Need some advice...

Why would anyone buy stock through a full-service broker? I just can't fathom such a thing.

Oh, neither would I! Anything new is going through Vanguard (that seems to be the one most people are happy with). At the time (2004 or so), [more]

Re: Need some advice...

No....just do a direct IRA Rollover. Vanguard can set it all up for you.


Still checking but I think if I rolled the 401Ks over to something outside of the NC 401K retirement system, we'd have to pay state income tax on [more]

Unless you have kids......no way on life insurance...

That's how I'm leaning. I took a loan against the cash value of a policy I've had forever (universal life) and the repayments are "whittling down" the payoff to where [more]

With the EJ account, it's American Funds New Perspective Fund Class A and American Funds Washington Mutual Investors Fund Class A. I've been happy with their performance overall (although I tried not to look during most of 2008). I don't know the ROI [more]

Need some advice...

Reaching out here, although I feel dumb that I can't figure this out for myself:

DH and I have 2 401Ks and an investment fund with Edward Jones (I know, awful reputation but we invested in 2 mutual funds with them years ago and just never [more]

Re: electronics don't like me--but movies do!

I hate it when the electronics act up--I'm never sure if it's them or me! I tried to boost our wifi signal with extenders...but there's a gap in my brain where 100% understanding of the instructions should be. Guess it'll sit on a shelf until I [more]

It's something new-to-me and it's coming in the mail, so that's two points in its favor right there :-)

Re: Poll: Are you supporting adult children?

So, tonight I texted DS and DIL about if they would cook us a nice (24th) anniversary dinner next weekend if we gave them $$ to hit Whole Foods, etc. since steak and salmon is not really in their budget.

She just texted me back to say keep [more]
