Re: Musing on hotels

A little off topic, but I can't resist. We once stayed in a Disney Hotel in Orlando. They had a "resort fee" of $15.00. In their brochure, they listed what was covered in the "resort fee." One of the things was "free self [more]

We are almost retired and have bought 2 rent houses and may hear back on our offer to buy a 3rd one in a day or so. We plan to own perhaps 3 to 5 rental houses and have the rents help support our income in our retirement. I was wondering what info or [more]

Subcontractor wants change to 1099 for 2012

I am not sure if this is the board for this, but here goes. We had a subcontractor working for us in 2012. All of his work was done in Florida, where we are located. He left and moved to California before the end of the year 2012. So, in early 2013, [more]

Re: Birthdates & internet security

Oh no, I didn't mean that the family members were "criminals" or anything. I was worried that when I e-mailed the list around to family members, that it might be intercepted in an e-mail on the internet somehow. I was definitely not [more]

Re: The downside of travel

We both get colds every time we fly. We take extra vitamin C before and during our travel, and it doesn't seem to effect anything. We get enough rest and try to eat healthy, and we still get colds. These days we travel mostly for maybe 7 to 10 days. [more]

Re: Vinyl Plank Flooring

We are considering this for a rent house. We have been looking at the brand Costco carries. I think it is called "harmonics" - it might be their own brand. It is really pretty and high quality looking. You might check it out in a Costco if [more]

We had been crazy busy in our business and our CPA just caught it that we missed taking the required distribution from a small traditional IRA we had when spouse turned 70 1/2. Spouse is now 72. So, we closed the IRA and withdrew all of it, which I [more]

Re: Any thoughts on Kauai?

Thanks for all the links and ideas of what to do. As usual, I now wish we could stay 6 months! I forgot to say we love to snorkel, so any info on great snorkeling spots would be appreciated. I guess the Kauai Revealed book will have it all. I ordered [more]

Re: Masonite Siding

We had some Masonite siding years ago. We replaced it with Hardie board maybe 10 years ago. We have done absolutely nothing to the Hardie Board and it looks exactly like the day it was installed. I highly recommend it. It is high quality and [more]

Re: Any thoughts on Kauai?

Thanks for everyone's suggestions. You are definitely right about that "Kauai Revealed" guidebook. We bought the same guidebook when we went to Maui, and it is by far the best guidebook around. Everyone called it the "Blue Book." [more]

What color wood floors do you like?

We are remodeling a house and it is in Florida. It will become a rent house and our renters are usually 28 to 36 years of age. (So, I want to appeal to this age group). We are probably going to put in floating laminate floors - wood looking - but [more]
