Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

This makes me want to avoid Marriott entirely. I have never left a tip for the maid service. So far as I am concerned, that is part of the room price.

Re: Broke on $400K a year

Absurd expenses. And if they paid $1.2 million for that house, they got taken. Also, nobody needs to pay that much for vacations.

Fundamentally silly stuff.

Re: Dressing up -- shoes

I dated a girl once and only once who carried 2 pair of shoes. One pair was high heels, but she only wore them for show for a little while. The other pair was for walking. Pretty stupid.

Re: mutal funds for my grandson

The market fluctuates. There are no funds that are always a buy, and the same may be said of stocks.

Re: See no evil... valuation doesn't matter, rig

I don't think it is terribly useful so say that there will be a decline sometime in the next five years. That is rather loose timing. Certainly you need some better knowledge on which to trade.

Re: Where to put cash portion?

I see no reason to have any cash at all in the account, unless you see no opportunities in the stock market. Certainly there are times when you should just be out of the market. And of course, you need to go to cash when you need to make a [more]

Re: Completely OT: trashcan on desk

So what on earth is on the bottom of your trash can that causes you such concern? Is there toxic waste on the floor?

Re: Interesting Question

Today, everybody I know holds the stock at their brokerage in their account. However, in the past many people took delivery of the stock at their residence or office. That took some time. I think that the 3 day delay was involved in that somehow.

Re: market timers taken notice

Really a terrible article. No mention of the methodology used, just examples of people who made mistakes. Big deal.

The fact is that if you know when to buy or sell a stock you know how to time the market. And if you do not know when to buy [more]

Pay Pal

Every day I get a message telling me to update my Pay Pal account. Of course, I do not have a Pay Pal account, so the messages are frauds. Probably looking for information for some kind of scam.

Re: Poll: Size of porfolio sans inheirtance

Re: Lunch help needed

Chicken Walnut Salad

Just to make it easy, get a cooked chicken (rotisserie) and cut the chicken off in bite-sized pieces. Add walnuts. Then whatever else you want, such as celery and onions.

This should be good for a few days. If [more]
