Re: CNBC: Next 25 years

Re: traditional IRA early withdrawl

After age 59-1/2 you will be able to take distributions from your IRA penalty free. Until then fed, state, and the 10% penalty may well take over 40% of the funds removed. So its best to wait if you possibly can.

Re: 10 3D Printed Houses a Day

Re: Bathtub Drain major problem

Others know better than I do, but a few thoughts--

1. If you get it close enough, plumbers putty is your friend for final sealing around the tub junction.

Re: Unblooming Azaleas

You probably know better than I do, but when my azelias weren't blooming, I found out I was trimming them at the wrong time. Trim right after they bloom. Otherwise, you trim off next years blooms.

Re: Abengoa: Cellulosic ethanol plant Hugoton,

Of course if they get serious about global warming and come up with a carbon tax or something similar, biomass and many renewable could become an important alternative.

Re: Crazy Market

People keep saying inventory is low. Hence, it is a sellers market some places.

Re: bird and pigeon droppings

Lets be clear that we mean hand dish detergent vs autodish detergent. Hand dish detergent is usually quite mild and should be ok. Auto dish detergent is strongly alkaline. Not a good idea.

Re: Vehicle Back-up Camras

Now that we have inexpensive digital cameras in cellphones, putting one in the back of a vehicle should not be a big deal. From there it is just electronics. Maybe some software.

Re: I'm getting started
