Re: OT: Unhappy retirees drive BMWs

BMW drivers have a reputation for being obnoxious drivers. Whether or not the percentage of obnoxious BMW drivers is greater than the average for any car isn't known.

Re: Poll: For Fun

I think about it-passenger trains on both coasts. I rode one from St Charles back to Sedalia, Mo at the end of a bike trip. I rode one from DC to Phil to connect for business travel and when I am in Bellingham Wa, I see a passenger train go through. [more]

Re: Where to invest next?

I will play devil's advocate.

You seem to have your finances well in hand. Your best return may be to spend a little more and create great memories for your family.

Re: OT:retail funk

The real question is why employers won't employee US graduates.

There is the issue that college/university STEM education doesn't provide the skills that employers want, but there is also the lack of career path from new graduate to

Re: Anyone succeeded in paying for college?

And one other thing-I began moving money to safe places when each began high school - one semester's money every six months. Tough to do when the market was going up but later it looked pretty smart.

Re: best way to find rental car in Phoenix

First, make a cancellable reservation with your favorite rental car company. For this for me, it would be National because you can pick your car. If it's two people, there are small cars that have rear seats that fold down and would do it for you. I [more]

Re: cash flow vs. interest rates

I don't like snowballing. There, I said it. I just don't like it. It bothers me to ignore potentially payoff-able debt to focus on just one debt at a time. I not only don't like it, I hate it.
And you know what AJ, I'm not doing it anymore.

Re: peculiar behavior on ebay

I paid $10 for 5 coupons. I purchase organic milk at 6.99 a pop at walmart, so I saved $25 from that.

I started poking around ebay looking for other discounts. I found a $100 home depot gift card for $88 which I used to purchase a

Re: thoughts on car loan?

Good to post here because you know there are people who can't do math and think all loans are bad ;)

Along with the interest being deductible, isn't there also some kind of depreciation for it, too ? (I don't deal with this for my business)

Re: OT? Funeral Home payment

Whatever. If anyone else had taken any responsibility, I would have gladly done nothing. The estate may not have been responsible but the will had the instructions.

One data point - IIRC in both instances, they wanted the money up front(when arranging things) but they would take a credit card.
