Re: Hip Replacement

I guess it's a bit illogical to expect any orthopedic recommendations to have any traction in the advance of pain.

So what orthopedic recommendation should be made in advance of pain?

Re: Hip Replacement

You're comparing/confusing treatment with prevention. See, by the time someone shows up at an othopedist's office with *pain*, there's been significant underlying damage done that's probably been cumulative for years or decades.

If you arrive hours late to a BBQ and don't bring any food or drink like everyone else, it is not appropriate to complain that there isn't any food or drink left and that you will need to stop on the way home to [more]

Re: 1 mil for retirement is enough?

Since I'm still working part time, I've been putting the RMD money into my Roth IRA. This year I think I'll take the RMD right before property taxes are due and use some of it to pay those.

Re: 1 mil for retirement is enough?

The house is paid for. The cars are paid for and I will sell one soon. I get about $1300 a month in Social Security and about $700 a month from two small pensions from prior employers. Even without my part time job, the $350K or so I have in [more]

Re: Rant: credit card fraud AGAIN!!!

Don't these prepaid cards charge fees for every transaction and possibly also monthly fees?

Some may, but I haven't paid a fee yet. Yes, there are some things that would generate a fee, but they aren't things I do. Actually that's [more]

Re: more pics and a name

We discovered that Mr. Tux was actually Miss Tux. Which led to her being called Miss Take, which then transitioned into Fluff. She's about 15 pounds now.

Re: Kibbitz on new stove

I would not willingly go back to coils and I don't find the glass hard to clean at all. In fact, since it is obvious when it needs to be cleaned, it gets cleaned every time it needs it. A scrape with the razor and a bit of Barkeeper Friend on a damp [more]

Re: My Fool menu

To bring this back to the point, if there are three links on the screen that say My Fool, it seems like all three should lead to the same place. Instead, two of the three go one place and the third goes someplace else.

Re: Signing 1040 as POA

If I prepared the tax return, I would have you sign it as Mothers Name by Your Name, POA, and keep a copy of the POA for our file in case the IRS came calling later.

Re: Poll: Tax Preparation

I voted me, because I do my own taxes, but I also work for a chain tax prep service. It isn't a franchise, so I can't vote for that. If EA was also an option, that would also apply.

If you've been on my email distribution list for the last 6 month, and I send out an email that says DH has taken a turn for the worse and has transitioned to comfort care, a response that asks "what happened" probably isn't appropriate. [more]
