Re: 1 mil for retirement is enough?

I highly encourage my 20/30-something nieces and nephews to LBTheirM, and save every penny in tax deferred investment accounts. Doing so now, will ensure a happy, easy retirement at a relatively young age.

Re: 1 mil for retirement is enough?

Pffftfttfttftt. It's way too low. A mill won't begin to purchase one of the yachts I expect to buy in retirement, let alone all the costs to run it back and forth to Monaco.

Re: OT ~ Something to ponder

Cars need to either be parked or driving, but if driverless cars are a car service then it could be in use by other drivers until you call one to take you home. This would be useful in high density areas where parking is already expensive. [more]

Re: Sanity check: what does it cost to replace b

It don’t sound very good to me. $170 labor cost for a job that takes maybe 10 minutes, 15 minutes at most?

There are three of them. And it takes 15 minutes just to R&R the lower splash shield to gain decent access.

Re: Low VOC caulking?

In addition, you can make a game of it. For example, imagine you are squeegeeing windshields during red lights on a busy road in downtown Mexico City and you have to finish before the light turns green. That will make the shower job seem a little [more]
