| Money Talk|| Pondering Sale vs. Rental - Rev1897 on 8/19/13 at 1:11 pm|
I know we get a lot of these threads, but my situation is a bit different.
We are moving from House 1 into House 2, which is an older home on a beautiful lot where we plan to build a new house in the next three years.
House 1 is on the market in a desirable area (River Ridge) but based on the...

Somebody got a hold of my SSN and signed me up for 5 iPhones... One of the receipts came to my father's address and he opened it.
I called the numbers. They are all off. I guess this guy is planning to ship the IPhones over to China or something. Interestingly, there was no request or inquiry fr...

| Money Talk|| Asbestos Tile Roof - Rev1897 on 1/27/13 at 1:14 pm|
Wife and I have found a house that we like, not crazy about it, but mainly because the exterior needs some work.
It's about 3000 sq feet and on a great street, though, so I want to give it a longer look. The price is great, and I think I've figured out why: it has an asbestos tile roof.
| Pelicans Talk|| A Danny Granger deal might make a lot of sense for this team. - Rev1897 on 1/20/13 at 12:02 pm|
According to Chad Ford, he's on the block and the Pacers want a young big man and/or a point guard in return.
We don't really have any salaries that match, other than EG (which works straight up) or Ryno/Aminu/Passquez (which I would rather not do).
So... while he may not be worth our lottery ...
| Pelicans Talk|| Houston waived Scott Machado - Rev1897 on 1/8/13 at 8:48 am|
I know a few on this board were hot for him as an UDFA.... If we hadn't just signed sloan I'd like to see Dell go after him.
Also looks like the Lakers cut Darius Johnson-Odom, both are developmental projects but hey, so is the team. We can always use more guards....
| Pelicans Talk|| Why not pick up Josh Childress? - Rev1897 on 12/30/12 at 2:12 pm|
He was released by the Nets... Surely he can contribute at SF.
| Money Talk|| Bonus at the end of year - Rev1897 on 11/30/12 at 5:14 pm|
Anyone roll their bonus into a 401k so as to avoid paying taxes on it now?
Looking at a hefty one and I'm thinking about the best ways to invest and plan with the money. I'm pretty young and my debt is all at good interest rates...
What would you do with a five-figure bonus?...
| Money Talk|| JPMorgan Select Card - Rev1897 on 10/28/12 at 8:51 am|
Anybody have this one? Thinking about getting it. Looks like the benefits aren't as good as the Sapphire Preferred though.
I'd love the Palladium too, but the fee, ugh. :drool:...
| Money Talk|| Shocked at how much 2001 4Runner is valued - Rev1897 on 10/9/12 at 6:59 pm|
I have a 2001 4Runner Limited with 100,000 miles on it.
I'm about to buy a new car (actually I'm buying an old car from my uncle, just a nicer old car).
KBB says the "Good" value is $9,357 ... I know the 4Runners are kind of cult vehicles because they are known to drive 200k+ ... but wow.
| O-T Lounge|| Wind Creek Casino in Alabama (on the way to Auburn) - Rev1897 on 9/21/12 at 6:43 pm|
We stopped to play some cards on our way to Auburn.
This casino had no tables. All slots. Does not compute.
A casino without tables is a glorified truck stop. Friends, don't stop here....
| LSU Ticket Exchange|| Hotel Room @ Auburn-LSU Game - Rev1897 on 9/12/12 at 11:11 am|
I have a hotel room at the Econo Lodge Auburn. It's $225 a night and I can't go. They won't let me cancel.
This was the best deal I could find in Auburn for a two-bed, non smoking hotel room. I'll transfer to you, just let me know....

Not a particularly difficult install tho....

| Pelicans Talk|| John Deshazier: Start Jason Smith at C - Rev1897 on 7/7/12 at 3:11 pm|
Completely ignores Kaman. And that Ayon plays Center. But overall, not a bad thought, just a few months late to the "J Smitty should bulk up and play the 5" Party....
| Pelicans Talk|| Alario Center for Workouts - Rev1897 on 6/20/12 at 9:03 am|
Does it concern anyone else that we practice in such a crap facility?
When we take these players out to the Alario Center, do we helicopter them in? That has got to be one of the worst drives in America (it's on the way to the dump, streets trashed, etc).
With AD23 I guess it doesn't matter, ...
| Pelicans Talk|| Chad Ford now has us taking Rivers -- Mock Draft 8.0 - Rev1897 on 6/19/12 at 11:44 am|
From the article:
Analysis: We've had Jared Sullinger here the past few weeks. But just as he was working out in New Orleans, NBA team doctors were reviewing the physicals from the NBA draft combine. As we reported on Monday, Sullinger's physical had a number of team docs skittish.
| Pelicans Talk|| Kaman "would welcome the chance to return to NO" - Rev1897 on 6/7/12 at 3:53 pm|
and play alongside Anthony Davis, according to ESPN Insider...
But for how much? If he's willing to take a reasonable salary, somewhere at $7m I would think...
Apparently the Heat and the Trail Blazers are also interested in Kaman....
| Pelicans Talk|| Bledsoe from Clippers? - Rev1897 on 5/31/12 at 4:00 pm|
Would you trade the No. 10 pick for Eric Bledsoe? ESPN insider is reporting that the Clips want to pick a small forward in the second half of the lottery.
Maybe Bledsoe + our two second rounders back for the No. 10 pick?...

Tonight is the night. We are away. Houston is halfway decent. We must engage the tank.
Start Aminu at the 4 and Smitty at SG.

I've got 25k that I'd rather not keep in cash -- but want easily accessible in case we buy another home in 2013...
Anyone have a bond fund they recommend? Or other suggestions other than CDs?...

Heading out there with the wife in April. We are going to fly in and out of SFO and do Napa for a day or two. Would love recommendations on the following:

We've only got about 4 days. Thanks for the help, everyone....

Not Chase, but JPMorgan Securities? I've been considering moving to a brokerage house and keeping my e-trade for my personal trading....

Yall might remember I've been trying to sell my 2008 535i. It's a great car but I've injured my back and need something higher off the ground.
Anybody ever sold a car to carmax? Do they give you a decent price or what?...
