| Money Talk|| Retirement - how long until you hang it up? - nelatf on 6/27/14 at 9:14 am|
Approximately 262 more months for me.
That is at my current monthly savings level and estimating a 7% return...anything more than that is gravy....and I hope I can cut into those 262 months as I move up in the work world.
Having a plan is the most important part....the short term temptations...

It looks like a great time for golfers and food enthusiasts.

The guy just shot a great buck but the shot was unethical and was way too far back.

How can you eat crawfish at Cormier's? I tried this place again. Someone needs to tell these guys they are doing it wrong.
I had two pounds of seasoning poured on my five pounds for crawfish. It has to be a scam to sell beer.
