| Outdoor Board|| Bow Hunt Update - nelatf on 1/12/15 at 11:09 am|
I went, saw but did not kill but gosh dang my blood was pumping like never before when that first deer was close!!
Thanks for the counsel and advice last week - I had a ton of fun bow hunting. When the first deer walked though, my heart was jumping out of my chest.
I was shaking so damn bad...
| Outdoor Board|| Who is hunting in the cold tomorrow? - nelatf on 1/7/15 at 6:10 pm|
Suppose to be 16 degrees in NELA - I may go out for a little while - we are flush with ducks.
Breaking the ice will be a pain in the ass.
| Outdoor Board|| Bow Hunt Invite - nelatf on 1/2/15 at 9:47 am|
I don't know shite about bow hunting. I can lay down deer with my .270 or my son's 7mm08 (unlike DwayneO) but never bow hunted.
Invited to a bad arse camp to bow hunt - and they have some good looking cam pics and some awsome kills - but I don't want to 1. Risk injury to myself because I don't kno...
| Tech Board|| IPhone Text Messages - ATT - nelatf on 1/2/15 at 9:23 am|
On some of my text messages it says sending at the top - all the time - although the text has gone through.
It does this when the text message colors are green - no problems when it is blue.
Thanks for helping an old man out wih this.

Hay ride this Friday night - 25 to 30 people. Now the women are wanting a heater for them and kids since temps are suppose to drop. I am stuck with this project and bourbon and sex jokes did not go over well.
I have my big propane heater for the duck blind but the other husbands said that is to...
| Money Talk|| Roth IRA Question - nelatf on 10/29/14 at 11:52 am|
If wife and I make $175,000 base salary, combined, may we still contribute to our roths? Here is the kicker, I may get a bonus between 10k and 17.5k a year. Some years it may be a little more....some years it could be much, much less.
Does incentive compensation need to be included in the total...

What a nice place to get a quick lunch - friendly service, decent food and all at a very reasonable price.
I had my arse kicked at work this morning so I decide to cruise around north side and enjoy the beautiful day - finally got hungry and stopped at the Daily Press.
You order at a kiosk term...
| Food and Drink Board|| Freezing Steaks - nelatf on 9/15/14 at 2:11 pm|
Had a killer deal on bone in ribeyes this week at the local grocery store. Purchased some and now need to freeze 4 of them.
What is the best way to freeze these bad boys? No access to a food saver machine.

Things like Tiger's actions today are why we need a golf board. I get in and try to catch up on pro golf from this afternoon.....the MSB has multiple discussions going on about TW's WD and it is too hard to keep up with.
And because of TW's WD, it is making it hard for me to see what my golf thr...
| Money Talk|| I am out of the market (mostly) - nelatf on 7/30/14 at 2:20 pm|
....not all of it - but a large portion.
Will wait for a dip - and closely watch a couple of select stocks for a better buy in range.
I made this move without any quantitative metrics to support it....and I usually don't do that.
| 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...
