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.

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...

Stock and Mutual Fund?
For me it is 310 shares of XOM.
Fidelity Spartan Total Market Fund
I plow my twice a month 401k contributions into the fund. It has worked out well so far.

What would the money board do with $100,000 lump sum investment. Money would not be touched for 20 years.
No debt to pay off in the picture.

The broadcast yesterday looked more like a food festival than a golf tournament.
I am making plans to go next year for both the golf and food....and drinks....and beautiful women with sunscreen on and not much else.
It looks like a great time for golfers and food enthusiasts.
| Food and Drink Board|| Nonna - Cotton - Mecca - nelatf on 4/19/14 at 10:34 am|
Still have not made it in to Nonna...but was at a Good Friday / Easter party catered by Nonna and Cotton.
All I can say is wow....can not wait to get into Nonna for the real deal. The catering staff was first class, the food was fresh, hot and delicious.
The food I sampled is as follows:

It was a very pleasan...

I have my emergency fund fully funded - but it is sitting in a savings account earning nothing.
I am tempted to pull it over to my fidelity account and try to do a little better than savings account return.
