[quote]Ironic considering this entire thread pretty well has Cole, Jacquie, and Tessanne Top 3.
Tessanne who you have 4th, is already #4 on iTunes Top 10 and will be this weeks leading vote getter, just 3 hours after the show has ended. Jacquie is #9. No one else in Top 10.[/quote]

I don't know, Cole may have to really screw up to not be knocking on the top 3.

Let's put it this way, the week JL was asked to perform a softer song it was her worst performance of the season by far. I am not classifying her as a one trick pony, rather one that needs to expand and hone her craft. Like it not, believability is inherent in performance acceptance to many, and I...

Well, this is yet another reason I don't subscribe to the theory of using a Roth as a savings account. :lol:
If you have the intention of doing so I would not combine a contributory Roth IRA with a rollover [ETA: Roth] 401k, instead open separate accounts. Then you could use the magic form know...
