re: comfortable dress casual shoes for work - toddts
All OT and Money Board power brokers wear exclusively Allen Edmonds or Alden cordovan's (if they buy US made shoes). If not buying US made shoes (J&M lost out a decade ago) then you're going Church's or Italian. That is, if you are truly an OT baller, make min. $125 K / year (base salary of co...

re: College Footbal Preview in MS Paint... - toddts
I think TCU beats them by 17. UT better be "good"...outside of OU and TCU, they should have no excuse to not win 7/8 games with their eyes closed. But you always have the secret weapon/factor of M. Brown. I really hope they tank and finally go out and get the coach they need. ...

College Footbal Preview in MS Paint... - toddts
Courtesy from the boys at ShaggyBevo...God bless 'em for still having to put up with Mack Brown. I'd be drawing in MS paint as well by now since UT will be lucky to win 8 games. I hope you all get a good kick out of it...especially the JFF/sumlin portions. http://www.shaggybevo.com/board/sho...

re: Is there a better casual dress shoe then Johnston & Murphy - toddts
Yes...J&M is not at the level it was at 10+ years ago as they moved their production facilities from the US to overseas and now use much lower grade materials in 95% of their shoes (I would only consider their highest line shoe - Optima). Per prior posters, J&M have unfortunately (and sadly) gone t...

re: Suggested % to contribute to youy 401K? - toddts
My $.02 is that each and every person should put a min. of 8% in to not only get your company match (if you have one), but to also get used to not "missing" that money. I personally believe that everyone should max out their 401K...and do it as early as you can possibly afford to. If you are a...
