[quote]Doctor...my optometrist called me today to warn me about the upcoming dangers that the eclipse will bring. He explained that an eclipse is more dangerous than a normal sunny day because normally when it's sunny the brightness of rays deter you from staring at the sun. During an eclipse your r...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: So What's Everyone Doing for the Eclipse? - Volvagia on 8/18/17 at 5:41 am
[quote]I'll be taking off a couple of hours early to watch it with my wife and son. We're going to be at 98%, good enough for me. We're in our mid 30's so it'll likely be the best chance that we get of seeing one without traveling.

re: Where can I get a HELOC if I have two mortgages on my house? - Volvagia on 8/16/17 at 8:19 pm
And paying off the 15 year isn't an option in the time frame you are talking about I suppose. If not, you have two opinions I would recommend: Saving account emergency fund. Throw everything into a market ETF with robin hood, and either sell or loan against margin to cover emergency exp...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
