re: What do you do when a woman has a messy room? - PlanoPrivateer on 1/6/17 at 9:06 pm
We had this problem with my daughter sometime during her high school years. She wouldn't even bring her dirty clothes down stairs. One day when I walked by and saw a 3 foot high pile of dirty clothes, I said enough. I took the door off its hinges. It worked. Teenage girls want a door on their ro...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Belk Bowl---Arkansas vs Virginia Tech - PlanoPrivateer on 12/29/16 at 6:22 pm
It wasn't a fumble. It was a muff. Loose ball when the inadvertent whistle was blown. Team last in possession (Arkansas)has the choice. If the announcer is correct when he says the rule was changed this year then I am incorrect in the above. But it was a muff not a fumble. Edit to add they th...

re: Vanguard three fund question - PlanoPrivateer on 12/28/16 at 6:19 pm
I wouldn't split the Target Date Fund 2055 into the other 3 until you have enough to put at least $10,000 in each of the three. Each of the 3 has a $10,000 minimum for Admiral Shares which gets you a lower expense ratio. Or, move the $11,000 to the VTSMX which has an expense ratio for Admiral Share...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Anybody got a good Oyster Patty recipe - PlanoPrivateer on 12/22/16 at 10:00 pm
My married daughter made her first batch of Oyster Patties based on her love of my wife's who learned from her mother. Her first attempt for Thanksgiving this year turned out very well. Living in north Texas my wife uses Pepperidge Farms Puffy Pastries. My kids would rather eat the oyster patties...

re: Question about Jerry Jones Grandson? - PlanoPrivateer on 12/17/16 at 8:18 pm
I've seen him play twice this year once at home and once on the road. He is a little on the small side. But he is tough, smart, throws a decent pass, good pocket presence and appears to be a leader. The only negative as a quarterback that I've observed is his size. I'd also be questioning his up...

re: Paying your credit card each month - PlanoPrivateer on 12/10/16 at 7:35 pm
I can think of only two reason to pay all or part of your credit card balance early. One, you will be traveling for an extended period of time and don't want to worry about the due date. Of course, with electronic banking you can fairly easily pay from anywhere. Two, you plan on making a large pu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
