re: What to get Dad for Christmas - 79ABTEXTIGER on 12/7/15 at 11:23 am
As a dad in his 50's, I can tell you that the best gift my kids can give me is some of their time. I don't want or need much.

re: 529 plan, does money get paid straight to the university or do you withdraw? - 79ABTEXTIGER on 5/7/15 at 5:02 pm
I paid the bills as they became due and then was able to withdraw the funds online and they were disbursed directly to me. I kept a folder with copies of tuition bills, room and board expenses, books,etc. in case I was ever audited. It was really much easier than I expected....

re: Anybody on here ever had testicular cancer? - 79ABTEXTIGER on 1/26/15 at 8:13 pm
Have your questions been answered? I was diagnosed at the age of 44 which was on the backside of the bell curve. Early detection and treatment is key as with any cancer. If you have other questions or concerns I will be glad to address them. It is much more common than people realize. It's not a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
