Gift for loss of Father - Jblac15
Searching for a gift to send a 26 year old guy that just lost his dad. He lives a few states away so has to be an online purchase. I've been looking at a few websites that sell Scotch/Bourbon gift sets, but was wondering if anyone here has any experience with a particular site. Or any other suggesti...

re: School me on Maurepas - Jblac15
Thanks. I commute down I55 a lot and always see trucks parked at the landing, but not sure how far these guys are running to find fish. How deep is the water down there between the Interstates?...

School me on Maurepas - Jblac15
Had a few hours to kill yesterday morning before the parade so I brought my Kayak down to Lake Maurepas for a little bit. I put in at one of the little outlets in Ruddock and fished the trees and back one canal. I only saw 1 or 2 fish jump the whole morning and came home empty handed. The are...

Security of Mint.com - Jblac15
I've been using Mint Bill's for years to pay any of my non-direct draft bills. Recently I got the full on Mint App and am wanting to link all of my accounts to it (Vanguard, Fidelity, banking, etc.) Should I be worried about the security of Mint? Thanks...

Should I continue with my Advisor? - Jblac15
Here's my current situation... Two years ago I left a company and had a small balance in a 401K that I didn't know what to do with. I'm a big Dave fan so I hopped on his website and found an Endorsed Local Provider for investing. Long story short... this money is now in an IRA with LPL but is m...

re: What is an average, safe % of monthly post tax income to spend on home. - Jblac15
I'm not sure if your figures include your wife's income or not, but when we bought our house we based everything on my income alone and it has worked out really well for us. Our mortgage is right at 20% of my take home pay. My wife has taken this last school year (teacher) off for some health-relat...

re: Toyota or Ford - Jblac15
Can't go wrong with either choice. With regular maintenance, either truck will last over 200k. I've been a die-hard Ford truck guy since years before I could even drive (legally). After owning nothing but Fords for the last 12 years, I broke down and bought a 2012 Tundra and couldn't be happier...

re: Lets talk about quality cheap tools - Jblac15
Love some Harbor Freight... If you're into woodworking, you should check out their Pocket Hole Jig. Just picked one up last week and it's a great tool for the price. Was looking at the Kreg jig for $120 at Lowes, but this one was $65 ($50.00 with my 25% coupon). It's all metal and very nicely ...
