re: Question on taking out Roth IRA money to buy a house - LSUGUMBO
The extra $11K is going to save you $50/month. Consider what that $11K could be worth in 30 years if left in the Roth, then think about whether it's worth it to you or not. Financing $11k over 30 years only amounts to $17,905.65 over the full 30 years at 4% interest. Do you think that $11K would b...

re: Official Penny / MJ Stock Thread - LSUGUMBO
[quote]LNGLF just hit $3/sh. How high will it go before dropping back below $2?[/quote] I was wondering the same thing- I've got 500 shares at an average of about $1.60. When it was in the low 2's, I was buying- here at $3, I think I'm holding on for a dip. Oil/gas prices are stable (for now), s...

re: Wine Appreciation Thread - LSUGUMBO
I went to the Reidel tasting seminar before the Cork Wine Festival in Shreveporta few weekends ago. Before I walked in, I figured that what glass you drink which wines out of was just a marketing ploy to spend more money on glasses. After that 1 hour seminar, I have a whole new appreciation for wine...

re: CPSO suspends search for missing boater - LSUGUMBO
Also think about if you are wearing pants, shoes and a shirt- you've got a lot of clothes on and even if you can swim, you're disoriented and your clothes are weighing you down. I'm generally not on a boat fully clothed, but people that only fish and don't swim I could definitely see it. A sad story...

re: is this crazy? property question - LSUGUMBO

re: Planning finances early for having a baby - LSUGUMBO
Each insurance plan/provider is so vastly different, you better call the company/review your plan so you don't get stuck with an $5,000 bill that you're not prepared for. The people that had kids for under $1,500 are lucky as all get out and have good insurance. Our out of pocket max is $12,000, s...

re: Planning finances early for having a baby - LSUGUMBO
I would just start setting aside money for whatever you might need, instead of actually buying stuff. Make sure to call insurance company now in case there is a waiting period or something to add maternity coverage (there shouldn't be, but just in case). You'll register for a bunch of stuff and g...

re: So a Price Is Right model accidentally gave away a car - LSUGUMBO
Is there no 'cash value'? When we used to give away cars when I worked at the casino, there would be a cash option. If the car was worth $40k, the cash option would be $25k. Take out LA income tax from that and you're free to leave with the remainder (but we hope you put it back in the slot machine ...

re: Bees in my back yard! - LSUGUMBO
Put a bucket under them- they'll be dripping honey in no time! Seriously though- they won't be there for long, but if you have kids/pets that might end up getting stung, they should definitely be moved. My parents had a hive like that in their oak tree a few years ago, but they were about 25 f...
