re: Let's talk about motor insurance coverage - LSUtigerME
Your rates are fairly average for SF, which I found to be high for our area. I just shopped around a couple months ago and saved some money. If you have a Homeowners policy, the discount for combining them is decent. Ultimately, I switched to GEICO. I saved around $2000/year. However, I just p...

re: I spent two months interviewing to become a financial adviser... - LSUtigerME
No offense, but what makes you think a Masters in History is worth 75k/yr? I understand you may be an intelligent person, particularly social studies/sciences, but that doesn't always translate directly to salary. You make 43k/yr, have decent to good benefits, a pension plan, etc. You work from ...

re: Mounting TV above the fireplace - LSUtigerME
Historically, the fireplace was the focal point of the living room. Mounting the TV above the mantle, allows the room design/layout to maintain the fireplace as the focal point, but with the modern advantage of also having the TV the focal point. Split and open floor plans somewhat necessitate ha...

re: Any OBers know how to do a circuit design plan - LSUtigerME
Have you worked with electrical before? Do you know/understand the principles involved? Safety is paramount in working with electrical, so if you're uncomfortable or unfamiliar, get an electrician involved.

re: Landlord Question - Can I tell my tenants to turn up the thermostat? (Update Page 2) - LSUtigerME
You want them to turn it up to 80 and say "see it works fine"? Unless the unit is frozen from running excessively, a properly size unit should be able to maintain a temp lower than 80....

re: Buying a DSLD Home, should I get my own realtor? - LSUtigerME
As long as you understand you are getting what you pay for. Don't overpay for a DSLD quality home. Are the lenders just rolling the closing costs into the mortgage? Need to review the $5k "discount" vs your $1k lender and determine where that cost is going....

re: Employee Goals/Quotas not being met-Terminate? - LSUtigerME
Like GYMBB mentioned, it's much more important to identify behavior based problems instead of results based. You mention the employee is not using time efficiently. This is a behavior. A results deficiency could be an effect of poor training or skill in a particular area, reflecting a managing and c...

I'm about to start building myself. Self contracting. Biggest problem is just locating and controlling subs. I'm estimating around $115/sqft to build, not including land or site prep, but including driveway and landscaping. Site prep, driveways, and landscaping can be very expensive. This is a...

PS Vue and CBS/Big Brother - LSUtigerME
Any Big Brother fans who use PS Vue? I know BB puts the episodes online. I can watch them online or from the CBS App on my iPad. No login required. On PSVue, I have it saved to "My Shows", and it shows the episodes as "Coming Up". However, it doesn't record them. It also does not show the late...

re: Backdoor Roth IRA - is this possible? - LSUtigerME
Lots of misconceptions in here it seems. The "backdoor" part refers to the ability to contribute to a Roth IRA when you are otherwise ineligible. This is because there's a loophole that allows you to convert the traditional IRA contributions to a Roth. However, you must still pay taxes on ...

re: Realtor Payment -- Why is it a percentage of the home? - LSUtigerME
Does it perhaps have anything to do with the notion that the seller pays all the fees? This encourages a buyer to enlist their help and not worry about the realtor fees. I've also seen realtors state they are not allowed to discuss fees between realtors. This is their way of avoiding anti-trus...
