re: Vanguard Star Fund - VGSTX - Sigma
For 60/40 type funds, VBIAX and VWELX are historically better funds. I can't think of a good reason to use STAR over either. ETA: If you chose STAR because of the 1k minimum, then I would move once you passed 3k. ...

re: Architect - residential - Sigma
We paid $2.00 per sq ft for our architect for custom plans, who will be working through completion of construction. We met weekly over the course of about 3 months to get the final set of plans. We've asked him to come by the site to take a look at a few things so far. I think the money was well...

Bama, Michigan, Georgia, LSU, and Ohio State are eating up the blue chip recruits like they have unlimited payrolls.
