re: House plans - baldona
How narrow are you talking? Two car I'm assuming? My honest opinion is that if you don't love the lot there's no way I'd put the effort into a custom build. Too much work for something you don't love....

[quote]We had a running back like that in high school, built like a bodybuilder. Went in gym and out the back door at first chance. I killed myself 3 hours a day. [/quote] That's where a lot of people mess up. There is a such thing as over working yourself and I did the same. The way to get brute...

re: Inheritance forthcoming for a person with nothing - baldona
Honestly, the absolute best bet would be to tell him to take some of it and blow it. He's likely to do that anyway, say $30k. Buy a truck, go on a cruise, go to biloxi for a long weekend. Then talk him into giving the rest to a financial advisor with monthly draws. And to never touch the principl...

re: Woman Killed By Dogs- Has to be one of the worst ways to die - baldona
[quote]A lab trained for fighting will wreck your ducking world.... I have seen labs raised as pin dogs for hogs and they do a great job[/quote] I mean sure, but there's a reason why almost everyone uses pit's for that. I really don't care what Pit's history was 100 years ago, as that's li...

re: Zip lock bags for deboned deer meat - baldona
I misread, I personally wouldn't bag it, freeze it, and then process later and re freeze it. Re frozen meat regularly gets mushy on me and you risk freezer burn from re freezing it. Do you have a dehydrator to make jerky? I'll freeze a bunch to make jerky at a later date, nothing wrong there. But...

[quote] how we properly take it as far and income/taxes are concerned[/quote] The only taxes owed on that sum will be what your FIL owed taxes on himself, the money transferring to you should be tax free. There is a $5.5 mil exclusion, so anything under $5.5 mil per person (a couple is $11 mil) i...

re: Zip lock bags for deboned deer meat - baldona
Father in law shot a deer on a Tuesday evening hunt this past Thanksgiving in Tennessee, we dressed it and hung it overnight. I deboned it and put it on ice Wednesday late morning after we hunted, and then kept it in my cooler on ice until the next Monday evening when I returned home to Florida when...

[quote]However, if you raise your labs for dogfighting, like these dogs were, they will frick your world up too.[/quote] Yeah I call BS. Sure maybe a lab would become a lot meaner, maybe some other dogs would too. But dogs have instincts, have you ever tried to get a non retriever to retrieve? Or...

re: Crispy chicken skin with smoker - baldona
Crispy chicken skin comes from cooking dry skin at high temps quickly, so as not to burn. Not sure you need to brine chicken parts, but as said that will keep the skin too wet. Pat them very dry and stick them in the fridge for an hour or so and they'll get really dry. Then I'd personally smoke f...

[quote]Where would he park the 250K to generate $2,000 a month? That's $24,000 a year, so almost a 10% annual return. [/quote] Well that was just an example and probably not a great one.

re: Lesson learned, hunting edition - baldona
I've been kayak fishing and forgot the paddles. Release bow hunting is a very regular thing to forget, I've only done it once. After that I put old one in the bottom of my pack. Flashlight always sucks to forget, gotta set up or get down in the dark. I forget one all the damn time on night hun...

re: Airbnb in London - baldona
As of Jan 1 2017 I believe they have a maximum short term rental of 60 nights I believe, it may be 90 but same difference. The city is trying to cut back on them in residential areas, I stayed in a Vrbo first story flat with my wife and 2 daughters under 4 this past June in Bayswater. We paid right ...

re: Suggest a Starter Book for an 11 year old girl - baldona
I'd get her into investing. I knew a family that invested their vacation money for the year with their kids, or something like that. They put $5k in at Christmas time, and had the kids invest it how they wanted. However much they had come vacation time is what they spent. Obviously there's some i...

re: Inheritance forthcoming for a person with nothing - baldona
He could literally buy a vehicle and a trailer cash for $50k total. Invest the remaining $250k, and have $2k a month to spend for life. He could live off of that fairly easily. Honestly, I'd tell him that if he invests X amount he can then get Y amount a month to spend for life and it will never ...

re: UPS Loses Family’s $846K Inheritance, Offers to Refund $32 Shipping Fee - baldona
For a $1000 check or something that's one thing to wait to see if someone cashed it, but you don't just deposit a $846k check without doing some fairly serious verification. I really don't see how worrying about it being "double cashed" is even a remote possibility....

re: UPS Loses Family’s $846K Inheritance, Offers to Refund $32 Shipping Fee - baldona
There's no way there isn't more to this story. All the bank has to do is cancel a check, that's like a $25 fee to the customer at most. Why wouldn't this have been wired? No way I'm sending a check that large and a wire is $25 for an unlimited amount as far as I know, cheaper then mailing the che...

re: How to get rid of beavers? - baldona
There's a really good Meat Eater on Netflix about beavers. I learned a ton about them from that show, he shows how to trap them and what not. I'd say trapping is your best bet. Tannerite their house if you can it that doesn't work....
