re: Investing in a private company - FOBW
Legit private equity firm bought a stake. How big a stake and what valuation compared to the $1.50/share available to the employees. What % of the company is available to the employees? Sounds like owners and private equity firms plan on cashing out at some point and want to keep the horses h...

re: Garrett Ward indicted on 2nd Degree Murder - St. Charles beatdown guy - FOBW
Thanks for the reply. The pricing decision was my curiosity. I would have thought 15k was low. Reasonable in fact, but I would have thought people would have tried to get more from someone facing such a serious charge. For point of reference, I knew a guy who was popped buying ~ 100 lbs of w...

re: What do you think is going on at my neighbor’s house? - FOBW
No Idea. But sounds like an allegedly common reverse mortgage situation. Reverse mortgage is made out in the name of the husband ONLY. Reverse mortgage broker lies and says the wife can be "added later." Husband dies first, normally. Old lady is put out on her ass. Reverse mortgage people ...

Outboard Motor - Lower Unit Oil Color - FOBW
F150 Yamaha Changed the LU Oil and the old oil was a dull green. Yellow when new. I don't think it was milky, but the dullness of the green color kinda made me question that. Anyone else get green oil from their LU? I did not run it much last year, so maybe the green is just yellow on the...

re: Untagged Ducks - advice needed updated OP - FOBW
Write a letter to the DA explaining that your actions were out of ignorance, not malice, that the cost seems out of proportion to the offense and ask if he can show some consideration in your case. If you have connection to the area, include that. Include a little background regardless. Only cost...

Boat Shed Without Electricity - Solar Battery Charging? - FOBW
I am thinking that a solar trickle charger would work to charge the trolling motor batteries but I have some questions. It's a 24V tolling motor. Do I need to isolate the batteries from each other while charging and have two solar chargers? Any particular brand of solar charger to look at? I...

re: Have you ever donated a car to nonprofit? - FOBW
The one I donated was running, but do not think it matters. The donation value is no longer a made up inflated number. I believe it is tied to the actual proceeds generated from the ultimate sale, or some other limiting factor. I think I ended up getting less than blue book assigned to the donati...
