re: Start traditional IRA or bump up 401k? - PlanoPrivateer

re: I have no idea what to do with my money - PlanoPrivateer
If I were you I would make sure my stocks holdings are diversified. Since you work in oil and gas, I would make sure I didn't hold a lot of those companies. Maybe consider some index mutual funds or ETFs. I would park some of my cash in a money market fund and some in a short term low duration bo...

re: McKinney back sets Texas HS record with 592 yards rushing - PlanoPrivateer
I was there. He is listed as 6'0 and 185 pounds. I could be wrong but I think that is generous. He is not deceptively fast, he is fast. Cuts on a dime. I asked what college they thought he might go to and was told that they didn't know. By the way, Plano East had a chance to come within one sco...
