re: What to do with my Roth? - TorchtheFlyingTiger
A simple option would be to transfer it to Vanguard and buy into a low expense ratio mutual fund such as S&P 500 Admiral Shares (VFIAX). An S&P 500 index fund spreads your your investment across 500 of the large US traded companies and you'll get returns approximating the stock market average. ...

re: Battlefields of WWI fading into greenery - TorchtheFlyingTiger
The Europeans have plenty of battlefield tourism. There are museums and battle sites all over the place. I've visited battlefields of Normandy, Battle of the Bulge, Operation Market Garden, Maginot line forts, St Mihiel, Verdun, Bellau Wood, Waterloo and many lesser known sites. They all had gift ...

re: Battlefields of WWI fading into greenery - TorchtheFlyingTiger
I went on a tour of several WWI sites with NATO staff officers. At one sight our guide was digging up partially exposed unexpended rifle rounds. He'd pry them open, pour out the powder and light it off to demonstrate the why we needed to be vigilant, stay on marked paths and not disturb anything t...

re: Am I being too stingy with mortgage payment? - TorchtheFlyingTiger
If you can swing the extra 5%, you may be better off with a conventional loan. The key benefit of VA if avoiding PMI but you pay for that benefit with a 2.15% funding fee. Shop around to see if you can actually get a better rate on the VA loan to offset the added cost....

[quote]all he mentioned was he was in the Air Force. Went right after he graduated.[/quote] I'm sure he has some good stories and perspective to share. It would have been awesome to have met him when I was a cadet over 20 years ago. I bet no one in the AFROTC Det even knows he's out there. If he'...

re: How to confuse a conveniece store clerk ! - TorchtheFlyingTiger
If there's no line and I've got cash I'll let my first grader pay then ask him how much change he should get back. Usually they're just nice and encourage him but occasionally the clerk seems genuinely shocked & amazed that a child can do simple math without the register giving him the solution. A ...

re: What are the point of public libraries anymore? - TorchtheFlyingTiger
I took my 7 year old to the library yesterday. He loves it and is an avid reader. We own tons of books but he's more enthusiastic about reading the ones he picks from the library. He gets his own card and learns to be responsible not to lose or damage books and return them on time. We're not poo...
