I wouldn't trust someone with 420 in their name to cook something for a mom anyway :wink:

Depends on the bar, but it can often be a problem. The signature on a CC receipt means NOTHING. Have you ever tried to put in your electronic sig with one of those sensing pens? They just look like scribble. I'd bet good money that if you rang up a $100 tab and forgot it at the end of the night, you...

Nice. :roll:

Might think about changing your nickname to "SingleBy40" or "StillSingleAt40".

I believe Clark Howard has resources on planning ahead for a funeral and other expenses. You can save a lot of money by pre-paying too. It may be worthwhile to drop the policy, pay for what you/she can right now, and not have to worry about it. Best of luck to you and Granny. I hope when I"m th...

Don't go crazy over this! If it's short-term, just get a 6 month CD (if you know it'll be AT LEAST 6 months). Otherwise, an ordinary savings account or money market is your ticket. You don't want to take a risk you'll lose money. It'll be a pity to look back at your account in 6 months or a year and...

You can do better than Vanguard Prime right now, but keep in mind that Prime is about the best money market mutual fund out there. Interest rates are just crappy. Before you get in the habit of chasing rates, be sure you know if it's worth your time. FWIW, I checked with Schwab yesterday (I have the...

Only way to get around most of this is to make the transaction in the bank. But I'd personally tell you to get lost because I don't have a local bank. You may just need to use your own judgment. Hard to judge a book by its cover, because a good scammer should be smooth, but if they're totally set in...

I'm a little late back to this thread but I'll put in my two cents. Personally, I will match out my Roth IRA every year if at all possible. Why? A better question is "why not?". If I do it with the express purpose of there being a possibility that I use it for an emergency or a home downpa...

This is late but I saw that you got no replies on it. To my knowledge, the GNMA fund does have a solid track record and good returns. If I remember correctly, there are situations where it returns very poorly compared to other bonds. I believe rising interest rates (?). Basically, they act like &quo...

Not a news site, but if there's something out there worth reading, someone will usually post it. The commentary in the threads is often more insightful than the original article.

Not to mention that someone REALLY should have thought twice before using teabag as a verb.

My mom drives a 2007 Highlander Hybrid. It's a joy to drive. The hybrid system only bumps MPG up to the 28-30 range, but it's so smooth and quiet. Cost in the lower $30s I think. I don't think Honda CR-V has been mentioned. Another possibility. I think you're asking yourself the right questions. We ...
