I think the PhD would open up more options, even if you decided not to take them. Um, not exactly. A PhD is not like a BS on steroids. Undergraduate degrees (even in technical majors) are still about broadening your education. They open way more doors than a high school diploma or a GED ever could....

Nick, thanks for reviving this topic! I took lessons last summer, then didn't pick up my guitar much in the fall. Well, I decided that in 2008 I want to really start to play, and that the way I'd have to do it is to--duh--practice. So I've been doing it, and decided (on my own) to do what you sugges...

Joining the conversation a little late, but with a few thoughts... First, how we do it. My husband and I have our own separate checking and savings accounts, as well as retirement accounts (through our employers as a result of our individual jobs). We also have a joint checking account--mortgage, ut...

This discussion prompted me to pull out some statements and a calculator. My husband and I boggled at the result, in a good way. We also had a nice conversation about the broad strokes of where we'd like to be five years from now, lord willin' and the creek don't rise. Since I'm a Nosy Parker I poke...

I'd guess that stratospherically wealthy people don't need to be on call all the time--they have underlings for that sort of thing. In my line of work, there is little possibility that 24/7 phone access would make much difference in my earning power. I don't think I'd want to have the kind of work l...

No advice to offer, but I will say I'm sorry to hear of your husband's injury. It sucks that his employer screwed him so badly. Have you considered talking to a lawyer?

Best of luck to him in his new endeavor.

I nominate "Not rich, but closer than I'd ever thought I'd be in this lifetime." Perhaps as a subheading of "getting there".

Now, I would certainly not turn up my nose if someone walked up to me and handed me $118.59 as a gift toward my kids' future education. However, if Mia's been a member for 6.5 years, that $118.59 works out to ~$18/year, which is not going to make a big dent in someone's college bills. "Free&quo...

In the spirit of general discussion of cell phones, I'll throw in my two cents, with the explicit acknowledgement that it's probably not the answer for the original poster, who uses her cell phone a lot. That said, my husband and I have super-basic cell phones that we use very occasionally, and most...

Mory, looks like the best way to get a Wii for Christmas 2007 was to buy one in November. Be patient, they'll be back out there as the season cools off. Santa did deliver (after he bought a console in November, which has been living in our closet since) and the whole family had a ball with it yester...

Now that 2007 is coming to a close, it's a good time to reflect on what the old year has wrought...before making resolutions for the next year. So, how was 2007 for you? Thanks to the GRS community, I made some serious headway on a longer-term goal. From the New Years' Resolutions discussion last ye...

I'm certainly not going to quibble with free money. However, if the concern is socking money away for college, I think UPromise is not a great deal. If someone is spending more on their grocery bill than they otherwise would in order to boost the UPromise balance, not such a great deal. If someone i...

Just as another point of view--I'm not so excited about UPromise. To me it seems like just another marketing ploy to get you to sign up and register your information with a bunch of companies, and a way of trying to sway you to buy one brand over another, which may NOT save you money in the long run...
