I used $25K in self-directed IRA funds to invest in a scam, Pinnacle Property Solutions, LLC, run by a guy named Rusty Shields. I still hold the investment, but it's worse than worthless; it's going...

I took the plunge into residential RE after I came into some money and the stock market seemed like a good place for part of it, but not necessarily all of it. I did a HUGE amount of research. The...

Back in town

Hello all -

I used to hang around here and converse a lot; later, I picked up a couple of extra jobs which cut my hanging-out time to nil. Now I'm cutting back on extra work, so I thought I would...

Re: Baby stuff

TH,

I think the baby backpack and Snugli are excellent choices for the early months. I found the stroller really valuable. I couldn't use those carrying things. They were way too heavy (my kid was...

10-3 Boston, and even this sick-of-baseball-since-the-strike non-fan sat up and took notice.

Thanks for the good words, guys.

I think I am going to get rid of the van. Once I fix the scrapes and clean out the hockey drek, it will look again like a low-mileage, clean, gently-used car. no...

Re: Abusive postings etc

I agree with you dex; I am, however, proud to claim the label. I'm well to the left of Kerry on many topics, but I'm certainly voting for him in this election. You're right that this is not the...
