  • Dividend Growth Investing And The Reluctant Spouse [View article]
    Cheryl, so sorry for your loss. I too lost my husband 2 years ago. Had prepped my kids for the event that I would go before him, who knew. I handled all the money. I remember one day before he got sick going to the bank to deposit my check, and I told him, he needed to learn how to deposit his check off the debit card they put his on, and he started laughing and said he would do direct deposit(which he was against) if something happened to me. He was amused to tears, I told him I would haunt at least every other Friday. He taught me a lot, and I am grateful...how to figure out a fair price for repairs, even though we did our own. He tried to teach me the computer, and I pick up a little, but when it crashes, I'm sure it his spirit helping me get back running, because I don't have that much luck or knowledge. I am grateful he taught my son how to fix cars and home repairs. I look at my knifes in my butcher block and I think, what do I do when they need to be sharpened? It is the little things that will make you cry. It is a blessing to be or have been in good working marriage. I think it is stronger when couples can maximize weaknesses and strengths, together, as partners. We never know when the end will come..So everyone hug your spouse today! Best wishes, Linda

  • The Real Better Advice For Seniors: Part II [View article]
    eye-rolling, grunting ugly face attitude started at 10 with my daughter. Got the hand-held mirror out, called it her buddy, told her to look at her face when she talk to me, so she could see how ugly she looked. It worked--carrying that buddy around the house for 1 day cured her, all I had to say, do you need your "Buddy." HeHe--she gonna need a buddy for her daughter(3yrs) in the years to come.

    Miz Magic, well done!!! I am in the same financial place as you. After the first year of investing, the only thing I know for sure is, I will probably never learn it all, but I will try! Love the SLAP and SLAM, and look forward to future articles.
    Best Wishes, Linda

    Thank you, David! Like the poem, "Enough"- enough rain to appreciate the sunshine, enough laughter to appreciate the tears,...
    Also, to know- I want what I have, because I have what I need. Sharing your knowledge has helped a great many!

    Great to hear you confirm what I had been told by fidelity. Already told the CPA I would be coming in sometime in June to figure out how to grow some income in a roth or what I have. I figured it would be through a backdoor. Miz is correct, you are very kind to all the newbies!

    5+, hang tough, your doing right by your kids, no one else has their best interest at heart than you. She will respect you when she becomes an adult and that is worth a little verbal bruising. To boot, it is funny when the grandkids come along you can be supportive and have a good chuckle at times that your kids struggle trying to master parenthood. Best wishes!

  • A Retirement Reality: Save More, Spend Less And Invest In Dividend Stocks [View article]
    RS,
    Thanks for another good article! The only thing I would suggest different: Young adults should first save 3 to 6 months living expenses and keep a balance of 1000 in checking account. Once that is in place, all the "Life Happens" moments that arise will not hamper their retirement savings plan. This would eliminate temptations to cash out 401's or IRA's because of the unforeseen. It worked for us, we are not wealthy, but were able to handle bumps in the road. Best wishes to all!

    Very well written, Thank you for all the wonderful articles that you submit for our pleasure. Very good advice. I think I am struggling more with the sale side then the buy side, but, you and Robert may have convinced me to act.

    Dave, I always enjoy your articles, you come across as "Down to Earth", or as a wise Doctor from the South told me last year, "Salt of the Earth Folks." Thank you for passing on valuable lessons with everyday circumstances.

    Miz, what a great suggestion. I have been trying to figure out how to get my 29 old daughter and 26 year old son more engaged in investing. Had to bribe her to read 1 of 4 books(sorry, David she whimpered and whined, but did take it)and I would read 1 of hers. Sorry to get off topic.
