    Great advice, gents. I started sinking as much as I could into 401k plans starting right out of college. First company I was with matched up to 8%...that was nice. Currently, I'm sinking about 20% of my income into the company savings plan and pension.

    Never pass up the opportunity to receive advice from those that have been there before you.

    Good morning all! Get to work with the annoying one at work all week since she is retiring and I'm taking on some of her duties. But I do have an excuse to browse eBay since I found out yesterday that I won a contest over on Blowout and the prize was a $75 BIN card off of eBay. Any suggestions on a nice HOF auto in that price range?

    former job would match -5 years 5% ,10 years 10% ---20 years 100% before all these retirement plans sold out when i was at 18 years . lost 50G in that BUT got it back plus . my best advice look at who your company sells to RESEARCH - bought at 25 hit 200 a share . i was in $hitty business = toliet paper LOL

    Good morning! Ended up with 6" of snow over the weekend. Hopefully it melts before the next batch comes in Thursday. 1"-3" Friday & another 1"-3" Saturday. 15 for a high Sunday for the Chiefs / Patriots game.
