I get the shine, what does the rolls mean?
Pepperoni rolls. My mom makes them around Christmas time. Imagine a nut roll, but with pepperoni, cheese, peppers and spices instead.
Sounds delicious. Is that a tailgate tradition at WV? Or just a Christmas tradition in the Kriegs household?

Re: best place to have paper gold invested now

That reminds me of gold ETF trading strategy we used to talk about: buy gold ETFs at discounts, then sell when they show a premium. Trade between ETFs as needed. I'm too busy/lazy to do this, but it's kind of a fun hobby if anyone wants to give it a shot. Would be nice to report premium/discount le...

Re: The Permanent Tooth and Gum Care Regime

Tough call without multiple photos from all angles. If you're not having discomfort biting on it, I would probably watch it in perpetuity. I've seen many of these with fracture lines outlast the owner. But if you have symptoms, treatment is indicated.

Re: New I Bond Rate 11/1/18 to 4/30/18

Pugchief, Do you have a better alternative for deep cash than I bonds? Define deep cash. I can't see locking up my cash for long terms. Too much uncertainty and potential lost opportunity value. I'd rather own a more liquid instrument in exchange for a slightly lower rate. Vanguard Prime MM is payi...

Re: Nerds! Help!

these days I just assume that anything I order from Amazon is likely to be a fake, Chinese-made knock-off. Not worth it to me in this situation. Sophie, I'm curious why you say that. I order stuff on Amazon almost daily and have been happy with the vast majority of purchases. Also keep in mind that...

Re: Long Term Care

Lately I've heard that north of $3 million it's feasible to self insure. That depends on what your other expenses are. If you have 2M at retirement but could live on 1M, you have another 1M to self insure with. If you don't use it, the kids get an inheritance. My goal is to die broke and let the ki...

Re: Nerds! Help!

Right. Think of it this way: Whether you use cable, DSL, Fios, or dial-up the modem converts the incoming signal to device usable format. The router then disseminates that formatted signal to your devices. Sometimes, the put them in one box, sometimes separate. They want you to rent from them becaus...

Re: Long Term Care

I think LTC insurance would be worth considering if the rates they quote you initially would be guaranteed not to increase beyond X%/year for the life of the policy, with X=twice the rate of inflation, or something else reasonable. But since that is not the case, I can't see where paying for a bunch...
