Another real estate question/selling Manhattan coop

Thanks for all the helpful suggestions regarding selling my farmhouse. My GF needs help selling her apartment so she can get out of NYC. She has a studio apartment in a coop in a very nice (and very snooty) part of the Upper East Side of Manhattan. It's been on the market for almost a year without a...

Social Security survivor benefits

My wife passed away 4 1/2 years ago, at that time the people at Social Security told me not to bother claiming survivor benefits until I reached my FRA (66) because I was/am still working and the income would wipe out anything I might collect before then. I am now 62 and plan to hold off claiming my...

I have 5 acres of pasture and have used a Dixie Chopper with a 60" cut and mulching blades for 8 years (zero radius); the farm came with a Kubota tractor which I used at first but it was way slower (the Dixie will to 15mph on a straightaway....I hear that some people race them!) I've had no pro...

Re: Best Coffee Maker? What do you have?

For drip coffee Technivorm Moccamaster is great, but expensive. Bonavita is just about as good and less expensive. Clever coffee dripper (like a melitta dripper with a valve on the bottom) is much less expensive and makes good coffee. For espresso grinder is more important than the machine. Baratza ...

Re: Career advice for retiring doc

Thanks to everyone for their kind words and thoughtful suggestions. I am going to ask my son's gf, who is an internet media person, to help me set up a blog. If I do it well enough, perhaps it will attract the attention of some influential people; perhaps I could use it at the basis for a book. I wi...

Re: William Bernstein-When you've won the game, why keep pla

I've been lurking on this forum for a year and want to thank all of the contributors for their honest, insightful comments; as a soon to be partially retired doc I have learned a lot.

Re: Unbiased financial advisor sought in Princeton NJ area

I have been using David Gray for the past year and have been very satisfied. He's a member of the Garrett network and charges by the hour.
