Re: Help me find a good slow cooker

My chef at home uses The Crock-Pot Slow Cooker. The price was $40 - $50. It can go up to 10 hours and has never disappointed. It is about 4 years old and is used frequently.

Re: “Status Quo” Bias in investing. Does it hurt or help?

Along Taylors thinking.....

If only tax advantaged - VSMGX Vanguard Life Strategy Moderate Growth

If both taxable and tax advantaged - Same 4 Vanguard funds placed accordingly in each account. Stocks in taxable and bonds in tax advantaged.

Then go into inertia mode.

Always strike a balance between now and the future. You save and have a goal. Excellent.

However, while riding a bike to exercise and save some benjamins is good, doing it in Chicago...in January...when it's -15 degrees before the windchill...you might want to rethink this next time.
