Re: What is your AA, given your age? and, Why?

Age 38 Wife is 34
80:20 Stocks/Bonds. Feel this is a reasonable allocation for our risk tolerance.
Was 100:0 from 2006 (when I started investing) to Nov 2017. Realized I had been lucky over this period and corrected my allocation based on various recommendations here. Thank you!

Re: Best way to get Skype or Facetime on a TV?

We had the same problem as yours. We now use a Lightning to HDMI adapter and it works with iphones, ipads. No issues so far. I think you can use a USB-C to HDMI adaptor for other non Apple phones as well.
