Re: New Car Post Purchase Recommendations

Great information from everyone so far. I do appreciate it. Keep them coming please. And especially about getting extra keys made. I had quite a debacle getting chip keys for my 2004 Mazda 6. Had 2, lost 1. Turned into a 3 week nightmare. The Odyssey is some fancy keyless fob thingy. But maybe getti...

New Car Post Purchase Recommendations

Close relative of mine just purchased a 2019 Honda Odyssey EX. Opinions on new vs used & pricing aside, the plan is to keep it “forever”. Any tips / recommendations on what to do with a new car? Rustproofing? Detailing? (yeah its new, but I dunno, some supper expensive wax/clearcoat to “preserve”) P...

Re: Protecting vinyl plank floor from sofa

Thank you everyone for the replies. It's a sectional, with recliners. I don't there there will be legs. I think it's metal rails. But I don't know for sure. Which is why I was thinking an area rug or something. I have tons of extra vinyl flooring planks left. I was gonna put some pieces under the so...

Re: Any interest in a central New Jersey chapter?

I live in Franklin Township, Somerset County. Not sure if that helps. There is a Township library; I've never been but I could go get a card & some info.

Re: Vanguard Daily Balances

Thank you everyone for the replies. It takes a few minutes just weekly. If I dropped to monthly then it'd feel too burdensome, the time I'd be spending. Because I derive some enjoyment from the numbers ("wow, 1% is that many thousands???") its not so much a chore, yet, plugging numbers into my sprea...

Vanguard Daily Balances

I'm a long term investor, "buy & hold", (30 years old now), but I love data mining; this isn't for market timing or trading my investments. Currently every Sunday (because I just finished doing such), I login into my Vanguard account, & copy my account balances for the past week into an Excel spread...

Re: John Bogle has died at age 89

Mr. John,

Thank you. I've never met you. But you've done more for my life then I have. And so many more people than you would ever know.

We've lost a truly good person. The world is worse off without you.

Re: Shell $0.05/gal discount card

Shell does have a thingy where you do not have to swipe your Shell card or enter your phone number. You can use your credit card & it looks up your account. Or something like that, I don't actually have this set up myself. https://www.fuelrewards.com/fuelrewards/link (I think) I have also seen on th...

Sole Proprietor employing Child not on Taxes

First I should say, hi to all. Long time browser, registered today because I've had some questions brewing. This place is great, I've learned so much just reading, & I have benefited much more. That being said............... My father operates an LLC taxed as a sole proprietorship. He has several W2...
