Re: Retirement Friendly States

Couldn’t pay me to live in almost any of the southeastern states. I’ll be staying in Minnesota, where it’s beautiful, but just cold enough to keep out the riff-raff. The best thing about MN is you can talk to death about how great the opportunities are here for jobs, education, health care, outdoor...

Minnesota worked for us for 20+ years while kid was growing up (I think one the best school systems in the country). Now, son going t...

Loved CSU compared to CU Boulder but son is gravitating towards UCCS (smaller school). We have friends but no family in Minn., nothing holding us back,...

Re: Life Advice: deciding what you want to do.

OP - Our son is on the spectrum and I can tell you as parents we did a lot of comparing to other kids when he was younger. It took us a long time to truly comprehend that we are not made from the same mold hence we don't have to follow a predetermined path. There is nothing called "normal" and uniqu...

Re: Best city/state to raise an autistic child?

We have a son with ASD and the overall support in the Minneapolis St. Paul area has been great. He was diagnosed back in 2004 (he was 3) in his school. There wasn't much information back then but the school system here is very mature and geared towards special needs so we followed their lead. In add...

Re: Which US city would you move to?

Maybe slightly off topic but has anyone considered a move triggered by a kid going to college? Our only son will graduate and is considering colleges in CO next year (might be subliminal suggestions from DW, she fell in love with CO). I have lived in Minneapolis all my adult life and love it here bu...

Spouse and I are both 48 and our only son, 17, is on the autism spectrum and has hearing loss. We have been so focused on getting thru one day at a time that haven't thought about what the future holds. He likes Math (pretty good) and Music so we are hoping he goes to college next year but it's an u...

Re: How do you 7 figure guys organize multiple accounts?

I have financialengines thru work. We have added all our accounts and it gives us a consolidated view. Although we don't follow the recommendations it makes. Also use spreadsheet to track growth over time.
