My wife and I went for our honeymoon and had a great time. I am normally fine visiting someplace just once but would go back without question. We rented a car and went to a different beach everyday.

Re: Who Invests 100% in Passive Index Funds/ETFs

95.7% Index Funds, the remainder is stock in a large regulated electric utility that I have owned since birth. My wife and I are lucky to have some good selections in our 401k plans, the lowest ER being 0.01% and the highest 0.27%.

Re: Car Seat Covers

I have been very satisfied with the Marathon seat covers in my truck, but I think they only cater to the truck/SUV market.

Re: What do you do with your "x-year-service" gold watch

My wife took her watch to a jeweler and had the company logo removed, although it was only an emblem that was pinned in.
