Re: CPA/Account error - who's responsible?

As I attempt to read through the weeds here, I get the feeling the real issue is not so much who was right/wrong in terms of the revenue recognition issue, but more to the point of a) we have a long time relationship with an accounting firm we like and trust, and b) if the work would have been perfo...

Re: 2017 BOGLEHEADS CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

Mel,

Unfortunately I was traveling during the last three days, so missed out on being able to respond quickly enough. Please add me to the waiting list, if enough spaces open up.

Getting 16 yr old started in investing

I have a 16 yr old niece, and would like to find a way to encourage her to get interested in investing. I'm sure she, and probably more her friends, would consider this a very "uncool" area of interest for someone her age, but I don't care. I was thinking about starting a fund at Vanguard for her, a...

My wife and I, both 57, have been retired for a couple of years, me from a public accounting career, and her from advertising and marketing. We are both in good health, active, and we've always had a dream of visiting various major US cities for longer than the typical "tourist" visit. Our goal is t...
