Of course snowbirds are welcome :happy We would love to have you join our meeting. Take I-75 and you'll be here in a flash. We have another group that comes from Orlando and a Boglehead who drives up from Key Largo.

Please wear your bengal22 outfit and hat so we recognize you :wink:

I sent you a private message advising that I will be attending the Jan meeting.

Thoughts for discussion.
How, where does one learn to do "Settlement Fund" accounting.

A discussion on withdrawal strategies. Taxes?

Thanks,

Hello South Florida Bogleheads 8-)
Reminder for the Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018, meeting at 12 noon - please see up-thread for details.

Several Bogleheads have asked whether Taylor's new book on the "Three Fund Portfolio" will be available at our meeting.

As of this time, the publisher has told us they "don't believe we will be out by January 21," so unfortunately we may not have the book available.

We will, however, have Taylor with us and for sure, he will discuss all matters and answer all questions regarding the Three Fund Portfolio with his experienced financial savvy :wink: and his usual grace and kindness :D

It appears that Taylor's new book on the "Three Fund Portfolio" will not be available by then for purchase; the release date is set for April 18, 2018. (I guess we have to file our taxes first, then we can get the book :mrgreen:

However, the book is available for pre-order on Amazon:

I'm looking forward to attending the Jan 21 meeting in Hollywood. I thought the last meeting (my first) was terrific. A super friendly crowd, and an opportunity to meet new folks and share points of view.

I go to church in Hollywood and they don't wrap up until around 12:30.
Would it be possible to schedule future meetings to start a bit later, say 1:00 PM?

South Florida Bogleheads!

We are happy that Larry Auton (Boglehead mingstar) will again be joining us for our next meeting :D

For those who may not know the history of the Bogleheads, Larry is the co-founder and co-owner of the Bogleheads Forum. He helped to bring Bogleheads.org out of the early stages and into its present readable and workable form.

Larry is also the tireless computer tech who maintains the Bogleheads computer server and keeps it running smoothly today.

Some good reading on Bogleheads history:

Larry- we're looking forward to having you join us. Don't worry about the timing. We have food and drink and we have the room until closing :happy
