I'd like to meet the military vets, and shake all their hands. Letting them know how much their sacrifice means to me, personally.
Taylor jumps out for me, as my father also was a WII vet. Again, thanks to all our vets for their service. :sharebeer

Who would you like to meet most for a cup of coffee other than Jack Bogle (I'm up for that!)

Mine are:

3) Toons- I like his advice and his avatar makes me think he enjoys life!
2) Taylor Larimore- I have learned volumes reading his posts and of course, books! 50+ years of investing experience gives credence to when he says "stay the course"
1) Livesoft- gives fantastic financial advice and seems very calm, cool and collected.

Honorable mention-Nisiprius. Great follow up and questions when posters chime in with statements they deem as facts. I find his devils advocate very illuminating at times. I also have an image of him posting with a pipe and smoking jacket! :D

Toons turned me on to VBIAX. Thanks Toons.

There are many people here whose advice has helped me enormously. I'm better off (in all senses of this phrase) for their guidance. The one I'd like to meet in person, however, is Laura. She helped -- not me, but others -- with a degree of kindness and caring I find rare in this world, always focusing on those who were most disoriented and without their own resources outside the board.

I admired her posts and miss her contributions.

Of course, we need career members in foreign service to act as ambassadors, arguably now more than ever.

So many good, quality people on this forum with great advice. But, if forced to choose just one, it would be Taylor. I consider him to be a great American.

It is all those other costs that are just killers. Getting a hairpiece, getting it all tuned up and styled, botox, losing 15-20 pounds, a years' worth of beauty treatments, getting more stylish clothes and a nice watch. Oh man, the wardrobe itself is a lot!! Probably need to hire a personal trainer. Probably an image consultant and a life coach. Then probably some finishing school so that there are no social gaffes, holding my cup of tea with my pinkie held out just so. I don't know, it just seems so much easier to be an anonymous avatar
This made me laugh.

Yes, it is normal to see an anonymous poster you respect as a super god/goddess when in fact....most of us are just plain ordinary people. Warts and all. :happy

I get a lot out of Bogleheads and all of the regulars but I especially appreciate all of the regular posters who are 80 and up. I don't use Facebook and Twitter and Instagram skew young, so I feel like this is the only "social" place on the internet where I get to read regularly read thoughtful comments from people who have many more years of experience with this world under their belts. (I'm 40, so I feel older but still working on wiser)

As you noted, Laura, the Queen of the Bogleheads, is currently serving as the US Ambassador to Nicaragua and, in that capacity, isn't allowed to post here.

However, Laura will be at the upcoming Bogleheads Conference, so everyone who's registered will be able to meet and chat with her. During the book-signing session, she'll be signing attendees' copies of The Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning which she helped co-author.

Hi nedsaid -

Thanks! It is probably time to think up a good bond thread topic!
Well, somehow bonds don't wind me up like the Value threads and the Dividend threads. I have commented a lot on bonds, learned a lot from a family member's experience. Bonds are more complex instruments than people realize. I also learned a lot from my broker, I call him Broker #4, he started his career in a firm that specialized in High Yield instruments.

Edit: Those rebalancing threads can get a bit heated too. :wink:

If your kids don't want to post here then they (and you) are also welcome to contact me with questions. I get a lot of military personal finance queries from teens & young adults. If they get out to Oahu for summer training then we can go surfing.

Better yet, if they want to talk with someone in their generation then I can put them in touch with my daughter and son-in-law. They're both three years into their active-duty careers, one through ROTC and the other through a service academy. One appears likely to continue on active duty after their five years and the other one may be counting the minutes until they can affiliate with a Reserve unit.

Taylor Larimore and it's not even close (no offense to the many other interesting BHs). He's kind, smart, and helpful.... and really has a great outlook on life. I like a lot of his views and just the way he sees things. We've DM'd a few times and he's just a really interesting guy beyond the stuff he posts publicly. I actually recently bought a DVD bc he told me about one that he was in... but then realized that I have nothing to play it on so I still haven't watched it.

But yes, the LadyBogles are awesome. No matter the true scope of their numbers.

Nisiprius - the quality of his posts are simply outstanding. I even enjoy the rare post of his that I disagree with.

Bill Bernstein - The "why" should mostly go without saying. Cause he's "THE" Bill Bernstein? Well, of all of the various finance books I've read, I generally have enjoyed his the most, despite occasionally not understanding them sometimes.

If you're ever able to grab one of the coveted reservations to a Bogleheads Conference, you'd get to meet and chat with Bill.

When I introduce Bill at the various Conference functions, I always say that he's one of the smartest persons I've ever known.

Add retiredjg to the list......quite knowledgeble and helpful.

Duckie is another poster who is very helpful to new posters, our posts have crossed many a time when new posters come on board looking for assistance.

I especially appreciate the posters who clearly have far more capability than myself to employ sophisticated tilting, trading, and hedging strategies but have convinced me (without being condescending) that I can fare just as well on a risk adjusted basis by keeping things simple. Taylor and Nisiprius stand out in this regard, but of course there are others. Additional mention to bsteiner (a person I would not hesitate to "hire" for his legal expertise) and coacher (he posts rarely but has been extremely generous with valuable "offline" advice).
