  1. Money Mama :

    Anyone use a financial planner through Fidelity? I have investments there and got sort of talked in to making an appt with a CFP. I have been doing meetings with a planner on a bi-annual basis, but his advice is always quite complicated and expensive. Fidelity’s CFP’s are free, and I like the idea of continuity. The other guy I have been using doesn’t do yearly checkups – it’s just schedule when you want. I don’t have lots of $ to invest, but would like to keep track of my retirement savings in a more meaningful way.

    What troubled me is that this guy said that my money needs to be “managed.” I’m more of a set it and forget it mindset.

    Hive – thoughts?

  2. Congratulations, Kat!

  3. Congratulations, Kat! #1, #1, #1!

    • +1 for Kat, but what happened? Is Kat haveing a baby? If so, YAY!!!!

      I was goeing to comment on the NY Times article and the comment’s from women. I agree men are sexists, and we have to work for everything and are not generaly appreceated for who we are as females. It is time men stop to think that it is WOMEN who do the work and bear the children and we do NOT get credit for any of it from sexist men. My ex demanded everyting and did nothing (but grunt in the toilet and stink it up). I do NOT miss that. I want a man who will be kind and genetal and support me and our children. I want to be rewarded for doeing my wifeley duties and NOT have to kow-tow to men who just want me to take my panties off for them any more. FOOEY on them!
