Re: Putting your mouth in the money: What is your current allocation?

Is anyone else on the forum doing the the two fund route when implementing the PP?

Re: Help me choose a secondary computer

Holy crap tom cruise looks so different there.

Still looks damn good for his age these days though.

I wonder how much he spends on getting work done on his appearance.

Re: Most Appealing Aspect of PP Strategy

It's nice to be able to, as Craig said, whistle past the graveyard.

Time for an update?

It seems that almost all original responders to this topic are no longer active here.

I was impressed, though, with how many of them were fairly close to 25/ 25 / 25/ 25.
