Hey Dirk (I mean Ron),

Sounds like we have similar households. My wife just stopped working to care for our newborn (Nicole, she's 4mos now and supreme ruler / commander of all around her), but she never had an interest in the finances. Totally left it to me. However, I think that just changed now that the payout in her pension was about 15 times less than she thought it would be. Golden Rule, "know what you have". She has decided to learn the ropes and will open an IRA with a discount broker and spend a lot of time at the Motley Fool.

Oh yeah, you gotta trust me on this one, I am definitly a pain in the @##!

Ron
