Nice to hear from you again. Tell me if I've got this right:

Mrs. NBlue: Don't you think you're spending too much time on the computer?

FoolNBlue: Yes, dear.

Same sad old story.

Ha, nope. Arrete has it right, I'm brewing my own beer now when not working too much. Also made one batch of hard cider (still in process) and after trying a friends mead this weekend I'll probably try a batch. His tasted like a sweet Riesling or maybe even an ice wine. -Not that all mead is sweet but I'd be making it to try and keep the wife happy since she does not like beer and I've got some 20+ gallons on hand.

Thanks for the replies, her 401K is with Fidelity and the expense isn't excessive so the immediate impetus is simplicity since I manage the finances. Working as a budget weenie for the gov't, it appears things are changing and if they're changing on the spending they might change on the revenue side too and I didn't know which one was more politically correct if tax policy diverged from the two. I'll probably move it but thought I'd post to see if anyone thought of a reason to keep it with Fidelity.

Her new plan stinks, no match in recent years and the investment choices are pretty weak. There is a S&P500 with an ok expense ratio but no other viable options... she'll participate so we can hide another $16.5K from Phil's old colleagues.

Now that I just skipped 17,000 messages maybe I'll see if I can keep up again.
