Okay, I'm being Foolish by suggesting this, but here goes: I'm 46 years old, newly divorced and awaiting a fairly sizeable property settlement, which I want to invest. Can any of you explain why I have great intuitive sense about investments (I tripled my money 10 years ago on Ben & Jerry's and made 60% on a purchase of Glaxo Wellcome), but I pay a bookkeeper to balance my checkbook/s?? I think you should set up a singles messageboard, so we can help each other out: single parents trying to squeeze out a few extra dollars to set up college funds, invest for retirement, and say it's okay if we spend a "grand" on that long-desired trip to Ireland.
