Financial aid stories rival good fishing tales too...... Without looking at the actual award letter, it's impossible to know what mix of grants and loans another student may have gotten. One of my son's roommates last year was also telling everyone that ... more »

IRAs are just CDs? Is this a common misconception? IRAs can be just about anything, from a brokerage account invested 100% in stocks to purely interest based instruments.

My dad worked on the orchard for 45 years, usually at least 50 weeks a year and from negative temps in the winter to triple digit temps in the summer. It was extremely hard, physical work without glory or the $100K win bonuses to vie for. 34 weeks of ... more »

Only generic advice I'd give is that if you don't need the money desperately, don't cash it out. Just go down to your local broker (or even banker) and have them roll it over for you. There are some rules to follow that will let you receive the check ... more »

As a sub-25yo living in Seattle at the time, I was fortunate enough to see a lot of acts live before they gained a ton of national attention. Nirvana was "big" well before Nevermind was released, just not "mainstream". There's plenty of good music from ... more »

I could definitely understand the "heat of the moment" explanation. After being held at gunpoint yourself it would be very difficult to think rationally about the exact point to stop, and I can't say that I'd make me correct decision if it were me.

The craziest fire I've ever seen was the Tyee fire in 1994. My in-laws nearly lost their home in that one. One night we were out hosing down the roof and deck to make sure no embers caught it on fire and the wind picked up a bit and really got the fire ... more »

I'm a little over an hour south of those last two photos. Those are in an area that several small towns were completely destroyed last year so I didn't think there'd be enough fuel to feed such a large fire.

Oh the rest of the area doesn't do The Gorge justice. I'm not saying that it's a better venue than Red Rocks, I think they'd each be ideal for different bands and performers, but I think The Gorge holds over twice as many people and it still feels like ... more »
