Q:  is a mortgage a wadte

Q:  Should I prepay mortgage with 457?

A:  Probably not.  Retirement saving is important, and paying penalties to access retirement funds is seldom a good idea.  But it depends on the circumstances.  If you’re old enough to be drawing down retirement accounts without penalty, go ahead.  If you’re in a situation in which you are leaving state employment, you can tap into those 457 funds without penalty.  Whether or not you should depends on how on-track you are for retirement and why you want to prepay the mortgage.  For example, if you’ve lost your job, have decent other retirement savings, and your house is underwater but you can refinance to a much lower rate with some prepayment (and are not planning on foreclosing ever), then pulling from your 457 might be a reasonable thing to do.

    If nasty is mean, I usually leave them up unless there’s cursing. I have my opinions, but want other people to feel like they can share theirs, too. Even if it’s an ill opinion of me. I don’t like them, but, hey. If there’s nasty cussing and smut, they’re gone, though.

    I love how they have to ask you what THEY did instead of graduate school….

    Q: does folding kids sock inside each other stretch them out?
    A: Start with a water bomb base for the sock, then when you try to fold the kid into the sock make sure you use a rubber spatula and gentle motions to minimize the deflating.
