    APAAS - worth it?

    Yes - She loves the program. I think the main benefit comes from really good teachers and being immersed with a class full of ultra-motivated and hard-working students.

    Closing costs questions

    I'm closing on a new construction home in August.  I'm choosing to impound my taxes & insurance with my lender and the Closing Disclosure is showing the following:  Property Taxes of $1,250/month for 8 months.  Is this normal?  Why am I paying property taxes for 8 months into my escrow balance...

    Laker games possible without Cox/ATT?

    quick question on Google Fiber - Does anybody know if there's a streaming tv service that will show Lakers games?  Or are we out of luck with that? I think only Cox and AT&T Uverse have Spectrum SportsNet.

    Fresco @ Eastwood Village

    I also would choose the Portola Springs neighborhood over Eastwood.  Aside from the other issues mentioned earlier, Eastwood just feels too 'cookie-cutter' doesn't feel special.  But to each their own.

    Ford F-150 Lightning Electric Truck

    Yeah, I've noticed several Rivians driven around the past few days near the headquarters.  Looks interesting.  Also, not much to add...but they look pretty good.  Just going to be a slow hill to climb to convince hardcore truck people to switch from their F-150s and Silverados to go with a Rivian.

    Why so negative on all your posts?  Smile and think positive thoughts sometimes!

    How to avoid being carpet bombed by phone calls about refi offers.

    About once/week, I get a "I have a buyer for your home" text message for (1) my investment property, (2) my SISTER's investment property, and (3) a random LA property that I have no affilitation with.  Getting really annoying.

    Looking for advice to find a good realtor

    You lost me at "He wasn't representing us".  Maybe your agent dropped the ball and put the blame on the convenient "I was ghosted" excuse.  Is that possible?

    Stock picks

    Apparently several other stocks are on the short squeeze now.  If hedge funds stop their short-selling practice, that might add to the current stock bubble across the market.  This is nuts.

    Can someone please explain the madness surrounding GME speculation?  I'm not sure what subReddit has done here, but they just manipulated the market big time over the past few days.  Now, billionaire investors are getting skin in the game and benefiting from this ridiculousness!  SMH.

    no more onions or relish for your hot dogs anymore either.  Plus, if you want mustard or ketchup, it comes in a little plastic sauce container, not in a packet that you can even spread out onto your hot dog.
