Going to New York City this summer?

Sunday, May 31st, 2009
itsjustme asked:

How many days is necessary? I chose to go to NYC instead of having a big party and getting a gift for my 16th birthday..

What should my mom and I do while we are there?
Other than the Statue of Liberty, is there anything else we should see that’s not in Manhattan?

What hotels are safe and good?

Thanks!
Oh, and what is the weather like in the summer?

Is MIL being passive aggressive/trying to make statements with her ‘gifts’?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009
Moo asked:

Husband and I received a book entitled ‘Live Well on Less Than you Think’ for Christmas from MIL…we are in our mid to late thirties, not just starting out, by the way. Husband makes a very good salary and has saved a substantial amount for retirement over the years- which his mother knows. MIL thinks world is too material and lives very modestly (on purpose) in a rural, isolated area.I was pissed at the ‘gift’ but didn’t tell husband…a couple of years ago I was experiencing a lot of stress at work and at the same time was working on completing an advanced degree in my field. Lo and behold I received a book from her entitled ‘Women Who Think Too Much’ (my husband had mentioned to her that I was experiencing stress at work, but did not go into detail. The stress was not affecting our marriage as we get along well and help each other through things like this). Even if DO think too much, I found it totally inappropriate to send me this book. Do these gifts seem passive aggressive?

Interesting Art?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009
larryctimm asked:

I have a most interesting piece of artwork. It is a drawing by Maurice Merlin (1939). This was given to me by my ex-father in-law (Ann Arbor, Michigan). He was a Psychiatrist until retirement. The story is most interesting! Mr. Merlin was an excellent portrait artist. He was out of money while in college (U of M??). A wealthy Russian lady asked Mr. Merlin to draw a picture of her house keeper’s daughter and in exchange, she would pay his way through college (the remaining year). He titled the drawing “Mexican Girl.” It is a VERY interesting and eerie drawing. The Russian lady later became my father-in-law’s client and gave this to him as a gift to hang in his office. My father-in-law said that some people tried to contact him and placed ads in the local papers trying to obtain this drawing on numerous occasions. He felt the GIFT should remain in his office until he retired. He then passed it on to me. How would I go about finding information out about the potential value of this drawing and the artist?

is land contract bad?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009
Old Corpse asked:

What do you know about land contract? I am thinking of buying a cheap (yes, that’s the best word, not “afforable” or bargain priced…LOL) mobile home. What do I care if it falls apart in 30 yrs? I will be old then. Maybe in a nursing home or retirement community. Sure, people like to will/gift an old house to thier children, but… by the time I am 60, I would hope that my 30 yr old kid has already bought her own home. She will not need the sale of my house to benefit her. Times change. people live longer now… wait… does that mean I should buy a stick built/block house? Please? someone help me! advice, please! I’m very lost. I’ll do whatever you tell me to do. I’m young. I don’t know the first thing about buying a house. It is suggested that I get FHA approval for my loan. But I have $15,000 for a down payment… or more ($8,000+).. (but I wanted to go shopping for new beds, matteresses, maybe even a used car, any appliances, stoves, washer dryer, dishwasher, needed)…
Thank you!!! Fascinating! excellent help everybody! wow! Yeah, I suppose an “older” mobile home would be much much “older” in 20 yrs, huh? what will I do? I’m not sure. But it is on , gasp, State land! The location is to DIE for. Surely, someone will want this property , purely based on the location, it has re Sale value! Awesome Idea though. WHERE will I live? if my mobile home falls apart?????? That’s a good question. Maybe I can save my usual “house payment” amount towards a new mobile home? Because this one will be paid off in 2-3 yrs if I use land contract? then, I can continue to place the normal “house payment” amount into a special savings fund? for next future mobile home??? maybe??? we all know how some people can not keep a strict savings. but this is really important!!!!! Besides, all that “extra” money would be pure profit. It should go into savings. How many beds and tvs can one person buy????? LOL

tjlim asked:

My father is planning to transfer his IRA to me and my sisters IRA or UGMA/UTMA, equally.
He is not yet in retirement age. (below 65)

Is the transfer taxable?

*As far as I have heard, if he withdraws the IRA below retirement age, he would be taxable and we would be taxed as gifts.
