You ask us questions about managing various investment accounts, cash reserve emergency funds, mortgages and HELOCs, dollar cost averaging and more….and we attempt to answer them all. PK joins in the fun with an excellent piece on income. What does it really mean to be in the 1%….the top 10%…..25%? Doug brings trivia, we talk about the new installment in the Hobbit series, and more.
