btw, one of the in-progress things is a Financial Planning Statement (using examples from

Attached is a screenshot of my TOC.

It's not done yet (some of those sections are blank/TODO, like my glide-path asset allocation to/past retirement, re-balancing plan, risk tolerance) and I haven't printed it out and gone over it with C (wife) yet so we can verbally agree to it (it has some commitments in it).

Is there a community here?

Can I just gloat for a minute?

One of my teams has a quarterly "Yak Shaving Day" (or week) which is cool but the coolest part is the graphic they have for this edition:

FTR, I typo'd "mh" as "me" in the CW originally. I almost left it.

Forest fire, smoke 

1) Today, 2) yesterday, 3) yesterday sunset photos of the mountains. I think it's better today.

Most of the glow was from the emergency vehicle lights, not the fire anymore at that point.

It's about half a mile as the crow flies from our house. We could hear the chain saws the firefighters were (and still are!) using.

A new hole in the roof (my first, unless you count solar panels on a trailer). Before, after, and debris shots. Finished right before sundown. Now the dryer can vent correctly.

This one made me feel uncomfortable.
