Convert to a Roth IRA – Not on Your Life?

There were a ton of people who talked about the need to convert their traditional retirement accounts to a Roth IRA at the end of last year. This is because of the elimination of the income limit for those who made the change. The change was motivated by a simple difference. You have a tax free withdrawal with a Roth IRA and other IRA's have Taxable withdrawals, and that a very major difference. Under a traditional IRA, when you hit 59 years years old, you must begin to withdrawal. Under the Roth plan, there are no government enforced withdrawal requirements. Still, it seems that most individuals will not benefit from the switch and here's why? If you make the switch, there is an imm... »

Virginia is for Lovers

It's hard to decide whether Virginia is for lovers or not. Appropriately it is one of the few remaining American states where state laws are still deciding the sexual morality – or lack thereof – of their citizens. Perhaps it was correctly named, valuing as it does the sanctity of marriage, and the celibacy of those who choose to remain single. Nearby in Virginia, you can not have your cake and eat it too. However, while out of step with the lax moral habits of the citizens of the majority of other American states, Virginia's history is certainly filled with love and romance. It's from this state that we have the story of Pocahontas and Captain John Smith. According t... »

Is Your Stucco Leaking?

The problems with synthetic stucco claddings are well documented. Lawsuits involving Internal Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) have been common knowledge among the home inspection community for years. Most home inspectors, however, are ignorant of the problems that are occurring in high priced sub-divisions with both coat plaster stucco and the newer one coat stuccos. I believe that the number of homes with extensive rot and mold reflected within the walls is fundamental. Traditional three coat stucco is a mixture of Portland cement, lime and sand.

Simultaneously, the environmental movement demands that we create the smallest eco-footprint that we can, guarding the environment preciously. Both lifestyles appear to have much in common, yet, oddly, there is only a nominal effort to blend the two together. There is a vociferous opposition to the eco-friendly concept by those that seek to deny the reality of climate change. The anti-tree hugger groups gravitate toward the arg... »
