    Thank you for that, rosa. It was just a case of "necessity is the mother of invention." It's amazing how "ambitious" you can be when you've had a few years of shaking out the sofa cushions for the...

    I agree--it reminds me of the Fountainhead where Rand casts the ambitious, self-serving people as gods and the people in the helping professions as weak and banal. I hated that caricaturization. ...

    My millennial daughter was ranting about how she thinks her peers are a bunch of babies. She isn't a workaholic, but she is responsible and works really hard at her job, and understands that that's...

    Yes, that is so nice of you, Tradd. I'm sure it was much appreciated.

    I'm having a hard time distinguishing between "modest" goals and "reasonable" goals.

    Since we're talking about finances (as opposed to other goals), what are modest goals? I think of "buying a...
