    We did not get a tax refund because we owed money. However, I paid the taxes through direct debit from my checking account.

    I read somewhere that the best investor is the lazy investor. One who does dollar cost averaging and only looks at his or her portfolio occasionally. One that does not panic but stays the course.

    Interest rates

    I have an fixed index annuity, an IRA and a pension. I think of it as diversifying. If the market tanks, at least my pension and annuity payments remain the same.
