Now I can buy 70 transcripts of Nightline!

Well, my grandparents house has been sold, and I just got the check for my share of it.  I deposited the money into a local bank into a money market account, as it had the best interest without locking the money up for long term.   I need to search around to find a bank with a better interest rate, as this bank was only offering 2.25%.

Or, better yet, I should consider investing in stocks, bonds, or some other instruments.   My 401(k) is pulling about 6.5% interest, so I know I can do better.

I need to be careful with the money, as that is the last thing I will ever receive from my grandparents.  No blowing it on buying stuff, I need to invest it carefully.

It's nice seeing all those digits on my computer screen.
