Once Again......



I get in my own way!!

No need to sell out early today...sure the market is tanking, but the strategy worked! And I'm out 30-something cents...grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

Chicken!!


Yup - I caved this morning before the market even opened!
I didn't like the way the market was shaping up with the credit woes turning global. CSCO's such a major component and I didn't want to risk it. Personally I'm making money this week, and I'd like to keep it that way!

Sld CSCO @ 31.40

Strap in and enjoy the ride today, all ye longs.......I'm going to work on my tan!

WILL RETURN AT 3:58!

Neighbors!!!


So my son and my SO have been nurturing a sunflower plant for quite a few months. They planted it during a little presentation at the Brooklyn Children's Museum and when it got big enough they planted outside. It got really tall and the flower was just about to open, when it was felled by our evil 7 year old neighbor! This is my Homage to the Sunflower!

Thought for the Day...

You have but one life to lead. If you go to your grave with a list of "reasons why I didn't" as long as your street, all it means is that YOU DIDN'T. - Andrew Matthews
