oak

I bought this at 50.00 a couple weeks ago for the dividend. I thought it would be my most risky purchase. at this minute it is my only stock in the green and has been green the last three days. Not a lot, but green.

My IPad has arrived

I think I paid close to 3000.00 for my last big desktop and loaded with software, so I could work from home, back in the 90's. Its hard to believe that I have more communication, better applications for a fraction of the cost.
