Are we keeping CALM?

News all over about egg prices going higher and blah blah blabadee-blah. I hate to be Mr Negative, but if you are tempted by this news, do not be.

Re: CALM, SYNT, & T

Re: CALM, SYNT, & T

Hello folks,
CALM has been preyin' on my mind for the past couple of weeks. As you all probably know by now, I sell eggs. Easter always pushes prices up to unreasonable levels and my diner customers look forward to that darned holiday being [more]

Re: Two Ideas

Good choice to not buy MAT, whafa.

One of the first things we were told is to invest in what we know. We've all read the stories. So when my kids were young, my daughter decided on "Barbie" stock for her UGMA. We bought a hundred [more]

Re: The reason

<<<So maybe just a tweak for you. Are you still young?>>>

Only if you consider the "new" 80 is somewhere around 40.

Re: The reason

Good day, jah:

Doom/Gloom Vacation

The great thing about being away for three weeks: being away for three weeks. Also no access to anything market related, no email, no phone.
