Re: Bucket List

I only lived in NY for maybe three months in a training class, but it wasn't the real world. Didn't have to find a place to live or get a phone put in or anything like that. But I do love New York. Much more congested than when I was there, [more]

It is Not Me!

I went to Montserrat, the volcano blew up three months later. I went to Indonesia and shortly thereafter they had the big tidal wave thingie.

Did I mention I recently went to Hawaii?

It's a tectonic planet, what can I say?

Re: Alexa

Alexa is creepy for sure, but for $3.99 a month with Amazon unlimited music, it's great to be able to wind your 8 year old grandson up with instant "Tie Me Kangaroos Down Sport" by Rolf Harris. The giggles are worth the price of [more]

DNA

I had my DNA done. Boringly western european. Over 85% English. Now getting over not being the least bit Spanish. Found two second cousins I didn't know.

Been tracing my family tree too. Goes way back. When most Americans were farmers [more]

Re: Alexa

I dunno, Bullet, sometimes you just get a craving for a certain song and then the gizmo is perfect for instant gratification (think making your grandson giggle with Tie Me Kangaroos Down by Rolf Harris).

Not about to turn control of any [more]

Re: PCLN/BKNG earnings

So Naj, why do you think Priceline chose to give up all that brand equity they had built up over the years by changing their name and symbol. I am not a marketing guy but it seems like kind of a "New Coke" move to me. Dumb.

Give me [more]

The Market

Since 2003, there have been a lot of market turns in March. As I recall, the tech bubble sell-off ended in March and the bottom of the mortgage crises sell-off also came in March.

The current correction could end up being a classic Elliott [more]

Re: Should the Countess start SS ow?

I retired just after I turned 56. Harvested gains and liquidated after tax savings until I reached 62, then started taking reduced SS.. Gains on SS would have been nice had I waited until 70, since I was maxed out. But by taking Social Security [more]

Alexa

I have one of those Alexa robot thingies. Handy to have in the kitchen when working. It plays music if I ask, gives me the news and tells my how many tablespoons are in a whatever.

Re: Harry Dent on Fox

looks like the bears are coming out.

Which is usually bullish. I think this is an unpleasant correction, not the Big Enchilada. Play it like you feel it.

Re: Anybody Buying?

Sally, the tax changes should help the kind of businesses that use PAYX. Then again, they should help small and madcap stocks, but these have not really been participating in the rallies these days.

I haven't looked at PAYX in detail in [more]

Re: Chinese Extermination of Christianity

Re: Not clapping at Trump's parade
