Re: Extended Weekend Agenda

I've done that there Texas Chili a coupla times, even though I've never been near Texas.

I'll put in some black molasses to darken it and sweeten it just a touch. Maple syrup is way too Canadian.

Re: Kinder Morgan has a good day

I sold the KMP rally and took the 21% gain.

I believe the dividend will drop almost immediately.

I may re-invest, but for now the final form of KMI is too hard for me to figure out, and I have no idea what it will become. [more]

Re: I hope it hasn't started yet...

Do you use true "stop loss" orders or are they "stop limit" orders?
