<<I believe that investing is a scary process.>>

It need not really be all that scary if you are comfortable with what you are doing and why you are doing it.

<<Though even now my stomach churns when I make my monthly buys but always settles when I'm done because I know that I have done the right thing. I will keep control of my portfolio for as long as my mind can keep up and it is still FUN.>>

I have found that I experience much less stomach churning and have even more fun if I have added to my portfolio a combination of DIA, SPY, QQQ, and cash at short term interest.
