Ah, a music scholar. Thanks for replying, Bob. "What Kind of Fool Am I?" First recorded in 1962. Here's an article about it:

I felt like I was taking a college class for no credit. This whole world of investing is so different from working as a pharmacist. I saw an article about "How to Invest $20, $100, and $1,000 (and More)" Here is the link:

I thought maybe I could do something like a Roth and chunk in as much as I can every payday for emergency spending money. That sounds like what you were saying in your final paragraph. My best bet may be the "Drips" method they mentioned. I'm concerned about keeping good records for dollar cost averaging, because I'm a notoriously bad record keeper at home. Thanks for your advice!
