After AOL blew up (OMG am I old!), I put my kids' accounts into simple
buy-and-hold ETFs so they couldn't blame me for making mistakes.
Now they are richer than me. But they'll still blame me anyway


Having kids richer than you?
I'm not a parent, but if I were, what else would I wish for?
There is a silver lining to every cloud.
Yeah, sure, it might be somebody else who gets the silver....

Incidentally there was a big international survey done recently on the
question "do you expect your children to be better off financially than you are?"
France came in pretty much dead last, at 9% of respondents saying "yes".
Gosh this can be a depressing neighbourhood.

Of course the Monaco Grand Prix was fun today.
