In the early 1960's my husband and I would chart some stocks with paper, ruler and pencil...daily. So we did have fun watching the stocks. Much later we would watch the tape for a little while. Computers brought a whole lot of new fun. I have been advised to lighten up on all that over the counter stuff and get into some safe holdings that would not be volitile. Your statement about 5 years worth of lliving expenses makes the idea more palatable. Naturally there are stocks I couldn't part with and my main goal, somewhat strange, is to leave as much money to my 3 "children" as possible. Now I think your lesson has motivated me to look again with new eyes at what my ML guy suggests and put part of that fun stuff into the safe area. So thanks.My daughter, teacher of public health nursing, came over one afternoon to plan a scavenger hunt for her students to become computer litterate to find health articles on the net and in 1996 that was a struggle so she ended up practically jumping up and down shouting "YAHOO" and I could hardly wait to buy it when it went public.
