Don't worry when I am around!

It's dangerous to encourage me :-)

GG pick, owns farmland, If there is any global inflation then food prices will sure to raise,

When GG recommended to sell, I agreed that the valuation was high, but I don't want to close a position just because the price is high; therefore I sold around 63% of my position in the $19's and held the rest.

I like it long term, but I believe it's way too risky to earn the label "ballast position": it's more likely to sink your portfolio :-)

if not I guess between expensive medicine and food, you still need to eat every day, but can skip med.

I knew a guy who tried to skip med (antidepressants, to be more precise) and I heard that her wife was not quite happy with the result...

long CRESY and several pharma stocks
takes no meds
