Yep, the DOW sucks, but it won't always.

It not a question of if, it's a question for me of when. I've been pretty agressive in the past, have no plans of slowing down, and not coming out of retirement. I know the market will come back, just a differently.

Spending my money around has helped. A little in real estate, most in stock for the long term. Had to borrow from my stock equity for business but interest is low, less 3%, so not hurting.

Taking care of health is my main concern. Now, in my 50's in good shape, keeping my head above water, at least for now, I'm keeping my retirement dreams alive.
