Hi All,

I was running my numbers on the investment portfolio today and calculated that it has given an IRR of 10%/yr for the last five years. This is incredible!. I had set myself a modest goal of 5% and have been very, very, very conservative in investments, investing in index funds and companies like Berkshire so that 10% is a nice surprose.

I may start adding to the investment pot a bit and take some risk to see if I can push up the numbers a bit. With any luck, I may be scot-free in about 25 more years.

- TD
