'Mom,Much thanks for your kind words. Yes, we all love to have other people agree with our opinions. Humans are social beings, and shared ideas imply acceptance and community. But agreement teaches little, just as doesn't pointless or thoughtless disagreement, which isn't just a distraction. It is distructive. But to see someone take an idea that you hadn't thought of, or that you disagree with, and for them to run with it? Now, that is fun to watch, and it is tremendously inspiring, because you say to yourself: "What if I borrowed that technique but applied it to...?" Learning results from leveraging the ideas of others. And if you're looking for some new ideas, get a hold of Victor Canto's book on asset allocation. I just stumbled onto it in Barnes & Noble as I browsed the investing section. He has pushed theory the further step it needed to go. The book was published in March of this year and retails for $35.95. But used copies, and even some new ones --I just bought mine off of eBay-- go for as low as $6 something, which means either than the publisher over-estimated demand or that readers don't like the book. If the latter, they are wrong. The book is worth engaging, and at $6 bucks ($10 with shipping), buying it is a no-brainer. It will be a week or so before I get hold my copy, but it will be a subject of some posts that total revise the one I did one "Investing Benchmarks", plus give a solid direction to some other problems I've been struggling with. CharliePS You just turned 60? That's so cute, as I just turned all of 63. LOL
