Hi, Rick and Gang,

I have gone, as my father would say, "hog wild" with investing. I bought MSFT and HWP on Monday speculatively and had planned to sell them pretty quickly. Well, you know what happened. My cash is tied up in them, and I don't have much left to take advantage of the downturn in the Market.

Do you have any feeling for when they will be back up to $100 and $117 respectively? Here Bill Gates announced his plans for his new Internet tracking company, I think it's called, and reported great earnings and then his stock drops. I said to myself yesterday, "Do people not like him." Ha.

I would appreciate hearing from any of you or anyone out there in the investing world.

Best wishes,
Arlene Poff
