Hello to all you Fools in Fooldom!

I'm looking for a post that was published sometime between(?) April and Sept 2000 (I think). It was right around the first time that Cisco fell.
(A portent of things to come.) Anyway, someone posted this incredible
post about a little acorn falling and it growing up to be this big old
tree. The post got about a million recs. Beyond that, I can't remember
much about it, except that it may have been by someone named George (or maybe not.) I think he claimed to be a retiree (or near retiree) who had been around for an earlier stock market fall, so he said he wrote from experience.

What board was it posted to? I don't remember - it may have been on
Women & Investing, Cisco, or who-knows-what-else I was reading back then.

Oh yeah - I am almost certain it was post-of-the-day. And like I said, it got about a million recs. (Well, maybe only 999,999 recs, but it was a lot of recs.)

I've looked manually through several months worth of post-of-the-day and Cisco postings, but there's got to be someone out there who remembers this better and knows the Fool's search system better than I do. Can you help me please?

Many thanks in advance - and fool on!
