I'm 66 and have recently retired and loving it! I was a Paralegal for 30 years and it was hard to leave my boss attorney and good friend and move south to join my daughters and five of my seven grandchildren - but it was time to relax and enjoy,Unfortunately, in my younger years we did not have the Internet with easy access to Wall Street, etc. so I was never involved in the Stock Market. However, a few years ago, I purchased four (4) shares of AOL (as a joke); gave two to my brother for Christmas and two for me. These four shares costs $88.00, but with a hefty commission. After the many splits, he holds 148 shares and I hold 100, after taking a profit here and there. However, with that profit, I opened an account online, did lots of research, etc., and made several other good ivestments. My initial $44.00 (2 shares) has miraculously become $15,000.........unbelievable!I'm having so much fun with my *little* Portfolio, I decided to start an Investment Club with friends and family.....I'm the Treasurer!I'm retired and having a blast!Failte"fool"ly yours,Ellen
