Well, I am glad you clarified that for me, but I still see that you are 5 years ahead of schedule. That's great and I agree it is better to be lucky then good in most cases. Unfortunately, you never know you were lucky until after the fact.

This is why I love this place. It shows us an unemotional approach to being good and hopefully a little luck too. I work for First Union National Bank, like you the company is doing well and I believe on the road to bigger and better things.

Hey, for the record it has been great discussing this stuff with you. Thanks and keep me updted to any good ideas you may have or even some good stories. I am a numbers guy and love statistics, so I leave you with one.

I saw on television a few weeks ago that if you purchased one-thousand dollars worth Microsoft stock when they first went public in 1986 you would have $256,000 today. That means a $4,000 investment would make you a millionaire in four years!!!!!!!!

I know I can do this too, by doing my homework and not listening to people who only gain from my commssions I pay.

Be foolish forever!!!
