LOL - That's a good one Z-Bar! Who are the "experts" you refer to if you don't mind me asking? Your posting has particular significance to me because I just requested forms to rollover my former employer-sponsored IRA into a self-directed IRA.

Have you invested using any of the BTD approaches at this site?

Other than these disappointments, I hope you still have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
