Abitarecatania~  Yes I took a huge fall today, but I'm not giving up on my picks either.  I know we are heading for hard times thanks to over indulgent people who just don't get it this world.  "Moderation" is not even in their vocabulary. Banks are giving loans to people who really don't have the income to be buying such expensive homes. "Personal responsibility" is the key to a change.  I don't see much of that at this moment.  I see people spinning out of control because of their own greed.  Everyone wants quality things in their life, but the happiness starts within ourselves.  Being a Fighter Pilot's daughter, I've been taught to "dig in" for the LONG RUN and not to give up so easily in life.  Brazil does have a good economy right now.  Maybe the U.S. needs to pay more attention towards Brazil. I guess I'm just to bull headed because I won't give up on companies I believe in strongly. I know I'm going to pick myself up off the ground a lot, but I'm willing to take the punches proudly with pride in my heart.... I hope you understand.....  xo  And yes your portfolio "rocks".

Thanks for taking the time to write and I will take your words written seriously.  Former Northern California Gal~
