Ahoy! Now you have! LOL

Yes, I'm well, better than ever. Over the past ten years or so I lost over 50 pounds and I'm down to the weight I had as a young adult. Along with the pounds I also lost most of my medications, no more type 2 diabetes, no more cholesterol, no more heart disease. It is really quite amazing, the fat was killing me.

Investing wise I've gone back to more of an NPI type investing seeking out high growth stocks but making sure to avoid anything that looks speculative. Simpy put, great busineses bounce back.

As for Jim, he was always pushing the envelope and asking us to push the envelope. Unfortunately he fell in love with financial stocks that Nassim Nicholas Taleb calls "bad black swan prone stocks." That hit him hard when the market collapsed in 2008. Chief "Kritik" lashed out with malice and Jim eventually just gave up. I can't blame him for not wanting to take the abuse.

Ten years later Mike's charts are still great! I use them a lot.

I wonder what IcyWolf is doing...
