My mistake was not discovering Buffett properly until after the bubble had burst.
I was up 100% riding the momentum horse and thought a sensible (blue sky) plan
was enough. The bubble burst, I lost 50% to be back where I started 12 months
or so before.

barcoo and board
absolutely agree 100% !!

ps. not really back on board at moment - one finger typing and will shut
down shortly until i get to brisbane. good to see you all posting !!
