Cold enough?

Out here on the lovely Olympic Peninsula, we are working on cleaning up our gardens and thumbing through our Territorial Seed catalogs. As a former Alaskan I worry about how folks are getting along with the polar vortex.

Saw a head line

Market Crashing! Forced me to log on to something and check a market view. Vix looks interesting but crashing? Will look at the close later. I am paying attention to interest for cds and bonds.
Have totally lost all appetite for risk.

Bucket List

Crossed something off my bucket list.

1. Spend three months in New York City.

Turns out 10 days was enough. A sudden rain storm is enough to make traffic a mess. Mentally ill folks, homeless folks on every street. While we doubled [more]

Harry Dent on Fox

saw a clip where Harry Dent explains to a reporter why the chart says the $DJI could drop to 14,000 by April. the reporter was confused by chart talk and all the IF and ELSE language.

Re: Anybody Buying?

PAYX was one I used to swing trade because it was so sensitive to interest rates. I almost wish I still had an Morningstar account. If payrolls are going up and interest rates going up, it should be on a list to check on.

Re: Anybody Buying?

I am no longer fit . The progressive arthritis every where has super slowed me down. I am so glad I enjoyed my outdoor lifestyle because turning 65 put an end to most of that. At 70 it is a painful slow go. I was depressed for a while but doubled my [more]

Re: Anybody Buying?

In the 2010 flash crash, I had a few low ball limit orders hanging out there. Either the market went by to fast or someone decided they weren’t valid within a certain range. None hit.

At this point in my life , I would only buy some bit of [more]

It’s happy hour at Casa Sally’s. Just returned from a small village in Mexico where I didn’t have TV, daily internet, or news. Cabo Pulmo. Best fishing ever! Snorkeling better elsewhere.

The village of 130 folks is off the grid and you see [more]

New GOP tax bill

Just checking in to see if there was any conversation about the new tax bill. I have been looking at my last year's taxes and realize I am not going to have much wiggle room in preparing my taxes in 2018. I am likely in for about a 10% increase [more]

Re: Anyone Home?

Climate change is allowing locals to plant the grape. Our first planted vineyard went in a several years ago. They managed to buy some of the best farmland inside city limits. I suspect many millions have gone into this startup.

Re: Anyone Home?

Teddy,

The out of control costs in housing is just one more thing that will end badly. With my house doubles, I will have a hard time staying in it.

Re: Anyone Home?

70 is not the new 60. I still have a half year to reach 70, but the aging process seems to speed up.

I have hit that age where I really don't care to follow the market or even open my statements. I never thought that would happen to me. [more]

Re: I Regret to Inform You

Teddy, do you find yourself a little bored? I find my world getting smaller. Several reasons that I don't have control over.

I do have to say the dollar to peso has me thinking.
