Re: 20 years

“In my dreams” never had the life I have now lead. I could not have imagined in my forties, programming in my cube , trying to keep my daughter in her classes, my bosses happy, a social life, a busy treadmill of tasks, that I would be where I am [more]

Re: Reading, PA food bank

Helping Harvest is great. They have a caring professional team. I met a bunch of those folks who came out to the Peninsula for a conference. They supply to all the food banks in this area. If I had known about them after I retired, I would have loved [more]

Re: Cold enough?

You can tell I’m a changed woman when I think staying here, busy in my community, rather winters in Florida, is a good time.

Just finished my tax return. Yup, I’m tired of winning.

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.

I am taking a Thai [more]

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]

Re: Anybody Buying?

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.
