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?

I am so sorry Teddy, hobbling is no fun and can turn you into a couch potato.

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?

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.

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.

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.
