Re: Hey Friends

My zip code has @28K people and has had a total of 328 positive tests. Me, I am virtually quarantining. At my age (73) getting COVID-19 is like playing Russian Roulette with a six shooter. Odds of dying are around 1 in 6.

Re: Self Quarantine, Day 29

One thing I have discovered while all this is going on; my temperature is always sub normal. I know this happens as we age, but I haven't even hit 98 degrees once in a month. 96.5ish is the new normal. Going to get this checked out if I can ever [more]

Self Quarantine, Day 5

A.M. Temperature, 97, no symptoms. So far, so good. The wine cellar is taking a real hit.

Much to be grateful for, especially selling Boeing at $420. They may actually go broke.

Re: Poll: have you changed any travel plans?

I was in Andalusia Spain last week and had to get out on the double. A 17 day trip planned six months ago was reduced to 4 days. Felt safer in that part of the world than I do at home. Heck, there are more cases of corona virus in the county I live [more]

Re: Hey! Market Statistics Guys and Gals!

I almost bought this morning. We bounced off the lows but I don’t think I need to be in a hurry. When SPX down 25 smells like victory, you can take your time.

Fortunately, I rebalanced before the beat down. Was time to sell some stocks and [more]

Hi

Naj has been all over me because I failed to inform you all that I HAD A DENTIST APPOINTMENT ON MONDAY.

I kid you not.

In contrast to my past behavior, I have decided to go over the cliff and ride this one out. It sucks.

Re: Manufacturing Activity Hits 10-Year Low

Yea, I know I retired almost 18 years ago but every day is the first day of retirement is how I look at it. Anyway, at the end of 1978, my [more]

Re: 3.5%

Hard to fault Obama for the unemployment rate he inherited from George W. Bush. In fact, it's hard to see any improvement in the positive rate of change since Trump took over, unless you are accusing the St.Louis Federal Reserve of producing fake [more]
