Default My Great Birthday Present !

I watched my IRA sink like an anchor so my retirement is postponed until 10/10/25.

I think you should take loans on your $20 million in real estate and buy Fountain stock

Default Another Depressing Thought !

I'll be 88 years old in 2025 and I can't imagine what that's going to be like.I just spoke with the baker who's doing my birthday cake and he told me that he had to put VIAGRA in the candles.

Yeah it's bad out there. I work in the financial industry and its scary what's going on right now. I'm only 28, so holding steady should should pay off for me in the long run (I actually up'd my 401k contributions 3 months ago), but it's got to hurt if you are anywhere near retirement. I'm just hoping that I have a job in the next coming months.

Best line heard yesterday at poker at our golf course;

"The nice thing about this market is I had 50% in cash Monday and now I have 80%!"
