    Hi there... yeah, I have been doing hospice chaplain work in retirement. moved all my $ into a 403b Minister's Housing allowance fund so I can take it out with tax considerations. Life is good, and now I have 7 grandkids which keeps us really busy. Hope all is well with you and yours and you are safe and well.
  2. nice buying opportunity soon . sitting and waiting to jump in
  3. Darn tempted to buy back in today, at least partially. So...if I were to do so- which would I buy? "S" or "C"? Tough decisions here .
  4. [URL=""] I'm with you about enhanced interrogation. Here is an interesting op ed. I'm not sure where it belongs on the MB - I know there's rules re: political commentary. FYI KonaK

    I suggest using unspent Stimulus money to fund the bill.

    That way it will comply with PayGo, and everyone gets what they want with no additional deficit spending (on top and in addition to the Stimulus borrowing).

It's a balancing act!

by James48843 on 08-26-2020 at 12:01 PM
A couple of observations- from doing this for the last 20+ years. Right now everything seems to be all pretty, and drifting higher every day. We KNOW that this isn't going to last forever, but it is times like this that I really enjoy looking at what I've been able to accumulate, and thinking about whether it's time to rebalance my accounts and bank some gains.

Many years ago I used to just put all my ducks in a single fund (*originally, all there was was G fund, then C and F were

Another day down.

Work day is finished, and it is time for a quiet evening alongside the blue Mediterranean.

The waves are gently rolling along the shore, and I sit on the balcony of my sea side hotel, tasting a glass of dry red wine.

These are the days to remember. I'm working in Israel, and have an ocean view room. I've spent the first third of my trip reviewing engineering data and manufacturing procedures at a key jet engine parts maker.

"Europe Must Defend Itself Against A Dangerous President"

by James48843 on 02-06-2017 at 09:59 PM
Never in my life did I expect to see a headline like this:
From the German News Magazine "Der Spiegel":

Europe Must Defend Itself Against A Dangerous President

Trump as Nero: Europe Must Defend Itself Against A Dangerous President - SPIEGEL ONLINE

I was lucky enough in my youth to spend 4 years serving in the United States Army in Europe- Germany, to be precise. It was a wonderful experience, and I got to learn a great deal about things European,
