    Thank you Steady, so much for the offer, doubt I'd ever take you up on it. Like most of the rest of us civilians, I've got 240 reset, that's what it's there for. If I do end up in a motel, I'll just have to replenish my emergency reserve funds and not get to use them for investing in the market later on down the road-at which point I'll whine a lot!!!!!. But hey, as Bullitt has learned, that's why its wise to have the emergency stash first and worry about market investments after that.

    THANK YOU !!! That really puts my heart at ease.

    These are the most important lessons to learn from:
    1) ALWAYS Keep the 240 Hour Reserve and Maintain it
    2) ALWAYS have a CASH RESERVE - because you never know when you'll need it.
    3) Pride is a good thing to have (as in this case because she is prepared - BUT IT IS A BAD THING if it keeps a person from accepting the genuine gifts of mercy and grace others are inspired to give.

    This morning was light but now the flood is starting so may not have a chance to get back until this afternoon - or next week.

    Federal Employees are allowed to carry 240 hours of Annual Leave over to the next year and maintain that amount forever.

    Most will have to use anything over 240 Hours - year after year. A 'Use it - or Lose it' policy.

    Hi all, even tho it was raining torrentially when I first got up this morning, it finally switched to big wet snow for half hour to an hour that amounted to maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch new snow before it stopped, about the time I decided to go down the street to look at river levels at the bridge and decide if I wanted to risk going to work Decided it was worth the risk, water very high but not totally scary, blue sky showing in places, and updated 5-day forecast no longer calls for additional serious rain coming in that timespan. So I'm at work, river as high as I've seen it the past 10 years, but maybe it won't go much higher in the next 24-48 hours. Think I'll likely get home tonight.

    CASH RESERVE - I'm sure glad I had mine resting in the banks knowing full well there was always the potential of a blind side and sure enough - hit me hard. But I was prepared to buy the bottom and I did - soaking up over $500K in 432 individual stock positions - now we'll see if I was correct in my judgements. The biggest surprise for the majority would be for a day to day advance in the face of all the gloom and doom. There is no more forced selling to experience. We now need another 9 to 1 upday to confirm the greatest bullish significance. This may happen in the next few weeks - if it does we may have a new leg of the bull market. Snort.

    Yippee skippee! Started the new year with a teeny tiny gain on my 5% of 5% biweekly contribution that went into CSI on tuesday in my real account. I'm so proud of my little bambino. And no, I don't want to give it back, thank you very much!

    I went into my account today to see how many shares my 2%/1%/2% (how I split the 5% of 5%) I actually bought. The 3+ shares of S didn't even register as being more than zero%, even going out 2 decimal places! . I'm a heck of a risk-taker, aren't I? It may take me several more pp before I can start playing with the < 1% method, at this rate.

    I've got even better news for you my dear wonderful sister.

    On Friday I saw a patient who had "Tri Care" and he said that means all the care he gets through the Veteran's Administration is TOTALLY FREE. So if a soldier dies while in service; his young wife is not abandoned and left to suffer. She has 'Tri Care' - just the same as if that soldier had served 20+ plus years and retired from the service.

    I'll write a letter on behalf of our 'loved one' and PM it if you need it.

    Money is not a problem - I repeat - her care is totally free.

    Hi Steady. Thanks for the info. She has had Tricare the past 20+ years-due to the widow thing. She had been going to the VA for about 15 years prior to 2000. Problem is she says back in 2000 the VA told her no more room at the VA inn since she wasn't active duty (she is a vet herself too, not just a widow). It's time for her to go back to the VA and check out the access situation, it definitely sounds like. I may have to make a trip down there this spring before hurricane season and force the issue (and a couple other issues too), she's good at not moving on things she needs to do for herself. Will see if she moves anytime soon on the other info I gave her recently. Will keep you posted on developments. I'll keep pushing her from here in the meantime.
