    Interesting indeed.

    I guess there are far more folks doing ETFís these days than regular traders doing the actual stocks.

    Thanks for those charts.

    Thatís it- Iím chickening out.

    Had a great run up for months. Taking my cash and stepping to the sidelines for a breather.

    Going 70% G, 15% F, and then 5/5/5 into CSI.

    Well, Monday was officially my last day, after 32 years of service.

    I slept in yesterday, and again today.

    Tomorrow I think I will.... sleep in and play with the dog.
