    Are there dialysis units on board? If so they could increase drinking, which would increase fundraising, which means more dialysis treatments! Sounds like a great cruise!

    Yes, there are typically 7 to 10 dialysis patients on board along with dialysis machines and the doctors to make it all happen. Most of the fundraising occurs in the evening through raffles and auctions. The last rally was held in 2017 and as of that date, $2.7 million dollars had been raised for kidney dialysis.

    Wow! Thatís a serious fundraiser for a great cause! Here I am making light of the situation thinking a bunch of HD faithfuls are doing their best to reduce the ships inventory of booze. I hope it raises tons for kidney dialysis improvements. The field has come a long way of from where it was even 15 years ago.

    Your thinking is understandable because we HD faithful do enjoy our adult beverages after a long ride. But in that same vein, we are some of the kindest, most generous and helpful people you'll ever meet.

    Saw this article at FedSmith.com and thought it may be of interest to the folks here at TSPTalk. It is titled "Is There a Bubble Brewing in the TSP?" Kinda scary when you think about it, especially when everyone is heading for the exits. Anyway, enjoy the article and feel free to opine if you wish.

    Got this from Briefing.com a few minutes ago.

    [BRIEFING.COM] The major averages are working their way back toward session highs, reinvigorated by a report that a partial trade deal was reached at today's meeting between representatives from China and the U.S. The S&P 500 is up 1.7%.The market has not been bothered by the fact that the Bloomberg report goes on to say that the agreement calls for increased agricultural concessions from China in exchange for some tariff relief. In other words, this "partial deal" does not address any of the core issues. China's Vice Premier Liu He is currently meeting with President Trump, but that meeting is not expected to end before the market closes for the day.
