  • Under Armour skates past Sochi controversy [View news story]
    How long had they practiced in the suits in question? Sounded like sourer grapes in the first place. Plank and Company are the good guys...glad they weren't punished.

  • How I Retired At 45 [View instapost]
    One must understand...SA is primarily about investing.
    http://bit.ly/14XkOO5

    That is the truth. In the words of Eli himself. Listen for the true words. It's about investing....way over trading....or any spirituality. That said, Eli is a hell of a great guy. He's real, in a true sense of the word.

    So, if your looking for spirituality here at SA....you have to sneak around. Its here. But not overtly. Thus Micheal's having to submit his article as an Instablog. No problem.

    Come to StockTalks for the real spirituality of SA. We are inclusive. If you have actually authored an article here on SA, we won't hold that against you.

    And MLP Trader..."Islamic history". Damn, I need to get away from just Stocktalks and open up to more Contributors. I have often felt that SA has a base spirituality (in spite of itself) that even religion can't touch.

    Namaste

    Ok....is the trout picture in the same location as the shed? Ie, can you step out of your door at home and make a cast? If so....I am seriously jealous.

    Well too bad. (hehe) Our water is gravity fed spring water. It travels through old iron pipes that give it a perfect taste...especially in a pewter or metal cup. (can someone be snooty about their water....?)

    And the heat off a Vermont Castings Defiant wood stove, wafting over a Labrador Retriever, is the best in the world. One of the pure joys of mankind, especially if he has put up his own wood.

    We better stop here before someone tells us we "need to get a room".....haha.

    Really nice to meet you Michael. I look forward to your posts here on SA.

    Cheers,

    Oh yeah....that's an old one. And here in Vermont very apropos. interesting...when I stopped heating with wood...my health started to go downhill. I should go back to heating with wood.....grin

    Like your attitude Michael. And my son's name is Michael too...so that's on your side.

    Cheers. Spring water....?

    As an ol' fart grandfather it is clear to me you had good parents. Too bad that wisdom you were born with, raised with, and developed on your own, will only be past on by articles such as this. You'd have made a great dad. But that would have changed your life...and you might not now be 'retired'.

    That said, wonderful article...with undertones of a true spirituality. I too heated with wood (including an operating day care center, 16 cords a year) for over 40 years. No one can heat with wood that long and not be spiritual. (grin)

    Again, wonderful heart felt article. Thanks for sharing.

    p.s. that's right, you are a fisherman. And God (Universe) does not subtract days from a person's life for days spent fishing. Maybe if you fish enough....you still might have time for kids. hehe

  • The Disturbing Trend In Unemployment  [View instapost]
    One more thing...Polar bear to Black bear....the dad's have to step up. That big discrepancy in unemployment is caused in part by the lack of leadership a father can provide. No dad around puts it all on the mom. Or grandmom. And it is a vicious cycle...

    ....all just the opinion of a friendly bear....grin

    Peace bro....

    Detroit Bear....that is a black bear in your avatar, right? Any meaning other than it is a bear? (grin)

    Reason I can be forward.....I am a 73 year old white guy. But I have a 40 year old African American daughter...by adoption. Not only was she black in Prince George County Maryland in 1969...she had Cerebral Palsy. Two strikes. Hard child to place, even in an African American family.

    Long story short....about time we got over color and into the heart of humanity. But the color issue seems to drag on forever. Not fair. Not by any spiritual standard I know.

    Just want you to know I care. Even if no one else does.

    Namaste,

  • How Short Is Short Term? [View instapost]
    See now REIT, that's where we differ, with all due respect. I used to try to swing or hold, with very bad results. Loss of money, sleep, health, etc. I was/am not good at picking stocks for more than one day. And believe me, I have tried.

    So, "risky" to me was trying to hold overnight. I had to admit I'm no Ocean Man and never will be. Rather, what works for me is simple day trading. Good sleep, improving health, and a growing cash balance. But day trading requires hard work too...you are right in that regard.

    Not trying to persuade you or anyone else to try day trading. It only works for some. But "The harder you work (at anything) the luckier you get"

    Cheers.

    IMO, anything less than one full year is a trader. (I think the IRS feels the same way). Day trading is for one day, with the entry and exit in the same day. ( Holding overnight, even for less than 24 hrs, is a swing trade.). More than one day up to 364 days is all swing.

    Like I said, just my opinion.

    Was very impressed with a recent lotto winner, already well enough off, that simply gave his winnings to charity. I'll see if I can find a link.

    Cheers.
