    OR you could sell the vacation home,cut down to 1 mortgage,have your kids pay part or all of their own education,<its called real world>and live a bit more frugal.
    Its kinda hard for most people here to relate to your needs

    I am not pretending to be any smarter,wiser,or better equipped to call a bottom to any market.
    However the FED has already stated any rise in rates will be slow and gradual.
    Still people over react to the least little thing.
    Im not saying there arent problems
    Im saying little things cause great panic.
    BUY QUALITY,TUNE OUT THE NOISE,AND LET CHICKEN LITTLE SCREAM !!

  • Liberty Property Trust Is No Bargain, But Lexington Realty Screams 'I'm Cheap' [View article]
    Brad,

    Nice history lesson on Greenville and surrounding areas.
    As "LABOR FRIENDLY" as Greenville area is,they still lost their number 1 industry,"TEXTILES",back in the late 50's early 60's.
    My Grandpa was a supervisor in textile mills for most of his career.
    Lots of good home values for retirees in the Greenville area.
    While it is "not for me",lots of people live happily there.

    I still have a love affair with San Diego

  • Looking Beyond The Obvious: Critical Thinking And Investment Decisions (Part 1) [View article]
    Who ever thought Sears would fall on hard times ?
    Who ever thought Kodak would fold ?
    With today's health conscious world,where is Mc Donalds headed and or sugary drinks ?
    IBM ?
    Not the powerhouse it once was.
    Even Microsoft has lost some of its shine.
    The "obvious" to me is people are living longer,and the baby boomer generation is aging fast.
    That leads me to the conclusion anything healthcare related should be around as long as I am.
    Same with consumer staples,babies need diapers,people will always buy food.
    Oil,probably will be gone someday,but not before my deathbed.
    Defense spending securities,well with ISIS now a very real worldwide threat,I cant see how they will go away.
    Utilities and telecoms ?
    Surely will outlive me.
    Just thinking out loud.
