I am a retiree who enjoys investing Long-Term. I reside in California. My careers were as an announcer and a U.S. Postal Service clerk. I have stocks plus other investments. I try to be respectful. I look for investment opportunities that are not as well-known as others. If I read something that a Seeking Alpha contributor mentions and it looks attractive for my investment style, then I will buy it, and give credit to the writer. I am more of a support person than a contributor; at my age, I do not need the pressure of deadlines; trying to find solid investments is enough of a challenge. This Bio was edited September 4, 2012.
