    They have to find a way to make this Pro Bowl mean something. But gonna watch it anyway.

    Cleveland is a mess right now. Plus did you catch Belichick today ? A little arrogant and now is doing his own experiments?

    I think after the Super Bowl the Commish is going to hand out a severe fine here. Draft picks and i am hoping a one year suspension for the head coach. This is worse then what New Orleans did a couple of years ago.

    Long overdue for this guy !!

    My bunker can survive a year !! We have an AWD Highlander as well. But the Subaru is the best getting through snow.

    But no need to leave the house. Just gonna catch up on some reading . If the wife pushes me for a gallon of milk i live less then a mile away. Plus we have errands to do in the morning, although no need to hit the store. Have a full size freezer downstairs always stocked when meats go on sale..

    We use that machine to suck the air out and we buy in bulk. Never know when the daughter and boy friend show up to eat!! Double coupon days are the best...

    Actually my meds are more of a concern...lol

    Pro Bowl time !! I heard Corzine is in charge of watching the footballs..

    Were getting ready for a possible heavy snowfall in the next few days. Going into the local ShopRite you would think the end of the world is coming.

    Can't get into a massive parking lot, people fighting for a spot. I am just going to wait for the snow to start, then take my Subaru out for a spin and have no lines. That's if i think i REALLY need anything for a day...lol..

    Here is a quote from an article on another site...

    “In 30+ years in and around Wall Street, I’ve never seen so many economic, social and political factors (here and abroad) converging at one time! What we would have consider tremendous volatility through much of my 30 years, is now just a “normal” day. What scares me the most of this fact is, how many more people will be “sucked” in to thinking they can trade it and profit. Yours truly was foolish enough to think for far too many years he could beat the market. Scars, mental anguish and the wife keeping divorce attorney’s numbers handy, is pretty much what I’ve to show for it."

    Kinda sums up my feelings right about now...

    I might be wrong here, but i believe our group doesn't really have many 1% ers in it. We are a blue collar type of club. Personally i like flying below the radar !!

    As i have posted many times the FED was hoping that lower oil prices would at least jump start the economy. Since it hasn't ( and won't) let's see what happens next .

    They also thought keeping interest rates lower would also.. Now if only they didn't play around with the rules the markets and economy would have been through the rough patch by now.

    IMO they just made matters worse.

    I think we understand your investment strategy by now. Let it sit and bake ??

    Others have a different take. Appreciate your opinion on the metals but some of us do sell it when the price is right. $1800 was a decent time to sell some of mine.

    You are right about gold bugs. Some won't sell no matter what. But your wrong about not being able to make a profit on gold or silver.

    Just as you are wrong about making money on a 3x leverage fund. Let's see in 5 years if you feel the same way about the metals.

    I have done pretty well on my 3x leverage plays in my RLP. So i have to disagree with you . I might add it has included NUGT and a few on silver as well since Jan. Shorting the market wasn't a bad play on my part either...

    I am not a baker type :)

    Nothing is reliable in the future, nothing !!

    Well Thanks for the investment strategy. However i would appreciate if we can keep from posting anything negative towards the mock portfolio.. This is what started an uproar a few years ago.

    Were all here to help one another aren't we ??

    Now as far as taking your chances on the market winds? I really don't see the difference besides the risk . Some are conservative, some are risk takers..

    I felt we were going to have a sell off at the beginning of the year and it occurred. Could of bailed out but i stayed because i feel more pain is ahead.

    That's my take on the winds..
