    100 players is going to be tough. Unless you already have an idea how to get them to commit ?

    Need to spread the word somehow..

    So whose the bookie? I mean bookkeeper?

    Actually i appreciate it. The core group here is shrinking so new blood is always welcomed. I guess my offer to the author who talks about DGI decided not to stop by.

    Life moves on, but ANYTHING to get more viewers here the better. I saw the link but those guys are kinda different. Actually one guy PM'D me about two weeks ago to make a positive comment about my posts on WSB.

    So all feel comfortable dropping links all over as it seems EA is on a money making mission :)

    Run with the idea...Please lay out your potential rules... But we then need to spread the word. Are you suggesting that we do our own investing or as a team?

    Since i do not write articles then everyone needs to post some comments on other threads. But this is your idea so explain the rules to the group.

    Bit i am in as well , JBT , i believe, also gave it the green light .

    I can set up a new chapter solely for this as well!! Define "prepared" ??

    Well since i switched over to Time Warner they "forgot" to tell me that my alarm system in my home would not work anymore.

    Someone was suppose to ask that question prior to any work or conversion. Hence i was on the phone immediately with the head honcho's at TW..

    It cost us $250 to have my alarm company now install a cellular system which i conveniently had TW pay for. Now they want to send over a tech so that they can connect my alarm to "their" system. I told them too late since i now had holes in the wall already and the cellular was installed.

    Didn't have to yell, just remind them i am a Board member of 700 homes and we have a special bulk rate with them... Guy even offered to turn up my speed to like 30 mgs for free for a year.

    Hey, i took it all. But the wife was annoyed that they would only credit our account for the $250 , not reimburse us by check. So i told them to ante up another 50 bucks to cover the holes i really did not need if they did their work the proper way from the start.

    I had at least 4 different crews in my house and not one mentioned ANYTHING with my alarm. But the service seems much better as i have not been thrown off once yet ( just jinxed myself i am sure)

    JBT is the one who set this up for us. I am sure ALL would start over in June with a second one..What's the downside??

    But 2k in prize money ? Humm.....Like to hear more about that one!!

    You see who comments here, so not sure even half still look at this anymore..I could be wrong..We would need new blood!!

    I know my limitations, so i figure have an ETF that exposes me to all the areas..

    I think people like me are better served investing like that. I will leave it up to you chart readers to buy and sell..

    I would love to be like JBT... Buy and hold.... Or open a position in Vanguard's Wellington fund. Use to own that over 30 years ago. Pretty steady and i really don't see rates going very high . In fact i see deflation happening first and sticking around for a while.

    Low oil prices proved to me people won't spend that extra cash! That was an important lesson to learn yet i don't think many saw it...

    Been doing it to the metals it seems since the FED came into existence. Big question is can they do it forever ?

    Serious question because no one cares. Just look at the patsy who is getting creamed for supposedly causing that flash crash..

    Sure, one guy did it !! (Wink wink)

    That is why i am seriously considering cutting down on my % of metals. Million dollar question is where to invest it !

    As posted above this is a pathetic year according to History's stats... So what is going to happen AFTER the election??
