I have been investing in everyway from first buying my first stock (Carboline) in about 1985, joining invetment clubs (ugh !) , hiring a stock broket (ugh!, ugh!) to deciding I could do it myself and better. I bought J&J during the Tylenol scare, $10,000 and later that year in December another $10,000. Let it ride and now have plenty for retirement and more. I am a WW11 veteran, infantry, served with honor and am now retired at 86 years old.
