    Surely there's some quite sophisticated analysis going on there, I assure you.

    Yeah, that's what I told my RL Broker back in May, lets wait for the summer doldrums.

    Meanwhile I'm already on the scoreboard with the Virtual Bucks, down .03 10 minutes out. At this rate IT will be ahead by 1% by International Friendship Day.

    Hey Ref, I know we're supposed to read the rules first but I was once told by an old truck driver that you can get a ticket for drafting. Is that how they do it in NY?

    I think they guy I spoke with might have been from New Jersey, he kept talking about front running but I'm not sure if that's the same thing.

    I'm not sure the rules are the same in up in the Northeast but I did hear there was a big accident on 75 south coming out of Indianapolis when some guy in a red Ford Maverick headed for Disney decided to pull out in front of a big truck headed for Birmingham with a load of steel.

    The driver said he had to slam on the brakes just to get out of the way.

    "Democrats never agree on anything, that's why they're Democrats. If they agreed with each other, they'd be Republicans."

    Are you sure about that?

    Comanche 250

    In 1958 Piper introduced a 250-horsepower (186 kW) version using a Lycoming O-540 engine, giving the PA-24-250 Comanche a top cruise speed of 160 kts (185 mph; 298 km/h).

    Most 250s had carbureted Lycoming O-540-AIA5 engines, but a small number were fitted out with fuel-injected versions of the same engine.

    Early Comanche 250s had manually operated flaps and carried 60 US gallons (230 L) of fuel. Auxiliary fuel tanks (90 US gallons (340 L) total) became available in 1961.

    Electrically actuated flaps were made standard with the 1962 model year.

    The aircraft's gross weight was increased from 2,800 pounds to 2,900 pounds in 1961, making the useful load 1,270 pounds.

    The Comanche 250 advertised cruise speeds of 140-157 knots and fuel burns of 10-14 gph (55% and 75% power).

    Prices of new Comanche 250s ranged from $21,250 (1958) to $26,900, which was only $3,000 to $5,000 more expensive than the Comanche 180. Some 2,537 were sold.

    Yeah I knew that, I just forgot. Guess I got wrapped up in all the end of quarter fever with the big boys. That's why I only play with monopoly money. But those other guys...

    Yeah seems I remember a complaint one time when an article about someone appeared on the back cover and folks who knew the subject of the article were insulted. As it turned out however the complainee was informed by the editor of that particular company owned publication that advertises actually paid a premium for placement on the back as that was the number 2 most read location in the publication, so the perceived slight was misplaced. Still, the front page is the front page. Let 'em have their moment of glory in the sun. Its cooler under the cabana anyway.

    I'd be dancing to a different tune for sure if I had only held out a little longer on my massive TMF holding for the Challenge. I had close to 70K which I had accumulated over time chasing the falling knife. I finally decided to cash out this morning to secure my position as the game is up this week only to watch it run up after unloading. I can only imagine how many real bucks are swirling around end of the month, end of the quarter, summer vacation swings into full gear. The Greek vibrations are resonating all around.

    Is Cash King? I think so, at least for now. If you look at the one year chart it has run up significantly in the background.

    Well, I did rebalance incrementally toward Bonds on Friday when the rates peaked intermediately. Is that the same thing do you think? Break that down. I wouldn't want to be charged with timing the market. That would be an offense to capital. Oh No! Can't touch that! Just go with the flow-OOO?

    80% of the 75% who make it to 90 likely don't run out of stuff they think they might need before they run out of time anyway. 20% of the 10% who make it to 95 maybe do but by then if their smart enough to make it that far they will have figured out by then that they don't really need all that stuff anymore.

    Many people criticized Merrick for starting Easy Jet so often. Merrick said, however, "You had to run him about once every ten days or he'd have got so high you couldn't hardly stand to be around him. As long as we were going to run him, we figured we might as well make it count for something."Despite all of the starts, Easy Jet had enough energy to be difficult to handle; in this respect, he was considered high-spirited rather than mean.
