Overall:My only losses for the week beyond paper stock losses (cause the market is a roller coaster at the moment) came from straight Calls.  I don't seem to have the luck on those, but, I'll keep experimenting. 

Having said that, I made more money then I lost last week.  Not much more, but hey, it's a positive number.  That's what counts.   Plus the Dividend train just does not stop!

Disclosure: I am/we are long all stocks mentioned.
