Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

---IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES

T'day was a good day out in the boonies---we found a dozen or so cows that should have been off so we booed them a little and started them off at a dead run. While booing them I ran a few meters and got my feet tangled up and did a header. Glad no one out there SAW that because I sure felt stupid.

Things looked gloomy on the stock market this morning but things have picked up and look a little better this afternoon---I'm telling you AIG is a good buy today....Sorry not good enough for me to risk any money on it though. Inklings will be happy with that---MAYBE---but when AIG gets back to full value we'll all say I wish I'd a done what Dee Ice Hole said a few years ago---I could retiure a millionaire. YUP---NO GUTS---NO GLORY. No matter how you cut it.

So you're saying that I shouldn't feel bad that I lost 20% this quarter? I got my 401k reports in the mail yesterday. :)

I didn't move my money because I figure that I am still buying stuff, only it is now cheaper. I am confident the market will recover over the years. I still have about a decade before I retire, and longer yet before I have to take the money out.

My husband said that he wishes he had money to invest in the stock market. Me, too.. but we don't. :)
