Re: Too Old To Retire "Young"

It seems to me that your caretaker problem and your career problem are actually the same thing, the inability to draw boundaries. It is okay to say no sometimes. Who are you? Wonder woman? If you simply stated what you will and won't do or what you can and cannot do and follow through by not doing i...

Four bags of almond flour and some spinach. Are you trying to get a kidney stone? Go easy on those oxalates.

Re: Tomatoe's tomatoes

Do you feel like a stick-in-the-mud if you clean all day? Is there a way to make it fun? Talk to to a friend on the phone, have some wine, listen to music, books etc?

How many trades this year so far?
30 buys and 18 sales. Most of the portfolio is long term. I'm trading with under 0.5% of it, usually less, and only when I feel like it. I want to improve my skill though, so practice.

I want to be done in five years. I believe that with 500K, a paid off house and SS and this pension, we can retire somewhere in America. Where is the question.
We have reached a milestone - $500K in money.

Re: Best Productivity Boosting Furniture/Computers/Tactics?

The classic response is the Pareto principle. Find the 20% of activities which are the most productive and do more of those. Find the 20% of activities which are the biggest waste of time and do less of those. Know your priorities and ask your boss what her priorities are for your job. Find the bott...

What kind of cheese is the moon made out of?

Folklore holds that the moon is made of green(meaning not aged) cheese. If you believed that it would lead you down a path of inquiry that is just pain misguided. Like is it cheddar or mozzarella? Society has much wisdom, cliches, advice and lore passed on from one person to next. Some are great. Ot...

Re: Investments Trade Log

Added to JCAP @18.82. It's damned cheap for a company that has averaged 103.1% compound annual revenue growth for the last 3 years. Established new long put position on SMH, added to long put position on XBI, all expiring Jan 2021. So why those particular industries? I know you are a bear, but biote...

Added to UNH @221.79.

On a side note, I've decided that zero commissions means that with no fees to make small trade size uneconomical the compounding effect is more important. It is advantageous to buy more often.

Re: China/Ukraine request

I think Biden should be investigated. It sounds like he got a prosecutor off his son's back. That doesn't mean that Trump should call in favors against a political rivel. They both look bad.

Arguably switching careers every 2 years would be more ERE in that you would gain a wider variety of skills.
