Thank You Party Goers …. Office Hours … Our most popular video post ever coming this Wednesday!

We did the no rain dance…. but forgot to do our no Wind dance… go figure…

Who would of thought a cold front would blow through with steady 25+ mph winds that gusted even higher. Yes those were whitecaps on the lake adjoining our venue.

Just like we pivot in life, investing and many other areas … a quick move from outside the huge backyard to the inside made for a great venue. It was an easy decision as upon entrance we saw the caterers literally chasing down a wind blown bounding high-top, not to mention the front door would not open due to the wind gusting through the entrance to the back yard which we hoped to keep open — digressing!

We knew the house could hold us all, but had no idea how hard it would be to visit with everyone as we all scattered among the various rooms.  Sorry if we did not get to chat very long.

Thanks to all for your time and drive to our venue, especially those that came from far, some VERY far and driving overnight to get there !

Thanks SO MUCH!

Office Hours

We will be closing early Wednesday and will not be in the office on Friday of this Thanksgiving week!

Of course we always peek at our electronic tethers – Someone could have an emergency and we are glad to be there!

We will air the video again this Wednesday …. It’s uncut, un-scripted, and un-forgiving to the producer !

Enjoy …. Happy Thanksgiving (a little early).

Our Most Popular Video Ever – Happy Thanksgiving – Giving Thanks

Sometimes the best efforts turn out bad, and sometimes they just turn out darn funny. A few Thanksgivings ago, the latter occurred.

For a guaranteed chuckle …2 minutes of fun….the 1.45 minute mark is where patience is lost….

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

 

Giving Thanks

As mentioned in our Monday post, I have a special reason to be thankful. Last year an injury in my neck made the Holiday season less than spectacular.  Not only was the conference mentioned, tough to make for the day, the 20th Annual Holiday Party, just a few days later – same as last year, ended with extreme pain in my arm from just shaking hands. With major surgery an option, a full recovery without, is more reason for Thanks!

This year, a special Thanks, and with a vivid memory of last…. Thanks for just being 100% Healthy and Happy! (Sometimes it is easy to forget how just feeling normal is good!)

Happy Thanksgiving and start to the Holidays !

Happy Thanksgiving, (Family Video) AND Bloopers Video (Funny)

Happy Thanksgiving !!!

After several takes, my great idea of a neat family video was complete, however it is highly likely you may like the blooper video more.

Final product (29 seconds), and if you want a real laugh (REALLY, IT’S FUNNY) … and how I live, watch the funny blooper (90 seconds) …. yaa yaa I even get bunny ears, multiple times !!

My bet is the blooper gets MANY more views !

Happy Hanukkah & Thanksgiving … Unique Short Season = Shoppers Delight … RSVP Reminder

The year 2013 will go down in the history books as having many unique characteristics, much of which we will discuss in coming weeks, as the Holiday Season arrives, the uniqueness shines.

Happy Hanukkah and Thanksgiving

Tomorrow garners a unique challenge for some as the calendar welcomes both very special days at once. It appears the next possible crossover could occur in 2070 or 2165, so enjoy the unique holiday. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah!

One Less Week of Holidays = shoppers delight

This year sports an unusually short holiday season as the calendar has also shortened the retailer holiday shopping season by almost a week. Given we are nerds, and constantly follow retailers reports during this time for economic and capital market data points. We are happy to announce while our season will be shorter, prices have been marked down ALREADY and look to continue throughout the season! Most retailers are having to drop prices to push sales, slightly challenging to us as investors ….Great News As Shoppers!

The Ultimate Compliment, Yes Our Writings are ALL Original ! Janet Welcome Aboard

A recent question has occurred repeatedly that might offend some, but we take it as the ultimate compliment.

Do You Write All of Your Articles Originally?

YES WE DO … 100%, they are ALL original, mistakes and all. There are tons of services that provide terrific articles ghost written for advisors, but we have chosen to give you our original thoughts. It is very time-consuming and we sometimes get writers block (not lately) but being asked this question let’s us know we may be doing a pretty good job.  Thank You! 100% Original

We enjoy sharing with you our thoughts, personal events, and if necessary a means to help calm in a time of crisis.  Being numbers folks, words are not always easy, and yes mistakes happen frequently, but we would not want it any other way. Thanks for the flattering question!!

Janet Yellen is Confirmed

Yesterday, unsurprisingly, the senate banking committee confirmed our new FED chairwoman, Janet Yellen. While Big Ben had it extremely tough in the first few innings of his term (07-09) the rest of his term has been spent adding stimulus.  Janet, your term will be remembered, at least as of right now, as the great unwind, as the stimulus is extracted. Good Luck, we look forward to analyzing, criticizing, and reviewing your every word  over the next years.

Ahhh…but that is next year, and today is a Friday, going into a weekend that bookmarks an abbreviated work week, as most of the country celebrates Thanksgiving next week.

My family will celebrate tomorrow as the geographic challenges abound and other families get the actual day.  Take time to spend with those special in your life.  It seems like only yesterday we were Welcoming in 2013!

Have a Great Day and a Super Weekend!

Thanksgiving…Being thankful for what we have

It’s hard to be 100% thankful for all that we have as a luxury once tasted easily becomes a necessity, pushing many of  the basics to the back of importance.

We could all have or be something a little more, present party included for sure….however, Thanksgiving is a time of the year for giving thanks for what we DO have and sharing with those friends and family around us.

While I want a higher market, we have a pretty good market….Thankfully

I want a faster growing economy, but we have one that is not falling apart….Thankfully

I have wonderful friends and business acquaintances (maybe even reading this right now) and a terrific family…Thankfully

Using myself as an example, you get the point…Hopefully we can all be thankful this Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Ok, you knew I could not be this serious for an entire post…Cathy the office manager here at the office is thankful she has tomorrow off, as does the entire office on Friday..haha

Be Safe and Happy Thanksgiving again!

As Expected, Zagger Negative Super Committee Meeting Thoughts

Just as promised in our most recent post of weekly positives, the Super Committee Zaggers came out in full force. With a Holiday shortened week, many have already headed to the comfort of their sofa’s to give thanks and spend time with their families.

We have some terrific end of year tax related information to share with you and even had a few items on deck for your perusal. On second thought, rather than complicate your Holiday week, we decided to go light in content, especially given last week’s heavy information.

So for a few days, take time to spend it with those most important in your life and forget about this silly sailboat market that acts like a ship without a rudder. We have your back, take a rest, and enjoy, you have earned it.

Gobble Gobble!
