On the Road – A Vacation – Finally –

Regular readers know we had a fairly busy summer planned, especially with the Tennis circuit going –

What we did not know is just how busy it would be with a few successful Tennis Tournaments – So a few successes lead to more tournament opportunities – which in turn led to NO Vacation — SO FAR-

Vacation Today and Next WeekAirplane

As you read this, the 13 year old and myself will have landed late last night in a neighboring state to catch up with the rest of the family, including a sibling and parent — who have been in said state basking in the coolness for some time now!

All good !

Speaking of Travels, the Capone family are wheels up tomorrow for a 10 + hour journey to the beach for the week with a very pregnant Mrs. Capone and two boys that are sure to make the trip memorable!

Good Luck!

Hardware Updatespeed- superhero-534120__340

Early this week the Four Times Faster Hardware arrived – While exposing some slowness in our older machines, we are off to the races.

We will be testing it over the next week as remote is the new norm…

There is a goal of completing several New Vault Update videos … but no promises!!

Enjoy your Friday and your weekend.

Have a Great “Much needed R and R” Day!

International Investing Interview … Flying Solo on a Friday and Next Week … Happy Mother’s Day

This week I had a lengthy interview with a reporter concerning international investing. If the story prints, you will be the first to know!  With a late May expected time frame, we have plenty of room to hit the cutting room floor. Either way, her interview spurred my thinking, so watch out for a post on why we always have international investments.

Happy Friday and Happy Early Mother’s Day

Today I am in the office all by my lonesome. Rich has headed to Florida for a Graduation, and Cathy to South Padre, for a much-needed vacation. Next week will be much of the same, but not to worry Donald ‘The Brain” and I can take care of things, however…we might be a little delayed !

I will leave you with a short post today, being all solo!

Mothers day

To all the Mom’s … Happy Mother’s day, you are all great!

Have a great weekend!

End of Month, Syria, Hampton’s, Long Weekend….Nothing else please!! (PS…Pierce Breaks the Record)

Under normal circumstances, the end of the month presents certain challenges as professional investors “mark up” securities to show better results. Throw in a Syrian conflict (we are watching this closely, so far participants are not showing extreme fear), and absence for many…still at the Hampton’s…..What do we get?

Choppy and non-directional Markets

Stirring all the afore-mentioned items up and blending them together, what we get is random movements. We are carefully taking advantage of certain movements, but only in small portions as there may be larger movements ahead.

Labor Day Weekend Schedule

Today, Cathy is in only for a partial day, and our office will be closed on Monday. I will be working on several great articles for the 2013 Q4 Newsletter over the weekend and on an office-less Monday….But hey that is next week!Labor Day

Enjoy your Friday and your long weekend, if you are receiving one !!

Have a great day!

PS For what it is worth, Pierce our son took only three days in school to do what Sophia our daughter took three years….you got it, a bad smiley face/note from the teacher…oh boy….it’s only the first week !!!!
