    Don't Watch Mildred

    If you have much money invested in the stock market, for the sake of your sanity, don't watch today's news.

    Too late. I woke up this morning to see the market pass below the minus 1000 point. But I could see huge volatility too and it was obvious there was some vigorous buying in addition to the heavy sell off so we have decided to just sit tight and ride it out.
    Only the mediocre are always at their best.

    If your really believe in the values, don't put important money into gambling, go U.S.--bonds.

    The lowest interest paid on a loan anywhere. Get a $25.00 bond that you paid $18.00 for and it takes seven years to mature for that $7.00 in interest.

    I have bought bonds.

    The biggest problem with the bonds is that they barely keep up with inflation, if at all. Your choice is to either gamble or watch your money gradually become worth less than it was when you invested it.
