  • Stay away from bond funds due to lowest rates ever= means it has only 1 direction which will tank the bonds values and chase people out of the funds causing extreme volatility due to lack of liquidity and portfolios being dumped.
    Preferred funds are also at their peek.
    Pimco, Western Assets, have steady stable exchange traded funds, as does Black Rock. Some Blackrock funds are stable and some are head scratchers to why they don't hold up.

    Oh sure that was big news! I haven't heard much about it since. The idea of it is cool but it could easily turn into a Big Brother nightmare.
    3:06 at Long Beach. 1:30 first half split and 1:36 second, about as good as you can leave it all out there.
    I was 38. Trying to go sub 3, I developed bone spurs and hurt so much that my lack of good sense finally occurred to me. I was running 80 miles a week. Way too much.

    That's really fast! I know lots of marathon runners but only 3 that went sub 3 hours. Wow 80 miles a week, I rarely top 40. I think I want to do one more and try to win my age division. But I also golf and don't want to screw my self up so we'll see.
    Two thoughts. One, my beloved wife started me walking with her years ago. Walking with your beloved is fantastic for several reasons not least of which it's exercise appropriate for older folks. Also she bought a stationary recumbent bike we put in the family room to use while watching Democrat Insanity on television.

    My wife and I went on a short run yesterday and we do walks a couple times a week. Fully agree it's great to get out in the air and we seem to talk more during walks which is a good thing.
    Marathon Mike, I must ask what is your marathon P.R. I did too many marathons and long training weeks and developed atrial fibrillation in addition to wearing out the cartilage in my knees. So cut back now while you're still young and healthy. Great Post I just winnered, by the way.

    Thanks ChemE! I'm a software engineer retired. Pretty old but at 62 knees are still good for some reason. I started when I was 43 and my PR was 3:28 at Boston. I ran a 3:35 early this year but have a hip issue that is concerning so I've been doing shorter runs lately. Thanks for the input on marathon running I may be done, we'll see how this hip thing works out. -Mike
    He’s garbage in every way.that is WHY kapernick would fit right in with the cheatriots organization,a classless person playing for a classless organization that has disgrace the sport.good match.LOL
    I like hearing words of encouragement. Seems as though every one is afraid of thier own shadow today. I am at the end of it and am reducing risks any way. As long as the dollar holds I will be fine till the long dirt nap.
    My people are drumb beating gold right now and predicting doom and gloom. Tell me it ain't so bad! They are over reacting right?

    I'm not sure who your people are that they predict currency collapses. There are some signs the global economy slowing down but global recession doesn't seem likely.
