Toenail Polish and Investments

My 3 year old son has recently become potty trained.

Tonight, at one point he told us he needed to go potty and ran to the bathroom. Hubby followed along to see if he needed any help.

Trevor announced that he had to poop, so hubby left him to sit on the potty for a while. We were watching the baseball game and forgot all about Trevor, until I suddenly realized it was really quiet.

I ran to the bathroom to see what he had gotten into. He was sitting on the toilet painting his toenails. No shit, I took pictures.

He had the left foot done and was working on the right. He had seen me do my toenails the night before and right now he's into doing everything mommy does.

I guess I should draw a line somewhere though!

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would have $33.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you would have $0.00 today.

But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer and then turned in the aluminum cans for a recycling refund, you would have received $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. It is called the 401-Keg.

Hey Christina, I have some of those shares... different names, same results!!!! perhaps I'll try the beer solution.
BTW I didn't get your email please try again.

Don't discard or sell your shares. They will come back, even Lehman Brothers, I hope. I don't have any shares in that firm, but I saw where they were going to benefit from the bailout.

I added the cake recipe to the latest posting. Enjoy.

Congrats to Trevor on successful potty-training. High five lil dude. Oh and I gotta say, his paint job on his toenails is much better than I could have done, so kudos on that, as well.

The investment plan is a good idea and I fully plan in taking that up. Makes much more sense than the other options.

Where's the enrollment form? I gotta get in that plan.

Yeah, it's time to draw the line. Lock up the liquor cabinet, too.

Great minds run together.
