Can you believe it's already the end of April? Of course, New Years does seem like an eternity ago, doesn't it?
Anyway, getting back to my recent question: A few people were able to dig up the team who won swimming's recent national championship. And that team was none other than the powerful Curl-Burke Swim Club! Now, why do I care?
Because my kids are on that team and I'm damn proud of it!
Really, the nerve of you people, not knowing the exact comings and goings of my life! (It should be noted, of course, that my girls, being 10 and 12, had as much association with the kids who actually swam at the Nationals as the man on the Moon. But, hey, they all wear the same swim cap, baby!)
Sick of swimming stories? Oh, don't worry, it'll get a lot worse once the long-course season cranks up! Until then, send any and all to
firstname.lastname@example.org. A special pass to the top of my queue if you can tell me how many world-record holders Curl-Burke has on the roster.

Mr. Smith: I know
is a little fuddy-duddy, but the earnings per share and the price-earnings ratio seem OK (my broker says those things are irrelevant). May I know your technical opinion?
No Saving Grace Here
: This stock looks extremely interesting: It has lost almost 90% from the peak, but the business shows no signs of deterioration -- can the chart help in any way?
