Eh, I've fallen into that trap before, I'm not putting any more spare change into the market, and this time I really mean it... no matter how good Central Pacific Bank's (CPF) dividend looks...

No chance of a tax refund this year and we'll be paying a good bit up front next month for estimated taxes too. In fact I set money aside from all the rebalancing to pay the rest of 2008's taxes as well. I don't want to have to sell more equities next year for that sort of tax planning.

Yuck. Sorry 'bout that. Oh well. I'll bet you could find quite a bit hidden under the sofa cushions or under the driver's seat in your car (not to mention that handy mayonnaise jar full of change by the door), or you could always sell your whateverthatwas that you didn't really want, on Craigslist...

Thanks for sharing the lovely pics...especially of you and your daughter. But, my mind keeps going to a foo foo drink with an umbrella in it. The only time I ever have a foo foo drink is on the beach.

Bet you thought about us everyday, right?

Nice Brewer. I just returned from a couple of relaxing weeks in Key West with DW and the dogs. I didn't take many pictures but I will look through to see if any are worth posting.

Thanks for posting the pics. Your daughter is really cute. Boy, do I remember the "full meltdown" days. Somehow, they do not seem so bad now though. I miss having a little one around. I can't wait for my grandbaby!

What's the yellow thing in the distance in the last picture. It looks familiar but it's been so long I just can't remember.

sorry!
His posts seem so intelligent that I figured he was a skinny, pasty complexioned guy with brown hair needing a haircut, and big nerdy black glasses and a pocket protector. One of those brilliant computer geek/nerd types who thinks in binary and has never had a date in his life, but has great insights on theoretical math (or the market, here).

But then he told me he isn't a math whiz, and now this photo. Was I ever wrong - - he looks like a normal, successful, potential ER, and with a beautiful daughter, yet!

Heheh, its funny how you get a picture on your head of someone you've never seen. When I was working for a big consulting company almost a decade ago and working on a daily basis with someone across the country, it was a huge shock to find that they looked nothing like what I expected. She had a hispanic last name, but was nordic-looking, no doubt married to a latino.

Oddly enough, Nords looks quite a lot like his avatar in person.
