Well.............I'm back....kinda.........

Hello again all forum friends. Yes, I have been lurking and in the meantime juggling a lot of things. However, things are calmer now, which is good.

It was either the "did you ever cheat on your partner" poll () or the thread about "Obama wins the Nobel Prize for Peace" () that got me back here. That being said, if I said how I truly feel on either or both threads, I will probably be banned from the forum........

I have two friends who are in what they call "open marriages".........I didn't know those still existed..........

I will post in the future, but the volume will be down. For those of you that think the quality will be greatly improved, you are bound to be disappointed.........

No, we had to do a B/D swith because our parent company decided out of the blue that it would be a good idea to shut down the B/D instead of letting us continue on as a seperate business division, so the scramble was on to find a new home..........

2 and a half months of 60-70 hour weeks later, it is pretty much behind me............and it worked out..........

broker-dealer switch. Every advisor has to be aligned with a borker/dealer of some kind. Our parent company shut ours down, so my choice was to go with Giant Firm (12,000 reps) and play the corproate game, or stay with a small broker-dealer like I was. We stayed with the smaller, more independent firm.......
