Wise Investment Advice......

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock a few years ago, it would now be worth $19.00.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1000.00.

With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

If you had purchased $1000 of Delta Air Lines stock you would have $36.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all
the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, You
would have had $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink
heavily and recycle.

It's called the 401-Keg Plan.....


I'm not retiring from life… just a job.

If you pee in the compost pile you get the added benefit of free high nitrogen fertilizer.

As Ben Franklin said-

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

-In moderation of course.
