Gotta simply enjoy the ride when it's good. Nothin wrong with that. Fear drives stress, forget that. Life's too short let's enjoy this blissful moment like it's the greatest bull run of all time...which I believe it shall be.

Most of us have been investors in at least 3 terrible market downturns. Maybe some remember 1974 so they count 4. We know that there will be terrible gut-wrenching days ahead as the market corrects, rebalances, whatever. We all know to have that proper AA.

In light of the above, if FreeBird wants to do a dance every day when his portfolio goes up more than he made during his w***ing days, I say "Let me join in his dance." "Let me not rain on his parade."

One of the seemingly endless gloom & doom articles by Paul B. Farrell, who seems to have disappeared from MarketWatch. Haven't seen him spread a fresh coat of black paint for years.

At this very moment, the Dow is 25,762!!! We might make it to 26,000 sooner than we think.

I am cheering it on because I am near a never-before-seen milestone total for investment plus bank accounts. I'd love to pass that mark before my estimated tax payments are made by EFTPS on Monday (pulling the total back down).

C'mon, Dow!!! You can do it!
