Try explaining that to the gay community.

My best friend is gay and the differences between he and I are why we've been best friends for over 20 years.

There's no need to complicate, our time is short..

In gypsy culture, I think it's a matriarchal society. You know, the Golden Rule: She who has the gold, rules.
Please consider adopting a rescue animal. So very many need a furr-ever home and someone to love them! And if we all spay/neuter our pets there won't be an overpopulation to put to death.

At least he didn't ask her to "shoot a Yankee"...

LOL - my male S.O. has far less risk tolerance than I do - really, almost none.

So his money isn't growing and mine is. I keep nagging him but although he is really smart and understands the whole thing, good at the math etc., he keeps wanting total security. Nice, but no longer a good bet. So he makes 2-3% on his money and frets, and I make 5% and up, and just watch it carefully.

There always have to be outliers to make the average work
