Hello. I mostly lurk but do post once in a while.
I just want to say hi and thank everyone for the sharing of investment (and other) advice, not to mention the entertaining posts and interesting stories about your lives.
I came over two decades ago to the US and I was a blank slate regarding investing (and almost everything else). When I was growing up in the Philippines, most people invested in land or gold and diamond jewelry. (Shoes don't really keep their value.
I've spent most of my time in the US surviving--going to school, getting and keeping a series of jobs, seeking and finally getting a green card, and last year attaining citizenship.
So, I was and (actually still am) financially naive regarding investments, and I truly value the investment education I get here.
Thanks and warm regards to all.
