Admittedly, I've not kept a careful eye on any investments. Now, that is going to change. I'm going to 'take charge' and with your guidance and what I learn on this site, I hope to begin to build wealth with current balances.

Thanks to many who have posted here. I've been devouring this site for the last 48 hours and look forward to making some valuable contributions...even if it's just a laugh now and then.

Merry Christmas!
Indiana Randy, welcome!

Please start a new thread with your above introduction, and anything else you might want to add, in the "Hi, I Am" part of the forum. If it is posted there, members can get to know you. It's sort of buried in this thread so it might not be noticed, here.
Already we are boldly launched upon the deep; but soon we shall be lost in its unshored, harbourless immensities. - - H. Melville, 1851.

Happily retired since 2009, at age 61. Best years of my life by far!
