Thought for the day, plus some posts on the Stock Market, Finance, Politics, and Life!
“True humility is intelligent self-respect which keeps us from thinking too highly or too meanly of ourselves. It makes us modest by reminding us how far we have come short of what we can be.” ~ Ralph W Sockman
A good article about how many people are slaves to their jobs, just so they can buy stuff. Learn to live frugally!

The S&P hit another new all time intraday high this past Thursday 5/25/17 of 2418.71 (see chart below). This market is unstoppable! I bought VB on Monday, but it stopped out yesterday for only a measly +.21% gain. I'm glad I don't count on trading for income! Two of my investments Vanguard Dividend Growth Fund (VDIGX) and Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund Admiral Shares (VTSAX) hit a new all time high this week, so that makes me feel good since most of my money are in mutual fund investments. My other stock investments are between -.14% to -1.97% from their highs. Even my bond fund Vanguard Intermediate-Term Investment-Grade Fund Admiral Shares (VFIDX) is -.3.45% from its high. I think everyone should be feeling good about their investments right now. If you're not, better make some changes in what you're holding. Even though I only rely on most of my investments for income from dividends and capital gains, it just makes you feel better to see their principle grow and your net worth increase.

“If you love what you do and are willing to do what it takes, it’s within your reach. And it’ll be worth every minute you spend alone at night, thinking and thinking about what it is you want to design or build. It’ll be worth it, I promise.” ~Steve Wozniak
