Good morning fellow investors, This is to introduce myself to other members. (that is why it is in the INTRODUCTIONS section! ) I am a babbling baby boomer becoming boring in my quest to accumulate a few rubles with which to retire at about 60 or so. 10 years yet. I started my investment career about 18 years ago but only became serious 4 years ago. My portfolio is modest by many peoples standard - just over $1m or so. I encourage any young person not to waste time like I did. I have 3 offspring - 2 in their late 20s and one at 17. I have a supportive wife too, lucky for me - she suffers a lot. I am currently aiming to see a bit more of the world before the men in white coats turn up. Am trying to find a way to retain all my investments and trip around a bit and put food on the table - all at the same time. Any suggestions welcomed.
