  Greetings All, Some years ago, Warren Buffet was asked about his business strategy. “We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful”, he answered.

  Greetings All,   Home. I look at my son-by-marriage…12 years old and 5’9″, already…and I wonder what memories he’ll have of the home his mom and I have created around him.
