  1. This was the second time this week we were all supposed to die yet nothing but some rain. Anyone who’s 30 or older ever remember school being canceled because of a thunderstorm?!
  2. I put in what I’m willing to lose. Not trying to get rich quick, I’m trying to do what little I can to make a point. Our vote doesn’t matter anymore but our money does. HOLDING!
  3. Lucky Brand Jeans. They look good and feel almost like pajamas. Should run about $50. I always get them from Steinmart but I’m sure places like Kohl’s or TJ Max and the like may have them too.
  4. Yeah I get that for sure. But I’m at 160% return on Tesla right now. And Tesla wasn’t added to the S&P here until recently. But ARK had ETF’s that had it. I had ARKK for a bit but sold it to put more directly into TSLA. While a great ETF, I’m glad I made that move.
  5. I was about 3 months “late” to the game with TSLA...once I realized Tesla was legit and the mainstream finance guys hadn’t caught on yet, I had a limited time to get all the shares I could, which wasn’t much given the stock price and my income but I managed to get 7 shares before the split announcement. The first share I bought was $814 pre split. And that stung. $814 would go a longer way with a cheaper stock right? But I held to my convictions and the future outlook of this company. Fast forward to today, I’ve continued to add to my shares as I can. Just incredible to see my first share was
  6. Dave, 80% of Financial guys are taught to sell. You need to find that 20% who actually teach. If you meet with a guy and you walk out not knowing more than when you came in, that’s a sure sign to not use them. A good finance guy will teach you investing and different options to consider and then you’ll have the knowledge to tell him what you want done with YOUR money. Your ROI will be the main indicator of how well your investments are doing and make sure you factor in your risk tolerance. The less risky you are the lower your ROI will be. The more aggressive, the more volatile your account
  7. I started back in March. Everything was so artificially low that you could have thrown a dart on a stock wall and make money off that investment. I’ve learned a lot over these last several months. Wish I knew more, but at the end of the day nobody knows how a stock will actually behave. My big winnners so far have been TSLA, WKHS and PLNHF. I’ve owned several other stocks but I sold out of them, most times after making profit, to buy more TSLA.
  8. I’m not an antivaxer and this vaccine concerns me. We’ve NEVER had a successful coronavirus vaccine. This is also the first vaccine that alters your DNA. Apparently it’s only good for a few months and it’s a 2 step vaccine. Maybe it’s safe. I hope so. A lot of brilliant minds have been on this but the only thing they can’t factor into their research is time. Who knows what’s the long term consequences of this vaccine will be? Also if you have side effects, or long term consequences you can’t sue the vaccine manufacturer...same is true for all of them. I’m skeptical.
  9. Checking in with you Steel...how’d you do today? We are still praying!
  10. I am praying for you Steel. Hang in there. May not happen on your timeline but you’ll get better soon! Sometimes covid is Two steps forward and one step back!
  11. Yes we did. It was beautiful! River wasn’t too crowded either so was very enjoyable. I wanted to find the tunnel. I thought we’d see it from the river but finding out now that we saw the back side of what I wanted to see and would have to have hiked to see the other side of it. So Ill know for next time!
  12. Well, I'm from Memphis..so anytime we can escape here is worth of being called a vacation, lol. Been so drained from doing the daily covid grind of working, watching kids while working, and being unable to do much. Wife and a couple friends of ours took Friday off and loaded up the Kayaks and drove out to an Air BNB around Kingsdon Springs. It was so refreshing! Thats a beautiful little area even though it takes 20 minutes to get on I-40 when as the crow flies its only a mile away haha. Drove by Royal Range...what a spectacle that place is! Friday night we ate at Tupelo Honey...fantastic me
  13. I'd put a low powered scope on it. Something like a 4x, 2-7x or at most a 3-9x. With a 30-30, ballistically, anything more than that would be far out perform the round you are firing. I have red dots on my AR's and anything over 100 yards just "feels" far even with my fairly young eyes. You also need to look cool when you are hunting, and a scope on a 30-30 just seems right.
  14. I survived the virus! Tested positive 2 weeks going after hanging out with family members from out of town. 70% of us all got the virus as a result and nobody was symptomatic at the time of transmission. Two of the 3 that didn't get the virus had the virus earlier this year before it was popular....so, my thoughts...yes, this is super highly transferable. More so than the flu. Secondly, for the two that didn't get it, its more anecdotal evidence that once you have this, you do build up some immunities to it (antibodies and/or T-Cells). Thirdly, kids get it but they don't even skip a beat.
