Hello World!  Today we had a day of thinking and planning.  We made some big decisions and big plans.  We can’t share them just yet because our teacher, Mr. Mendes, and our Principal Ms. Miller, are telling us we have to go through the right “channels” and be “appropriate.”  Hah!  Who knew he was gonna […]

Like many Americans, I have my retirement savings in 401 (k), 403 (b) and other investment accounts, and every once in awhile, I meet with my financial planner to assess performance and make adjustments. “Diversify,” “invest for the long-term” is the mantra.
