Happy dollars: Many for the pancake breakfast: what a win-win-win this was! Great job everyone. Some for no more political ads (couldn’t have come soon enough!):, Scott on another vacation.
50/50 drawing: $756 in pot; Marty Lindemann number was pulled, but no luck. Stay tuned for next week.
Guest Speaker: Dave Caruso, wealth manager at Coastal Capital Group LLC, created a talk for our meeting on November 4th around what turned out to be a “straw man” argument. That is, should we continue to invest our money into a stock market that many say has reached its maximum level of value?
Dave showed us graphs, statistics and lots of math that said on the surface, “DON’T.” Then, he gave us ten minutes of data and charts that took us from a limited current market perspective to a fifty year perspective of the up and downs of the market that has continued to move upward.
Conclusion: We may pause a bit, but look for the market to grow substantially more over the months ahead! Put your money in and be patient.
Joke of the Day: The Value of a Driver's License
A mother is driving her little girl to her friend's house for a play date.
.Mommy ,' the little girl asks, 'how old are you?'
Honey, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age,' the mother replied. 'It's not polite.'
'OK', the little girl says, 'How much do you weigh?'
'Now really,' the mother says, 'those are personal questions and are really none of your business.'
Undaunted, the little girl asks, 'Why did you and Daddy get a divorce?' >'That's enough questions, young lady! Honestly!'
The exasperated mother walks away as the two friends begin to play.
' My Mom won't tell me anything about her,' the little girl says to her friend.
'Well,' says the friend, 'all you need to do is look at her driver's license. It's like a report card, it has everything on it.'
Later that night the little girl says to her mother, 'I know how old you are. You are 32.'
The mother is surprised and asks, 'How did you find that out?
'I also know that you weigh 130 pounds.'
The mother is past surprised and shocked now. 'How in Heaven's name did you find that out?''
And,' the little girl says triumphantly, 'I know why you and daddy got a divorce.'
'Oh really?' the mother asks. 'Why?'
Because you got an F in sex.'
