Have to look at the positive. Market was down 4.6% in one day. But....

3 month change - still up 3.39%
6 month change - still up 10.07%

Everyone knew the "correction" was coming and here it is. But just focus on long term goals and how well over the last few months/years your funds have done.

Yep! A nice long, slow, steady course and good planning of course. A shot or several of WT or Maker's Mark wouldn't hurt! :lol:

I guess I say I am mostly retired.
If you can easily capture some of the recent profits in your investments, GO for it. DO it!

My Social security went up a whopping 2.2%, but with the increase in Medicare premium, I'm only getting an extra 33¢ a day. Of course, I didn't start paying into Social Security until 1962, after obtaining a work permit from the local school board...

The best treatment for "Trickle Down" are antibiotics either ceftriaxone or cefixime administered as an injection. You will also be given an antibiotic called azithromycin that is taken in tablet form at the same time.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I’m sure 3 ex’s and kids didn’t help the cause.

Never paid a dime to the exes. :lol: :lol: I did pay child support (happily) for several years back in the 80's. Never paid for anyone's college and never bought a car for anyone. They had to earn their way, just as I did..... I believe that it makes them better adults. The only thing I ever inherited is a cemetery plot in Pontiac, MI.
