The markets have been marvelous. Not a short in sight for me. Glad to see that you've made some money out of all the panic. We're overbought now but I'm still not going to short because there's too much money flying around and they're talking about the ECB chucking even more into the ring. You can see some of them on the iii board right in the doo dah and they're just hoping and praying this goes down to previous lows. Should have been buying at the lows, not selling.
Looks like Jax is doing well for himself. House in the suburbs and a flat on the harbour. Can't be bad. No wonder all those ladies are after him. They'll lighten his wallet a bit. lol
Looks like we're in for some snow up here tonight. It's been cold and frosty evry night for the last couple of weeks. My heating bills are going through the roof. Mind you, I have the heating on for my seedlings so that doesn't help the bills. lol Still, I'll have a lovely crop of bedding plants and veg this year. All grown by me.
Jim Cramer said that AstraZeneca plc (ADR) is in the midst of a major change and it has a nice dividend yield. It is in a much better position than Juno Therapeutics Inc
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Those longs came in handy. lol
I was livid with England today. To be so much in control and then nearly throw it away at the end was just amateurish. I was just thinking how improved England wre under this new manager and then they just fell apart.
If you haven't seen the X files yet....a must see. So funny.
Gary, there is a thread titled "Splash" you should respond to. You and vette67 are 2 message board clowns that haven't chimed in on that thread yet.
6 degrees and windy, not going out if I can help it, a day for slobbing in front of the TV, lap up some rugby (a decent win for Wales last night!), check out the football scores and eat comfort food. Winter is no fun her.
Happy with shares for now, buys all going well, and gaining for the last two weeks, even if it has been a bit choppy thanks to Boris and his career-ending Brexit gambit?
Got our lovely auditors in for the next 4 weeks, so will be happy to still have my job at the end of it - had to take so many liberties balancing year end accounts, they are bound to pick holes in it. Might have to feign madness and sing at them if the going gets too tough.
Anything interesting going on with you guys? Wish I could find some inspiration for you here, but will be watching Dumb and Dumber for safe belly laughs - got it for a fiver on iTunes download - bargain!
Cameron Will go , he is coming unstuck and he made a bad deal with the EU, he knows it but Do the people see it, that is the question , those on the ball know what is coming NWO for Europe is closer than u think
I know, and still the Police force release stuff saying "yes, but...." and magazine for ex-police retirees praised them saying that despite Hillsborough, they did a good job and should be proud" - not the brightest thing to say!
Prince, Victoria Wood added to our list since the last post - and the BBC confirmed our suspicions Moon, there ARE more celebrities popping off then ever before - so far 2016 has seen as many obituaries as 2014 & 15 put together, however, it is not all that strange in a way, as all these folks came to the for several decades ago, and a few years back, only Hollywood actors, politicians nad top military brass were really known by the masses, whereas now, we are saturated with famous people from all walks of life, who are now entering their 60's, 70's and 80's, so I guess we have to get used to more of it happening.
Were you wanting Man Utd to lose today? lolol - didn't happen, but I heard a few Utd supporters wishing Leicester would win it at Old Trafford, particularly with Schmeichel in goal. What a fairy story though, in decades to come, people will look back on the history of Football, with Dele Ali in the studio in his '70's saying, yes it really did happen!
Loving the 3D movies Moon, a whole new perspective on some old favourites, but be careful if you invest in a 4k player, both me and my brother got caught out. They were titled "4k and upscaling" but that meant they didn't play Ultra HD blurays which are genuinely 4 times the definition of blurays. I was lucky that when my first disc came down, I was within the 28 days consumer rights period, and could get my player swapped, especially as I bought locally through the JEC. My brother used Amazon and he is now stuck with his. But boy the difference is utterly amazing - watched Exodus and it was like I could touch them such was the clarity, deeper darks, more colourful colours, wow! Bit limited on choice at the mo, but got The Revenant on order from USA as all discs are region-free
Fantasy Savant, what the weight requirement to be able to join your National Fat Boys Club?
I watched a lot of it, but are you pleased you might be getting Mourinho instead of Van Gaal? Not sure he is Man Utd type of manager. Rashford gives hope for the England Euro's cause, but not sure about this Rooney midfield love-in - he plays a lot of sideways balls and reminded me of Ray Wilkins in that position, who was nicknamed "the crab" as a result of playing like that. at least you have a cup in the cupboard!. Chris Smalling - Englands main defender at the Euro's? Hope taken away again lol.
Watched Transendence French bluray today as it is the only 3d version - happy that you can choose English audio and no subtitles - took a risk ordering that from French Amazon, but worked out beautifully!
Chucking it down here today - no summer yet or anytime soon - must get away again!
Definitely no grass in our garden - it was all gravelled over before we arrived and a major selling point lol. Wouldn't mind that fake grass as it looks very realistic now, but can't be bothered spending the amount needed to cover our area, more expensive than I realised. No mowing, no bugs, no pollen - win, win, win lolol.
Have a listen to "Cake By The Ocean" by DNCE Moon - let me know what you think ;-) - best new song I'd heard in a while, much better than ABC starting up again, kept hearing the Zimmerframe creaking in the background!
