My wife and I were already "B" owners and when my company downsized in Feb and let me go it was the greatest day of my career. My lump sum retirement and 401-k money allowed us to buy the stake in Berkshire that we had always dreamed of. I didn't realize how unhappy I was in that corporate rat race. There are no 100% safe investments, but I figure Berk is as close as you can get. Every day is Sunday for us now.
