    Wishing everybody a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year

    Do spend some precious time with your loved ones during this holiday season. Enjoy yourselves and just take it easy. It may come to a point in your life that you realize that there are a lot of things in life that are more important than money. The sooner we can realize this fact the better the chance for us to find happiness. Some people always dream that they will win the lotteries, not knowing that some time they may become the most unhappy and miserable people after winning a lottery. Do you know that most the of lotteries winners went broke within a year after they won a lottery? For you to win those BIG lotteries, you will have a better chance if you purchase your lottery tickets in California or Georgia.

    Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a very prosperous New Year!!!


    P.S. If FSC continues to drop, I may be able to grab more at around 9.08 before 2014.

      Just finished Christmas here. Hope all had a good day, and a Happy New Year to come!

    • Happy Holidays to all you guys as well. And may FSC have a very prosperous new year!

    • Nice sentiments wisejman, and wish your family well also for the holidays and upcoming new year. I hope the trading profits continue to roll in. Wish I had listened to you and snapped up some FSFR shares in the low $13 range.

      I think the reason most lottery winners go broke within a few years of winning their millions is that the people most likely to purchase lottery tickets in the first place are not the most financially astute individuals. These are people who literally put their retirement hopes on 'winning the big one'. So, given the average lottery winner puts in roughly 0 hours per week learning about finance, budgeting, and investing, odds are they will make some spectacularly bad money decisions unless they hire an honest financial manager. Most of these people would be better off taking the payout over 30 years option.
