    Guru Named Spec Not Perfect

    I got in trouble following Spec's picks AGEN & HILL as I believed they had a future and hope they recover but they now represent my biggest paper loss. Spec-You can return to the USA as KOSP just intoduced Niaspan in Canada today so you may get a pink slip soon.My best picks have been "Fallen Angels" but I tend to sell too soon when they fly.Best decision was not listening to Aok & Lib on diversify from ABT.Worst decision was not listening to Persh on FDG.But had great alfresco lunch today Fresh Monterey Calamari,Wild Rock Fish with fingerling potatoes [not from Wendy's] and nice savignon blanc from New Zealand,party of 4 [I picked up the tab cost 3 sh ABT].CAVU day in Washington.

      Actually, it was Marian, not Meriam.

      The BEST song from that show is 'The Sadder but Wiser Girl for me" -- Harold Hill bemoans the problems of being with a 'good' girl. (A pre-cursor to several of Billy Joel's later hits...)

      No wide-eyed, eager, wholesome innocent Sunday school teacher for me.
      That kinda girl spins webs no spider ever--
      Listen, boy--
      A girl who trades on all that purity merely wants to trade my independence for her security.
      The only affirmative she will file refers to marching down the aisle.
      No golden, glorious, gleaming pristine goddess--
      No sir!
      For no Diana do I play faun.
      I can tell you that right now.
      I snarl, I hiss: How can ignorance be compared to bliss?
      I spark, I fizz for the lady who knows what time it is.
      I cheer, I rave for the virtue I'm too late to save
      The sadder-but-wiser girl for me!

      (...more verses....)

    • plute, do you want me to start naming names again? Are you up to the battle? Hell, no, you're shot. Too much chlorine?

    • who the hell is grizzard I heard that over 40 years ago!Another one used in the Navy for an untalented aircraft mechanic was: "That kid could screw up an ironball"! If you mean Lewis Grizzard maybe I'll sue him for plagarism.My all-time favorite is Herb Caen but only Aok when he was a kid & me remember Herb.

    • Ok

      I am about to let you off, dimwit.

      Talk about barbecue, and you do not even eat any.

      Huhjohn...Hajohn...silly ass anme.

      aok

    • Aok-Send me $50 and I'll reserve a signed copy for you.Since all you guys Persh,Aok etc never lose money how can I be happy about it.You guys just tell me how much I lost on ABT and you know how that hurts.I wish I had a high flyer to gloat about but I don't know how to gloat.Maybe Persh,the old gloat can teach me.

      Big bullshitter, acting like Uncle Bob. You know the guy.

      Get you in my squares, my target more often than not.

      aok

    • Shetlands? I went to school with Grizzard. Don't steal his lines. haj

    • When one loses money, it is just understood that Plute is happy about it. Kind of like the sun coming up in the morning. Some things just happen.

      Lib

      Is it not the truth ? He will not allow himself to be accountable for anything. Just fun on the board. Old man's diversion. Writing a book, What bunk.

    • Persh,

      Was Plute on the UST board posting timmmmberrrrrrrr like he was on the NFI board last April?

    • Ask Meriam (the librarian) where those 76 trombones got her !! :D
