Wow, it really has been a long time since my last post on themoneygardener. I've been extremely busy looking after our two kids and getting our business off the ground. The market has been rolling right along pleasantly actually. Seems like unemployment and housing is taking very long to come back in the US, but I believe that it will be back and that's what the market is anticipating. I haven't made any trades lately, just collecting dividends and paying less attention to daily fluctuations.
