Thought it was time to give a stock update: Right now I own MOT, HLEX, LNDC, YMI, AACE, and TYL and currently watching BEBE, COH, TM, BW, HSR, NVEC, and HRT. The stock that has made me the most money, IVAC, is now below the point I bought it. Something three months ago I wouldn't have believed could happen. I'm starting to pay attention to Gary Kaltbaum and Mark Cuban's Share Sleuth for some shorts. Still haven't thought too much about options. Gorilla is still my foundation and where I find most of the stocks to buy. I took a look at Jim Cramer's stocks that he recommended 3 months ago and wasn't impressed at all. Given that the last 3 months weren't very good, perhaps this was unfair. However, his short recommendations weren't very successful either. I'll watch Mad Money for entertainment, but that's about it. Overall, the commodities look like they've topped so time to start shorting gold and oil (recommendation from Gary K). And I wouldn't put too much into real estate either.

The 5th anniversary of 9/11 just passed. Byron and I watched the Path to 9/11 and couldn't believe how much the US knew about the bombers before the hijackings and how stupid the bombers were. Very frustrating. Also, I never knew about the planned attacks on Dec. 31, 1999. Thank goodness that one bomber started sweating like crazy when he crossed the border. The good news is it looks promising that a future attack on the scale of 9/11 seems unlikely to succeed. Probably US interests overseas will be the main targets.

The marathon training is going well. I ran 18 miles last weekend and have another 18-miler and one 21-miler training run before Chicago's 26.2 miles on October 22. So far so good. No injuries and the 18 miler wasn't too bad. I created a custom shirt on Zazzle to (possibly) wear during the marathon. I'll see how it turns out when I get it in the mail.

Videos were added and Indie Giant's featured item is now displayed. Woohoo! Candee posted more pictures of Lauren, I really like this one and this one!
