Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Must I subscribe to or disprove any, or maybe several, aspects of Newtonian physics to report that I am not ill sitting here in Florida- per the title of this thread?

An abundance of your input much appreciated.

Re: Daily PP Performance Data

I believe we have a chart or two showing the Permanent Portfolio and regression to the mean. With recent volatility in mind, I would like to see an updated chart with how the PP is doing vs the mean. Ideally, thru Friday, March 20. Might someone please supply that chart or direct me to its location ...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Benko dates back to 2011.

Good to see a "founder" checking in. I think there is a thread asking where the originals have gone. So....

Mortgage refinancing

I started this thread after seeing the mention of a "mortgage rates game" in General Corona Virus Discussion. I checked with the bank, with whom I have the mortgage. and they quoted me a rate 1/2 per cent higher than my 2 year old mortgage. I visited the credit union where I have accounts and was to...

Re: Where and how do you purchase physical gold?

Just a thought: Would it be reasonable for members of this forum to consider buying and selling gold coins with fellow Gyro-HB members? No long distance traveling, quirky neighborhoods and, on a positive note, more personal interactions- everyone is a friend.. Premiums, fees and other annoyances mig...

Re: Where did you go to School?

Vinny, We will need to discuss the Yankees and the DH. This may require PMs. I am with Xan on the designated hitter. I did finally see the Mona Lisa in Paris a couple of years ago. If we put a mustache above that mysterious smile, we get the designated hitter. Just thought I'd pass along a thought t...

Re: Where did you go to School?

Kbg and Vinny, Summer, 1995: DW and I saw Christopher Cross as a warm up act for the Beach Boys. The location was Jones Beach State Park. There is that amphitheater on the north side of the park. As to the complaint that Cross was the opening act, I think he did those 3 songs you mentioned and out! ...

Re: Meeting In Person

I am in NYC at least twice a year. I will also travel to another locale and include it as part of a bigger trip. If a location is mentioned, I will try to arrange transportation.

Re: Meeting In Person

Vinny,

Meeting members while passing thru may be the best possibility.

Did you arrange your meet using PMs?

Re: Meeting In Person

Vinny, It was fun organizing for the several NYC meets. There has been a recent chat about a Texas meet. Smith1776 has expressed an interest in a meet, as has Moda. I would like to attend if i could get picked up at the airport. Not sure if this could happen. I think someone local would need to take...

Re: Designated Hitter

Vinny,

I've argued against the DH previously.


TennPaGa is a great contributor to this thread.

IT's getting late but I'll be contributing more in a day or2.

Looks like Xan and I are on the same page re the DH.

Cheers.
