auction day! You should be able to buy various bills and notes at auction Thursday 1130AM EST at Vanguard, if you're an auction kind of person.

It's Quiet... Too Quiet: The Permanent Portfolio Story.
There are several thousand nearly complete viral genomes integrated into the human genome, most now inert or missing a crucial gene. These account for 1.3% of the entire genome. That may not sound like much, but 'proper' genes account for only 3%. If you think being descended from apes is bad for your self-esteem, then get used to the idea that you are also descended from viruses.
Ridley, Genome

I haven't checked my portfolio in a month or so. I'll check and report back.

Looks like I'm up 10% since Jan 1. Not bad.

I'm sure my international stocks are lagging, as they have since I added them 10 years ago. Whatever. I'm at 6.3% for 10 years.
Ok let's see. My SP500 index fund has earned 14.67% over the 10 years. The FTSE All World ex US is 6.68%. I'm sure it will turn the corner any day now! :o


Whatever.
Back to summer....
