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....
