Keep Feeding The Fire


Note:  Have not posted in some time but keep plugging away.  Was disappointed in hearing Capital One Sharebuilder is being sold to eTrade and discontinuing the Sharebuilder program. I have been using Sharebuilder for 7 years and have built a portfolio of over $500K with the program.  Program ends next week and it will be sad day for me.

Personal highlight of the 1st half of year was summiting Mt Ranier (pic at top of post).  14,411 feet.  It was one of the best experiences of my life and put a fire in me to climb higher and experience more.
