Sorry for the blogging ending rather abruptly mid-week. Regrettably, I’ve been helping take care of my elderly father for the past several years, and there are times when he requires more of my attention than usual.

Robert Williams, the founder of the Baltimore, Maryland-based investment research/market commentary service Wall Street Daily, was asking the questions. Apparently, I didn’t hear the entire exchange between the two. Williams got the former investing partner of George Soros in […]

Speaking of farmers today, I was going through my father’s desk in search of a pad of paper while I was at my parents’ place last weekend. Opening a drawer, I spotted a copy of The Old Farmer’s Almanac tucked away in there. I just blogged about the Almanac in August, writing: Back when I […]
