View Full Version : Watch your investments...

From an email I was sent:- If you bought $1000 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.

If you bought $1000 worth of Budweiser beer one year ago, drank all the beer, and traded in the cans for a nickel deposit, you would have $79.

My advice to you is to start drinking heavily.

Forget the e-mail, dug out three pension plans (small) to cash in to assist eldest son to buy house month ago.

House massively more expensive than anticipated. Pension plan redemption documents placed aside.

( F..k me what a mistake.)

Pension plans now a shadow of former selves.

Moral of the story?

Not sure that I have quite got a grip on what life has to offer!
