Hi there daytraders! Just a note to bring you up to date on my health
escapades and the medical gymnastics of getting older.
The reason I am not doing the Nasdaq service is an issue that came up

I had an enlarged Thyroid removed on March 19th. It was covered with malignant
large cell type B non-Hogkins growths or nodes. I knew something was wrong

We are overwhelmingly grateful and thankful for the outpouring we have
I have known for some time that my soul will outlive my flesh, I turned
all these problems over to Him for His outcome and I am still here today
in the flesh yet. I have peace within myself knowing that my soul will
spend eternity with Him. Amen. Have you considered where your soul will
