<font color="red">INVESTING FOR YOUR RETIREMENT</font color>

<font color="green">If you had purchased $1,000 of Nortel Stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.</font color>

<font color="blue">With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.</font color>

<font color="orange">With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.</font color>

<font color="brown">But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of Beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have had $214.00.</font color>


<font color="red">Based on the above, current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.</font color>

It's called the 401-Keg Plan. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

"or the Texan fav, LoneStar"

WTF! You definitely need lessons in Texas beer drinkin'. Only the outa towners purposely drinks that stuff ;-) Remember all those cows you saw? Half of what goes into Lone Star Beer comes from those cow, and I ain't talking about milk /ccboard/images/graemlins/ooo.gif sid

Funny thing is, the LoneStar beers that they sell in the bars here in NY look completely different than the ones I was drinking there. Maybe we get the better stuff?

Simple inverstments like Balabushka's in the early eightys were somewhere around $700-$1000. Now they draw about $12000-$20000, my parents thought I had rocks in my head back then.... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
