    5) Develop a completely different tone and attitude than previously

    6) Force yourself to interact with co-workers.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Re-evaluate my pension investment mix.

    I am considering this

    U.S. Small Companies Stock Fund
    The investment objective of this Fund is to provide the ability to invest in the stock of smaller U.S. companies. The investment strategy is to select the stock of smaller companies anticipated to have a reasonable expectation to outperform the small company benchmark used by the PERF Board of Trustees. The investment return comes almost exclusively from the change in the market value of the securities because most small companies do not consistently pay dividends.

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    JNA: you are crazy if you don't hop on that small funds in PERF. I have been extremely happy having moved 50% to it and plan on moving ALL the rest to it.

    I just wish it didn't take three months for PERF to act :wacko:

    Things to ponder while Cyburbia is down.

    [3 layers of sarcasim deep] I'm working on outsourcing both my day-job and my Cyburbia postings to a firm in India. After all why should I have to work? Most of what I do is generate reports and post conservative rants. Surely there is someone in India capable of doing these things for a bargain price while I concentrate on my cycling. [3 layers of sarcasim deep]

    I'm also considering a water feature for the back yard. Any comments/observations?
