Van Fits in Our Garage…Barely

Had some mods made to our garage so that we could get the camper van into it. Thought I’d have a whopping 1/2″ clearance, but it looks more like 2″. I guess having stuff in it and a full take of gas helps!

We Got a Camper Van!

Picked up a camper van over Spring Break in Vegas. There is nothing but nature between Vegas and Reno [8 hr drive]. We did drive down the 100 mi Extraterrestrial Highway, but didn’t see any UFOs/space saucers. A lot of the drive is an open range for cows – grazing and lazying around on the road or shoulder.

20 Hard and Fast Rules to Help You Beat the Stock Market
By Simon Thompson.

I got this book from the library and kept putting it off to read.  However, once I did start, I’m very glad I did.  I HIGHLY recommend reading this if you are a trader of any sorts.

On average, the market goes up:
0.34% two trading days before St. Patrick’s Day
0.37% the trading day before

Cumulatively, that’s up 0.97% in 4 days!

BOOK: Trading Secrets. REMINDER – Spring Forward

By Simon Thompson.

The market falls on the Monday following the “spring forward” changing of the clocks. Why? People are sleep deprived and apparently need a few days to catch up on that missing hour of sleep.
