MERRY Christmas & a Prosperous 2011

James and his snowman meet Father Christmas.

Sativex please Santa!

I can’t think of any thing more fitting to the end of 2010 other than this terrific song that just about sums up the trials and tribulations of being a small Private Investor!

So I’ll leave you all with these immortal words from the Great Sinatra!

And now the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case of which I’m certain

I’ve lived a life that’s full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets I’ve had a few
But then again too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes there were times I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out, I faced it all
And I stood tall and did it my way

I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
I’ve had my fill, my share of losing
And now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that
And may I say not in a shy way
Oh no, oh no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man what has he got
If not himself then he has not
To say the things he truly feels

Father Christmas (1991 film)

Up the Revolution!

And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

A very Merry Christmas to all Private Investors and Day-Traders. A Happy and prosperous New Year.

Your Good Health

God Bless

    I am finding this site fantastic. I wish I knew this place from before.
    Again, I think this is a Xmas gift to me.
    Hope you have a lovely Xmas and New Year and keep your hard work up.
    Kindest Regards,

    Wishing you A very Happy Christmas Dan. Your blog goes from strength to strength – best of luck to us all.

  15. Dust Ferret says:

    Dan, I see HUB from iii has just launced his own site.
    Looks like youve got competition. Suggest you pick 10 shares in January and see who wins.
    Can you handle the challenge?

  16. Abz says:

    Hi Dust Ferret,
    Regarding HUB from iii, i don’t think there is any reason why Dan should compete. I think we, who follow Dan, should be happy with what Dan is giving us Free of Charge. And Again Picking 10 stocks would not be ideal. Dan now does research on one/two stocks properly and advise us. But proving 10 stocks would be moer time consuming and a question of quality of research. We, small investors, must be happy with what Dan is advising.
    And again, if HUB’s follower is making money following him/her, we have no ill feeling. We all wants to make money.
    Best wishes for xmas and new year.
