Default Retirement Plan

This "Retirement Plan" was sent to me by a friend who is proud to share this sound financial advice free of charge to all interested parties.

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.
With Enron, you would have $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.
With WorldCom, you would have less than $5.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of Beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling price, you would have $214.00.

Based on the above, current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.

It's called the 401-Keg Plan.

Let's Go Buffalo!

According to Benjamin Fraklin beer was proof positive that God loved us.
