Attacked by a Burglar Alarm and in need of help
Yes, I have been gone, and yes, it was in a 'good cause.' I have had a bad case of Murphy's Law. I guess you could say my burglar alarm attacked me.
I have been unable to use a computer (or one arm) for months, except for physical therapy and a couple of surgeries. I am back on a limited basis and this is just a quick hello.
I am married to a dog whisperer. I am a bit of a cat whisperer. Most of our pets (7 at the moment) find us or are 'unadoptable' because they have had such extreme abuse. The newest, youngest, largest of the lot are a couple of sweet Dobermans....well, sweet to us and to our granddaughter who scares them to death. Everyone else falls into the category of "snack food." Hence the term "burglar alarms."
Just after Christmas, I reached into the small one's security blanket crate and he raised his head to have his ears scratched. My arm torqued, the rotator cuff tore in half, detached from the bone, and shredded a bit. Okay, small is relative with these guys - the 95 pounder..
During the ensuing months, my email provider changed, deleting all of my email folders, unread emails, and addresses, and I lost a lot of business folders that should have been backed up. I learned why physical therapy is referred to as physical torture by some of my friends. Happily I have been being put back together mostly.
Now I need a different kind of help. I have lost track completely of the market, the stocks, the charts, and pretty much anything that I was up on before everything came crashing down. I would appreciate any info from friends about where we are and what is going on in the world of finance. Also, if you had my email before, the @charter.net has been replaced by firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are in the neighborhood, call first - my welcoming committee is a feral Maine Coon and a 130 pound Dobe.
