However, this year, as proud as I was to hear my name announced, I heard the names of three others called, Brock Blackwell, Ajay Tew and James Sanders, that gave me an even greater sense of pride.

On Sept. 1, we observe Labor Day — a celebration of the American worker. Of course, you work hard at your own job, but, when you think of it, every worthwhile endeavor in life requires significant effort — and that’s certainly the case with investing.

in
Conville, Bobby 2014.jpg

Asset allocation is a time-tested strategy that can help take the guesswork out of choosing investments for your portfolio. Instead of putting all your eggs in one basket, you spread your eggs (dollars) among a variety of baskets (stocks, bonds and cash). The baskets can be further divided within each type of investment.

Sonny, Cher and melon juice

Life is settling down, except for a few happenings.
My biggie was the party at the church for Earl and Lenda Thompson’s 50th anniversary. I’m telling you, these folks know how to party. The stars of the show were our pastor and his wife, Scott Fenton and Judy. Those two are something else, fun but deeply committed to their ministry. They are real people persons, and very friendly, but never forgetting the seriousness of their calling. Pastor and wife  are truly loved by all the church family. Our church is, I think about the size of Cook Baptist, and a very large crowd  was at the party.
