  4. This week with the pull-back in the market, my newsletter fell back to position #7. Who was it that said "fame is fleeting?"

  5. Too busy to update this every week but I was on the list of 10 top timers this weekend and listed as one of the ten best "long term timers" in the December newsletter. Fame may be fleeting, but at least it has stayed around me since October!
