    What is everyone doing for exercise when gyms close down?

    When the work out room closed in our building I started to panic. It is still cold in Chicago but I put on my big boy pants and ran outside 3 times this week on the lakefront that is still all messed up from winter storms.

    How far can the stock market fall?

    I am still all in but down 25% this year. It is certainly scary but as they say the market is no place for the timid. I have put a little in every day the market goes down 1,000 points. We could go down another 25% but life will return to normal at some point in the next six months. I would...

    Garlic, Food From The Gods?

    When I started to cook I would always crush garlic in one of those hand held presses but slowly but surely have leaned how to slice, mince and smash garlic. I start to shake when I am running low so I always have at least a 1/2 a head in eye site at all times. I am sure a chef would laugh at...
