#17 of 18 Happy Days Are Up Ahead!

Happycar says happysurfing. Sorry about your stocks. I'm hardheaded and stayed with bonds even during the heydays of the 1999 stock market rally when they doubled in price daily. Yep, everybody laughed at me back then. They said,"Only five percent interest?" Rightlane investing for me. You can have the leftlane, brother. Have to go, this is not a investing message board. P.S. What is a dandelion?
#18 of 18 yellow wispy weed flower

they rise grandly above the grass, flower in about half-inch long petals, randomly organized, some hundreds of them surrounding a sticky center of about a quarter-inch diameter. until the seeds mature. then the petals dry up to fluff, the first wind or disturbance kicks loose hundreds of seeds with parasails that float for long distances in the wind of even a butterfly, to root and grow.
they'll suck up a lawn or garden in a year, crowd everything else out, and they root deep and hard. dandelions produce rubber in their sap, and practically nothing eats 'em.
many are the kids who are lured into the world of work first with, "hey, I'll pay a dollar for every bag of dandelions you pick!" by frustrated parents. I wager that nobody has ever filled the second shopping bag.
dandelions are why 2,4-D is a billion dollar business. you by God don't want 'em in the islands, brown tree snakes are better for you
