I decided to take my own advice and go on vacation for the month. By the looks of it, I didn't miss much.
Well June was an uneventful month, the only exception being the numerous weinie roasts going on throughout the country.
is that the first child going to be named Ima Weiner or Yora Weiner.
I suspect these Weiners will not be of the Kosher variety.
Not much interested me at all last month so solely out of curiosity:

that prior to going ex-dividend, hit pieces generally come out,
questioning the companies ability to sustain its dividend. Some

Being from Nevada, I think it's worth a gamble.
Here's the portfolio allocations:
|Telecom / Inet
|Food / Sin
|MF - Value
|MF - Small Cap
|MF - Large Cap
Black Squirrel - the pride of Marysville, KS. Marysville has some awesome mosquitos too.
That's it for this month. Have a happy 4th of July!
