I have no idea what everyone is talking about...someone on mgoblog tell me how to make some money.

Wait, I just click and I can earn $10,000 from that one guy who has -5 MgoPoints. Nevermind.

I loved the setlist.

I thought it was cool how they just kept playing, little downtime.

The only complaint I have is that Ford Field sucks and at times the drums were bouncing off the back wall and distoriting the sound.   I thought AIC sounded terrible the first couple songs and then it seemed much better.  Guns was real good, and sounded great overall, but I am reminded why arena rock sucks and that I should have spent more money  to get in front of the stage.

We had floor seats, 30 rows back and I thought they sounded great.  I don't recall a single note Axl missed and Slash blew the roof off the joint.  I was glad Axl was healed from his broken foot and could run around stage.  And the other guitarist, Richard Fortus killed it too.

As far as pure substance goes, I thought it was the best concert I've ever seen.  I am feeling nostalgic this morning because it's like I've witnessed history.  I'm fortunate to have seen them twice now.  First in '93 and then again last night.

Slash was on fire last night.  I mean out of his mind on fire!  I feel priviledged to witness the show. 

It is top five in my life (I've been to hundreds of shows - other top five are the smashing pumpkins at the state theater in 95, watch the throne, ministry at the state theater in 95 (filth pig tour), pearl jam at van andel in 2006, and tori amos at hill in 96 or garth brooks last year)

As a 50 year old who doesn't need their money for another 17 years & who dollar cost averages 401K purchases I welcome dips in the stock market.  These dips give great value to my monthly investing dollars.  In 17 years I won't even remember what the market did today or next week.

With that rule, you're putting way too much in bonds early on and losing out on stock market returns.

I'm 29, have 100% of my Roth IRA in stock index funds as well as 85% of my 401k. 

I don't intend on changing that allocation until I'm 10 years out from retirement, and then slowly, never more than half.  I'm probably more riskier than average, but history and math are on my side.

to tell Scots and Northern Irish they should vote to leave the EU because allowing bureaucrats in a distant foriegn capital to make a few rules on common markets is bad, then turn around and tell them they shouldn't even think about leaving the UK because allowing bureaucrats in a distant foreign capital to make a hell of a lot of rules about nearly everything is good.

Here's to hoping the Emerald Isle gets re-unified and William Wallace, I think you're finally gonna get that win after all these years. Off you go, Scots. Give Westminster a "Glasgow Kiss" on your way out the door (for the uninitiated, that's a head-butt to the face, popular in many a Scottish pub).
