I've got an investing question I'd like to pose as I believe their are some fairly savvy investors on this board and would like to hear some feedback. I've got a fund in my 401k, Cohen & Steers Institutional Realty Shs Inc: (MF: CSRIX). I wouldn't quite call it a dog but, it does seem to be lagging behind other funds I have. My question about the fund stems from one word in it's name; Realty. Zack's show's it as a 'strong buy' but, I wonder what the outlook is for any realty stock over the next 12-24 months due to businesses shutting down over covid. Any thoughts or insights will be greatly appreciated.

CC, getting better. I have a full fingernail. I lost half of it I thought to the root but it's back. The finger is kinda lopsided but, it's turned out better than what I thought it would after it happened. I haven't seen the 'incident' in my dreams since the fall so my mental state has improved to. All in all, I'm much better these days. As long as I don't bump it against something. Like a shift key... Still very tender. Thanks for asking!

MM, I lived in the first house on the right as you headed up the big hill and drove west on 46 to Bloomington. Six feet out my back door started a steep, 88 foot drop to Salt Creek. The view of Nashville out my back windows at Christmas time, when they deck out the city in white lights, was idyllic.

My wife's family is from north of Fort Wayne. Pretty far north for this southern Indiana guy but, they grew up shivering in the winter. She has a sister who lives in Fort Worth. That sister says locals have been freaking out. Says their house has just enough insulation to keep the air conditioning in during the summer but not enough to keep in the heat during this kind of cold. She says 'layering up' clothing is an unknown skill set down there.

I think I've read accounts of Operation Barbarossa where diesel in German tanks, aircraft and other vehicles 'gelled' at really low temps rendering them inoperable at the gates of Moscow. I think those were like -25 degrees though. Back in '94 I lived in Nashville, IN. Resided in a quaint cabin as a newlyweds. The cabin was heated used heating oil. It froze or gelled or something and our furnace quit working. I think it was the coldest it has ever been in Indiana. Close to that -25 mentioned above. I remember waking up that morning in bed and seeing my breath. Something was wrong... Swiped a bunch of firewood from the neighbor to get a big fire going in the fireplace and opened up the oven at 250 degrees. The heating oil was in tank about 5 feet above the ground. I rolled the dice and started a leaf fire under the tank. A couple of hours later after nearly blowing the place up trying to restart the furnace, we had heat. I froze my azz off but my new wife thought I was a king and rewarded me as such!

I got this theory on why it looks like Cuomo is gonna get thrown under the bus. When OrangeManBad was around he was a useful foil. OrangeManBad no longer around. You'd think the fete'ing would continue and prog media would give him a victory lap. Maybe another Emmy even. Biden is Prez now but, probably not by 2024. This would usher in Prez Kamala. Joe was 'electable' with some media massaging. Kamala? Never. She was, and is, the 'preferred' candidate by the left's upper management. So if Prez Kamala is the standard bear in 2024 she needs protected. Kneecapping Cuomo is upper managements first step in protecting their incumbent. Sticking incompetents like Buttigieg in the administration is another, less entertaining, method of neutering other possible rivals. If any DemProg is even entertaining the thought of running in 2024 they had best be sweeping closets of skeletons, lawyering up against the inevitable Justice Dept investigation and finding some hireable lefty agigitators willing to torch a building or two as a warning to keep upper management at bay.

Well, Alcee Hastings was impeached and removed from the bench. He was then elected to congress. I'd think that sets some sort of precedent that you can be removed from an office and then still be elected to an office.

I'm a Colts fan. I've been burnt by Brady so many times... I don't watch the NFL anymore but if I was betting... 31 to 28 Tampa.

Where I work, managers have to turn in their 'yearly accomplishments' in January. Weighs heavily on their raises and bonuses. The 'good managers' start getting antsy in about October. The 'sh*theads' start freaking out around the middle of December. The long and short of it is that my department, IT, always gets bombarded with drop in projects in December and January so the the good managers and sh*theads can polish up their 'accomplishments'. Needless to say, I and my staff wind up being extra busy. To the point where I have little JOM time. How rude! Anyway, logging in tonight and a thread or two behind and trying to catch up, I find out DrJ is gone. Damn... I'm gonna miss that guys posts. Sorry about the pup Jane...
