Thank you for your post.

Attempting to beat The Three Fund Portfolio] is possible. It is also possible to beat a gambling casino.

Never gamble with money you will need.

Best wishes.

I am the luckiest man in the world to have such a genuine following.

It is hard for me to believe that I am half way to 101. Your messages are one of the reasons.

Thank you.

Hi Taylor:

I think one of the reasons that John Bogle gave so many interviews was that he was delighted that a lot of folks were still interested in what an old guy like him had to say. Sometimes it is hard enough to get your own family to listen to you! :wink: So it must be a delight at 100 to have fans and people who care about you and who are interested in what you have to say. I guess we have gone from being a Jack Bogle fan club to a Taylor Larimore fan club, that isn't bad!! One more accomplishment to add to your long list. Taylorheads, just take a moment and think that over.

I have already named the Three Fund Portfolio in your honor, the mighty Nedsaid is considering naming the forum in your honor with what very little power and authority have been vested in me. Anyhow, I can have some fun with that.

Best wishes,

Ned

I stop scrolling anytime I see the sailboat, knowing that there's going to be some wisdom, a lesson, or just some reassurance in the post. Thank you, Taylor, for all you've done and continue to do for this forum, its readers, and our families.

Taylor,

You've gone through so many periods of mild to severe health issues.

What gave you, and gives you, the strength to persevere and remain hopeful through these challenges?

I'm very glad to read your ongoing posts here.
Thank you for your "mentorship".
"Me Ke Aloha"
