Wait, is that a curl of smoke from under the lid, coming from those hickory chips?

Just checked E*TRADE's estimate of my dividends, etc. It's like I have an average worker from Kyrgyzstan working just for me. If I lived in Kyrgyzstan, I could retire.

If I climb the ladder to Greece or Mexico, you may never see me again.
