Its 2 AM

Yep, its 2 am in the morning. I can hear the sound of a frog croaking in the distance... and now I feel the urge to write something.

Its been a good week - I think I made about $6000 share trading this week. Could have made more if only I had followed my rules - ie set realistic trading targets.

But when the market turns to my favor, I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl in Spring. Emotion rushes in like floodwater and bang goes my brain.

The funny thing was that I actually fell asleep when the Market roared upwards on Thursday. I don't know why but I just felt so comfortable and secure - my trading plan had worked- the stocks were climbing - and then all of a sudden I felt asleep.

I need Coffee Man.

On other notes, I picked up a Noritake Smithfield today from an eBay seller. See photos below.

Its more younger than the Arlene set that I usually collect, which dates to the 1950s, and it has a pumpkin style design which was favored in the 80s.

Nonetheless, its pretty and the color is still good. Best of all, it has NEVER been used, and came in the original boxes!!! I would have kept them, but the boxes stank and were badly eaten by bugs.

There was some brown stain on several of the pieces- most likely inflicted by damp conditions. Washing Liquid failed to get them off. However a good dose of "the old faithful" sodium bicarb helped to remove all of the brown stains. Never resort to chemicals or metal and abrasive cleaners!!

Finally, I can have my tea in a civilized manner! LOL.
