A hope to emulate Jeff Matthews - and not make it up

This is my first (serious) attempt at an investing blog. There are numerous out there - some good - some truly dreadful.

I am a (semi) retired fund manager - but I can't seem to keep my thoughts to myself. So I have started this blog.

The investing blog I most admire is Jeff Matthews - who - as his title says - doesn't make it up - except when he says he is making it up!

If I can gather half the readers he does I will be happy.

Now is the task: quality ideas that people want to read!

Well done. Let's hope you emulate someone more deserving than Jeff Matthews!
