On a more official note I would like to say A BIG THANK YOU to around 100,000 people who've read my writing on this site. I will write a bit more about this on my blog. Quite a few people have been asking me if I'll write for ShareProphets again... well that's up to Tom really. I would like to in future but know that I have a lot to learn- including 'listening to my elders and betters'. I remain a long term buy and hold share investor with a six figure share portfolio and every day is a learning and goal day.
