Hopeful Monday


The other day, Leslie Samuelrich got a call from a financial adviser looking for investments that matched his clients’ wishes. “I have two sisters who came in that inherited money from their dad,” the adviser told her. “And they both absolutely do not want any of their money in fracking companies.”

Other callers just say “I want to invest fossil fuel free,” said Samuelrich, president of Green Century Capital Management, a 20-year-old company with two diversified mutual funds that exclude fossil fuel companies. “Those are the words they’re using, so the divestment movement has resonated with people.”

The increased business for Samuelrich and others offering fossil-free investments is a secondary benefit of the fast-growing divestment movement that has members hanging giant banners and staging protests, street theater, sit-ins and other actions as part of the first Global Divestment Day on Friday.

    Petro stinks in more ways than one, it’s good to see it is being deliberately ignored in the investment sector.

    Presidents Day favoring the two biggies, the rest don’t count, especially the last two megalomaniacs.

    It got down to -21° overnight. I feel so sorry for the poor birds. And for any dogs stupid people make stay outside. I’m so glad the dogs next door are gone and I don’t have to look over there, see them, feel sad, worry.

    I planned another Family Dinner out at a restaurant for Sunday. Now Bob tells me we may have to cancel, may be getting snow. Well, we’ll see.

    This is only the second dinner, the first was in October. My plan was to do that once a month but then the holidays got here. Time to resume.

    Olive Garden is good enough for me but Jill wants a different place.

    Call it 75 minutes of stick walking today.

    No ducks in evidence today.

    The Ducky Armada was conspicuously absent on the lake here too. The full Armada is about 60+ strong, QUACKS-O-PLENTY!
