Wow - those things are big! Not my doing, so I’m assuming there is an AI at work sizing the emoji based on topic. Much appreciated!

Re: is twitter for mentally ill people?

Twitter - source of so much wisdom! My sister's dogs are fascinated by single pieces of cheese, Pavlov-style. I will admit an attraction to cheese platters though. https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/media/responsive/panel-770/upload/9e/10/9e10e4f81aa6d0c90ac4ec5fb214e99c00a8aaba.jpeg Where is the assortmen...

Summertime

Not sure about the future, but traveling (masked) these days and so far, so good. And so, an ode to my favorite island.  At one end, the wildlife refuge. nantucket wildlife refuge.jpg Typical "shingle-style" architecture, it can get very grand, small is beautiful and that's all I need. : )

Re: Question about Search Function

A few users who might have answered questions on XVA, LIBOR, and the like over the years.

The bureaucratic, practical side, not the crazy/sexy/cool side of the Forum. ; )

Thank you, admin!
