A Capitalist Tacks his Sails

Having discovered cryptocurrencies a couple of months ago, I have been building a financial base. In that time, I have set my stocks portfolio on automatic, only paying caretaker-attention, checking in from time to time.  For the foreseeable future, that wil be the ongoing paradigm. 

In changing times, the sapient sailors trim their sails or risk losing the race, running aground, or worse. 


The Undiscovered Country

Last month (May 2021), I set up a monthly Bitcoin purchase with for the end of each month. It executed on May 31, and I am quite happy with this undertaking; if I say so myself. 

Realizing that this is well trod territory in some circles; as for this, I am still on the denovo cutting edge in my sphere.

I did it for simple wont of diversification. 

Better store of value that fiat currencies. 

We shall see where this financial path leads. ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜‰


And the King gets a Crown,Well a Corona

Shortly after getting the first needle, I started showing symptoms of COVID.  So, looks like I took the good old fashioned way of achieving immunity, trial by fire. 

As a Dutchman, I am quite proudly stubborn.

So until it mutates, I am supra-immune ti the uncommon cold. 


Finally Got the Needle

Got my first COVID vaccination today.  There's promise that i will; able to do more once I receive my second shot.๐Ÿคž 


A Dutchman, Known to Utilize a dutchman or Two

In woodworking, dutchman is an ad hoc process, tool or material that is used in an impromptu manner; e.g. a shim to allow space when conducting a table, chair, stool or cabinet. 

Ther are a few specialities in the Dutch paradigm: writers.  (Hans Christian Andersson), artists (Vincent Van Gogh and a distant maternal relation to me,  Rembrandt), nautical (Dutch were mad seafarers during colonial times) and financial (first international stockmarket 1602).

I know naught about woodworking, craftmanship,  et al. My Dutch Core Competency lay in the financial arena. Id est, my bailiwick is investments. Principally equity and equity derivative devices.

Breaking the Flu, Breaking the Flu

This past fortnight, reminiscent of last January (I Fought the Flu,  and the Flu Lost), a seemingly innocuous bug, one that i should easily be able to vanquish, attacked my nasal sinus, made its way too my ear.  Then down my eustachian tube and to refuge in my throat. Thrust to lungs, where I am coughing thre phlegm up and expelling it from my body systems. I sincerely hope next year doesn't make it a trifecta.๐Ÿคž


A Familiar Hat

 Once again I reprized my role as house technocrat.  Being a Capitalist, I have greater access to more of the technological and financial apparatus than my housemates do.  Acting in my role as MiddleMan, I ordered some foodstuffs from a fast food chain over the internet.  I used DoorDash to get some stuff from Sonic and deliver it to my house. Financing it all with one of his gift cards.  Hard to go wrong, using someone else's money.
