I hope everyone is using the Proxy vote to say NO to Charles Robbins and the other worthless ELT. Not that it will make a difference other than sending a message!

ER funds from Cisco posted to my bank account today. I was on the 5th October exit. Wow, even at 22% IRS tax that's a lot of tax. Not to mention the CA taxes. Oh. I just did...
