    GreenState O was a stock I held for a while, made a bit on it moved on for some reason I can't remember. I also did alright the 1st quarter. Bet you never considered diesel a growth investment. Good to hear from you !!

    Eliot Pryor Certainly been nice to see IRM and other value/income investments outperform during the 1st quarter.
    I was pleasantly surprised to end the Q in the green!
    Hope all is well on your end. Getting ready to begin my final work season, even got the big dog truck out of the garage. Full
    tank of diesel purchased in November when I put her up for the winter. That Nov. fill up was probably @ $2 less per gallon than current diesel prices!
    All the best
    (finally bought a position in O(03/14/22) at $65.02/sh, had been patiently waiting for months! ha,ha)

    Yes i see that. I will have to remember this next fall. A small project to keep me entertained over the winter.

    Hard to believe, these natural light window sill grown clones are a week shy of 5 months old, now 7 inches tall (lol). Still no signs of revegging yet. They must have concrete like root balls by now. They might just make it to planting season.

    Both the doe and skipper look healthy! Seem to have made it through the winter in great shape. Must be early brown ground for you this year. Hurts my back just looking at that pile of wood. Blocking and splitting are actually fun work, stacking just plain sucks.

    I will no longer have a wood stove to deal with. I will miss it believe it or not, i curse cleaning it out 1x wk in winter but i will miss the warmth and cooking ability when the power goes out LOL. I will create a firepit for sure

    A couple of deer looking out my dirty kitchen window yesterday. Now that most the snow has melted I can see that I
    made pretty good headway(5 cord done for sure) on next winters wood. Only 6 more logs from the truck load left to cut up and split, yea. Be awhile before I
    can stack it up, ground has to firm up.

    Still holding them back My window sill clones are now almost 4 months old(and 6" high!), continuously chopped
    and pretty much stuck in a heavy pre-flower state. They haven't seen artificial light since the beginning of Dec (except light from the living room in the morning and night before bedtime).
    Days are noticeably longer now and would think they'd be thinking of reverting to a full veg state.
    They are destined to be planted out in the woods somewhere, left to their own devise. They've been nice to have as house plants.

    Eliot Pryor aside from the with drawl penalties under certain circumstances, I don't see much downside for a bit different alternative place to park $10K(or less). Only losing a third of a percent to inflation . Yet for some (UNM) inflation can be a good thing(shameless plug) <g>. From their conference call after beating top and bottom line earnings

    Thank you, Mark. And our next question is from Erik Bass from Autonomous Research. Erik, your line is now open, if you’d like to proceed.

    Erik Bass

    Hi. Thank you. Can you talk broadly about the impact of higher inflation on your business? How much benefit do you get from rising wages in the premiums? And are there any areas where you're exposed to higher potential claim costs because of increased general inflation? And how does it affect your outlook for G&A growth?

    Rick McKenney

    Yes, it's a good broad question, Erik. I think, when you think about inflation, so you think about inflation and then possibly interest rates as well. But focusing on the inflation side, we will see some benefit. I think, we articulated some of those results and what we talk about is natural growth. When we see wages go up, we're going to benefit by that, just given the covers that we have out there and protecting people.

    We see a little bit of it in our own costs, as Mike articulated. But I think it's -- from an overall perspective, an inflationary environment is a good one for us and that's pretty much holistic, Mike. I don't know if you'd add anything to that.

    Mike Simonds

    No, I think you're right. I think the benefits that we pay out on the disability side and the life insurance side, are oftentimes a function of salary. So the benefits will move up, but the premium will move up in lockstep and that's really a good premium. It comes in with very low acquisition costs and very little incremental expense to serve. So, like Rick said, I think it's roundly positive for us.

    I don't have any I bonds. I have been reading about them recently. Nice return !!

    Humidity has settled in at 58% in the GG4 jars, which is about perfect for this sticky strain for rolling
    Eliot Pryor , ever buy an "I" savings bond? I'd guess when the interest rate gets readjusted in April(currently 7.12%) it might be higher? $10K max/cal. year. I'm interested.

    Eliot Pryor I saw the news out of KSS, it seems to have lifted all boats in the sector. I might have mentioned,
    I have a close relative who is a lead men's outerwear designer for one of Kohl's publicly traded competitors.
    They treat him quite well, silicon valley well with salary &perks...

    With the humidity in the house @19%, the challenge this time of the year is slowing down
    the drying process. After 4 days hanging on the stem, have removed the buds, laid them out on an aluminum baking sheet
    and placed all in a kitchen trash bag. Another few days and into jars it will go with further burping as needed. Real dense buds, so mold is always in the back of my mind. All the best.
