"When the facts change I change my opinion, what do you do?"
John Maynard Keynes
Successful investing is not rocket science or luck but
 requires attention to methods that create success.
Four Course Goals: 1. To show the majority of what has been taught
about investing is ineffective for the individual investor. 2. Offer alternative
approaches to significantly increase ultimate wealth using fact based
 investing (vs judgment, experience, or expert opinion). 3. Show how
this can be achieved while controlling risk, minimizing taxes, and short-term volatility.
4. Provide a framework to accomplish these objectives while beating
 the S&P 500, sleeping soundly at night, avoiding common behavioral
investing errors, and having a life. I bring to the class stories of my failures
and successes in investments and investment strategy. Backed by an extensive
 list of readings, resources, and recommendations for a variety of investment styles.
Pre-registration is required.
Call Center with any questions or to register.
Cost: $20 FOR ALL 6 CLASSES!

Waterbury Symphony Day Trip
Waterbury Symphony presents
Master Musician Garrick Ohlsson
Sunday, March 11 ~ 2:00-5:00 pm
Litchfield Community Center
@ Naugatuck Valley Community College Fine Arts Center
There is no better music to lighten up a dark winter day than Johannes Brahms'
 brilliant Second Piano Concerto, and no better artist to bring this masterpiece
 to life than pianist Garrick Ohlsson. A distant opening horn call invites us
to enter a mysterious, enchanted world. Virtuosity and profound depth of
feeling are required in equal measure in this concerto, traversing a
 passionate scherzo, an intimate dialogue between cello and piano, and a
concluding rondo full of gypsy swagger. Haydn's 100th symphony begins
with a wistful sigh of woodwinds, but soon gives way to music of joy
and exuberance, ending in a literal crash of cymbals brilliant enough
to illuminate even the gloomiest of winter days.

Price includes transportation on LCC Van, and admission for concert
Sunday ~ March 11 ~ $35PP ~ Transportation on LCC Van
Depart LCC at 2:00pm ~ Show Starts at 3pm ~ Return to LCC After Show
At the Naugatuck Valley Community College Fine Arts Center
