Yes, the really superficial stuff like raising a family, providing a good home in a good neighborhood, mentoring our children through the years and seeing to it that they have presents under the tree at christmas, or whichever holiday you hold special for that purpose. Advising them with a combination of our interests and theirs, not not just ours, not just theirs. That is our OPMS and when it comes to results, even your lofty ones, it is the gold standard. And I understand why Lou and yourself think differently.
