Hope they didn't 'rape' retirees or something. though i haven't read about any indictments so far in the blog...dunno maybe they're on the lam? they sure spend somewhat more money at sea than i had projected (so far).
If you look around on their website, you'll learn that he was a successful commodities trader in Chicago and she was an admin assistant with a law firm. He states that they lived on her salary so he could do the trading and had the good fortune of being a good trader. I suspect he's quite sharp and they have a tidy little nest egg. They seem to pick up on things quite easily. Several of their posts had my husband and I rolling in laughter because they'd do some silly thing, realize it was silly, remedy it, and then poke fun at themselves for having done it. It seems they were picking up on how to do things as they go along. Good entertainment.
