It sure is entertaining, amusing and amazing,
but what really sets it apart gratifyingly
is that it is
uplifting, inspirational and morally rewarding.


In these disturbing times
Circus Smirkus
is a welcoming oasis
of hope, promise and fortitude.


Circus Smirkus
at its conclusion
brings tears to my eyes —
what these KIDS manage to achieve is so wonderful,
their parents must be so, so proud (deservedly).


This was the second time we have seen them. The first was exactly a year ago, to the day — also in Wolfeboro.

We were blown away last year and I vowed that I will be back — not just for the show, but also to show our support and gratitude.

It was good last year, and I thought it was even better this year, though on the way home we worked out that they did not have the tightrope walking in high heels which was world class.

All of this year’s acts, including the comedic interludes, were extremely well done. Bravo. Kudos.

It is easy to forget that these are just kids, school kids. Not professionals and, moreover, that they put this astounding show together in 18-days. 18-days!

I was in awe last year and I am in awe again this year.

Yes, I am a circus aficionado who has seen a lot of circuses including Barnum & Bailey (at least 9 times), Cirque du Soleil (at least 4 times), Big Apple (many, many times) & the famed Moscow Circus (in Moscow in the 1970s). In terms of raw entertainment Circus Smirkus is as good! In terms of ‘feel good’ vibes — it is better than all of them!

Yes, I am a fan, a BIG fan of ‘Smirkus’. A wonderful endeavor. Something we can all be proud of.

Thank YOU, Smirkus.

It really is like stealing candy from a baby!

I live off the stock market and have done for the last 12-years.

So, it helps if you can anticipate what is going to happen and in my DOTAGE I have, to my own amusement, have got good at this. Yes, it PAYS. SMILE. Thanks.

Old age and experience really does help.

Just 15 or 16 years ago I would listen to the investing advice of old men and wish I could be so sanguine and sage.

NOW I am one of those old men, and I am loving it.

While others panic and sell, I rebalance and wait for the bounce. I actually rebalanced yesterday because I knew the bounce was imminent. What can I say.

Yes, I can give you advice on investing. SMILE.
