  1. Mrs Dalio:

    Our daughter is a teacher at Central Middle School in Greenwich, where 2 of our grandchildren are students (8th & 6th grades) The school has needed much repair, and after this week’s earthquake has been evacuated and claimed unsafe by engineers. I know you have been an advocate for children and education. Your sons probably attended private schools, but this is a school in your own back yard that is a hazard to average children who want an education and to quote my daughter “go to school, play and enjoy their elementary education”. The fields have also been closed to baseball and other sports this year due to the unsafe conditions of the fields, and have to search for a place to practice and play.

    Please give this your attention. This is important to their education and social development for their future, especially after the loss that Covid cost our kids.

  2. Barbara’s husband, Cathie Wood, Carlo Ponzi and Bernie Madoff, are the biggest frauds Wall Street has ever produced.

  3. Erech Christ Nimrod


    37. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that LOVED us.
    38. For I AM persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
    39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the LOVE of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.

    Thank you LOVELY, Strong Barbara for the Good you have done and are doing. You and your Caring Husband Ray Dalio are Blessings to this world. LOVELY Barbara, you have Spiritually Protected your LOVEABLE Family. Peace.
