This article from CNN states that best selling author Alexandra Penney has fallen victim the the Madoff-Ponzi scheme debacle.  

Very sad, but, for those of us who can learn from this remember diversification means not putting all your eggs in one basket.  The stock market, for example, is one basket.  CD’s are a basket.  Your house is a basket.  Your savings account is a basket.  

On Amazon, here is a link to Penney’s books.

Let’s all wish her the best.    Hmmmmm, buy one or more of her books, lets help out!
