In 2015 a major screw up could have come from chasing yield with too much exposure to MLPs. The space has obviously been decimated in 2015. Someone who had 3-5% in MLPs all the way down had a meaningful portfolio drag but with a properly diversified portfolio could easily be pretty close to the market and pretty close can get the job done. The person who heeded one of the countless articles from a couple of years ago suggesting 15-25% in MLPs has a much bigger problem.

The next one is of Big Beach.
And picture number 3 is obviously Ladder 3 which is housed in Lahaina. This was the only truck I saw with the Hawaiian flag in the grill. Some sort of detail like this in the front grill is not an everyday thing but not unheard of either.
