WE knew him as The Big Cheese but..........


So this guy, just like the rest of us was trying to learn how to trade when he wondered into the WoodiesCCIClub.com, LLC. He watched, he followed, he asked questions, he listened...yes he was just like the rest of us. But, then one day it happened, Gio had her mic open (by mistake) and also had taken a CCI setup that didn't work out, (A LOSER) and she said, "OH, FUDGE".

Well that started it, The Big Cheese was off and running and the rest of us would log in two or three times a day just to see what he wrote in the his blog about the WoodiesCCIClub.com, LLC and the moderators, and we would have a good laugh. I never personally thought of it as laughing at the moderators themselves, after all we were all in the same boat. But at how he would write about it, the sense of humor was classic and how he would take a simple little thing and blow it up bigtime.

I heard rumors but as time went by....The Big Cheese became a distance memory until today in the chat room. His name came up.....and his name was Bob Lassiter and here is a couple of links so you can follow along as to what happen to Bob.

Ah, the Big Cheese. I miss him. He was a real SOB (and I mean that in the best way), and he wasn't afraid to say that the emperor had no clothes, or that "you're making my ears bleed!"
Go in peace, big cheese....

If anyone needed a testimonial on the reasons to control diabetes . . . Bob is a good example of what happens when one puts their head in the sand and does not take diabetes seriously.

I don't want to speak ill of the dead but the truth is diabetes can be controlled with effort and self-control and if the Big Cheese controlled his blood sugars we would have him here to day. High Blood sugar is pure poison to the nerves and body organs.

BTW: Type 2 Diabetes can be cured

I followed Bob's various blogs after his expulsion from the wood shack all the way to the bitter end. His brutal honesty about his life was a model for us all. He traded for entertainment (gambling basically) and treated it like a joke in his writings. He played a large part in starting the unraveling of Woodie's con. But when the subject had to do with his life or people he knew he was very serious.

Even though he’s been gone for over a year I think of him from time to time and miss his brilliant writing that would touch me.

Thanks Bob

God, I still remember reading the Big Cheese blog. It was hilarious. And his over the top comments were classic. I had a good laugh. I think he was also on ET as well. RIP.
