All That Glitters

April 28th, 2010 · No Comments

Long before I became a stockbroker, I was interested in the markets.  And thankfully I had a grandfather who grew up during the Great Depression and worked as an engineer.  When he retired, he focused his energies on learning the stockmarket.  He sent me a letter when I was a kid once, and I eventually [...]

There’s an old story about a guy walking out of a warehouse with a wheelbarrow filled with junk.  Thinking that the guy is trying to steal something, the guard goes through all the items in the wheelbarrow but can’t find anything, so he lets him pass.  The next day the guy is back and the [...]

New Blog, Just Next Door!

January 14th, 2010 · No Comments

Love Me or Hate Me

And I do mean those literally.
As I’ve written before, I’m passing time by coaching golf at my old high school.  Each season-boys and girls-lasts about 3 months from when we start practicing to when the playoffs end.  It keeps me busy during spring and fall as I get to be on the golf course for [...]

The nearest Ben and Jerry’s is about a 40 minute drive. Given that tomorrow is Earth Day, I don’t think spending 4 gallons of gas for a cone would be a good idea. 
However, I do feel slightly cheated.  Today was the last match of the boy’s golf season.  I only found out today that [...]

Heh, awesome

I’ve bought a copy for 2 bucks in Mumbai and later donated it to the library at InterAmercano in Brazil.  My copy is sitting on my bookshelf at home.  At 1100 pages or so, I’m still trying to figure out how anyone can photocopy this tome that cheaply.  Even so, in the States I think [...]
