Re: OT: MacMigration

The built in (read only) ftp is great for working with the two Macs, it's the easiest way to move files and folders Finder to Finder, just drag and drop.

Very timely post, speaking as someone who spent a chunk of the morning [more]

"100th Monkey"?

I was stunned this week to see our local news site financial columnist devote his column to espousing SRI. I post this not because he says anything people here don't already know, but because he is not someone I ever would have expected to see [more]

Re: Earnings cavalcade

CLH is on my shopping list for today--lowest valuation in at least the last 5 years for price/sales and price/book, and near low PE, and giving me a TA signal that I like to use for long-term buys. CEO is citing the weather as the reason for their [more]

Re: Natural Grocers (NGVC) Earnings Preview

David,

Nice find on the info at Glassdoor and the ads on Youtube. Ugh--it looks like they haven't updated their marketing campaign since the 50's. It's got the feel of one of those infomercials that play at 2 am.
