Re: He Naj

I am going to be reading Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away by by Rebecca Goldstein during my trip. Might as well start thinking about 2500 years ago when the Greeks were looking to Italy for more wine and olive oil.

Re: Cheating

The fine for messing with the footballs is $25K in the NFL rule book. How that got to be millions for Brady and a million + draft picks for the Pats astounds me.

Beating your wife is definitely the cheaper way to go if you are an NFL [more]

He Naj

You're a smart guy. So what do you say about this supposed built-in-lowball-first-quarter-GDP thingie I have been reading about lately. Supposedly, there is a systemic error in the data.

So....

Sorry I don't have a link, but I saw an article recently wherein Ned Davis went looking for all that sideline cash that will be jumping in soon and give us a top. He couldn't find it in MM funds, M2 or anywhere else.

Re: Commodities

For thee record, I bought some MPC recently and dumped some of my position in YACKX.

Re: The home office

I have a nifty desk in my downstairs rec room with my files and my computer. I look out a window at a small rock garden that squirrels like to bury nuts in. The cats sometimes see the squirrels looking in the window and go berserk.

Curiouser and Curiouser

So, today I get a letter from the IRS asking me for more information about my return. My sad tale, you have already heard.

Re: The Plot Thickens

I access Turbo Tax through Fidelity.

Finally got through to the tax fraud people at Turbo Tax.

The Plot Thickens

I told you about my IRS experience.

Now I receive a letter from Turbo Tax asking me to pay the $29.95 I owe them for that tax return I made where I agreed to pay them out of my refund.

The boat is beautiful. I used to build wooden boats but they were models, not the real thing.

Hi Dropouts

Hi:

What's up?

I am fine. My best friend's wife and my brother-in law both have cancer. My former boss died a few weeks ago. Guess it's the age I am.

Every day above ground is a good one. My cherry tree is about to bloom [more]
