I Can Lift My Head

This is my first case of the flu since 1991 and I am going to get a tattoo on my arm that says "Get Your Flu Shot" so I never have to go through this again. I broke my neck and I wasn't this uncomfortable. My wife says I look terrible, stink, and have the worse dandruff she's ever seen. I figure one more day and I'll be able to get back at it. Unfo …

If You Earn You Should Give

I am not saying give money to the Red Cross or United Way. I am not ever sure how my money is going to be spent at those places. Start locally and move up from there. Sometimes your time can be just as valuable as your money. I guess it depends on how much you give.

Good Info From Options Investor Weekly

We've heard of the band getting back together several times now but I think they really are. When bands reunite they usually don't sound as good or have lost a step but according the this MTV article, they sound as good as ever.

Office Pirates Is One Boring Site

I expected more from Time Inc. They are trying to make a funny Office Space type website but it is more like Dilbert without the humor. They billed the site as business meets frat boy humor yet the site is run by a big company and they don't want to do Frat Boy. I'm sure they were able to sell some ad space based on this proposal but what they forgot is they can't get too dirty nor can they take s …

My Weekly “I Love the Exchanges and Brokers” Post

I love them as much as ever. I look for the brokers to keep moving up, with OXPS leading the pack. I think they are going to hit a new 52 week high in the next couple of days. The exchanges have had incredible volume and the stocks should keep moving up with ISE leading the way. I am going to throw in Celgene ( a biotech) because the stock splits soon and for some crazy reason people still like sp …

Cant We All Just Get Along

I don't know if anyone told Shanni Davis or Chad Hendrick that they are frickin Speedskaters. Who cares? They're just the last guys picked on the hockey team and were too straight for ice dancing. Davis is an immature mommas boy who thinks he's be picked on because he's black when the only reason he's only be picked on because he has the personality of a 6th grader. Hendrick is being a jerk becaus …
