Not MY Words - Spring Cleaning

"A couple of hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. Never leave that till tomorrow, he said, which you can do today. This is the man who discovered electricity. You think more people would listen to what he had to say. I don't know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I'd have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you're wrong? What if you're making a mistake you can't undo? The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can't pretend we hadn't been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin really meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying."

Come Back tomorrow to see where this quote is from

Chrsitmas Carolers at the Mall

That's right. And I don't mean they had a session of carolers inside the mall performing. No, there were four Christmas Carolers walking around the Macy's department store aisles singing carols at the Roosevelt Field Mall. As Linus stated in the Peanuts A Charlie Brown Christmas , "Christmas is too commercial". But what can you expect from a mall with Valet parking.

Scott Adam's Blogs

That's Right. How cool is that, the Dilbert Man himself!

I especially love this recent post about the recent suicide bomber story.

Unfair Stereotypes

I’m sick of all the stereotypes found in the news. Maybe you heard the story about the four suicide bombers who planned an attack in Jordan. The three males killed mostly other Muslims. Obviously the men were looking for Israel and refused to stop and ask for directions. And the one woman in the group apparently couldn’t figure out how to operate her suicide belt.

I’m just wondering, how many women heard that story on the news and thought “Crap. Why did it have to be the woman who couldn’t blow herself up?”

No Free Time

Lately I have been wondering what I do with my time. Here is an enlightening breakdown. Turns out I spend 75% of my time on work related activity and sleeping. No wonder why it feels like I have no free time.

Can the Stock Market Boom Without Cooling Real Estate - Merger and Divestiture Craze

What is it with all the Mergers lately? Ebay buys skype. Ford sells off Hertz. Gillette gets eaten by P&G. Is this a sign of an economic recovery. Maybe its too early to tell.

On the Housing Market

Whats fueling real estate? How bout that 250k tax free gain on property if the property is your primary residence of more than two years if you file alone or 500k if you file jointly. Then there is the no taxes on gains for properties that are sold and flipped with the proceeds being moved into similar investments.

Can the stock market rebound without housing prices tanking. Only time will tell.

Elliots Awesome Site - The Pedagogic Loggings

My long time friend has a great site, The Pedagogic Loggings of "L" Pimpo, Esq. Why do I love this site and his writing. Well despite the fact that the guy is so dam funny and a grear friend of mine , he writes so well. He has this ability to write just enough about a story to convey emotion and detail which draw the reader in allowing one to relive what he experiences. It seems simple, but you try it. Easy to right about a new product or an event, but try writing about how finding out your family member is ill makes you feel. That is a whole other story. Not to mention his kick ass background of an arm on fire. I wonder if there is any heavy writer's symbolism attached to that.
