The Next Ten Years…

Few of us are thinking of the next TEN years. It’s hard not to get excited and short term distracted with Twitter, Groupon and Facebook adding billions in value as private companies in just a few years. They did this amidst a financial collapse and repapering. All I need/want are healthy kids, a cure for …

The United States…Poverty Machine?

I was reading another great Gregor Macdonald post over the weekend entitled ‘Poverty Soars in California.’ I live on an island, by a navy base so I don’t see the poverty that Gregor talks about, but I see it in the California local news every day. The market has been rising, but it feels like …

I have long stopped worrying or complaining.  I read, I write, I learn, …

$LULU $LULU $LULU

$LULU is now one of Oprah’s new fangled thingies. Not to be mean, but if LULU can make Oprah’s behind look special…my tagline the ‘Facebook of Ladie’s Behind’s’ is almost at hand. Most will argue that LULU is too expensive, they have a $2.5 billion market cap, the stock has run from $4 to $50 …
