So what happened between Friday and Monday?


Money, money money.

“ It was mayhem at the stock market today. S&P 500 and Dow Jones went down while gold price per ounce went up. US markets today fell on fears of financial crisis in the Eurozone and the credit rating downgrade in the US, but not quite as much as was being feared.”

In terms I understand it’s like everyone got fricken really nervous. It was like saying you had a bomb in your sneaker at the airport. Everyone got nervous and started devaluing companies stocks.

My friend Peter said it best when he mentioned “what made Ford stock less valuable other then panic?”

The answer is nothing. When did we become Greece? Does it suddenly say United Greece of America? Are we so stupid to let ourselves default? Thank you China for scolding the USA and saying such nice things about our credit rating. Hey China, I would be saying good things if you want your money back. Since your our biggest Capital one bill I’d keep it on the down low.

Yes today the markets tumbled a bit. It will rebound, tomorrow might be a great day to buy stock in fact.

In China there is an expression Wei-Chi (crisis) which translates into “danger plus opportunity” …

Google+ my thoughts, not that you care.


Google+ is catching on and I admit to being a habitual user. I won’t post pictures of my kids on it ever, and I am not certain I will continue using google+ past Movember. Here are my thoughts about it.

It reminds me of buzz but with better sharing. Its more like Twitter then it is Facebook. You can spark up conversations and get feedback.Unfortunately for me I am boring and uninteresting and nobody cares what I think enough to even comment. This is both a blessing and a curse.

Bruce Garber was hanging out the other day and I joined in, that was cool, and we talked face to face and got caught up. Bruce also showed me the video share capabilities. That was cool. The problem is I really don’t like or trust youtube as a video platform. I send clients to vimeo. I think of youtube as hit or miss video. It’s a great video platform for people with accutely short attention spans. I put qik videos on youtube but thats about it.

Google+ reunited me with lots of people that just would not engage with me on facebook. I’m not sure they will engage me here either. I just find it curious that they re-added me. Was it courtesy? or were they missing not communicating with me?

I read an article this week that stated that a majority (75%) of all google+ users are a male geeks, 20% were women ( Geek or not) and 5 percent were something else or Not committed either way.

This is one of those blog posts that does not end itself, Until now.

A very Hot summer poem

What is this, if not passion
The feeling of something unusual
Waiting to be caressed, wanting to explode,
What if I get that heavenly touch
For which my body has been aching
Will I remain what I am
Or will the entwining of the bodies
Lead me to something ethereal
I am confused, do not know how to react
But what I know is that I yearn for that touch
A soothing touch of caress
And a wild sensation of fulfillment.

I adore the woman who sent this.
