Monday Stuff

  • Spent over an hour this morning in the dentist chair.  One cavity plus two fillings were cracked.   Numbness finally wore off.   Bleh.  The worse part was that I needed a second shot of Novocain.  This became readily apparent a few seconds into the drilling.  YEOWCH.
  • How do you feel about the way the market closed today?  I think it was a little lackluster especially because we were up more earlier.  Especially on the Nasdaq.  And afterhours, Texas Instruments reported in-line and the stock is down over 3% as I type.  If one is pedal to the metal in volatile stocks, it looks as if things are getting interesting. 
  • I'll sound like a broken record.  Maybe I have too much company for this to play out.  But, I do think that the seasonal pattern of weakness in the summer is going to play out.
  • Thanks to Kim for leaving a voice message and a shout out in the upper right hand corner of the blog!  Got a mic?  Leave a message!
  • Nothing gets the ire of the "left wing" Democrat more than companies making profits.  Especially, if that company is HalliburtonOil giant Halliburton Co. said Monday that strong international demand and a near billion-dollar gain from the separation of KBR helped more than double second-quarter profit and grow revenue by 20%.
  • When you're a software company with a small market share, hackers may decided to leave you alone and go after bigger fish.  But what if your company has been growing like crazy?  Like... AppleThe iPhone and Apple Inc.'s desktop computers may be vulnerable to hackers due to a flaw in their Web browser, according to a security firm, which said it found a way to hack into the iPhone.
  • Teacher punishes girls with pond squats.
  • You know, I'm thinking about outsourcing my lawn care now that I read about Bikini-clad women mow lawns in Memphis
  • What's up with Larry Kudlow and the pinstripes?  C'mon, KLo.
  • Are you ready for some football?  It's closing in.
