Live Video For Questions To Sarah Palin

Category: Opinion,Technology — jerry @ 5:30 am

Frustrated with the inability to get answers to questions from Ms. Palin, some folks put up a billboard across from a rally she had in Los Angeles. You could text messages to the billboard. I’m pretty sure, however, that they remain unanswered:

Stock Pick–Oct. 24, 2008

Category: Money & Investments — jerry @ 11:07 am

This pick is coming a little sooner than usual.

Ordinarily, I would have waited until next week to give you the tri-weekly selection, but since I’m leaving for Japan tomorrow (for about 2 1/2 weeks) this is my farewell gift.

I’m going with Perini Corporation (PCR)–and not just because that is how they pronounce our beloved Nebraska Cornhusker football coach’s name in Japan.

They seem to have good fundamentals, and as I researched it a bit I found an article at the FORBES site indicating that a number of the other Marketocracy gurus are buying the stock.  So I guess this time I’m a sheep and not a shepherd.

Anyway, that’s my pick.  Good luck!

I’m Fleeing The Country Until After The Election

Category: Travel — jerry @ 5:50 am

With what’s left of my retirement, I’m leaving tomorrow for a couple of weeks in Japan–where my youngest son is going to school.

I’ve already voted.

I actually already have blog items to be automatically posted for every day until I get back on or about November 11th.

I should be able to access my Twitter account from time to time to recount my adventures.

My first adventure was trying to get a hotel room in Kyoto for five days while Cody and I are on the road.  (I had no problem getting a room for a week in Tokyo itself).  I ended up finding a nervous-makingly cheap place run by, of all places, the Greenpeace organization.  Save the Whales, dude!

It was either that or sleep on a bench in a public park.  Not sure what is going on in Kyoto that week…

Sayonara!

Apparently, this is today’s “viral video” and it is pretty amusing. Amazing what they can do with digital effects these days:
