Squirrel with a lollipop!

Early Sunday morning Stacy and I took a walk to the Doyle Street Cafe for breakfast.   I never leave home without my camera,  so I was able to catch this crazy critter chowing down on an orange lollipop!  I wasn’t sure how well the photos would come out because I literally chased him up the telephone pole to get this photo.  I was like the animal paparazzi!  It’s a good thing I didn’t move to Southern California 😉


Tiger Woods in my Economics Text

The fact that I’m taking time out of studying for my final exam… to blog about something I just read in my Economics textbook  tells me two things.   I’ve been spending way too much time keeping up with modern media and way too much time reading my Economics text.

Right now, I’m reading ch.3 of the Principles of Economics by Gregory Mankiw.  As far as textbooks go, this one isn’t bad… considering the subject matter.  The author always cracks me up with his examples and analogies.  Today, I almost choked on my own saliva when I read the following:

I don’t know why, but I just got a kick out of it.  This text was written in 2007, and it’s almost as though the author is foreshadowing things to come for Tiger.  “Most likely,  he is talented at other activities too. ”  I realize the media has already beaten this Tiger thing to a pulp… but   seriously… “drive and sink a putt in a way that most casual golfers only dream” – and the best yet – “just because he can mow is lawn fast, does this mean he should?

Now that is just fun for the whole family to enjoy! 🙂

Happy Tuesday!

Trying out SocialDomainers.com

SocialDomainers.com

Niche social networking for domainers?  Really?  Heck yeah! I  just signed up to try out SocialDomainers.com.  They are promising to give away a FREE iPad to the 1000th member!  I thought that was an incredible bonus… since I would have signed up anyway!  Needless to say, I am not the owner of a new iPad.  The good news is… you still have a chance to be the 1000th member!   The site is still fairly new,  but I’m looking forward to see if it turns out to be a hopping social networking hub for domainers!  Good luck SocialDomainers.com!

Zomee.com & others – Up for auction at Ebay.com

I have several auctions up for sale at Ebay.com.  I am still in the process of liquidating my portfolio… so it’s possible, if you are paying attention that you could grab yourself some really great investment quality purchases.  I’m not letting things go cheap beacause I think they suck…  I just need to let go.  I can’t afford to keep renewing them year after year, and frankly, I don’t have as much time as I used to to monitor a sizable portfolio.  With that said… take advantage of my liquidation.

Here’s what’s on the block this week.  Just click the specially designed logo to go right to the Ebay auction!
