Response to Tansy_Gold (Original post)

110. Morning Marketeers......

and lurkers. I arrived in Houston late last night (11:30) and was up and on my way to work at 6:30 am.

The graduation went well. We have a newly minted grad in the family with a Major in Sound Technology and a minor in Math and Science. She had an amazing performance prior to graduation. Several of her professors came in to watch it and when they found out we were family, they told us she was one of the best students they ever had and her work was amazing (she actually invented a technique to transform movement into sound. The dancer was wired up and her dance movements generated sound. It really was amazing. They are wanting her to go to grad school, but it is a bit too early for her to think about that.

And of course, we ate too much, drank way too much and had a great time. I forget sometimes how beautiful California is. The flowers were in bloom; the wisteria, the lavender, and the lilacs. Of course I am home sneezing my head off, but it was worth it. I only had time to go to the Griffith Park Observatory (closed of course) and the Grauman's Chinese Theatre, but it was fun. I also saw The Dictator. My daughter's boyfriend just finished the 3D work for the Men in Black-so I can't wait to see that.

Between the lack of sleep and the other activities...I am flying low today, but I should be recovered by tomorrow.

Oh, a I actually watched some tv...CNBC and they were caring on and on about the FaceBook IPO flap. It was so funny watching them foam at the mouth-esp. Cramer. Those folks are so removed from reality as to be a joke. I also got to watch RT and get the real news about the goings on in Chicago. I didn't see much US news to know their spin on the numbers, but it seems the authorities in Chicago were surprised by the numbers and some of the arrested protesters said they were set up, and frankly I have a tendency to believe them.

Happy hunting and watch out for the bears.
