January 3, 2012 at 9:38 am | blabbing, business.

I have been a user of paper planners for something like 15 years. Each year I would get a new set of pages and each year I would use them a little less. I had been using theĀ franklin planner for the whole time so the $50 a year for the pages and refills was starting… Read more »

Finance should be a required course in High School

November 12, 2009 at 12:32 pm | blabbing, business.

How did so many Americans get into home loans and mortgages that were going to blow up in their faces? Why are so many Americans in so much debt, yet they keep spending?

I started writing about the Yahoo!, Carl Icahn tug of war a while back but I just couldn’t keep up. It seemed like everyday there was some new twist or some new turn. I decided it was easier to wait until the dust settled, if it ever did, and see what happened. So as of… Read more »

Energy Moon Shot

July 18, 2008 at 1:45 pm | blabbing, business.

Former vice president Al Gore has layed down “the green gauntlet” (kinda silly way to put it) to put America on the track to energy independence. I have been blabbing at people for years about this. Get a beer in me and ask me about energy, and I will spill out over the sides talking… Read more »
