Got woke around 1:30AM by a fire alarm, apparently someone didn't check to make sure their ashtray was all extinguished before they dumped it down the trash chute, or just threw something lit down it. In an odd way that's more satifying than if it was a false alarm or malfunction. Took our time getting back to sleep, so when my phone rang at minutes to 7AM I let it ring to voicemail. Turned out it was Enterprise because the truck was left blocking their gate, locked up and key nowhere to be found. I cal... (...more)

vacuum pick investments start "Finding Hope and Healing" filing In one of the IRA accts, I didn't have enough to meet the minimum balance to buy mutual fund shares, so that pretty much limited me to ETFs if I didn't want to eat a commission fee.

Bracing for innovation: not just for nonprofits Went to bed before 10, alarm at 5:30a to be at St.G at 7 to taxi a volunteer truck driver to FLL Enterprise depot by 8. The drive was patchy rain and would have been miserable if my passenger wasn't such an interesting cat. As we exited 595 onto Fed Hwy, we spotted a rainbow. My take on rainbows is a little more evolved than literal Noah's Ark, but I do believe it at least says something of the Creator's personality that He decorated the universe at all wi... (...more)

Woke feeling fairly refreshed despite having gone to bed late-ish for a school night, and waking flailing before Miss Cupcake's alarm from a dream where I was going to lunch with a couple coworkers and one thought it'd be funny to wave a mosquito hawk or daddy-longlegs in my face. A little light cardio when Miss woke up, shower, coffee/cocoa and rye muffin while I read a little about investing in closed-end mutual funds. I recently discovered a whole financial radio station broadcasting out of Boca, so ... (...more)

Spent the long weekend mostly watching movies (Lilo + Stitch; The Devil's Advocate; Monster) and Sons of Anarchy through s2e12 (of 13). Internet service started dropping bits, stalling Amazon playback, as we started E13. We did get some culling/packing done though.

Long but inconclusive thoughts about the missing link between intention, dayplanning, and follow-through.
