Weekend Update

Taking our daughter to get her first haircut was a memorable experience. Funny how life's little pleasures mean the most. We also took her to see The Incredibles. Great movie. Unbelievable graphics. Just phenomenal. Three-quarters into the movie...the entire audience is silent...just totally absorbed into the movie. Don't you just love those movies where you get so into forget you're at the movies? So, go see The Incredibles...two thumbs up!

Here's some interesting reads from this weekend:

I really like Kathy White's approach in working with universities. It's amazing how many outstanding programmers are being produced from America's rural universities. Yet, very few companies are paying attention. Read on...

  • Donald Luskin's take on the falling U.S. Dollar. Claims Warren Buffett doesn't know what he's doing. Greenspan doesn't either. And of course, he knows all. When I read articles like this I always ask...what was the point of writing it? Trying to prove something Donald? Read on...
Daily System Updates
Current open system positions:
  • CVT long with current profit of 0.79%.
Weekly System Updates
Current open system positions:
  • 1 QQQ long with current profit of 1.87%;
As I've mentioned in previous posts...I do have other weekly system positions that I purchased back last week. But, I've decided not to share them. Most of those positions were triggered several months ago. I've decided to only share the positions triggered since I've started this blog.

Have a great week!
