An excellent read:
“In order to ensure that this common speculation hazard doesn’t crush you, there are crucial steps to take so you not only survive but thrive as a speculator. They involve emotional steeling, position-limited portfolio construction, mechanical profit and loss management, and a carefully cultivated understanding of the true random nature of the tactical markets.”
Today’s post is designed to receive a bit of feedback. I believe there are around 35 people that are following this blog’s rss feed.
I’d love to get a comment from those who follow along as opposed to those that stumble in through search engine traffic.
Even just a “hello!” would make me smile.
"Doctor Search provides information about individual physicians, including practice address, telephone number, qualifications, etc., and whether they are accepting new patients."
Netvibes is turning into one of my favourite hangouts. I predict even bigger things just around the corner for them.
Read more about them on TechCrunch.
"NetVibes has also released an API that enables the development on new plug-ins (more than 74 already present). 8 new were added since yesterday and some very interesting are on the way (video, netflix, myspace)"
One thing I think would be AWESOME would be if someone created a wordpress.com plug in for Netvibes.
Update: Oh yeah, I almost forgot – it NEEDS a PANDORA plug-in too!!! Then I'll never leave!

I'd like to share a few simple rules for maintaining sanity in the 9-5 workplace.
Don't start the day with coffee.
Once it is 10:30 take your 15 minute break and drink a coffee. It will help you make it to lunch.
DO NOT take lunch at noon. That is too early and makes the day stretch out for too long.
Take lunch between 1-2:30. DO NOT eat lunch at your desk. ESPECIALLY in the summer time. GET out of the office and forget about work and go for a walk.
If you take lunch at 2 and your 15 minute afternoon break you will be back at 3 and then you have two hours before hometime. Perfect.
Bring some snacks – yogurt, apple, carrot sticks, rice crackers, drink lots of water, hard boiled egg, nuts…
