Spring is here 4.20.7

Decent weather in the forecast for the Boston area? It only took some crazy snow storms in the Spring to make you miss the good weather. I'll give it a day before it turns to 50mph gusts and it starts to cloud over.

In other news some crazy copycat at NASA.

Yankees/Sox series starts tonight.

National Marquette day tomorrow. Trying to find a ride to the place.

Cow Joke 4.13.7

A funny joke on how a typical country or company would show ownership of cows.

A TRADITIONAL CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one an buy a bull. Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows. You sell the and retire on the income

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one, an force the other to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised whe the cow drops dead

A FRENCH CORPORATION: You have two cows. You go on strik because you want three cows

A JAPANESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You redesign them s they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twent times the milk. You then create clever cow cartoon images calle Cowkimon(tm) and market them world-wide

A GERMAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You re-engineer the so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves

A BRITISH CORPORATION: You have two cows. Both are mad

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows, but you don't kno where they are. You break for lunch

A RUSSIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You count them an learn you have five cows. You count them again and learn you have 4 cows. You count them again and learn you have 12 cows. You sto counting cows and open another bottle of vodka

You sell three of them t your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by you brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with a associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a ta exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferre via an intermediary to a Cayman Island company secretly owned by th majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to you listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows with an option on one more. Sell one cow to buy a new president of th United States, leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provide with the release. The public buys your bull

NCAA Champions Florida Repeats 4.3.7

A pretty good game last night. I took Florida over Ohio State in a couple of brackets I entered in the office pool. Needless to say I'm happy with the first team to repeat as champs with a little extra money on top of the tax return that came yesterday. The brackets rank in the top 10,000 which is pretty cool and goes to show you that even if you are in the top 99.6%, how many others can claim they are better. I have my work cut out for me come next March.
