My goal in life is to fill my family’s passports with stamps, creating buckets of memories along the way. You’ll find me writing about realistic ways for normal people to travel the world, whether you’re on a budget or enjoy luxury.

David Update

Don’t you love it when doctors agree? David is feeling much better. The chest pain has resided, and he is noticeably more animated. But his doctors can’t agree on what ails him. The pulmonologist and infectious disease specialist both agree on a rare strain…

Poker Friends in The Money

I have two friends who had significant cashes yesterday in poker tournaments. Neither did as well as they wanted, but both achievements are very notable. First, Matt Matros finished 7th at the WPT North American Championship in Niagara Falls. The tournament had 454 entries,…

3rd (and final) Presidential debate

I really wish the candidates would agree to more debates. The standard 3 really doesn’t cut it for me, and 1 VP debate isn’t enough either. Barack Obama and John McCain met at Hofstra University last night. I think Bob Schieffer did a pretty…

Wow, what a Monday?

Biggest one-day gain in Dow history. Just when I think I have things figured out, tomorrow will be a completely different day with the bond markets re-opened. On a separate note, here’s a good article on Apple. I’ve been an Apple guy for about…
