This was a really cool thing. As an individual investor, I believe in iShares from a financial perspective. They are low fee highly efficient ways for individuals to invest wisely. So, when they called me to be in a commercial about iShares I was really excited. The commercial finally made it to YouTube (I stand up at 37 seconds into the video and then walk on a red carpet for a few seconds):
I made this for a dinner with some friends and they loved it. Khir is a traditional dessert from India. This definitely went well as the dessert for chicken masala.
Ingredients for Sweet Potato Khir
1 pinch saffron
8 cups plus 1 tablespoon milk
1/2 cup ghee
2 cups sweet potatoes, finely grated
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 cup sugar
So, yeah, I got a mac. It's nice. But it's missing some fun. So, I added fun.
Seen browsing today.
I see two apparent assumptions in this:
1 - people interested in installing open source bug tracking software are primarily male.
2 - those males, when looking for a hosted project planning software from a Microsoft partner, are best attracted with a semi-nude woman.
Really? So sad. So sad.
There's been some "focused, wry and timely" media examples recently about the old stock market situation. THE BROKERS WITH HANDS ON THEIR FACES BLOG is one good example. I was thinking about the stock market, the bailout plan and one of my personal favorite
wastes of time forms of entertainment: Fail Blog. When...EUREKA!
According to 9news.com IKEA is finally coming to Colorado!
My Past Discussions of IKEA Colorado
I've written about this in the past and become somewhat of a rumor hound on the subject:
- IKEA Store Located in Commerce City, Denver, Colorado
- IKEA in Denver or Boulder or Front Range of Colorado
- Ikea adding store to Denver, Colorado?
- IKEA Fort Collins - 2008?
- ikea store locations in the US
Often the comments on those posts are more interesting than the posts themselves...
I'll post an update comment on Wednesday after the real announcement.
Edit: Ikea Centennial
According to a comment I just received it will be in Centennial, Colorado. Centennial just recently incorporated into a city as expansion has grown south of Denver. I guess this makes sense since that area of colorado (Douglas County, southern Jefferson County) has been the fastest growing area in Colorado and one of the fastest in the nation for the last few years. I imagined they would put it north of Denver because my perception is that IKEA is popular with college students and the CU/CSU combination in Boulder/Fort Collins is the center of our college population.
I'm taking the a list apart 2008 survey of web folks and got to a question about where do I get my health-care.
For the record, I have a high deductible plan through Anthem and an HSA account through 1st Bank (Colorado bank...) and I love it.
