Went to the BB’s Jazz, Blues and Soup at 700 South Broadway, which is quite a blast. This is my first time to a Jazz bar, although I have listened to the Jazz on NPR in the Sunday evenings for a long time. I thought about going to New Orleans, which is the birth place […]
I loaded some Heelys HLYS stocks at its IPO yesterday: pulled the trigger a little early and I am under water for now. Since I can’t do anything about the day to day stock price, I decided to check out it in the real world…Please note this is by no means a substitute for the fundamental […]
I came back to St. Louis today. The weekend San Jose trip was great; both the weather and everything else. I got to see the Montery Bay, which includes 17 miles drive and world famous Pebble beach (golf course). Not to mention the Chinese food etc. As a guy in the tech industry, I always have […]
We had worst snow storm in my 6+ years stay in St. Louis. The thing makes life harder is the “sleeze”, or ice rain (instead of the snow). It freeze the car windows and doors quickly. I spent about one hour for normal 15 to 20 communte from work to home. This morning I spent […]
I heard about this 80-20 rule from a friend a while ago. It says “we spend 20% of our effort to accomplish 80% of the things; and then we spend remaining 80% of the time & effort to complete the remaining 20%…” I think that pretty well summerize what I was doing at my work […]
I am watching the annual Thanksgiving parade in downtown St. Louis (from TV). The weather here is great. I went to Panera Bread and the newspaper is already gone (hint: people are gettting the newspaper ad. and do research about tomorrow’s shopping deals now). Of course you can get the electronic version from dealsea.com nowadays. Seriously, I […]
Normally I had it in a “to-go” cup. This is the first time they put it in the glass cup.
Diwali is the most important festival in India. I went to the Indian students Diwali party here at Washington Univ, Olin school of business. This is the second time I went to the Diwali: the first one was 7 years ago (1999) when I was in graduate school at Rolla. I like the enthusiasm Indian students […]
As promised I put some of the photos I took last night at Jim Talent election party. It’s interesting to see some young people (high school, college) to show up. The McLaskill photo was taken at my home TV.
By now I think most people are happy with the election being over. At least we don’t have to bear with the silly ads on the TV any more. While I am not a political junkie, I went to the Jim Talent’s US senate re-election party in Frontenac last night. I figured rather than watching the TV […]
