London

Mrs. B and I go to London tomorrow for about a week. There will be no new blog post until Tuesday, May 5. I need some culture and have planned visits to the British Museum, National Gallery, Tate Gallery and Wallace Collection, among others. The British Museum is easily worth two days or more to see the antiquities, which will complement my recent CD courses on the ancient cultures of Egypt, Sumeria, Babylon, Assyria, Greece and Rome.

I see we get to travel while the world panics on this swine flu fears. What is it about modern society that seeks to panic ? We lived through SARS, bird flu and now a reprise of swine flu. Of course precautions should be taken. But a panic ?

Beefers are slinging around preplanned shorts to try to create some more fear and bag a few dollars for their pockets.

Maybe I'll get the pullback I've been awaiting to deploy my new capital.

Word of the Day

"Enclitic" - adjective & noun [$10] Grammatical, from by language studies
Enclititc means (adjective, of a word) pronounced with so little emphasis that it forms part of the preceeding word; (noun) such a word, as the 'not' in 'cannot'.
Sentence: Grammatical endings in many languages arise from separate words indicating grammar becoming enclitics over long periods of time.

Le Mot du Jour

"Pagaille" - noun, feminine (variant spelling pagaïe)
Pagaille means mess, shambles; chaos. This is a polite alternative to the word in Friday's translation of FUBAR - see comments. Pagaille complète means screw-up.
La Phrase: Cette panique de grippe porscine sera une pagaille complète.
Sentence: This swine flu panic will be a screw-up.

are you going to hop over to France and test your new skills Bunkerman?

Bunkerman said...

not going to France - just a week. I'd like to first test my skills in Quebec later this year.

Bunkerman said...

the problem with guest blogging is I'd have to give out my password - you can imagine the problems that might cause if someone could impersonate me.

Bunkerman said...

looks like I don't get my dip today. Oh well.

Spin-em said...

Waiting for a pullback to deploy new skim

Bunkerman said...

fwiw, Obama Fund is +20% ytd. Should have been better but I barged in in early Jan.

Frosty said...

Bunkerman said...

yes, plus a few extras ;)

with four dogs, I have plenty of poop.

Got a small squad of ex-Blackwater mercenaries, too, in case the passive measures don't keep 'em out.

Bud said...

huh ?? you hired mercenaries to protect the bunker ? from what..........no one is gonna be there


how do you feed the dogs ?

Bunkerman said...

What fool would leave his armory & base unguarded ? Sheesh ...


Kelpies go to sheep herding school; terriers to a private home - friend of Mrs. B.

Bunkerman said...

Spin-em said...

Live long and prosper Marko!!

Frosty said...

I don't think so

mfl59 said...

Frosty said...

Bud MIA...him and his paki friends spreading the pigflu and shorting futures...nonono time for bs...die westworld die.

Spin wants to know your yhoo hcp on the monkey bars

mern said...

all i have to say is this being sober crap is BORING!!!!!!!

with that said, if i continue to live like this, i wont even need to go back to work.

my nut is a grand maybe less. LOL

i dont eat much. all vices gone. cable and dog food r my biggest expenses.

im looking into some popular franchises, its a maybe. at least ive owned my own business and know what i liked and didnt.

i may just become a modern day sam malone and buy a beef o bradys. hell i practically kept one in business all by myself for 3 years. i dont know though. young waitresses and beer. i dont know if i cud handle on that and not go down the shitter.

the job market is basically horrific. i cant even get an interview. still not a bid on my house, not 1.

been playing NVAX (yes i hit the ole crack pipe). took a mark at the open, will look to add, stop near mondays low.

DNDN going to 10, but will it hit 50 first?

time to buy SLV in the IRA? i think so, for the long term, ie years.

Frosty said...

atta boy mern...I knew you would be back...welcome home bro.

mikey said...

hi mern

"just when i thought i was out...they pull me back in"

Spin-em said...

good luck merny!!!...no Sam Malone...its real work

mern said...

its not the work im afraid of. i dont think i should be around beer for moons..........

dont really miss it, but ive taken myself out of the element.

sixers and phillies arent nearly as fun to watch.

maybe i can apply to be in the starting rotation. u just need an ERA of 8, with those bats, and you could win 20 games.

i love watching guys trip over a blade of grass and get hurt, like hamels.

mern said...

i forget do i add to the NVAX here?

Frosty said...

Mern I thought you were a big old bear...your confusing me.

Frosty said...

ooohhh...pitch in the dirt...I got it...strike one.

mern said...

what does being bullish or bearish have to do with POS high beta hype deals?

u put any DNDN out yet?

Frosty said...

DNDN long from buys 16.50 and 17...sold most near 22, still have a marker on the sheets.

mern said...

do u know what percentage is short?

can u even get a borrow.

im just flipping an IRA.

my munis ripped this past month, now im green since i put the money there, 13 months ago. up about 2.3% net, but that includes the dividends.

Frosty said...

no current stats DNDN short, was 19.75 short ratio, but that is long gone...everyone that covers has upgraded range 25-38...could pick up some new coverage...wouldn't want to see it trade under 19.75.

mikey said...

does anyone have the T2108 number, please ?

maverick said...

T2108 91.68

mikey said...

thanks mav

Frosty said...

Frosty said...

Bunkerman said...

back. I read in London that "Warren" reads this blog - à propos stock buybacks being a waste of money.

I guess I can call him Warren now that he's a reader.

;)

Nice to see market up - Obama Fund must be roaring.

Hmmm .... maybe revisit "buy & hold" ? Perhaps it will work for a few years now.

Frosty said...

hey Mrs B...hope ya had a good time...bunky pop for the 5 star I assume...hope his rep didn't keep you from tea with the queen...welcome home.
