Dutch Masters

I'm not talking about cigars.

Over the next few days, we plan to visit the major art museums in Amsterdam, Haarlem and The Hague which have collections of the great Dutch Masters of the 17th century. To get the most benefit from this vacation, I listened to a CD course on this subject in preparation from The Teaching Company [ http://www.teach12.com/ ]

And I'm looking forward to some fine Dutch beer. I've also read that Indonesian cuisine is particularly fine in the Netherlands at it was once a Dutch colony. I expect we will have more than one meal of Indonesian food.

Actions

I'll check the numbers for Krypto this morning; if anything needs to be done, I will post a "PS".

PS

I checked and the numbers say to buy some TIPs. Those are still overvalued by a lot, so that recommendation can wait.

Word of the Day

"Philippic" - noun [$10]
Philippic means a bitter verbal attack or denunciation [from the Greek name of Demosthenes' speeches against Philip II of Macedon, and Cicero's against Mark Antony].
Sentence: Obama's philippics against BP accomplish nothing for either combating the spill or to compensate people for losses; they are delivered simply to keep his political ratings up.

Morning men...the IPO market sure has been squirrely, except for CBOE and that was less than 12 million shares.

Do any of you like it ?
