Buy Facebook

If Facebook pulls back this morning, buy it.

It reported last night. Earnings were stunning.

Zuck is fixing Facebook to encourage “engaging and building relationships” and to stop hurting people’s bad thoughts with fake news, etc.

Hence there is a fear that time on Facebook will drop by 5% and Facebook’s ad revenue — its lifeblood — will drop.

I listened to last night hour-long earnings webcast. I could go into a long analysis. Suffice, this is one fantastic company, focused on improving its user experiences and improving how advertisers can sell more effectively.  You should hear about all the new tools. Fantastic stuff.

Don’t believe me? Go listen to the webcast. Here are a couple of slides from last night.

This is what a cockroach stock looks like. From today’s Wall Street Journal:


The flu is bad. You can die.

+ Get a flu vaccine.

+ Wash your hands. Don’t touch your eyes.

+ Run from sick people. If someone coughs, change your airline seat instantly.

+ Don’t touch dirty things — like airline trays and airline seat pockets.

+ If you get the flu, take the antiviral drugs your doctor prescribes. They’re different to antibiotics.

Flu symptoms are awful. They include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people also may have vomiting and diarrhea. People may be infected with the flu, and have respiratory symptoms without a fever.

I got all this from the CDC’s web site.

Mondaine’s desperation

For $235 you can now buy a wall clock whose time you can change with your iPhone.


For much much less you can buy a clock which adjusts itself.

This one is only $24.71 and works in most places, including my New York office. Click here. 

Super Bowl Tickets

I know it’s late notice, but a friend of  mine has two tickets for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis, MN at the new U. S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, February 4th. That this Sunday.

They are box seats and he paid $3,500 per ticket, which includes the ride to and from the airport, lunch, dinner, a $400.00 bar tab and a pass to the winners locker room after the game.

What he didn’t realize when he bought them last year was that it’s on the same day as his wedding.  If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place.

It’s at St. Paul’s Church at 3 p.m.  Her name is Ashley.  She’s 5’4″, about 115 pounds, a good cook, loves to fish and hunt and will clean your truck.  She’ll be the one in the white dress.

Harry Newton. It’s getting warmer in New York. Almost 40. Better than yesterday’s 18. Today is biking weather.
