Both Sides of the Table

I’ve seen friends (and family members) lose much of their savings that way over the years because “Black Swans” happen and in 1987, 2001, 2003 & 2008 (just to name a few from my memory) huge market gyrations caused much financial distress to people seeking short-term gains. They reminded me that the market is now higher than 2008 when it crashed (note: it’s also higher than it was in 1968, 1988 and 2003 – all of these are irrelevant).

While it certainly was not perfect (what is perfect?), it paved the way for a lot of progress in making email a workable medium for consumers and businesses.

I started volunteering at the Downtown Boathouse in 2003 and helped form the Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse in 2010. Last night, while I was speaking on a panel about food entrepreneurship, my cellphone suddenly lit up with frantic texts asking if I was ok. Something about some kayaks on the Hudson and a crash.

She had flower sleeves of spectacular color. Seven Nation Army was playing. I never really thought much of tattoos. My dad has two on his arms and, after 50 plus years, they've faded quite a bit, blurring at the edges. He doesn't like showing them and seems to regret getting them.
