I saw something this morning that I have never seen. As any hunter knows, when one hears a large flock of noisy crows moving from tree to tree, chances are they have found a hawk or owl which that are hazing and having great fun doing so. I always wondered why the hawk didn’t go after them and make an example out of one of them. Well, that’s what I saw today. I saw a couple of crows fleeing across the street and this Cooper’s hawk was swooping down after them. The crows fled quickly back across the street lit in a tree then fled again because here came this hawk who took possession of the same branch then leaped off again after his quarry. Apparently, the hawk had crow on the menu for today. They disappeared down the block, going from tree to tree, the crows complaining loudly. For my part I despise all the kibitzers in this world who criticize but never do anything themselves. My sympathy is with the hawk. Let them eat crow.

 

Best regards,

One should see a jump in street prices which have not caught up with these sudden increases.

 

Forbes came out with its 400 richest list in the USA. I looked in vain for my name on the list. I guess I will just have to keep working. Bill Gates, $54 Billion, Warren Buffet 2nd with $45 Billion topped the list. There were a lot of NFL owners, computer inventors, Amazon, Google, Cargill, Campbell Soup, WalMart types etc. that have been on there for years. The new rich are Face book guys. This guy Mark Zuckerman is only 26 and worth about $6.9 billion, tied with James Goodnight of SAS. Zuckerman is busy whining about this movie coming out this fall about the rise of Face book and how it portrays him in a bad light. Hey, give me the $6 billion and I will make my own movie about Face book and I will come off looking like Charleston Hesston in Moses and the Ten Commandments.

The issue was full of ultra expensive home ads, cars, yachts and personal jets. I guess this issue was aimed at the 400 richest people who will read the article to see where they are on the list and they might decide to buy the new yacht or Honda jet. Me, I can’t afford the poker stakes.

 

Enjoy your week,

We installed our new RISC server yesterday. The old one was 11 years old. The installation went off without a hitch though it took 5 ½ hours instead of the 3 promised. The new one is much faster. The joke is that it can make mistakes 10 times faster than the old one. It has 2 main drives and a third backup drive with RAID which means it is suppose to mirror image the first two and kick in if one of them fail. Then I still have to take a backup tape home each night in case of fire. We also use Mozypro off site for backups, data only. It is the same idea as with insurance, ‘How much do you need.’ The question I always hear is ‘What would hurt you’ and ‘What would kill you (put you out of business). Some of these insurance guys try to worry you into covering everything. ‘Your truck is going down the road and it is hit by a satellite falling out of orbit. How worried are you about that?” If you are in business, you make those kinds of gambles every day. What is reasonable risk for the return? I cover the normal probable risk and then add an umbrella.

 

Have a good day,

 

-Larry

Good morning,

 

The Weather Gods, having forgotten how to make it rain, are now practicing until they get it down pat. My daughter at UNC-Wilmington reports that they received over 10 inches yesterday. The Campus is flooded. Several coeds wading through water ended up with water up to their waist and had to swim out of it. One men’s dorm was flooded on the ground floor ruining some electronic equipment. Fish have floated out of the pond and are swimming around in the amphitheatre. They were trying to catch them and put them back in the pond. Fifteen MORE inches are expected by Friday. That is a lot of water.

 

Gasoline prices are down 1.6 cents today. Diesel fuel at the average rack in Selma is unchanged. Prices are:
