My only sound reason for buying a stock is that it is rising in price - Nicolas Darvas
New pics added! Paris and London pics were added from my work trip 3 months ago. I went to Paris/London to test GPRS on the i930 Gemini GSM phones and to drive-test Gemini comparing it with the i2000 World Phone. Also, new pics of Lauren Elizabeth were added. These pictures are from early November. According to Candee's doctor, she's "growing like a weed". Not exactly the term I would use.

Before Thanksgiving, Byron, Sam, and I flew up to Atlanta for the International Attractions and Amusement Parks Association (IAAPA) expo. We met with exhibitors, played all the games, and got ideas for making money. See the pics here. More recently, Nicki had a Christmas party at her house and the pics are here. Thanks again, Nicki, for hosting the party!

My current stock portfolio containing MOT, HLEX, REDF, LYTS, SIGM, and IMMR is hanging in there. I'm trying to follow the Nicolas Darvas system for stock market success described in his book How I Made 2,000,000 in the Stock Market. Another recent book that I really liked was What's So Great About America. Recently, however, I haven't read anything. Any good books out there?

Congratulations to Vijay and Regina for giving birth to Sara Gadad on December 7th. Good luck you two! On a sadder note, Arnie and Ali are deciding to leave Florida for Arizona. We'll miss you guys. Good luck to you as well!
