Everyone wants to open a bar. Financially it is one of the worst investments you could ever make, but the cool factor is off the charts. If you really want to make money in the saloon industry I suggest the "money on the wall" theme

Union Oyster House, the oldest restaurant in continuous service in the U.S. (Since 1826. From Sippican)

By the way, my favorite local restaurant, Mariscos El Tío's, which serves wonderful authentic Mexican food, had been discovered on the internet! In the last 6 months I invited many guests & friends to visit its unusual & artistic grounds, and among them was Seattle Realtor-blogger Marlow Harris and her family. Marlow posted recently a detailed photo story about the owner Martin Sanchez’s Folk Art shrine and within a few days her story spread around the intertubes, including mentions on 2Boings, Neatorama and many other blogs. I only hope that the lines at Tio’s Tacos won’t get too long now…

Manejo de Estres

Nerd headquarters. You can actually take a Nerd Tour of Silicon Valley, and visit such places as Hewlett Packard's Founding Garage

The meeting is over at “I Can Has Cheezburger”

A man owned a small farm in Maine. The IRS claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to interview him.

"I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them," demanded the agent.

"Well", replied the farmer, "There's my farm hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 per week plus free room and board.

Then there's the half-wit who works here about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes $10 per week, and I buy him a bottle of whiskey every Saturday night."

"That's the guy I want to talk to - the half-wit," says the agent.

"That would be me," replied the farmer.

Looking for Charles (“Chuck”) Greer

Do you know Charles Greer, (known as “Chuck”), previously of Palm Desert, California? He was a friend I associated with about 15 years ago, and whose whereabouts I since lost.

I’d like to get in touch with him again. If you know where he can be found today, please ask him to call or email me. My contact information is on “about” page above.

Thank you.
