Yeah, I’m in my usual holiday mood.  Watching a Xmas Carol in reverse so it has a happy ending doesn’t even help.  Maybe someone will write a version where Scrooge joins the Ghostbusters and finally kicks those asshole spirits into the next dimension where they belong. Hawaii is no different when it comes to the […]

Is that how it works?  That’s pretty much what I came away with after reading this little blurb on Yahoo: A 737 Credit Rating and Still Turned Down for a Loan Let’s forget the whole “buying a new car” aspect of this and look at the larger picture here.  The person in this article had […]

It’s the first of the month and as usual, the corporate warlords who live and die by schedules and deadlines made some changes. On Tuesday evening two things happened. Firstly, the security guards, a guy and his mother, were fired. Everyone knows this because the guy was apparently fired while walking his beat around the […]
