Crypto-CreaturesGood morning.  Shares of Tesla Motors topped $500 per share for the first time Friday.  Multiplied by the number of shares, the company is now valued at $90 billion, making it the 2nd-largest automaker by market cap, just behind Volkswagen.

But there’s a striking difference: Tesla sold about 367,500 cars last year, and the German automaker sold just shy of 11 million.  With shares of Tesla more than doubling in the past few months, the move has started to go parabolic.  Shares had gotten oversold into the first half of 2019, but now it looks like the opposite is taking hold.  In turn, this may prove to be the biggest sign yet that the market is getting ahead of itself.

Coffee Crisis — Enough is Enough!

I can’t stands no more….  Caryl & I watched intently the NESPRESSO tv-infomercial recorded the previous evening — like the late-nite adverts for blenders, organic gardens, and swiss army knives.  This info-commercial was on a ‘complete’ Nespresso Machine and Frother… [seen below].

When we really thought about it, we didn’t need, or want to use Pods, Press Espresso, or deal with the Steam-Spitting finger… We only wanted a reliable way to reheat our coffee and heat cold milk for Lattes, and make hot chocolate, and froth our milk for cappuccinos… “Easy yes?”  Actually it was, once we learned the right questions to ask.  [Keeping our ‘microwave free zone’!]

Heading out the door to Bed, Bath & Beyond, coupon in hand, we found the Nespresso Frother held only enough liquid for one cup of coffee; much too small for our coffee drinking demands, and quite difficult to clean for a single or second cup.  Around the corner, we discovered the ideal unit, however ‘much it cost, it wasn’t in stock’.

Vowed to never give up, we decided to go online!  We DID find the unit… placed an order, and will pick it up tomorrow at BEST BUY.

Great day today to REALLY go through the stacks of papers that were in dire need of sorting … threw some away some, filed a lot, and found new homes for large bunches of them.  “Cleared the clutter” is a very nice way of saying that the “work area is now ready.”

Stayed up later than I had planned tonight.  Must quickly get ready for bed … as I have an early start tomorrow!
