A Bunch of Little Stuff...

(1) I've just started working on my taxes and I'm going to be cutting a nice check to the Treasury Department. I locked in some gains in Q4 and I was fortunate that most of these gains were long term. Sooner or later, you're going to pay Uncle Sam for his share of the gains. I better mail out my check soon or I'll get hit with some late payment penalties :(

(2) The condo construction looks like it's going well with a projected completion date of 11/14/07. I'll be interesting to see how close they actually come to the completion date. They have a web site, which updates the construction progress on a monthly basis. So any bets on the project being completed on time? You may have to wait awhile for the results!

(3) I'm sure many people have heard that the Boston Globe accidentally released the names and credit numbers of their home subscribers. Well, I'm one of the unfortunate subscribers, whose credit number is floating around somewhere. They're going to provide a credit report service for a period of one year to their affected customers. I don't think that's enough. I wrote them a nice email informing them of my concerns and even suggested that they credit me one month subscription of the Globe. They actually agreed to give me a month free. I was surprised, but hey, I'll take it.

Ok, that's enough with these little stuff. I just haven't had time to really keep a good tab on the market to make any decisions. Hopefully my next post will be more informative...
