Wildcat

Not the feline variety nor the oil version.  Our version is Ally Hoff our summer intern.  Ally is a native of Norfolk and is currently enrolled in the financial planning curriculum at Kansas State University-which of course uses the Wildcat as their mascot. It appears summer has landed with the 90 plus degree temperatures and of course a fair amount of wind in Northeast Nebraska.  Speaking of wind, we are in an election year which of course can make things ‘wild’

My Space/Our Space

Not to be confused with the social networking site or claims to the universe, today it means six feet.  This is the accepted amount of ‘socially acceptable distance’ as prescribed for best practices during the days, nights, weeks, and now months of COVID -19. We thought we would give an update as to our practices during this ‘outbreak’ all the while, hoping for ‘break-out’ soon. We have remained on the job throughout the pandemic.  We did r

What, Me Worry?

You may have heard or seen that phrase associated with Mad Magazine in the past, coupled with their freckle faced character Alfred E. Neuman.  Mort Drucker who recently passed away had provided his cartoonist skills to many of the magazine’s stories.  For those of you who are seventies buffs, he also created the poster for ‘American Graffiti’ the movie from George Lucas back in the day.  The magazine of course was and is known for satirical humor and humorous por

How deep is the ocean?

The average depth of the ocean according to NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Assn.) is about 12,100 feet with the deepest part about 36,000 feet.How deep is a market decline? From JP Morgan, the average decline is about 22 months and peak decline about 42%.  The average bull market is 54 months long and the average gain is about 166%. Thus, to use the above as a reference, if you journey across the ocean the water is only at its deepest only the minority of time.  The market

1944

The average age for an American soldier serving in WWII was about 26 years of age.  The average size was reportedly about five feet eight inches and about 144 pounds.  On June 6th 1944 many of these ‘average’ Americans were tasked with piling into Higgins Boats (landing craft) and come face to face with German machine guns, mines and heavy artillery.  The Germans had months to prepare and sight in their guns for just such an occasion. The place was Normandy France.&nbs

‘The times they are a-changin…’

That line from the song written by Bob Dylan a long time ago, reflects well in this day and age. I have owned or used a cell phone since back in the late 1980s but only recently invested in a smart watch.  For those of you that do not own one, beware.  For those of you that do own one, you will know what I am talking about.  You can get addicted to the buggers.  It can track your steps, your heart rate, if you have been idle for too long it will message you, email etc.&h

Get Real

GET REALREAL IS DEFINED AS actually existing as a thing or occurring in fact; not imagined or supposed according to Webster’s Dictionary.  This was also something of a favorite phrase a contemporary of mine used back when I was in college.  As a matter of practicality, getting real means avoiding the opposite which is fantasy or simply not real. Reality has different meanings for all of us as it applies to what is going on in our lives.  Perhaps a child or grandchild wa

Back to the Future

Remember that movie series from back in the 80’s?  If you don’t the movies starring Michael J Fox, featured a time traveling automobile which allowed the actors character to move back or forward in time. What would you do if you could time travel like that?  What would you have done differently?  What difference would that make now?  Fantasy like that can be thought provoking but serves us if only to contemplate what might have been or what could be. In

LIFE IS A HIGHWAY-TOM COCHRANE

Taken from that famous song which was popular in the nineties (full disclosure: I still like it), which conjures up an image of ever changing events which shapes our lives. I think we can all relate…
