All Stars, Al Stars and the #BestOfFinancialForWeek

So the World Cup is finally over. Congrats to the German team. We hope this means the beginning of a thousand years of supremacy in Football (maybe that isn’t the right phrase to use, but congrats). Exciting game to watch, glad it didn’t go to penalty kicks.

Bastille Day
Le 14 Juillet Bastille Day!

For those that may have missed it on le 14 juillet it was Bastille Day, which might explain why any of your French associates seemed overly patriotic on that day.

The baseball All-Star game was played this week, in Minnesota. This game actually matters since the winning team’s League will have home field advantage for the World Series this year. Who won the game? Tokyo?!? I didn’t really watch it, but I heard it was good. Did the Human League win?

Weird Al Yankovic has a new set of videos out, and a topical one is included at the end of this article. I enjoy Al’s parodies of current hits, but nothing will ever top his classic White & Nerdy (with Donny Osmond).

Word is that Montreal would be an excellent site for a Major League Baseball team, as a die-hard Expos fan (I was in the original Rusty Staub fan club), I can only hope, but they better not play in the Big Owe. Must Keep Calm on this one (there is a video about that too at the end).

My Writings for Week Ending July 18th

I have varmints eating my tomatoes and peppers in my back yard, aside from a shot-gun, can someone tell me the best way to get rid of them? A falcon sounds like a good idea, but I don’t know where to get one on short notice.

This Week’s Finest

It’s the summer so news is a bit slow, but there are some interesting tidbits still coming out :

I Need Weird Al as my Editor

As usual Weird Al comes through with a very topical theme for his parody:

Escher is my favorite MC? How can I not include this one?

Random Thoughts for 2014

Lots of these kinds of Best of articles in 2014. Here is a list of them.

My Twitter feed is where I re-tweet many great articles by some of my featured writers (and make the occasional odd or off colour commentary on life (in 140 characters or less)).

Feel Free to Comment

  1. Not a huge fan of bankers…correct. 🙂

    Thanks for the mention and have a great weekend. BTW, nice to see Weird Al’ back with some new parody tunes. Have you seen “Foil”? Good stuff.


  2. Thanks for the shout out!

    We’re trained to be terrible investors, I wish TD could go back and call those surveyed and ask how many of them are now nervous about the markets since they took a dive after #MH17
