Facebook to issue stock!

Interesting to see a company, like Facebook, issue stock. People value the company at 75 to 100 billion dollars.

Now, here is the thing. They have 800 million users. You are probably a user as well. They may charge you for using games, or different apps. From what I hear, there is advertising dollars on there as well.

Sitting here, I do not understand how a company like this could be worth 75 billion dollars. All they are doing, is robbing Peter to pay Paul.

Not stealing, but enticing advertising revenue away from Google, Yahoo, and you name it. This probably is going to result in lower share values for the others. It will, take some time, as marketing people will see (some) facebook more attractive than the other web engines.

Very interesting... I hope it will not become like the tech bubble, and bring the house of cards down like it did several years ago.. Anyways, you cannot make money out of thin air. It has to come from somewhere, and that unfortunately, is at the expense of the other web engines, or social networking sites.. I should probably buy some of this stock, as it takes off at first... Then let her go, if I figure out when the peak will stop at... No news on the book front... Have a great day,  till then..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
