The sub-title on the homepage of this blog reads in the pursuit of wisdom. That’s my goal, to share with you noteworthy excerpts from other websites, books, articles, essays, speeches, poems, cartoons and videos. I look for material that jumps out at me as being unusually insightful, profound, clever, interesting , original, entertaining  or humorous—and then I keep my fingers crossed that you have the same reaction. Helping me to “separate the wheat from the chaff” is 40 years experience of doing exactly the same thing in the investment field, where I digested the thinking of the “best” minds in Wall Street (see Profile). This time I’ve expanded the subject matter to include everything. I will post when I have something to say that matters. Each post will be numbered, dated and categorized. Past posts will be available under Archives.  If, after reading this blog for awhile, you feel smarter (knowing more than before)), wiser (making better judgments than before) and happier ( a few smiles and maybe even some chuckles), yours truly will be a happy camper.


The best thing a human being can do is to help another being know more.“………………Charlie Munger, life-time partner of Warren Buffett
