5.4 Mag Earthquake in Los Angeles this morning

I was on the phone at the office on the 11th floor of our building in Marina del Rey when I heard some expletives on the other side of the telephone line then the whole building shook like I had never felt before. I have been in LA for 6.5 years and this was the biggest earthquake I had felt. My Assistant and Sales Director have gone home for a lay down. There have been 27 after shocks in the hour since the quake and luckily there is no tsunami warning.
Was a bit of a rush, reminded me of being on a large boat in large swells.

Glad there is no reports of bad damage or death.

Welcome to Los Angeles.

Condoleezza Rice in New Zealand

I think it is great that Winston Peters and the Government of NZ has extended and invitation to US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to visit NZ. I think it is even better that she excepted the offer and is currently in New Zealand. I think Winston peters has done a lot for US-NZ relations and I hope the NZ public offer her a pleasant welcome.

We are in a Bear Market

The DOW is down at 11,191 which puts us in a Bear Market. It has to close at this level to make it official. A Bear Market normally averages 14 months, so there may be some good investment opportunities out there soon.
