Labor Force Participation Rate at 38-year LOW

Big Red Car here. Well The Boss got the garage cleaned out, so now your Big Red Car can sleep in security inside the garage. But, wait, the Lexus SUV (a pampered bitch if ever there was one) is going to be getting first dibs on the new sleeping quarters. Life is not fair! But, hey, I love it anyway cause I get to commune with nature and all that jazz.

So The Boss turned a bit serious today when having a hot dog with one of his buddies. They ate at Man Bites Dog, said it was very good. Continue reading

USAA — A Terrific Insurance Company

Big Red Car here.  Oh, it is sunny and clear in the ATX.  Cold, don’t you know?  Get out and exercise off some of that turkey, please.  Burp!  [OMG, Big Red Car, did you get into the 10W40 again?]

So The Boss was talking to a fellow Veteran about the USAA — United Services Automobile Association — a freakin’ insurance company, ya’ll.

The B-24 Liberator When America Was Great

Big Red Car here.  The Boss was up early this morning and out for a swim.  He likes to swim very early in the morning.  I think the Old Boy is skinny dipping but who really knows?

Something I’ve been wanting to share with you is the story of the American B-24 Liberator one of  the big bombers produced by the United States in response to the looming war.  Second World War, ya’ll.

The Market is Not Stupid

Big Red Car here.  It’s a quiet morning and nobody is up and stirring yet.  Well, except for that mean old bitch, the market.  She’s been up all night long making the adjustments that she is wont to make.

Ahhh, the sound of rain falling gently on our lovely ATX.  It is a narcotic sound and makes me want to get back to sleep.

But, dear reader, I must tell you about something that is very obvious — the market is not stupid.

What is Customer Loyalty in the Age of the Internet?

Big Red Car here.  The weather is cloudy in the ATX today.  We are in mourning but I can’t tell you why just yet.  It is a sad, gray day.  Appropriate for mourning.

So The Boss is visiting with a couple of his CEOs and he was giving them an old school definition of customer loyalty.

They liked it — clueless really.  [Haha, Big Red Car, do not be dissing The Boss's CEOs.  That is both impolite and rude.]

Size Matters

Big Red Car here.  Nice cooooooooooooooool night but WTF about this humidity?  Almost 80% — that’s like freakin’ Houston.  Houston, we’ve got a problem!  Haha, Big Red Car, you are starting early today.  Cut the crap, Big Red Car and get on with today’s story.

So the house sitter runs the snot out of the Big Red Car last night but almost forgets to fill me up with gas — petrol to you Brits.  The kid forgets to gas me up.  The Boss is going to hear about this, you can bet on it.  I limp into the gas station and finally get filled up after the kid finally finds my gas tank behind the license plate.  Where do they get these kids from?

Fear — where an entrepreneur’s dreams go to die

Big Red Car here.  It’s going to be almost 100F and a bit sunny today in the afternoon.  Hoping to get some top down time this afternoon.

So The Boss is having coffee this morning with one of his CEO clients.  Nice guy.
