None from our yard! All taken between our house and Locke Lake in Barnstead. This is part of my running route twice a week. So, I know where the foliage is. Today was my day off. So, I went for a ride knowing that the light will be right for the pictures I wanted to take.

Italy Totally Switched Sides During World War II On This Day, 74-Years Ago — Declaring War On Germany!

Hard to even fathom … right.

You enter a major war on one-side and then turn against your original partner — and, moreover, declare war on them. But, that was Italy during WW II. Which is why to this day those that understand this stuff still joke about the Italian army.

But, at least, you can say, they saw the errors of their way.

So, if you know any Italians or Germans ask them IF they remember this anniversary. 74-years ago.

Margaret Thatcher (My 2nd Favorite Female PM) Was Born This Day, 92 Years Ago; October 13, 1925. (It Was Not A Friday).

by Anura Guruge

Having, as a student, led a protest march against her I became one of the staunchest supporters as I aged — and started making some ‘serious money’! Yes, I was an out-and-our Conservative by the time I was in my mid-20s.

She was a GREAT Lady.

The 5th female Prime Minister.

I never realized that she was ‘that’ old, i.e., born 1925.

She will be remembered. She did some good things. Got me into the stock market — if nothing else. {Smile}

“CarGurus” IPO, On October 12, 2017, Only Good For Those Lucky Enough To Have $16 IPO Shares.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and study. From “MarketWatch”.

I had read, prior to the open (on Thursday, October 12, 2017), that the IPO shares had been re-priced at $16 — higher than the original $15 ceiling.

Given what happened to the SWICH IPO last week, I didn’t even bother to check CARG during the day. I was kind of busy.

Well it appears that I didn’t miss much.

It opened at $29 which meant that there must have been a huge backlog of demand at the start. So a very nice 81% pop for those that had $16 shares. Wonder how many of them got a chance to sell.

But, the trend appears to have been a downward drift from the initial enthusiasm.

I will have to keep an eye on it.
