Cinder Bock is a cinder block of fla … screw the pun, I really liked this malty, slightly smokey beer.
Good run this morning
Brunch with Ryan
Drinking spotted cow now while grilling steaks for dinner
After dinner, I’ll be drinking Knob Creek single barrel and reading (Bulls Eye Investing) until its time to finish off season 7 of Dexter.
Other than having to see Ryan, today is a good Sunday
If you can get past the fantastic food, nicer than hell owner, and the cool atmosphere, this place stinks.
Leave it to Goldman Sachs to host a conference in a location that’s only convenient for Goldman Sachs.
This is much hoppier for a self-described “malty, robust jobless recovery ale.”
The bourbon barrel- aged beer is the best thing they make, and that stuff is good. However, Bluegrass Sundown, a bourbon-based coffee-flavored liqueur, isn’t far behind.
At the distillery, they’ll serve it to you mixed with some heavy cream and hot water. I’m not sure what that concoction is actually named, but it’s worth trying. However, Bluegrass Sundown is surprisingly good on its own.
After trying to get into it at least three times, I’m giving Twitter another shot. After the SEC ruled that companies can disseminate information via tweet, I figured that I should keep up with the medium.
Maybe I wasn’t following the right people, but I’ve found it to be just a constant flood of random, unorganized noise. I’m going to try to be more selective with which people/organizations I follow this time around.
So, any tips on who to follow would be appreciated.
I haven’t settled in on the perfect handle, and I’m not sure how much I’ll actually tweet, but I’m currently going with @BJAKattack
Wish me luck
First, JCP’s board gets rid of Ullman and brings in Johnson to usher in a new era of JCP and refresh its strategy. Ullman couldn’t connect with the consumer and move product.
Then, Johnson lays out a multi-year strategy, where they expect sales to fall, but it’s all part of the plan. The media hammered JCP for declining sales, and I’m sure investors weren’t too happy either as the share price dropped from the 20s to ~$15, but it was all part of the plan.
Didn’t the board get rid of Ullman because he wasn’t good enough? Why bring him back?
Maybe Ullman is just an interim CEO, while the board looks for someone better. However, if that’s the case, why not just get rid of Johnson and have someone internal step up as the interim?
Maybe Ullman has learned some new tricks in the past year or so, and he’ll be a better CEO this time around. … right
Or maybe the board doesn’t know what the hell to do. In that case, shareholders should vote the board out in the next proxy.
