Year in and year out, the very best investment advice is contained in the Berkshire Hathaway annual report's shareholder letter. This year is no different.  Loved getting Charlie's "right hand man" perspective for the 50th anniversary edition (starts on page 39).  If you read and study nothing else on investing, let it be this.

Got an "all clear" on my cardiac blood tests, nothing to worry about. The cardiologist is very happy. Of course, those tests were conducted before the SB party.

The day our mother prayed for has finally arrived. Her two sons are working at the same company (for a few hours, anyway). Welcome to Google, Jordan Mendal and the WWE!

Bragging rights
(1) Have been told I cook the best salmon on the planet; (2) Notification of being one of 125 people to first find an error in "The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 3: Sorting and Searching" by Donald Knuth. I sent my original submission to Knuth on 11/1/1985, which he acknowledged by personal letter on 7/1/1996. The error was on page 381, dealing with the Stability property of the Selection sort algorithm. Knuth provided me with a finder's fee personal check in the amount of $5.11.

Former Google Executive Chef Derek Rupp took over ownership in March 2010 and brought his vast culinary talents to improve the food, decor, and overall customer experience. The pizza crust is light and crisp yet firm enough to hold the mounds of toppings that adorn most varieties. Portion sizes are huge, you get a lot for your money. Service is fast and friendly.

Chefs and owners Don and Il are true artists. Best sushi in the south bay, and the place many chefs gravitate to when they go out for sushi.
