The best line from that: "The challenge for the scruffy network is apparent and sizable: how to monetize? Dogs sit outside the 18-49 year-old demographic sweet spot that marketers home in on. Also, they are dogs."

Diversification numbers unimpressive, but love the Average Investor stat.

You have more streaming TV options than you could hope for, especially now that Amazon has entered the fray. And while Apple TV, Chromecast, and Fire TV all have their strengths, they also share the same crippling weakness: self-interest. That's what makes Roku so important.

Breakfast - food was mediocre, and overpriced. Potatoes were half cooked. There's also no list to get a table, so it's a free-for-all. which makes for an unpleasant experience

Unlike every other Home Depot I've ever been to, the employees in this store are pleasant, knowledgeable and proactively eager to help. I was stunned. Something must be deeply wrong with the universe?

Much better than five guys or other local places. Burgers were very good, fries excellent. Death-by-chocolate milkshake is amazing. Service is OK - sitting outside on a sunny day is wonderful.

These are the friendliest, most helpful people. Normally I'm just dropping off packages, but it makes a pleasant change nowadays to find cheerful competent help at a store. They also proactively told me when I could fit in a late drop-off and what box sizes and weights were the breakpoints for going into oversized packages.
