Previous 101 List Completed | The Night Of The Fire In Toronto By The Lake

Had great seats to the TFC Game and I knocked a thing off the list.

Sandra came across some tickets and asked me if I wanted to go at the last minute.  Who would say no to that.  A great night… great weather… and the seats were right by half a couple of rows from the grass.  TFC lost 2-1 to the Chicago Fire.  Two seats over was someone I worked with at Fid a while back.  It was great to see him and catch up.

I have to go back and bring C.  She would love it.  N could not go for a couple of years… since the language is a bit thick.

I cleaned up my main Tumblr blog, which is in the process of being added into this blog site but can be found here in the meantime.  I also created a private blog that is just for my kids which will show them what’s on tap for the next time we are together… my thoughts and encouragement with them as well as recaps of the fun moments we have had together going forward.

My daughter got a IPod Touch for Christmas and I’ll instal a link to the blog on it so she can follow it with her brother and when they get Wifi… they will be able to go on it.

Previous 101 List Completed | I’m Mobile

#8 on my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days was completed a while ago.  I purchased a much needed laptop for myself that gives me the flexibility to use it when on the GO and more importantly use it to move forward in my life and keep track of things.    Glad the price of laptops has gone down compared to a couple of years ago.

I purchased a HP Pavilion from Best Buy which hooked me up with a free HD Video camera from Kodak.  It has a ton of space inside it for storage and some neat bells & whistles.  It was $799 since I wanted something powerful to run things for photo editing and handle a good amount of media.

It has a great web-camera built inside it so I’m looking forward to use it to communicate with my two kids and my Dad in Nova Scotia.

Previous 101 List Completed | Stocks Go Up + Stocks Go Down

On my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days  I completed #1 on my list:  Open an investment trading account where I can trade stocks and transfer in my current investments over into one plan.

I opened an account with TD Waterhouse near the start of 2012 and I opened a TFSA account.  I made four purchases into Research in Motion, Under Armour, Fusion IO and First Solar to start off with then General Motors.  I’m a Nike guy… but Under Armour is doing great things with professional athletes and they are moving into the women’s market next year.  RIM has gotten the crap kicked out of them and it’s nice to buy something on “sale”.  Things will better for RIM in 2012 with the neat stuff they want to deliver in 2nd Quarter of 2012.  Fusion IO is a really cool company with it’s Memory Platform has brought some of the biggest companies to it’s door step to use it’s technology to run their servers and handle incredible amounts of data.  First Solar was purchased from it’s position in the marketplace.  This Arizona company makes thin solar film.  They recently opened a huge plant in Germany and have it running at capacity to meet the demand from European countries looking to find alternative energy sources.

Little update for fun:  Returns are from Dec 21st, 2011 to March 12th, 2014:

General Motors up 73%

First Solar up 68%

Fusion IO down 38%

Under Armour up 216%  (wild and they are still growing… )

Research In Motion down 26%

#68 of 101 | Omar’s Coming | The Wire

Download all the seasons of the show “The Wire” and watch them all to complete all the seasons of the show.  Profile on IMDb It’s rated a 9.4 and it’s highly recommended.  It ran for 5 seasons on HBO between 2002 and 2008.

I finished season one and found it hard to find the time and the shows online to watch.  I will try this again and try and finish this little task which will be sweet.

Plot Summary: Set in Baltimore, this show centers around the city’s inner-city drug scene. It starts as mid-level drug dealer, D’Angelo Barksdale beats a murder rap. After a conversation with a judge, Det. James McNulty has been assigned to lead a joint homicide and narcotics team, in order to bring down drug kingpin Avon Barksdale. Avon Barksdale, accompanied by his right-hand man Stringer Bell, enforcer Wee-Bey and many lieutenants (including his own nephew, D’Angelo Barksdale), has to deal with law enforcement, informants in his own camp, and competition with a local rival, Omar, who’s been robbing Barksdale’s dealers and reselling the drugs. The supervisor of the investigation, Lt. Cedric Daniels, has to deal with his own problems, such as a corrupt bureaucracy, some of his detectives beating suspects, hard-headed but determined Det. McNulty, and a blackmailing deputy. The show depicts the lives of every part of the drug “food chain”, from junkies to dealers, and from cops to politicians.
