I’m back! Your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe has returned from an extended road trip with Mrs. Gumshoe and the little Gumshoes (who aren’t so little anymore, part of the reason for our trip was visiting colleges for our oldest), and I’m trying to catch up with a giant pile of correspondence and decide which new super-secret […]
Sounds good, right? Sitting back and collecting a nice rent check every month — without having to be the guy who fixes the roof or calls the plumber or has to deal with tenants who skip town without paying or have loud parties and annoy the neighbors? It’s perfect! And, of course, it’s been eminently […]
I mostly want to take a look at Dan Ferris’ Extreme Value teaser today, which I told you the solution to earlier in the week, but I do have a few other things to note today first. For those still following or holding Nagacorp (NGCRF), owner of the Nagaworld casino in Cambodia, I’ve for a […]
