the Big Pines Highway to Mountain HighBig day today, and bigger day tomorrow ... riding up the Big Pines Highway to the ATOC Stage 6 summit finish at Mountain High, and then attending my 35th class reunion at Caltech.  Whew.  And in the meantime, it's all happening...

Scott "Dilbert" Adams: Profiting from the news.  "It's never a good idea to get investment ideas from a cartoonist".
