Checking In

Right now I'm in the ATL airport with a few free moments until I have to hop on a plane. I just spent the past week in Greenwich, CT - possibly the most ridiculous town I have ever seen. I've included a small sample of pictures that neatly sum up the area. No kidding, as I was walking back from dinner last night, I passed two Corvettes, two Porches, a Lamborghini and an Aston Martin. The majority of the money comes from the ubiquitous hedge funds which are seemingly in every other office building. The last several weeks have been pretty rough for a lot of the "quant" funds, but most of them will be able to escape from the sub-prime mortgage mess.

Two weeks ago I was in Boston, and got to catch a sweet game at Fenway Park. Though I am a staunch opponent of the Red Sox, any sports fan has to recognize the special environment at Fenway.

The week before that, I was out in San Diego, and got to stay at the Torrey Pines Hilton, where my hotel room looked out upon the 18th fairway of the Torrey Pines golf course. Again, I am not a huge golf fan, but looking onto a perfectly manicured course is something anyone should be able to appreciate.

Hopefully my life will slow down a bit and I will be able to get back to posting here regularly on the Julep. Thanks for still checking it out.
