Weekend Quote - Moments
Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each, is to succeed.

Weekend Quote from a Book - Possessions
Mr. Friend never really enjoys his life. He owns a lot of upscale things, yet he works so hard and for so many hours during a typical day that he has no time to enjoy them. He has no time for his family, either. He leaves his house each day before dawn and rarely returns home in time for dinner.

Would you like to be Mr. Friend? His lifestyle is appealing to many people. But if these people really understood Mr. Friend's inner workings, they might evaluate him differently. Mr. Friend is possessed by possessions. He works for things. His motivation and his thoughts are focused on the symbols of economic success. He constantly needs to convince others of this success. Unhappily, he has never convinced himself. In essence, he works, he earns, and he sacrifices to impress others.

Weekend Quote from a Book - Truly Rich People
Trey and Jim share something else in common. Both feel it is important to be recognized by their respective industry's trade associations as winners. Conversely, they understand it is meaningless to be recognized and envied by strangers for a watch. Their badges of honor and success are not about inciting watch envy in others. They are rich and don't need to flaunt it to everyone they come in contact with on a daily basis. However, they both admit that it is very satisfying being rich, and they relish their industry awards and recognition. Of the millionaires surveyed who do wear expensive watches, half received them as gifts.

Weekend Quote from a Book - Income and Happiness
Richer [higher income] people tend to be happier. Experiments suggest, however, that what matters most is not income per se but income relative to the income of one's peer....Americans compare themselves to other Americans of the same age, resulting in a hedonic treadmill because incomes in the United States rise over most of the adult lifespan...rather than promoting overall happiness, continued income growth in rich countries could promote an ongoing consumption race where individuals consume more and more justto maintain a constant level of happiness.

Weekend Quote from a Book - Time Decay - the Advantage of Selling Options
Options are a wasting asset. This means that it takes a larger move in the underlying futures contract or equity for the option to be worth more money to the option buyer. That is why such a large percentage of options are closed out prior to expiration. Buyers know that the longer they hold their options, the better is the chance that the value of those options will decay to zero. In addition, the closer an option is to expiration, the more difficult it becomes for that option to increase in price and produce or increase a profit for the buyer. Whether taking profits or cutting losses, many people will rush to the exits before expiration day comes. As a seller, you have the luxury of just waiting it out, welcoming the inevitable. Some very inventive trading techniques have been created over the years, but nobody yet has come up with a way to stop the steady march of time.

MagicJack's new device: Free cell phone calls from phone
MagicJack, that low-cost Internet phone gadget-maker, has come out with yet another product that could reduce the cost of cell phone calls - a device that enables you to make free calls from cell phones in the home.
The device is, in essence, a very small cellular tower for the home.

The size of a deck of cards, it plugs into a PC, which needs a broadband Internet connection. The device then detects when a compatible cell phone comes within 8 feet, and places a call to it. The user enters a short code on the phone. The phone is then linked to the magicJack, and as long as it's within range (YMax said it will cover a 3,000-square-foot home) magicJack routes the call itself, over the Internet, rather than going through the carrier's cellular tower. No minutes are subtracted from the user's account with the carrier. Any extra fees for international calls are subtracted from the user's account with magicJack, not the carrier.

According to YMax CEO Dan Borislow, the device will connect to any phone that uses the GSM standard, which in the U.S. includes phones from AT&T Inc. and T-Mobile USA. At a demonstration at CES, a visitor's phone with a T-Mobile account successfully placed and received calls through the magicJack. Most phones from Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel Corp. won't connect to the device.

Borislow said the device is legal because wireless spectrum licenses don't extend into the home.
MagicJack is expected to unveil this device in about 4 months, with expected price of $40 for one-year service, including free calls to US and Canada.

Weekend Quote - Money and Things
It's good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it's good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you haven't lost the things that money can't buy.

Weekend Quote from a Book - Why boredom is good for you
For many of us, our lives are so filled with stimuli, no to mention responsibilities, that it's almost impossible for us to sit still and do nothing, much less relax - even for a few minutes. A friend of mine said to me, "People are no longer human beings. We should be called human doings."
....
..if you allow yourself to be bored, even for an hour - or less - and don't fight it, the feelings of boredom will be replaced with feelings of peace. An after a little practice, you'll learn to relax.
....
When you allow yourself to be bored, it takes an enormous amount of pressure off you to be performing and doing something every day. Now, when either of my two children says to me, "Daddy, I'm bored." I respond by saying, "Great, be bored for a while. It's good for you." Once I say this, they always give up the idea of me solving their problem.
