Oompa Loompa Tape

What exactly did they mean when singing ‘if you’re not greedy you will go far’? Clearly Oompa Loompas are not trader material and should stick with chocolate manufacturing only. Which incidentally may be coming back to the United States if President-elect Donald Trump will have his way. Not sure if that’s a good thing however. If I had to choose between a famed Hershey’s bar and one by Milka made from rich Alpine Swiss milk then I’m sure you know what I’d be stuffing my face with.

Last Trades Of Summer

That’s it – summer is officially over. Love or hate it – it’s time to mothball your summer outfits and start airing out the fall and winter gear. Before we know it we’ll be picking out Halloween outfits. Well, you will maybe – I’m already in character all year. Quite frankly I personally am looking forward to a cooler season as it has been one hellish and humid summer here in Valencia with an average dew point consistently pushing way above 63 Fahrenheit (17 Celsius). Which meant that every time I stepped out of our well air conditioned trading lair I started to sweat profusely within a matter of minutes. Having lived in Los Angeles for two [...]
