Quick Market Update

Just time for a quick post.  It’s been almost a month since my previous market update, which was me cashing out after the July relief rally and before our August vacation to Gotland.  Didn’t miss much (a last market gasp, then a quick death).

After vacation, I was busy all August with:

  • BuzzPal-related stuff (good stuff!)
  • planning trip to London for Seedcamp week (my schedule so far)
  • working on a real estate deal (my lot is back on the market after the buyers had to exercise their contingency — glad I countered their original offer and made the earnest money non-refundable)
  • some other stuff

Plus we were in a trading “no man’s land,” and everybody knows (or should know) that there’s no point in going into a “no man’s land” unless you like getting your balls blown off by land mines.

But things are getting interesting again…

First Batch of Gotland Pics

Susanne, Birgitta, Roy, and I had a great week on the Swedish island of Gotland.  We were based in the medieval city of Visby, staying in an apartment owned by Roy’s cousin and his wonderful family.  From Visby, we traveled all around the island, including to the tiny island of Fårö, which is where Ingmar Bergman made a home until his death last year.  By coincidene, our visit overlapped with Gotland’s annual Medieval Week fastival, which was really neat.  Now on to the pics.  Note: All of these were taken with Susanne’s Canon Ixus.  I’ll post the pics from our Canon Xti (400D) soon.

UPDATE: Here is the second batch of Gotland pics. Below are the rest of the ones from this batch.
