London cooking adventure and a blog break

Went for drinks with my colleagues 2 days ago to celebrate the end of our peak period and it was really a fun time. Truly, everyone drinks here, man or woman. And you know what? We talked about football and there were only 2 Man Utd supporters, me and another regional manager. And we have to defend the fort against West Ham, Spurs, Man City and a horde of Arsenal fans who are all… women! Someone called me a scum when she knew I am a Man Utd supporter. Hey… it was fun, I was not complaining.

I will be off to Italy for about 2 weeks and will be off from the blogosphere. After a week of entries with serious tone, let me share with you some of the stuff I have cooking…

Have a good weekend everyone and I hope that when I return, our nation will have a brighter future…

Italy… here I come!

Hi, gold is $992 today :).

Just wrote an article today about gold and google on jamy and gold and your comment on this post comes up 3rd of googles onJamy and gold
http://zewt.blogspot.com/2007/10/enlightening-comment.html
and you said 'jamy - nah, buying gold is no longer the way to go. i will be blogging about what is more valueable than gold in my next few entries.'

Most gold stocks up 4000% last 5 years and I wonder what are other asset class of investment that is more valuable than gold ?

Jamy
