After December’s unprecedented, and near obscene distribution of $3.987/per share I kind of expected the January distribution to be small — BUT I never thought it would be this puny and meaningless.

To be fair in 2013 it did NOT do a dividend at all and the 2014 dividend, rounded up, was 0.006. But, 0.00513. That is a joke. Kind of belies the fact that it is SUPPOSED to be an income fund. I sure hope nobody was relying, in January, for a NOIEX dividend — because they will be in for a big shock.

That said, NOIEX has done quite well in the last 4 days, since January 20, 2015. Up to that day, i.e., Jan. 20, it was flat as of the December 18, 2014 distribution, i.e., NAV $12.57 on Dec. 18 and $12.57 on Jan. 20. But it has been going up since. Closed on Jan. 26, ex-Jan. dividend (puny though it may have been) at $12.75. On Jan. 22 it hit $12.81. At $12.75 it has gone up 1.4% (ex-dividend) over the last month. Given what we have gone through in the market that is probably not bad.

But, somebody needs to keep a close eye of NOIEX. As far as I am concerned it is ‘on notice’.

All the best.

Yes, they are an ONLINE bakery.


They were brought to my attention via e-mail this morning. Despite I having not eaten ANY chocolate now for 2 years and 1 week, I still know my chocolate. [I didn’t get this color just using a tanning light.] The chocolates look world class and as some of you know I spent a lot of time in Paris and a fair amount in Brussels. Deanna and the kids are unashamed, unapologetic chocoholics. They made brownies to keep them going during tomorrow’s storm — but ate most of them as soon as it came out of the oven. I told them about Triolo’s. They looked them up on their phones. They were suitably impressed. They want to go, and that we will do.

Triolo’s is in Bedford, not that far — basically across ‘River Road’ — from Bedford Mall. So easy enough to get to. But you don’t have to go (even with gas at $2.29/gallon). They are ONLINE.

I wish them all the best. It does look yummy.

I am bummed that Carl’s Jr. do not have any outlets within 600 miles of me!

How could they do that to ME?

They got me hook, line and sinker with that burger. I could NOT keep my eyes off it. My mouth was watering. I will give the buns to the dogs, as I always do, and just concentrate on the beef.

Very good ad. The picture definition of the burger is first class. Didn’t understand the market scene. Seemed a bit superfluous to the needs. All they had to do was to show a picture of the burger.

I wonder if I can get them to ship me some?

Tuesday, February 3, 2015 episode — one day ahead of Sri Lankan Independence Day. There is a rumor that Anthony is redoing the historic Mount Lavinia Hotel in Sri Lanka in the next series.

Of course, it goes without saying, that the now notorious “Woodstock Inn” will feature, big time, in one or both of these shows. That seems predestined.

I am curious whether the ‘Autoport Motel’ (Pennsylvania) will get a shout-out. They should. We read the post filming commentary that rolls across the screen at the end of each episode. Right after the episode was filmed the owners of the Motel got sued, by the ex-wife of one of them, for trademark violation on the name ‘Clem’ — the Motel’s restaurant. Appears that the ex-wife also had a ‘Clems’ in Pennsylvania. Given that I am somewhat familiar with divorce, ex-wives and trademarks this struck me as odd. Was it JUST a coincidence that they got sued following all the commotion that must have ensued when the show was being taped. The ex-wife must have known about the ‘Clem’ in the Motel. If the lawsuit came about because of the publicity I have to believe others are going to get nervous. Interesting. Deanna has already instructed me to tape the 2 shows — to add to 5 we still have, unwatched, on the DVR.

I am hoping that we might even get to see a sneak preview of “The Budapest Hotel“.

Do NOT confuse Indian Republic Day, viz. January 26, with Indian Independence Day, viz. August 15.

After gaining Independence (from Britain) on August 15, 1947, they had to come up with a constitution for the Republic. That constitution was passed on November 26, 1949. It was adopted on January 26, 1950. That is when India became a Republic. Hence Republic Day. January 26, was also the day, in 1930, when the Indian National Congress, the party of Gandhi and Nehru, passed a declaration that they would seek Independence. So it is a very historic day for India.

Come February 4, Sri Lankan Independence Day, Sri Lankans, worldwide, will be bummed IF they don’t get a Google Doodle. Sri Lanka has only had ONE Google Doodle for Independence Day, that in 2013 — and that was BECAUSE I submitted a request to Google. Sri Lankans will be bummed that India gets at least two Doodles a year — of late. But lets face it. India is a much bigger, much more important country and at least 5% of Google (worldwide) must be Indians.
