A very nice pop. Those that were lucky enough to get in at $14 must, obviously, be very happy. Good for them.

Let’s see if the enthusiasm persists two weeks from now. No my watchlist.

I have to confess that though a HUGE fan of Roku, I had NOT heard of the Roku IPO until this morning — and that from MarketWatch, a Website I frequent incessantly!

I am no longer BIG on IPOs. I, personally, haven’t made any money on an IPO in ages. So, I no longer get too excited.

At $12 to $14, the Roku IPO price seems ‘interesting’. So, I will keep an eye on it tomorrow morning. It is supposed to get priced tonight, i.e., September 27, 2017. IF it shoots up, it, like so many other tech IPOs of late, is most likely to come down 20% within the month! I will keep you appraised. Do not sweat. That is what and why I am here.



8pm, Wednesday, September 27, 2017.

Roku has set the IPO price at $14 — the maximum that had been previously muted. Hhhmmm.

Thursday’s opening will tell.

The First Tweet Was Sent On Twitter, This Day, July 15, 11-Years Ago — In 2006.

by Anura Guruge



Twitter was founded on March 21, 2006.

But it was not available as a service until July 15 of that year. So, folks within Twitter did send out Tweets as of March 21 BUT the service only went live for us, the public, 11 year ago, today.

We saw the balloon, in the distance, while waiting at the “Museum of Art” to get on the ‘PHLASH‘ bus shuttle to get to the Philadelphia Zoo. Did NOT realize that it was a public, tethered helium balloon ride till we got to the zoo. Affordable at that — and surprisingly (especially given the price), NO LINE. You don’t even have to buy an entrance ticket to the zoo — since the balloon is outside off the entrance. Learned all of this, from a very helpful zoo employee, as soon as we got there. Rushed over. Best $12 you can spend in Philly.

It goes up 400′. The whole ride is about 15 minutes. Very smooth. Wonderful. Great views. Loved it. Kids were a tad nervous, since it was something new, but enjoyed it. Another experience.

Great zoo. We had fun. We, the two girls and I, were in Philly to pick up our Jaguar.

I haven’t attended a selectmen’s meeting in a long time, so I am not in a position to comment.

But to see callousness and cussedness finessed you should attend the Alton Central School Board meeting — even when there is no breaking glass!

In terms of sheer entertainment value it was better than going to the circus and much cheaper. That is why we used to go, but not anymore. They succeeded in basically gagging the public. That is another story for another day, closer to the next Board meeting.

I am, however, confused by the statement about recording the meetings! Aren’t they already video taped! Not sure if Mr. Whittmann is talking about LIVE audio streaming maybe on FM. If he is talking about live streaming over the Internet that should already be possible. The School Board even talked about that. 

Do Alton Central School Parents Care If The School Buys Its Heating Oil From A Convicted Sexual Harasser?

This, the morality of doing business with a known sexual harasser, already convicted once and again facing suit, was the burning, contentious issue at Tuesday’s, August 20, 2013, out-of-cycle, 4 to 6 (rather than 6 to 8) Alton Central School (ACS) Board Meeting.

Fred Fuller came in with the lowest bid and the Board, in general, always goes with the lowest bid unless they know of any detrimental factors.

Steve Miller, who I do recall has railed about this before, yet again, made a passionate plea for not doing business with this outfit. I definitely see where Steve is coming from (but 93% of the time, in marked contrast to many others) I do tend to see what Steve is getting at). Though we have 3 females on the Board, none of them was willing to side with Steve. I, during the second pubic input, even suggested that this issue, for the future, be put to the Alton voters in the form of a referendum (‘warrant article’ as I was informed by Superintendent, Mr. Lander).

But, yet again Deanna and I were the ONLY public there. Plus, of course, we don’t have a say.

What do the other parents think.

The difference between the lowest bid and the next was $1,500 or $1,600.

Is morality worth $1,500?

The real underlying issue here is that sexual harassment in the workplace is not a felony (or that is what I read).
