    Thanks Troy!  The Smarter Than I Am site actually started out as a quick and easy way to bookmark things, but I'm surprised how often I find myself peeking back for inspiration as well.  Love that investors quote… words to live by!  Or at least, words to have a lot less grief because of :)

    So weird. I JUST got a trackback in this and your Valentine’s Day one. You must think I’m a not nice word for never commenting!

      Just you wait until I post my scathing Project Arnold Palmer post… Actually, I just switched the site from Posterous to WordPress so it probably just fired it off for the first time!

        I think you should do Project Arnold Palmer soon!
