About

I live with my wife, Iris, in Miami Beach.  I retired from Intel in early 2001.  Since then, we have been doing a lot of travelling.  We have 2 grown kids.  Our daughter, Lisa, now works in London in the Financial Services industry.  Our son, Gregg, lives with his wife, Danae, in Orlando.  Gregg and Danae have 2 kids, Ender and Alanna.  Pictures of them and some of our recent trips can be found here.  Also, some of our trip videos are here.

I’m going to be doing different kinds of posts starting on April 18, 2009.  The title of each will begin with a keyword or acronym with the following meanings:

Market. This will typically be a weekly comment on the status of the market, emphasizing Lowry and Mauldin, with a personal bias.

Economy. Occasionally, I find some interesting observations on the state of the national and world economies.  I will pass some of these on, often, with my views.

Tech. Although I retired from Intel in 2001 (see Work Bio), I have kept abreast of developments in the PC industry, in particular with Intel and AMD roadmaps and financials.  In April 2009, I have also started to do a little consulting.

OTOH. This stands for “On the Other Hand”.  Mainstream news media often focus on one aspect of a story.  I sometimes come across an alternative perspective that I find interesting.  I will pass this on.

BKM. This stands for “Best Known Method”.  Organizations (in particular, our government) overlook solutions to problems that others have used effectively.  Such solutions are not adopted for a multiplicity of reasons, e.g. NIH (not invented here), Politics, stupidity, or all of the above.

Travel. Iris and I travel frequently.  This may be a travel tip from past travels, or simply about what we have done recently.

Health. Since we are retired, we spend a lot of time on the internet and find interesting health issues/tips that influence us.  I will share some of these.

    I stumbled across your blog by accident while Googling my “Fred’s Corner” just to see how many taverns and restaurants popped up. And , there you were. I thought you might be interested in the fact that there was another corner banging around.
    Retired and living in a small recreational community of 300 at Priest Lake, ID my wife started website just to provide a communication device other than notes on the laundramat bulletin board. ( http://www.priestlaker.com)

    The site flourished, (Now 10,000+ hits per week) and was swiftly monetized. It now has advertisers waiting in line.
    My wife, Pecky, gave me a little corner for a personal soapbox…which became a megaphone for my espoused conservativism..and occasionally politically incorrect viewpoints. As one of my liberal cousins told me…”she needs a healthy shot of Pepto-Bismal before reading it.” http://www.fredcoxcorner.blogspot.com

    I enjoyed reading your works. Very thoughtful and well referenced.

    Sincere regards,

    The Other Fred
