The past week we have seen the Tribune stock lifted because of the stock buyback plan, that was announced at the end of May, and the feud between the Chandler Family and the board at the Tribune Company.
Always the skeptic, I wonder if the so called feud is real or just a fabrication? What ever the case, the stock price has climbed above thirty dollars a share, now to see if it can continue on this upward trend in the coming months.
It was brought to my attention that a letter from the Tribune Board was not published here, if someone would so kind as to forward the missing letter, I will post it after work tonight.
Just as newspapers and television stations track how many readers or viewers they have, as a blogger I too keep track, to see if anyone is watching, of my users or hits. The program I use does not count pings or reloads, I only count actual visitors. I'm sure there are many bloggers that pad their daily counts, in order to have a better standing with Tecnorama or other listing services.
Last week my blog finally broke the one thousand visitor mark in a one week period, that starts on Monday and ends on Sunday.
Last Friday Cigna called and gave me a phone number for a child psychologist for my daughter, with an appointment for Monday, June 19th, 2006 at 2:50pm. I have been calling the number since last Friday, and the number has been busy for four days straight. I finally just started calling every number on my printout of providers, and have an appointment for this Friday.
I would like to thank everyone for the kind words and advice in these trying times at home and work. My special thanks goes out to the men and women of the pressroom office, you know who you are, that said they would get me an appointment today if I was unable to do so.
I have some additional toys I received as Father's Day gifts, like my new wireless mouse, and my D-Link that added three more USB ports to my computer.
Have heard from Wayne that our Internet access will be returned to Olympic very soon, with safeguards put in place to stop users from viewing porn.
