Sometime within the last week, Aaron and I were talking and he brought up a dish many of you will probably remember: Beef Stroganoff. We talked about how it seemed like nearly everyone raised in the 1980s and 1990s (at least in the Midwest) ate it regularly, often of the Hamburger Helper variety. It was ubiquitous, reaching worldwide popularity after emerging from Russia during the 19th century. You could not get away from this stuff – you ate it at home, you ate it when visiting family or friends, you at it at school, you ate it at church events.
I have decided that one of my personal projects is going to be revisiting the thousands of posts we put into the private archive prior to launching our asset management firm and, to the extent reasonably possible, release them back to the public blog if we feel they might be useful from an academic, entertainment, and/or historical perspective. NOTE THAT THIS POST WILL BE FEATURED AT THE TOP OF THE BLOG HOMEPAGE WHILE THE PROJECT IS ON-GOING. NEW POSTS WILL APPEAR BEHIND IT UNTIL THEN.

I’ve always been introspective. Over the past year, though, I find that I am spending more time examining my life so far; re-evaluating decisions, trying to gain additional insight from my experiences, and really being honest about what I want for the rest of the time I’ve been gifted. I think there several reasons for this.
As we’ve been taking walks through the parks and beaches of Southern California, different garden centers and nurseries such as Roger’s and Armstrong’s, I’ve been trying to catalog numerous flowers and plants that I might want to remember for future reference.
We tried pineapple teriyaki cheeseburgers and then went for a walk in Laguna Beach during sunset.
For as long as I can remember, one of my “must read” annual reports has been that of a regional bank called M&T Bank Corporation. This particular bank is legendary among investors for several reasons.
There is a Korean restaurant in irvine, California known as 도시락, or Dosirak. It sells boxed Korean lunches and they are delicious! I highly recommend it.
We decided to explore the South Coast Wilderness trails. We weren’t prepared for how spectacular they are.
