Short article - - must excerpt.
But you and I know there's no place like Nome.
Nome is a happ’n town. In the summer, folks go and live on the beach and pan for gold. You won’t make a million, but gold you will find.
Folks are nice enuf and they have Internet cafes.
Oh, boy! How’s the BBQ’d whale blubber taste?
Ah good morning Ms. Madoff, right this way...
I didn't see where Nome got a whale quota for the last few years. You have to go up the coast to get in on a whale hunt/feast.
Muktuk is an acquired taste, one I have missed out on - by the way, you can't BBQ muktuk - it's flammable....
Gosh! Then it’s a good thing I didn’t move there myself. But I couldn’t help have a bit of fun with it. Nome looks about as exciting as where I live now.
Must be a spank’n place where you live.
Do you guys sponser/support any World Class dog races? Nome is the end point for the Iditarod sled dog race.
You can catch some of the race on cable from time to time./
the Nome CoC sure doesn’t understand New Yawkuhs or they’re just having fun at her expense. Most would sooner die and end up in a Queens cemetary than leave their fair parish.
No dog races. But we do have card-board boat races on a city park’s lake today with fireworks to follow. Whoopee!
Oh, I think she will have a place to stay before long.
Ruth Madoff was Bernie’s bookkeeper.
According to a person close to the case, that the funds from the advisory business were in fact comingled with Madoffs personal funds and with a market-making fund in which he as a broker-dealer executed orders for customers.
It was Ruth Madoff who oversaw the books on all three of these accounts, and it was the comingling of money from themcontrary to regulations that require such accounts to be kept separatethat enabled the elaborate shell game. It also meant that some investors’ money was not invested for their own benefit but went into Madoff’s personal assets.
the fraud dates back at least 40 years
Ruth Madoff Withdrew $15.5 Million From Madoff Brokerage Before Bust
Ruth Madoff withdrew $5.5 million on Nov. 25 and $10 million on Dec. 10, according to documents
Madoff was arrested Dec. 11 on allegations of perpetrating a massive Ponzi scheme.
Ruth Madoff, who was considered innocent at first, is believed to have received at least $70 million from her husband and is now therefore an object of the investigation.
Now that sounds like fun! And a whole lot warmer as well.
Enjoy, we are heading over to the kids for a big BBQ....
Innocent? There is a good reason behind the commandment, Thou shalt not steal. /sniff
Violating those commandments guarantees a life quickly turned into hell on earth.
Is that Diamond Head in the right background?
But just over that hill is Imokhtegokshuk.
And here's a winter scene at that popular destination:
