Old Key Lime HouseIt’s been a good week for family. Mom was in town and we got to hang out a bit. Earlier in the week we had a nice lunch at the Old Key Lime House in Lantana, Florida. If you’ve never been, put it on your list. It’s a nice little hangout and the food is filling and fresh. Just don’t feed the birds.

While it was a good week for family, it wasn’t such a great week for the stock market which is perfectly fine for me. Better than the other way around. Speaking of the market, I’m beginning to think the market is really just one large high school cafeteria. I mean one dude walks into the room and the place goes nuts.

Anyway, onto the reason for the post. There are some good articles rounded up this week. David Brooks is usually an interesting read so check out the friendships article or hunt down some of his TED talks.
