Thank you Grandma

Posted in Uncategorized by beebe4 on February 6, 2004

I forgot to tell you guys that I found some stock certificates that Grandma Taylor (McDonald) gave me when I was younger (and at the time didn’t really appreciate). They are now worth around $800 and they are in Stein Mart and Viacom (originally Blockbuster, but they got bought). She did buy me one loser though, Duty Free has gone out of business.

Finding these also reminded me that I had signed up for a company called Travelzoo back in 1998 (when I worked at Telinet) since they were giving away shares just for registering at their website. Well I sent them an email and they said that I was in fact entitled to some shares so I also gained 14 shares in Travelzoo last week (worth around $120 total).

That was better then finding a dollar in my pants.
