Another day grinds into existence after a late night without paying attention to markets. At least I did not hear the 5:30 am garbage trucks. Cannot say I was in the mood to get anything done. Was going to use the day doing some garden stuff - pottered around doing that. Scrolled a lot of Facebook and Twitter. Meta made me quake - the man thinks he walks on water. Maybe he will get a seat on Elon Musk outer space station to save the world.
I did venture out to do the shopping. This is a huge stress with masks and check ins and scared people
A few photos of summer colour - paper daisy is an Australian native grown from seed. Taken all winter and grown super tall
Gazania grace. Did get out on the bike to ride down the hill with a view to finding at least a tongue orchid in flower
Rose hyacinth orchid is flowering on the other side. Maybe the one this side would be open - it was high above the road well above head height. Could Indiana Jones get up there?

Dipodium roseum close up
I do not like riding through the national park when it is windy. This branch came down on the road after I had cycled down. Happens in front of the bike at 50 km/h is a big accident. I did clear the debris away. One car dead on the road up the hill - they drove over it.
Stopped to check tongue orchid - a new bud forming.
Close up. Stopped further up the hill at a known spot - a flower open
Another hill ridden for Kids Cancer
Spent some time analyzing a few trade ideas. Oil service stocks are lagging oil stocks. Looked to see which laggards to invest in rather than just following the sector.
Also spent some time testing out two stock investing simulations using model portfolios to see how they fit into a business idea we are working on.
Dinner: Salmon sous vide
Trade action: Bought BKR, NOV, HP - all oil services. In crypto bought TFUEL. Short TLT.
October I ride for Kids Cancer - just went over 600 kms. Donate here https://mymark.mx/KidsCancerRide or send HIVE with a memo GCCOZ and I will send Aussie Dollars to the charity.
