Berkshire Hathaway

Wow, this company is just all over the map.   They own, among other things, Ben Bridge Jewelers, Business Wire, FlightSafety, Fruit of the Loom, GEICO, Dairy Queen, Nebraska Furniture Mart, See's Candies, Justin Boots, Kirby (vacuum cleaners), World Book, Benjamin Moore (paint), McLane (trucking), Acme Brick Company, Garanimals (children's clothing), the Pampered Chef, Clayton Homes, MidAmerican Energy Company and dozens more.  No wonder William Buffett is so freaking rich.

Damn, I just missed the annual stockholder meeting.  It was last Saturday.  And it was local, too.

How could you miss it? You get your credentials mailed to ya every year. I stoped going to them last year because its nothing but a bunch of uppity white folks pining for as much free shit as they can get their hands on. the meeting itself is always entertaining, but the free food, booze and trinkets just aren't worth it.... so many damn pushy people. It is nice to get %30 off at borsheims during the weekend.
