I have added a widget to show the page views, and it is so nice to see how many people are reading my blog. The followers continue to accumulate too....maybe I will get a little Gold star like Tiffany used to get when she was little(smiles)...seriously, thanks for the compliments!!!!!

Making it in the world isn't easy, but making it on the world-wide-web isn't a stroll in the park, either. You've got to have hard-core charisma, a gimlet eye, and enough talent to hold an audience, garner media attention, and persuade readers that yours is the blog to visit not just once but many times a day. And when you've got all that, you have to not sleep in your laurels!!!!I am getting there!!!!

Hola! Mabuhay! Hello!
 
"sans limites."Here are my Tidbits:

PRADA WINS!!!!

IPO went as expected!!!!
So, you’ve probably heard that Prada, the Italian luxury goods company owned and operated by designer Miuccia Prada and her husband, CEO Patrizio Bertelli, finally went public  and has officially begin trading shares on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange this Friday, June 24.
This is a huge deal, not only because there are very few public luxury goods companies (LVMH, PPR, Richemont, Burberry, and Hermes are the big ones), but because Prada chose the Hong Kong Stock Exchange to stage its IPO.
What does it mean? You probably know what an IPO–or initial public offering–is, but just in case, “An IPO is the selling of shares to the public market for the first time, in order for a company to raise money to expand operations, pay down debt, or for other corporate purposes.”
Why did it happen? “Prada decided to IPO in Hong Kong because it has less rules and regulations and more importantly, it’s close to the Chinese investor who wants to invest in luxury goods companies,” says luxury consultant Patricia Pao, whose firm, The Pao Principle, does a lot of work in China. “Also, most luxury goods companies are relying on China consumption for their growth, so they want to be close to the market.”

More important if you are allowed in before it goes public , in reality if the underwriters(Goldman Sachs) in this case allows you in before it goes public , than you will have a tidy profit!!! so JG, again thanks Goldman Sachs and Signora Prada for allowing me to do so well!!!!!

.






Do you like an IPO or a picnic? No one’s saying, but rest assured that when Prada packs a picnic, you’re guaranteed a feast every time.



Una amica Italiana molto famosa  .. mi ha detto che gli uomini non possono essere amici se non sono tuo fratello, padre , marito, ma quanta ce ne sia JG e lui è uno dei pochi uomini che possono essere amici con una bella ragazza!
A very famous Italian girlfriend .. told me that men cannot be friends if they are not your brother, father or husband, but she added there is JG and he is one of the few men who could be friends with a beautiful girl!..Well Thanks...Grazie


My Take on Japan:

Tokyo, consumer and reverential
Despite the tsunami and Fukushima, Tokyo, far from the center of the tragedy, is offering visitors its proverbial courtesy and that contradict the traditional and futuristic city which makes it one of the most attractive cities in the world. And now it is cheaper to travel there

One of the more enjoyable aspects of learning a foreign language like Japanese is what I call the "joy of enlightenment," when you're able to work out a puzzling linguistic problem, correctly write a difficult kanji or comprehend something for the first time. I've experienced this many times  as a learner of Japanese, the first time I heard dare da! dare da! dare da! in the classic Science Ninja Team Gatchaman opening song and understood what they were saying, "Who is it? Who is it? Who is it?" I knew I had arrived in proficiency!!!




A teacher explains the art of tailoring to a student at the Brioni tailoring school in Italy
A teacher explains the art of tailoring to a student at the Brioni tailoring school

“The fashion house Brioni is best known for dressing James Bond in black tie and creating hand-sewn custom suits that start out at $4,000 and run as high as $47,000. But this fall it is adding something a lot more humble to its lineup: a T-shirt.But the reality is that :”Every common man dreams of having a Brioni suit or a dress jacket. It’s the ultimate classic. A Brioni suit is akin to a Rolex watch(Day-Date President) ,an Hublot watch,  an Hermes handbag, a Prada trench coat… they stand the test of time. However, only very special men get the opportunity to have their very own made-to-measure Broni suit or jacket!!!!...and of course Brioni is one of JG's favorite,,lest I forget even if you are fat the Brioni suit or jacket can manage to make you look slimmer....and Brioni is the dress for Capos of the Mafia........





faccendiere

[fac-cen-diè-re] s.m. (f. -ra
  • • Chi si dà da fare in traffici spesso poco chiari; procacciatore d'affari, mediatore senza scrupol

    faccendiere-wheeler-dealer, (shady) operator

And Signore Berlusconi is making a James Bond killing sign to a woman Russian reporter that dared to ask Vladimir Putin about a secret lover!!!..these guys think they are above us all....











 I recently received the prototype of the K Fujitsu computer, and it is so fast,,,really fast!!!




Latte & Macchiato

There is so much to this film to decipher....if you watch , see if you can decipher it!!!! I am
not a fan of Brad Pitt but he was great in this film!!!!





The 48 Laws of Power is a 1998 book by Robert Greene and Joost Elffers. The book shares thematic elements with Niccolò Machiavelli's The Prince[1] and has been compared to Sun-Tzu's classic treatise The Art of War.....I have read it five times...amazing!!!


עַם יִשְרָאֵל חַי, Am Yisrael Chai- The People of Israel Live,,,and once again I love the tradition of girls serving in the IDF...this way they appreciate Israel much more!!!





I love FEDEX...as they are able to find JG all over the world to deliver documents, magazines, books..dvd's,
gifts and much more . It also allows JG  to send expensive gifts to those who deserve them!!!



I got this advanced copy by Fedex(smiles)....it is interesting...entertaining
L’Amour....In the charming new French comedy The Names of Love, a Jewish man, the square son of Holocaust survivors, falls in love with an Arab hippie who sleeps with right-wingers to turn them liberal.....

 

 


O morango é uma das principais frutas do inverno. Além de saboroso e com seu característico sabor azedinho, ele ainda ajuda na saúde das artérias, tem ação antioxidante e ajuda a estruturar a pele. Com um montão da fruta dá pra fazer….The strawberry is a major winter fruit. Besides tasty, with its characteristic sour taste, it also helps the health of arteries, has antioxidant action and helps the skin structure. With a lot of fruit ... it can be done.


I do not drink but they tell me this is a good combination..I prefer strawberries with chocolates but only once in awhile.

E a sempre sexy combinação de morangos com champagne..and it is always sexy the combination of strawberries with champagne.
And Mr Goldstein your portugese is ótimo(excellent)
And by the way my orthodontist once told me that my mouth tasted always like strawberries and I have always been told my kisses are strawberry like(smiles)..the theory is that if you eat them constantly the ensymes stay in your system so when you wake up your mouth is fresh not like top models mouths that........no more...I like how the ITalians say, Stop, of course they say with an accent!!! so I will stop, but tobacco smells comes to mind, but stop there JG..




In the early summer the fragrance of fig is wonderful !




You cannot get better than this. ..is for Royalty and specially made..a little like Dior Addict with a men's fragrance of Dolce&Gabbana







My Parting Shots:



If you do not expect to accept and invitation, do not encourage one.






I have been following the weather around the world for the last few months. And in many parts around the planet,  it has never been as cold or hot, some setting records, some equaling records. I read the weather reports that some of these weather records were equivalent to those of 1918. And in 1918 there were very few cars, no emissions, not much electricity, no carbon foot prints...yet the weather now is the same as in 1918.. so common sense tells you that the earth cures itself. I am not a scientist and I do not need to be. as this is elementary, Mr Watson would agree with me. I rest my case...so all you global warming kooks need to get a life and stop lying to people.

You can't make this stuff up. You knew it was going to happen because the lunatics are so predictable. The earthquake and tsunami were caused by global warming/climate change according to some. You almost have to believe these kooks pray for a natural catastrophe just so they can blame global warming/climate change. There is no GW/CC, and it did not cause the quake and tsunami, anyone who believes that is a kook that needs mental help.






this is called the "Marocchino"

it is a single shot of espresso with foam milk

and coco powder... favoloso


Caffeine

on paper cup or a plastic one....remember only crystal or worse scenario, ceramic





Honoring Prada


On the Cover | Prada's Repeat Performance



Mario Prada

the founder of PRADA

always loved this design.



miuccia mystique



there is so much mystery surrounding miuccia prada... a onetime communist and mime student who still lives in the apartment she grew up in...she seems to be a designer who loves to toil in her own thoughts. it is often interesting to watch her after a runway show and see her peak out of the runway. miuccia herself, has a great sense of style. her signature look is a full pleated skirt, a constellation of diamond brooches on a cardigan, a simple headband, or a unique collection of bracelets. she represents the idea of italian style, which is wearing clothes with great ease and mixing it up with the right amount of accessories.



I say, might I ask, if one doesn't live in my perpetual party, what is it that one does these days to live up there?(smiles)


Titles are so bourgeois, don't you think? It is what it is.


Random thoughts......as you are getting older......


Molding Mask at Molding Clinic....of course


One word about Botox:YES



A word about sunscreen: Yes. Wear it. Every day. Even if it's cloudy.





 Did I tell you something you did not know? If I did, than you are better for it!!!!






Today is the 5th anniversary of the abduction of Gilad Shalit.....those holding him...release him and let his family and those who love him to be in Peace. Shabbat Shalom >>>JG

More images of Tel Aviv


Dizengoff St.(one of my favorites) has many of the best designer shops crowding its pavements.
The fame of this street is almost as old as Tel-Aviv itself. People come on weekends from areas around Tel-Aviv, just to stroll down this street. Today Dizengoff has the best designer shops in Tel-Aviv, though most of the designers have a second shop in the Shenkin or Masrik area...one of the best streets to have a Macchiato and people watch.
Impressive....... Tel Aviv Opera Tower!!!

I get lots of emails concerning my blog. When I read them it makes me want to continue to write. If I entertain, tell you something you did not know, than it is worth it. Here are a few comments.. I received:

 your blog is too short... make it longer...


Is a better-Best one, Babe ;)

What is answer to "best?"
This One

Eres un genio- You are a Genius

Je suis très excité quand je vois le lien de votre blog sur mon e-mail-i get very excited when I see the link of your blog on my email



I arrived in Singapore, here is already Sunday. I am here for a couple of days and than returning to Hong Kong.  The so much awaited Prada IPO(Initial Public Offering) is out on Friday....24-6 or 6-24 for others. I had a two hour walk along Orchard Road and up to Marina Bay and back to where I am staying. And Orchard Road is a sort of Rodeo Drive!!!!


Here go my Tidbits:




What Does Front Running Mean?The unethical practice of a broker trading an equity based on information from the analyst department before his or her clients have been given the information.
For example, analysts and brokers who buy up shares in a company just before the brokerage is about to recommended the stock as a strong buy are practicing front running.
Another example is a broker who buys himself 20,000 shares in a stock just before his or her brokerage plans to buy a large block of 400,000 shares. And this practice is quite common, in the

rest of the world- is Kosher to do  it.  But in USA, they do not have a sense of humor, and it is not Kosher. However  the ultra ultra rich still do it and get away with it!!!!!


But the low fees also underscore Prada’s appeal. Banks tend to be willing to offer concessions on deals that are likely to be successful. And despite its rich valuation and recent market turbulence, institutional investors have already placed orders for five times as many shares as Prada is selling.




My Take on Japan:
Los Angeles is a special place to the Japanese. Like Hawaii and New York, it's an area they're often quite familiar with, and there's a sizable community of Japanese expats living in the Los Angeles area. While the "real" America might be mysterious and unnerving for the average Japanese person, Los Angeles is generally "terra cognita" for many Japanese, who know they can find familiar foods and services in Little Tokyo or Torrance or wherever, and are more relaxed there.

One word  the Japanese use when receiving some kind of compliment is okage-sama de (oh-KAG-geh sah-mah deh), a phrase which literally means "thanks to you," which is a little weird since the person doing the complimenting probably had nothing to do with the acquisition of the skill in question. Often when you say something nice to a Japanese person, they'll turn the kindness back onto you with this phrase.

A certain famous female Japanese figure skater , asked me,,did I lose my baby face?,,my cuteness?...my answer was 
silence!!! the last time I commented to her question of what to fix (I said- "start with the ears") , I got silence from her....so now I gave silence!!!!





petra

She wants to buy it all....and she can...she will.. she has-  but it is still a gold and
gilded cage!!!!




There hasn’t been a Jewish Miss America since Bess Meyerson in 1945. With Loren Galler Rabinowitz set to compete for her crown Saturday.//and Loren is a Harvard Grad...and Jewish and Israeli girls are some of the most beautiful women-girls in the world....yes they are!!!

Y me gustó mucho. -The other day I had the opportunity(the privilege) to watch the pilot episode of one of the most awaited series in television....Pan Am.....it will be like Mad Men but in the sky..the setting was when flying was a privilege for just a few...I predict it will be a big success ...I liked it very much,



Definicion de Botineras
Hay famosas y desconocidas y se las conoce como “las botineras“, chicas que corren detrás de jugadores en busca de promoción o dinero- Famous and unknown girls that are known in Argentina as the botineras...girls that chase futbol(soccer players) in search of promoting themselves and getting money!!!!..but the world is full of them!!!

Silvio Berlusconi adore poser entouré de très jolies femmes. Le fantasme du harem?
Silvio Berlusconi adore poser entouré de très jolies femmes. Le fantasme du harem

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi looks in the mirror and fancies himself a playboy of the old school. However, it is a subtle craft , the art of the playboy-the creation of a life of tasteful public and
private pleasure-and one that is completely lost in the rich of today.. Many men think they are playboys but they land wide of the mark. Surrounding yourself with champagne, fast friends and paid escorts is the very definition of "loser". (It's the same with men who purchase high-tech boats, private planes, and tall Russian women.. They think they are Bond, but really they are blofeld) True Playboys love women-they love being around them, and they specially love women with class , good manners and no drama.

Goldstein is 6'3" does he pass the audition?(smiles)...I had not used an Asada Mao third person for awhile!!!!



SUENA EN MI iPhone4: Pues desde ayer por la noche, incansablemente, uno de los temas de la banda sonora de Midnight in Paris, “Let´s do it, let´s fall in love”, de Cole Porter. Si algún día me caso, quiero bailar ese tema-Emotion in Motion , claro primero mis musicas judias preferidas!!!! In my iPhone4: from last night, I have played constantly one of the themes of the movie- Midnight in Paris- "Let's do it, let's fall in love". IF some day I get married, I want to dance to this song,.. Emotion in Motion.... but of course also all the Jewish classic songs that are played at Jewish weddings!!!!



"El libro electrónico es torpe, lento y poco fiable"- " The electronic book is clumsy, slow and unreliable"
and I will add impersonal too!!! I detest it!!!!..and I love the smell of
bookstores....it sends me!!!!!





You must be smart, sensitive and a romantic to read poems from the past and present
I love and always loved this poem..........She Walks in Beauty..........................and Lord Byron is one of my favorite poets!!!...and now we know who inspired John Galliano to dress outrageously!!!
George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron. 1788–1824



Bolshy
1) a Bolshevik, or someone accused of having Bolshevik (communist) leanings).

(more commonly) an adjective meaning that someone is very assertive in the pursuit of something and/or hostile to authoritarian  maneuvers by others

 A bolshy person gets cross if confronted and is likely to say "what's it to you?", "mind your own business" and stuff like that a lot.







My niece Tiffany likes Selena Gomez....so I got her the advanced copy of the Movie -Monte Carlo- starring Selena.....it made her day, and her happiness made mine!!!!..Tiffany also likes
and admires Miranda Cosgrove  //and by the way the movie was filmed mostly in Hungary..typical
of Hollywood to use exteriors of Paris and other places and film someplace else!!!!

While on the subject of Hollywood and its films...i totally dislike the films where they are chase scenes all over, I had to endure through this torture at a film party , at
a very rich private home....the film was Fast and Furious5, and the host was shocked when I told him that the film was filmed in Naranjito, Puerto Rico..rather than in the
favelas of Rio.  And the scenes of Ipanema, were only; that word again, exteriors!!!!




Tom Ford
 Tom Ford was not too nice when he told this to a very very rich person:
"Tom, I went to your shop. I couldn't buy a handkerchief. Tom said, 'You know why? I don't want big fat guys like you in my shop' . . .and the so called fat guy answered" But I think he's making a mistake because big guys like me have the money." //yes they do , remember what JG writes,,fat, old and bald usually get all they want, including gorgeous girls...they buy
them in a sense....and this same guy(which I know) that could not buy because of being fat, is a
Playboy(smiles)...really(smiles)....and he is quite candid,,,,he said this the other day
"I am open about my rules and regulations: “I don’t like dirty. That’s why I hate cigarettes. A little bit of alcohol is O.K., but no drugs. And I like to sleep alone because I wake up, I walk around, I bring my computer with me to bed, I have a great time.” But what if that offends a partner?, I wondered. “Once they’ve slept a couple of nights with me, they hear me snore, they’re happy to move” to a guest room....and snoring is not only reserved to just anyone....there are
models and...stop JG...yes i will not go there(smiles)....and if you have been living in Mars...Tom Ford is of Gucci fame...and by the way, JG does not snore, If you don't know,  than you don't know!!!
