Goodbye 2006, Hello 2007

Happy new year to all our readers. Where did the time go? Nearly a month into 2007 and no news on our front - apologies all around. Here's our New Year's Resolution - a more frequent posting schedule. Let's see how long we can keep it going.

First up, Warren Buffett wasn't going to let 2006 go off gently into that good night. In late December, Berkshire Hathaway purchased TTI Inc., one of the world's largest distributors of passive and electromechanical components. As usual, the founder and current chairman and CEO, Paul Andrews, will remain in charge. Also as usual, the company's line of business is fascinating stuff - trimmers, wire and cable, electromechanical devices (oh my).

Regarding year-end lists, Buffett managed to secure a position on Forbes' list of the world's billionaires, clocking in at number 2. Of course, we couldn't manage to find a year-end list of "world's most awesomely giant donations to charity". If so, the Oracle would easily take first place, after his well-publicized gift earlier this year.

And last, what better way to start the new year than by revisiting some of the best lessons of the past? In a recent Forbes piece, the magazine sits down for Q&A with Mary Buffett, who was married to Warren's son Peter for 12 years. Mary has written or co-written several books on the Oracle, and the latest, The Tao of Warren Buffett, attempts to collect some of WEB's best advice in 125 quotes. Most of us already have a good number of Buffett-related books on our shelves and may not need another, but the article's worth a look, if only for the slide show of WEB's "Wisdom in Words".

Buffett bought a 1934 Rolls Royce for 350 Dollars and rented it out for 35 dollars a day. By the time he graduated from high school at sixteen, Buffett had saved 6,000 dollars.
