    Seriously? Not even an associate degree from a community college?

    No college degree is fine and dandy if you establish and run your own company (like Bill Gates) however; it seems irresponsible to me to hand over management to a company that spends millions of dollars of shareholder value to someone with no particular education other than a high school diploma.

    If true, it would not surprise me given how the company has behaved to date.

    Your opinion, capt?

    Ugly Trading Day

    Dude,

    I am talking about management keeping simply not keeping shareholders in the loop regarding leases, sales whatever. Do you personally believe that management is doing a good job keeping shareholders informed?

    I still do not understand why the Capt supports a management team that continues to refuse to provide the company shareholders with any information about what goals (or improvements toward goals) they have made. It appears as if the capt has no interest in such distractions and simply trusts the company to treat the shareholders right.

    Appears horrifically disrespectful and demeaning to me but, hey.......... thats just me.

    OK. Mela is DOWN more than 8.25 % today. Was that what you wanted to warn me about, capt?

    Stay tuned tomorrow morning 8 AM EST Dancer Man -- capt

    **************************

    That was six hours ago, capt. I see where mela is down again and now nearly a (split adjusted) "Teen" valuation. I have received no UPS package deliver either.

    Would you like to be more specific regarding what I am "staying tuned" for ??

    Just good business.

    If I can make hundreds of thousands of dollars (or more) in exchange for Mr. Mann being given the opportunity to recover 10% of his investment in mela, what can I do?

    Sometimes ya just gotta make compromises in life.

    If it makes you feel any better capt, finding investment gems in this economy and at this time is really a challenge.

    I met with a good (and very successful) friend last night for a three hour dinner to talk about life, business and investing. We both agreed that there is precious little out there to consider at the moment.

    The current financial environment is boring. Thank God hunting season is just a few weeks away. I have an awesome elk and deer hunt scheduled for Oregon soon. I scored the use of a friend's friend's Piper Cub for game spotting which I will take up a few days before the Opening. Never flown one of those little guys before and am looking forward to some tree-top skimming with it. Should be fun.

    I Stole it Fair & Square. Everyone knows that.

    There is just not much money to be made on Mela now unless it pulls a rabbit out of the hat which, I still believe will not happen. I have no interest of going out of my way to help any long who opposed me during our little run here however; if mela did manage to turn around (which it wont), I have no problem with the capt (or any other long) gaining some of their money back as long as I can make a ton of money off the deal as well.

    It has nothing to do with my love for the longs. It is simply business.

    Like I have mentioned in the past, Capt. The day you start shouting: "I WON, I WON, I WON" will be the day I am another million bucks richer.

    If and when you ever win here, I will be celebrating with the Bashers on a 120 foot yacht somewhere in say; Greece or Italy. We will pull into port and go sightseeing, dancing etc, while the crew shops for food (or whatever we want).

    Honest to God, Capt. I am praying that Mela pulls a rabbit out of the hat and takes off. It would be virtually impossible for me NOT to be happier for you if it did.

    SEC will see what managment is doing and act-- Sorry, dont see it. If you look at their backgrounds and experience these folks come with reputable backgrounds-- capt.

    *************

    Ah..... dont see the American Poker Federation as being a requisite organization to belong to in order to run a bio-tech start up.

    Seriously capt; you are of the belief that the current management of mela is doing everything correctly with respect to keeping the shareholders of the company informed and up-to-date on their investment in this company?

    If not, do you not believe that the shareholders (owners) of the company are entitled to disclosure or do you believe that the shareholders should just "trust" management ?

    I met Kenny G. about 15 years ago. Kenny is a hobby pilot and he often took his buddy; Thomas Shelby up with him when he flew out of Burbank. We would hang out and goof on Monty Python episodes for hours.

    Anyway, Kenny G. is a stock trader and purchased a very large position of Dendreon Corp. in and around the $35/share price in early 2011. Not long afterwards, he sold his entire stake off for less than $5/share.

    It happens.........

    Just for fun, I put in around 30 stocks that I own or follow to see how Zack's rated them.
    Zack's financial analysts had a rating for each and every stock I put into their systems with the exception of one: MELA.

    One of the most well known and respected stock analytical services know to the Street and they give Mela exactly what it deserves: Non-Applicable.

    Hahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa......

    "Topless Cousin".

    Wow....... what an awesome name for a new wine!

    I believe we may have a winner here. Time to think of a varietal that would best complement the name. I suggest a sweet white (like Moscato) chilled to appeal to the younger, less sophisticated wine drinker. We can have a sexy label with a picture of a well endowed, scantly clad, beautiful young lady harvesting the grapes. Aim for the 21-25+ year old demographic.

    Ah... one of my favorite places in the world; Tanzania.

    I really do have to get back there again soon. I occasionally hear from my Chagga Tribal family there (when they walk 10 miles to the village and use the Internet Cafe to email me.

    The last time I was there, the village held a celebration dinner for myself and fellow climbers. It is kind of sad because they always serve goat meat cooked in milk which is a delicacy (and financial extravagance) for them.

    We eat just a little, allow the family to have the rest and then retire to our camp and chow down on antibiotics.

    Unlike you capt, I really dont worry about such things. Trust me, I have more important fish to fry than to worry about what you and your cohorts may be up to.

    Again; unlike you , I maintain no "Capt File" with the pathetic hope that I can someday use it to harm or discredit. That is a venue for petty, little mentalities like yourself.
