Happy Tuesday and Happy Annual Medical Checkup Day. One thing for sure, some people know how to pass their time while waiting for their appointment…

Today is also the birthday of Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computers (his net worth is $100 million). If you wonder why his net worth is much lower than Steve Jobs’s estate ($10 billion), it is because he sold all of his shares in 1985. Apple stock increased its value by 1,230 since then… big mistake!

Let’s make it an awesome Tuesday!
