    Yesterday at lunch with friends we discussed many things. Surprisingly, the recent stock market crashes were not on the discussion agenda. Perhaps they should have been - this morning our friend emailed us some interesting market predictions:

    With all the turmoil in the market today and the collapse of Lehman Bros and Acquisition of Merrill Lynch by Bank of America, this might be some good advice. For all of you with any money left, be aware of these expected mergers so you can get in on the ground floor and make some BIG bucks.

    Watch for these consolidations in later this year:

    1.) Hale Business Systems, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Fuller Brush, and W.R. Grace Co. will merge and become:
    Hale, Mary, Fuller, Grace.

    2.) PolyGram Records, Warner Bros., and Zesta Crackers join forces and become:
    Poly, Warner Cracker.

    3.)3M will merge with Goodyear and become:

    4. Zippo Manufacturing, Audi Motors, Dofasco, and Dakota Mining will merge and become:

    5. FedEx is expected to join its competitor, UPS, and become:

    6. Fairchild Electronics and Honeywell Computers will become:
    Fairwell Honeychild.

    7. Grey Poupon and Docker Pants are expected to become:
    Poupon Pants.

    8. Knotts Berry Farm and the National Organization of Women will become:
    Knott NOW!

    And finally...

    9. Victoria 's Secret and Smith &Wesson will merge under the new name:

    Although my chemistry professor is all but crying. I have a feeling he watched his retirement go "that a way". Poor guy.
