Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
Christmas tree decked out with dollars 11 million U.S. worth of gold, at the Emirates Palace hotel, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The hotel’s general manager, Hans Olbertz, was quoted in local newspapers Thursday as saying the 43-foot faux fir has 131 ornaments that include gold and precious stones including diamonds and sapphires. The $11 million symbol of the season has become the latest extravagance at the Emirates Palace hotel, which boasts its own marina, heliport and a vending machine that pops out small gold bars.
