                         Pictures from the Past---Jeff Ottle—2002


“This is Jeff Ottle.  We got to know one another a few years back when I

was with Imperial Business Credit in Rancho Bernardo, CA.


“I am glad to update you that I am now with Wells Fargo Financial

Leasing, Inc. as their Assistant District Manager.  I live and work in

Nampa, Idaho - responsible for the southwest Idaho territory along with

eastern Oregon and part of Nevada.  I love my job and living in Idaho

near family and friends is simply great!


“It's super being back in the origination side of the industry.  I work

with farmers, dairymen, equipment dealers and commercial real estate

companies.  We finance buildings (existing or new projects), land,

equipment (new and used) and vehicles (new or used) in both the

commercial and agricultural marketplaces.


“I would very much like to contact old buddies and re-establish valued

friendships.  Upon leaving IBC I joined Comdisco for 3 years and got

into very heavy/technical residual value work on high tech electronics

equipment.  I liked it and value having done work in a different aspect

of our business.  Then, Comdisco bankruptcy which I went through, then

laid off and out of work.  Did a couple temporary things, then struck

gold with my job at Wells Fargo Financial Leasing.  This made possible

a dream I've had for over 10 years, that of relocating to the God given

state of Idaho.  Oh my, it is grand here.  To you California nuts, I am

glad to be ‘outa’  there.”


Jeff Ottle


(We miss you here, Jeff, as I remember you were quite efficient, especially

excellent follow-up.  Sorry you left as you won’t get to vote in the

California nuts campaign. editor )




“Sobig” virus is getting bigger


We have received at Leasing News over a dozen  “Sobig” on Tuesday.  One clogged our mail server and we had to manually delete it.  Wednesday we continued to receive them, but our PC-cillin blocked them.  We printed Wednesday a notice this worm was continuing to spread. It surely did, as Thursday it not only hit #1 on the Trend Micro list, but it passed the Klenz worm.


It has become the most active.  #1, never open an attachment from Leasing

News, as we don’t send attachments.   We had many “administrative warnings”

that we sent a virus, but we did not.  It invaded a leasing mail box and replicated

itself under various names, and like a chain letter, seems to be working

its way in the industry.



As a side note, I laugh at the time: “So big!”   When Sue plays with our

four month old grandson, she has got him to raise his hands over his

head when she does the same, and says out loud, “So Big!!!”

“1099- The armies of the First Crusade defeated the Saracens at the Battle of Ascalon (an historic Palestinian city on the Mediterranean), one month after they had captured Jerusalem. As they did in the Holy City, they killed all ‘non-believers,’ including men, women, and children. And you wonder why Caucasians are not liked in the middle east.”


This happened in America?  Damn!


(Sorry, couldn't help myself) J


Rodriguez, JR


(Please read last sentence. It is pertinent to today's news and our soldiers in the Middle East.  We often have Canadian news, if you have noticed, plus if a Jazz

musician is born in the UK, his birthday is still saluted, and from time-to-time,

certain events clearly have affected our local history, and they are noted.  It

is just like history shows slaves revolting, killing, running away to free countries

and states, and this caused much reaction, plus fear and hatred on both sides.

The revolt of Nat Turner* was yesterday. There are centuries of our “Crusaders” killing in the Holy City everyone who was not Christian.  From an historic viewpoint, the Christians and the Muslims have not been friendly with each other and only recently have we begun to “live together”  here in the United States. So I thought the date in history might bring in perspective some of the feelings that have been passed down for ages of  foreigners, and particularly, Christian armies, occupying, or trying to occupy, the Middle East areas. editor )




After 10+ years in the very unstable leasing industry I am throwing in the towel.  I am tired of building a territory, working it to a good productive level, and then having some other company come in, acquire the company, and fire all the sales people.  There is absolutely no loyalty or compassion in this marketplace.  I've been on this merger/acquisition/firing merry-go-round three times in four years and that's it, I am getting out.


Please unsubscribe me from your daily email news letter.


Thank you and good luck to you,

Dear Kit,


Thank you for the outstanding news.  I've been reading to your

newsletter for the last year but will have to discontinue service.  It

is important to let you know that I have found it more useful than any

other type of "leasing news" out there.  Presently, I am making a major

career shift into trading energy derivatives and won't be able to keep

up with your notifications.  I wish you all the best and hope everyone

out there in the leasing world is reading your newsletter on a daily!

*Nate Turner Revolt: 1831- you probably read about this in history as there were many such rebellions but one of the first on this large scale took place in Southampton County, VA.  It was led by Nat Turner, an African-American slave and religious visionary who believed that he was divinely chose to lead his fellow slaves to freedom.  With seven accomplices, Turner killed his owner Joseph Travis, and the Travis family in their sleep, then led more than 70 followers in a two-day revolt in which 55 to 60 whites were killed.  State militiamen and armed whites confronted the rebels near Jerusalem, VA, and killed as many as 100 slaves, a number of whom had not taken part in the rebellion. Turner escaped, but was caught six weeks later and hanged on November 11.

  This Day in American History




    1654-The first Jews to arrive in America were Marra­nos, Spanish Jews who had converted to Chris­tianity in order to escape torture and death un­der the Inquisition. Marranos were part of Co­lumbus’s voyage of discovery in 1492 and of Spanish explorations and settlements in the 16th century. A handful of Jews came to the English colonies in Virginia and Massachusetts in the first half of the 17th century, but most historians consider the first permanent Jewish settler in America to have been Jacob Barsimson of Holland, who landed at the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam (the future New York City.) A month later, a group of 23 Jews from Recife, Brazil, arrived in New Amsterdam seeking refuge from Portu­guese persecution. Against the wishes of the colony’s governor, Peter Stuyvesant, the Dutch West India Company allowed them to stay, provided “the poor among them should not be­come a burden to the Company or the commu­nity, but be supported by their own nation.” They had left

their homeland to escape religious prosecution.  While some of the prejudice was brought to

the New World, as different immigrants arrived, they learned to accept each other and work


    1670- In Massachusetts, English-born colonial missionary John Eliot, 66, founded an Indian church at Martha's Vineyard, with educated Indians Hiacoomes and Tackanash appointed pastor and teacher, respectively.

    1771-The talk of the colonies was a dwarf exhibited as a theatrical attraction.  His name is not known, but he was a man, 53 years of age and 22 inches high, shown at the house of Widow Bignall, next door to King’s Head Tavern, a little above Mr. Hancock’s wharf in Boston, MA.  Admission was one shilling.  His appearance was advertised in the Massachusetts Spy this date.

    1775- King George III proclaims colonies to be in open rebellion, vows

to send more troops.

    1834-Birthday of Samuel Pierpoint Langley, American astronomer, physicist and aviation pioneer for whom Langley air Force Base, VA, is named. Born at Roxbury, MA.  Langley died at Aiken, SC, Feb. 27,1906. 1846-Without a shot fired, the US annexes New Mexico.

    1847-What would later become the world famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir gave its first public performance at Salt Lake City, Utah, for an outdoor meeting of the Church of

Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Widely known for its concert tours, recordings and weekly radio and

television broadcast from Temple Square, the choir’s radio program “ Music and the Spoken Word” is the longest continuously running radio program in network history, dating back to 1929.

    1851- the first yacht to win in the international yacht race was America, owned by a syndicate headed by Commodore John Cox Stevens of the New York Yacht Club. They won what was known as the “hundred Guinea Cup.”  The trophy, latter turned over to the New York Yacht Club, where you

may view it today, became known as the America’s Cup. ***

   1865- William Sheppard of New York City patented liquid soap.

   1901-Henry LeLand founded The Cadillac Company, named after eighteenth century French explorer Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, founder of the city of Detroit. The Cadallac reached its height of popularity during the 1950s. The Cadillac Debutante, which debuted at the Waldorf Astoria, was based on the play The Solid Gold Cadillac. Cadillac sales decreased during the 1970s as the American car market experienced an influx of smaller imports, but luxury car sales, Cadillac included, have rebounded in recent years, particularly its SUV Escalade, said to be stolen four more times than any other car today; the most frequently stolen vehicle on the road, according to insurance claim statistics.

    1906- the first “Victrola” was made by the Victor Talking Machine Co., Camden, NJ.

    1916-Birthday of jazz pianist/bandleader Sonny Thompson

    1920 – Birthday of Ray Bradbury (writer: Fahrenheit 451, The Toynbee Convector, Martian Chronicles) .

    1926-Birthday of Bob Flanagan, lead singer of the '50s pop group the Four Freshmen.

  1917-Birthday of blues man John Lee Hooker, whose boogie rhythms provided a link with rock 'n' roll, born in Clarksdale, Mississippi. He moved to Detroit in 1943, and began recording towards the end of the decade. Hooker's first record, "Boogie Chillun," and his 1951 recording of "I'm In the Mood" - not to be confused with the Glenn Miller tune - are reputed to have sold a million copies each. Many rock bands covered his songs and in 1970 Hooker recorded an album with Canned Heat. Hooker made a brief appearance in "The Blues Brothers" movie in 1980.

    1932- Philippa Duke Schuyler birthday, black-American pianist and writer started composing music at age three and at 12 her award- winning symphonic work was played by the Detroit Symphony. She has appeared as guest soloist, performing her own works with major symphony orchestras in the U.S. She died May 9,1967 in a helicopter accident in Da Nang, Vietnam, where she had gone in her new career as a reporter.

    1936-Birthday of drummer Lex Humphries, New York City

    1938-Birthday of rockabilly singer Dale Hawkins, born in Goldmine, Louisiana.

   1938- Count Basie records for Decca records, “Jumpin’ at the Woodside.”

    1939- Julian Seth Kahn of New York City received a patent for a “spray can.”  It was equipped with an inexpensive disposable valve mechanism.  Under controlled pressure, it dispensed such items as whipped cream, paints, pharmaceuticals, and insecticides.

    1945-Many do not realize that the Vietnam Conflict actually began this day in 1945, less than a week after the Japanese surrender ended World War II, a team of Free French parachuted into southern

Indochina in response to a successful coup by a Communist guerrilla named Ho Chi Minh in the

French Colony.

In 1848, Queen Victoria authorized the creation of a "One Hundred Guinea Cup" of solid silver (134oz), 27" tall for a yacht race "open to all nations."


In 1851 one American boat challenged 16 English ships. The Royal Yacht "Squadron" of Cowes, England was the host. The New York Yacht Club entry was the schooner "America." W.H. Brown,              the designer, was so confident of his design that he refused payment if "America" did not win. The oft-quoted remark by the Queen was sparked by a great lead and victory around the Isle of Wight over the 16 other yachts.

She asked, "Who is first?"

"America" has won, she was told.
