Happy St. Patrick's day everyone.   I very much wish to hope you all the best for your "Holiday".  I read some astounding figures about how much corned beef and cabbage will be cooked up this weekend and it was truly amazing. My wife's half Irish, and yes...at some point this weekend I too will be engaging in some.  ( Note.... If you take a nice slice of corned beef before you drown it in water and the spices, and put it in your smoker (If you have one) it makes a darned tasty snack)

Good morning everyone. Welcome to post hike day. 

So we got the hike, and the market moved higher on it. We suspected that would be the result simply because of past experience with things that would naturally be thought of as "not market friendly"

Good morning all, welcome to Wednesday, Fed day and the Debt Ceiling day. 

Before I get started, I have to announce this.... The deal is "ON" for us today. This is the important note I posted Monday morning...

Hello all, Happy Tuesday to you....

Water torture. Really.  That's what this market reminds me of. Day after day we slip and slide, sideways and down a bit. Nothing major, nothing to panic over...just this low volume "nothing"

Good morning all, and a big welcome back from your weekend. 

NOTE>>>  This is going to sound goofy, but it is, what it is.  I might have to be gone during some portion of Wednesday. My wife, who's been in some form of the medical/healthcare industry for years, signed a contract all the way back in November to buy a home healthcare agency for herself. But because of delays, licenses, etc, the "closing" has been postponed several times. Now it looks like it might actually happen Wednesday. ( We thought that two months ago too and it didn't happen)  So the heads up is...if the close is on, I'll be gone a portion of the day. If it's postponed yet again, then... I'll be here.

Hi Friends, it's Friday and because of a strange anomaly, it's Jobs Friday despite it not being the first Friday of the month.  That doesn't happen very often for sure

Good morning everyone, welcome to Thursday. 

So yesterday the market was hugging the flat line for most of the day, and then late in the session oil puked, and fell by the most in over a year. That got everyone's attention and they scrambled to take some stock off the table. This morning oil is again a bit weak. So we've got WTI at 49.07.

Hello everyone, welcome to hump day. 

So the very first thing I heard this am when I flipped on the computers was that the Times is stating that Caterpillar was involved allegedly in tax evasion, and hiding things to keep their stock prices up.

Hello folks, happy Tuesday to ya....

The creaking and groaning continues.  Yesterday they couldn't pull off the late day "stick save" that we've seen so many times in the past. They tried a couple times but when the bell rang, the DOW ended the show at 20,954 down 51 on the day. Then overnight, the European market was soggy as Germany saw the biggest fall in German industrial orders since the depths of the global financial crisis.  That spread around the globe and our futures are a bit red because of it all.

Gooood morning all, welcome to a new day and week. 

As usual, I'll take a couple seconds to chat about our weekend, not that anyone would care really. I only do it as "suggestions" for any others that might be traveling or visiting down our way. Our general mode of operation is that Saturday we do a bit of running around, top off the groceries, etc. etc. Then Sunday after Church we generally bike the paved Venetian trail, which ends at Capserson beach.  And then we stroll the beach for a couple miles, play in the water, get some sun and then walk and ride our way back. But we've done if for so long, we decided it's time to try a month of doing something different. Two weekends ago we walked the 4 mile round trip on The Tampa/St.Pete skyway pier. Last weekend we put in about 4 miles in the Robinson nature preserve.
