Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a pleasant one for you all. I've written enough Hurricane news for now, so let me just say all is getting better day by day.  The ONLY fly in the ointment I see right now is that today at 10 am, they're going to turn off the power for about 3 hours, as they have to replace a couple "sewer lift stations" in our area. 

But at least it's scheduled, not some "out of the blue"  power outtage.

Good morning all, welcome to Friday.

Just as we thought we were all in the clear, the power blipped out on us yesterday at 3 pm, and didn't come back until 9. I wasn't about to go back to the generators, and just waited it out. It's amazing how fast your home can go from about 77 degrees to 87 degrees when it's 110 degrees in the sun.

Hello all, my grind continues,  but to be honest, I have it so much better than so many that I should just keep my mouth shut. We got power back yesterday, however it took quite a while for cable to come back and it's not that stable. Internet is...iffy at best.

Good Morning everyone, what an adventure it's been down here. One of these days I'll tell you about all of it because I could write a novel about the ordeal.  Are we all safe? Yes. Was everything smooth? Not on your life. Just for a "for instance" Me and several of my friends had booked rooms in the Hyatt hotel in Sarasota. They told us on the phone that they'd be a great place to hunker down, as they had generators, food for the restaurant and built to very modern spec's.  So we figured we'd board up our homes, and shelter there.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday. 

First off let me start with this.... I'm going to be preoccupied with Irma today. This monster is still bearing down on us and I'm going to use a lot of today to prepare my place as best as possible. Judging by the latest maps, there's simply no way out of this mess. It's going to land on Florida somewhere, and with the wind cone as big as it is, there's no place in Florida that won't get blasted.  I've got a lot to do. Even gasoline is a problem. Most stations are out and the ones that still have fuel often have 30 or more cars in line.

In a most remarkable happenstance, both the DOW and the S&P dipped below their 50 day moving averages yesterday and "just like dat" they both bounced up and over said levels. It must be magic, no?

Good morning all, welcome back from your long weekend. As always I truly hope you shared it with friends and family and really enjoyed yourselves. Ours wasn't as great as it could have been, simply because at the wife's office, the phone wouldn't stop ringing. Now normally you welcome excess business, But when it's labor day weekend and no one wants to work...it's hard to find coverage!  But hey, we got through it

Nine. Yes it is month 9. I am actually having a hard time writing that. How on earth can it be September already. 2017 is still young, isn't it? Evidently not, because today is the first of September. Only 4 months left in this one. 

Wow.

Hello all, welcome to the market that can not die. Or so it seems. 

On the 8th of August we saw the S&P put in a closing high of 2480.  Then we plunged, bounced, plunged further and bounced. 

It looked for all intents that we were in the beginning stages of stair stepping lower. A controlled take down.

Hello everyone, welcome to hump day.  

Yesterday they wanted to put on the show of bravado, and pull the market back up from its 'north korea" missile dip. Well, they did it just as we figured they might. In fact, not only did they pull the DOW up from a 100 point loss, they tacked on another almost 60 green points. It was all great theatre, and  kept the bull dreams alive.
