Good morning everyone, I hope the morning finds you well. 

Yesterday we had a "red" day. Late in the afternoon, they did their best to get us off the worst levels and when it was all over, we had the DOW off about 55, the S&P off about 5. In a market this tall, that's not even a rounding error. Some were blaming the fall on the increased rhetoric between NK and the US, but I don't really buy that. In the beginning acts of the war of words, the market would indeed get shook up over the strong language, but after seeing "nothing" happen time and time again, they've learned to ignore it all.

Hello all, and welcome to Monday. I hope your weekend was wonderful, and you really got a chance to enjoy it with family and friends. Ours was pretty subdued as my bride is fighting a cold that won't let go, and rest is always the best strategy.

Good morning all, we've made it to Friday. 

Well that didn't take long. Yesterday, Trump announced new sanctions against North Korea, and also stated that the Chinese would indeed be willing to stop all banking transactions with the nation. Around the Asian sphere, other nations curtailed their dealings with Kim, including stopping the shipment of oil to his country.

Hello all, good morning to you. 

So, we got past Yellen and her FOMC cronies.  The "plan" they say, is to start taking down their balance sheet in October, an exercise that will last a long long time. We also learned that 12 of 16 Fed heads still favor another rate hike this year.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. 

So today is Fed day. The Fed's spent yesterday chatting about what they're going to do with rates and QE policy. Today we get to hear the results.

First off, I'm sorry about yesterday. But this is the kind of "not quite normal" I"m talking about. The town alerted us that they'd be shutting the power down so they could fix two lift stations. They said it would go down at 10 and last "maybe " 3 hours.

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.
