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.

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?
