So, It’s 2018 Now

 

It’s Monday morning. Right this moment, things don’t feel a lot different than yesterday morning and yet the calendar tells me that it is a “new year”.  Since I didn’t go out and party on New Years Eve, I’m not terribly tired nor hung over. That’s a blessing.  So, what does this thing called 2018 have in store for us?

A lot I imagine.

Humbled
 
At the bottom of every letter, there’s a “donate” button. I put it there about a year ago, because we had folks over the years that tell us “we don’t do any investing, but I like reading your letters, is there any way I can toss you a few bucks?”   

Well this week I got notice of a donation, and figured it had to be a mistake. I’m not talking thousands, but it was quite large, and I contacted the donor. I said thank you for the donation, but surely you made a mistake. He said there was no mistake, and that he has enjoyed our letters and wanted to help keep them coming.  But what got me all emotional was when he said he forwards my letters to his daughters, because he thinks some of them are important enough that he wants them to read it.

Good morning everyone, and welcome to a new day. 

NOTE>>  Today my wife is throwing a little Holiday party for her employees to drop by the office, pick up a gift, and have a bite to eat. So chances are good that I won't be posting an afternoon update, I'll probably be helping her host her little gathering.

Good morning everyone, welcome to Wednesday. 

I'm not sure what planet we're on right now.  I used to think that we were all hanging out on earth, and things were pretty much at least in the realm of normality. But over the last few months, reality has left the scene and it has been replaced with something foreign.

Hope for the Best
 
I’ve said this a few times in various newsletters of the past.  The fact is, that your entire existence is reliant on other people. Without the drilling, there’s no oil, no gas. Without the electric company, there’s no power. Without the farmers, there’s no food. Without the town/county most would have no water. On and on it goes. Where would you get rope or a rubber band, or a piece of wire, or a new knife, if “someone else” didn’t make it? While you seem to be independent, you are connected to the system at the hip.  We’re like one huge organism, and each part of it interacts with other parts to keep the whole thing alive.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. As always I hope it was a really good one for you all. My wife had a fun day Saturday, as she wanted to get a new dress for the wedding she's going to in NJ. Her niece is getting married in November and she spent the day finding just the right dress and accessories.

Good morning all, we've made it to Friday. Oh and Friday the 13th no less. I guess that's fitting for an October, considering Halloween and this spooky market. 

So they used yesterday as their pause day. The DOW faded off about 30 points, the S&P fell by about 4. Is that significant? In a 23K market, that's not even a rounding error.

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.

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.

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.
