Sunday Check In

I have returned from a week at the beach. I think I am sunned out for the rest of the season. Could not have had a better weather week; hot and humid inland but very comfortable at the coast.

I am still trying to get caught up with things. I did not read a paper nor watch any television except for the preseason Patriots game on Thursday.

It is always good to come back home after a vacation. Take care everyone and I should resume posting tomorrow.

Have a good night.

Hope everyone had a good week. Looking forward to wading back into the action.

Welcome back! As for news, you didn't miss a thing. It's all the same as when you left.

Lisa,
my light at the end of the tunnel, so glad you stopped in. I did plenty of "reading" this week.

I'm glad you did. Can't wait to hear what you think about the books! :)

Welcome back, GYC. I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation. It's always good to refresh yourself.

No, you didn't miss much. Well, other than that Yves Smith tried to out Tyler Durden, and Leo Kolivakis (of Pension Pulse) left Naked Capitalism, moved to Zero Hedge and outed her!

Oh, and mainstream econmists continue to embarrass themselves with stunning displays of ignorance of the fundamental and structural problems plaguing the economy.

In other words, nothing much has changed.

Is the hurricane effecting you where you are at?

I believe you called this one with your "cash for 'blank'" analysis : )

Latest in Stimulus: 'Cash for Refrigerators'

Beginning late this fall, the program authorizes rebates of $50 to $200 for purchases of high-efficiency household appliances.

I'm waiting for the 'cash for canned goods' program, or maybe the 'cash for toilet paper' program, or how about 'cash for cash's sake' program?
Who would have ever thought that you could actually borrow yourself rich by buying disposable products, genius, pure genuis.

I just got a call from the dealership. The RX-8 is in Austin. I'm going to finalize the paperwork tomorrow or Wednesday, and take possession on Saturday.
