Happy New Year for 2010!

I have a bit of time today as it is very cold and snowing here. Any regular readers know that I run on both solar power and high temperatures so I will not be going anywhere today.

A Note of Thanks and Plans for the Future
First off I wanted to say thanks for everyone that stops in here and makes things fun for me. I enjoy writing about the crazy financial world and I am glad that some find the content here to be informative, helpful, or just funny. I aim to please!

With 2010 rolling in you may see some changes here at Economic Disconnect. The major one is that I may not be posting as often and this is for two reasons:
1) There is not much to write about. A long time ago I used to have fun with headlines and used sarcasm to try and warn against crazy monetary policies. Now my "fake" news is real day in day out. In any time in history (or in any country not named the USA) this would have consequences, all now just shrug and move along. Case in point, this long list of "In 2009 I Learned That..." from The Reformed Broker that includes such silliness as:
-Stuart Varney (Fox Business Network): it is possible to borrow a trillion dollars, print a trillion dollars and nationalize a big chunk of the American economy, and still see the biggest nine month stock market rally in three generations!
-Cody Willard (Fox Business Network's Happy Hour): when the Republican/Democrat Regime in power redistributes trillions of dollars from the renters and savers to the bankers, most bank stocks will go up. A lot.
-Lawrence McDonald (Author, A Colossal Failure of Common Sense): $10 trillion will always buy you 4000 DOW points.
-Howard Lindzon (Elevator Inspector): the FED is running the best Ponzi scheme EVER.
These are all both funny and sad at the same time.

So that said, I may have either a lack of material or a lack of interest in writing about the same thing every single day. Of course I love finance too much to stay away, but maybe a bit less would be better.

2)I need to get back into some kind of shape. Between the holidays and a busy work schedule I have gained 7 pounds over the past 2 months and I am never, ever over 150 lbs! This needs to come off as my yearly Caribbean vacation comes in March or April. To that end I have a brand new heavy bag/speed bag/double end bag set up in the basement so I can train like in the old boxing days. This will come in handy should Bill Gross ever take me up on the steel cage match I have challenged him to several times!

So yes posting may be a little lighter, but the posts may be longer and more broad in coverage so that may make up for the numbers.

In any case I look forward to another year of back and forth as we walk along a path never tried before.

Happy New Year!

Have a good night.

Happy New Year, GYC.

I wanted to request Black Sabbath's The Writ for Friday Night Entertainment, but apparently it's been removed from YouTube. So instead I'll request Air Dance.

Lot of football left to be played.

Happy New Year! (in about another hour CST)

Watchtower's personal think'n ahead thoughts:

1. Quit worrying about the current state of affairs, if it blows it blows, I've prepared the best I can.

2. It's been 10 years since I've done a mountain bike race, thinking of doing one this year.
At 45 years old I'm not getting any younger and life is short.

3. Take more adventurous vacations with my wife and daughter, once again, life is short.

4. Fish more.

5. Start using a timer and set limits when I'm surfing the net (not to worry GYSC this is usually my first stop).


Oh yeah, did I mention life is short?

getyourselfconnected said...

OOOOH!
Fish more!

my man! I am a smallmouth guy

Happy New Year.

Don't worry so much about the future. Just prepare the best you can and let what happens happen.

That's about all any of us can do.

Good luck in getting ready for the vacation. I'm just wanting to get healthier in general. Take off a few pounds, eat healthier, stop working so hard.

Too much stress is not good.

Don't be a stranger, Get. You have my e-mail. LOL

With respct to your current state of mind, I feel similarly discouraged at times - I've just come out of a 2 week posting lull. But now that I'm writing again, it's almost as if there's too much material to work with. I feel like I'm going to go on a real tear - I'm seriously revved-up....

I had to intentionally cut short my latest post on Washington, D.C. New Year's Resolutions. I could have gone on & on & on & on....

So hang in there!

Best wishes for the New Year!
