Gad I felt like Alice in Wonderland there for a while. Trying to tweak the sizing after some brainiac switched the fonts was no easy task but I think I've managed to get back to were we once belong. They just can't leave well enough alone. Maybe I'll feel confident enough to try and send them another venomous expression of my displeasure. Now which pill did I take was it the blue one?
Now what else to gripe about? We have our 5th straight day of liquid sunshine here. Tried to get out yesterday to get some much needed errands and repairs done. I thought oh good the sun is out I'll pop out and fix the fence on the back 40 (that's feet here). Popped into the bathroom for quick drain the lizard moment only to come out to find it hailing and coming down in buckets. Back to fiddle farting on the web because after all there's only so many times you can clean the kitchen. Nothing's really that important that it can't wait till tomorrow or maybe the next day. But here it could be the day after that or the day after that or infinitum. I did find a new source for my Friday beaver pics. Hope they won't mind if I borrow a few.
Oops did I forget bank fails again this week? Only one in Michigan. This is coming close the the savings and loan debacle of the 1980s. I believe there were a little over 500 S&Ls that bit the dust then and we're around 400 now. It's not over yet either. Back then it was "junk bonds" that tanked things. Today? Just slap another name on the paper and you get the same results. Now it's "hedge funds" or as Warren Buffet calls them financial weapons of mass destruction. And what did I see on the TV just last night?
"Retirees looking for high return for your retirement portfolio?" blathered the announcer. "Municipal bonds are the way to go." he continued. Oh yeah I'm sure Alabama would just love to sell you their bad debt that they'll be defaulting on here soon. I wouldn't touch that with a 39 and a half foot pole. Unless you have superfocus vision and three or four contract lawyers backing you up. And the game goes on only the players and the names are changed to protect the guilty.
