Sorry I’ve been away for so long folks. A sick child, then sick parents, shopping for a new car, home projects and some very interesting books have all conspired to keep away from the blog for far too long. I’m getting back in the flow again though.
Speaking of a sick child, we had to take him to the Dr. It’s the first time a child has been to the doctor other than well child visit for quite some time. Possibly 14 or 15 months, if I remember correctly. Then of course I had to go. It has been at least 18 months for me. It’s all that local, non processed food!
We did buy a new car recently, which I’ll be writing up in the near future for Groovy Green. Shopping for a car when you’re eco conscious is an interesting experience.
Not a huge surprise, but the housing market shit has finally hit the fan. I read a WSJ blurb last week that stated that all the investment banks have reported over $100Billion in losses so far. And that was before the string of announcements this week. Seems as though the economy is heading for a recession or maybe worse.
The idiot in charge is talking about sending out rebates for us strapped Americans. Unfortunately I haven’t met too many people who plan to spend it if they get. Most plan to save it or use it to payoff a debt. I’m not sure that’s exactly what they have in mind for it, but what can you expect? I plan to use it to buy some staple foods and then save the rest! Hey, I’m no worse than the rest. Of course, I feel really bad about the fact that my kids and grandkids will have to pay for this stupid attempt at a bailout.
That’s all for now. Hopefully work will slow down some so I can do a little more writing.
