Stock Market

I am far from a economic expert, and the following may come off as naive, but I had some ideas earlier while watching the news.

I'm tired of this.

I was uncharacteristically watching the news earlier, when some dour newscaster spoke of how the Dow was down again today. Ya' think? What a shock. Isn't this like why you're not supposed to weigh yourself every day if you are trying to lose weight? As soon as you see the scale go up a few ounces you lose heart and have a nice eating binge.

OR, like if all of the people on a boat floating on the sea stand on the right side of the boat it leans that way (at least on Sesame Street). So in panic the nice people all go to the other side of the boat and it leans that way. If everyone stayed where they were in the first place, would the ship settle out?

I guess it's likely I am being a little cavalier about these economic issues, and we have tightened the budget so I can't say it hasn't effected us. I guess I shouldn't watch the news if I don't want to worry about it every evening when that sour-faced guy comes back on.

That's all from the peanut gallery.

I'm right there with you on this one Amy. I it sort of like driving by a car accident and everyone slows down to look. It just makes it worse for the rest of us trying to get to work...

We've tightened up the budget belt as well... maybe we should all get together and eat some beans and rice or PB&J.

I made this "Mexican Minestone" the other night for dinner and Randy called it "Economic Depression Stew."
