Well we get to get away from market fixation tomorrow. Actually I have so much work to do other than market stuff I’ll spend a fair amount of time painting one of the walls in my office.
But I hope that you all have a Thanksgiving that is meaningful to you–maybe around family or friends. I will have a nice meal with family—but will bow out of the 6 hours of chit-chat, but it is always nice to get caught up a bit for a few hours with people.
My wife and I talk about thankfulness quite often. Usually when we think we have more than our share of bad luck with cars or something else unimportant. It almost always comes down to having relatively good health, families we love and are supportive and a decent roof over our heads. Money kind of brings up the rear-her and I have no real reason to complain. I’ve been relatively poor and I have been relatively wealthy and wealthy is better by a tiny amount, but I am not sure having money in the bank makes me any happier.
What makes me as happy as about anything is to see all the folks on this website – the exchange of ideas and the civil discourse. I’m not sure if someone would have told me that in 17 years of website publishing that only 2 folks would have to be ‘banned’ out of the thousands of folks we have here every week and month that I would have believed it–most certainly I wouldn’t have. But the folks here are just the best and it gives me great pride and happiness to ‘hang out with you all’.
