Well, quite a week in the market. Quite a month. The market seems to be anticipating better days ahead. Even the job numbers out today were less horrible than expected.
Quite a week for me medically, as I’ve had a cavity filled, found out I need reading glasses, and was stung by something that caused my whole arm to swell up. The latter required a trip to the doctor, a tetanus shot, and antibiotics. Thank goodness we don’t have Obamacare and that I don’t live in Massachusetts, as I was able to see my doctor right away without being placed on a waiting list for a few months waiting for an appointment. Looks like I get to keep the arm. For now…

As for me, I don’t know where he was born and I really don’t care. I enjoy watching the back and forth between those telling the “truth” and those telling the “lies.” I’m just not sure who is who. Or is that whom? I read somewhere once that people seem to define "truth" as "information that supports my position." They define "lies" as "information challenges what I think I already know."
