That fence project I mentioned?  A shipping fiasco means it won't be done this weekend.  Three weeks of fence-fixing! Links We Liked Political Calculations compares and contrasts their dividend cut indicator with the Atlanta Fed's GDPNow indicator, finding it a bit more pessimistic on current Q2 2015 conditions. Free By 50 does the math - … [Read more...]

Is there anything more annoying than fixing a fence?  Well, anything to keep it going another 5 years is worth it, I suppose.  (With material I already have.  I guess it's just a 'free labor from me' sort of deal.) You know, and keep the dog penned in. You folks know I have a podcast segment, right?  Here's my latest!  Go subscribe to … [Read more...]

Happy Birthday (yesterday), Mom! Links We Liked! At Financial Uproar, a paean to working... even if you have the ability not to work.  (Of course a site sarcastically named Don't Quit Your Day Job is going to link to it!).

First Month Living Without a Car

Recently, I moved to San Francisco and as part of the move I decided to sell my vehicle and live car-less. I felt (and feel) that I could get most of my transportation around the city done with bicycle or public transportation. So long as I can get to/from work and to/from a grocery store, then I should be fine. I’d like to report in on my progress … [Read more...]

It's a conspiracy - I was trying to write a new calculator on the Macbook and I got the dreaded "white screen of death" (it's restoring from backup as we speak).  So, yeah, I'm writing this entry on the PC - I've got to be careful or I'll fall back in love with this huge monitor... Links we Liked! At Philosophical Economics - an excellent look … [Read more...]

Happy Valentine's Day!  We love our readers so we're here, of course, to send you off our site to some other sites and articles that we enjoy. Ironic how these weekend things work, isn't it?
