Well, kids

I am off to the tropics for a week. Keep the markets from crashing while I am away, ya hear?



A little bet with myself: I think that when I get back the 10 year treasury yield will be at least 25BP below the 2 year treasury yield (25+ BP inverted).

Re: Well, kids

Have a great trip. Can you resist the pull of the computer/internet?

When my sister told a friend of hers that she received an email from her brother on a cruise to the Marquesas, her friend said: "Why?"

Re: Well, kids

I'm back. The only time I hit a computer was to send my boss an e-mail telling him I was stuck in Puerto Rico because the Northeast was hit by two feet of snow and all the flights were cancelled. Hard to be upset about a couple extra days of vacation, although the 4:45AM redeye flight this morning to get home makes up for some of it.

Looks like I was a bit off: only 10BP inversion. Still, tells me we gonna have a recession by the end of the year. Get your crash helmets on, guys.

Re: Well, kids

So, how did the vacation treat you Brew? The markets did not fall apart while you were gone but the volume declined precipitously . BTW, it is looking like a green light on the O## position.

Re: Well, kids

Vacation was very good. Its just the spill I took on the ice when I got home that sucked. Fortunately, I took most of the beating instead of my toddler (who I was holding).

Good for you on the position. I think it wouldn't be a bad place to spend a few years.

I sure hope so- I have a pile of cash I need to dump into the market.... I have a good % of my 401k contributions going into a MM account right now (although the 4% yield isn't totally horrible), and I want to unload.

It's much better than fixed-income (bond) funds.

Brewer,

"Would someone please give the President a BJ so we can impeach him already?"

OK, damn it. I'm gay but if no one else will then I consider it my patriotic duty.

Actually, I am starting to think that the whole "gettting loaded and shooting a hunting buddy" thing is turning out to be Cheney's version of the blue dress.

I have to say, for all of the horrible things the administration and Cheney personally ahve done, why choose this to lambaste him?

I cant take it anymore.

Yes, both of them occurred as a result of shooting someone in the face.

Helen...I need to be impeached too.
